I Bought 7 Broken Nerf Guns - Can I Fix Them?!

čas přidán 21. 06. 2019
I Bought 7 Broken Nerf Guns - Can I Fix Them?! This is my first time trying to fix broken nerf guns but I love challenging myself to try fixing new types of things. To fix these I tackle different issues including battery, circuit board, aftermarket ammunition, and drone controller problems. Let me know in the comments if you like watching me try to fix random stuff or if I should stick to game consoles.

About This Video: In this video I try to fix 7 broken nerf blasters: 2 Rival Phantom Corps Kronos XVIII-500 blasters, 1 Rival Apollo XV-700 blaster, 2 Rival Prometheus MXVIII-20K blasters, 1 N-Strike Elite Rhino-Fire blaster, and 1 N-Strike Elite TerraScout drone.


  • Imma start a nerf part company on eBay now... 😭 🤑

  • Tron, you're awesome! I love that you're trying new things even though you already know so much awesome stuff! It would be great to hear more about right to repair. People need to know it affects us all. Again, you're awesome, and please keep making awesome videos!

  • Thought I’d mention this to help folks out as I don’t have a channel. So one of our dogs chewed up my sons’ Xbox controller and the battery compartment lid was pretty bent and punctured, dog is 100lbs German Shepherd. I thought if I put the lid in boiling water it might soften it up enough to press it into shape with a spoon or something. I left it in there for a couple of minutes and when I took it out it had returned about 95% to it’s original shape. I know some plastics have “memory” but didn’t expect this result. Snapped right back in place, not perfect

    • But really close for a hands off repair. Hope this helps someone.

  • The promithus battery is rechargeable

  • Hola...que tal...no sabia que hubiera tal variedad de estas pistolas....siempre pense que eran descartables, ya que son de plastico....buen trabajo Steve....saludos....

  • To be honest, I avoided clicking on this video because I thought I wouldn’t enjoy it. Upon watching, it was both fun and fresh just like Steve predicted. A+

  • you shouldve named your channel ronics electronics

  • i might send em my perses to fix cuz im trying to fix the problem

  • Can you fix my car bro

  • So I changed the spring on the Vulcan EBF 25 I have and it fits and operates fine except for the fact that when I cock it back, the firing mechanism keeps un-priming like after you fire it without me even touching the trigger. What do I do? Also ontop of that, when I activate the automatic mode, it will turn on but nothing happens and just makes odd noises. Is it the spring?

  • Can you fix mine and give it back to me

  • I love this god damn channel

  • Even you fix Nerf guns too! You are amazing

  • Put bought 1000s of those aftermarket darts and never had a problem maybe just that one gun but I would not, not recommend them i have had very good luck

  • Awesome video. Saw all the way through, no FF. 🥎💥🥎💥🔫😃👍

  • The big one with all the balls look so fun lol

  • 12:23 - 12:34 i can tell you if you talk to someone with a 3d printer and fusion 360/Sketchup and CAD program can make you a replica battery case door anyway fantastic fixes' I vote you throw in nerf guns restoration videos or whatever to your video game console restoration videos

  • 30:19 he shot us :(

  • Music is a little loud

  • This was so neat

  • The tab is an unjamming button which allows you to prime when already primes to clear jams

  • Anybody else have these as a kid and wonder how they work but always afraid to take apart? Just me?

  • Just love the live test firing!

  • Just fix something.

  • just print a 3d printed cover for the missing cover :P

  • How do you buy all those broken stuff?

  • Y do you sound like the back yard scientist

  • Why 700 dislikes?? :(

  • its so crazy that people just throw these things out/sell them as broken for such a small issue. if they took 3 minutes to look at it and see how it works they could easily fix it.

  • Superb video

  • *title* can I fix them? *Me* can you???

  • yeah fix more stuff man. the game consles can get a bit old after you do so many of them.

  • lol I would love one of them big miniguns haha my cats would go nuts chasing them balls everywhere lmao

  • Probably should heat the plastic some.

  • the orange thing is a un jamming button :)

  • Hey if you ever do more slide the darts in not push them in it damages the darts and the rhino fire jams a lot not just cause darts you have to push it down halfway then shoot

  • This triggers me 😉😉

  • Yo a lock wow

  • This is a great additional content for your videos. Any repairs and fixes you do, consoles or not, they are are satisfying to watch. 🤓

  • Watching this makes my brain hurt

  • They aren't nerf guns they are nerf blasters

  • I want the rihnofire and 2 50 round mags

  • "Hello, I bought 13 dead bodies, lets see if I can fix them and maybe even turn a profit!"

  • Super Fun Video Bra!

  • now can you buy broken desktop pc GPUs and single handedly solve the gpu crisis by fixing them

  • Not sure why this came up in my notifications 2 years late, but that orange tab on the back of the rival blaster is to show you a round is primed and locks so you don't jam it by forcing another round in. Anyway, good video.

