The Centurion (codenamed the Javelin) is a N-Strike Elite Mega series weapon that can hold up to 6 Elite Mega Darts. It is designed to be a sniper rifle blaster, although it does not fit this role very well. It is part of the new Elite Mega series, has an overall length of 42", and fires up to 100 feet, although most of the time shots will drop significantly below the maximum distance. It uses Elite Mega Darts, which are held in new MCS 6-Dart Clips. Its average retail is $44.99. It is the spiritual successor to the Longshot CS-6, but also has some resemblance to the Stampede ECS, especially the handle of the blaster. The barrel for this blaster cannot be removed once it is installed without dismantling the blaster. The Centurion also requires the barrel to fire. This is because there is a catch in the blaster that stops the blaster from firing. When the barrel is installed, the catch gets pushed up, allowing the blaster to fire. This problem can be overcome by jamming the catch up into the blaster and keeping it there with tape, glue and/or other materials. Not having the barrel increases the reliability of the range of the blaster, but sharply reduces accuracy. If the user wishes to use the blaster without the barrel, they can refer to the previous advice to help. Unlike other clip system blasters which to be loaded halfway through priming, this does not apply to the Centurion. The clip can be easily loaded simply by just sliding it into the blaster. There is no danger of the blaster being damaged, unless caused by tremendous overuse or mishandling by the user. After its release, there were reports by some people of the bolt of the Centurion getting stuck halfway through priming after a short use period. Hasbro has yet to address these complaints.
Pros: Absurd range of 100 feet, long draw, reasonable capacity, removable bipod
Cons: Infamous for chewing up darts, poor accuracy
The Centurion could be a lot better for its size.
It was mentioned on the Nerf Facebook websites on the poster for the Centurion that Not All Centurions Fire Up To 100 Feet because of safety issues in countries such as Australia.
The Centurion is widely considered to be the spiritual successor to the Longshot CS-6, having a cocking bolt, removable bipod, and intgrated barrel similar in design to those of the Longshot. However, like the Rayven CS-18 and Elite Rayven CS-18, the Centurion's stock and handle running from the bottom of the trigger grip to the bottom of the stock are both very similar to those of the Stampede ECS.
