Not to be confused with the newer Mega Dart.

A Mega Dart, also known as a Sucker Dart, is a type of Nerf dart that was released in 1993.

Details

Mega Darts are longer and slightly bigger in diameter than a typical Micro Dart.

There were two different types of Mega Darts; these had a similar appearance, making them hard to identify between.

The original version of the dart, referred to as "Type 1", had a longer range, but was less durable. When blasters started to use compression rings, Nerf switched to a different model that looked similar. While this version, dubbed "Type 2", was similar in appearance, its range was much more mediocre in comparison.

History

First introduced in 1993, the Mega Dart was one of the first types of Nerf darts. It was modeled after the Sharpshooter Dart released a year prior. A majority of blasters in the 1990s and early 2000s featured use of Mega Darts.

The 1997 Electric Eel featured a Glow-In-The-Dark variant of the Mega Dart. Unlike modern Glow-In-The-Dark Darts, the Mega Dart featured phosphorescent paper wrapped around its body; the dart itself was not glow-in-the-dark and essentially a normal Mega Dart.

Type 1 Mega Darts were discontinued in July of 1997.[1] Type 2 was last used in 1998.

It was succeeded by 1999 Screamin' Mega Dart, which was used until 2007.

A modern Mega Dart was released in 2013 with the N-Strike Mega Centurion.
