Nerf Fortnite BASR-L Bolt Action
INCLUDES 6-DART CLIP AND 12 NERF DARTS: Comes with a clip that holds up to 6 darts and includes 12 Official Nerf Elite darts that are tested and approved for performance and quality
The Nerf Fortnite BASR-L blaster looks and feels like it belongs in the popular video game, and it performs well enough to be fun for younger players. The blaster fires darts at a range of 15 feet and is not quite as accurate as some of our previous winners, but it's good enough that kids won't get discouraged by a few misses. The darts travel 15 feet and have an adjustable range, so they can be fired farther than some blasters (the range is adjusted by winding a dial on the blaster). The darts have a small ring at the end, so they're easier to pick up from the ground (and to avoid knocking down any nearby trees). The blaster has a smaller clip than other Nerf blasters, so it's better suited to younger players; it's also easy to load and remove. The range and accuracy limitations of the blaster keep it from being a top pick for older children, but it's a lot of fun for younger kids and teens who like Fortnite.
NERF Elite 2.0 CS-6 Phoenix Motorized Blaster
INCLUDES REMOVABLE SCOPE: Comes with removable scope so you can customize your blaster during battle
The Phoenix CS-6 is a motorized Nerf blaster that fires darts up to 90 feet (27 meters). The CS-6 is an upgrade from the standard Nerf blasters, and it's best suited for older kids. The blaster's motorized feature makes it fast and easy to use, and it's packed with features, like the tactical rails and stock and barrel attachment points. The Phoenix CS-6 comes with 12 Nerf darts (6 clips + 6 darts), and it's upgrade-ready, so you can customize it for every mission. The blaster is also reasonably priced, which makes it a good entry-level motorized Nerf blaster. The Phoenix CS-6 isn't as sturdy as the Elite 24-6, and it doesn't have as many options, but it's a solid choice for beginners and older kids.
NERF Star Wars Amban Phase-Pulse Blaster
MEASURES OVER 50 INCHES LONG: The blaster measures 50.25 inches long (1.27 meters) and comes fully assembled in premium packaging, perfect for display
The Nerf Rebelle line has been the first Hasbro blasters for girls, and the Star Wars version is especially cool. It's powered by six AA batteries, so it's much louder than the Nerf Rebelle line for boys, and it has a handle you pull back to prime the blaster, just like a real gun. The blaster is camouflaged to look like armor, and it has a scope with an illuminated lens and blaster sounds. The blaster is exciting to use, and it's even better for kids who are obsessed with Star Wars. However, the blaster also has some problems. First, the blaster is so loud that it's fine for a child up to about age 8, but not great for kids 9 and up. And, while blasters for boys usually come with 10 darts in the package, the Star Wars blaster only comes with 10 darts, so you'll have to buy more. The blaster is also more fragile than blasters for boys, and it's comparatively lightweight. The blaster also isn't waterproof, so it's less durable than boys' blasters.
NERF Fortnite BASR-R Bolt Action -- Blaster Includes 3 Bush Targets
INCLUDES 6-DART CLIP AND 6 NERF DARTS: Comes with a removable clip that holds up to 6 darts and includes 6 Official Nerf Elite darts that are tested and approved for performance and quality
The NERF Fortnite BASR-R blaster is a lot of fun, and it's a good blaster for beginners. It's relatively inexpensive, which makes it easy to steal from a kid or sibling, and it's surprisingly accurate, firing darts with a 90% accuracy rate. The blaster is easy to handle, and it has a clip-fed design that makes reloading easy and helps prevent jams. The blaster is also fun to reload, since each dart has a little pull ring on the bottom that allows you to pull a dart from the clip, load it into the blaster, and pull the trigger to fire the dart. The blaster fires up to 6 darts at a time, and though we didn't have time to test its range, the darts are pretty fast, so it's a good option for indoor use. Unfortunately, the darts don't have much throw distance, so you'll be lucky to hit anything farther than 10 feet. The blaster requires 4 AA batteries, and it comes with 3 foam dart targets. The blaster comes in two color schemes: blue and yellow or green and gray. The blaster comes with 6 darts, but you'll probably want to swap them out for official Elite darts. The official Elite darts cost $5.99 for 100 darts, and they're available in several colors, including rose gold, camo, neon, and more.
The Nerf Modulus Day/Night Zoom Scope is a low-cost, long-range targeting scope for Nerf Modulus blasters ($30). It's compatible with any Nerf Modulus blaster, but it's best used with Nerf Modulus blasters that feature tactical rails (the gun shown in the images). The scope features an adjustable, semi-transparent lens and is powered by four C batteries (not included). The lens also has a zoom function, and it has a red and green IR LED, which activates while the scope is focused in on those target areas. The scope's screen has an adjustable brightness and contrast, and features customizable reticles. The scope is lightweight, and it's comfortable to wear. It's durable, too, but it's made of plastic, so it's prone to scratches. The scope is easy to use, and it's fun to target shoot with. The scope is an affordable option, but it's best used on Nerf Modulus blasters that feature tactical rails.
