Which Nerf Sniper Rifle is Better? Longshot vs Longstrike

With 2 major sniper rifles on the market, it may be difficult to choose between one or the other. We all have our own preferences, which will surely play as a factor in which blaster you decide to get. To make things easier, here is a breakdown of those factors you may be keen for.
longshot vs longstrike

Looks

Hands down, the Longstrike wins this battle. Whether you are walking down the toy isle, or getting ready for a Nerf battle, if you catch a glimpse of one of these on a shelf or in a friends hands, this blaster will demand your attention. Its sleek design and sheer length are more than enough to turn heads.

Performance

Out of the box the two perform just about the same. But take a look whats inside the two and you’ll see a vast difference in potential.
longshot internals
Now, this probably isn’t important to those that do not mod Nerf guns, but if you are a modder, you’ll see that the Longstrike has internals just like the Recon, which happens to limit the potential of range it can get when modified. The Longshot on the other hand has a direct plunger design, which has been known to achieve nearly 100ft in distance when modified.




Price

Now, because the Longstrike is new for 2010, it comes with a “new” price tag. The Longshot is cheaper, but in a couple months, or come next year, they should be about the same price.

Conclusion

If all you care about is looks, then hands down the Longstrike wins. However, if you are into modding, then the Longshot is definitely the way to go.

They both have their advantages, so again, all it boils down to is preference.

For the sake of the article though, one of them needs to be declared a winner, so given the above characteristics I believe the Longshot wins because it is cheaper and has more potential for range.

You however, may think otherwise.

– when modded shoots up to 50ft barrel on 100 ft barrel off
– with stand

I was going to go for longshot right out of the box but mod the hell out of it with some of the attachments for longstrike like the barrel and the 35 round drum from the raider. reason behind this is longshot can hold two drums, while longstrike is stuck using the clips in its standard stock. So unmodded already the longshot has it beat. This especially applies to me because as a left handed shooter the drum doesn’t get in my way at all.

Following comments above, I did a straw poll with the guys I regualrly shoot at; Longshot or Longstrike. All have access to both. Result Longstrike 5, Longshot 0. To be fair, none of us are interested in modding them, as this seems to make a big difference to the way people think. Take it out of the box, and use it, that’s my motto, so the Elite range due later this year interests me greatly.

I think the longshot is waaaay better than the longstrike.I have both guns and longshot shoots farther.my longstrike only shoots about 9 to 10feet.on the other hand longshot shoots about 30feet.in looks the longstrike always wins it looks like a real sniper riffle. I am going to use my longshot and kick butt in a nerf war on my b day.this is why I prefer longshot over longstrike !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree with the longshot being the best, but you can modify your longstrike to shoot 75 ft longer and you do not have to take your gun apart

Reply
NerfModder - March 2, 2012

not to beat a dead horse…but there are longstrike mod kits available from http://www.orangemodworks.com that make the longstrike more of a weapon than a foam dart gun. You can easily achieve 100+ feet with both the mods…nothing effective for the longshot yet…though there are mods available from the same site for the recon…if the internals are exact same…you should just be able to buy the recon mods and fit them to the longshot. worth a go maybe…

Reply
scooterperv - February 29, 2012

I have both Longshot and Longstrike. The barrel extension is useless on both, but comparing the “short” blasters, the Longstrike is vastly superior. It fires further, has greater accuracy, has a smoother and more reliable dart loading action, a longer stock so is more comfortable, carries more spare clips, doesn’t jam, has two top rails and is superior in every regard apart from looks. I got a long shot just so I could compare the two and I’ll be selling it again ASAP. BTW, if you want to snipe forget both of them and get a Vortex Praxis, as it wastes both of them on range!

Sup. I used to own the longstrike but took it back to the shop and exchanged it for a recon but GREAT MISTAKE the recon is the most crappest gun ever so the longstrike rocks coz its gotta sight what you can look through in so many different ways and that is freakin cool so why the hell did i take it back? It looks a lot more like a sniper than the longshot coz longshot is a great gun for the nerf battlefield coz it has a scope and a bipod but the longstrike iz better.

I think the longshot is way better than the longst rike the longstrike i have got . the longstrike stock sucks because when you put the clips in they fall out 10 seconds later…… the longshot scope is amazing it has a front gun it shoots VERY far and the clip in the stock doesnt fall out straight away

the longshot is 20 in toys r us

Cole2999 - December 3, 2011

Longshot. Longshot, longshot, LONG-FREAKING-SHOT!!!!!!!!!!
Youre a complete idiot to think otherwise! It’s size is perfect for integration, it has a reverse plunger, it is amazingly accurate at 110 feet, even of you don’t mod it it still doesn’t suck (though it is the best gun to mod).
THE ONLY BAD PART OF THE LONGSHOT?
Hasbro is an IDIOT and discontinued it since:
– longstrike is cheaper to make (since internals are crap)
– longstrike sold a lot more than longshot (only coz it’s brand new!!)
It is now $200 AT CHEAPEST for a set price. The only way is to get them from somewhere other than America, find one at a local thrift store, or at the back of a department store, Craigslist, or EBay.
So, Hasbro (along with every person who thinks longstrike is better) CAN DIE!!!!!!

