Top 10 Best Elite Nerf GunsVintagePetRaptor The New N-Strike Elite Line came in 2012 and rolled over N-strike. So which of these new guns are the best?
The Top Ten
Its obviously the best because it shoots 4 darts a second! Not only that it has a built in scope and it can take ammo clips making it easy to reload plus it has great range and yes it is the best nerf gun EVER!
This gun is amazing, it's extremely reliable, great range, only problem would be the batteries shorting out in the middle of a nerf war, but if you replace it before the war, it's not a problem, and the other problem is the jamming. This gun is so reliable that, in a 5v5 I took out 3 of them the first time, and I took out 4 of them the second.
In my opinion this gun is the best to use in a Nerf war. Apart from the sound it makes as it is firing there isn't really any other negatives. The rate of fire is amazing and personally it is a really comfortable gun to use as it is not too heavy and the stock can be adjusted. However one of my favourite aspects is the railings... It has 2 on the top, 1 on the bottom and 2 at the sides which I easily put my custom torch and laser on. Overall if you are looking to buy a gun for Nerf wars I would recommend this one 100%!
This gun has great aim! It is the best! Works great with the riot shield I made, and the stock is very comfortable and can shift positions. I took out 8 people in a free for all and 6 in squads. I love the many attachments you could use to put on The RAPIDSTRIKE!V 411 Comments
The legends are true about this tactical shotgun style nerf gun. Jam rate is extremely low. Weight is balanced. Holds more than enough ammo. Accuracy is ranked one of the highest in the elite series. Slam fire adds great option for close combat panic situations. Lastly the range is more than enough to hang as a long range primary. This is an overall beast without batteries.
Great gun. I have a rampage and never get out in games. Very accurate with an effective range of around 30 feet. It also has slam fire, which is great if you're outnumbered. It also makes a very accurate sniper rifle, and is only around $30. Very mobile unlike the raider, it's the raider V.2.0. Doesn't jam at all, and 25 rounds is more than enough. Great primary. Has a direct plunger. With all that being said, the nerf elite rampage should definitely be number 1.
This is the best gun ever it should be ranked #1. It is a great primary gun. I recommend using the 18 dart clip and not the 25 because the 25 makes it feel awkward and the 18 dart can still spray someone down. You can shoot the full 18 dart clip in under 15 Seconds. Easy to mive around with and attack and also a good camping gun. I use it for every battle and I have almost every nerf gun. You can easily run in a room with a team of five when they less expect it and take all five of them down. Great gun definitely should be #1 and you should definitely buy it. Also it has never Jamed in the time I have had it and I've had it for about 2 years and it still shoots like it is brand new. Very accurate gun and can shoot at least 40 feet. If you put the most accurate nerf bullet in it it is even more incredible. But it is still increasingly with a regular nerf bullet.
It great it gams but I always win nerf wars with itV 227 Comments
This gun is amazing. it is my first N-strike elite gun and it is worth it. It never jams and can be reassembled very easily. the detachable stock and barrel means you can increase or decrease wight, power and accuracy. It is easy to modify so it can be even better. Overall an amazing buy that I recommend.
Great gun. If it was in your stocking at Christmas you could get it out and just start using it and great place to store in a nerf war because it's so small disassembled but can also be assembled very quickly.
Powerful, easy to handle, nice dart capacity, also if you have a nerf bandolier or tactical best, it makes it extremely easy to reload. The only problem is that the blue retaliator jams very commonly, so if you want to get a retaliator, my advice is to get a white one. It fixes the jam problems. Nonetheless, the white one is the best nerf rifle.
It works well and looks coolV 291 Comments
Brilliant gun over all. I don't know why people prefer the Rampage as this has better range, looks and the mag isn't in an awkward position. With slam fire this gun rules and can fire faster than any other gun in good hands. It is easy to mod with simple internals and kits readily available. The Elite Alpha Trooper is a light weight, simple killing machine.
