Nerf N-Strike Elite Strongarm

Just when we thought we knew everything the Nerf N-Strike Elite line had to offer us this year, someone goes and spots this on eBay.

It looks like a cross between the Maverick REV-6 and the Spectre REV-5. Like the Maverick, the turret holds 6 darts but the whole blaster is longer with the barrels positioned way forward like the Spectre. The tactical rail has also been moved from the priming handle to above the barrel which is good news if you actually want to use it. You'll also notice that the body of the blaster behind the turret is elongated. Could this be to house a direct plunger system? Let's hope so. As with all of the Elite line, the box boasts a 75 feet range. It'll be interesting to see what Hasbro have done with the air seal to make it spit darts that far.

Of all the Elite blasters we have seen so far, I think this one is the first to really get my juices flowing. There hasn't really been a 'good' pistol from Nerf since the Nitefinder so I'll be very excited to get these when they are released. Let's hope it come out soon.

Nerf N-Strike Elite Stockade Review

So I noticed that Argos have released their new catalogue. Being the inquisitive fellow that I am, I decided to have a look. Of course I couldn't simply thumb through the glossy pages of the catalogue, that is sooo last century. I decided instead to use the handy dandy computerised ordering doo-dad they have in store to have a look at the Nerf goodies. All the Elite series were there and were unsurprisingly advertised as "Available August 2012". All except the Stockade, this said "2 in Stock" so I bought one.

The first thing you'll notice is the big shiny 20m range sticker on the box. Anyone with a calculator will know that this equates to 65', 10 short of what we expected. Disappointing I know but it sure gives the Barricade RV-10 a swift kick in the trouser furniture.

On the back of the box, the small print states that the Stockade has a max range of 22m which is a much more pleasing 72' but as we all know, this will have been measured from an angled shot.

We get inside the box and it all becomes a bit more exciting.

The stock looks the business. It has a brilliant new style dart holder which is very easy to use and grips the darts firmly without damaging them. The stock also features an ambidextrous release switch which is really useful if you're an awkward lefty like me. Unfortunately, as many people are experiencing with the Retaliator, the stock is far too short for a big manly man like me but then, it is designed for 8 year olds. My next mission might be to lengthen it somehow.

Posted Image

As we have seen with the other Elite blasters, from the outside the Stockade looks exactly like the Barricade in every way, just with a nifty new paint job. It still takes 3 AA cells so no improvement on the voltage from Hasbro. It would seem however, the internals have had a bit of a reboot.

Starting it up with the switch on the side of the handle (again, the same as the Barricade), you'll notice immediately that you won't need earplugs to use the Stockade. It is much, much quieter than it's predecessor and even a bit quieter than the Rayven. This however, might simply be down to the fact that the Stockade runs at a lower voltage to the Rayven.

Posted Image

We open the Stockade up and again, it's a similar story to the Barricade. Subtle differences include a new style dart pusher and a larger trigger spring in the Stockade. Otherwise, nothing much to report with the trigger assembly or turret but things are a bit more interesting up at the front.

Posted Image

You'll notice that the flywheels on the Stockade are new and similar in design to the Rayven. They have a smooth surface and a larger circumference compared to the Barricades smaller, toothed flywheels. This alone will account for the improved performance. A larger circumference will mean that the surface if the flywheel is travelling at a higher speed. It also appears that the Stockade is also packing the same motors as the Rayven. This seems to be the reason for the reduction in noise from the blaster.

Posted Image

The Stockade also has what appears to be a dart tooth between the turret and the flywheels. At first I couldn't fathom what purpose this served as it didn't seem to lock in position like conventional dart teeth (not to mention the fact that they are useless on flywheel blasters). Instead, this mechanism has sprung fingers on either side of the barrel that centeralise the dart as it is fed into the flywheels. This innovative idea seems to really improve the blaster's accuracy and is another of the suttle differences that make the Stockade so much better than it's predecesor.

Better bearings, higher revs and a larger flywheel are the main reasons why this thing spits darts as far as it does. Couple this with the improved design of the Elite darts and you can see why Nerf feel the need to revamp old blasters. Getting the most out of blasters without the cost of designing and retooling is fine by me. It all helps to keep the price down. I got rid of all of my RV-10s because they are ugly, because of their terrible performance and of course, to avoid going deaf and whilst I'm not going all weak at the knees about the Stockade, it is just so much better than the Barricade. I'm not saying that it's amazing, it's still ugly, cumbersome and fiddly to reload but it is a step in the right direction. Well done Nerf.

