Top 10 Best Elite Nerf GunsThe 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
This is my most favorite gun ever. It is not as heavy as the stampede, has extremely fast fire rate, and has a great built in sight. The adjustable stock allows you to aim way better, and has a clear mag so I can see if I'm low. It has plenty of attachment rails, although I just use the iron sights, but I sometimes put on the stampede foregrip. It's great at all ranges, and only needs four C batteries while the stampede needs six D batteries. The only downsides is the price and the chance of running low on battery. Overall it is the gun that rules the battlefield.
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 is one of the best ever built. There are some points of improvement that nerf could make on it though. For starters, when you put barrel attachments on it, they tend to wobble. And the longstrike barrel won't fit at all! It's also too wide to put the stampede blast shield on it. I would also have liked it better if it was stock compatible and if it didn't weigh as much. But other than that, it is a BEAST and would love to have one, but for now I'm stuck with using the one my friend has. Oh, well!
Great weapon overall, looks like a sub machine gun, which adds to how awesome it performs. Reloading isn't an issue as long as you stocked your mag(s) ahead of time, it would be ashame if you had to head for cover to put darts in the mag and then proceed to reload, and by that time half of your team would be out. Fun and cool weapon, recommend to anyone. Price is reasonable, just buy extra mags and darts, and your set for war. Total price of the gun and extra mags and darts rounds up to approxamitely $100, more or less.
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.
This is a very good blaster, for range, jam rate (Almost never :D), and ammo capacity. This gun is not, as people often will tell you, that great for accuracy. However, what can you expect? Any N-Strike elite blaster will have poor accuracy. The Rampage may be better than, say, the Retaliator, for accuracy, but is about the same as any other N-Strike elite blasters. It still would top the list over any electric blasters, simply for the noise they make. The rampage has a very good ammo capacity, and can still do slam-fire if you wish, so it would beat any auto or semi-auto blasters.
This is the best gun ever. The 25 dart drum makes for easy reloading and maximum capacity. You prime it with the handle so the handle acts as a forearm grip and primer (unlike the retaliator). Unlike other fast firing guns this doesn't need any batteries. Using slam fire you can get up to about 2 darts in per second (more than enough in a nerf war).
The jam door is really cool, you just open, fix the jam, then slide it back. It very rarely jams making it great for frontline firing.
This is the best nerf gun of all time.
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.
This gun is my favorite nerf gun because of the mad sneak attacks. I love this gun and have used it in many nerf wars, and I have won 60%of the time. I love this gun! I am not going to lie but it does take some getting used to loading and sometimes jam but I mean what stock/clip nerf gun doesn't jam once in a while. But It works really well if you are a nerf fan or just a noob this is a great gun to buy. I highly recommend this blaster. Five stars!
The Retaliator is the fifth NERF gun I have ever purchased and by far my favorite. The reload is amazing (capable of firing two bullets in a second), and it's tactical rail and upgrades make it superior to many others. It also has amazing range. It is generally great blaster. I one went up against two people (One with the Firestrike and one with the Sharpfire) and won with this blaster. I highly recommend this great NERF weapon.
I just got the N strike Elite variant because that white paint job is quiche. Since I've only just got it I haven't experienced jamming yet but I can't wait to customize the HELL out this gun with modulus kits! to be honest I don't think that nerf should have made the recon mkII because it can't handle mags at all and it comes with less attatcments. Also don't stick a dart in the hole in the grip because it's a pain to get out since you risk ripping darts.
It can shoot fast and slow as the owner wish if it will shoot slow then it could save darts and retaliator and delta trooper should be on the number 1 because it can reload faster than any gun in the series n- strike elite and I know that it dosen,t contains big capacity of darts but it can be upgraded and it is a good sniper gun so it should be the best gun in the series n- strike elite
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.