I've had this gun for a while. It has reliable slam fire, which allows it to fire as fast as an unmodded machine gun, and doesn't require spinning up any flywheels. It's also accurate, has good range, and never jams, and the 12-dart clip has plenty enough capacity for spraying opponents. A shame that you never really see these online or in stores anymore.
Easily the best for sale number of reasons. Range and accuracy first and foremost. Second, is volume of fire. With extended mags and easy magazine changes you can put out more darts, more accurately than anyone in the room. This gun is actually less likely to jam when using slam fire. Nothing fancy, simple and effective.
WOW this one was crazy and I mean it. I totally pulverised the gang and this has been one of my first choice guns if I am in a dire situation. Sure there are better ones in the Elite but it's a total rescuer.V 100 Comments
If you have new darts and batteries with full ammo then this is the best gun. It's a shame they only get sold with 24 darts but at least you can use other clips that can hold 10 or 12 darts. (I removed the disc thing around the clips because they are not needed and they make the gun much bigger and a little heavier.)
Awesome gun! Biggest capacity in the whole nerf age! Doesn't jam a lot, but the only thing is they only sell this baby with 24 darts out of 144 darts. Awesome gun who ever think this gun is suck is a loser! ( double loser)
I just went out on the battlefield a few minutes ago, and I had the hail-fire with me, suddenly 2 players came for the flag, (a recon barrel) but I got both of them with a 25 dart drum before they got it.

Very amazing gun! We had a very LARGE Nerf Gun "war" at our church and this thing didn't JAM ONCE! I loved it! Now, to the bad stuff...It is not very accurate. For instance, If you were aiming for single people like a "Nerf Sniper" would this gun would not make a pleasing experience! It is also VERY BULKY! You would need a table or something to hold it up. Now the gun having NO ACCURACY WHATSOEVER does have a SLIGHT advantage...If a large group of people came in you could just keep firing your gun! It IS an AUTOMATIC so it MAY JAM! Overall I had a GREAT experience with this gun and WOULD recommend it to a friend! I would have to tell them about the Bulkiness, No Accuracy, Etc. Overall a 8/10! Very good Gun!
This gun is amazing, makes for epic battles. Sit at the entrance to your base with the tripod on and wait for the enemy to come. Epic highly recommend
Amazing gun holds 50 bullets crazy range and rapid fire you don't get much of those guns. Nice that they have a tripod for a big gun useful for sniping
This is thhe best gun for me.V 209 Comments
Basically Maverick on steroids bro, Strongarm is way more powerful, and it doesn't jam like every time you shoot, unlike the Maverick, where the sucker darts keep on popping up. Love the slam fire as well. Dual wielding with Strongarm is easy, as all you have to do is attach a string to the slides of each gun, and when you need to cock them, just pull the guns away from each other and boom! I use this combo along with a triad when playing CTF
I don't recommend this as a primary but as a secondary, this thing is the beast. You easily pull back the gray primer to prime the gun. You can also slam fire which is great if you need to use your secondary in a nerf war. It holds 6 darts at a time (great for a pistol) and there's a cool button for the barrel to fall out allowing you to reload. While reloading, if you spin the barrel it makes an awesome clicking noise which I thought was really cool. When ever I shoot it at someone up to 15 feet away, it hurts, a lot. Great secondary gun.
As with most all Nerf Guns, the accuracy is not great, due to the holes on the side of the darts, but ver powerful, and small enough to carry around without getting in your way, and slam fire! Very good gun all around, and easy to mod, which is a bonus!
There's no way to describe it but awesomeV 182 Comments
A fantastic gun. I especially love the amazing rate of fire it gets, as it fires much faster than any other flywheel blaster except for the raven. Is excellent for moving across open spaces and is considerably more lightweight than something like the rapid strike.
This gun is awesome! It is only 20$ normally but I got mine for 13$. You need a big clip though because it empties the 6-clip in no time flat. Great gun, but get an 18-dart clip with it for the most dart capacity.
Very cool gun. Has a very high rate of fire and has a lot of tactical rails for expansions. When I got it I thought it would be just for beginners but it is used by many pros. I recommend this gun for any children any age.
