It may be hard to believe, but the first NERF blaster was invented in 1989 – or basically the year I started Kindergarten. I remember them being a big deal when they first came out and being a toy that all the kids wanted to play with.
And I don’t think much has changed – most children are still playing with NERF toys today. What has changed is how many cool options you have to pick from, and one of the best lines of NERF guns comes from the Minecraft NERF Weapons line! These video game-based NERF weapons look awesome and sure to bring hours of fun as a gift or toy.
We also wanted to give you a complete list of the Best Minecraft Nerf Weapons, so you know what options are available! This should help you pick that perfect NERF Minecraft blaster for your Minecraft fun, and hopefully they have as much fun playing with them as I did back in those Kindergarten days!

Minecraft NERF Weapons Reviewed
1.) NERF Minecraft Sabrewing Motorized Bow – The top NERF Minecraft Weapon on our list is the NERF Minecraft Sabrewing Motorized Bow. This bow has a lot of amazing features to it, plus a look that is going to impress your young Minecraft fan.
This bow has an 8-dart clip and is motorized – letting you launch all eight darts with accuracy and speed! The Minecraft Bow does come with 8 Nerf Elite Darts, which are much better than the ones you can buy in the discount bucket, but those do work with these too! And if your kids are anything like mine, some extra darts are going to be needed!
I should also note that the clip is really easy to load – and it seamlessly slides into the top of the bow to create a really neat look. The firing mechanism is really easy too. You pull back on the bow string and there is an orange button you hit on the handle that is going to launch the darts. Overall, it is very simple to use and should be a blast for any child.
Really the only downside to this NERF Bow is it does require 4 AA batteries to operate…and maybe hearing a kid complain once they get hit by a dart or two. Overall, well-designed and awesome looking bow just had to be number 1 on the list of the Best NERF Minecraft Weapons.
2.) NERF Minecraft Stormlander Dart-Blasting Hammer – Now, there is some debate as to if the NERF Minecraft Hammer should be number 2 or 3 on the list of the Best Minecraft NERF Weapons, but honestly both choices are a lot of fun, and I think this hammer has a very unique design that gives it the edge at number two.
This Minecraft Stormlander NERF Hammer looks just like it belongs in the video game and comes in at a weight of about 1-pound. The hammer allows you to load three darts at a time and will launch one dart at a time. It is pretty simple – you basically load the 3-darts, pull back the priming hammer that is located at the bottom of the hammer, and you hit the orange button on the handle to launch a dart.
The darts are launched with some really good accuracy and power – and it is very simple for children to figure out how to operate the hammer. Since, this hammer can launch three darts, NERF was kind enough to include three of the elite darts in the package as well!
Overall, this is an awesome addition to the NERF family!
3.) NERF Minecraft Pillager’s Crossbow – The NERF Minecraft Pillager’s Crossbow was the option that could have been number 2 on the list of the best Minecraft NERF Weapons, and we wouldn’t be angry at all if you decided that you like this option better than the NERF Minecraft Hammer!
Very similarly to the Hammer, the NERF Crossbow is built with a terrific Minecraft looking design that looks like it belongs in the Video Game. It also can be loaded with three darts, launches one dart at a time, and has a primer handle you pull back and a button you push to launch the darts. It also comes with three Elite Nerf Darts just like the Hammer as well.
So, it really comes down to do you like the design of the crossbow or the hammer better, and which weapon do you think your child would like to play with more. The crossbow also shoots very accurately and with some force – so there are a ton of similarities with the hammer!
If you want some more details about the crossbow, we encourage you to read the Minecraft NERF Crossbow review we did where you can also learn about some of the personal experiences we had playing with this toy as well!
4.) NERF MicroShots Minecraft Ender Dragon Mini Blaster – To be perfectly honest with you, numbers four, five, and six on this list of the best NERF Minecraft weapons are basically interchangeable – it really comes down to the design that you like the best! For us, we decided to put the NERF MicroShots Minecraft Ender Dragon Mini Blaster in the number four spot.
The NERF Minecraft Ender Dragon Mini Blaster takes its design inspiration from the Minecraft Dragon Mob – and the purple/black/white/orange color scheme with the dragon head and wing details are the reason we rank this in the number 4 slot.
It loads one dart at a time, and you shoot it by pulling down the primer on the bottom of the gun and pulling the trigger to launch the dart. Even though it is small in size, the dart launches really well. We have a couple of NERF targets that you can shoot at – and these blasters are really good for a competition like that!
If your child loves Ender Dragons – we would also STRONGLY recommend this Minecraft Ender Dragon toy (read our review on it by clicking the link).
5.) NERF MicroShots Minecraft Ghast Mini Blaster – Coming in at number 5 is the NERF MicroShots Minecraft Ghast Mini Blaster! This NERF blaster should be really popular with children that like Ghasts from Minecraft – and my son is one of those children. We even have a Fireball Ghast Toy that he loves to play with that you can read about by clicking on that review link!
I think the design of this Ghast Mini Blaster is really slick. It has the big, white and square Ghast head as the spot you load the dart into. The handle looks like the Ghast tentacles – and the color scheme is perfect for the Ghast theme.
Just like the Ender Dragon version listed above, this is also a one-shot blaster. You also pull down the primer switch, aim, and pull the trigger to launch a dart! Ours came with two white NERF elite darts that match the color scheme perfectly.
6.) NERF MicroShots Minecraft Guardian Mini Blaster – The last entry on our list of the best NERF Minecraft Weapons List is the NERF MicroShots Minecraft Guardian Mini Blaster! This weapon gets its look from the Minecraft Guardian Mob, which is why the color scheme and look is so familiar!
This is also a one-shot blaster that requires you to load a dart, pull down the primer handle, and plug the trigger to launch the dart. The handle on this one is pretty thick, but children shouldn’t have any issue holding, shooting, and priming the NERF Mini Blaster and getting it ready to launch darts!
All of the Mini Blasters in the Minecraft collection are very affordable, and most people are going to enjoy buying two of them if not all three of them. This gives you a one-shot weapon to take into a NERF Battle or is perfect for target practice or dueling with a sibling!
