A Longshot CS-6's direct plunger system.

A direct plunger is a type of plunger system. It used to be the most common plunger type before the reverse plunger was introduced.

However, the most recent series of dart blasters, N-Strike Elite, has reintroduced the direct plunger in order to achieve higher ranges.

The direct plunger system is favored by the modding community, as it gives a blaster much more power.


Standard direct plunger

A standard direct plunger is coated with rubber, so that when the blaster is primed, the rubber creates a seal, thereby forming air pressure to shoot the dart. Most older blasters used cup-seals, where the seal was a large rubber cup, however most current blasters use an o-ring. Modders take advantage of this by making tighter seals, increasing the size of the plunger to create more pressure, adding extra o-rings, etc.

Motorized direct plunger

A motorized direct plunger is the same as a standard direct plunger except for the fact that there is a motor inside the blaster, so that the mechanism can repeatedly fire without any manual priming.
