The Guardian Crossbow is a Nerf blaster that was released in fall of 2013 under the Rebelle series.

It comes packaged with six Collectible Darts.


The Guardian Crossbow is shaped much like an actual crossbow, albeit the bow is purely cosmetic (the fake bowstring passes through a ring attached to the plunger, but it generates no force: the plunger moves the string and not the other way round). It features a tactical rail on top, an integrated shoulder stock, as well as two strap points located in the bottom of the handle and the top point of the stock. It features the use of slam fire.

It advertises ranges of up to seventy-five feet (twenty-three meters).

Blaster sets

The Guardian Crossbow Target Set includes a Guardian Crossbow, ten Collectible Darts, a mesh bag, and three targets.


  • The version of the Guardian Crossbow shown off at the 2013 Toy Fair was unable to slam fire. This may be due to the fact that a prototype of the blaster was shown off and was not a finished product.
  • Though not intended to be fired that way, the blaster can be bow-fired by operating the bowstring ring as a hammer. Someone with large enough and strong enough hands could conceivably operate one in each hand just with the thumbs, making it one of the few non-battery-operated blasters able to be dual-wielded.
  • Despite the persistent myth, this blaster isn't a reshell of the N-Strike Elite Strongarm, and instead has a completely different rotation system.
