What happens when two cultural phenomena collide? Well, we’re sure a lot could happen but with this mash up in particular – Amazing Fortnite themed NERF blasters! First teaming up in 2019, Hasbro and Fortnite have combined forces to take online gaming the blaster field. You can now make your Fortnite battles a reality with these very fine Fortnite NERF blasters.
Rather than traipsing through dozens of reviews we have pulled together a list of the best NERF Fortnite blasters on the market to date. If you are looking special or just want to add another blaster to your arsenal, take a look.
NERF Fortnite AR-L Blaster
10 dart clip
Includes 20 NERF Elite Fortnite darts
1x Tactical rail
2x Flip up sights
Requires 4 AA batteries
The NERF Fortnite AR-L is a semi-automatic, motorized blaster modelled on the legendary skinned Fortnite AR. If the canary yellow color style doesn’t quite do it for you there are a few choices available (our favorite being the Durrr-Burger).
Aside from our foaming excitement that we can now recreate some of our favorite Fortnite moments in real life the AR-L is a tidy NERFing machine. Hasbro hasn’t just phoned it in for a quick cash grab here, the AR-L has all of the features that you have come to love from other ranges.
The generous inclusion of 20 darts combined with a 10 dart clip means that not only can you stay on the field longer but you’ll also have enough darts to fill an entire clip for easy reloading. Trust us, you are going to need those extra darts as the inbuilt motor means you are going to be popping off shots as fast as you can pull the trigger. To make sure you aren’t firing to blind, the AR-L features two flip up sites and a long tactical rail located on top of the blaster; so even if the sights don’t help you can always pop on an additional scope for added accuracy. If in your NERFing furry one of your darts does get jammed, there is a jam door located on the barrel so you can quickly unclog and get back to firing.
The Fortnite AR-L is a great entry into the NERF universe and proves that just because it’s a collab doesn’t mean it has to suck. If you do run out of Fortnite darts, don’t worry, the AR-L fires standard Elite darts as well (phew).
NERF Fortnite TS-R Blaster
Internal 4 dart clip
Includes 8 NERF MEGA Fortnite darts
Includes 3 Lama targets
The NERF Fortnite TS-R is mottled on the in-game Tactical shotgun and features a pump-action priming mechanism and heaps of dart storage. Making use of an internal 4 dart clip and 4 dart storage located in the blaster stock you can blaze on the blasting field without a care in the world.
The TS-R is primed by sliding back the pump-action handle located at the bottom of the blaster. Once you have slid the mechanism back it will also expose the internal dart chamber on the underside making reloading a breeze. As you’ve got space for 4 darts in the integrated stock you’ll be able to carry at least on reload with you before each encounter. As a manual blaster you will need to pull the trigger each time you prime but if that feels like a bit too much work, hold down the trigger and with each pump you’ll shoot off a round.
The TS-R also features a little non-functioning display monitor on the right hand side which doesn’t actually do anything but does add a bit of Fortnite flair – so if you were hoping to see your enemies vital signs displayed in real time, we are sorry to disappoint. As a little bonus, this version of the TS-R comes with 3 different sized Lama targets – just in case you wanted to practice your aim or start some friendly NERF competitions.
NERF Fortnite SR Blaster
Includes detachable scope
Includes 8 Fortnite Elite darts
1x Tactical Rail
The Fortnite SR is a chunky monkey, based on the in-game Scope Revolver this single shot magnum has a lot going for it. Although it may look like a revolver, it uses smart air restrictor technology to let you front load 4 darts and fire them in sequence. If you don’t have enough time (or darts) for a full reload don’t worry, the blaster will still fire even if one dart is loaded up.
Thanks to the inclusion of a hammer priming mechanism, the SR can actually be fired one handed (if you are dexterous enough). With the blaster in hand, use your thumb to slide back the hammer located behind the scope and then pick your shot. The included sight on-top will help keep your enemies in your sights before your inevitable victory. If you find the scope a little too much, it’s easy to pop off and free up the tactical rail to use for any of your other accessories or attachments.
