There is nothing better than a spontaneous Nerf war! Shooting at your friends without killing them will always be fun, but which Nerf weapons are best for foam firefights?
Nerf Guns: What is not fun?
Many factors influence the way a Nerf pistol handles a fight. Here are some things you should consider before choosing your weapon:
- Capacity: In a Nerf war, you want as much ammunition as possible. Smaller weapons can usually only contain between three and six arrows, which means that you have to take extra & # 39; s and reload them one by one. With larger guns you can use a magazine that you can prefill for faster reloading.
- Ammunition: There are many types of Nerf rounds: darts, large rockets, foam balls, etc. There are also different variations of those rounds, such as elite and suction arrows, or whistlers. Each type of ammunition has unique properties that affect speed, range and accuracy.
- Speed: How fast your gun fires, reloads and fires, determines your fighting style. If you use a slower, single-shot gun, you will probably spend more time behind cover to avoid precisely targeted shots, because you cannot launch a suppressing fire. However, if you have a fully automatic Nerf gun, it is easier for you to go outside and press opponents to stay covered.
- Priming method: One of the biggest factors that influence how fast your gun can shoot is the priming method. Nerf has guns that use slides, hammer action, bolt action, battery powered primers and other creative methods to prepare for the next round for firing. The way a gun reloads affects not only the speed at which you can reload, but also how often the gun crashes.
- Range and Accuracy: Your gun must shoot accurately at a long distance to win a Nerf war. The closer you are to your opponent, the greater the chance that you will be shot. The further your gun can accurately shoot, the greater the chance that you will not be hit by stray darts. Accuracy is incredibly important to the overall experience of the game. There is nothing more frustrating than shooting someone right to see the arrow fly in whatever direction he wants.
0th place: N-Strike Elite Triad EX-3
This little pea shooter may look small, but has a great punch. The N-Strike Elite Triad EX-3 comes with three Elite darts loaded in its three barrels. The barrels fire one by one, starting from the bottom to the top left and then to the top right.
To tension the gun, pull the lever on the bottom until you hear a click. It's a slower way to prime, but what it lacks in speed makes it good in distance. It can fire arrows up to 90 feet – quite a distance for something that fits in the palm of your hand.
9th place: Rival Artemis XVII-3000
The Rival Artemis XVII-3000 is the cut-off shotgun of powerful Nerf guns. The round foam balls look harmless, but, as the name suggests, they can leave a nice sting. These rounds are meant to make a punch. They shoot at 100 feet per second and are like a cross between Nerf darts and paintballs.
The Artemis has three rotating vessels. They alternate after each shot and can hold up to 30 high-impact rounds. You reload manually, round by round, in each of the three barrels. This gun uses pumping action to fill the laps – just hold the front handle, pull it back, and then pump it forward. It only takes a second, so you quickly go through laps during intense sessions.

The Rival Artemis XVII-3000 is a cross between a Nerf shotgun and a paintball gun. It has a large capacity of impactful rounds, making it perfect for long battles.
8th place: Zombie Strike Nailbiter
The Zombie Strike Nailbiter is one of the more interesting toy weapons from Nerf. It comes from the line with the zombie apocalypse theme and it has the shape of a nail gun, making you automatically the coolest person on the battlefield.
The best of this gun is the eight-dart, self-indexing magazine clip, and the combination suction and firing mechanism. After you shoot every round, the clip moves up from a hole on top of the gun and prepares the next arrow for shooting. The trigger operates the filling mechanism, which automatically fires the round when it is finished without batteries. Both things work together seamlessly and allow you to empty an entire magnet in seconds, just by pressing the trigger.
7th place: Modulus Tri-Strike
The Modulus Tri-Strike has a bit of everything in it. It uses a combination of add-on accessories to create one insane Nerf fusion. The base is a standard Elite dartblaster with a 10-dart clip, it uses bolting priming, so it is more a slower gun than a quick-shot weapon.
Then there is the Modulus MEGA dartloop extension that has four MEGA MEGA darts are thicker than elite darts, so they have a harder impact but don't shoot that far.To fire this part of the gun, push forward and throw the gray slider under the tool. back.
The gun comes with the Modulus Missile Launcher stock, so you can shoot one of Nerf's huge rockets at your opponent. The stock compresses and prepares the rocket for launch. To do this, push in with two hands or – to prime in intense situations without laying down the gun – hit the stick in your shoulder.
All these components work independently or together. There are also other Modulus series add-ons that you can exchange with parts on this gun to make it even more customized.

5th place: Rival Nemesis MXVII-10K
The Rival Nemesis MXVII-10K is a fully automatic high impact Nerf gun that should not be taken lightly. Fully automatic Nerf pistols usually have a common problem: getting stuck. This gun uses the impactful, ball-shaped rounds, which are much easier to insert into an automated firing mechanism and are therefore less susceptible to jamming.
The Nemesis holds up to 100 rounds in its funnel and is one of the easiest Nerf weapons to reload. There is a bolt on top of the funnel, so you can quickly dump multiple rounds and fire them at 100 feet per second. It works just like a paintball gun.
The only drawback is that it requires six D batteries or one of Nerf's rechargeable Rival batteries to power the Rival Nemesis. However, it cannot be fully automatic without batteries.
4th place: N-Strike Elite AccuStrike RaptorStrike
The N-Strike Elite AccuStrike Raptor Strike is the Nerf version of a sniper rifle – need I say more? This gun is incredibly accurate and perfect for distant attacks. With the bipod you can get low to the ground and align shots, while remaining stabilized for better accuracy.
The locking mechanism is fast and loads from one of the two six-dart magazines that come with the gun.
3rd place: Zombie Strike FlipFury
The Zombie Strike FlipFlury is another unique gun from the Zombie Strike series. It has two separate rotating six-shot barrels. After it has been rotated through all the rounds in one barrel, the barrel system rotates to align the other so that you can shoot off. This gives you time to reload the bottom loop while shooting from the top.
The filling mechanism allows you to fire with one hand, although you have to turn both between the barrels. This gun has two triggers – you pull the lower one to prime and the upper one to fire. If you keep the trigger pressed, it will close the fire every time you pull the start button and you can empty the magazine in seconds.
2nd place: N-Strike Elite Delta Trooper
The second place on our list goes to the N-Strike Elite Delta Trooper. It comes with attachable stock and barrel extensions that turn it into a standard Nerf rifle issue. The large magazine contains twelve elite darts, so you can continue the battle without turning off mags every 30 seconds.
The priming mechanism is at the top. You push the slider back and forth to fill the weapon and then press the standard trigger to shoot. This makes it easy to shoot multiple laps back-to-back.
The gun fires up to 90 feet, so you can bridge the distance between you and your opponent with an accurate shot.
1st Place: N-Strike Elite Strongarm
The N-Strike Elite Strongarm takes its place as the number one Nerf gun on our list. It is the spiritual successor to Nerf & # 39; s famous Maverick pistol, but somehow manages to get better. It is more streamlined, less prone to jam and fires up to 90 feet.
It holds its elite arrows in a classic barrel with six shots. A release button on the side lets the barrel fall into an easier position for quick loading. Filling this gun is incredibly easy. Just pull the gray slider on the back and release it. If you hold the trigger while filling the gun, the darts will fire as soon as the filling is complete, so that you can empty the entire course in six quick movements.
