Rapidstrike Images found on Baidu. You can see the XD distances on the bottom right of the box.

The “Elite XD” branding first appeared on the Elite Demolisher 2-In-1 Blaster box. The XD standing for “Extra Distance” and boasting ranges of up to 90 feet instead of the usual 75 feet ranges of the Elite line. And now according to my public relations contacts at Nerf, the XD distance and branding is here to stay! You can also see XD branded Retaliator, Strongarm, and Stockade (boasting up to 85 feet) below. These blasters, and the Rapidstrike above, also have new paintjobs.

I’m personally on the excited side for these. Normal flat ranges for Elite blasters were 40-50 feet with Elite Darts. Could we 50-60 feet flat with these newly revamped blasters? Stay tuned to my blog for more on that in the future!

  1. K so they have a BLUE Stockade in the new open packaging boasting 85ft ranges, I thought the old N-Strike Elite BLUE colour scheme was going away and being replace by their new inconsistent orange, white, blue, “this blaster will be this colour and that one will be that colour because we feel like it” rainbow strike colour SCHEMES.
