Top 10 Best Nerf Guns

The Top Ten

1 N-Strike Raider Rapid Fire CS-35 Dart Blaster

unparallelled ammo capacity, unbeatable rate of fire, sturdy and lightweight with the exception of the side heavy drum magazine. detatchable stock adds to the useability of the gun and all you need to start gaming is in the box, unlike some other guns which come only with a handful of darts and a single 6 shot magazine.

Despite it's jamming, I'd have to say that the Raider is better than the Stampede because of it's capacity and speed. The Raider was the First Nerf gun I ever wanted but instead, I got a Vulcan. Now don't get me wrong: I like the Vulcan but I was just more naturally drawn to the Raider. And that was because of the 35 Dart Drum. Now, about it's speed: when it doesn't jam, I can get about 4 darts a second. I just like it better. BUT, the gun I think that deserves the spot of #1 is the new N-Strike Elite "Rampage". A lot of the N-Strike Elite guns are just sequels to old N-Strike guns. The Rampage is the sequel to the Raider. I don't have the Rampage yet, but I've heard that it jams a whole lot less than the Raider. Other than that, the Rampage is perfect.

Best nerf gun by far. I really want it so bad and I'm looking to save up for it. IT holds so many bullets and it fires pretty fast. You have to get it. You;ll love it so much.

Love this gun! NEVER jams bad it basically snipes best gun ever!

2 N-Strike Longstrike CS-6 Dart Blaster

It's so far the best nerf gun ever made. Its got very awesome and stylish looks and I like the design very much for me it doesn't jam that much... I mainly like this gun because I play a lot of Call of Duty with snipers and it reminds me of that. I get the real Call of Duty feeling after using it!

Definitely a better Nerf sniper then the Longshot, this is the perfect gun for a sneak attack. It can hold three clips, that's 21 darts. - Blubbydubber1

This gun is an under powered sniper rifle that gets accuracy at the sacrifice of range and shell velocity, as well as rate of fire. At medium range however, this gun is in its prime, easily can finish the enemy in one or two well aimed shots. Good for fire support, but its slow load time makes it unsatisfactory for engaging multiple enemies up front, especially at long range.

Definitely but what about the raptor strike

3 N-Strike Elite RapidStrike CS-18 Blaster

N-Strike Elite RapidStrike Because its the fastest nerf gun

Replace the motors and ramp up the voltage for more range! But even stock has a great firing rate and is more accurate than the Vulcan

I just got this gun and it's amazing. When you pick it out the box you know you have something special. It's a great paint job, doesn't jam and really coll looking. Don't forget it's the fastest shooter, I got mine at 40 pounds at Argos but it's about 25 at amazon but I'm a kid and I don't have an amazon account. Overall it's a great gun but buy it cheaper online.

4 N-Strike Elite Retaliator Blaster

One of the best blasters nerf has ever made, and I'm not exaggerating. With a long range, awesome color scheme and the right handling and specs, it tops most nerf guns out there.

I'm getting one for my birthday, and it says not he box it has 4 possible models. I enjoy it, because of its superior accuracy, power, and weight. Its light and compact, so it doesn't feel weird, runnin around with a 10 pound nerf gun.

I think it's the best gun. So many different options with the parts it comes with. I really think its amazing but there's one downside, Once you use it a lot it gets kind of hard to prime which can be a pain. It has amazing range and is easy to run around with. I love it!

I used to have this gun, so awesome

5 N-Strike Longshot CS-6

It is so cool. It has a scope, it has 2 blasters-in-one, and has an refill clip for safety, and it even has a tripod

Good it has AWESOME SCOPE.

First of its kind, with a direct plunger so basically its an Elite gun

With scope its OP

6 N-Strike Vulcan EBF-25 Dart Blaster

The vulcan is my favorite and possibly the best nerf gun ever because it is fully automatic and has a really cool cool 25 dart ammo belt that has its own attachable ammo box that is fun to load, also the vulcan has an attachable tripod that is good for manning the vulcan as a turret but if you don't like it or you need to get on the run you can easily detach it. Whit a great handle to make steady shots will mean a lot in nerf war. Shooting 3 darts per second with a 25 dart ammo belt gives you 8 seconds of shooting and you can always buy a spare dart belt so you don't need to worry about ammo. But keep in mind the vulcan requires 6D batteries for full auto. And really you can't say the vulcan dosn't look cool.

This is the best,
Looks the best,
Shoots the best

Undeniably the best nerf gun ever. Stupidly powerful, very good fire rate, lots of ammo. There's a reason these are so rare and expensive.

