Hasbro Nerf Alpha Strike Tiger Db2
About this deal
Finally, the trigger is sealed within the shell, rotating on a point, with the “catch” attached to it and supported by ribs in the shell. This is a weak point if you attempt to modify the blaster, for sure. Then again, if you’re modifying the blaster…you’re probably not the target audience of the Alpha Strike series. Performance
It is a re-release of the 2019 Fang QS-4. Similar to the Wolf LR-1's revised model or its re-release, the Claw features a change to the grip, as to make it more comfortable than its predecessor. Wrapping with tape at least prevents the blaster from digging into your palm, though. Last ThoughtsWith a solid shell, nice features, and the simple fact that it doesn’t feel cheap, the Hammerstorm is already a winner compared to other Alpha Strike Blasters.

Out of interest, I cut and installed a small length of CPVC (CTS 1/2″) to add some precompression (though more could have been done). That by itself raised velocities to 84fps. Final Opinion It was re-released in 2021 as the Slinger SD-1. It was re-released again in 2023 under the Elite 2.0 series as the Slash. The handle is large and fairly comfortable. Mind you, it’s very plain, but it also doesn’t do anything objectively wrong. There’s room for all your fingers, assuming you don’t have really large hands. The priming hammer placement is the same as the Hammershot, and it’s easy to pull down with your thumb for one-handed usage.
INCLUDES 4 OFFICIAL NERF ELITE DARTS: Includes 4 Official Nerf Elite foam darts that are tested and approved for performance and quality The Hammerstorm is an interesting anomaly. It’s part of the Alpha Strike line, but it’s clearly not constructed the same. The blaster is screwed together, not clipped. The handle is large and comfortable. There’s much more plastic than you’d expect. And you have eight shots in the cylinder, plus storage for eight more. As a result, it’s possibly the best blaster in the line so far.
