|Longshot front blaster|
|Also known as: LSFB|
|Blaster type||Single-fire barrel extension/dart blaster (reverse plunger)|
|Stock ammunition type||Streamline Darts|
|Average retail price||N/A|
|This product has been discontinued, but may still be in limited stock in retail stores.
It comes packaged with the Longshot CS-6. It cannot be purchased separately.
Unlike the Longshot, the LSFB is a reverse plunger blaster.
It is notable in that it is the only barrel extension that doubles as a blaster. Most other barrel extensions feature tactical rails in various places and offer nothing more than accuracy. This and the Spectre barrel extension are the only barrel extensions to not have tactical rails. This is also the first barrel extension to also be a blaster.
Often when modifying a Longshot, modders may integrate the LSFB under it, where the bipods are normally located.
Due to this blaster's very small prime, it has some very low stock ranges. This blaster also only accepts Streamline Darts stock. This can be fixed by removing the blaster's air restrictors.
With the release of the 2014 Zombie Strike Longshot CS-12, an updated variation of the Longshot CS-6, the front blaster was removed. It is unknown why, however a similar situation occurred when the tactical ammunition storage was removed in the Barrel Break IX-2's N-Strike Elite re-release.
A logical explanation as to why the front blaster was removed could be because of the difficulty of getting the front blaster's range up to a seventy-five feet as most modern blasters have.
The LSFB has been released with the following color schemes:
- Original (blue/yellow/orange)
- N-Strike (yellow/black/orange)
- Red Strike (red/orange)
Reloading and firing
To reload the Longshot front blaster, put a single dart into the muzzle of the blaster. Pull back the priming mechanism and push it forward to prime the blaster.
Pull the trigger to fire a dart.