  • Probably not going to find that dart

  • 5:48 he loads ammo and then fires nothing out of the gun, declaring it fixed. What?

  • *battery empty* Seller: broken

  • Yeah on that drone one, you totally should've gone for both sticks from a controller one and then you suddenly have a mod improvement over the original as I suspect the analog potentiometer is of a higher quality and looks better anyways.

  • It’s a release for a stuck ball or anything not working properly , there are at least 2 safety buttons on nerf guns.

  • I don’t know why I enjoy these so much but you do a helluva job. This dude seems like the kinda guy you’d have a beer with.

  • Me at 2:00am watching how to fix toys. Also me who can’t fix things on his level and who don’t have kids so never gonna buy Nerf guns lol

  • Awesome video !

  • Where did you get the broken nerfs? I'm looking for some that can be modded into cosplay pieces (need to be non-functional for conventions)

  • Metal Gear?!

  • mr fix it

  • cool

  • You fix anything you want. Nerf gun repair will have principles that can be used elsewhere and I'm always interested in repair principles & techniques.

  • I like the switch up :D

  • This was a fun video! Great stuff!

  • 15:22 every morning routine

  • Fun fact: Nerf Rival are considered a firearm and thus illegal to own in Australia.

    • That's So stupid to ban a toy that shoots nerf balls

  • where the hell do you buy all these broken things???

  • I'm watching this in 2021 and my guess is you're still picking up Nerf Ammo in your studio :)

  • When I was younger I always wanted the rhinofire nerf gun, and to think someone sold theirs as broken just because they weren’t the right bullets hurts that part of me.

  • Yep, I like you doing different things! The Wish one was good too :)

  • RIVAL is stupid fun

  • As a German, I'm shocked at how sophisticated gun toys for American children are. Like, over here it's suuuuper rare that children shoot around with anything other than water guns. Even though Soft Air guns are legal here (for people older than 14), the last time I saw someone using one was last year, and they were the only one I've seen since elementary school. Could it be that Americans' fascination for guns stems from them being so complex and sophisticated even as toys?

    • @Felina die letze z.B. sieht auch nicht gerade ungefährlich aus. Man könnte wer weiß was damit machen. Ist vielleicht etwas weit hergeholt aber man kann alles so umbauen.🤷🏻‍♀️

    • @Marleen Mensch, ich dachte schon, ich wär die einzige, die das so sieht :D Aber ja, das was dort so fetter blaster sind, sind bei uns allerhöchstens nur mit Wasser befüllbar 😅 Ich find das auch krass, dass da irgendwie niemand was gegen sagt, weil's ja "nur Spielzeuge" sind...

    • Vorallem die nerv guns hier haben eher so weiche Pfeile und sind nicht so "aggressiv". Man könnte denken, dass die fast schon echte Waffen sind

  • LODI (Idol) nice one

  • can you fix it for me please

  • I have some broken nerf guns I need to fix them

  • Honestly love these different types of repair videos. Also really showcases how your skillset is so strong in just electronics in general and can be utilized across the board, not just restricted to game consoles. Great work!

  • it will be nice and fresh to see more things you fix other than gaming console cause u know its should always round up if "you can fix it".

  • Parts aren’t impossible to find. Ever hear of Out of Darts?

  • This is a cake walk compared to electronics.

  • Love this too! Anything you can fix, i'm here to watch. So very satisfying to see things come back to useful life.

  • I like something new

  • I smiled when he used the xbox analog stick lol

  • Cool seeing you work on something you've got no experience with. Don't love the idea of a Nerf gun with electronics in it. Although that Prometheus is pretty cool.

  • 3021: I bought Earth broken. Can I fix it?

  • Keep up the variety of videos!

  • Man... i would love to be your apprentice. This man fixes EVERYTHING!

  • I like the change of pace! Fun video!

  • Remember it’s nerf or nothing

  • I think repairs like this are great. It still will demonstrate the thinking prosses needed to repair things. Repair is all about the thought prosses and understanding what it is the item is doing and finding a way to make it do what you want it to do.

  • POV: you flinched when he "pulled the trigger" on the 3rd gun while trying to fix it

  • steve out side trying to record steve:i am going to fix 13 cars and see if i can fix them or not

  • gief moar vids like this

  • What the

  • 16:05 He happy XD nerf gun make adult happy too :) i luv it

  • This was so much fun to watch recoment for more of these 😎


  • Checkout adam savages nerrf gun build👍

  • Well this is different 👍👌

  • Myy Favorite part if repairing is the Bringing it apart

  • Wow that drone is sweet!

  • Rival kronos is very easy to fix

  • Could it be the air restricter building up pressure and not going out

  • "the orange tab" is a un jamming buttion incase the ball gets stuck :)
