12 Elite Darts
The Retaliator is an 2012 N-Strike Elite blaster that can hold up to 12 Elite Darts with its default clip and ammunition. It is essentially a Recon CS-6 redone with "Elite Distance" and paint scheme, along with different accessories. It comes with a variety of accessories, just like with the Recon CS-6. However, unlike the Recon CS-6, it does not come with a flip-up sight or a light beam unit. Instead, it comes with a Retaliator detachable stock, a Retaliator foregrip and a Retaliator barrel extension. It should be compatible with all types of clips and drums, unless the blaster is damaged or other complications occur. It also comes with a 12-Dart Clip, the third type of clip released. While this clip holds less than the Stampede ECS's 18-Dart Clip, it holds more than the 6-Dart Clip that comes with the Recon CS-6. Thus, it is a good middle ground sized clip for those who want a clip not as bulky as the 18-dart clip, but can hold more darts than the 6-dart clip.
How to Fire Edit
Step 2: Load the 12-Dart Clip into the blaster.
Step 3: Pull back the cocking handle on the top until it stops.
Step 4: Push the cockling back to its original position.
Step 5: Press the trigger all the way down to fire a dart.
The Retaliator was one of the first known N-Strike Elite blasters, alongside the Rampage. It looks very similar to a Recon CS-6 and uses the same Clip System. Because of this, it is compatible with the 6 and 18-Dart Clip as well as the 18, 25 and 35-Dart Drum. It is also compatible with Streamline Darts. It is, in fact, almost identical to a Recon CS-6, in terms of design, with a different colour scheme when all the accessories that come with both blasters are not attached.
|Retaliator - 9|
|Basically can fit any role, as long as the user knows what they're doing.|
|Ammo: Elite Darts|
|Pros: Good range, good capacity, the foregrip can help keep you steady, and the blaster in general is very solid.|
| Cons: None that should affect an average Nerfer too much.
|The Retaliator is the perfect example of a jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none blaster. By far, one of the best blasters for beginners and very viable for experienced users, due to its versatility. It's highly recommended that you buy this blaster if you have the chance.|

- The Retaliator is the only N-Strike Elite CS direct plunger blaster to not have slam fire capabilities.