Test firing the Stockade was a real pleasure. It purrs like a kitten as it revs up and rattles and vibration are at a minimum thanks to the new motors. The trigger pull is a little stiff and clunky but then, nothing has changed with the mechanism.

So, on to the ranges.

I tested the Stockade alongside the Barricade for the best possible direct comparison. Both blasters were using the same brand new batteries, loaded with 10 elite darts and fired PTG. The following ranges are the average distance over 10 darts.

Elite Stockade - 14.7m (48 feet)
Barricade - 8.2m (27 feet)

The results speak for themselves, the Stockade clocks nearly twice the range of the Barricade, but does that make it twice as good? To be honest, I'm not sure. I like it but I don't love it.

So, what do you think? Will you be buying one? Personally, I wouldn't bother. You'd be much better off saving your money for the Retaliator.

Nerf Vortex Pyragon

We first learnt about it in February after news of the Pyragon was leaked on the Internet. Now Hasbro have officially released information on this exciting new Vortex blaster. It is essentially a Vortex Praxis but with some major differences.

The First thing you'll notice about the Pyragon is the big shiny orange magazine. It is the first of the Vortex range to have a drum magazine. The new mag holds up to 40 XLR discs. It seems to work in a similar way to the carousel on the Hailfire in that a lever on the drum rotates a new stack of discs inside the mag. Unlike the Hailfire however, this mechanism seems to be automatic on the Pyragon.

The keen eyed among you will have also noticed that the priming grip is also different. That is because the good people at Nerf felt that it was pointless having a huge ammo capacity if you couldn't empty it quickly. Therefore the Pyragon has slamfire! The rate of fire of this thing is phenomenal and it could very easily become a formidable weapon in any Nerfers arsenal.

The Vortex Pyragon is due to be released on 8th August 2012. Although this date coincides with the release of the N-Strike Elite range, the Pyragon is not a "Vortex Elite" blaster as was originally speculated. It will simply be a new addition to the Vortex range.

At it's heart, the Pyragon is a souped up Vortex Praxis which was (in my opinion) the best blaster in the Vortex range. This can only mean that the Pyragon is going to blow the Praxis out of the water. With it's 40 disc capacity and slam fire, this thing is going to be legendary.

A demo of the Pyragon from the Nerf Elite launch party. Thanks to FoamFromAbove for this.

And so, to the Future... Nerf N-Strike Elite

Towards the end of 2011, we heard whispers that Hasbro were about to release something big. Something that would shake Nerf to it's very foundations and take blasters to a whole new level.

Now, I could waffle on for ages, telling you what I know, what I've heard, what Hasbro has told me and what I have read in the forums but I think it best if I try and keep this as coherant and factual as possible. I hope you enjoy reading.

In February 2012, Hasbro made an announcement that confirmed everybody's hopes, the new N-Strike Elite range would boast ranges of up to 75'.

Over the next few months, Hasbro would release teaser videos of the new blasters on the Nerf YouTube channel which received mixed reactions. As you will see, three of the new blasters will be based heavily on models that already exist. Some members of the community felt that this was a bit of an anti-climax, personally I think they look the nuts.

Speculation as to how the Elite range can achieve these ranges was rife until SG Nerf got his mitts on one early and confirmed what we had all hoped... These blasters use a direct plunger system similar to that of the Longshot CS-6. This, combined with the new 'Elite Dart' (slightly denser foam and a heavier tip), help to achieve the 75' stock range boasted by Nerf.

According to Hasbro, the Rampage, Retaliator and the Stockade will be released around August 1st with the Stockade's release in the UK preceding the rest of the world by quite a few months. The Hailfire won't be out until 9th September.

Having said all that, certain Toys 'R' Us stores around the US have already been selling the Rampage and Retaliator so there is now quite a bit of information on the series floating about on the net.

