          Can't believe Hasbro was getting away with that RRP.

    Got one last time was cheap. Not a gun for kids <10 years old, it jams quite easily

      Hasbro significantly reduced the manufacturing cost with various techniques lately including solvent welding (less screws) and using thinner plastics a lot more also replacing springs with plastic levers and just generally reducing reliability. Overall the quality has suffered in their “Elite 2.0” offering.

    The only issue is "4 x C Batteries required"

    •  

      may be not a genuine solution, but you can buy C battery shells and use usual AA rechargeable batteries. Its a hack working for me for Nerf and Hotwheels toys.

      •  

        Can you recommend any?

      •  

        I am more concern of the weight. May be better to use 4 AA with battery converter holder so is slightly lighter, but holding the gun with 4 CC batteries and run around may not really for 8 yr old. Otherwise is a very good deal.

    •  

      What the hell mate. 4x C batteries?! But..Why?!

      •  

        Its motorised blaster.

        •  

          I see. That'll increase the weight of the guns a bit then. Does it shoot significantly faster than regular blasters?

            @Munki: You need the extra fire rate for when you are self defencing the hell out of some fleeing toddler.

            @Munki: Nearly all nerf blasters will fire around the same velocity, the size of the blaster doesn’t matter.
            Australian toy laws have relaxed lately but still not going to see more then 70-75 f/s.
            Motorised blasters need a second or two between shots for flywheels to get back to max speed also so the turbine can suffer a drop off after a couple shots being automatic.

        It produces special gun sounds and more powerful I guess. Beside it costs only $5 https://www.woolworths.com.au/shop/productdetails/268125

    It's very prone to jamming.

    •  

      Dont ever book a kids playcentre nerf experience if their using darts and not balls

  •  

    What other magazines could you replace this with? Due to the jamming mentioned in all the reviews?

    •  

      Jamming is also a function of having less than pristine bullets

  •  

    What’s the recoil like on this one?

  •  

    Is the jamming due to the magazines? Or more the internals?

    •  

      Its a quick blaster, fires very fast. Uses a spring in the magazine to push the next dart up.

      What it means though is sometimes if the dart gets squashed or pushed slightly out of alignment, it will bend or squash and jam. Also as the batteries wear down it slows down, which seems to make it a bit better.

      Forgot to mention - its also heavy with 4 x C batteries and the gun must be 80-90cm from stock to tip (so very long).

      •  

        80-90cm?
        It looks about 50-60cm in the videos.

      from Coop772 video, jamming is because of Magazine. Blaster works perfectly fine with other magazines.

      •  

        Any recomendation where to get compatible dart magazine.

    Does it have DRM to only fire "genuine" nerf ammo?

      Nope. Third party waffle darts worked perfectly fine on my this blaster.(tried on my friends blaster).

    Elite 2.0 despite its name is a regression from the original Elite series in every way, good luck taking the blaster apart for modification or repair with all the glue they use.

    •  

      Good luck finding an original rapidstrike, this is good moreso good for the body then gutted with aftermarket parts imo

      •  

        That's my point, you'll probably break the clips holding the blaster together trying to modify it.

  •  

    I miss the Stampede, it felt so much more pure and realistic than the generation of flywheel type blasters that came after it.
