To go back to the Sledgefire, it can fire 3 darts at once with it’s shell feature. Each “shell” appears to hold 3 shots in it, which is a better convenience over the Buzz Bee Double Shot, a blaster in which each shell only held one shot. Also looking at the line break near the middle Z logo, you can see a line break in the product. Many people are also assuming that this will prime and load in a similar way to the Double Shot.

Performance wise, 3 shots at time is pretty cool in Nerf games. Most Nerf games that I play in take either 2 or 3 shots to eliminate a player, so this could have some potential as a nice secondary. Aesthetics wise, The colors on it aren’t doing it for me. I feel like the blue could have been replaced with a darker color to compliment the “zombie” in the Zombiestrike line. The price, $27.99, is a bit too high for me though. Unless I’m getting a great performing blaster for that price or better, I don’t see myself getting this because of that price.

  1. I hope they sell shell refill packs, without them I find the gun useless. I agree with you on the colors though. The blue makes it seems like it’s new, not beat down like the hammershot.

    1. That definitely makes sense. But perhaps they’ll just test the water with these first, to see how well received they are, before they start trying to make more.

  4. If they give the Sledgefire a three-round selective fire like the Triad or Barrel Break, it could fill the role of both carbing and close-quarters combat device, making it a good choice for HvZ

  5. I also think that you could potentially make a larger cartridge to fit a MEGA Dart and have a “Hand Cannon” sort of weapon, to deal with individual zombies, possibly as a stealth weapon.

    1. Interesting idea, but even in those situations, wouldn’t a normal clip system blaster be better? That way, you wouldn’t have to buy a new blaster and new ammo.

      1. I don’t really know if clip system would technically be better, as many people tend to try to force the clips into the chamber under pressure, like during a rush, and then they not only get tagged, but they can break their blaster as well.

      1. Not really, you could just cut a big enough hole to fit the MEGA Dart into the shell, and then plug the leftover hole with Green Stuff to prevent air leaks.

  6. interesting I thought for sure the zombiestrike shotgun was going to be a reshelled roughtcut, I do wish for zombiestrike to have a true boult action stripper clip style sniper rifle, and a beat down ak47 style assault rifle to be the equivalent to the stampede ecs/rapidstrike cs-18, on a related note crossbow anyone? and a bayonet tactical rail accessory, and new specialized tactical gear, I also smell a zombiestrike jolt coming as well

    1. I don’t know if NERF will want to do that, because their current use of the series and what their marketing has been seems to point this towards being a kind of stand-alone mini series, like the Light It Up series, which released only one unique blaster, the Rayven, and repainted an existing blaster, the Praxis, into a new version, the Lumitron. This is parallel with the Zombiestrike line, as it only has one unique blaster, the Sledgefire, while the Hammershot is a mainly a redeco of the already announced NERF Rebelle Wildshot.
