Nerf guns have been some of the most popular toys in the last three decades. That’s hardly any surprise though because Nerf has continuously come out with exciting new models and series every single year.
And not just that, Nerf has also always tried to innovate their blasters as much as possible, meeting the ever-increasing expectations from today’s hungry Nerf fans.
From compact pistol style to fully automatic Nerf blasters, I have listed the best Nerf guns in different categories and series.
Best Nerf Pistols
Nerf pistols may not be the most popular type of blasters, but over the years, Nerf has produced quite a few iconic pistol-style guns.
A Nerf pistol is perfect for those buying their first-ever Nerf blaster, or otherwise for those looking to purchase a decent and reliable secondary blaster to use in Nerf wars.

Best Nerf Sniper Rifles
I have a bit of a soft spot for Nerf sniper rifles. Nerf blasters in general aren’t exactly famous for their amazing accuracy, but with Nerf sniper rifles, there are expectations in regards to accuracy, velocity, and firing range.

Best Fully Automatic Nerf Guns
Also referred to as machine or motorized Nerf guns, fully automatic Nerf guns are battery-powered blasters that can fire ammo continuously by simply holding down the trigger. They are super fun to play with and give you that extra edge during Nerf wars.

Best Nerf Shotguns
The Nerf shotgun is a rather unique type of blaster that we don’t see very often, but Nerf has produced quite a few awesome ones over the years. A Nerf shotgun can shoot multiple darts or rounds at once, which is what makes them stand out.

Best Nerf Rival Blasters
As you may know, I am a huge fan of the Nerf Rival series of blasters, high-performing machines designed for competitive team vs team play. They use custom-built Rival rounds as ammo to further improve their power and performance.

Best Nerf Mega Blasters
Nerf N-Strike Mega is a series of blasters that was first introduced in 2013 and has since delivered various blasters in different categories.
While not the most popular and certainly not the best series in the history of Nerf, there are a few cool Mega blasters that are worth purchasing.

Best Nerf N-Strike Modulus Guns
The Nerf Modulus series was introduced in 2015 with a strong focus on the customization of blasters. Modulus blasters come with all sorts of accessories and attachments that can be interchanged with all other blasters within the Modulus range.
