For anyone not in the know, it’s Nerf of Nothin! With an impressive range of Nerf blasters, which fire soft foam darts, Nerf has a blaster solution to suit each fan. Mastering the ‘art of Nerf’ takes time and patience and a lot of practice to become a true Nerf Blaster Master. Nerf fans can now strike with even greater confidence and skill with the introduction of the Nerf AccuStrike Series, featuring darts redesigned for greater accuracy.
The new AccuStrike darts have corkscrew rifling in the rubber tip, which adds spin to the darts, allowing them to ‘fly’ in a straighter pattern, hitting the mark with a greater degree of precision.
The Nerf N-Strike Elite RaptorStrike blaster is part of the AccuStrike Series. The bolt-action blaster comes complete with two six-dart clips and 18 darts to keep battlers stocked for their Nerf battles. Use the bipod to stabilise shots; the legs extend to adjust the height. The blaster also has a pop-up sight for targeting.
Kids can also customise their blaster for any mission with the fully motorised Nerf Regulator blaster. Featuring SwitchFire Technology, fans can choose any one of three firing modes. Flip the switch to choose between single-fire, burst-fire or continuous-fire. Load Nerf darts into both 12-dart clips, and power up the motor by holding down the acceleration button, to watch the darts fly. The indicator light blinks to let battlers know the clip is empty. Customise the blaster with the swivel handle to stabilise shots and the two barrel-scopes that can be used as barrel extensions or targeting scopes. Expand the customising options with Nerf Modulus accessories and upgrade kits to create over 1 000 different combinations (each sold separately).
