The Blast Shield, the first Nerf detachable shield.

A shield is a blaster accessory. Shields can help to block water, discs, missiles or darts.


Nerf and Super Soaker shields are typically plastic pieces that can be attached to the blaster through the usage of a tactical rail. This gives shields the ability to be used on a wide variety of blasters, although their size may prevent them from working on certain blasters. This problem most notably affects the Lightningstorm shield, which has part of it hanging down to the sides, which causes some wide blasters to not be compatible with it.

Depending on the rules set, shields may or may not be allowed to be used during Nerf wars. To avoid problems, ask the host of the war whether shields are allowed or not.


The first Nerf tactical shield was the N-Strike Blast Shield, which was released with the Stampede ECS in 2010.
