20 Best Nerf Guns

20 Best Nerf Guns In 2018

Posted in GEAR, GEAR GUIDES By

Just because you headed to college and a desk job instead of joining the Army, Navy, or Marines doesn’t mean you lack the soul of a battle-hardened warrior (although you may lack the musculature).  If you’re the type that likes to engage in inter-office warfare after hours or blow off steam with weekend romps into the woods for a little trigger-happy delight with friends, you know the value of a good Nerf weapon.
 
Single and double-shot Nerf guns are fine if you’re playing with your kids, but when you get in the trenches with experienced Nerf warriors, the kid gloves come off and you’d better not bring a foam knife to a Nerf gunfight.  You need weaponry designed to sail over cubicle walls and span the length of long office hallways, or zip through the trees in the woods behind your house, nailing your best buddy before he gets a shot off. You need a motorized Nerf gun, a high-capacity Nerf gun, and perhaps a Nerf gun that fires 5 darts per second.
 
For the elite, desk-bound fighting force, Nerf guns are a matter of survival.  Okay, that’s not true, but they are a matter of pride.  When you need a Nerf blaster that puts those jerks in IT to shame, you’ll find plenty of features to fit the bill.  Here are the 20 best Nerf guns sure to energize your cubicle warfare game.
