Nerf Stryfe best nerf blaster secondary

Best Nerf Blaster Secondary

What are you supposed to do when your main blaster is empty? You better hope and pray that you remembered to bring a secondary blaster. A good secondary blaster can be indispensable. That’s why I set out on a mission to determine the overall best Nerf blaster secondary available. A Nerf blaster secondary must be able to hold you down when your main blaster is no longer an option. It should be able to replace your primary for a set amount of time. The best Nerf blaster secondary will be able to replace your main blaster indefinitely, if the need arises. It must be all of these things and more, but it must also be somewhat compact. You don’t want to be carrying all of these huge, bulky blasters, do you? No. No, you don’t. So with all of that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the most popular options for best Nerf blaster secondary. Shall we?

  • Nerf Rough Cut

    Nerf Roughcut

    • Nerf N-Strike Elite Rough Cut 2 x 4
    • Priming Mechanism: Pump Action
    • Range: Up to 75 ft
    • Ammo: 8 Elite darts, Front-Loaded
    • Pros: The Rough Cut is a sawed-off shotgun blaster. Small and compact, it can unload 2 darts a time. Also has Slam-Fire, which will enable you to empty all 8 darts in a matter of seconds.
    • Cons: After those 8 darts, the Rough Cut will need about 10 seconds to reload. Ten seconds doesn’t sound like a lot of time, but it can be crucial in the middle of a Nerf War.

  • nerf rayven stinger

    Nerf Rayven

    • Nerf N-Strike Elite Rayven Stinger
    • Batteries: 4 AA batteries
    • Range: Up to 75 ft
    • Ammo: 12-dart Quick Reload Clip
    • Pros: Compact, bullpup SMG design. High mobility, highly maneuverable. The Rayven Stinger is the same as the regular Rayven, but without any of the gimmicky Glow in the Dark stuff.
    • Cons: Hard trigger pull, no stock attachment point, smaller stock clip than the other Rayven, potentially confusing color scheme looks like old N-Strike blasters.

  • nerf retaliator

    Nerf Retaliator

    • Nerf N-Strike Elite Retaliator
    • Priming Mechanism: Pistol Slide
    • Range: Up to 75 ft
    • Ammo: 12-dart Clip
    • Pros: The Retaliator receiver is a very capable, standalone clip-fed pistol blaster. None of the other attachments are necessary for this to function. It is the single smallest clip-fed blaster.
    • Cons: The cocking slide is inefficient, but when used as a pistol this is unavoidable as there is nowhere else to put it, accuracy drops a bit without the extended barrel.

  • nerf elite flywheel blasters nga nightly nerf news nerf stryfe no more stryfe discontinued

    Nerf Stryfe

    • Nerf N-Strike Elite Stryfe
    • Batteries: 4 AA batteries
    • Range: Up to 75 ft
    • Ammo: 6-dart Clip
    • Pros: Small, compact, reliable, easily dual-wielded, classic secondary blaster. The Nerf Stryfe is a perfect secondary, as it is able to fully replace the primary blaster and assume all of its functions.
    • Cons: It comes with a measly six dart clip, some internal safety stop locks hinder its full potential on the stock blaster,  to fix would require some quick modwork

  1. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Stryfe – but it’s best use is as a primary and if you’re going to use a flywheel as a primary then you should use a spring loaded secondary for quiet sneak attacks before unloading the power of those fast flywheels!

    Retaliator is great as a secondary, people love this blaster and it can interchange with your primary’s clip magazines – you are going to use clips on your primary, aren’t you!?! People like the Retaliator as a primary but I think it’s best use is as a secondary simply because of it’s lack of slam fire. Another secondary that has slam fire is the Strongarm, a fantastic backup while you’re reloading if 6 darts is enough to ward off the enemy until you get cover or reload your primary (in which case the slightly larger Roughcut may also be well suited).

    However, if what you’re looking for is a backup (rather than a secondary) then the Stryfe is a winner. Due to it’s compactness as a flywheel blaster you can dual-weld when necessary and simply alternate instead of reloading the clip magazine when you’re in a hurry.

  2. Hello and thanks for commenting!

    Yes, the Stryfe is great as a primary! It’s really an all-around blaster for me, primary, secondary/backup, whatever. I just love the Stryfe. I also agree about mixing up flywheel and spring blasters for primary/secondary. Good point!

    Spot on with the Retal, it makes the perfect secondary blaster. I remove all of its attachments whenever I get one and use it exclusively in pistol form every time. So maybe the perfect loadout would be a Stryfe primary and the Retal for the secondary? Sounds good to me.

    1. yeah but if you are preparing for a nerf war you should consider how you play and pick your weapons accordingly but definitly have both flywhel and spring guns

  3. Rampage and strongarm is pretty good. Both have slam fire. Also it’s helpful to also have a flywheel like I use rapid strike so I have a primary secondary and a heavy.

    1. Strongarm is definitely a capable secondary — but I would never consider the Rampage a secondary. The Rampage is one of the best springer blasters out…

  4. Hey Blee, you know @tobeydavero.nerfnstuff right?? Well…… he is my friend. So i want to ask a question, so if i i buy a nerf blaster here, will you send it here to indonesia, and also i have to pay the tax for you to send it here right??

    1. Hey! Yeah, I know of him. But, I don’t actually sell anything here. When you click on any “buy button” or a pic link or text link, it just sends you to Amazon. I love shopping there so I just refer all of my readers to Amazon to buy the products. I don’t actually sell anything myself. All that you will find here is the occasional giveaway. Thanks.

  5. The buzzbee sentinel would be a nice primary (yes I know it dose not have nerf attachments) but it dose have the ability to use nerf mags/clips and darts and the sentinel can shoot harder then say a slingfire or recon (stock form)

    1. Yes, I keep hearing about how amazing the Sentinel is… I’m going to have to break my “Nerf or Nothing” thing and get one of those Sentinels….
