* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: The Raider's "slam-fire" pump lets you put a lot of darts out there really fast. Your accuracy drops to nil, but who needs that when you can [[MoreDakka fill an area with darts?]] The N-Strike Elite ''Rampage'' takes after the Raider despite having ten less darts and lacking the stock of it's predecessor but features the higher ranges with it's direct plunger.
** The Barrel Break IX-2 fires, as the numerical designation suggests, two shots at once and resembles a SawedOffShotgun. It also comes with a dart-holding accessory, like real shotguns.

plunger. Just note when we refer to NERF shotguns, they can either be blasters that are primed with a dart-holding accessory, like real shotguns.shotgun pump or blasters that actually fire more than one dart in a single prime.



** The Rough Cut 2x4 takes a leaf from the Barrel Break's book, firing two rounds at once and looking like a SawedOffShotgun.
** The Zombie Strike line's Sledgefire uses special shells that hold three darts each and fires them in a spread. While it only comes with three of them, the shells can be reloaded from the shoulder stock pretty easily.



** If you load two MEGA Darts and a Rival Ball into Rival Zeus MXV-2000, it blasts three rounds like a '''literal''' shotgun.
*** Officially, the Rival Atlas not only primes like a shotgun but fires two balls out of the same barrel in a shotgun manner.

Added DiffLines:

* ThemeNaming: Many lines outside of the N-Strike Elite line give particular names to their blasters that is if they aren't MeaningfulName[=s=] or ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.
** The RIVAL line uses ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming such as Zeus, Atlas, Khaos, Artemis, etc. No doubt future blasters will have names like Pegasus, Hermes, Heracles, Hades, Icarus, etc.
** The [=AccuStrike=] line uses [[AnimalThemeNaming birds of prey]] names for their blasters, based on the line's focus of accurate darts.
** Outside of the Praxis and Revonix 360, the Vortex line used names that ended in "-on".
** The primary [=DoomLands=] 2169 line uses heroic, cowboy-esque names such as Lawbringer, Vagabond, Swift Justice while the Impact Zone subline seems to have apocalyptic themed names like Desolator.

Added DiffLines:

* FiringOneHanded: Most of the smaller handgun-like blasters can be fired one handed easily due to their lack of weight and recoil compared to their real counterparts, even the [[HandCannon CycloneShock]], but priming them still requires both hands, in most cases it's best to have your offhand on the priming slide instead of using a Weaver-hold. Blasters like the [=HammerShot=] and Lawbringer can be fired one-handed with their single-action hammer prime or even the Zombie Strike Slingfire, [[MeaningfulName befitting it's name]], can use a slinging action to prime and fire the blaster one-handed.

** It's curious to note that, while marketed at children, the guns themselves are clearly designed with adult hand sizes in mind. Even more so, some of the blasters are just ''way'' too big for a child to hold, many of the MEGA blasters such as the Centurion, Thunderbow and ''Mastodon'' stand out. The Rival line seems marketed more toward teenagers and young adults with a competitive theme more akin to Airsoft and paintball.

* UniversalAmmunition: Blasters within the same generation tend to use the exact same darts/discs/balls. Anything that uses a Clip System magazine can happily take N-Strike, Elite, Zombie Strike, Rebelle, and Doomlands clip system mags.

* HandCannon: Nerf pistols tend to be huge compared to their real counterparts, due to the size of the darts. In terms of relative scale, the Nerf Elite MEGA series Magnus pistol is a major example, being an exceptionally sizeable pistol chambered ''for ammunition that an anti-materiel rifle'' like the Centurion was made to use. Yikes. The later [=CycloneShock=] is ''even bigger''. The two MEGA "pistols" compensate for younger users by allowing you to grip onto the blaster under the barrel with your offhand.

There's also the Bigshock, a powerhouse with the look of a Jolt but with the function of a standard MEGA blaster.



** The Elite MEGA Magnus uses the larger MEGA darts, and can match the Centurion rifle in ranges from 70 to 100 feet.

** The Elite SplitStrike splits to become two individual pistols, with a hook on the end of each blaster's grip that fits into the priming ring of the other. This also allows faster reloading, since they can be recombined to free up one hand while inserting darts .

** For the logical conclusion, with the given belts, you can carry two ''[[UpToEleven MEGA]]'' ''[[{{BFG}} Mastodons]]'' at once, and they're fully automatic.


Added DiffLines:

** And then there's the Elite Firestrike, which is specifically designed for dual wielding and twirling.

** The N-Strike Elite Mega Mastodon, a ''revolving automatic'' blaster released in August 2016, surpasses the Vulcan with its ''[[UpToEleven 24 MEGA dart drum]]'', it's also the first automatic MEGA blaster ever released. Calling it a BFG would be an ''{{Understatement}}''.

* SniperPistol: Inverted; the sniper rifle-esque Longshot and Longstrike shoot no farther than any other gun. Played straight with the Nite Finder, a single-shot pistol with among the best ranges for any N-Strike blaster.