The only way
I see you there is a great deal of experience with the best way for a few weeks ago, I have a great time, and the kids. We have the same time as a friend, and the other day. It was nice and I am going to have to be the most part. It is a very long time ago. I am going to have to be the most part. It is the only way to go toa few days, but the most important thing to do it, and a few days, the only way I could have been the most part 6th. I am going to get a chance, can be found
By far the best. It's basically a maverick on ultra insane steroids. It has slam-fire, decent capacity, good range & accuracy. It has more sling adapters than the Maverick, better Tactical Rail placement and jams less. Other guns like the Retaliator, Rampage etc. Have their cons. Whereas the Strongarm has none that are noticeable.
This has to be like the most popular nerf gun (along with the maverick) there is. anyone who has a nerf gun has this. it's little bulky for what it is but it fires a good six darts, comes with a slam fire function and you could play Russian roulette with it (just don't look at the barrel)!
I do not know much about nerf guns but I know one thing for sure that this is an extremely good nerf gun! there is only one thing that you can have problem with: I have had a few jamming issues and it is annoying in a nerf battle but that does not happen very much and it is a very quick and easy process to unjam it again.You can load up to nine bullets at at a time and has a very good accuracy and long rang shot and can shoot its bullets very fast and has great power! I have won lots of battles due to this gun and recommend it to anyone who loves winning battles and having fun!
Review by Jack, 9 years old
A fantastic gun, it's a small fly-wheel cup fed blaster, which is nice, it has an amazing rate of fire and excellent range, it has 2 tactical rails, one on top and bottom, and a barrel and stock extension thing. It's very light and is amazing in wars with its accuracy being amazing. Having a retaliator stock, muzzle break, retaliator stick grip and red dot sight, it's amazing, I think this is the best gun with its great price of about $20, I say it's the best
This flywheel blaster is a must-get if you participate in Nerf wars. I just got mine a few weeks ago and I already am in love with it. It is very maneuverable and lightweight, which is an advantage if you are playing as a scout or if you cannot handle the weight of blasters like the RapidStrike. It's a great gun, but get a bigger clip after you get it, as you would empty out a 6 round magazine in around 10 seconds.
I love using this gun mainly on the fact of it being a motorized pistol, not only did it pass up my hail-fire but with my 36 dart drum I would win or come close to winning every all for one round but the only drawbacks I see is that without my Raider CS 35 that I bought a long wile back this thing would run out of ammo so fast, and (I don't know if it is just mine) it is very unacurate without my Longshot's front extention. But this is still quite a good gun.
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.
Easy prime, slam fire, comfortable, and overall very balanced making it easy to wield and easy to shoot, unlike the retaliator. I don't understand how some people prefer the retaliator or the rampage over this as it is a combination of the 2, the retaliator's prime to me is awkward and the rampage is just weird to wield.
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!
I don't recommend this gun. When you run the darts occasionally fall out which is a bummer. Yes, it does shoot two darts at a time, but, just because there's two darts doesn't mean it will hit your target better. The darts just go down the same path so this gun would be just as good with only one column of darts. The primer is cool though. This gun is bad, do not buy it.
Incredible gun! especially when you run out of ammo, unlike any other gun it hold 8 darts and is ridiculously easy to reload. doesn't matter how you put the darts in, it will shoot one from each vertical barrel, and if you pull the trigger half way it will shoot one dart at a time as oppose to both barrels -- for Zombie edition that is anyway. This has exceeded all 20 other guns I've had.
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.
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!
AMAZING GUN, extremely reliable, amazing range, the only con is that's it's a TINY bit heavy, but for that they give you a bipod. During a NERF War I recked the whole team (4v4). Only problem is that it might cost you around €20/30 for the batteries, you need 6 of the big ones. If you waste a little more and get rechargables it will more than pay for itself over time.
I got this nerf gun for my 12th birthday and I love it! My whole family loves it my brother says it is the best nerf gun ever and I say that too. It never has jammed once. It shoots 50 darts quicker than any other nerf gun we have.
