Introducing the Nerf Zombie Strike Doublestrike!!

News of this little guy surfaced yesterday on other sites, so we are a little slow on the draw, but here’s our first look at the Nerf Zombie Strike Doublestrike.download_20140204_120042

At first glance this blaster looks like a pretty typical two shot derringer pistol.  the Doublestrike’s unique feature is its hammer priming mechanism like that on the Hammer Shot.  It appears as though the Doublestrike will fire one dart at a time each of its two barrels, hinting at a dart sensing mechanism similar to the Elite Roughcut/Triad.  Size wise it appears to be somewhere between the N-Strike Scout/Zombie Strike Side Strike and the Elite Triad.  From the pic and description, we here at AFoN are excited for this addition to the Zombie Strike line.  Being able to truly dual wield blasters now, prime and fire one handed is proving to be a fantastic development in Nerf’s ever growing arsenal of awesome.

NERF ZOMBIE STRIKE DOUBLESTRIKE Blaster

(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $9.99/Available: Fall 14)

When zombies are on the loose, double dart firing power is a necessity. Load two ZOMBIE STRIKE darts into the DOUBLESTRIKE blaster, pull back on the hammer mechanism, and fire to unleash both darts in a row! Blaster includes two ZOMBIE STRIKE darts. Available at most retailers nationwide and HasbroToyshop.com.

More will be said on this blaster as new info comes on the scene so stay tuned here for more info and opinions on your favorite new blasters.
