A photo for the New Elite Havoc Vulcan

In a strange and surprising news appearance, Argos UK has put up a listing for an “Elite Vulcan”. More info, a product description, and my speculations can be found below.

Thanks to Reddit for the link.

According to the above image, it features a new paintjob similar the White Rough Cut, and the White Stryfe.

Mr. K of the Adult Fans of Nerf has also recently posted in the Reddit thread saying “Wtf, they literally told us they were not going to make an elite Vulcan”.

Strangeness all around. I’m not doubting the legitimacy of this listing or item though. But what’s also odd to me is that Elite Darts are picture in the photo above, but Whistler Darts are mentioned instead of the product description. Could this blaster just be a repaint in a similar vein to the “Elite Jolt”? Whatever the case, I’ll keep you all updated with info as we get it regarding the blaster. Product description can be found below.

  1. I wanted it in blue, I aslo imagined a Vulcan successor with a better battery efficiency and faster rof, like the evolution of the rapidstrike from the stampede.

    1. Well, there are many more differences between the Stampede and the Rapidstrike then there will probably be between the Havoc and the Elite Havoc. The flywheel-system for instance.

  2. Fishy to say the least. However, I felt the same way about the Rayven Stinger, and it was real.

    If I was Nerf I’d release a blue-and-white version first before this repaint – although the repaint looks super cool. I’d also use C batteries, not D’s to reduce the weight.

    On the other hand, if this was Elite, it would set a record as the first Elite blaster to use a motorized direct plunger, which modders would love.

    I still smell a rat though. Those Elite darts don’t look right in there, and there’s not 25.

    So far we have:
    – Rough Cut
    – Stryfe
    – Now this Vulcan

    1. I have a handful of last-gen belts, and they’re all like that; something about ease of loading and unloading and visual checking or some such.

  3. Has anyone considered that perhaps Nerf is a business wanting to make money? They probably have a ton of shells that they want to get rid of. All it takes is some marginal improvements (slightly better wiring in this case), paint it blue or white, call it Elite, then watch the money roll in on dead stock.

  4. There’s one thing that makes me think this is more than just a repaint: The price. I doubt that the new darts are the only reason for it. Was there really such a price difference between the normal Barrel Break and the Elite Barrel Break?

    Like

    1. Originally no but TRU jacked up the original Barrel Break to $27.99 while keeping the “Elite” version at $24.99 I’d like to see this new Vulcan state-side regardless of its Elite status – I just like the Vulcan and I’d be willing to mod a new one b/c if I screw it up I can easily get a replacement.
