18 Elite Darts
|Average Retail Price(s):||
The RapidStrike CS-18 is a 2013 N-Strike Elite blaster that was released in the US in Target and Wal-Mart. It comes with a clear 18 round clip and requires 4 'C' size batteries to operate. This is the successor of the Stampede ECS. It is a flywheel-powered blaster, as hinted by the acceleration trigger. Like the Stampede, it is a fully automatic blaster. This makes the Rapidstrike the first full-auto flywheel blaster designed to fire darts. However, unlike the Stampede ECS, it has the option of adding a barrel extension. Its stock can be extended but not removed. The battery tray is located beneath the barrel, a first for a Nerf blaster that runs on batteries put in a tray. The RapidStrike is best used as an assault rifle, as it is lighter than the other flywheel primaries and has fully automatic capabilities.
- It was sighted in the US on August 10 in select Target and Walmart stores.