Compact, reliable, easy to use with good performance. Works great straight out of the box but also an excellent platform for accessories and modifications.V 201 Comments
Got this for my nephew's bday. I wish nerf guns in my day looked this kool and was a semi automatic. All I had was ballzooka. Yeah, wow, fun. Anyways, it's a semi shooting above elite ranges with a grenade launcher when you're clipped out of darts. Battery consumption is reasonable for this big fly wheel spitting out darts from the kool banana clip. So what else can you ask for. Oh yea, that giant sized bullet can hurt if you get one really good pump. Definitely don't aim that to the face!
This is an awesome nerf gun the rapid strike is better for a nerf war but I like this better it has the most power in the entire nerf history and if you shoot it on some guy in a nerf war that guy will get hurt and hesitate so that's why I would prefer this nerf n strike elite demolished 2in 1 blaster
I have this gun, and all I have to do to win a war is rev the loud engine. And when I shoot, the bullet flies fast and accurate. The only problem is that the missiles break to easily. Still, it beats out every other gun on the market!
This is just one of the best nerf gun ever
Nothing else About it.
Not my favorite primary, but definitely my favorite side arm. never had problems with gun handling, and it is great for close quarter fighting where larger blasters are unwieldy and don't get the spray effect this does. Best sidearm I have ever owned
I just recently got it and agree with the people that suggest it being a secondary weapon. This gun is unpredictable and often has rough jams. The range and accuracy will vary every shot itch does give you an advantage because the enemy will have to guess where the two bullets will go as they fly at them at different speeds and patterns. This gun in my opinion is worth it!
This gun is more of a secondary weapon in my book. It is pretty reliable and has considerable accuracy and speed. It can fire one or two shots at a time, which is interesting since you can determine a situation where you need to save or let loose a flurry of bullets. Overall, it's a reliable and decent secondary weapon.
This has to be second best behind the rapidstrikeV 114 Comments
Don't judge by it's looks. This little side arm is very very misleading with it's size to power ratio. If you think this is a pee wee blaster with no kick, you'll be surprised when the person who is shot by this is left with a mark. Smart ar, compact, and can hang with or destroy some of the other elite guns in comparison. And lastly, dirt cheap.
This tiny pistol has a lot more power than its looks suggest. It is easily the best sidearm choice out there, since it can shoot powerfully and accurately and with a decent range. Dual wielding with a sword in one hand and this pistol in the other, I ruin the battle field! With just the pistol, as long as you're a little athletic, you can out pace even the rapid fire, due to its ability to shoot so well!
When I got this for Christmas I thought it was going to shoot a couple of feet and then I shot it at my brother and it packs a punch. Really cheap and quick and easy to reload. Perfect gun for me
I an a sniper with itV 58 Comments
This Nerf blaster is very cool, but honestly it's impractical. First of all it's overpriced, it's bulky, it's way too big, it doesn't actually fire 100 feet :/ and its capacity is limited. - VintagePetRaptor
I think that there is A LOT of HATE for this gun! Although it may sting A LITTLE it DOES NOT HURT! I think that this is a VERY FUN "Sniper" gun! Overall a 7/10 Review.
This gun looks epic, and as soon as I saw it I bought the sonic ice version. I have to say, it can shoot insanely far, but it isn't very accurate past 15 meters. It also hits HARD. Since it is designed for long range, and my nerf war area is pretty small, I basically only use it for shooting targets. Seriously though, this thing can make a grown man cry!
I have this gun and when ever I fire it it leaves a mark and it has a lot of power.V 77 Comments
My first gun ever, it shoots really really really far & is great for a secondary ( or main gun if you think its that good.) The loading of this gun is slightly harder than average, however I have no problem with loading it. This gun has a laser that is really nice and much much better than the glowshot. Overall this is one of the best guns... EVER!
My first gun and its great when it comes to accuracy and weight but it has a very long reload time and small dart capacity I'm talking five seconds per dart. A good secondary side arm.
This pistol is by far the best pistol nerf EVER made. It has a fantastic laser, shoots extremely far and has spots for two more darts. The laser only takes 2 AAA batteries which are super cheap. I would recommend this gun to absolutely everybody. I don't which is better, this or the retaliator. WARNING : this thing stings. A lot.
