Overview of Nerf Zombie Strike Doublestrike

Nerf Zombie Strike Doublestrike

Released in the autumn of 2014, the Doublestrike was the ultimate Nerf blaster from the Zombie Strike series. This surprisingly diminutive hammer-style single-shot blaster features an ingeniously crafted air restrictor system, allowing you to easily fire a dart from any barrel! This blaster looks like a revolver. However, the cylinder is purely decorative and does not rotate. Its sleek design is further elevated by the addition of a tactical rail between its iron sight and hammer, lending an air of sophistication.

It is said that the upper barrel of the blaster is more exact than the lower one, and the accuracy can fluctuate depending on the barrel in use.

The blaster features two barrels

Key Features

  • The Doublestrike comes with 2 Zombie Strike darts.
  • It features hammer-action
  • It launches two darts consecutively with remarkable speed.
  • The blaster is equipped with two barrels.

Design and Ergonomics

The Doublestrike is an eye-catching blaster boasting a double-barrel muzzle, vibrant colors, and awesome Zombie Strike branding. This striking item shines even brighter with its imitation handle wrap, “cut out” side chamber and Nerf detailing stamped in. Unbelievable! Again, Nerf has delivered a tastefully designed blaster that is sure to impress!

The Doublestrike rightfully earns the distinguished title of “pocket pistol” for its sleek design allows for no more than two fingers to comfortably fit around the handle. For adults with regular-sized hands, their pinky will be rather cramped up against the bottom of the handle, creating a quite unpleasant sensation. Yet, the genuine challenge lies in the minute hammer pull, which, sadly, is exceptionally uncomfortable to manipulate. Additionally, the safety slide is a bit difficult to operate, especially if you have large hands.

Pros and Cons of the Nerf Zombie Strike Doublestrike Blaster

Benefits of the Nerf Zombie Strike Doublestrike

  • The tiny blaster is so compact it can easily fit into the tightest of pockets.
  • Firing the Nerf Zombie Strike Doublestrike Blaster is quite easy.
  • It uses a hammer shot-style priming system.

Drawbacks of the Nerf Zombie Strike Doublestrike

  • Due to the diminutive size of the tactical rail, attaching most accessories is impossible.
  • The strength of the spring in the attachment is quite remarkable; however, when you prime the blaster, a puff of air is released that can propel the dart forwards – or even out of the barrel. If it’s primed too far down, it creates a significant drag on the dart.
  • The hammer pull is very small and is very uncomfortable to use.
  • Only two darts can be launched from the Doublestrike blaster.

Final Thoughts

The Doublestrike is a swanky, masterfully-crafted blaster adding class to the Zombie Strike lineup. It performs reasonably, if a bit erratically, and makes a great backup weapon. However, its one-handed hammer-priming action, unfortunately, has a major snag – the air gets pushed back into the chamber, and you need a second hand to keep the darts from popping out, taking away the core advantage of the blaster.
