Not to be confused with the Nerf N-Strike video game.
The N-Strike series started many new blaster trends in the Nerf line. N-Strike started making tactical rails, accessories and attachments usage popular. N-Strike blasters also resemble and function like real life weaponry much more than previous blasters; the debate whether this is a positive or negative thing is argued among Nerf enthusiasts.
The N-Strike series features the following attachable accessories for blasters:
Note: not all blasters are compatible with each accessory type.
Most N-Strike blasters feature a distinct color scheme: yellow, neon orange, gray, and black.
The N-Strike series has a direct successor series: N-Strike Elite. Despite this, not all N-Strike products will receive the upgrade treatment.
As of 2013, most products in the N-Strike lineup have been discontinued or replaced by the newer, better performing N-Strike Elite blasters. Despite this, certain blasters such as the 2014 Zombie Strike Jolt are sold under the N-Strike banner in certain parts of the world.
Six N-Strike blasters have been re-released under the N-Strike Elite line with color scheme variations to match the series. As these are technically not advertised to be N-Strike Elite blasters and do not match the performance of N-Strike Elite blasters, these are referred to as Elite Repaints.

- This is the longest running and largest series of dart blasters made by Nerf to date.
- This series is the only one that has released more than one video game. It is also the only series whose video games have not used blasters from other series.
- Contrary to popular belief, this is not the first series to release blasters with clips. The first clip-fed blasters were actually the Sawtooth and the Electric Eel from the Max Force series.
- The "N" in "N-Strike" may stand for Nerf.
