Red Strike is a sub-series of Nerf N-Strike blasters that was released in 2009.

It is exclusive to Walmart.


Red Strike blasters are re-releases of N-Strike blasters with a new, red color scheme.


Red Strike was available only during Black Friday of 2009, making them extremely rare and expensive today.

For a period of time, the sub-series was erroneously referred to as "Crimson Strike".[1] The name has stuck as a nickname since then.
