Thanks for stopping by! I had some more time, so I took the Nerf N-Strike Retaliator and Rampage out for some additional testing. I wanted to look at performance depending on using original streamlines vs. Elite, original Nerf N-strike blasters vs. Elite, and so on. I decided to just make one gigantic video, but have no fear! The link to each pertinent section follows. And yeah, I kept the Retaliator barrel on for its firing. I’ll do another vid without it soon, but in the meantime:
Handy dandy timing break down for the video-
Rampage w/Elite darts and 12 round magazine – 1:33
Rampage w/original streamlines and 12 round mag – 2:09
Nerf Raider w/12 round mag and original streamlines – 2:51
There’s still more to do, such as checking the ranges and accuracy without the barrel (personally, I like the looks so I kept it on) and a general opinion on the Elite line. But, that’s another blog post. As for today, enjoy seeing what the blasters shoot like 🙂
Now that the video is done, I’ll be updating this post in a few minutes with pictures as well. Stay tuned!
Neat lil’ shot for the night- Rampage with a Lightning Storm stock 🙂
Who likes box art? I’ve got box art 🙂 And some other shots too.
As you can see, the head of the Elite dart is a little bigger, has a smaller hole, and a (for lack of a better term) more streamlined form.

I know some of you saw this; it’s a preview of things to come: new tac vest, Nitefinder Elite version, annnnd… a smaller blaster inside that pocket…?
Well hey! That looks like a Jolt to me. Anyone else thinking that? Elite Jolt, cause the original wasn’t nuts enough.
Don’t fret! N-Strike old skool and N-Strike Elite is all interchangeable. I’ll make a video of this to showcase but old does work with new and vice versa. The Elite ammo flies fantastically out of both types of blasters though.
Nerf Kid for Rampage. He looks srs.
Yup! Straight-mags sold separately, and with ammo to boot. If the individually sold drum wasn’t your thing, this will hopefully make your day.
