Blaster is the commonly accepted term within the wider Nerf hobby and beyond for any toy projectile launcher. Blasters fire a wide variety of projectiles, such as Ballistic Balls or Elite Darts, using a wide variety of mechanisms, such as flywheels or compressed air. Blasters are distinct from firearms, or guns, due to their non-lethal nature and function as toys.
