Feeling like a Devastator Marine!
There are plenty of people complaining about jams, sure it jams if you don't have the darts pushed in ALL the way. Also, the on/off switch is the jam removal slide on the left side, when open pulling the spooling trigger will result in the battery not being used. My only problem was not having the right size screwdriver so I could put in the batteries. But this monster is fun to shoot!

Shock and Awe. Wish I could give it 50 stars.
Dominate the battlefield. This is no kids toy. Send foam darts of whistling freedom downrange. I ordered this for a Nerf birthday party I'm attending tomorrow with my youngest son. I expect to lay proper covering fire for him with this thing. If you're ordering this for your child, it's fairly heavy. Years of National Anthems, bacon, and commie hatred have allowed me to fire it one handed. I'm also 38 which undoubtedly helps.

Launches darts a LONG way...
This whistles and launches a LONG way, so be careful where you aim, also, it can hurt if you're standing too close, other than that, great toy, especially from Nerf, would recommend.

Totally useless. Totally fun.
This gun is ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous. It is not very accurate, not very fast, and ineffective in every way. None of that matters, however, because once you take hold of it, you feel like a god among mortals, the star of your very own action film, putting down fools and laying out justice with every comically over-sized dart.
The engineer in me can go on and on about how the rate of fire is not very high and the range is not that great and the larger darts do nothing (except maybe intimidation) that a small dart couldn't do, but the kid in me can't hear him over the awesome fun that comes from firing such huge darts like a belt-fed grenade launcher. As a Nerf weapon up against other Nerf weapons, this is totally useless (like all Mega products). As a toy, a thing to have fun with and create joy, this is a 110% success.
Assuming you have the cash for a second Nerf blaster (because like i said, this is totally useless in a Nerf war), ask yourself this: when you saw this gun, did you immediately that one scene from Scar Face (i.e. "Say hello to my little friend!") that everybody remembers, and/or imagine a heavy gunfire sound-effect overlaid on the Nerf motor whine with each shot? If yes, then you should get this, because life is short and fun is good for you.
Also, I bet it would be great for any actual child, assuming they are A) large enough to hold it (I am 5'11" and it is almost as big as my torso) and B) not going to be up against a lot of other kids in a Nerf fight.

Works very well. Scary when my 8-year-old unleashes a full round on me.

Fun. Powerful. Use Caution.
Our 9 yr old is in love with this. Works great. It shoots the darts very fast. They are larger darts, too. So they sting a little. Make sure you get Nerf goggles with this for the kids to all wear. And don't let them shoot from too close.

Awesome addition to the NERF arsenal
The Mastodon is a very fun gun. It shoots fully automatic and fire 24 Nerf MEGA arrows. It fires the rounds pretty quickly so if you're in a battle you are going to want to have extra ammo to reload. Sliding more arrows into the slots is a breeze and doesn't take too much time. It is a kid friendly gun if they are strong enough to lift it. My 4-year old son can lift it and shoot it but he is probably the smallest you could be to lift and fire this thing appropriately. It is a beast. If the MEGA arrows have any damage or wear, they can jam the Mastodon but it is a quick fix and just make sure you are using relatively new, non-damaged arrows.

So much fun with this nerf gun.
Best fun I have had with my kids in years. If you get a Nerf gun go for the Mega one. It makes you fill like a Terminator as you mow down your kids. LOL. It is a little heavy but the strap helps.

It's as big as a Mastodon.
The BTA-MALL package was undamaged and well packed, but the individual packing for the Mega Mastodon was crushed in several places, opened and then re-taped again. I looked at the Nerf gun and it looked OK and I just hope it works all right when it gets opened again at Christmas. I gave it 4 stars because of the original packaging being damaged, but reserve my final review until it is opened, assembled and used.

Great Product, this is my second Mega mastodon as ...
Great Product, this is my second Mega mastodon as 1 just wasn't enough when having epic nerf battles with my son and his friends around the house. The additional Nerf N-Strike Elite Mega Darts are a must as these things get lost easily even though they're over double the size of traditional nerf darts. Plus with the auto fire you will clear all 24 darts quick and it's nice to have a stash of darts to make for a quick reload
