Okay, let’s be fair, Nerf guns have never been famous for their incredible accuracy. And that’s kind of okay, because we buy and play with Nerf blasters for different reasons.
After all, when shooting with foam darts, we simply cannot have super high expectations when it comes to accuracy. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be practicing our shooting skills.
I have handpicked 5 of the best Nerf shooting targets that are not only fun to play with, but will also help you become a better Nerf shooter.
Best Nerf Shooting Targets:
5 Great Nerf Shooting Targets
Nerf blasters have evolved in recent years, such that aiming for targets is becoming much more of a thing.
For example, with the development of AccuStrike darts and the Nerf Rival series, it’s obvious that Nerf is heading into a certain direction where shooting with Nerf guns isn’t just about, you know, randomly shooting and hope for the best.
Performance is now more important than it has ever been. And to help you improve your skills, there are some great Nerf shooting targets available on the market.
Here is my top 5!
1. Nerf Elite Digital Target Toy
Topping this list is a cool and smart digital shooting target toy has with three built-in game play modes. Each of these modes – Point Counter, Speed Breaker and Accuracy Blast – allows you to practice in different ways.
What’s great is that with the digital scoreboard you can practice your Nerf shooting skills by yourself in solo mode, or you can also play against a friend and turn this game into a battle.
The target comes with a stand, so that you can place it on a table, and you can also attach it to a wall. The points you can score range from 10 to 50 points, with 50 essentially being the bullseye in the middle.
Note that this target toy is compatible with most Nerf darts, including the Mega darts, but Rival rounds are not recommended as they are too powerful. It requires 3 AA batteries (not included).
2. Uwantme Electronic Shooting Target
This particular shooting target functions differently than the one above, in that it has four standing targets rather than a classic round target design.
It comes with a handy LCD screen which display the rounds of the game, the scores and a timer countdown. As with most other shooting targets, this model also allows you to play in solo mode, or in multi mode.
The concept is simple, you have 4 targets to aim at. Once all targets have been hit, they will automatically spring up so you can continue, as long as you’re within your time limit.
This sophisticated Nerf shooting target device is compatible with darts in the N-Strike Elite, Mega and Rival series. It requires 4 AA batteries, which are not included.
3. Dreampark Bullet Darts Target
To be perfectly honest with you, I’m a very simple guy. And while I believe the other electronic shooting targets in this list are totally awesome, I also think there is nothing wrong with going back to basics.
And that’s exactly where these foam target cans come in. They are exactly that, simple target cans made with soft foam, that you need to aim at.
They are lightweight, and as such they are specifically suitable for blasters in the Nerf N-Strike Elite series. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t use these targets for heavier blasters, such as the Rival and Mega blasters.
The cans are actually really small, around 6cm (or 2.4 inches) high, and they have numbers printed on them, from 25 to 100. You can use them as individual targets, or you can stack them and try to get as many points possible.
4. Suncoo Electronic Running Shooting Target
This electronic Nerf shooting target is very similar to the one at number 2, with the main difference being that the targets move from left to right. You can also have the targets remain static, it’s simply a matter of choosing a different mode of play.
The scoring system is very basic, meaning you will score one point when you hit all three targets. Once you’ve scored one point, the targets spring up so you can try to score another point. A two digit timer on a little LCD screen keeps track of your scoring.
5. Mascarry Electric Running Scoring Target
Similar to the shooting target toy above, this electronic scoring target also has a running mode which makes the target move from left to right. Static mode can also be chosen, which keeps the target in the center of the rail.
This model however only holds one target. It does come packaged with two different targets, with one target being slightly larger. A fancy LCD screen keeps track of the hits.
Compatible with blasters in the N-Strike Elite, Mega and Rival series, this running shooting target is great fun and excellent value for money.
Practicing your Nerf shooting skills with one of these target toys is great fun. Especially when you’ve invested in a few modern Nerf blasters, these shooting targets can definitely help to improve your Nerf battling skills.
They aren’t expensive at all, and if you don’t always have someone else to play a Nerf battle with, a shooting target is an excellent way to do some secret solo training so you can surprise your mates at your next battle.
To conclude this article, I would also like to mention the Nerf Fortnite SP-R blaster (the blue version of the Nerf Fortnite SP-L blaster) that comes with 3 llama targets (weird, I know). It’s a popular blaster, so it’s worth looking into if you’re looking for a blaster that comes with its own targets.
