The 5 Best Fortnite Nerf Blasters You Need to Own (2019 Edition)

From Online Craze to Store Shelves: Nerf’s Outstanding Fornite Blaster Line 

Fortnite, an open-world survival shooting game that allows players to explore vast terrains, collect various materials that will help them to be the last person alive, and battle against other skilled players, has become a cultural phenomenon that almost every child and gamer has heard about.

Fortunately enough, this digital game has transcended its online constraints and Nerf decided to design a line of blasters modeled after in-game blasters for those who are fans of both digital and real-life action.

Now, Nerfers can grab their own Fortnite gear and take to homemade battlegrounds to enact some of their favorite gameplay moments!

If you love the Fortnite game and want to learn more about what these blasters have to offer, take a look at our comprehensive guide below that covers each of the five available Fortnite blasters produced by Nerf so far.

(In this article, we are only going to cover the blasters that handle darts. We may cover other forms of blasters in the future!)

The Fortnite AR-L Nerf Elite Dart Blaster

NERF Fortnite AR-L Elite Dart Blaster

Kicking off this list is the Fortnite AR-L Nerf Elite Dart Blaster, which is a blaster modeled after one of the blasters in the video game (and modeled quite well if we do say so ourselves).

This blaster strays from the typical Nerf design, which often seeks to create a futuristic, mechanical body and instead opts for a cartoonish-looking body and texture that helps it to further resemble the way that it looks in the game.

With a boxy body and bright yellow, orange, and grey and black coloring, the Fortnite AR-L blaster truly stands out in terms of Nerf design and helps to establish itself as an authentic blaster from the game.

Beyond the stylistic choices of this gun, the Fornite AR0L blaster is among the best of the series that Nerf has spawned so far.

This blaster is large and in charge, meant for serious blasting with features like a built-in shoulder stock, motorized blasting capabilities, a banana that is able to hold up to 10 darts at a time, and two flip-up sights at the top of the blaster that help you to maintain accuracy when firing at enemies.

In addition, this blaster comes with its own Nerf Fortnite-themed darts that help to tie the experience together.

All one has to do to start using this blaster is to load the clip and pop it into the section underneath the gun, hold down the acceleration trigger, and begin firing at will. Once fired, this blaster is said to be capable of reaching ranges of up to 62 feet at each shot.

While it is rather bulky and is not recommended for smaller Nerf enthusiasts, the Fortnite AR-L Nerf Elite Dart Blaster is an excellent choice for bigger Nerf and Fortnite fans who want to make an impression on the battlefield.

The Fortnite SP-L Nerf Elite Dart Blaster

NERF Fortnite Sp-L Elite Dart Blaster

While the first item on our list is the only large blaster that you will encounter in the current Fortnite series, the rest that we cover are small but can still pack a punch and useful in battle.

The Fortnite SP-L Nerf Elite Dart Blaster is a blaster that is, again, modeled after a gun used in the game and features the same color scheme but with a more traditional Nerf build and some cartoonish aspects focused on additional design elements that have been added to the gun.

This handgun is one that is capable of holding three darts at a time that are loaded via the top, an interesting choice considering that this is not a typical loading mechanism seen featured throughout other Nerf blasters.

Along with the new loading method, the blaster also comes with a detachable barrel that is designed for long-distance blasting and that can be removed for those who need a more compact weapon that can easily be carried around in battle.

As with some other Nerf blasters, the Fortnite SP-L is primed by pulling back on the top part of the gun and then fired when the trigger is pulled.

Once fired, the darts are said to be able to reach distances of around 80 feet, a much farther distance than the previously mentioned semi-automatic blaster.

Despite being rather large with its detachable barrel, this small handgun is perfect for stealth attacks or when you find yourself trapped in a situation that requires a quick fix and it is certainly an interesting blaster with all of its additional features.

The top of the gun has a more cartoonish, smooth, boxy look that helps to mimic the game’s appearance and the bottom of the blaster has a design that imitates a piñata and adds some excitement to the mix.
