As a reminder for the last thing said, a creature with both Double Strike and Trample, should it kill a blocker after the "First Strike" portion of the damage, will also hit the opponent in the normal damage step.
Note that if the blocking creature dies after first strike damage, the creature with double strike will not deal damage to anything in the normal combat damage step.
I received these in a package from Amazon last week. I have been looking forward to both of these blasters since I first came across the toy fair previews of them. I’ve had a plan for that Zombie Strike Slingfire since day one. Its an ambitious prop build that I’ll cover at a later date. For now, lets focus on the Doublestrike.
If you read my last post, then you know how fond I am of the Nerf Zombie Strike Hammershot, with its one hand priming mechanism and crisp trigger pull. I was expecting the Doublestrike to be, essentially, a scaled down, two shot version of the Hammershot. This is, sadly, not the case. Due to its design there are three short comings to the blaster.
