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).
