Top 10: K’NEX K-FORCE Blasters

So it is pretty clear that people love NERF guns but there are plenty more blasters out there and we are going to help you find them. As if the world of construction toys wasn’t enough for K’NEX they have now entered the world of foam dart blasters with their K-FORCE range.

Unlike NERF and BOOMco guns, all of the blasters in the K-FORCE range require some assembly and are technically known as S.T.E.A.M (science, technology, engineering, arts & math) toys. As and as such there is a real focus on customization and experimentation, and because this is K’NEX the level of customization available is almost infinite. If you don’t like the way the blaster looks, simply snap off a couple of pieces or rebuild it completely!

If you like getting your hands dirty and want to build your own blaster from scratch then K-FORCE may be perfect for you!

K’NEX K-FORCE Super Strike RotoShot Blaster

The reason we put the K-FORCE Super Strike RotoShot below the other RotoShot blaster in our list (which is incidentally ranked number 1) is because they are almost identical to each other! We marked down the Super Strike because although it has many of the same great features there are actually less pieces included. With only 201 with the Super Strike vs. the 214 of the RotoShot we felt there was less customization offered with this blaster.

All that being said, the Super Strike RotoShot is still an amazing blaster. The 5 shot rotating barrel means you still have great fire capacity without the need to reload and once you get used to the pull back firing mechanism you will be unleashing darts at a rapid rate!

The Super Strike RotoShot comes with 5 F-FORCE darts and doesn’t require any batteries to get firing so you have everything you need to shoot out of the box! If you are looking for a few more ideas when it comes to customization the why not check out K’NEX’s instructions here?
