Recommended for age 8+ & hailed as the fastest firing NERF Blaster ever, with a range of over 20 metres, the children couldn't wait to have their own NERF turf war in the garden. Sides were taken, & battle commenced.
Simply load the foam darts into the clear plastic clip, then attach the clip to the NERF blaster. Hold the acceleration trigger to fire it up, then let them fly!
You'll need 4 C size batteries, which are not included. It also took a bit of time to fight through all of the plastic packaging as we were taking it out of the box, but to be fair that is true of most toys these days.
As it is so quick firing, the clip is emptied in seconds and so once you're out of ammo, you really need more clips that are ready to go rather than stop/starting when collecting up the darts to reload. The NERF N-Strike Elite Rapidstrike CS-18 comes with one clip and 18 Elite darts, and you can buy additional accessories separately. The motor can give away your position so if you can't be stealthy, just fire quickly!
The kids really enjoyed playing with this NERF gun and I think it's probably the best one we have tried. We'll definitely be stocking up on more darts so that the games can be as fast-paced as the firing!
We received a complimentary NERF N-Strike Elite Rapidstrike CS-18 Blaster from Toys R Us for review purposes as part of the 2014 TRU Toyologist programme. The views shared are my own personal & honest opinions and written in my own words. All links are no-follow.
