Nerf Guns are fun to use and play. However, these plastic-made toys can turn lethal if you don’t pay proper attention while playing. Any negligence can lead to severe injuries to the person standing in front of you. It is necessary to take all Necessary Precautions before going out for a game.
How to use a Nerf gun properly is the most common question that many people ask. There is no specific answer for how to use it. However, you need to understand and follow some habits and skills to ensure Maximum Protection while playing with your Nerf blaster.
Before learning the Pro-Tips of using Nerf Gun properly, you must understand the different types of Nerf Blasters available in the market. There are two types of Nerf guns available on the market – short-range and long-range models.
Short-range blasters include pistols, shotguns, submachine guns, and machine pistols. They offer a shooting range from 40 ft and up to 80 ft. These short-range blasters are equally dangerous as the long-range as they can cause serious harm to anyone on their way.
The Long-range guns include rifles, missile launchers, and cannons that have ranges of over 100 feet. Rifle-type models are the most popular Nerf guns available as they are considered reliable for both: short-range skirmishing and long-distance shooting.
Unlike Short-Range guns that are only Compatible with Darts, the long-range blasters are compatible with both types of ammo clips, which you can either place directly at the bottom of the gun or on a rotating barrel.
Blasters with a magazine at the bottom are usually holstered much better as they can hold more ammo. However, they have a lower rate of fire and need to reload them after every shot. Perhaps, they are reliable with each shot.
Blasters with a rotating barrel can carry several magazines, making them easier to work within long-distance shooting. However, they usually don’t hold that many darts and, you can end up spending more time switching clips after every shot.
Not everyone has the same skill level, which means some people may find certain Nerf blasters easier to use than others. If you are having trouble with your aim, it can be useful to practice shooting at a close-range target (like bullet-ridden cardboard) until you feel like you have mastered the technique.

Learn how to use the sights on your Nerf gun properly – place both front and rear sights in line with each other. This technique will help you aim better and shoot more accurately. Besides, you must understand the Shooting Capabilities of your Blaster to perform better.
When aiming, remember to use the aiming device on the gun before firing. Depending on your rifle model, there can be a targeting scope or iron sight that will make it easier for you to aim at your target from a greater distance.
Be sure to practice in a large open space when you first start using your Nerf blasters. Running around in tight quarters will slow you down and make it harder for you to hit moving targets. This technique will help you to take down moving targets easily.
