Best Nerf sniper rifles

My personal favorite type of Nerf blaster has always been the sniper rifle. Those stretched-out blasters with fancy looks and funky features that make you feel like a real, professional sniper.

Nerf blasters aren’t exactly well-known for their amazing performance and accuracy, but that’s not what a true Nerf fan would expect. But with Nerf sniper rifles, there are definitely expectation levels in regards to accuracy and firing range.

5 Awesome Nerf Super Soakers

What’s more entertaining than battling out a huge water war with your friends on a hot summers day? That’s right, water guns are fun, for children as well as for grownups.

You could choose to go to combat with an old-school water pistol, but you won’t win. What you should do instead is upgrading to a powerful Nerf Super Soaker blaster.

Some of these Nerf Super Soakers are indeed quite sophisticated weapons, designed to unapologetically out-drench your opponents.

Smartphone laser tag augmented reality

With the rise of smartphones in the last 10-15 years, it was only a matter of time before the home laser tag industry would come up with a smartphone laser tag concept.

Nerf MicroShots blasters

Do you remember the Nerf Jolt EX-1 from a few years ago? That super tiny pistol-style Nerf blaster that shoots one dart at a time?

If you liked the Jolt as much as I did (yes, I do actually believe the Jolt was a cool thing), you’ll most likely appreciate the MicroShots series that Nerf released in 2018.

The Nerf MicroShots blasters are essentially a bunch of Jolt remakes, designed as miniature versions of existing Nerf blasters. They work the same as the Jolt does. Put one dart in, prime the handle, pull the trigger, and the pistol fires. Too easy.
