When it comes to Nerf guns, power and performance are among two of the most important aspects of your blaster. However, there is a third aspect of Nerf that is very important for many: personalization.
Nerf has many different lines that are stylish and boast additional features, which give users the ability to choose what they want their battle experience to look like as well as the ability to build upon their blaster’s body for improved performance. That said, most of these blaster lines have their limitations.
For those who value being able to make the most of their guns with extra features and useful attachments, we have the Nerf Modulus line of blasters, which greatly improve the customization and personalization experience.
If the Nerf Modulus series caught your eye but you’re not sure which blaster you should purchase or where to begin, here is a list of the best Nerf Modulus guns to choose from!
The 10 Best Nerf Modulus Guns
Why Is the Nerf Modulus Line Special?
Those who are relatively new to the world of Nerf may ask themselves, why is the Nerf Modulus series of blasters so special in comparison to other series?
The most important feature of the Modulus line that other lines lack is the fact that every piece within the series can be used on other blasters.
If you manage to collect all of the products within the series, you have access to well over 1000 different blaster combinations to help you meet absolutely any need you may have in battle.
While other attachments may work on various blasters throughout the series because of tactical rails or shoulder attachments, some features only work on certain Nerf blasters and are incompatible with other products.
When you have a Nerf Modulus blaster, you can guarantee that another blaster from that line can handle your Modulus attachments.
Besides the blasters and the bonus attachments that come along with your purchase, Nerf also has upgrade kits that serve to perform certain functions such as increasing accuracy or protecting you from getting hit.
Another reason why you may want to consider this series is that Nerf Modulus blasters perform well and have all of the necessary functionality features to make them effective guns in their own right.
Even without all of their extra attachments, you can expect Nerf Modulus series guns to get the job done when you are going against equally powerful opponents.
Now that you have a better idea as to why the Nerf Modulus series is one of the more popular lines, let’s take a look at some of the best blasters this series has to offer!
The Nerf Modulus Stryfe Blaster
A reimagining of one of Nerf’s other products in the N-Strike series, the Nerf Modulus Stryfe blaster adds a little style and customization to the original product by redesigning it with that Modulus flair.
Featuring the green, white, and orange color scheme that Modulus is known for, the Nerf Modulus Stryfe blaster is much more attractive than the original Stryfe blaster and is perfect for those who want an attractive looking side weapon on the battlefield.
- Motorized 6 dart blasting: shoot 6 darts in a row With rapid fire motorized blasting from the Nerf modulus stryfe toy blaster that fires darts up to 90 feet (27 meters)
- Customize with drop grip and barrel extension: This stryfe Nerf blaster comes with a drop grip and barrel extension that you can attach to the blaster to customize it for Nerf battles
- Includes 6 dart clip and 6 darts: includes a 6 dart clip and 6 official Nerf darts that are tested and approved for performance and quality, and constructed of foam with flexible, hollow tips
This is also due to the fact that the Modulus Stryfe comes with an added drop grip and barrel extension that you can attach to the gun. Keep in mind that being part of the Modulus series also means that you can upgrade your Stryfe with different gun attachments from the series as well, which can be valuable if you are looking to heavily modify your blaster.
Besides the stylistic changes, the Stryfe is largely the same. This small but mighty handgun features a six-dart clip and an acceleration trigger that makes it possible to operate with one hand, leaving the other free for another Stryfe (or your blaster of choice)!
Just load the clip into the center of the handgun, hold down the acceleration trigger, and fire at will. You can expect darts to reach targets approximately 90 feet away when your gun is running on full power.
As it is battery powered, you do run the risk of potentially facing jams every now and then, especially if you are feeding larger clip systems into the device during the course of your battle.
However, these jams shouldn’t occur frequently or impact your experience heavily. Make sure that you carefully load your clips each time and make sure to use Nerf darts that are not damaged or flimsy.
Overall, this Stryfe is a reliable weapon to have in your arsenal. If you want a handgun that can handle intense Nerf wars while making it easier to reload and fire, the Nerf Modulus Stryfe blaster is an excellent choice
The Nerf Modulus Mediator Blaster
In some instances, having a blaster with more control can provide you with a better experience as you carefully fire each shot at your enemies with intent and focus.
One great blaster that can help you achieve this experience is the Nerf Modulus Mediator blaster. The Mediator blaster is a pump-action gun with a six-dart clip and slam-fire capabilities.
Although the blaster itself is rather simple, it is effective and it has attachment points for the series packs that Modulus offers for this gun on the side.
The pump at the front of the blaster serves as a drop grip as well to keep your shots steady as you are moving through the battlefield.
