Nerf Accustrike is coming!

The beginning of the Nerf Accustrike line has now been announced! The Nerf R&D Team has apparently been hard at work developing new darts and blasters to go along with them! These specialized Darts are the familiar orange foam, tipped with a grey rubberized plastic that’s quite similar in overall shape to the Streamline tip but with notches that appear as though they may cause the dart to spin. We assume this is what causes the darts to have the increased accuracy claimed in the descriptions of the blasters.

Nerf Accustrike Dart

It’s interesting to note that there are no range claims along with these blasters (though they are called N-Strike Elite blasters). This makes us wonder if there is a trade off in distance with the better accuracy, and how well these darts will work in magazine-fed blasters. We believe they will work of course, but will the power of other Elite blasters reduce the accuracy of the dart? We’ll have to wait a bit to see whether that’s true, because the Accustrike blasters are set to hit shelves in Spring of 2017.

However, not all of us will have to wait that long. Namely those of us that have been keeping up with the Nerf Perks program. Starting in December, the Nerf N-Strike Elite Accustrike Alphahawk will be available on NerfPerks.com as one of the possible rewards to use your accumulated points. No word on how many points you’ll need, but using the other products as a guide, we expect it to be around 3800 points (based on the retail price of the Alphahawk and the Brainsaw, both $29.99). To get you a little closer to that goal, the people at Nerf have given us a special promo code for our readers/viewers! Use the promo code nerddrop2016 before November 5th, 2016 and you’ll receive 100 bonus points!

Nerf Splitstrike officially announced!

Today we received official word that the Nerf Splitstrike will be coming out Fall of this year (August 1st is set as the precise date) as a Walmart exclusive for $19.99.

This is a little spendy in my mind, but one also has to keep in mind that this is basically two firestrikes that have two barrels with smart ARs. Not to mention it’s an exclusive. That’s bound to make the price a bit higher, even at Walmart.

Stick close to Nerddrop.com for more information on this and other blasters as we get it! Also follow us on Twitter at @nerddrop! Official pictures coming soon! 

 

Two new Elite Blasters Discovered

This information comes via the information at Hasbro’s Brand Toolkits page (/u/Chipayv on reddit posted the link).

Two new Elite blasters: one is an evolution of the Jolt with two holes for ammo storage, and the other is a standalone Elite Missile launcher. I’m cautiously excited about the Thunderblast. I think it could be an awesome blaster, but considering that it’s the same launch mechanism as the Elite Demolisher, that makes it a bit suspect in terms of power and capability.

NERF N-STRIKE Snapfire Blaster

Nerf Zombie Strike Doominator

Looks like another blaster has dropped on to the Nerf scene, this time the Nerdist has got the scoop on this one. The Doominator is a Zombie Strike blaster slated to come out this fall for $39.99. According to the article, it’ll be available at most major retailers as well as HasbroToyShop.com.

This beast of a blaster looks like another bastard-child blaster, this time the result of some sordid relationship between the FlipFury and SlingFire. If you’ve taken a look at the article, they say that:

The action lever also provides a quick reset for the next dart, a la the excellently designed SlingFire rifle.

However, we don’t believe that this is the case (they don’t provide the marketing blurb in the article, so we’re just going on appearances and logic). If you’ve gotten your hands on the FlipFury, you’ll know that the secondary trigger simply activates the mechanism to rotate the cylinders around. We believe that the two-fingered lever here performs the same function. We think that the fore-grip is actually what primes the blaster and advances the individual cylinder to the next dart. We’ve emailed our contact at Nerf in hopes of more information on this blaster, and will update this article accordingly.