NERF Elite 2.0 Eaglepoint Blaster RD-8 -- 8-Dart Drum
16 NERF ELITE DARTS, DART STORAGE, TACTICAL RAILS: Includes 16 Official Nerf Elite foam darts, built-in storage for 8 darts so you can reload fast, and 3 tactical rails for Nerf gear (sold separately)
The Nerf Elite 2.0 Eaglepoint RD-8 Blaster is a blast. It's comfortable, easy to control, and fires darts with great accuracy. The darts travel a great distance, and there's plenty of ammo on board, so you don't need to reload frequently. The dart storage on the body of the blaster is pretty cramped, though, so you'll probably want to store it somewhere besides the darts. The scope fits nicely on the blaster body, but the barrel is a little loose, so it's a little wobbly. The darts have a smooth, clean bounce, and they make a satisfying gun-like sound. The darts also look very cool, and they fit perfectly in the drum. The bolt action is smooth and easy, and the dart magazine holds 16 darts. The blaster is well made, and it's fun for kids of all ages.
The NERF Rival Red Dot Sight is a sturdy, lightweight, and accurate sight designed for shooting photos and videos. The sight is small enough to fit in a holster or your sidearm. The adjustable sight and mounting system made it easy to mount the sight on my NERF Rival, which didn't come with its own sights. It takes just a few seconds to adjust the sight to center your red dot on target. You can adjust the sight for elevation and windage, and it locks into place easily. The sight has a 1-7/16-inch eye relief, which is just right for an adult's eyes, and it's anti-reflective, so it won't interfere with night shots. The sight's field of view is 40 feet, which is wide enough for most shooting scenarios. The sight's low mounting position mimics that of a red dot on a firearm, so the sight is ideal for shooting at long distances.
Nerf Modulus Long Targeting Range Upgrade Kit
N-Strike Elite blasters and Elite darts deliver the ultimate in blaster performance
Nerf Modulus Long Range Targeting Upgrade Kit
The Nerf Modulus Long Range Targeting Upgrade Kit ($59.99) is the latest upgrade kit for the Nerf Modulus ($99.99). The Upgrade Kit adds 5 darts to the Nerf Modulus, and it comes with new darts that feature an extended range. The upgraded darts are see-through, and range up to 70 feet. The kit also includes two Modulus magazines, and three new Modulus Long Range Targeting Laser Sights ($29.99). The laser sights attach to the Nerf Modulus with a clip, and are red (for left-eye aiming) and green (for right-eye aiming). The laser sights are adjustable, so you can aim the laser sights at any target. You can replace the laser sights with Modulus darts, if you don't have the Upgrade Kit. The Upgrade Kit is a must-have for the Nerf Modulus, and it's well worth the money. The Upgrade Kit adds a lot of value, especially if you already bought the Nerf Modulus. The Nerf Modulus Long Range Targeting Upgrade Kit is a great gift for kids 8 and up.
Nerf A3700 Centurion Mega Blaster Toy with Folding Bipod
Easy-open, recyclable package: Ships in simple recyclable packaging that's easy to open and frustration free
The Nerf Centurion Mega Blaster comes with plenty of useful attachments and accessories, making it well-suited for both adults and kids. The blaster itself is impressive, easily staying on target at 100 feet (30 meters), and thanks to its bolt-action priming, it requires no batteries. The blaster also includes a number of accessories, including a vertical tactical rail for adding attachments, such as scopes and lasers, and a high-capacity 6-dart clip. The clip easily fits onto the blaster's barrel, and the included darts are solid, powerful, and consistent with Nerf's official specifications. The blaster is heavy, which makes it less portable than other devices, but it's a solid performer, and it's durable enough to withstand plenty of abuse. The included folding bipod is sturdy and makes it easy to get the perfect shot, and the blaster's size makes it well suited to both indoor and outdoor use. The blaster is heavy and a bit bulky, so it's less portable than other devices, but it's a solid performer.
NERF Fortnite Heavy SR Blaster
SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING: Ships in simple, recyclable packaging thats easy to open and frustration free
The Nerf Fortnite Heavy SR Blaster is the longest, heaviest, and most powerful Nerf blaster we've ever tested. It fires 6 mega darts in a row, and each one goes about 10 feet before they hit their target. The Wide Shot function lets players fire all 6 darts at once, and the 6-dart clip detaches easily, so you can reload quickly. The blaster is easy to operate, with a long, trigger-heavy design. The targeting scope is detachable, and the gun has a red camo wrap that looks similar to Fortnite's. The blaster's length makes it easy to use from long distances, and the stock provides a firm grip. The gun's accuracy is good, though it could use some improvements in range. The blaster is a lot more fun to use than the Fortnite Crossbow, and it shoots darts a lot faster, too. Its biggest drawback is its price, which is among the most expensive Nerf blasters we've ever tested.
