Not to be confused with the N-Strike Elite Firestrike.

The Firestrike is a Nerf blaster that was released in 2005 under the Dart Tag series.

It comes packaged with three Tagger Micro Darts.


The Firestrike has a single tactical rail on top of it, as well as a two dart storage located directly under the muzzle and an integrated light unit that is activated by pulling the trigger halfway. The light has a lens that can be moved to adjust the path of the light beam, allowing the user to compensate for gravitational effects on longer shots.


The Firestrike is the second iteration of the Nite Finder. The Firestrike saw the inclusion of a tactical rail, which was added to the Nite Finder itself (as the Nite Finder EX-3) the previous year.

The blaster was first spotted in October of 2005 at a variety of stores.[2]

A successor blaster to the Nite Finder under the N-Strike Elite series is named the Firestrike; it was released in 2013. Thus, it could be thought to be the successor of the Dart Tag Firestrike.

As of today, this variation of the Nite Finder, especially the red color scheme is the rarest to date, and it is the closest to get to resemble the proposed red Nite Finder in the N-Strike DVD. Also, it is the rarest and or highly collectible production blaster of the 2000s decade thus harder to find than one of the Red Strike series blasters.

Color schemes

The Firestrike comes in the following color schemes:

Reloading and firing

To reload the Firestrike, place a dart into the blaster's muzzle and prime by pulling back the plunger rod located at the back of the blaster.

To fire a dart, pull down the firing trigger.