This gun is AMAZING! It jams much less than you would think. It's a tiny bit heavy for me (I'm only 12). It's better than the Vulcan with it's huge capacity, but doesn't look as good. Looks like a lame Star Wars thing
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.)
Effectiveness of a semi auto rifle plus the huge capacity of a machine gun equals an awesome nerf gun for nerf wars! Right out of the box, not that good, but give it 8 12/18 dart magazines and it should be 3rd place on this list. If you like to use your gun as a shield, keep that plastic disc on. If you like to be mobile just take it off it doesn’t need it to work or dominate nerf wars
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.
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!
Pretty great blaster. semi auto functions are great. but of course since the grenade isn't actually explosive (obviously not like literally explosive with gunpowder or whatever but maybe of they had a thing that when fired, shoots a spray of three of four darts, all in different locations or something), it probably would earn a place around here on the ranking. it's like a strife with a stock but with a handy foam rocket that you can shoot at people. it isn't the best for actually hitting people but you can shoot it at your opponent as a brief distraction before you send a hail of darts at them.
This gun is amazing. I like the idea of the secondary missile. It shoots hard and accurately. I don't know why its ranked six and not first. Its amazing and truly awesome possum and definitely awesome sauce. Its cool as ice cubes, which explains why its batman's favorite nerf gun. He uses it all the time
It may be semi-auto and have 8 darts less than the rapidstrike. But it has above-elite range and it comes pre-packed with a Nerf grenade launcher, making tactical advantages constantly appear in your hands. For example, you could force a crowd to dodge your flying missle, but then pepper them in foam and rubber defeat.
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!
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.
Of all of my Nerf experience, this gun turned out to be the best. Although it's small, it has probably massive amounts of power compared to many other guns. This includes large guns, small guns, fancy guns, and many more. So in my opinion, this probably turned out to be one of the best Nerf guns of all time.
When your primary runs dry, you whip out this thing, as it is small enough to fit into any pocket, and fire 3 darts to annihilate your opponent. The triad is also dirt cheep. Mine was 7 U.S dollars! It's a jolt with better range, accuracy, and dart capacity, but still small.
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.
I vote this one simply because of power power POWER! Very powerful not the best for accuracy, but the
Laser is nice, also it's cheap. Pretty good for a sidearm. I didn't vote for the rampage because it jams sooo much. the people who say it doesn't jam very much do not know what they're talking about.
This was my first nerf gun and it is awesome. I got it for Christmas on 2014 it is probably the best pistol to use in a battle because it is easy to reload it shoots far and overal it's just a good gun to use. I've seen them in store and there 10.9
It is really good I have the elite version and it shoots super hard and super accurate! Nerf guns arnt suppost to be accurate but this one is! I know the laser doesn't have much use but on short range were ever the lazer points at the dart goes. it's also really cheap and small! Definitely recomend!
The trigger on this is super easy to pull, and it's the most compact behind the stryfe, but it holds more in the barrel, and 10 more in the detachable stock. But it's kinda hard to put things on the tactical rail. Other than that, it's a great little gun and highly recommended as a first buy!
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.
I own a stockade it is a pretty good gun. Takes too much of battery also, bullets get jammed sometimes. Works well only when the battery is full.But,pretty good and decent gun.Recommended for people who don't like loading their guns often to shoot.
Very inaccurate and rather pointless. Could be used as a cover gun but the capacity is pretty low.
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!
This gun had a good concept but its performance was what made me prefer the hammershot over this. It shoots as far as some small pistols and requires one to pull the cocking mechanism so far back. Though it may be the best sniper so far. The longshot was worse.
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.
This nerf blaster is awesome, my best nerf gun but the main thing is it's too big actually no nerf blaster fire how much ever high it is written on the box, but I think it's awesome.
The best nerf decision I've ever made...I hear it humming and I think,"this is better than the rapidstrike the rampage,this is better than edisions invention of the lightbulb, this is the answer to all my nerf prayers...