Small but deadlyV 65 Comments
Great can shoot ten bullets in a sec great for spraying at big amount of people!
Of course not you ass!
Don't swear boy
RAYVEN Is THE BESTV 11 Comments
Amazing bow it has long range and hard shots when I did nerd gun game I put this gun in for a reason
Great if you ad your friends are playing the hunger games
So cool! Best primary you will ever have, and the darts pack a punch! it is super accurate, and it with the thunder bow and lightning bow sounds cool! Thunder and lightning!
it sucks!V 2 Comments
Very inaccurate and rather pointless. Could be used as a cover gun but the capacity is pretty low.
Very useful just time worthy to reload.
Good fun and easy to use against anyone in a nerf gun war. Has good fire power too. Shot my brother a few times and he had red dots on his arms for weeks.
IT HAS AN ON/OFF SWITCH! - socoolmudkipV 33 Comments
It sucks duh you people
Shoots really fast has has the most ammo of any nerf blaster
It is so powerful and holds a lot of ammo
Its an aoto with 104 darts and I keep it special but for the cons its very loudV 7 Comments
PIECE OF CRAP NERF GUN I'D RATHER BUY A ROUGH CUT
Nerf Cam Sucks here in 80 dollars buy a nerf gun that's better than this nerf cam like the rampage rapidstrike.3 mega pixel in 2015 this is not acceptable it would be kay if it records like my iPhone 5s
I work for nerf they do terrible things. All they want is dough.
Add a scope to itV 36 Comments
It shoots far and is super accurate. It has loads of power and it is very fun to play with.
This is the best Nerf gun I ever got it's so awesome it like never jams it shoots more powerfully than some guns.
What u people talking about this is the strongest but least accurate gun ever seriously maverick is better than this so called crossbolt I hate it
I love itV 33 Comments
A classic example of being simultaneously the best gun and the worst gun it is invaluable for any elite and can outmaneuver any other gun in a close couters skirmish however it is neither a primary nor secondary gun but rather a situational gun that can decide a battle depending on how it is used in the hands of an expert a completely overpowered tool that can easily take out single enemies however a beginner has no business using it in a war except in case you run out of ammo it the chance of it jamming is astronomically low even when most guns eventually become less reliable and it has very little disadvantage to keeping in your inventory at any time and the only one of its kind and even though the triad ex-3 can shoot 3 times without reload its reliability decreases over time and can be outmaneuvered or get stuck in your pocket at the very worst of times all and all a gun truly in its own league and given the cost and size no real downside to getting and yes I actually do put ...more
Best backup weapon ever, very concealable and compact it may be small but it still shoots as hard as any other nerf gun. It is also quick and easy to load. Great nerf gun and one of my favorites
This gun got awesome range with amazing accuracy, and it is best when you are running out of ammo and want a gun that you can fire single handed. I love this gun, but still Triad is just too awesome.
OP SO MUCH AMO WITH RAPID FIRE BUT BULKYV 45 Comments
This gun honestly sucks, but I think its only the one I got.
I like the spectre it shots far and it comes with cool nerf attachments I Love it
The barrel is good
It's all rightV 5 Comments
It shoots 5 darts a second. It can shoot all of its darts in 5 seconds! Its one of the fastest shooting nerf gun ever
Glad it's on the list. Unhappy it's not in the #1 spot. This beast TRASHES all others trying to attempt to almost tie it. In fact, it's so good that some nerf wars I'm in van it! - Techno
I have this gun and I love it it is a perfect example of a gun for rushing enemy bases the only problem is that even with a drum mag you burn through ammo super quick
Super fast good for a nerf war when batteries are fully chargedV 27 Comments
Great gun my best primary, goes great with the tried ex-3.You can put as many attachments as you want and as many combinations as you want.There is special kits for it there are special stock, sights, barrels, grips, mags, and laser attachments that say "modulus" so must of the white and orange attachment are for this.If you like customizing then this is your gun.(Fair warning if you get the modulus and get the starter attachments the stock is very wobbly you can put another mag in there but the stock is very wobbly so you may need to get a better one or just reinforce the stock with pbc pipe I just got a new one, also the stock is not very comfortable so just get a new one.)