A brief overview of the range is as follows:


The Retaliator looks almost exactly like the N-Strike Recon CS-6. However, the Retaliator comes complete with some new accessories. The new stock is infinitely better than that of the Recon. It looks far more sturdy and aesthetically, it is a massive improvement. The fore grip is also new. Not unlike that of the Stampede ECS except it lacks the bi-pod. It looks like it will be way more comfortable than that of the Stampede. Finally, the Retaliator comes with a new 12 dart magazine. At first 12 seemed like a strange number of darts. On reflection, it is the best of both worlds since the 6 dart mag is too few and the 18 dart mag is too bulky. The new Elite magazines are also transparent on one side providing an easy way to keep an eye on your ammo levels.

The best review I have seen so far is by a lovely chap called Bobololo and can be found here.


The Rampage is (as you can plainly see) a revamped Raider CS-35. It comes with a fantastic new 25 round drum mag which will hopefully be an improvement over the Raiders 35 round drum. The most obvious difference in the drum design is that the clip is centred. As you can see from the picture below, this will make the drum a lot more practical in other blasters as it makes the clip symmetrical to the blaster. Unfortunately, the Rampage doesn't come with a shoulder stock which is a little disappointing, but only a little.

With the Elite range's direct plunger system it will certainly out perform the Raider, hopefully they have sorted out the jamming issue as well.


Very little is known about this blaster other than the obvious association with the Barricade RV-10. We know that it does come with the awesome stock we can see in the picture and we know it will be released in the UK first. Other than that, we're pretty much in the dark about it.

Nerf never really acknowledged it's existence until a few weeks ago, after images were spotted on the Toys 'R' Us UK website. Only then did they make an announcement on the Nerf Facebook page stating the date of release, and that it would not be for sale in the US for "quite some time". 


The Hailfire is the only 'unique' blaster in the Elite range. It's pretty massive and is going to be quite a formidable force on the field. It is a flywheel blaster that utilises a very innovative system to reload. The carousel underneath can hold up to eight magazines. Obviously since the Elite magazines are compatible with that of the N-Strike series, this blaster can potentially hold 8 of the 18 round magazines giving it a maximum capacity of 144 darts! Once a mag is empty, you can switch bu moving the handle on top. This causes the carousel to revolve, snapping to the next mag.

According to a few accounts, this blaster is far more wieldy than a Vulcan EBF-25 so it should be quite tasty on the battle field, providing you don't mind sitting out every other round to reload the beastie.


The Elite range is looking pretty cool. It will certainly be an improvement in terms of range. I have been informed that the Elite range will eventually succeed the N-Strike range as more older blasters receive the Elite treatment. It has been leaked so far that it is likely we will see an Elite Jolt and the Firestrike, and Elite Nitefinder at some point next year but other than that, we don't know. We have been told that there will definitely not be an Elite Longstrike, much to many people's dismay.

Personally, I'm dead excited about this release. I know it's a bit of a downer that the blasters aren't completely new, but the real point to these is that you don't have to do much modding at all to make something spectacular. For me, that takes a little bit of the fun out of it. Pretty much doubling the range and power of what is essentially a toy is what I do it for.

The truth is that we won't know the true modding potential of these until they are officially released and lots of people have messed about with the internals. We will see all sorts of crazy stuff happening, some ideas will work, others won't. That's what it's all about.

It's like being back in 2003 with the release of the original N-Strike range. Everything is new and uncertain. Hope, speculation and rumor, it's like being a kid again.

Light it Up

The Light it Up series was released in March 2012 and introduced two new blasters featuring 'Firefly Tech'.

Firefly Tech is the name given to the new Nerf technology which features Glow in the Dark ammunition. This effect is achieved through specialised magazines and ammo. In essence, the magazines contain ultraviolet LEDs that charge the special glow-in-the-dark ammo so that they glow when fired. There isn't really anything special about the blasters themselves other than an evocative colour scheme. These magazines are actually compatible with any of the other Clip System/Vortex range so you can use the technology with your other blasters

This effect has not been seen since the Nerf Firefly REV-8 which was released in 2003 and is believed to be the origin of the name 'Firefly Tech'. I'm glad to say that Nerf has greatly improved the technology with this new range, the Firefly REV-8 was a bit lacklustre.

