The Alien Archer is a Nerf Koosh ball blaster that was released in 2012 under the Koosh Galaxy series.

It comes packaged with three red Koosh Galaxy Balls and instructions.


It is a bow-like ball blaster that is similar to that of the Nerf 1990 Original Nerf Bow 'n' Arrow. It features a two-ball storage in the upper bow arm, and a single ball storage in the bottom bow arm. Its handle is also integrated into the bottom bow arm.


Alongside the Star Scout, Space Agent, and Solar Recon, it was released in the first line of the Koosh Galaxy blasters. It was first revealed at the 2012 New York Toy Fair.[1]

Reloading and firing

To reload the Alien Archer, simply insert one ball into the front barrel of the blaster.

Pull back the priming handle until it cannot be extended and then release to fire the ball.

Similar to the Nerf Mega ThunderBow, the Alien Archer does not require the priming handle to be released like a standard pull and release. The handle can be slowly moved forward and the plunger will be released at about the same strength as if the user had released it normally.
