Not to be confused with the 2004 Dart Tag blaster of a similar name.

The HyperFire is a Nerf blaster that was released in fall of 2016 under the N-Strike Elite series. It requires four "D" batteries to be operated.[1]

It comes packaged with a twenty-five dart drum, twenty-five Elite Darts, and instructions.[1]


The HyperFire is a fully automatic flywheel clip system blaster. It features an integrated shoulder stock and a grip located in front of the magazine well. It has a single tactical rail above the front end of the blaster and has four strap points: two on the front end, and two on the back, built into the stock.

Unlike most flywheel blasters, it uses a conveyor system to feed darts into the flywheels, rather than a pusher mechanism. This conveyer system has a faster rate of fire than a pusher mechanism, despite this, it is known to jam on old, worn darts due to the fact that it doesn't have enough grip to slide it into the flywheels smoothly. It also has canted flywheels which induce a rifling effect on fired darts, increasing accuracy.

Official description

It advertises a rate of fire of up to five darts per second.[1]

Value packs

The Hyperfire was released in a Costco exclusive value pack that included the blaster, two twenty-five dart drums, fifty Elite Darts, and instructions.

Reloading and firing

To reload the HyperFire, remove any loaded clips while holding the clip release. Load up a clip and load it back into the blaster.

Hold down the accelerator trigger and pull the firing trigger briefly to fire one dart, or hold the trigger for automatic firing. It may take a moment for the flywheels to come to full speed; firing before that can reduce the dart range.


  • It is thought to be a successor to the N-Strike Elite RapidStrike CS-18, given the similarities in fully-automatic firing and clip loading. However, the HyperFire has a very different design and a larger magazine.
  • The HyperFire has the highest advertised rate of fire of any current N-Strike or N-Strike Elite blaster, with 5 darts per second, although tests have proved it to be possibly higher. Rival blasters such as the Nemesis MXVII-10K come out on top due to torsion springs and more aerodynamic ammo.
