— The AccuStrike Dart's tagline, as seen on its packaging

An AccuStrike Dart is a type of Nerf dart that was released in 2017 under the AccuStrike Series.


AccuStrike Darts are clip system-compatible darts that are similar to Elite Darts, with the main difference being their unique spiraled dart head. They are backwards compatible with all blasters that use Elite Darts.[1]

They feature the use of a flat head with molded spiral indentations which are designed to help the darts fly in a more consistent straight direction. According to Hasbro, the darts are supposed to spin when fired[2], but this has never actually been demonstrated to be true. They have the same weight, distribution, and center of gravity as standard Elite Darts. Hasbro designed AccuStrikes with a flat head to maximize consistency and improve accuracy.[citation needed]

Because the dart head is the same diameter as the dart body, AccuStrike Darts perform poorly in blasters with compression barrels.

Official description[]


Hasbro engineers purportedly spent over two years designing the AccuStrike Dart.[1] However, similar third-party flat tipped dart designs had existed for some time before the release of AccuStrikes, all of which exhibited similar performance characteristics.

The flat tip design was used to create AccuStike variants of the Mega Dart and ULTRA Dart in 2018 and 2021, respectively. However these darts lack the unique spiral indentations in the head and are essentially cylindrical in shape.

  • Some retailers refer to them as Precision Darts.
    • Although they are referred to as a more accurate type of dart, accuracy and precision are not the same. Precision is how tight the grouping of projectiles are, while accuracy is how on-center the projectiles are. Because darts naturally fall in flight, AccuStrike Darts have more precision than accuracy at longer distances, but both accuracy and precision at shorter distances.
  • This dart and the Suction Dart are the only two Elite Dart variants that have a different dart head.
  • Unlike many other modern Nerf darts, the AccuStrike Dart has no "Deco" version.
