It’s 4 possbile configurations, including the barrel extension and stock truly make it a blaster for some serious game play. With the cutting edge Elite darts give this blaster a range of between 60 feet with a straight shot, up to 75 feet with an angled shot.[easyazon_block add_to_cart=”default” align=”right” asin=”B0083TXWXC” cloaking=”default” layout=”left” localization=”default” locale=”US” nofollow=”default” new_window=”default” tag=”126p86-20″]
The Elite Retaliator is the next step up from the Recon CS-6. It’s big brother, if you will. They are comparable in design and priming methods. The Retaliator has an exclusive Elite blue and white color scheme. It is easy to reload too. Just move the priming slide back and press the clip release to remove the empty clip. Then put in a new clip, move the priming slide forward, aim, pull the trigger and shoot. It uses the Nerf Elite darts, which will work with most N-Strike blasters. The Elite darts are lighter than the Streamlines. The clip is also translucent on one side so you can see your ammo.
Another great feature for avid Nerf connoisseurs is the fact that parts are interchangeable with other blasters. Even alone, it’s like 3 blasters in 1. This blaster, with all it’s features is a must have for any Nerf arsenal.
The Retaliator does not require batteries, so it can be use anywhere. For your own sneak attacks or for defending your fort. It is geared toward children 8 an older. Nerf games are a great way to develop social skills in your kids as well. The can learn a lot from this blaster. Hand/Eye coordination is an excellent skill taught with this toy.
It comes with a 12 dart clip and 12 Elite foam darts. It has a clip point on the handle so you can attach a strap if you want to. It will hold smaller clips as well as the 12 dart clip. It’s tactical rail is compatible with most N-Strike blasters, too. You can also get the Rapid Strike Mission Kit which does not include the barrel extension, stock or assault grip. This is great if you’re looking for a value.
This is definitely a blaster that we are adding to our arsenal. I think it’s range of fire and ease of use make it a necessity. The fact that I can change it up with my other blasters, use it as a small hand blaster or attach the barrel extension for longer shots, makes it great for when I am faced with a Nerf showdown with my Nerf Warriors.
If you are looking for a blaster with great range and interchangeable parts, this is it. Change it up with accessories. Use it with other blasters. Make it smaller or larger with accuracy. The choices are pretty endless with the Nerf N-Strike Elite Retaliator.
Here i am, sitting in my chair, looking at this review and thinking: ‘why don’t i have one of these yet?’ I seriously look foward into having this little baby in my arsenal soon enougth!
