The Crossfire, also known as the Strikefire, is a Nerf blaster that was released in 2005 under the Dart Tag series.

It comes packaged with a fist-sized shield, a pair of Vision Gear, six Tagger Micro Darts, and instructions.

In some countries like India and New Zealand, it is found in single packs with Vision Gear and a Scoring Vest. However in the United States and most other countries, it is only found in a blaster set.

Details

The Crossfire features a small inverse tactical rail on top of it, allowing it to be attached to other blasters with a tactical rail. Like the Hyperfire and Magstrike, the trigger is a two-fingered trigger with small holes indented on it. Much like the Nite Finder EX-3 and the Element EX-6, users can store darts under the blaster.

History

The Crossfire was first seen in December 2005 on KB Toys' website.[1] A listing from December 2005 also appeared on Hasbro's website detailing the blaster and its features.

It was re-released in 2008 in the Strikefire 2-Player Duel System, where it received its alternate name. A Star Wars variant appeared at the 2008 Toy Fair, however it has not been seen since. It is unknown if it was cancelled.

Color schemes

The Crossfire has been released with the following color schemes:

  • Dart Tag (blue, silver, black, green, and orange)
  • Dart Tag (green, silver, black, and orange)
  • Dart Tag (orange, silver, black, and green)
  • Dart Tag (red, silver, black, green, and orange)

Modification

The Crossfire is a fairly easy blaster to modify. Barrel replacements are highly common and relatively easy to do.[2][3][4] Coupler modifications are also common, and can result in an easy boost in range.[5]

Another easy and common mod is minimization, most notably the ammunition storage in the front.[6] More complicated mods can be completed, such as blaster integrations.[7]

Value packs

The Crossfire was sold briefly in 2016 at Walmart with a free Firestrike in matching colors to the blaster sold in the package, either red or blue.[8]

The Strikefire 2-Player Duel System was also offered in an NDTL value pack with Nerf Dart Tag League vests and bags.

Trivia

  • The dual pack is known as Strikefire, where as the single pack is known as the Crossfire.
  • The Crossfire works very well as an attachment to larger blasters, since it allows an extra dart to be fired if one is not deemed enough.
