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

Included contents[]


The Guardian Crossbow, as its name suggests, is a crossbow-like blaster. Despite its appearance, it operates like a traditional blaster, and uses a plunger system rather than string-powered performance. The bow arms are purely cosmetic, and the bowstring that attaches to the internal priming mechanism has no effect on priming or firing performance. It features an integrated shoulder stock and can be slam fired.

It has one tactical rail on top of the blaster. There are two strap points: one built into the handle and one built into the shoulder stock.

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

Official description[]


The Guardian Crossbow was announced at the 2013 New York Toy Fair; notably, the version of the blaster shown off at this event was unable to slam fire.

Color schemes[]

The Guardian Crossbow has been released in the following color schemes:


The Guardian Crossbow features a direct plunger system. Despite the persistent myth, this blaster isn't a reshell of the N-Strike Elite Strongarm, and instead has a completely different rotation system.

Blaster sets[]

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


  • 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.
  • It uses the same paint decal that is used on the Sweet Revenge.
