Hasbro introduced the ‘Elite’ range to provide a much better experience, between solid design to unbelievable dart ranges. The N-Strike Elite retaliator can be a power packed edition. When it premiered, our first reaction was what’s never to love? A barrel extension, as well as removable shoulder stock, a much more than handy tac-rail assault grip, single attachment strap so that as many as 3 tactical rails. But the question remains, will it live up to expectations? So we have tested the Nerf N-Strike Elite Retaliator on various aspects and here would be the review.

First things first – The Design

The best feature of their design is its versatility. Adding accessories to your main gun is straightforward and it does add to your functionality. With the kit you receive you can add four different blasters plus it also allows to incorporate accessories using guns too. It can be fair to express that the Elite Retaliator is among the most multifaceted in the Elite series. Apart from these small amount of accessories, i was quite impressed while using ergonomics on the gun. Little additions such as the slats, extra dart storage and that is provided inside the handle and easy yet elegant things just like the embossed logo, These small things add on the whole experience.

Next, it is deemed an absolute pleasure to keep this gun. The designers started using it right in regions of weight distribution and molds are made keeping the adults at heart. However there is certainly one area the spot that the designers did get it wrong that is certainly the trigger action. Pulling the trigger seems resistance free at start but once it is almost done, we faced plenty of resistance. This lag as it were is quite unimpressive. The other thing to dislike could be the overhead mechanism. This affects enough time to prepare between shots and will have an impact in combat situations.

Performance – should it hold up?

This edition is rather simple to use. To launch the dart you just have to push the priming slide. We would claim that whole process is apparently slow since you should pull the slide before every launch.Nerf N-Strike Elite Retaliator Review post pic

It requires a little practice and overtime we was able to do so. So how many seconds will it take to completely to produce full clip consisting 12 darts? Our best effects were 8 seconds. But it can certainly take around 12-14 seconds to perform the same for the beginner.

One on the big factors while judging the performance could be the range with the darts. The manufacturers claimed how the best you can obtain is 75 feet. So we said to test. Did we reach 75 feet? Yes! Every time? No. After a great deal of tries there we were able to get to the ‘advertised’ range nonetheless it was really an accomplishment. If you are one who just loves to fire darts in open areas to view how far they can go, you'd be delighted every now and then, although not always. One major hindrance on the tall range claims would be the accuracy problem that is discussed later.

How accurate would it be?

While discussing accuracy with this edition, we have to consider two scenarios. One with normal use plus the other with barrel extension.

Now in case you don’t possess the barrel extension the truth would be below par. After repeated testing the precision left us wanting to get more. Yes we are in a position to achieve a dart velocity close to 75-80 feet per second but merely speaking the dart didn’t go where we wanted it to visit.

The second possibility is that you simply shoot with all the barrel extension. We can say there may be an improvement together with the accuracy, but could it be ever so drastic? No! But if accuracy is vital for your requirement, you're better off with all the barrel extension. However, there are particular downsides of utilizing it. Firstly there is usually a consider drop within the range on the darts. At best you will definately get a distance of 55 feet. Not more than that. Secondly, the dart velocity also needs a hit.

Our recommendation could be to not utilize barrel extension. The downsides were too over powering. But the barrel extension does add on the looks in long distance combat it will not be of which help.

Our final conclusion!

As far as being the design and ergonomics have concerns, this Nerf gun is proper up there. It is good to support, care is given to minute details and since package it truely does work and looks quite intimidating in your opponents. The accessories are often the main selling point with this edition. You can use them in wide array of scenarios. On the flipside, the weird trigger pull mechanism, sub-par accuracy and slow use include the clear negatives. You will need more darts and now we weren’t pleased with all the ones you receive. But taking all factors under consideration we will give video 8.5 rating beyond 10.