I think the volcano is the best because you can go automatic or you can go pump

7 N-Strike Maverick

The Maverick has got to be overall the best nerf gun. At around 10 dollars, this thing is awesome as you can reload very fast, and it has exceptional accuracy, and it is great for indoor battles. Any dart will work in it, especially streamlines which can give it more range. Plus, it looks really cool.

This gun sucks like hell! The strongarm is way better. when I bought this thing it can only shoot 28 feet maximum, the maverick wears down after time. now my maverick can only shoot 15 feet at the max! Poor accuracy as well! Bad gun!

It's a very good gun and its range is also good

This is definitely in the top ten nerf guns

8 Rampage

Amazing gun and I like the fact of rapid AND semi on the blaster another thing I like which is on all n strike elites is that it has a direct plunger system and that helps the range of the gun also that it is not baterie powered so you really don't have to worry about anything extra and it rarely gets jammed if you shot it properly

This will always be the best gun because of its semi-auto, light, easy to control, doesn't jam much and has 25 ammo. In my opinion it's the best because of it's EXCELLENT accuracy. I have the rampage and I honestly think it is the best out of all.

From what I can tell, of all the guns, this one HAS to be #1. I don't understand why it is that people sometimes look down on it because this gun would beat all the entire competition single-handedly. High power, high distance (in other words, it actually does have the claimed "elite distance,") unmatched accuracy, and a perfect amount of ammo. I do have the Raider, but it wears out easily, doesn't have the best distance, and the clip on the side that it comes with tilts the weight a little too far to the side. This gun is unmatched no matter what other people say about it, need I say more?

Good rate of fire plus being silent until you shoot,make it an excellent surprise attack nerf gun

9 N-Strike Elite Hail-Fire

Shoots 65 feet and shoots really hard hurts too you can attach bi-pod from stampede and it wont feel so awkward to hold - cnashbystar

I think hail fire is better because it is big and it looks cool and even if it is big it can shoot 20m it's not about the distance it's absolute. If you will take the risk buying it and enjoying playing with it.

Not a good gun. It may carry lots of darts but it is very uncomfortable and tricky to run around with. In the packaging it says it can fire up to 2 football pitches but can't fire up to even one pitch. I wouldn't recomend it to anyone.

This is an awesome blaster, just wish it was full auto

10 N-Strike Stampede ECS

ACR 6.8 as a toy gun! Best nerf gun ever hands down... No questions asked! Look it's better than the vulcan ok! Thumbs up if you agree!

The stampede is the best gun ever made. It should be in the first place not in the fourth place. It is better than the vulcan. Ok.

Stampede is by far the best gun because of its high rate of fire without any pump action required. In battles it is much better than the new automatic guns because you don't need to hold down the charge trigger.

The Contenders

11 Strongarm (N-Strike Elite)

It's the best. It shoots hard, longer and faster. Reload is really easy. IT's easy to carry and it's not expensive. I beat a stampede in a nerf war with this thing. IT's really accurate. It's like a maverick only better.

This gun is the better version of the maverick I really really love it

Strogarm wins easily.
It aims the best, it shoots the longest, it hits the hardest, it shoots the best. It is totally the best overall

Great Aim

12 Nerf N-Strike Elite Rough Cut 2x4

Slam fire means all 8 darts in 1 second, beats all of the N-Strike Elite guns for rate of fire and has more overall range than most of the others and at £18 it's well worth the price the only thing it lacks is accuracy but it's a shotgun so what do you expect? Best secondary weapon so far and it even fits in the holder on the Elite Tactical Vest.

Great range, compact, 2 for 1 shoot, easy to reload, takes stream line darts that are easy to find plus it's a shotgun which means it gets 10 awesome points

It can shoot 2 darts at a time, it is a cool color and it even has a rail! Who doesn't like it!

This is the best nerf gun ever. I've beat rapidstrikes and centurions with ease. And firing one shotgun blast and hitting two different people is the most awesome feeling.

13 Zombie Strike Hammershot

How is this not higher up on the list? It's sleek design makes it a perfect sidearm and it's ability to prime and shoot with one hands sets it apart from similar blasters such as the Strongarm. It front loads, so you don't have to change a clip or open a chamber to reload, and it takes almost every kind of dart (a key feature in most any Nerf War).

This gun is the future of Nerf pistols or at least a

Design that will be here to stay. Solid weight but still

Lighter than a Strongarm or Maverick one hand firing.

With big enough hands this could easily be duel wielded

Better than the maverick or the strong arm. Does have

He draw back of one less shot but shoots with accuracy and

Distance close to a Strongarm. No slam fire but you can

Fan fire the gun like An old school revolver.

I bought two of these straight up. I found them extremely fun to use, with good distance and accuracy. The reloading may be slightly slow and a bit difficult but this blaster is still the best handgun I have ever had.

