Not to be confused with the Dart Tag Firestrike.

The Firestrike is a Nerf blaster that was released in 2013 under the N-Strike Elite series. It requires two "AAA" batteries to operate its integrated light.

It comes packaged with three Elite Darts.


The Firestrike is a single-fire direct plunger dart blaster. There are two triggers on the blaster; the top is the firing trigger, while the bottom is a separate trigger to power the integrated red light beam unit, which projects a circular, red crosshair onto surfaces. This light is most effective in dark environments. It features a two-dart dart storage under the blaster's light and has a tactical rail on top of the blaster. On the end of the handle is a small hook-like piece of plastic, which extends down past the battery compartment. This hook can be used to prime another Firestrike, allowing the user to dual-wield Firestrikes.

It advertises a firing range of seventy-five feet (twenty-three meters).

Official description


The Firestrike is a successor to the N-Strike Nite Finder EX-3, and the fourth, and final, iteration of the original Nite Finder.

It was first seen on the packaging of the first four blasters released under the N-Strike Elite series. It was given a soft release in December of 2012, along with the Strongarm and Stryfe in select retailers.

It was later re-released with additional detailing, such as digital camo and a textured grip. It was re-released again with an orange, white, and gray color scheme; this re-release was shown off at the 2014 New York Toy Fair and was later released as the Elite XD variant.

A Micro Shots version of the blaster was released in 2018.
