With the Nerf Hammers hope of the Zombie Strike series, Hasbro has launched a revolver with which the little ones can hold the zombies in the days of the Apocalypse, in which the darkness of the world is breaking over us, and the undead is pulling over the land! Do you know the scenes from different Hollywood films – whether Western or end-time killers like Resident Evil – in which the action heroes in each hand hold a revolver and the balls on their opponents? Well, you can now also with the Nerf Hammershot in different roll games of your choice!
The Hardgesottenen know of course, also the Doublestrike. So far, however, in advance: The Nerf Hammershot makes the Doublestrike look like a baby child. And you’re not, are not you? 😉As you have guessed right now, this blaster has exceeded our expectations! Everything further in the following review.
- Compact enough to operate two blasters at the same time
- Good range
- Very reliable
- Cool zombie design
- Only five shot magazine
- Lower reach when lever is not fully tensioned
Design an and ergonomics of Hammershot
The Nerf Hammershot fits perfectly into the Zombie Strike series. Beautifully designed, she carries the notorious Z-logo on the side. Well, what for? 😉The Hammershot is designed in the zombie Strike typical colors brown, orange, dark, and light gray. Hasbro with the brown wooden handle (Nerf plastic) and gray cloth / Bandana has tried to design some end-time mood. As far as the cartoon world is concerned, we succeeded in any case as we find. One can see that Hasbro has tried to go into detail here.
On top of the blaster is the well-known tactical rail, where you can attach an ammunition holder like the Barrel Break IX-2. This is almost as long as the whole blaster. As usual, you just have to postpone your desired Nerf accessories. Behind the tactical track is a small lever – the tensioning mechanism. You have to pull darts before each shot of your green zombie before you can pull the trigger – just as you know it from Western.
The Nerf Hammershot is well balanced and fits perfectly in hand. Even if it is a one-hand blaster, it can be difficult for the very little to hold one hand in each hand. If so, you should use both hands. But do not worry, your hands will soon be so big that you can hold one in each hand!
Handling and performance
We’ve already given it away: The Hammershot is a one-hand blaster, and so you have the opportunity to throw you with two blisters simultaneously in new double action in room slaughter! This is because this Nerf Gun is not like a sled, but with a small lever and can be very well with the thumb pull back. Once the tensioning lever is pulled back, you only have to pull the trigger, and your opponent has to watch the distance!
Especially with the clamping lever, you have to be careful to pull it down to the bottom. Otherwise, the darts are not shot with sufficient voltage from the blaster. The result would be a missed shot due to the insufficient range. Speaking of range. With this small monster, you can expect a range of approx. 15/16 m with straight posture and approx. 20 m with an angled shot. Not bad for such a small thing.
Depending on how fast you can move your thumbs and index fingers, you can shoot a little more than one dart per second. And if you have a Nerf Hammershot in every hand you can even double this. Also with the accuracy, we were quite satisfied. Zombies will meet you all the time. Have a look at Halloween, if you find a few 😉The reloading is also very easy to handle. The darts simply go in front and go. Jammings should not occur during the hammer shot.
If this is not enough and expects both more realism and better performance, Blasterparts’ Tuning package can be used. This package includes a tuning pen, metal cock and metal trigger for a more realistic look. As usual, the installation is quite simple and can be fixed through the installation instructions.
But a drop of vermouth remains to us. The five darts in the magazine are unfortunately far too fast. Surely there are nerf guns with higher fire rate. But this is especially noticeable for us. So here’s a point that Hasbro may improve! An idea like we have with such a small Blaster however also not, P
Our conclusion to the Nerf Hammershot
We hope you could take the most important! Once again in a nutshell: The Nerf Hammershot allows you to become a zombie hunter # 1! Not for nothing is the Zombie Strike Hammershot so far up on the popularity scale among Nerf Gun fans.
The sister of this blaster is the Nerf Sweet Revenge – at least we believe that. The Nerf Hammershot is a lucky one-hand blaster, and we say there can be more of it (with more ammo)! J
The possibility to use a mechanical blaster with one hand only using a turret cock was a milestone and an absolute novelty in the field of darts.
