** [[http://www.toysrus.com/graphics/product_images/pTRU1-24833076enh-z6.jpg Terrascout]]: A successor to the rather underwhelming Terradrone in the Battle Creatures line, the Terrascout instead moves via tank treads and the blaster portion, while still being a FixedForwardFacingWeapon, uses clip-system magazines along with having an attachment point for barrels and two tactical rails. The remote not only has controls for movement and turning but the left trigger is like a rocker switch, allowing you to aim up or down rather than a continuous up-and-down system on the Terradrone. The Terrascout even has a ''live camera'' feeding into the remote, not only allowing you to aim the drone but also to record video. The batteries in the remote are replaced while the batteries in the drone itself are recharged with the included adapter and cable. All these features give the blaster a rather high asking price of ''$170'' but with all these features, such a price is justified in this case.

* Notable Accustrike Blasters

* Notable Accustrike BlastersBlasters:



* Modulus Regulator: A fully automatic Modulus blaster with true select-fire (semi-automatic, three-dart burst and fully automatic) and also has a blinking light telling you if the current clip is empty. The front barrel attachment acts as a carry handle of sorts and has it's own barrel attachment point (along with the fact that it has a hole that aligns with either Barrel-Scope when mounted on the top rail), the handle also locks at different 90-degree orientations so it can function as a grip when firing. The blaster includes both a Long Barrel-Scope and Short Barrel-Scope which can function either as a barrel attachment or as a scope (much like the Sawtooth blaster whose scope could be attached to the barrel of the blaster instead) and, like the carry handle, have barrel attachment points at the front, the stock looks to be a storage stock similar to the Modulus ESC-10 but it looks more sturdy and would wobble less.

** Voidcaster: A small pistol-sized blaster that brings back the concept of the Snapfire 8, the trigger is designed to be squeezed with four fingers to both prime and fire the four darts in the smart-AR barrels and also holds eight more darts in the holders. The nature of the double-action system means reduced muzzle velocity along with the slight shuddering from the action of squeezing the trigger.

* Modulus Zoom Scope: A rather expensive, powered attachment that provides up to x5 digital zoom and infrared night vision. The digital part is important to note as it's simply stretching the image like on a smart phone camera rather than an optical zoom and, combined with the already low resolution, x5 zoom looks rather distorted and blurry, no EnhanceButton to help you there.

A recent line introduced that focuses on launching light, foam cars across surfaces and onto ramps or into/through various obstacles to perform stunts or otherwise cause mayhem like, say, bowling over an arrangement of plastic barrels.

A recent line introduced that focuses on launching light, foam cars across surfaces and onto ramps or into/through various obstacles to perform stunts or otherwise cause mayhem like, say, bowling over an arrangement of plastic barrels. They're not designed to fire like a conventional blaster and they have a small button on the bottom that locks out the launcher until it's set down on a flat surface.
* Throttleshot Blitz: An introductory launcher of sorts as a single-shot, spring powered launcher that includes a single car and a pair of tire wall obstacles.
* Longshot Smash Set: A slightly larger launcher that can be primed and then loaded in the front but loading before that primes the blaster anyways. Comes with two cars, a ramp, two orange channelizer barrels and two regular
barrels.
* Flashfury Chaos: A launcher with a gravity-fed hopper for the cars, it's bolt-primed like that of a Tri-Strike or other similar blasters. It includes three cars, two barrels, two tire wall pieces, two crates and four objects that resemble electrical transformers which are designed to attach together via blue plastic pieces, making it resemble walls of electricity. You then insert the blue discs into them so when a car runs underneath the walls, they launch the discs into the air.
* Duelfury Demolition: A set of two launchers that like the (Nitro) Longshot. The set includes four cars, four gray barrels, four orange channelizer barrels, two ramps and two special ramps that go through rings of (fake) fire.

A new line with a [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic]] [[ColonyDrop asteroid impact]] theme to it. The line features yellow, black tipped streamlines similar to the Elite Rayven Stinger, clear parts that allow you to see internal mechanisms and has an otherwise scrapped-together look. A later Impact Zone line has the motif of the titular area were the asteroid hit stuck in a nuclear winter with mutant ice monsters, it introduces higher tech looking white blasters with orange parts similarly exposing internal mechanisms while the darts are white with black tips.

[[http://www.blasterlabs.com/2015/02/2015-nerf-rival-details-and-new-photo-released/ A 2015 lineup]] of all-new blasters that return to foam ball-type ammunition, RIVAL blasters are intended to have more power and accuracy than the typical Micro Dart blaster, one of the main reasons being that the ammo has golf ball dimples on them that decreases air resistance, allowing them to fly straighter, farther and harder. The toyline will include protective face masks, and have magazines sold independently of the blasters.

** Phantom Corps Hera: A blaster that combines the flywheel firing of the Zeus MXV-1200 with the compact, grip-loaded nature of the Apollo XV-700, making it similar in style to a MAC-10 or an Uzi.

* NERF Creator/DudePerfect Bow: A proper bow not related to the Rebelle line. Like other bows, it uses an elastic band rather than bending the arms or compound pulleys for propulsion and the special arrows catch on a flap when you nock and pull back, making it easier to shoot. This is intended for outdoor use due to the size, range and velocity that the arrows are fired at.

*** Custom Engines: For better heat efficiency, reduced noise, or improved power, aftermarket engines can be fitted. Some modders love to use the custom engines from Tamiya car kits.

*** Custom Engines: For better heat efficiency, reduced noise, or improved power, aftermarket engines can be fitted. Some modders love to use the custom engines from Tamiya car kits. Apart from designer motors from specialized manufacturers, some modders simply rely on cheaper and more readily available custom Tamiya model car motors. It is possible to see extremely experienced modders open up their motors and do wholesome internals upgrading, ranging from swapping out the permanent magnets for even stronger ones, to redoing the coils of wiring that form the electromagnets or even replacing the carbon brushes and contacts.
*** Custom Flywheel Motor Cages: several modders designed their own modular cage assemblies to hold the motors and flywheels in position for firing. Often this custom cage is designed to help manage heat buildup and/or be more durable than the stock housing that seats the motors and flywheels.



** Aftermarket Clip System magazines: These exist too. Most commonly seen are rebuilt mags which have been extended, although entirely-original aluminium/brass metal Clip System mags have been seen in some specialist suppliers.

*** Ammo Backpack: A ''unique'' ultra-high capacity ammo system for RIVAL series blasters. One of the first pack models uses a coiled hosepipe full of RIVAL foam balls with an air pump pushing the ammo up the tube and into the chamber. It certainly works and permits a high fire rate, but the noise generated by the air pump completely prevents you from being stealthy.

Another subseries is coming, dubbed the Accustrike series that introduces new darts with a special tip, the aerodynamics of which causing them to spin as they fly through the air, making them more accurate but still allowing them to compress and reduce harm. The overall design scheme for these resemble sci-fi blasters and follows AnimalThemeNaming for it's blasters.

** Switch Shot EX-1: A special variant pistol blaster which was provided with the Nerf N-Strike official video game on the {{Wii}}. A fully-functional pistol blaster in the same vein as the Scout and Nitefinder, you can flip the sighted muzzle guard down and remove the barrel and plunger block assembly to make room for a Wiimote, allowing you to use the blaster's receiver and grip as a Wiimote gun-controller shell. It comes with a red lensed sight that lets you see hidden messages and [[AttackItsWeakPoint enemy weak spots]] in the game.
