One Mega Missile
|Average Retail Price(s):||
The Titan AS-V.1 (previously known as the Titan AS-V or the Big Bad Titan) is a 2003 Nerf Action Blaster that can hold one Mega Missile. The ammunition, the Mega Missile, is very large. The Big Bad Titan's name comes from 1998's Big Bad Bow, another previously discontinued blaster now available for purchase. It has a reverse Tactical Rail, designed so that small blasters such as the Reflex IX-1 and Scout IX-3 can lock onto the blaster. Larger blasters may be attached, but this is not recommended, due to inconvenience from the size, shape and weight of the resulting blaster. There is some controversy over whether this blaster is safe. If fired at point blank range towards a person, it can easily bruise them. It can also potentially break fragile objects. Thus, it is commonly banned from use in a Nerf war. A modified Titan can reach ranges over 100 feet. If modified to fire darts, it can fire them 400 to 500 feet.
The Titan AS-V.1 is the main blaster in the Unity Power System. It has either a red, blue or greem body, with the various paint schemes found in the Unity Power System or bought by itself, in a multi-pack of the Titan and Scout IX-3, and the Hulk Abomination Blaster respectively. It has a pump with a black grip that is the same color as the body. There is a power gauge that measures how much pressure there is in the blaster. When overpumped, all the pressure is released from the air tank and fires the Mega Missile. The blaster is pumped similar to bouncing on a pogo stick, and when pumped, the needle in the power gauge moves. The gauge faces up when the blaster is being pumped, due to it looking like a pogo stick, and faces forward when being held like a normal blaster. The Titan has two firing triggers and one big fat orange firing button. The rear trigger is used to fire the Titan, while the front trigger is used to fire the Hornet AS-6. When the trigger is pulled, the trigger sends air to the trigger to open the air valve which released air into one of the six barrels. The button is used to fire the Scout IX-3 via a piston that comes out to push a button on the top of the Scout's slide. The button releases the catch on the Scout's plunger, which releases it and fires the dart.
Internals Editair tank, overpressure valve, firing trigger, secondary firing trigger, firing button and air delivery tube. These parts work well and reliably.
Position in Theme Edit
The Titan AS-V.1 is the main blaster in the Unity Power System. It acts as a rocket launcher, and fires its rockets far due to its extremely high pressure storage in its air tank. Because of its versatility in modification, it is usually used in blaster integrations. It is also commonly modified to fire darts or stefans, as well as its pump commonly being plugged. But, when modified to fire darts, it is commonly banned from Nerf Wars, due to its extremely high power when modded to fire darts or stefans, and its ability to hurl darts 400 to 500 feet due to its high pressure.
Blaster Co-relation Edit
The Titan does not seem to be related to any sort of blaster, due to it being a rocket launcher. The nearest blaster that it can relate to is the Big Bad Bow, due to it firing somewhat similar ammunition, and at different ranges.
Like all other blasters, the Titan AS-V.1 has faults. One major problem is the fact that it is banned from most Nerf Wars. This is due to its extremely high power. Another problem is its extremely horrendous rate of fire.
How to fire Edit
- By itself
Step 1 - Load a mega missile onto the front post.

Step 3 - Pull the rear trigger to fire the blaster.
- Firing the Scout IX-3 from the Titan
Step 1 - Load one dart into the Scout's muzzle.
Step 2' - Pull the slide back and release to prime the blaster.
Step 3 - Push the big fat orange fire button on the left side of the blaster to fire the Scout.
- Firing the Hornet AS-6 from the Titan
Step 1 - Load one dart into each of the Hornet's six barrels.
Step 2 - Pull the slide on the Hornet forward to reset the "Shots Left" indicator.
Step 3 - Pump the blaster 20-30 times. Do not overpump the Hornet or it could ruin the blaster.
Step 4 - Pull the front trigger of the Titan to fire a dart, or push the Hornet's blast button to fire all 6 at once.
- The Big Bad Titan was originally released in 2001 under the Action Blasters theme and discontinued, but re-introduced in 2005 and still for sale today.
- There were refill packs of 1 Mega Missile in Hasbro's webpage on the replacement parts section for some time. This service was later discontinued.
