The CrossBolt is a clip system Nerf blaster that was released in fall of 2015 under the N-Strike Elite series.

It comes packaged with a twelve dart clip, twelve Elite Darts, and instructions.[1]


The CrossBolt is a clip system string-powered crossbow-like blaster. Unlike other "crossbow" blasters like the Zombie Strike Crossfire Bow, the CrossBolt does not feature the use of a plunger system. It features one tactical rail under the muzzle of the blaster, two jam doors and two strap points: one under the iron sight and in the back of the blaster.

It is advertised to have a firing range of up to ninety feet (twenty-seven meters).[1]

Official description

Reloading and firing

To reload the CrossBolt, load up to twelve darts into the included clip. Load the clip into the back of the blaster. To prime it, pull back the gray slide on the top of the blaster; the crossbow string will move back to indicate that the blaster has been primed.

Pull the firing trigger to fire a dart.

The CrossBolt will not accept Streamline Darts.


  • The Crossbolt has a bullpup design, much like the Rayven CS-18, RayvenFire, and the Firefly REV-8.
  • It is one of the few clip system blasters of the N-Strike or N-Strike Elite series to be incompatible with both barrel extensions and detachable shoulder stocks.
  • The CrossBolt is the only Nerf blaster to have two jam doors.
  • It fires even when the jam door is open.
  • Unlike most non-flywheel clip system blasters, the CrossBolt's clip can be easily removed from the blaster without needing to prime back the slide. If a round is already chambered, this allows the CrossBolt to have one more dart loaded than its clip's capacity.
