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 HAMP-action single-fire blaster. It is designed to be placed on a flat surface to be fired, and has a hinged barrel. This barrel can be rotated into a number of positions, locking into place as to not move when fired. Its vertical-most position aligns with the shell of the blaster, and clicks into place against it. A single dart can be stored in a space between the plunger and where the barrel can snap into. There is an iron sight on the underside of the barrel, for use with aiming.


Alongside the Ramrod and Blast Hammer, the Detonator was the first blaster to fire Micro Darts.


  • 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.
  • 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.
