A barrel extension is an optional and interchangeable accessory that is only compatible with certain Nerf blasters. Even though barrel extensions make blasters more accurate, they usually cause a decrease in range due to added friction depending on the size of the tube inside the barrel.

The following blasters are compatible with interchangeable barrel extensions:
- The Deploy CS-6, N-Strike Rayven CS-18, N-Strike Elite Rayven CS-18, Rayven Stinger, Stryfe, RapidStrike CS-18, and Demolisher 2-In-1 are the only blasters that can use a barrel extension that does not come packaged with one.
- This does not include the Retaliator, which has a barrel extension packaged with the regular release but not in the Rapid Strike Mission Kit.
- The Spectre REV-5's barrel has the greatest range due to the fact that the barrel is completely short and is very wide, reducing friction on the barrel. The lowest ranged barrel extension could be the Longstrike CS-6's barrel because it is the longest barrel extension Nerf has made and is not very wide since it can only accept Streamline Darts and Elite Darts.
