English term or phrase: awesome venting
The Laser Challenge pistol is a small compact little gun, when used correctly, can be deadly. It has grey colors and AWESOME VENTING! It uses a fresnel type focusing lens that emits an infared beam at 100 feet when all of the batteries are charged. The big downfall I noticed when using the gun is the horrible beeping noise it puts out from its cheap paper speaker. One fine trick I learned was when patroling a quiet area , in search of your enemy, shut off your gun. When you spot the enemy or think he or she is behind the next turn, muffle the speaker and click on the gun while quickly pressing the arm button. They won't know what hit 'em!

French translation:une puissance terrifiante.
Explanation:
venting évoque l'idée de souffle qui, dans le cas d'une arme, évoque l'idée de puissance. Mais c'est au feeling !...

une évacuation d'air d'enfer


Explanation:
I'm assuming that this a gun used for laser tag. Am I right?
This is what I could come up with. Not a whole lot of French sites on the subject.

poussée remarquable


Explanation:
Intuitivement, en me basant sur le fait que "venting" a souvent le sens "d'évacuation".

Sinon: portée remarquable
(qui m'apparaît plus juste dans le contexte)