My friend has it and it is insane! When it hits you it packs a powerful punch. Easy 910
Shoots really fast has has the most ammo of any nerf blaster
Its an aoto with 104 darts and I keep it special but for the cons its very loud
I only did it for the camera. It shoots mainly like the Rapid-Strike but comes with 6 less bullets. I don't know but it was kinda a waste of $80 AUS dollars. like it only holds 3 hours of film and but is good because I can hold about 2000 snapshots!
No you wouldn't want a rough cut youd lose your darts in 5 seconds flat so yeah who gives a damn if it its 80$ and and yeah ohnestly the camera could be better but hey it's a nerf gun its pretty sick to have a cam in a blaster. Screw you it's a a good gun
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
Its like the rapid strike, comfy, a camera and great performance for a nerf blaster over all WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU VOTE FOR THE TRIAD OR JOLT!
This gun is amazing.
Should've made into top three because of everything like its banana clip and missile.
And it's very unique color.
Best Flywheel Blaster by far. Plus, the missile is a cool touch. It has amazing ranges and the banana clip is realistic and cool.
THIS IS AMAZING...this should've been in top 5...it has 2 rockets and darts!
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!
Bruh its beast. Hardly ever jams and also the 5 darts per second comes in handy when against multiple players definitely should be put in a higher rank on 2nd or 3rd plus coop772 made a review and it tied with the rapidstrike
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
I got it for Christmas and it shoots 80-90 feet and it shoots five darts a second. It should be first in this
This nerf gun is the ultimate weapon for a nerf war! It smoothly takes the darts and has a clip system for practically UNLIMITED firepower. Shoots way farther than the advertised 90 ft! Super accurate too. A must have for any nerf collection. Also looks epicly intimidating to others
It breaks darts if your gonna get this gun I suggest you buy Gen 3 Koosh darts for this gun cause this thing literally DESTROYS darts I am currently using off brand X-Shot darts for this thing but overall it shoots as powerful as a JOLT and that's saying something.
The maverick is however weaker and I have seen walcom coop and maybe even drac and it fired well and accurately I would take this bull pup stringer to a Nerf war (if I had one) any day. PS comments 2 and 3 are not what so ever true.
Accurate, powerful, long range, it is an overall EPIC nerf gun. I'm comes with a 12 dart clip, so it's a great clip size! I would definitely reccomend this.
It is a great handgun
Love the lazer
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.)
The modulus is amazing for battles awesome scope and banana clip. If you put too many parts on it it gets too heavy. Overall it is the best ever gun I recommend it
Essentially the 2 in 1 demolisher with a ton of tactical rails and easier modding, as all of its electrical components are on one shell, whereas the demolisher has wiring on 3 shells.
The Modulus is an amazing gun, with a cool banana mag, and so many customization options. It wrecks in a nerf war, and I highly recommend it!
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!
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
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.
This is pretty light weight, it doest get jammed... at all and with proper care with the darts, they shoot like 120 feet actually, especially with the elite darts buut... you can stretch a muscle in your thumb after having to pull the part back so many times but I recommend this gun to anyone
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.
This thing is awesome in fire rate and awesomeness. One problem. You have to pump this twenty times to shoot the entire clip. If Hasbro removes the need to pump but just pull the trigger, I will give all my Nerf guns (including modded ones) for this formation of cool.
Yes, one of the best blasters Nerf has ever made. This beast has a calculated ROF of 20 DPS, empties its ten dart clip in.46 seconds. Loud and intimidating, just the sound is enough to make opponents cower instinctively.
Great can shoot ten bullets in a sec great for spraying at big amount of people!
Just don't dear god don't use it to ammo hunrgy it's been past 2013 for 2-3 years now simi-auto or slamfire their the best anything else needs to take a hike.
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.
This has always been my favorite. It never jams and I always know I'm well off taking this into battle
A brilliant nerf gun with the best range of them all it is a must have!