For you longstrike owners, if your looking for an easy mod, take out the spring and just stretch it out. you’d be surprised how much of a change it can make. and for better accuracy and fixing that tumbling dart problem, stick the end of a hot glue gun in that small hole in the tip of your dart and just fill the whole thing with hot glue. They shoot great and fly farther. Im not much of a modder but this was easy and worked great.

overall the longshot easily gets 120 ft plus than my longstrike which gets 35 ft

it is because the longshot has a plunger system while the longstrike,recon,raiderand alpha trooper all have revers plunger systems which get way way little range and longshot gets loads of range

longshot looks better and ive put a shotgun front grip so i dont pull the cock to prime its great!

Longstrike and the Longshot are both beautiful. The Lonstrike looks way better, and after modification would be way better that an out of the box Longshot. Also, the scope off the recon is a great improvement over the Longshot’s scope. However the scope off the Longstrike is perfect for sniping.

I have the longstrike and it’s awsome. I want the longshot but I cant find it anywhere for under 40.

hey everyone. I just got the longstrike yesterday and it is the worst gun ever. It has a good design but it doesnt even shoot across my hallway. But if you take of the barrel extenshon it shoots barely even farther and the bullet goes a totally nother direction. if you put your eye in the barrel with the extenshon on you will see that it is too wide and too long. I would highly and strongly recommend the long shot even though i dont have it is problobly better. my friend cousiin has it and it is definetly better.

All of you who said the longstrike is not good. Well your wrong because its flip-up sight is better than the longshot, it has more ammo and its light. I may don’t have the longstrike yet but I know its number one

The Longstrike is a excellent gun with one small issue, The extension barrel is too wide. To answer your question sfurry, measure the diameter the barrel. Then measure the diameter of the Recon extension barrel. Go to a hardware store and find a pvc pipe the inner diameter of the Recon. Cut the pvc to size and place it down the Longstrike extension barrel. Use electrical tape to seal it. (Don’t hot glue it until your sure it works.) A few other things about the long strike is that it jams less than the Longshot. Also it’s more portable than the Longshot. The Longshot is good for modding, and for stationary combat.

i have a lot of nerf guns my personal favourite is my recon. but out of the longshot and longstrike the longstrike is way better for a war because it is portable and it is easier to use the primer/cocking mechanism/ whatever its called

What I llike about the longshot is that is has a scope, a bipod a 2 in 1 blaster and two dart clips back and front. What I hate about the longshot is that it doesn’t have a scope, its not a 2 in 1 blaster, it doesn’t have a bipod and way two long.

megapwner34 - November 23, 2010

LONGSHOT ALL THE WAY!! mostly because your actually getting a good deal. u get 2 clips,3 guns in 1 because u get a pistol,a regular rifle,and when u put them together u get sniper and scope. i read that walmart is selling longshots for $15 which for them its half off since the reg. price is $30. longstrike sucks I personally dont like the design …you know when i saw the longstrike and then the Strike Rifle from “The Conduit” they look the same

I had the longshot, but sold it at a garage sale thinking I wouldn’t use it anymore. I get to college and buy a Recon, and miss the Longshot everyday. IMHO, the 2nd best Nerf gun ever second only to the ArrowStorm.

I have the longshot and i’m about to get the vulcan today. The longstrike I am considering…however it may be pointless considering they aren’t much different aside from the visual traits. Nonetheless it looks pretty dope (longstrike)

Hi!I live in France and I like the longstrike but he has got one dart clip.The longshot has got two dart clips,a scope and it’s a blaster 2 in 1.I think:the longshot is better

for those with the barrel problems is that u just remove the internal part of the barrel and replace it with a brass pipe which increases accuracy and range

the longshot and the longstrike both suck with extended barrel, but i have noticed that if you were to take off the removable barrel at the end like it shows on the box for both of them, they both actually shoot much better and farther. for me, i prefer the longstrike, mainly because if you take out the air restrictor, it shoots way farther than the longshot.

maybe you could slip a barrel-shaped something down the barrel of the longstrike to make the diameter of the barrel smaller?

Derrock - June 8, 2010

I own the Nerk longstrike and since the day a bought it I havent seen it shoot farther than 9 or ten feet accurately. Ive also had the darts literally tumble through the air at their targets. I think the longstrike sucks, and I cant figure out how it could be defective.

Meh, I’m not a modder, so I personally prefer the longstrike. Its internals may be the same as the recon, but other than that, the two are unrelated. The longstrike is easier to move around.

also, they should have a poll here, so we can vote to declare the REAL winner.

There is nothing wrong with the longstrike and is nothing like the recon.

The Longstrike sucks! I haven’t used the Longshot, but the Longstrike sucks! Unmodified, my Recon shoots farther and straighter. One major flaw I noticed on the Longstrike is the diameter of the barrel is too big. The dart bounces around in there before it leaves the gun and sometimes somersaults towards your target. I love the look of the gun, but does anyone have mod suggestions to turn it into the weapon it’s meant to be??
