Nerf Dart Tag- Snapfire 8

Another new release from the TIA Toy Fair, the Dart Tag 'Snapfire' 8! This is an official release from Nerf, coming along with it's own press release reading:

The NERF DART TAG SNAPFIRE 8 blaster features one-hand firing, an essential element when players are on the move during competition battle. This semi-automatic blaster allows competitors to load darts into the front and then cock and fire darts as the front barrel revolves with each trigger pull. The DART TAG SNAPFIRE 8 blaster also enables players to adjust the tension level for increased speed and distance. Includes 8 Velcro tipped DART TAG darts. Available at most major toy retailers nationwide and on

This appears to be a new concept, involving the blaster priming when you pull the trigger, as in this. I'm also curious as the the addition of an adjustment for range. I have absolutely no idea why you would need to have less power, other than maybe the fact that it has less tension on the trigger resulting in a lower rate of fire... We'll have to wait and see.


  1. As long as it has good ranges,I will forgive Nerf for making an almost useless blaster. 10 shots is better than 8. It'll have to be $10-$15 for me to buy it.

  2. Agreed, the ranges hopefully won't be too bad with the Rat of Fire adjustment knob on the bottom. Just turn it all the way up and it should be fine. Also, recommended retail in the US for this blaster is around $15