The Mediator also makes the gun easy to operate by having installed the clip system into the side of the blaster, which makes reloading much simpler.
Considering its size, its range is pretty good, reaching distances of approximately 40 feet without attachments. However, many recommend having a stock attachment as it can be hard to properly use it if you decide to use anything beyond a 6-dart clip.
This can also be a helpful addition for those who intend on adding many other attachments to the system.
One other issue that some have with this piece is that it can be quite loud, which isn’t a problem with the gun but one you may need to consider if a smaller child is using it and isn’t fond of loud noises.
Besides these two considerations, the Nerf Modulus Mediator blaster is an excellent gun that could serve as both a primary weapon as well as a small blaster to have on the side in the event that you run out of ammo. Sometimes, the simplest blaster works best!
The Nerf Modulus IonFire Blaster
There’s a blaster for everyone in the Modulus series and there are some that are especially well-suited for younger individuals. One such option is the Nerf IonFire blaster.
The first thing that is going to catch your eye about the IonFire is the attractive design.
Although you are probably used to the Modulus color scheme by now, it is the slim shape of the blaster and the unique tactical rail design elements that make it stand out from the crowd.
- NOTE: This version comes in simple brown packaging
- Customize the blaster for each mission or battle
- Blaster comes with 4 darts and fires 1 dart at a time
- Accessories include barrel extension and 2 dart holders
- Includes blaster, barrel extension, removable dart holders (2), 4 darts, and instructions.
This also makes it a great lightweight blaster if you need something you can easily carry around in battle.
While the IonFire can only fire off one dart at a time, it makes every shot count, reaching targets up to 70 feet away. This blaster provides you with a unique priming mechanism.
Rather than having users feed the bullet into the barrel from the front end, the priming mechanism pulls back to reveal a small bullet opening in the middle of the blaster. Pop your bullet into the slot and fire when you are ready.
For many, single-shot blasters can be less than advantageous in battle as many struggle to keep enough ammo on them to reload after they shoot their weapon. The IonFire recognizes this issue and provides you with two attachable ammo clips that can be placed on the top and the bottom of your weapon.
Each of the ammo racks holds four darts each to help you avoid having to hold bullets in your pocket or in another area. This blaster also comes with a barrel extension for extra distance.
People who have purchased this gun have been very happy with its performance and there are no apparent performance issues that could make this gun a poor investment.
If you have a young child who wants to start their Nerf journey or if you are looking to start yourself, the Nerf Modulus IonFire is an excellent blaster to start with!
The Nerf Modulus Recon MKII Blaster
The Nerf Modulus Recon MKII blaster can certainly be a confusing piece as it does not look like it hails from the Modulus line at all which, for some, can be a plus.
The Nerf Modulus Recon MKII blaster has a more military feel to it and has a color scheme that is reminiscent of the regular N-Strike series, featuring white, orange, and dark gray aspects and capabilities that mimic other guns from this series as well. It is arguably one of the best Nerf blasters on the market.
The MKII is a small blaster that uses a 6-dart clip and pump-action firing to help you target your opponents. Unlike many other Modulus blasters, this one boasts a 90-foot range that can hit targets in both indoor and outdoor environments.
This range is supported by some of the attachments that are included with the gun, such as the stock and barrel extension. If you feel as though the 6-dart clip is not enough for your needs, this blaster can comfortably handle some of the larger clip attachments as well.
Jams seem to be one of the more frequent problems with this gun, which is something that can happen with some guns that feature clip systems as well as pump-action capabilities.
In order to prevent your gun from jamming frequently, you will need to make sure that you are properly priming your weapon. Poor priming can often lead to more frequent jams!
Weapons with clip systems are often valued more than blasters without as clip systems allow you to quickly reload without having to manually put each bullet into your blaster.
If you need something quick and controlled, the Nerf Modulus Recon MKII blaster can handle all of your blasting needs and intimidate your enemies in the process.
The Nerf Modulus Recon Battlescout Blaster
Nerf will occasionally come out with a blaster that defies everything that they typically produce and puts a twist so unique on the weapon that you can’t help but want to own it.
What is that weapon in the Modulus series? Well, that blaster is the Nerf Modulus Recon Battlescout blaster. Although we wouldn’t categorize this blaster as a shotgun, it certainly has that feel, featuring a long, tall body and pump-action capabilities that make it a force to be reckoned with in close range combat.
- Record battles and take photos
- Pump-action, indexing clip blaster
- Includes 720p HD camera
- Comes with 10 Elite darts and 10-dart indexing clip
- Includes indexing clip blaster, 10-dart indexing clip, 720p HD camera, 10 Elite darts, and instructions.
