NERF V2: We're tactic00l and we don't care.
OP by Rammaster. I will have Pascall update this thread. Right now I only have the 4 main Nerf lines. I hope to expand this thread to the other Dart blaster makers such as Buzzbee and Airzone and have a section for Humans Vs. Zombies. For now, enjoy the thread!
NERF is a Hasbro brand which sell foam-based products. The commonly believed acronym for it is "Non-Expanding Recreational Foam"Starting out with their Nerf Foam Ball, they are primarily known today as a Foam Weaponry manufacturer. Currently, they're a few Nerf Blaster lines.
The N-Strike line was released in 2003 and is arguably the most popular line of Nerf Blasters. These blasters aren't just your regular old dart blasters. They now utilize magazines, tactic00l rails and sights.
CLIP SYSTEM (CS) BLASTERS
The CS line of Blasters all utilize Nerf's "clips" and the number after designates the number of darts that the included clip will hold. These clips all use Streamlines which are arguably the shittiest darts in existence, imo. All the Blasters under this line utilizes clips so each blaster can use different clips interchangeably.
Revolver (REV) Blasters
The REV line of N-Strike has a revolving and rotating barrel that needs to be cocked every time to fire. They resemble real life revolvers albeit more ridiculous and colorful. Revolver blaster come primarily with the classic suction Nerf darts but can also fire Whistler, Tagger Micro darts and sometimes, although ill-advised, streamlines.

External Single Fire (EX) Blasters
External single fire blasters fire one single dart that you muzzle load. The EX blasters have their priming handle on the outside and is usually a loop that is need to be pulled. The number at the end usually tells how much the blaster can hold in its built in dart storage compartments.
Internal (IX) Single Fire Blasters
Similar to the EX blasters, these blasters usually only fire single darts, except for the Barrelbreak that can fire 2 simultaneously. The priming mechanism is usually inside and is primed by a cocking slide.
Air System (AS) Blasters
The Air System Blasters utilizes an air tank where air is pumped and compressed. When released, the blasters fire at an amazing rate. Your fapping hand will be tested.
Others: Electronic Revolver blasters (RV), Electronic Belt Fed (EBF) Blasters and the Big Bad Bow
These blasters do not have any other blasters that use the same systems.
The N-Strike line has spawned more than half a dozen accessories that range from attachments for blaster to be placed on the tactical rails on the blasters to tactic00l vests.
Some of the N-Strike Blasters got re-released in a different color. As of right now, there are the Clear Series (Exclusive at Target), Sonic Series A.K.A. Piss Green Series (Exclusive at TRU), Gear Up Series and Whiteout Series (Exclusive at Walmart). The only cool looking ones, imo are the Gear Up and Whiteout Series.
The Dart Tag line of blasters that is specifically created by the Dart Tag sport, sponsored by Nerf. Most of these blasters fire tagger micros that can stick to velcro material.
2011 New Dart Tag Line
In 2011, Nerf released a new line of Dart Tag line that incorporated a few new things like built-in magazines and slamfire. It also introduced a new dart type, Tagger Whistlers.
The N-Force line is Nerf's foam melee weapon lines.
The Vortex line is a new line of blasters from Nerf. Instead of using darts, they use XLR (Xtra Long Range) Discs. The new blasters line easily achieve 50+ft. ranges but has the disadvantages of the ammo type being discs.
