If you’re looking for an innovative, fun way to defeat the zombie hordes, then the Nerf Zombie Strike Ghoulgrinder Blaster is a perfect choice. Not only does it provide hours of excitement and zombie-slaying satisfaction, but it also looks awesome. In this review, we take a closer look at what makes this blaster stand out and why it is worth considering for your next zombie-fighting adventure.

What is the Nerf Zombie Strike Ghoulgrinder Blaster?

In the autumn of 2020, the Zombie Strike series unleashed the Ghoulgrinder, a one-of-a-kind dart blaster that works on bolt-action. This spring-powered blaster is equipped with a wheel turret. The blaster is perfect for loading up ten darts and unleashing them in one impressive circle of destruction.

The blaster resembles an angle grinder, with a rotating turret acting as its equivalent of a grinding wheel – as the name implies. Equipped with barrel extensions and detachable shoulder stocks, the Ghoulgrinder boasts a single tactical rail running along its top, perfect for customizing your gun to your specifications. This blaster can hold up to five darts snugly perched on the top of it.

Key Features

  • The blaster features a bolt action blasting.
  • The Zombie Strike Ghoulgrinder features a removable shoulder stock.
  • This gun also has a barrel attachment point to spruce up your setup with a barrel extension.
  • The blaster features five dart storage.
  • It comes with a 10-dart-capacity wheel and ten Zombie Strike Darts.

To get inside the Ghoulgrinder, you’ll need to unscrew a few screws and totally disassemble it if you want the full picture.

Its power plant is similar to other Elite-level blasters, like the Strongarm and Surgefire, and the plunger is pushed back by a plastic sled. A lot of the frame and parts are designed to snap together, so you won’t be able to upgrade this blaster. But, of course, it’s made for pretend play – and being an Elite-level blaster is just a bonus.