Unlike Nerf shotguns, however, the Recon Battlescout uses a unique clip system to feed bullets into the gun. The magazine is a long strip with 12 cylindrical openings in which to slide your bullets in.
The magazine easily fits into the side of your device and the blaster works through each of the bullets as you pump and fire.
Besides the unique magazine system, the Nerf Modulus Recon Battlescout blaster comes with another feature that can hardly be found anywhere else. Rather than providing you with a scope to place on top of the gun, the Recon Battlescout comes with a 720 HP camera attachment that can be placed on the top tactical rail.
The camera gives you the ability to take both pictures and videos during battle. If you want to use the camera, you are going to need to purchase a large SD card to store the footage as well as 4 AA batteries to keep it powered.
That said, the Nerf Modulus Recon Battlescout blaster is not without its faults. The major problem for many is that the range is lacking in comparison to other weapons.
This can be fixed with some modifications but this is probably due to the fact that this blaster was intended to be a close-range weapon, not a long-range one.
The second problem that seems to crop up is with the camera. People generally say that the heaviness of the camera can make the blaster somewhat difficult to use and have said that the overall quality isn’t the best.
However, this is largely dependent upon who is operating the blaster and what they are expecting to receive from the camera experience.
We still believe that the Nerf Modulus Recon Battlescout blaster is a weapon worth checking out due to its unique properties and the experience that you will get while engaging in close range combat and recording memories.
The Nerf Modulus Regulator Blaster
The Nerf Modulus Regulator blaster is one of the more serious blasters in the Modulus series and is highly recommended for those who need a powerful and effective primary weapon for Nerf wars.
Like the MKII, the Nerf Modulus Regulator blaster has a different color scheme from the regular Modulus blasters, having a primarily white and orange body with stripes of blue through the middle of the body.
However, the color scheme is not the thing you are going to be paying attention to on this blaster.
- Features SwitchFire Technology
- 3 modes: Single fire, burst fire, continuous fire
- Swivel handle to stabilize shots
- Storage stock and 2 barrel scopes
- Includes two 12 dart clips and 24 Modulus Elite darts
The Nerf Modulus Regulator blaster comes jam-packed with attachments and desirable features. Speaking to the functionality of this blaster, this is a fully automatic gun that uses 12-dart clips to get the most firepower from your weapon at once. If you are not a fan of continuous firing, you’re in luck!
This is one of the only blasters that gives you multiple firing options. You can either choose single-fire blasting, burst fire, or continuous firing.
The display will also let you know when you have run out of bullets so that you never have to worry about counting your bullets or being cornered and running out without knowing.
Besides the built-in features, the Nerf Modulus Regulator also comes with a storage stock attachment that holds another 12-dart clip, a swivel handle that helps you steady your weapon while in continuous or burst fire mode, and two different barrel scopes to help you improve your accuracy.
The only thing you are going to need to invest in is the four C batteries that are needed to power this blaster.
Put simply, the Nerf Modulus Regulator blaster is an absolute beast. If you are looking for a Nerf gun that can do it all and have no problem doing it, you should definitely choose this blaster as your next primary weapon!
The Nerf Modulus Tri-Strike Blaster
While the Modulus series consistently talks about customization, it's hard to truly understand just how customizable Modulus blasters can be.
That is, until you come face to face with the Nerf Modulus Tri-Strike blaster.
- NOTE: This version comes in simple brown packaging
- 3 ways to blast
- Elite blaster creates a base to add all of the Tri Strike components
- Combine the Missile Launcher and stock for a discrete missile blaster
- Ages 8 and up
Aptly named, the Nerf Modulus Tri-Strike blaster can be customized to fire three different types of ammo. At its basic level, the Tri-Strike blaster is a pump-action blaster that holds 10-dart clips and works great as a main or side weapon.
Then, there are the two attachments that can be added to the blaster.
- The first is a pump-action mega whistler attachment that can be placed at the end of the barrel to fire giant whistler darts at enemies.
- The second attachment is a missile launcher that can be attached to the top tactical rail and fired.
Whether you want a 3-in-1 or 2-in-1 (or even singular) experience, the Nerf Modulus Tri-Strike blaster can do it all. This is a highly-recommended blaster for those who want a customizable weapon and for those who are just starting a Nerf Modulus collection of their own.
The Nerf N-Strike Modulus ECS-10 Blaster
Another extremely powerful Nerf blaster, the Nerf N-Strike Modulus ECS-10 blaster is perfect for those who want to kick off their Modulus experience with a great primary weapon. Here is the full review of the ECS-10
The Nerf N-Strike Modulus ECS-10 blaster is a semi-automatic Nerf gun with a highly-customizable body that makes it great for those with an extensive attachment collection.
