The Thunderhawk is a Nerf blaster that was released in fall of 2018[1] under the AccuStrike Series.

It comes packaged with ten Mega AccuStrike Darts.

Details

The Thunderhawk is a bolt-action blaster that features a horizontally-fed, integrated ten dart clip, with similar performance to the Battlescout ICS-10. A non-removable collapsible bi-pod can be found underneath the blaster. The blaster also features an extendable barrel, which transforms the blaster into a sniper style blaster, and has a tactical rail on top. There are several sling points on the back stock as well.

Official description

History

The Thunderhawk was officially announced on January 23, 2018, along with the Infinus.[1] It was later shown off at the 2018 New York Toy Fair.

Trivia

  • It is the longest blaster so far produced by Nerf, surpassing the Centurion by 0.3 inches.
    • Because of this, the Thunderhawk could possibly be considered a successor to the Centurion.
  • The blaster's bolt is removable for storage. Ironically, this feature is pointless due to the blaster's fixed clip always being in the way.
  • The barrel is actually wide enough to not hinder a dart's performance.[2]
  • Despite being not meant to be removable, some Thunderhawk clips can actually be removed from the blaster with no modification. [3]
    • Using a card or a similarly flat object, the clip can be removed from the blaster.[4]
  • Oddly enough, when the barrel of the Thunderhawk is extended, the tactical rail on it moves with it, defeating the purpose of putting on a scope for this "sniper" style blaster.
