The Hammershot is a Nerf blaster that was released on August 4th, 2013 under the Zombie Strike series.

It comes packaged with five Zombie Strike Darts and instructions.


The Hammershot is a hammer-action revolver-style blaster. It has a five-dart cylinder that auto-advances on the prime. It also has a tactical rail on top, and a strap point built into the grip.

The Hammershot has a sensitive trigger, occasionally resulting in accidentally firing darts.[citation needed]

Official description


The Hammershot was known in production stages as the "Hammer-5". Some differences between the final and prototype blaster include the handle's lack of a fabric wrap design, adjustments to the front, as well as various color changes.

The Hammershot was originally a Target exclusive, but has since then has been released in other retail stores, such as Toys "R" Us and Walmart.

It was later again re-released in 2020, with three new color schemes, similar to the 2019 re-releases of the N-Strike Elite Strongarm.

Color schemes

The Hammershot has been released with the following color schemes:

  • Zombie Strike (orange, silver, black, and dark brown)
  • Caution (yellow, black, orange, gray, and silver)
  • Splatter (lime green, magenta, purple, black, and orange)
  • Undead Red (red, yellow, white, black, and orange)


The Hammershot features a direct plunger system.

Aftermarket cylinders for the Hammershot can be purchased that increase its capacity to six, seven, or eight darts. There are also cylinders that allow the blaster to fire other types of ammunition such as Mega Darts or BOOMco. Smart Stick Darts.

Aftermarket hammers and triggers are also popular in Hammershot mods, as they may be more ergonomic. These components may also be made of metal.

3D printed kits for the Hammershot also exist, such as ones that add a muzzle and full length Picatinny rail to the blaster. Hammershots with these parts are easier to aim, and are sometimes known as "Magnum Hammershots".[citation needed]


  • The Hammershot is essentially the "brother" blaster to the Rebelle Sweet Revenge, released the same year; unlike the Sweet Revenge, it features a faux-wood finish on its handle and fake fabric wrapped around it.
  • The Hammershot, along with the Sweet Revenge, are the first Nerf blasters to accurately mimic the user interaction of operating a real life hammer-action revolver.
