The Snapfire 8 is a Nerf blaster that was released on July 3, 2012 under the Dart Tag series.

It comes packaged with eight Tagger Micro Whistler Darts.

It is a Toys "R" Us exclusive in the United States.


Like other newer Dart Tag blasters, the Snapfire does not feature a tactical rail or any support for use with barrel extensions or detachable shoulder stocks. It is very similar in appearance to the Speedswarm and the Swarmfire, but it is not automatic.

The Snapfire features a knob on the bottom of the blaster's handle that allows the user to slightly adjust the blaster's spring length, changing the power of the plunger. The side of the handle has a small indicator to show how far it's been adjusted. One end of the scale is Speed, where the spring is more slack, which allows the trigger to be pulled more easily but decreases the range. The other end is Power, where the spring is given additional tension, making the trigger more difficult to pull but shooting the dart further. The dial can also be adjusted to a point between the two.

With the dial set to speed, ranges will fall between twenty-five to thirty feet flat. With the dial set to power, ranges will average around thirty-five to forty feet flat.

Firing mechanism

The way it is able to shoot semi-auto while not requiring batteries is simple: As hinted by the long trigger pull, pulling the trigger pulls back the plunger tube, and when it reaches the end, releases it, causing the dart to be propelled out of the barrel. The adjustable length of the spring means the trigger varies in how difficult it is to pull.


The Snapfire was released July 3, 2012 in Singapore and some European countries. It was released in the United States on February 22, 2013.[1]


  • The Snapfire is the first true dual-wieldable blaster offered by Nerf.