It's a good blaster not gonna sneak attack anyone though but same with the other motorized blasters plus its cool with all the upgrade kits and stuff definitely a good primary
Best blaster in my opinion the internals of it and the demolisher are exactly the same so you can either get the one with a ton of tactical rails, and mods which is the Modulus, or you can get the stupid Granade launcher, which is the demolisher. The modulus is super comfortable if you put the correct grips and stocks on it and with semi auto that will allow you to fire as fast as an unmoded machine gun, well it's no hard choice to the Modulus over any nerf gun.
Very goodV 32 Comments
It is a awesome gun and I suggested this gunV 3 Comments
It is a bit good for nerf wars hvz and its kinda fun to have around though
2 DARTS OR 1 DART
8 SHOTS BEFORE RELOAD
DARTS FALL OUT
COCKING HANDLE GETS STUCK
This gun is awesome! Practically a nerf shotgun gun with two barrels, however, if you pull the trigger very lightly, only one dart will shot
This gun in a Nerf war can do serious damage at close range. Not very accurate, and only holds 8 shots. 2 darts per second, and serious punch. I'm talking knock over Masonite and wood boxes punch. Worth it if you are in close range.
It's real cool but they should add more ammo capacityV 5 Comments
This is a great sniper blaster it has a great consistent shooting distance. This gun has the best accuracy in all the nerf elite blaster line!
This used to be my favorite gun. If you put a stronger spring in it it probably would be a good sniper rifle.
It is a good sniper blaster and shoots very far distance and also very very very very quiet in shooting things and easy to reload
This has always been my favorite. It never jams and I always know I'm well off taking this into battleV 8 Comments
I'm surprised this one hasn't made the list yet. It is small, and easy to use one-handed. Basically a single action five shot revolver. At close range it is incredibly precise, with the darts only starting to wobble once they begin to really slow down. elite darts give moderately better Don't ask to get shot anywhere tender either.
Great weapon. In my opinion with light mods it could be a primary. This thang shoots far and almost never misses and the best part, in can not jam! BUY THIS GUN!
This is the best secondary gun Nerf has made. You can operate with one hand and has great range and accuracy. It is also extremely easy to reload.
Great secondary, you can dual wield these for competitive wars.
Better range than the strongarm
Can't think of a better gun for a backup
The NERF Rival Apollo is definitely one of the best nerf guns out there, if not the best.
It fires at 70MPH/100FPS
Fires the new rival balls which are better than the darts because it is more accurate and can bounce off walls (I know this isn't particularly about the blaster but I still think this is useful)
Quite irritating priming mechanism which also blocks out scopes
Finally I have to add that it can fire cheese balls, not than useful but still a funny extra thing,
Love the new ammo, but might wan to get a pump action kit
Cool gun shoots fast
This beast can fire 100 fps! It is also said to be the most powerful nerf gun. I love this beast!V 6 Comments
Great gun this should be in the top ten
Sometime jam a lot but a good gun.
If you get at walmart its likely that 18 mags will work. should be in the top ten great sidearm
"It is a great blaster the things I like about the Recon MKII is that it is a great spin on an old favorite. Yes I know it can't take banana mags but if you have a 25 drum (which I do) It works fine. It's compact and it has a side rail. Side rails are the best! Either for the gangster shot the mlg sniper $tatus torches or the close quarters kit which use. when I run this I have the storage stock that can hold 10 darts with the flip kit upgrade and the close quarteers. great blasterV 1 Comment
Only the worst darts on earth will jam this blaster I know I can trust it more than any other blaster
Best gun forever and ever
The CS-6 is my most valuable nerf gun. It's even better than my ECS-10 Modulus
It's amazingV 2 Comments
Good gun. Jams frequently with old over-used darts casuing the spring to move slightly pushing the bullet against the gun near the back folding or wrecking the bullet which causes the jam. What that means that the spring will sometimes move pushing the bullet to the side out of the actual shooting hole decreasing accuracy.
