4. Design

This blaster has a remarkable design, reflecting the concept of creating blasters with spare parts. One can notice a variety of pieces, such as chain links, wrenches, sheet metal, and snap ring pliers, that are ingeniously integrated into the casing. To complete its attractive look, the plunger rod has been decorated with notches that make it stand out and give the blaster an extra touch of personality. Finally, the fake wrap around the handle provides the perfect finishing touch to its aesthetics.

5. Comfortable and durable handle

The blaster has a compact handle that is open, spacious and comfortable – fitting nicely into most hands. While it’s far from perfect, it does still live up to the theme and is perfectly serviceable.

Cons of the blaster

  • Accuracy is an essential concern when using the blaster. Rear sights are all you have when shooting with a single-barrel gun. Although the front sight is present, you can’t make it out. But if you have a knack for hip firing, you have nothing to worry about.
  • The gun can shoot quite far but it’s difficult to aim when you’re shooting three at a time.

Internals and Performance

The Alternator is the perfect example of a spring-powered pistol, but the rotating design creates a slight gap between the plunger tube and the dart barrels. Although this may appear to impair its performance, it actually has a purpose; it requires the trigger and handles to be fitted in order to allow basic functioning.

All of the screws must be removed in order to separate the two halves of the rotating barrel assembly, which slides on a set of push-in metal rivets. One of the screws can be accessed through a well-placed hole in the shell. Once separated, you’ll discover that the barrels are self-contained units that slot together effortlessly.

Final Thoughts

The Zombie Strike Alternator stands out as an unusual and entertaining pistol. Boasting single shots of great power, and the ability to do bursts as well, it’s certainly got the capacity for enjoyable gameplay. On top of that, the quirky design and attention to detail give it an alluring look that I just can’t resist. Definitely worth a look for those who want to try something new and different!
