The ShellStrike DS-6 is a dart shell Nerf blaster that was released in January of 2020 under the N-Strike Elite series.

It comes packaged with two Elite Shells and six Elite Darts.


The ShellStrike DS-6 is a blaster that uses shells, like the Trilogy DS-15 and the Zombie Strike SledgeFire. The shell's breech can be opened by pressing an eject button near the firing trigger, similar to that of the RIVAL Knockout XX-100. After loading, simply push the breach back to its place. However, after firing the ShellStrike, you have to switch out shells manually.

Due to the ShellStrike's short barrel and separate priming mechanism, one can treat the ShellStrike as a front-loading blaster without needing to eject the shell.

On the bottom of the ShellStrike, there is storage to store two Elite Shells, its type of shell. And beneath that storage spot, there is a single tactical rail located on it. Unlike most blasters, the ShellStrike is primed by a little priming slide is on the back, similar to that of several Star Wars blasters, such as the First Order Stormtrooper Blaster. When the slide is pulled back, the blaster primes.

Official description


The ShellStrike was first leaked online in early November of 2019, featuring the packaging of the ShellStrike. In December 2019, official stock images were leaked alongside that of the RIVAL Takedown XX-800.


  • Despite the fact that the ShellStrike DS-6 can hold two shells in storage and one in the chamber, the blaster only comes with two shells.
  • Interestingly, the stock image of the ShellStrike shows the darts poking out of the shells. This is not an ideal placement because the darts won't be seated properly.
  • Interestingly, the gray-triggered variant does not appear to have weakened performance[citation needed].
