Nerf, it’s not just for children.

Yes, when it comes to the world’s most popular brand of toy weaponry, there are many varieties to choose from. However, with this handy gift guide, you’ll know exactly what kind of childhood plaything you should buy that significant other this gift giving season.


Nerf N-Strike Elite Rhino-Fire Blaster: Any good Nerf battle requires a precision machine, something that can fire darts with high powered accuracy and speed. Well, thanks to the Rhino-Fire Blaster, you can do just that with an item that features two drums that will allow you to unleash double barrel action on anyone that crosses your path, as well as a tripod for you nerd snipers out there.


Nerf N-Strike Elite Nerf Cam ECS-12 Blaster: Have you ever wanted to re-live your Nerf battles at the Thanksgiving table with friends and family? Well, now you can with the Elite Nerf Cam ECS-12 Blaster. This rapid fire piece comes equip with a camera that can store up to 2,000 photos or 100 minutes of video thanks to a 4-GB SD card. So, time to shoot some movies, first person style, guys.


Nerf Mega ThunderBow Blaster: Look, we all like to act out our Green Arrow, Hawkeye and Katniss fantasies of being an elite archer in our off time (don’t act like you don’t too), so of course Nerf made it possible to turn those fantasies into reality thanks to their ThunderBow Blaster. With the ability to fire 5 mega darts up to 100 feet, how could you not want this long range piece in your arsenal?


Nerf Elite 2-in-1 Demolisher: With the ability to fire both Nerf darts and missiles up to 90 feet, the Demolisher is a perfect piece for any of your “first one in” kind of Nerf warriors. You know the types, the one’s just itching to make an initial frontal assault, thus allowing the rest of the team to gain entry. If you are, or know someone into that kind of tactical strategy, then this sucker’s gonna make for a perfect holiday gift.

Nerf Zombie Strike SlingFire Blaster: Yes, even Nerf knows that people need be ready for anything, especially the zombie apocalypse, and that’s why they’ve constructed a weapon specifically for that very purpose. With a 6-dart clip and tactical rail for accessorizing, the Zombie Strike SlingFire Blaster is the perfect choice for any prepers out there, and remember, it’s never too early to start training the gang for zombie assaults. You never know what might be lurking down in the basement (hint, it’s probably a zombie).


Nerf N-Strike Elite Tactical Vest Kit: So let’s talk accessories. You can never be too equipped when it comes to Nerf, and that’s why one of the perfect gifts you can get for that inner warrior is a spankin’ new N-Strike Elite Tactical Vest. In addition to the vest itself, the kit also includes extra ammo and “quick reload clips” that will allow you to inflict maximum pretend damage on all your nerf enemies. As they reload, you’ll still be firing, and there’s no better advantage than that.


Nerf Combat Creatures TerraDrone: As you may or may not know, the world of Nerf has evolved in some drastic ways since the days of old, but even we could have never predicted there would one day be Nerf drones. But, there are, and with a 360 degree, rotating head that can move up and down while firing up to 12 darts at targets up to 45 feet away, anybody equipped with this bad boy be unstoppable at your next battle. So why don’t you make sure that person is friend rather than foe.


Nerf Walkie Talkies: No tactical Nerf mission can be successful without good communication, that’s battle plan 101. So why not stay in touch with your allies in style thanks to these nifty Nerf walkies? With a range of up to 1000 feet and the ability to communicate in Morse Code if desired, how could you not get a pair of these for you and a friend to gain the ultimate advantage over your enemies in Nerf battle?


Nerf Zombie Strike Target Set: As we said before, Nerf is a company committed to making sure its customers are ready for all situations, one of which being the zombie apocalypse. However, you can’t be ready without some training, right? That’s where these lovely zombie targets come in. Get your loved one a set of these, and they’ll have plenty of time to prepare themselves for the coming hoard of undead that awaits them in the future. And then you’ll be able to Nerf fight zombies together!


Nerf N-Strike Elite Dart Refill Pack (30 Darts): Whether you have a top of the line weapon or one passed down from generations gone by, no Nerf soldier can survive without plenty of ammo by their side. So, even if you have someone in your life that’s the ultimate of ultimate Nerf warriors, there’s no better gift than this ammo refill back that will make sure they’ll be ready to go when the time comes… but more importantly, it will make sure the fun never has to end once it begins.

    I think this was a pretty decent list. The Rhino-Fire is pretty great and a blast to use. Any kid would love to get one of those. The Nerf Cam is only good for children, really, because the crappy camera would be a big problem for anyone over the age of 10. The Mega bow is fun and has crazy ranges. The Demolisher is also very fun, it takes me back to the days of Call of Duty noob tubes. The SlingFire is the only good Zombie Strike primary blaster, really. So that’s a good choice if you like Zombies. This is a solid list overall. The worst item up there would probably be a tie between the TerraDrone and the Walkie Talkies.

  2. CodeRed says:

    Most of these guns are utter crap. However, the Demolisher and the Jolt from the Zombiestrike Target Set are well worth it. The RhinoFire is a ton of fun, but it’s clearly for those with big-kid-itis, no actual child can hold, let alone shoot the thing.

      These are 100x better than our grey-trigger counterparts. The Sling Fire (orange trigger) rocks compared to the dumbed-down version I have.
