The Whistler Dart, also known as the Sonic Micro Dart (Sonic Dart in Japan), is a type of Nerf dart that whistles when fired at medium to long ranges.


Both the Whistler Dart and the Sonic Micro Dart are based off of the Micro Dart. The ammo's signature whistle is created by a small opening at the top. This opening, however, can make the dart inaccurate compared to other darts. If the dart opening faces upwards when shot, it can improve distance due to an updraft keeping the dart from bending down. It is easier to hear the whistle indoors.


Differences between the Sonic Micro Dart and the Whistler Dart include a different color scheme, a stronger dart head and a firmer foam body for the Whistler Dart. Despite this, the Sonic Micro Dart was still available in stores, and is also more accurate.


The Sonic Micro Dart was the first of the two dart types and was made popular with the release of the Vulcan EBF-25. However, in most countries, it was phased out by the Whistler Dart.

  • The darts packaged with the Clue Elimination game have some notable differences. They have a "?" logo on the tip in place of the Nerf logo, the hole in the tip is larger, making a higher pitched sound, and the foam is denser, much like an Elite Dart.
  • Some modders prefer to modify longer range Nerf blasters to use these darts because they have the downside of revealing an enemy's shooting position if they are perched or "camping."