There are currently two blasters in the Light it Up series:

Rayven CS-18

The Rayven CS-18 is an electronic semi automatic blaster. The darts are propelled by an electronic flywheel system, much like that of the Barricade RV-10. Unlike the barricade, there is no 'On/Off' switch. This has been replaced with a second trigger underneath the main that is pulled with the middle finger. The Rayven comes with the special 18 dart Firefly Tech magazine but is compatible with all other Nerf clips including the 18 and 35 round drums. As with many of the electronic blasters, the Rayven is full of electronic safety locks preventing the blaster from firing unless everything is done correctly. The blaster will not fire until the magazine is inserted and the jam door is closed. Only then will the flywheels spin when the second trigger is pressed. The main trigger can only be pulled, firing a dart, when the flywheels are spinning.

The Rayven CS-18 is an interesting design for a Nerf blaster. The style is what is known as a 'bullpup' design. This means that the magazine and firing system are located behind the handle allowing for a compact blaster with a relatively long barrel. This of course doesn't really mean a great deal in terms of performance for a flywheel blaster. The barrel isn't a tight fit with the dart so a long barrel is relatively useless but it does look cooler than Christmas.

The Rayven CS-18 is about my favourite blaster ever. It's powerful, light, compact and of course accepts clips. It is also very easy to mod. You can achieve ranges of around 100 feet simply by increasing the voltage and you don't even need to open the shell. The colour scheme is pretty cool and makes a nice change from the yellow and orange of the N-Strike series. The trigger pull is a little 'clunky' and jarring but there are things you can do to change that. All in all, well done Hasbro.


The Lumitron, despite it's super swanky name, is simply a repainted Vortex Praxis. It functions in exactly the same way and the performance is almost identical. The only real difference between the two is that the Lumitron comes with a Firefly Tech 10 disc magazine. The Lumitron uses special glow-in-the-dark XLR discs which I might add, look awesome when fired at night. Much better than the darts because they are bigger and move slower. The Lumitron does not come with a stock although, all current N-strike stocks are compatible. This isn't really any real loss. The Praxis' stock was awful.

Currently I don't own a Lumitron and I don't have any inclination to buy one. There isn't really anything different here although the colour scheme is better than that of the Praxis. I like it, but not that much.

Nerf Spectre REV-5

The Spectre REV-5 is a 5 shot, semi auto revolver, similar to the Maverick REV-6. The Spectre comes with a collapsible stock and a barrel extension that is designed to look like a silencer. It is a similar size to the Maverick, although, as the turret only holds 5 darts, the blaster is a little thinner and a bit lighter. The interesting thing about the Spectre is that unlike the Maverick, the barrel rotates when the blaster is primed rather when the trigger is pulled. This not only makes the trigger pull easier, but it also makes the air seal between the plunger tube and the turret much better, giving the Spectre much better ranges. The Spectre REV-5 was released as an ASDA exclusive in Autumn 2011 and sold out very quickly. It was never officially released in the UK by Hasbro which is why they are so hard to come by. Although ASDA still advertise them on their website, they have been unable to source any stock since Christmas 2011.

I like the Spectre. It fixes all of the problems that the Maverick had and also looks much cooler. The stock is pointless since it is too flimsy to be of any real benefit. It also only folds away to the right side of the blaster which means if you're a lefty like me, it gets in the way of the priming handle. The barrel extension is really nice and looks freakin' awesome on some of the other blasters.

Alas, I'm afraid I missed the boat on the Spectre REV-5 and it is still the only N-Strike blaster that I don't own. I need one for my collection but I just can't get one. They very rarely come up on eBay. When they do they go for around £30-40 which in my mind is ridiculous when they only cost £13 from ASDA only 7 months ago. My friend has one which he likes to gloat about. Maybe soon I will steal it.

Dart Tag

Nerf Dart Tag has been going since 2003 but hasn't really brought us anything particularly interesting since the Magstrike AS-10 in 2004, and that was never released in the UK anyway.

The start of 2012 heralded the release of Hasbro's newest additions to the Dart Tag line. Although the new Dart Tag blasters were first released in the US in 2011, most of the blasters were redesigned to improve performance shortly after they went on sale. The redesigned blasters sported blue triggers instead of the original orange ones and have superior internals making the blasters achieve greater ranges.

Along with the new blasters also came new tagger darts. The new ones have a blue tip with white 'velcro' whereas the old ones were orange and black. Altogether the new taggers are far superior to their predecessors as they are (in my opinion) 'stickier' and more durable.

