EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Customize your Nerf blasters with the Nerf N-Strike Modulus Barrelstrike, which functions as both a blaster on its own or a barrel accessory. As a blaster, it's 14 inches long with the ability to fire four Nerf Elite darts one at a time. Just pull down on the handle until you hear it click, and then press the trigger to fire. The package doesn't say how far the darts are supposed to fly, but when we tested it in a long hallway, our darts flew about 30 feet. 

But with the push of a button, the back of the blaster's stock pops up and over to create a barrel accessory that can be attached to other Nerf Modulus blasters. If you don't have other Nerf Modulus blasters, the Barrelstrike still has blasting capabilities in the barrel mode, offering a slightly more compact blaster without detracting from the Barrelstrike's firepower. To convert the Barrelstrike back into regular blaster mode, push forward on the lever and move the stock back down.

Is It Fun?

The Nerf Modulus line is all about giving kids options when it comes to their Nerf blaster battles, and with this blaster, kids get three options for how to use it, depending on what kind of blaster look they're going for or what kind of blaster experience they want. 

On its own, it's a lightweight blaster that gets pretty good distance, and kids can keep it long or easily make it short, depending on what kind of blaster they need. But it also makes a nice upgrade to other Nerf Modulus blasters, adding even more firepower to another blaster and just letting Nerf fans create a pretty sweet and totally customized blaster.

Who It’s For
The Nerf N-Strike Modulus Barrelstrike is for ages 8 and up. It's part of the Nerf N-Strike Modulus system, which means that kids who have other Modulus blasters and accessories will really like being able to add the Barrelstrike into their arsenal of mix-and-match blaster pieces. But it's also a pretty solid blaster on its own, which will be fun for any Nerf fan.
What To Be Aware Of

In blaster mode, the Barrelstrike can be used with Nerf Tactical Rail accessories, which are sold separately.

This is compatible with other Nerf Modulus blasters, which are sold separately.