Dual wield and accuracy make these blasters the best

14 Nerf Elite Mega Centurion

I buy mega centurion because it was a big nerf gun, the range 100 feet 80% on indoor, 60% outdoor, you will never miss a a mug in 50 feet range shoot with a good mega dart, the problem is when amateur use this gun like a fully automatic gun it will stuck and damage the dart, that's why the gun cannot fire 100 feet range and accurate 100%, it should be top ten

Good for sneaking mission, mega centurion metal gear. solid sniper wolf

This is the best sniper ever made by nerf. I'm an experienced nerfer and I have almost all the nerf guns. Out of all, this gun is the best sniper ever made by nerf. It shoots mega darts which go up to a hundred feet and the shooting sound is really awesome & realistic. The gun looks good and it's really comfortable to hold. The only downside of this gun is once you put on the barrel, you can't pull it off ever again. But that doesn't matter to me. The best sniper, this should be at #1

Range is amazing awesome gun should be number one

Long range and good aiming. Only thing bad is how big it is

15 Titan

I don't like this gun. First of all, It only has one shot and then your done. Second, there's usually a wind current in a direction, meaning it NEVER Hits where you want it to. And third, if it does somehow hit the person, you can't really get it BACK.

The biggest rocket launcher from nerf, who you want to shot with this RPG? Tank? Building? Human? What do you think?

I used to have so Much fun with this thing. It's too bad they don't make it anymore.

Satisfying headshots

16 Vortex Pyragon

I like this gun because it come with different disks and the magazine is great as well the handle of the gun is very comestible so you can hold the gun for a long period of time it can fire 2 types of modes rapid fire, single fire
I rate this gun a easy 9 1/2 out of 10.

In our view, this is without doubt the best Disc Nerf Blaster in the world for sheer fire power, distance and rate of fire. if you get your technique right it is 6/8 discs/second, no jams, ever unless the blaster has done about 500 hrs in a Nerf Arena. It is fast, it does have that huge forty disc load capicity but it does have the downside that it takes 2 minutes to reload. Nevertheless, it will always be in our top ten of all time espically in our arena as voted by the players, all 3,000 of them over the summer of 2014.

I rate this gun 7 out of 10. I like the Praxis a lot better why is it FIVE LOWER than this?

it farts

17 N-Strike Elite Stryfe

Incredible gun, gets great ranges of 47-58 feet fired flat, gets the advertised 75 ft if fired at an angle, the aesthetics of this gun are very pleasing, with it possessing a somewhat streamlined appearance whilst retaining elements of the slightly chunky, boxy shaped semi auto pistol it's based on. Another great aspect is its fantastic accuracy (I could hit a pole from 40 ft consistently) this, paired with its impressive ranges, excellent rate of fire (4 dps) and brilliant versatility (barrel and stock attachment points with 2 tactical rails) make for an almost unbeatable blaster. I really think this deserves a place in the top ten, why it isn't I don't know.
Ps. Have not experienced any jamming problems yet, as it only jams if using an older, non elite clip or glow in the dark clip, which I don't intend to use anyway

With normal darts it rarely if ever jams. If you hook up a 9V battery and two AAs you can eliminate the problem of time needed to re-rev up after a shot.

I think this is a brilliant gun because you can hold down on the button then keep pressing the trigger to fire! It carry's a 6 bullet tank!

Should be #1

18 Recon Cs-6

Fairly powerful, doesn't jam very often, my favourite gun due to its huge versatility. Stock is really useful as it holds an extra clip and this gun really should be in the top 5. I much prefer it to my stampede because the stampede weighs a ton, and is extremely badly balanced due to the 6 D batteries in the back. My favourite nerf gun, and should be at the top.

How is this not in the top 10? Detachable barrel allows many attachments! Very good range, and a nice laser.

The laser really helps and you could add the scope it's a real good sniper

I can say from my personal experience that this gun is the best

19 Jolt EX-1

So small an compact it can fit in a pocket. It's incredibly powerful, very accurate and easy to reload. True, it only holds one dart, but if you carry a few more around in your pocket you'll never run out.

Easy, powerful, quick, AND, VERY streamline. I feel like James Bond every shot, less bulk so better than the Triad EX-1 by %100. All this for $4!

It's helpful at short range being small and powerful, ands an be very annoying if you have more darts close by

20 N-Strike Elite Rayven CS-18 Blaster

This is clearly the best gun as you don't have to pull ANYTHING back to fire only hold a small button!

This awesome semi auto blaster is just amazing by far the best

I really like the design, and the performance is pretty good.

Has better motors than the strfye,stockade,and any other gun After the Raven and small able to duel wiede And Good accruecy
