It comes packaged with six Collectible Darts.
The Guardian Crossbow is shaped much like an actual crossbow, albeit the bow is purely cosmetic (the fake bowstring passes through a ring attached to the plunger, but it generates no force: the plunger moves the string and not the other way round). It has a long tactical rail on its top. It also features an integrated shoulder stock, as well as two strap points located in both the bottom of the handle and the top point of the stock.
It can be slam fired and advertises ranges of up to seventy-five feet.
The Guardian Crossbow has been released in the following color schemes:
- Rebelle (white, purple, pink, black, and orange)
- Guardian Crossbow Target Set (white, black, pink, and orange)
The Guardian Crossbow has been released in a value pack along with ten Collectible Darts, a mesh bag, and three targets.
Reloading and firing
To reload the Guardian Crossbow, load in six darts into the muzzle of the blaster and pump the blaster to prime it.
Pull the trigger to fire a dart.
To slam fire, hold down the trigger and continuously prime the blaster.
- The version of the Guardian Crossbow shown off at the 2013 New York City Toy Fair was unable to slam fire. This may be due to the fact that a prototype of the blaster was shown off and was not a finished product.
- There exists a value pack which includes the blaster with an alternate color scheme, three targets and twelve "deco darts".
- Though not intended to be fired that way, the blaster can be bow-fired by operating the bowstring ring as a hammer. A Nerfer with large enough and strong enough hands could conceivably operate one in each hand just with the thumbs, making it one of the few non-electronic blasters able to be dual-wielded.
