The Defender T3 is a Nerf blaster that was released in 1996 under the Cyber Stryke Gear series.

It comes packaged with two 9" arrows and three Mega Darts.


The Defender T3 is essentially two blasters in one, with the top being an arrow launcher and the bottom being a single-fire blaster that fires Mega Darts. The Defender T3 can be used either as combined or separated into two blasters.

Arrow launcher

There is an integrated scope on top of the arrow launcher, along with an arrow holder and a belt clip. The arrow launcher has no trigger when separated; firing it is done so by pulling back the priming handle and releasing. When pulling back the handle in its detached form, the handle can be pulled back further than the catch, which gives it considerably better ranges.

When detached, the scope of the blaster acts as a handle. The internals of the blaster are very similar to those seen in the Big Bad Bow. [5]

Dart blaster

The bottom blaster is a basic single-fire blaster similar to the Lock 'n Load in terms of performance and function. It has a removable dart holder that can store two extra Mega Darts.


  • It was the first blaster to feature the use of 9" arrows.
  • The blaster fires the arrow before firing the Mega Dart when combined.