Sharp Shot

The Nerf Sharp Shot is a single shot, semi auto blaster akin to the Scout IX-3. It features a priming slide like that of the Scout and has storage for 3 darts under the barrel. One really great feature of the Sharp Shot is that it has a bevel on the opening of the barrel. This makes it far easier to load than any of its N-Strike alternatives and so has a surprisingly high rate of fire for a single shot blaster.

I like this blaster, even more than the N-Strike Nitefinder. The priming slide makes it easier to get darts on target faster and the bevelled barrel is a great design. I really don't like the belt clip it come with. It gets in the way when you don't need it and it's fiddly to use when you do. In terms of range, this blaster in it's stock form has no equal. Mine hit up to 45' straight out of the box.

Speedload 6


The Speedload 6 is a 6 shot, semi automatic blaster. Often compared to the Maverick REV-6 due to it's size and capacity, the two couldn't be more different. The Speedload 6 is one of the first dart blasters to have an integrated magazine holding up to 6 tagger darts. This magazine is built into the front of the blaster and the darts are loaded from the top-left hand side. The blaster is primed by a slide above the handle, much like the Sharp Shot. This blaster also supports 'Slam Firing' although I am yet to find any mention of this capability anywhere on the box. This blaster can hit 30-35' in it's stock form.

This blaster is massive. Huge, unwieldy, cumbersome and, well... massive. Far too big to be considered a 'pistol' in anybodies mind but still too small to be anything else. Unless you're built like He-Man, you're not going to win any wars with this beastie. Having said that, It looks awesome.

Quick 16

The Quick 16 is a semi automatic blaster with an integrated 16 dart magazine. it is in essence, a remodelled N-Strike Raider CS-35. The Quick 16 is primed in the same way as the Raider as it shares the same type of priming handle. It is also capable of slam fire. Unfortunately, the Quick 16 is incompatible with any of the N-Strike accessories due to the fact that it doesn't have any tactical rails. It is also incompatible with N-Strike stocks, which is a shame.

Alas, the Quick 16 is not available in the UK for some reason. I managed to get my hands on a couple and I can say that they are very, very good. Stock ranges are awful but they can be modded fairly easily. The 16 round mag gives these blasters a really useful capacity without being to cumbersome, although it is a bit of a faff to load.


The Speedswarm is the first in the Dart Tag range of electronic blasters and it can hold up to 10 darts in the front turret. The blaster cannot function without batteries so it is purely electronic. To fire, you simply switch it on (on/off switch located on top of the blaster), and pull the trigger. It really is that simple. With the trigger pressed the blaster will fire a dart and then rotate the turret automatically. Holding the trigger down will make the blaster fire in a fully automatic fashion. By pulling the trigger intermittently, the blaster can be used in a semi auto mode.

These things are great for dual wielding. It is a similar size and capacity to the N-Strike Barricade RV-10 but has the advantage of not being a fly wheel blaster. Without the constant drone of the Barricade's flywheels, you can be a little stealthier with this. Not that stealth really counts much in a Nerf war.


The Swarmfire is the Mac Daddy of the Nerf Dart Tag range. It features a 20 dart rotating turret and a detachable shoulder stock. The Swarmfire operates in exactly the same way as the Speedswarm on account of the fact that the internals are almost identical. It is a lot longer than it's little cousin making it more of an 'assault rifle' than anything else. Also the 6 'C' cell batteries make it quite a bit heavier.

I love the way that the stock is detached with the little button on the butt. Without it, the blaster isn't quite a one handed weapon and so the stock only really comes off for storage. With the stock on, it is a very comfy and usable blaster. It is quite easily the best primary for Dart Tag games. The combination of ammo capacity and rate of fire make it a winner in my book. The rotating turret setup makes it much easier than most to reload on the fly but it's a shame the plunger tube wasn't a tiny bit bigger as the stock ranges aren't great.

Gear Up and Whiteout Series

Both of these series are limited edition re-paints of existing blasters. I am sad to say that neither series is available in the UK although some people (myself included) have gone to great lengths to get them. They occasionally crop up on eBay, but usually sell for silly money.


The Whiteout series is my favourite and is exclusive to Walmart in the US. The blasters feature an 'Arctic' theme colour scheme consisting of white, grey, black and orange. The Deploy CS-6, Longstrike CS-6, Maverick REV-6 and Nitefinder EX-3 are all available in the Whiteout series. It is widely believed that the Whiteout series of blasters are considerably more powerful than their counterparts. Whether this is due to the blasters being made of a stronger plastic than the originals, or whether the internals are actually engineered for better performance is unknown.

