The Detonator is a Nerf blaster that was released in 1993 under the Rip Rockets series.

It comes packaged with two Micro Darts.


The Detonator is a single-fire blaster designed to be placed on a flat surface to be fired. This blaster is fired by slamming a hand onto its plastic plunger. In a way, it can be considered a miniature version of the 1992 Missile Launcher, a blaster which also required a large amount of sudden force to be used to launch the ammunition. There is an iron sight on the underside of the barrel.


This was the first blaster to be released in the color green. Previous blasters featuring this color such as the Air Launcher only utilized green in minor parts of the blaster's shell. Alongside the Ramrod and Blast Hammer, this was the first blaster to fire Micro Darts.

This blaster was given a spiritual successor in the form of the 1995 Backlash.
