To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Like others, the motor died within 5 minutes of opening the box. Side hatch was shut, batteries replaced, all in all it's just a cheaply made and very overpriced cash-in on the latest fad. Don't waste your money on it and definitely don't get your kids' hopes up about playing with this.
Preordered this 3 months ago. First one worked for about 30 shots & the.motor wouldn't start up. Just had a replacement sent, fired 10 darts & quit working. Yes, I made sure the orange door was closed. Been using Rayovac batteries. Gonna try a different brand battery or I'll have to return another. So disappointing!
We got this product and it didn't work. Basically, the motor didn't work when we put good batteries into it. This is/was because one of the internal safety buttons wasn't being depressed correctly when the jam window was closed. You can take the gun apart and fix this yourself. it's reasonably easy. If you have the same problem, just search youtube for "NERF FORTNITE AR-L SCAR Repair" and the dude's video will walk you through the fix. We used cardboard instead of plastic shims to raise the safety switch so it engaged better with the jam window, and it worked fine.
I brought this for my eight year old and I’m very disappointed it works when it want to, there’s no power, motor is weak etc. I brought a cheaper nerf gun at Walmart and it’s 10x better. So please don’t waste your money on name only. Said part he was so excited to receive it.
I wish I could give this a higher rating. It came as described and my grandson was really excited to play with it. It was his only requested gift for his 7th birthday. We put the batteries in and he took it out to play with it and it stopped working after 10 minutes. We tried various different batteries thinking that was the problem. He did not misuse it and we couldn't find anything wrong with it other than it just didn't operate. We ended up returning it. We've bought other Nerf brand items and have never had a problem.
read the reviews online about half said they arrived not working We ordered two So far one doesn’t work at all and one does Have sent one back for replacement by Amazon and will see if any better The second one we ordered works but you have to hit it Poor quality to get the popular Fortnight name out there Now the manual blue fortnight pistol— great no problems
Beyond disappointed and should of read the reviews more. Literally just opened it for Xmas and the motor went out after ONE SHOT! New set of batteries, jam door closed....just awful. Now I'm reading all the reviews that had the same issue. This company should be ashamed. I will never buy from them again, ever. Ill be sure to tell my family and friends. DO NOT BUY AND MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE WE ALL DID! Guarantee if it works for a day, itll eventually go within a week.
Worked great for few hours first day but by second day the motor wouldn't respond when pressing trigger. Thought it was batteries but replacing them didn't change anything. Playing around with it, the motor came back on but now doesn't shoot at all anymore. Literally a day this overpriced junk lasted. Wasn't even hardly used and was not mishandled at all.
