Nerf N-Strike Elite SurgeFire Review For Hasbro (Age 8+)

The Nerf N-Strike Elite SurgeFire is a great manually powered blaster with the option of single shot or slam fire. It has full Nerf power, a rotating 15 dart cartridge and great accuracy. Three of us were excited about opening this one and none of us were disappointed.


There is minimal assembly required because you have to fit the 15 dart rotating drum - which just slots in until it clicks and then can't be removed. The box is cardboard and simple to open, there are no batteries and you can be playing with your blaster in seconds - Christmas morning friendly.


15 of the Elite Darts are included - a good amount for a battle and it's quick to reload, although the design means you can only insert 14 darts without rotating the cartridge.

The SurgeFire has a range of 27m - we haven't tested that, but it seems true and is plenty for a good battle. For such a big and clunky blaster it's incredibly accurate, even over fair distance - we've all had been pleased with that.


Power is by pump-action and you can choose to use the trigger for single shots or just keep pumping the barrel for slam fire. The drum rotates automatically after each shot. It's almost impossible to get any darts stuck inside the barrel, another impressive design feature to prevent frustration.


This is a large blaster, but not massive and it's pretty light because there are no batteries or motors. The pump-action doesn't require a lot of hand and arm strength, so it's a great one for younger Nerf fans aged 8+.


This is an excellent blaster which offers beginners and experts plenty of fun and really won't disappoint anyone. At only £24.99 rrp it is excellent value and a lot of Nerf for your money. Available now from all good toy shops in store and online, including Smyths.

We're big fans of Nerf and I've several other Nerf reviews including:

The more sedentary Zombie Strike Outbreaker Bow
For those of you who like water, the Floodinator
The Nerf N-Strike Modulator Regulator with a host of different attachments and combinations
Nerf Nitro MotoFury Rapid Strike for people who want to fire cars not darts
The Nerf N-Strike Elite Accustrike RaptorStrike for people who value accuracy most
The Nerf N-Strike Elite Accustrike FalconFire for accuracy in smaller scale
And the Zombie Strike Dreadbolt Crossbow with bolts, not darts


We were sent our Nerft SurgeFire blaster for review as part of our role in the Hasbro Toy Tribe and we are encouraged to review honestly.
