The Longstrike CS-6 is a bolt-action Nerf N-Strike blaster that is similar to the Longshot CS-6. However, the Longstrike CS-6 has the same reverse-plunger system as the Recon CS-6, therefore giving the Longstrike CS-6 the same range as the Recon CS-6. The Longstrike CS-6 comes with a 6-Dart Clip with 6 Darts (despite the picture showing only 5 Darts). It is the longest Nerf blaster, being 3 feet long.

Description - The Longstrike CS-6 is a blaster that holds 6 Streamline Darts. It is the longest Nerf blaster to date, and takes 6-Dart Clips.
Range - 7/10 - This blaster generally reaches between twenty-five and thirty feet with its barrel extension but can achieve a maximum of thirty-five feet (without the barrel extension).
Accuracy - 10/10 - This blaster is very accurate. The blaster's relatively low rate of fire means that the accuracy of each dart is that much more important.
Reliability - 8.5/10 - This blaster rarely jams. The cause is often due to a bad dart or human error. This blaster is very comfortable to hold. However sometimes it can be broken when you buy it and can only fire 15 feet max.
Rate - 7/10 - The rate of fire for this blaster is around two darts every second, if primed fast enough.
General - 8.125/10 - The Longstrike is a really good Nerf blaster. It currently sells for 30.00 USD and is common in most major retailers. Its ranges are moderate but can reach as far as the Longshot CS-6 if aimed upward, so it is still a good sniper rifle, and is worth the price.
The reception of this blaster has been mixed since it has arrived on the market. It has been praised for its near-stellar accuracy, however many have complained that the blaster's barrel extension is too big and unnecessary. The reason this was added to the blaster was to promote the usage of the blaster as a sniper's weapon, but because of the front many have dismissed the blaster.
Another site that has caused controversy is that the blaster has the same internals as the Recon CS-6, which means the blaster has a reverse plunger mechanism, which makes modding very tough. UrbanTaggers called this "harder-to-modify-and-less-power than the Longshot". This causes many people to choose other blasters with more opportunities for modification.
The blaster has received praise for its multiple inclusions of little things that help your battle. Like in the stock how you can hold two 6-Dart Clips, or the jam door. Its colour scheme also has received praise for the way it sticks out in the Nerf line with flashy colours. The fact that the blaster can take any clip has also received praise.
- Its item code is 60623.
- The stock is not detatchable only due to packaging reasons. Many have speculated that if it didn't come in the box it came with, the barrel extension would be built into the blaster.
