The best Prime Day deals on Nerf blasters
- Originally released as a tie-in with the release of Halo: Infinite, the Nerf Halo MA40 blaster is discounted to $45.88 (normally $55.99). The Nerf version of the MA40 is a pretty faithful adaptation of the in-game firearm, and it even includes a code to unlock exclusive cosmetic items in Infinite. It also comes with 10 clip-fed darts and is powered by four C-cell batteries.
The Nerf N-Strike Mega Mastodon Blaster is the single largest blaster in the Nerf arsenal , one that has a 24-round drum loaded with plus-sized Mega Whistler darts and runs on six D-cell batteries. Normally $99.99, you can bring home the Mastadon today for $62.49 .
- The Nerf N-Strike Elite Strongarm is currently on sale for $8.99 instead of its usual price of $15.99. It may not look the part, but the pop-out cylinder gives this blaster a bit of an old-west vibe, and I dare you not to spin the barrel after reloading. The Strongarm is slide operated, and the six-round capacity should be more than enough to be anyone’s huckleberry.
