It will comes packaged with five Zombie Strike darts and instructions.
The Hammershot, and the entire Zombie Strike line, are Target exclusives in North America.
The Hammershot is essentially the "brother" blaster to the Rebelle Sweet Revenge; unlike the Sweet Revenge, it features a faux-wood finish on its handle and fake fabric wrapped around it. It also sports a tactical rail on top of the blaster and has a clip point for a sling or bandolier on the end of the handle. It sports the Z-Strike logo just behind the forward mounted cylinder.
This revolving-shot blaster has a high rate of fire compared to its 2013 counterpart offering--the Sledgefire. With five darts in the cylinder and a single-action hammer performance, the Hammershot fires as quickly as the firer is capable. Younger Nerfers will likely need two hands to operate the blaster, whereas older Nerfers should have no trouble firing two blasters at once. Either way, the darts should hit the target more often than not with the superior accuracy despite the short barrel.
Reloading and firing
To reload the Hammershot, simply slide darts into the five chambers of the revolver. Pull the cocking hammer down fully, then release.
To fire, pull the trigger.
It can also be fired by holding the trigger and "fanning" the hammer. This tends to reduce distance, however.
|Firing range||10/10||This blaster fires fifty-five feet flat, and can reach seventy feet if angled.|
|Accuracy||9/10||The Hammershot is a fairly accurate blaster.|
|Reliability||8/10||This blaster cannot jam, but if it is fired quickly, care must be taken to not waste any darts. Not pulling the hammer all the way down can result in a weak shot, misfire or jam.|
|Rate of fire||9/10||This blaster can fire up to two darts per second.|
|Capacity||6/10||This blaster holds up to five darts at a time, and is reloaded easily.|
|8.4/10||The Hammershot is a great sidearm. With strong range, accuracy, and reliability, the only downside is it having a lower-than-usual capacity. Dual wielding is another perk of the Hammershot.|
- This is the second non-electronic Nerf blaster that can be dual wielded, the first being the Dart Tag Snapfire 8. Previous multi-shot single action designs such as the N-Strike Maverick REV-6 could be primed with one hand by using a sling or catching the slide another object, but this was an improvised solution.
- The Hammershot, along with the Sweet Revenge, are the first Nerf blasters to accurately mimic the user interaction of operating a real single action revolver.
