The Hammershot is a hammer-action revolver Nerf blaster that was released on August 4th, 2013 under the Zombie Strike series.

It comes packaged with five Zombie Strike darts and instructions.


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 strap point for a sling or bandolier on the end of the handle. It sports the Z-Strike logo just behind the forward mounted cylinder.

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.


The blaster was known in production stages as the "Hammer 5". Some differences between the final and prototype blaster include the handle's lack of a fabric wrap design, adjustments to the front, as well as various color changes.

This was released alongside the Sledgefire in the first line of Zombie Strike blasters. The Hammershot was originally a Target exclusive, but has since then been released in other stores, such as Toys 'R' Us.

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.

This blaster accepts Elite DartsZombie Strike darts, and Collectible Darts. It does not accept streamline darts.


  • 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.

    • The strongarm barely even fires with slam-fire, the darts just drop out a few inches away from the gun.
    • Since it appears the thread has been revived, I'll add this in: Apparently, the finickiness of the Hammershot is mainly from playing with it...
