It comes packaged with four Elite Darts.
The DoubleDown is a double-barreled blaster that uses intelligent air restrictors, like the Triad EX-3 and the Rough Cut 2x4, that allow the blaster to be fired from either barrel. The dart is fired from the right barrel first and then followed by the left barrel. It features dart storage for up to four darts under the muzzle and one strap point located in the handle.
It, like the majority of the 2015 N-Strike blasters, uses a modified Jolt platform. The priming mechanism used on the DoubleDown is reminiscent of blasters such as the Nite Finder EX-3, Element EX-6, and the Firestrike.
The DoubleDown has an unusually long plunger tube and spring for a Jolt-based blaster. The Nerf logo and the title of the blaster can be seen in black font on the side. A set of iron sights is also on the top of the blaster, which can be used as a guide while aiming shots.

The DoubleDown was first spotted by a user on Facebook who sent the images to blogger Awesomely Nerf on January 6, 2015. Originally it was believed by many that the blaster would fire both barrels at once akin to a single-barrel Rough Cut 2x4. It was the third 2015 N-Strike blaster revealed, after the SharpFire and SlingStrike.
- Although the blaster has the potential to hold up to six darts, it only comes with four. The reason for this is unknown. On packaging for the blaster it shows the DoubleDown's front two dart storage spaces as empty.
- Alongside other 2015 N-Strike blasters, firing range is not advertised on the box.
