The Accelerator is a semi-automatic, flywheel-powered, hopper-fed blaster. The blaster features an acceleration trigger below the firing trigger. The hopper feeds from a well at the top. The blaster's sides have removable green panels, which can be swapped out for either red or blue panels instead. These panels are used to indicate the user's team, while the green one is just a default panel. There is a jam door on the right of the blaster. The blaster has a diagonal accessory rail on each side; although the rail was meant for the included iron sights, they are also somewhat compatible with Nerf tactical rail attachments.
The blaster's battery tray is identical to blasters such as the RIVAL Khaos MXVI-4000 and the Nemesis MXVII-10K; their battery trays are completely cross compatible. As such, the Accelerator is also able to use the Rechargeable Battery Pack.
The blaster is also compatible with Nerf RIVAL magazines in place of the hopper. Users have noted some feeding issues with the magazines, however. Unlike the hopper, which is gravity-assisted, RIVAL magazines use a spring-assisted follower. Thus, using RIVAL magazines in this blaster will permit firing it upside down.

Adventure Force™ introduces the new Tactical Strike Blasters created as an exclusive new product launch for Walmart Canada Fall 2017. The Tactical Strike Blasters fire Power Strike™ foam rounds up to 100 FPS (feet per second), just like the competition and come with interchangeable blue and green squad markers. The Tactical Strike’s Accelerator Quick-Load Hopper holds 25 foam rounds. Just like all Dart Zone® Super Darts and Blasters, Adventure Force™ is fully compatible with the leading brand’s rounds and magazines
The Accelerator was re-released in 2018 as the Dart Zone BallistixOps Velocity; it features various upgrades and changes, including a round agitator that helps feed them from the hopper. In the same year, a "Generation 2" model of the Accelerator was released. This version is identical to the BallistixOps Velocity.
- Detailing above the Accelerator's name reads "Powered by PT-DZ". "PT" most likely stands for Prime Time, and "DZ" most likely stands for Dart Zone.
