** The silent, repeated thunks of the [=RapidStrike=] CS-18 feeding darts into the flywheels. Doubly so with the [[MoreDakka HyperFire]].

Added DiffLines:

* MostAnnoyingSound: The grinding noise when the [=HyperFire=] can't feed the next dart due to deformed dart shape.
* MostWonderfulSound: For all it's faults, the MEGA Centurion's "KA-THUNK!" when firing is satisfying. Most MEGA blasters have a beefy noise for their major plungers to launch the larger darts.

** Slam-firing a blaster, particularly ones of large capacity unless the sound is too obnoxious like the Revonix 360.
** Flywheels being ready to fire in general if you're the one with them, especially with battery mods and faster motors that make an even more scary noise (to your opponents).

* CrackIsCheaper: Major Nerf hobbyists spend a good deal on blasters and ammo alike. Modders spend even more on parts. In particular, second-hand, out-of-production items like the red-dot sight went for as much as $200 US on eBay before it was revived with the Modulus series.

Many 2011-2012 Super Soakers (ones more compatible with stock attachments and tactical rail accessories) also go upwards of $100 US or more on Amazon.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: A certain breed of Nerf owners bemoan the transition from direct-plunger action dart blasters to the reversed-plunger blasters, and others weren't pleased with the introduction of electric-only powered Nerf blasters. With the launch of the Vortex disc blasters, yet more complainers are laying the hate on the different system.

*** Quite a few male Nerfers are complaining about them as well. The main complaint seems to be that their too girly for a RatedMForManly sport like Nerf. However, some of the other common complaints include a reduction in firepower, accuracy, or just plain usability compared to other Nerf blasters for the sake form over function. Some of those complaints are more due to [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch unfamiliarity]], since many (though not all) Rebelle blasters share internals with existing blasters.

** The Rebelle Line has drawn criticism from some female Nerfers who think that Hasbro is trying too hard to market the dart blasters to girls.

** Amusingly, some of the carbine-style automatic blasters [[hottip:*:The Stampede]] feature similar problems to ACTUAL gas-piston carbines, wherein a specific type of mechanical failure makes them shoot uncontrollably until they deplete their magazine. There's ShownTheirWork, and then there's replicating an actual mechanical fault in real weaponry...
