The Twisted Spinner is a Mattel dart blaster that was released in 2014 under the BOOMco. series.

It comes packaged with a detachable Smart Stick Shield, eight Smart Stick Darts, and one Smart Stick Target.[1]


The Twisted Spinner features a single attachment rail above the blaster, where its Smart Stick Shield is commonly attached. It also has one strap point in the back handle.

The blaster's namesake comes from its barrel, which rotates 310 degrees after firing to the next dart.

It advertises a firing range of up to seventy feet (twenty meters).[1]

  • The official description and video for the Twisted Spinner refer to firing the blaster as "slam fire"[1], which is a term Nerf advertises for some of its blasters. The distinction is that slam firing Nerf blasters feature separate firing triggers and offer slam-fire as an option; the Twisted Spinner is slam-fire only.
  • The Twisted Spinner is not the only blaster in the first BOOMco. line to not have a separate firing trigger. The Stealth Ambush also doesn't have a separate firing trigger.
