N-Strike Elite is the name of a Nerf series that was released in August 2012. It is an upgrade to N-Strike, which ran from 2003. All known blasters seem to be using a new, blue colour scheme. The Rampage and the Retaliator were released on the 1st of August, while the most impressive blaster in terms of design, the Hail-Fire (which was the flagship blaster of the Elite line), was released on the 9th of September. Other blasters made their way into the line later, such the Alpha Trooper CS-12.

History Edit

The first three blasters, the Rampage, Retaliator and Hail-Fire, were initially released on August 1st, 2012, with the Stockade in the U.K. following soon after. Eventually, many products followed up in 2013. As of 2014, many products were re-releases in newer color schemes, and some with Elite XD technology. In early 2020, Elite 2.0 was leaked, so N-Strike Elite may meet its end soon.

International Blasters Edit

There were international blasters in the lineup. All blasters had re-released with grey triggers in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, etc. They had decreased ranges that went only up to 65 feet or 15 meters, due to toy safety regulations in those areas of the world.

Trivia Edit

  • On the N-Strike Elite blasters from Fall 2016 to the present day, the packaging design was changed and no longer claimed Elite XD internals.
    • However, they still claim 90 foot ranges.
