N-Strike Mega (formerly N-Strike Elite Mega), trademarked as N-Strike MEGA (or N-Strike MEGA Series), is a series and sub-series of Nerf blasters that was released in 2013.


The N-Strike Mega series features the use of an updated Mega Dart type, and features blasters that have firing ranges of up to a hundred feet (twenty-three meters). Blasters within this series have a red color scheme and feature the "Mega" logo frequently on each's shell design.


The N-Strike Mega series began as a sub-series of N-Strike and N-Strike Elite blasters. This was the first series to use the newer type of Mega Dart.

In June of 2014, the Magnus was spotted under Zombie Strike color schemes. In addition, Mega Darts also became a Zombie Strike product, with both released under the Z.E.D. Squad sub-series. This meant that the N-Strike Mega series had officially crossed over to the Zombie Strike line alongside many other current series.

Sometime in late 2014, it was announced that Hasbro would more than likely not be producing any further clip system Mega blasters because of reasons relating to the Centurion's relative lack of success.[1]

In 2015, the BigShock was released, becoming the first Mega blaster to feature the N-Strike logo on its packaging instead of the N-Strike Elite logo.

The sub-series eventually evolved into its own series, with 2016 packaging dropping the N-Strike and N-Strike Elite logos entirely. Despite this, the Lightning Bow was released under the N-Strike Elite series that same year.

The AccuStrike Series was included as a sub-series of N-Strike Mega in 2018, with the release of the Thunderhawk.

  • N-Strike Mega blasters sold in the United Kingdom are gray trigger blasters with weakened internals, however, normal blasters sold in the United Kingdom are normal orange trigger variants. The reason for this is unknown.
