The Desolator is a Nerf blaster that was released in fall of 2016 under the Impact Zone sub-series. It requires four "AA" batteries to be operated.

It comes packaged with a ten dart clip, ten Impact Zone Darts, and instructions.

It is a Target exclusive in the United States and a Walmart exclusive in Canada.


The Desolator is a clip system flywheel-powered blaster with semi-automatic function. It has two tactical rails above the blaster and two sling points: one in the handle and another one under the muzzle. It also has clear plastic parts, allowing the user to see some of the blaster's internal workings.

Despite being compatible with other clip system clips (such as a Buzz Bee eight dart clip), the acceleration trigger won't work when the clip is normally inserted. This is due to how loaded ammunition lines up with the blaster's acceleration trigger safety lock; pushing the clip firmly in place will help avoid this issue.

Official description


The Desolator was announced at the 2016 Toy Fair, along with the Longarm.

In 2019, the Desolator was re-released along with several other Doomlands 2169 blasters.


  • The Desolator is the only motorized Doomlands 2169 blaster.
  • The Desolator is sometimes compared to the N-Strike Elite Stryfe. Generally, the Desolator is more ergonomic than the Stryfe, despite the smaller trigger handle, and has a smoother trigger pull. However, it is larger, and has no barrel extension or detachable shoulder stock attachment points.
