I get a lot of emails asking which replacement darts fit which Nerf guns. Truth be told, it can be a little frustrating to find the right darts, so this is my attempt at a buyer’s guide.
Micro Darts are the most common type of Nerf darts, as they work with all modern Nerf blasters (except those with a clip system).
Note: While Micro Darts will work in Dart Tag guns, they will not stick to the vests/shields. Get special Dart Tag darts, instead.
Sonic Micro Darts
Like the regular Micro Darts, Sonic Micro Darts are compatible with all modern Nerf blasters. The only difference is that they make a whizzing sound as they fly through the air.
Glow darts also work in all-stock Nerf guns (except those with a clip system).
Clip System Darts
Clip System Darts are designed for use with the Nerf Longshot CS-6, Recon CS-6, and Raider CS-35. They will still work in other Nerf guns as well, but you’d be better off buying other darts if your gun doesn’t use a clip.
Whistler Darts can be used in all Nerf guns, except for the guns that use the clip system.
Dart Tag Darts
While the Dart Tag Darts are designed with dart tag guns in mind (such as the Crossfire and Magstrike), they work in all Nerf blasters except the Maverick (tips get jammed) and those with a clip system.