This gun is epic because it fires so rapidly. You can also single fire it. All round cool and best nerf gun
Needs a bigger clip and gets jammed a lot in battle but overall is really good
This is the best nerf blaster of all time here's why:
Small and easy to carry
Isn't too hard to mod
I have it it's a good blaster and I recommend the Nerf zombie strike clear shot
This is a bad gun the fly wheel is horrible its slow and not much power
Good range. Awesome firepower with lots of different kits to! This gun should obvsly. Be the top most gun.V 1 Comment
I have one and live it use it as my primary in almost every game
It is a great gun. Comes with six dartV 2 Comments
Amazing gun. Hits hard and goes long range, only downside is comes with small clip, but just buy 10 round clip.
Best gun I own ( and I have like 36 guns )
By far my favorite, can hold a clip an is lever action an feels good
It Does hold a clip, great gun,but has trouble with jamming because of the lever actionV 5 Comments
This gun is awesome because when I have nerd wars with friends I sit this up on my dads bar and when my friend comes out I hammer him and I felt the pain to because my friend had it and I tried hiding behind my couch and the dang bullets still got me my friend had such a good aim with that gun that he aimed at my gun and shot and the bullet bounced of my gun and got me in the eye!
Super accurate and fires fast comes with 3 18 dart clips has 7 places to put on attachments and the sight that is part of the gun is better than any scope you will want to put on it what else do you want from a gun?
Great gun I had since I was a kid and it has good accuracy and it fires so fast with a SHIELD. It come with 18 darts
It looks awesome so I want it for ChristmasV 14 Comments
I love this gun
I like the little foam balls that it shoots
Best gun ever so powerful and amazing in accuracy this surf gun is 1st for me
It is awesome

I LOVE THE CAM BECAUSE I USE IT TO VIDEO MY MUM IN THE SHOWER
Best bow Nerf has made works like a real bow and is MUCH better than that mega bow that shoots darts instead of arrows.V 2 Comments
I love shooting my friends with it. it is my favorite nerf gun
Very strong and long range bad for close combat
Good gun, powerful gun great range
A very awesome gunV 6 Comments
It's a modulus and its cheap worth buying
This is a cheep sharp fire far better and very easy to mod
It is an awesome gun and its cheap
Best single shot nerf gun
Ok blaster. It has a capacity of 25 darts and fully automatic. However, it does have problems: It's huge and heavy, very hard to move. In fact, it's tripod often gets overcome while turning the thing and collapses. Also, it uses a chain system. Now, besides a couple vintage blasters from the 90's, it is the only one to use a chain system. While it looks cool, it makes the blaster jam more often and it cannot take clips. In the end, while it does have many problems, it is very effective if used right. You should use it in a narrow hallway, this means you have total domination of that space to make parent, pet and friend alike tremble in fear. Just make sure to have a triad or jolt in case your friend sneeks up behind you.
This is the best nerf gun ever because it has really good accuracy, fires fast, and shoots far and painful. The only problem is reloading, but it's still my #1 nerf gun
Love this gun as long as you have the box it will almost never step on to the field with this and everyone will duck for cover
It is NOT ELITEV 2 Comments
Overpriced plastic! The stock is so bendy and it costs 60 GBP!
Great gun for close combat. If someone is spraying you with bullets you can easily deflect them with this gun.
Great gun does not jam at all and 6x4 6 darts for each barrels
Really suck and always jams
good!V 2 Comments
We already did this
Awesome Blaster, you can turn it into anything you want, almost like Lego!
Who wouldn't want a sniper rifle that's automatic.If people don't,than they don't know what they're talking about.
It's the weakest and the strongestV 2 Comments
This gun is my favorite out of all my 50 nerf guns it is just so accurate and cool looking that this gun is one of the best to me.
This thing is a 2 in 1 blaster that makes it so cool
This gun is fast, light weight, and looks like my favorite gun, the TAR-21