The Gear Up series was primarily released in order to promote the Vortex line prior to it's release. The blasters feature an orange and black colour scheme and the darts feature black stripes. The Gear Up series also came packaged with a single XLR disc in an effort to build interest in the Vortex series. It didn't really work as the Vortex blasters had already been sold in many stores across the US. Blasters in the Gear Up range include the Barricade RV-10, Maverick REV-6, Raider CS-35 and Recon CS-6.

Nerf Vortex

It's been a busy year for Nerf, with many new releases across pretty much all of their ranges. We'll start off with the Vortex Range.

The new Vortex line was released in 2011 and differs from the N-Strike line in that the blasters fire their own unique ammo. The 'XLR Disc' is basically a small Frisbee made of a soft, rigid plastic surrounded by a ring of foam. These disks are capable of greater distances than the traditional dart due to their shape and the fact that they spin, stabilising their flight. Although, the discs are capable of great distance, they travel slowly and suffer from terrible accuracy due to their design.

There are currently 5 blasters in the Vortex line.


The Proton is the entry level blaster of the Vortex range. Single shot with a spring loaded disc tray on the back. Pull the lever with your thumb and the tray pops out. Insert a disc and push the tray closed and the blaster is primed and ready to fire. Obviously this blaster suffers from a terrible rate of fire but that has to be expected. Otherwise this is a really natty blaster. I quite like it as a side arm, although I seldom use it.

Lorddraconical created a clip mod for the proton which greatly increases the ROF.


Next is the Vigilon. This blaster is semi-automatic with a built in 5 disc magazine. Pull the lever with your thumb and the cool spring loaded door on the mag slides down. Slam the door closed, Pull back the slide above the handle and fire. From using this blaster, it has been discovered that you can actually increase the ammo capacity by one disc. Simply insert a disc, prime the blaster and then insert 5 more discs.

This blaster is massive. Almost too big to be classed as a pistol but lacks the ammo capacity to be anything else. That being said, the way you reload this blaster wins it for me.


The Praxis is the first of the vortex blasters that uses a removable 'clip'. Semi-automatic again, this blaster feels a lot like the N-Strike Alpha Trooper but it is not capable of slam fire. The magazines can hold up to 10 discs and coupled with the range, this can be quite a formidable blaster. Plus it looks the business. The stock is removable but suffers from the same problems as that of the N-Strike Recon. It is really flimsy and I find it a little too short.


The Nitron the top of the Vortex range. This blaster is electronic and uses a fly wheel system to fire the discs. Although the Nitron is fully automatic, the ROF is lower than that of the Praxis. The batteries (4x AAA) are located in the stock, just behind the handle. This position helps keep the weight of the blaster fairly well balanced and although the stock is not removable, it is fairly comfortable. The Nitron also features a 20 disc magazine giving it the highest capacity of the Vortex line.

Generally I'm not really a fan of the Vortex range. Their range is very impressive but the speed at which the discs move makes them quite easy to avoid. Unless you fire the discs perfectly level they tend to peel off to the right (because of the way they spin) and they are also very susceptible to moisture. As soon as they get damp your range and accuracy go out the window which isn't good for outdoor wars.

Because the Vortex blasters (with the exception of the Nitron) are powered by a torsion spring, it is difficult to modify them. Several people have managed to relocate the springs to increase power, but I'm not sure that it is really worth the effort.

The Vortex range does look amazing and I really like the colour scheme, but I won't be going crazy for them. Among other things, I don't really want to have to stock yet another type of ammo.

Welcome Back Everyone.

Hello everyone.

My name is UKNerfWar and I have been given the great honour of collaborating on this blog. I hope to bring it up to date and breathe some new life into it. I hope I will do the blog justice. Burntcustard is still around but is currently on hiatus from Nerf. Hopefully he’ll chime in from time to time and keep us updated on his activities. We’ll look forward to hearing from him soon.

On to Nerf. There have been some very interesting things happening recently, far too much to include it all in one post. Over the next few days I shall be posting like crazy in an effort to bring everyone up to speed with what is going on.

Watch this space.
