** Many MEGA blasters are louder owing to their larger plunger size and length, particularly the Centurion due to the way it loads darts. It makes a notable "ka-ping!" noise which is the sound of the blaster firing and then the chambering slide springing back.

** 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.

* 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''.

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.



** Both of the current [=DoomLands=] 2169 blasters use revolver cylinders.

** Both of the current first [=DoomLands=] 2169 blasters use revolver cylinders.



*** The Modulus Recon MK. II succeeds both of these.



* SecondaryFire: Many blasters tend to have two ways to fire certain blasters and many modders integrate blasters to act as a secondary fire.
** The Hornet AS-6 can fire it's six darts sequentially or a button on the side fires all of them at the same time, same for the Rapid Fire AS-20 that can fire it's darts automatically in sequence or [[MacrossMissileMassacre all 20 via a similar button]].
** The Barrel Break IX-2 or Rough Cut 2x4 can fire two darts at the same time or pull the trigger halfway to fire one at a time.
** The EmergencyWeapon of the Longshot CS-6 can be used as a separate shot between the shots of the main blaster or to act as a double shot. The Modulus Grip Blaster has a similar function but rail mounted.
** The Unity Power System takes this to the extreme by attaching the Scout IX-3 and Hornet AS-6 to the Titan AS-V.1, allowing you to fire the Hornet's six darts, the Scout's one dart and the Titan's rocket in any preferred order
** The Demolisher 2-in-1 advertises it right there in its name. Its secondary fire is a large foam missile, like an underslung grenade launcher.
** The Modulus Stock Blaster is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a blaster built into a detachable stock]], allowing any compatible gun to become this.
** "Secondary fire" of the Zombie Strike [=FlipFury=] or [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom Doominator]] switches between cylinders as it's a secondary trigger.
** Slam-fire blasters technically count as it's a rapid-firing mode compared to the slower manual action.
** The Vulcan EBF-25 can either be primed and fired manually or fire fully automatic.
** The Elite Dual-Strike has a selector allowing you to fire the Elite darts or MEGA darts that can be loaded into the blaster.
** The Modulus Tri-Strike has it's blaster, the MEGA dart launcher on the front barrel and the stock operated missile launcher, said missile launcher on the tactical rail can be attached to the stock itself to function as it's own blaster.

*** "Secondary fire" of the Zombie Strike [=FlipFury=] or [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom Doominator]] switches between cylinders. This makes it handy having one cylinder ready while you reload the other(s).

* BayonetYa: Attaching N-Force weapons to blasters wasn't uncommon for modders. Eventually, the Modulus Close Combat Upgrade Kit includes a rail blade that can be attached to your blaster or used on it's own, similar to a hilted bayonet. The Perpetual Play Group's Chainsaw in the Zombie Strike Z.E.D. Squad line takes it to ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'' levels as it can be attached to a blaster via a similar rail.



** The Modulus system blaster is designed to have lots of swappable parts, most notably the Strike & Defend Upgrade Kit's stock that has a Jolt-like one-shot blaster built in.

*** Officially, the Rival Atlas not only primes like a shotgun but fires two balls out of the same barrel in a shotgun manner.



* SightedGunsAreLowTech: Some blasters lack a proper male and female sight, some making up for it by having tactical rails to attach your own. The Alien Menace line in particular has no sights nor attachment points for them.

Added DiffLines:

* ChargedAttack: Many air powered blasters depend on how full the air bladder or reservoir is when firing such as the Titan AS-V.1 with how far a missile can go or the Rapid Fire AS-20 that determines how fast you fire the darts loaded into it, the Titan in particular having a convenient meter that tells how charged it is. A more odd example could be blasters that depend on how hard you slam the mechanism to fire such as the launchers found on the Demolisher, Thunderblast and either the Tri-Strike's stock operated missile launcher or front operated MEGA dart blaster.

Recently, Nerf and Super Soaker have finally realized they're under the same brand and joined forces, producing a new range of Super Soakers compatible with Nerf tactical rail accessories. Fun will be had! A toyline of Disc Launchers, the ''Vortex'' line of blasters, have also been released. They're notable for having nearly twice the range of normal darts, though they go slower and can easily curve if the blaster is tilted slightly.
