The Strikefire, originally known as the Crossfire, is a single-fire Nerf blaster that was released in 2005 under the Dart Tag series.

It comes packaged with six Tagger Micro Darts, a fist-sized shield, and official Vision Gear.

In some countries like India and New Zealand, it is found in single packs with Vision Gear and a Scoring Vest. However in the United States and most other countries, it is only found in a blaster set.

Details

The Strikefire features a small reverse tactical rail on top of it, allowing it to be attached to other blasters with a tactical rail. It has a total capacity of six darts. It is the only blaster to have an inverse tactical rail instead of a regular tactical rail apart from the Titan AS-V.1. Like the Hyperfire and Magstrike, the trigger is a two-fingered trigger with small holes indented on it.

Much like the Nite Finder EX-3 and the Element EX-6, users can store darts under the blaster, and although they may fall out, it is quite unlikely to happen.

History

The Strikefire was first seen in December 2005 on KB Toys' website under the Crossfire name.[1] A listing from December 2005 also appeared on Hasbro's website detailing the blaster and its features.[2]

It was re-released in 2008 in the Strikefire 2-Player Duel System. A Star Wars variant appeared at the 2008 Toy Fair, however it has not been seen since. It is unknown if it was cancelled.

Color schemes

The Strikefire has been released with the following color schemes:

Modification

The Strikefire is a fairly easy blaster to modify. Barrel replacements are highly common and relatively easy to do.[3][4][5] Coupler modifications are also common, and can result in an easy boost in range.[6]

Another easy and common mod is minimization, most notably the ammunition storage in the front.[7] More complicated mods can be completed, including integrations.[8]

Value packs

The Strikefire was sold briefly at Walmart with a free Firestrike in matching colors to the blaster sold in the package, either red or blue.[9] This was sold briefly in 2006. The Strikefire 2-Player Duel System was also offered in an NDTL value pack with Nerf Dart Tag League vests and bags.

Reloading and firing

To reload the Strikefire, load a dart into the muzzle of the blaster and pull the slide on the top back of the blaster to prime it.

Pull the trigger back to fire a dart.

Trivia

  • The dual pack is known as Strikefire, where as the single pack is known as the Crossfire.
  • The Strikefire works very well as an attachment to larger blasters, since it allows an extra dart to be fired if one is not deemed enough.