We really like the SR, the brash and bold style make it feel like you are packing some serious firepower and with 4 darts in the chamber you have enough darts to win any NERF battle. A definite must for any fan of NERF guns and Fortnite.
NERF Fortnite SP-R blaster
3 dart integrated clip
Includes barrel extension
Includes 6 Fortnite NERF darts
Includes 3 Llama targets
The NERF Fortnite SP-R is styled on the in-game suppressed pistol with a rare skin (there is also a legendary variant is blue isn’t your style). The SP is a lovely little blaster and a perfect addition to any arsenal (Fortnite themed or not). The styling is fantastic and there is even a little “Shhhh” embossed on the side, just in case people didn’t know you were using a suppressed pistol.
The SP-R includes a detachable barrel barrel extension silencer which doesn’t give you any noise reduction but does add to the character of the blaster for added role-play. The actual guts are nice and simple, slide back the priming mechanism on top of the blaster, drop 3 darts into the integrated clip and you are ready to blast!
If you are like us and like to take an extra moment to line up your shot the SP has an integrated relex style sight located at the back of the blaster – perfect for squaring the perfect shot. There are no tactical rails on the SP but with the inclusion of themed barrel extension we aren’t complaining much. This is a relatively cheap way to enjoy NERF Fortnite without having to worry about batteries or mechanisms to go wrong.
NERF Fortnite BASR-L Blaster
1x Tactical rail
6 dart clip
Includes 12 NERF Elite Fortnite darts
Based on the Legendary skinned bolt action sniper rifle from the game the Fortnite BASR-L comes in two flavours (colors). If you are after the original legendary skin you need to get the BASR-L but there is also the blue BASR-R which also comes with 3 mini bush targets for practice.
Looking beyond the skins, the Fortnite BASR-L is a bit of a rarity itself. We don’t often see many NERF snipers come through the door and when we do, we tend to get a little excited. The BASR-L is a simple piece of kit, combining an ambi-dexertorus bolt action priming mechanism with a 6 dart removal clip. It may not win any innovation awards but it’s certainly an easy introduction to NERF snipers and the inclusion of 12 darts means you will have plenty of ammo to practice your targeting skills. If you decided to go for the R variant, you’ll even have three bush mobs to target, so no excuse for not being a pro-blaster in short order.
The BASR-R only comes with one tactical rail, located on top of the blaster, and you will need to remove the included scope before you start throwing on your own customizations and attachments. The scope doesn’t offer any magnification so if you are looking for greater precision it may be worth slotting on your own preferred scope or red dot site (you will be messing with the Fortnite styling though). As a clip based blaster, reloading is nice and easy (if you have some more clips to spare) and the clip release is right in front of the trigger so an absolute breeze to drop and clip and slot a new one in.
In all, a solid NERF sniper but as they are so few and far between it would have been great to see some new tricks or treats. If you’re a fan of Fortnite style, this is a must for any sniper fanatic.
NERF Fortnite SMG-E Blaster
6 dart clip
Includes 6 Elite darts
Requires 4 AA batteries
Top marks for styling! The Fortnite SMG-E is an epic rarity motorized blaster which reminds us a lot of the NERF Elite Stryfe. The design of this blaster is top notch – capturing Fortnite’s tactical SMG perfectly, even down the spikes mounted on the muzzle.
Combining a six dart clip with motorized flywheel internals, there isn’t much that could go wrong but there certainly isn’t a whole lot to love either. Throw in the fact that the SMG-E doesn’t include any tactical rails and only comes with 6 Elite darts and we can’t help but feel let down.
In terms of performance, the SMG-E is a semi-automatic blaster so you will need to pull the trigger for each shot. Make sure that you are holding down the acceleration button (located just under the trigger) to get the flywheel spinning and be careful you don’t hit the clip release which is directly in front! For any pesky dart jams, the jam door is located on top so you can flip open the chamber and scoop out any bent darts.
