Hasbro revealed its full lineup of new Nerf guns of 2019 at Toy Fair New York 2019. Here’s a complete list of all the new Nerf guns available this year.
Last year was the biggest year in Nerf history. Nerf was the number one toy property in the United States. By far it is Hasbro’s biggest brand. Now Hasbro is hoping to build Nerf into a billion dollar brand. Nerf is reaching more and more consumers beyond its core audience. Over the past few years, the company has reached out to thousands of kids to understand what they are looking for from Nerf.
Nerf used to be a brand that was primarily popular with 7 – 15 year old boys, but the company is now looking to expand beyond its core audience. A few years back, Nerf entered the vehicle category with its Nerf Nitro line. For older consumers over the age of 14 looking for a more intense battling experience, Nerf created the Nerf Rival line.
What does Nerf have in store for us in 2019? Nerf is constantly listening to Nerf consumers to drive innovation. This year Nerf is adding innovation to each of its blaster lines and has even partnered with the biggest gaming phenomenon in Fortnite and Overwatch. At Toy Fair 2019, we got an early sneak peek at the new Nerf blasters launching in 2019. Here’s a complete list of the new Nerf Guns for 2019.
New Nerf N-Strike Elite Guns of 2019
The Elite line is the primary entry point for most Nerf fans. It is the largest segment in the Nerf line. It comes with the classic color scheme of orange and blue, although this year there’s an exception with the new Fortnite-inspired blasters. The Nerf Elite line has always been about feature-based performance – speed, distance, and capacity. This year Nerf is focusing on greater capacity at value pricing.
NERF N-STRIKE ELITE TITAN CS-50Ages 8+(Available: Fall 2019)
The Titan CS-50 is one of the biggest Nerf blasters ever. Clearly, it’s large and ready to dominate the battlefield! Featuring a 50-round drum and very cool aesthetics, it does a fantastic job of keeping pace with your rate of fire. The top trigger activates the cool spinning gatling action, while the bottom trigger drives full-auto motorized blasting performance. Get ready to dominate missions with this beast, unleashing a flurry at the opposition and sending them running for cover.
NERF ELITE FORTNITE AR-L BlasterAges 8+(Available: Spring 2019)
Inspired by the legendary ‘Scar’ gun from Fortnite, the Nerf Elite Fortnite AR-L Blaster delivers a fun blaster that is game-accurate and aesthetically-pleasing with its cartoony look. Powered by 4 AA batteries, this semi-auto rifle features flip-down sights, making it more practical and tactical for missions. It comes with a 10-dart clip and 20 Fortnite-themed darts. Considering the entire lineup of Fornite blasters this year, this one is more performance-oriented, so it’s the one we’re most excited about. Get ready to play Fortnite in real life!
NERF ELITE FORTNITE SP-L BlasterAges 8+(Available: Spring 2019)
Based on Fortnite, the Fornite SP-L blaster is a silenced pistol with a detachable barrel from Hasbro. With a game-accurate design, Fornite fans will appreciate its attention to detail from form down to color, including the infamous “SHHHHH” imprinted along the barrel. What’s cool? The suppressor is N-Strike compatible. Although it doesn’t offer insane range, you benefit from Elite blaster performance. The 3-dart internal magazine utilizes the space well and it comes with 6 darts. Load up your darts, prime, aim, and pull the trigger to fire. It’s an amazingly cool and quite blaster perfect for cosplay, and we love the tactical feel with its built-in red dot.
NERF N-STRIKE ELITE RUKKUS ICS-8Ages 8+(Available: Spring 2019)
Utilizing a proprietary magazine system, the Nerf Rukkus ICS-8 houses 8 darts. Although it looks great aesthetically, these blasters are not easily reloadable and the unique clip system hinders your line of sight. It features a top-action priming system. Interestingly, you cannot load up all 8 darts at once comfortably. You have to load up about five, then you need to shift the clip system to the other side to load the rest, which is a very clunky and cumbersome design in battle. To fire the blaster, you index up then accentuate forward. While it’s not the most comfortable blaster to fire, it is cool that it features slam-fire tech. At this price point, honestly you’re better off with an N-Strike blaster. The cross-compatibility of that line allows for use of all of your magazines and tactical gear. Further, this blaster lacks both an N-Strike and stock attachment point and doesn’t feature any tactical rails whatsoever. Although it’s an affordable budget-priced blaster, it is really difficult to recommend this one.
New Nerf Microshots Guns of 2019
Jumping on the trend of super deformed minis, Nerf is expanding its Microshots line with Fortnite and Marvel-themed miniature blasters. Nerf has shrunken some of its most iconic blasters into miniature-sized blasters. Not only are the puppy dog models adorably cute, they are completely functional single shot blasters. They are also designed to tilt so you can easily display them as a showpiece in your collection.
NERF FORTNITE MICROSHOTS AssortmentAges 8+(Available: Spring 2019)
The 2019 Fortnite Microshots line features the Llama, RL, and TS. The Fortnite Micro Llama just might be the coolest Jolt reskin ever. Load your dart, pull the handle to prime, and pull the trigger to fire. It’s that simple! Trust us, you’ve never seen the Jolt like this. Inspired by the Fortnite videogame, the llama design looks simply incredible. These miniature blasters come with exclusive turquiose and purple Fortnite-themed darts. Two darts are included; however, the Microshot only fires a single dart at a time. If you don’t have a Jolt, this one is definitely worth adding to your collection, as it packs good punch and looks really cool as a decorative showpiece.
NERF MICROSHOTS OVERWATCH Blasters Series 1/2Ages 8+(Available: Now/Spring 2019)
The Microshots Overwatch series blasters capture the distinctive style of your favorite Overwatch characters.

With its compact form factor, we love that it’s a solid performer, enabling fans to now comfortably shoot with one hand.
NERF ACCUSTRIKE MEGA BULLDOG BLASTERAges 8+(Available: Spring 2019)
The MEGA Bulldog is a psuedo-SMG blaster featuring Accustrike darts. These darts offer less distance but better accuracy. It is also compatible with regular MEGA darts. What’s cool? It offers two modes of play – a compact, folded-down version for slinging and a fully-extended version when it’s time for intense battles. We love that it features a cool transluscent pop-up sight, delivers good power, and offers the versatilty to change up your play style on the fly.
New Nerf N-Strike Modulus Guns of 2019
Kids have always wanted to customize and personalize their blasters, so Nerf created the Modulus line. The line offers fans thousands of different customizations. What’s cool? Any of the accessories will work with any of the Modulus blasters.

Show ’em who’s boss!

A serious force to be reckoned with, the Revoltinator marks the first time Nerf has incorporated lights, sound, and motorization into the Zombie line. It includes a full 18-round Zombie Strike magazine. With a semi-auto pusher and flywheel system, it delivers Elite performance. We love the aesthetics, performance, and cool lights and sounds. It’s easily one of the most exciting additions to the Zombie Strike line in a while.
NERF ZOMBIE STRIKE NAILBITERAges 8+(Available: Spring 2019)
Prepare for the zombie apocalypse with the Zombie Strike Nailbiter. This blaster features an indexing clip and 8-dart semi-auto blasting. We love that there’s no priming here — simply push and press to fire. For each trigger pull, it fires a single dart. It’s similar to a SnapFire but features cool Zombie aesthetics.
