nerf gun accesoriesIf there is one thing that makes most Nerf gun models stand out from other toy guns for kids, apart from the fact that they are completely safe, is the fact that most Nerf guns can be easily “modified” with various official accessories. This versatility allows Nerf gun owners to personalize their guns and not only make them cooler, but also more efficient during the various Nerf War games they will be involved.

Accessories for Nerf guns can be acquired in two ways: you can buy them separately, or they come packaged with certain guns. The Nerf guns that are part of the N-Strike series, for example, come with “tactical rails” on various parts of their body. Those rails allow pretty much all N-Strike accessories, whether they are bought separately or they came packaged with another Nerf gun model, to be attached on those guns, in order to create unique Nerf gun mods. But which accessories are the best for your Nerf gun? Let’s find out!


Pistol like Nerf gun models are mainly used as sidearms, so adding too many accessories on them, may actually make them harder to conceal or carry around. If you want to make your pistol more functional and cooler looking, you can add laser sight or a flashlight mod under its barrel. You don’t need fancy scopes or stocks for a pistol!

Assault Nerf guns

Most players will be using one of the many assault type Nerf gun models, which is why they are the most customizable. So, which accessories do you need to make your gun the best Nerf gun on the battlefield? We,, first of all you will need a good stock, since this will help you steady your aim and increase your accuracy. For maximum functionality you can choose a folding stock, since this will allow you to make your gun more maneuverable in enclosed spaces. Another thing that an assault Nerf gun should have is a scope. Don’t pick one of the bigger ones that come with Sniper rifle like Nerf guns though, as this will make your gun heavier and harder to handle. If you want to increase your ammo capacity, you can also use larger magazine models. A drum magazine will give you a significant edge over your competition.

All those accessories will help you increase your accuracy.