- NOTE: This version comes in simple brown packaging
- Build your own blaster with the motorized Nerf Modulus ECS-10 blaster
- Flexible blaster has more than 30 combinations
- Features targeting scope, drop grip and dual-rail barrel
- Blaster can launch the included darts at targets up to 90 feet away
Equipped with a 10-dart banana clip, users can quickly launch a barrage of bullets at their enemies at distances of up to 90-feet away.
The ECS-10 comes with many different attachments such as a drop grip, a dual-rail detachable barrel extension, a storage stock where you can keep another banana clip for convenient reloading, and a targeting scope to ensure more accurate shots.
Even without all of the attachments on the blaster, this is one of the Nerf blasters that is hard to compete with.
Although it may not be one of the most exciting in the series, it is definitely one of the better blasters to choose from. Take a look at the Nerf N-Strike Modulus ECS-10 if a high-quality blaster is on your “must-have” list!
The Nerf Modulus Longstrike CS-6 Blaster
One would think that there would be many snipers to choose from in the Nerf series but these are often one of the underproduced guns. Snipers, especially high-quality blasters, can be hard to come by in the industry.
However, this is not true of the Nerf Modulus Longstrike CS-6 blaster! The Nerf Modulus Longstrike CS-6 blaster is an attractive long-range blaster that is designed for regular use and for sniping.
- Customize the long strike cs 6 blaster for any mission or battle with the barrel extension, bipod, and scope that attach to the blaster
- This exclusive version of the long strike Nerf blaster comes with 18 Official Nerf modulus Elite darts and 3 six dart clips
- Load 1 clip in the blaster and store the other 2 clips in the shoulder stock to keep them nearby for quick reloading
Featuring the long-body you would expect from a sniper rifle, the Longstrike CS-6 comes with multiple 6-dart clips and bolt-action priming to make the process of reloading your sniper easier in the heat of battle.
Just pop your magazine into the opening at the bottom of the blaster, pull back on the bolt located on the right side of the blaster, and watch your darts fly up to approximately 75 feet.
Snipers can be difficult to use on the move so the Nerf Modulus Longstrike CS-6 blaster comes with a tripod stand, a barrel extension, and a scope to help you maintain distance and accuracy.
If you have any other attachments, such as those featured in the tri-strike series, you can bombard your enemies with a rain of bullets, mega darts, and missiles.
Long-range blasters are not for everyone but if you are constantly engaging in outdoor Nerf battles or in indoor arenas that are quite large, the Nerf Modulus Longstrike CS-6 blaster is the perfect weapon to use for taking down enemies from afar.
The Nerf N-Strike Modulus Ghost Ops Evader Blaster
A sub-series in the Modulus series (or a small line of blasters existing within the Modulus realm), the Nerf N-Strike Modulus Ghost Ops Evader blaster is a Nerf gun that will provide hours upon hours of fun, especially at night!
As its name implies, the Nerf N-Strike Modulus Ghost Ops Evader blaster is a completely transparent Nerf gun. This is exciting because you can see all the inner-workings of your blaster when you use it during the day.
If you have Nerf gun battles at night, the internal lights that line the entirety of the gun can be turned on to make your blaster glow! No matter whether this is a purchase for you or for a child, you are guaranteed to be entertained.
Moving onto the blaster itself, the Evader is a semi-automatic blaster that includes a 12-dart ammo clip that fits into the side of the blaster. All you have to do is load this clip in, hold down the acceleration trigger, and watch your darts fly up to 80 feet.
- Stay in stealth mode or light the way with the Nerf Modulus Evader blaster that has a clear housing and lights up with the press of a button
- Take the Modulus host Ops Evader toy blaster on stealth missions to avoid detection, or light it up when you’re heading into low-light battles
- This motorized, battery-operated Nerf Modulus blaster includes a 12- dart clip and 12 darts so you can shoot a dozen darts in a row before reloading (demo batteries included)
If you want your gun to be lit up at the same time, you can hold down the glow button located towards the front of the blaster. This piece also comes with a light-up barrel extension for those who want more range and fun.
Saving the best for last, the Nerf N-Strike Modulus Ghost Ops Evader blaster is perfect for nighttime wars and is both an entertaining and effective Nerf gun.
The Nerf Modulus series is one worth taking a look at as it offers limitless possibilities when it comes to customization and provides a great battle experience to boot.
That said, there are a lot of blasters in this line alone and finding the best ones for you can be a difficult task.
If you have decided that you want a Modulus blaster but aren’t sure where to begin, use the guide above to brush up on some of the best blasters on the series and find one that is the right fit for you!