This isn’t a bad blaster (certainly not) but when comparing it to the likes of the AR-L it doesn’t seem like you are getting much bang for your buck! Although it does look pretty sweet…O.K maybe now we see the appeal.
NERF Fortnite GL Blaster
NERF Missile Launcher
6 missile rotating drum
1x Tactical rail
Includes 6 Fortnite Missiles
Sometimes you just have to say “fudge it”, cast away your hyper-accurate NERF blaster and bring out the big guns. If you want to strike fear into your enemies hearts (with a little Fortnite flair) then check out the Fortnite GL. There will be no escaping you as you march straight down the middle of the blasting field unloading missile after missile at your hapless opponents.
All fun and games aside, as the GL is a NERF missile blaster there are no springs or fancy mechanisms in place to fling your darts over long distances. Instead you are going to have to rely on your own horsepower to pump the priming mechanism and force a flow of air into the chamber; so if you are feeling lazy, your missiles aren’t going to go far!
There are two openings located on the front of the drum housing which allow you to load up your missiles and with each pump the drum will rotate – so no need to reload after each shot. For extra customization there is a slanted tactical rail on top of the baster which won’t be much help if you want to attach a scope but a blaster shield may work?
Overall, the Fortnite GL is a fun missile blaster which looks fantastic but fails to deliver much of a punch when compared to some other blasters in the range. If you are looking for the wow factor or just want to have some fun it’s worth checking out. If you want some accuracy and high rate of fire, keep on reading!
NERF Fortnite HC-E blaster
Includes 3 MEGA Fortnite Darts
There isn’t a lot going on with the Fortnite HC but that isn’t really the end of the world for this single-shot pistol blaster. Modelled on the Fortnite Hand Cannon, the HC is a no frills front loaded blaster with a simple slide priming mechanism located at the top.
As a nod to the original Hand Cannon the HC fires chunkier MEGA darts as opposed to the slimier Elite darts which certainly beefs adds a nice punch to your shots. You won’t be able to lay down much suppressing fire but if you are a trick shot and maybe fancy strapping two of these slick killers on you’ll still be a menace on the field.
NERF pistols are always a funny one, they don’t offer the firepower of some of the more advanced blasters but sometimes you just want something simple and the HC is simple in spades. It looks cool, fires chunky darts and doesn’t require a manual to work out how to shoot.
NERF Fortnite RL Blaster
NERF Missile launcher
Includes 2 NERF Fortnite missiles
The Fortnite RI is definitely wild and wacky, out of all blasters in the range, the RL wins hands down when it comes to style. This oversized rocket launcher features 2 oversized integrated sites, stock and a rather fearsome motif at the front for added fear factor.
There isn’t much to the RL. It’s a pump action, single-shot missile launcher which is loaded from the front. Mount your missile, swing into position and send a missle your enemies way – that’s it. Like the Fortnite GL, the RL relies on your own strength to launch missiles so it’s going to be tough going if you want to keep a rapid fire rate up.
Like a lot of NERF missile blasters the RL is much more about having fun and role-playing than being a serious competitive blaster. It looks fantastic and if you have room for one more blaster in the cupboard, why not?
NERF Fortnite DP-E blasters
Barrel extension point
Includes 12 Fortnite Darts
We won’t spend too much time talking about the Fortnite DP-E but if someone presents us with dual-wielding pistols we are certainly going to write something about them!
The DP-E is a set of two Fortnite pistols which are essentially reskinned HCs. Unlike the HCs however, the DP-E blaster fires Elite darts and has done away with the reflex style sight on top. The priming mechanism is the same and the integrated 3 dart clip is still there but as an added bonus both blasters in the back include a barrel extension point located on the muzzle.
Double trouble but not much more than what you could get if you picked up two HC-Es which we would actually recommend as the inclusion of MEGA capabilities certainly makes them more fun.
