Nerf Wiki

Zombie Strike, alternatively stylized as Zombiestrike, is a series of Nerf dart, disc, and Super Soaker blasters that was released on August 4, 2013.


The Zombie Strike series, as its name suggests, is themed after the concept of a zombie apocalypse, as popularly depicted in various pieces of media. A number of blasters have a "homemade, DIY" theme to them as well, featuring power and hand tools built into their designs; others have a cloth-like pattern molded into their handles.

Some blasters feature the logos of other series sculpted into their shells; the Crossfire Bow and Sidestrike have the N-Strike Elite logo built into them, whereas the Fusefire has the Vortex logo. The European releases of these products reflect this in their packaging, as these logos are depicted alongside the Zombie Strike one, making it appear that Zombie Strike is a sub-series. This is missing from the United States releases, which emphasize that Zombie Strike is its own distinct series of products.

A YouTube mini-series expands on the story represented by the products, providing comical tips and scenarios for surviving a Nerf zombie apocalypse.



The Boomer Nova, a pre-production version of the SledgeFire.

During pre-production on the series, Zombie Strike was known as Zombie Hunter, as seen on photos of a SledgeFire prototype. At this point, it also had a different logo design.

In November of 2013, the Zombie Strike series released its first Super Soaker, the Point Break, which came in its own twin pack. Additional Super Soakers would be released in 2015.

It was succeeded by the 2024 Zombie series of blasters.

  • Zombie Strike may also have been influenced by the growing-in-popularity game of Humans vs. Zombies.[citation needed]
  • It has been theorized that the Zombie Strike series was originally supposed to be western-themed, with early blasters such as the Hammershot, SledgeFire, SlingFire, and Doublestrike fitting the bill for "cowboy-action" blasters. Other early blasters from 2014 may have also been intended for release into the N-Strike Elite or Vortex series — based on the logos that appear on their shells — but were repurposed into the Zombie Strike series. It is also possible that the western theme wasn't completely scrapped and instead evolved into the Doomlands 2169 series. There is little evidence to support this theory, however.
  • Across all of its sub-series, the Zombie Strike series features seven different ammunition types: Zombie Strike Darts, Mega Darts, Arrows, XLR Discs, water, Zombie Repellent, and Infectizide.
