The Electric Gun “Lightning”, Nerf Rayven knockoff (Photos)

The Electric Gun “Lightning”

Haha wow, this has gotta be one of the closet knockoffs to a products that I’ve ever seen. I spotted it on Taobao. I wonder if the motors are stronger then the Rayven’s?


How ever you more accessories with it then the normal Rayven. You can 20 darts, which are 10 Streamline looking darts, and 10 suction darts. The mag can only hold 12 darts, but it takes either of the kind of dart that came with it. The barrel attachment is a fun add on, and looks to be shorter then most N-Strike & N-Strike Elite barrel attachments. It also comes with sling, which is super handy when holding this blaster.

Theres no Firefly tech on the mag, but the logo they have on theres is awfully close to Nerf’s Firefly Tech logo. Once again, for more photos click here.

In my attempt to see if any of the major USA retailers are selling exclusive store blasters, I figured I’d gather up all the online listings I could find. Also since we don’t really have a name for these batch of blasters, mags, and darts that just got released, I’ll just be sticking them in the “2012–2013 Winter release” category for now.

Rayven CS-18 Basic Nerf Review (Write Up)


After about 5 months of this the Rayven being available to the USA public (about 3 for the worldwide audience) I finally take a look at a fairly new blaster. It’s part of Nerf’s new “Firefly Tech” series, whose lineup features the Rayven and Vortex Lumitron blasters. The Rayven CS-18 is a flywheel, battery powered blaster that comes with an 18 dart clip. Is this just another flywheel blaster, is the firefly tech just a gimmick? A lot of HvZ players are praising this, and could it’s role replace the Alpha Trooper’s? Check out the review for answers to those questions and more.

I would also just like to deeply thank Nerf for sending me two Rayven’s to review and keep. Thanks so much!

The Rayven CS-18 Tenets (HvZ Forum Write Up)

Pic from the HvZ forums

Another solid read off the HvZ forums. Original topic is here.

After reading some of the other Tenets I thought I would do one on the Rayven. This is my first write up of this style so remember I am a bit of a n00b at this, but I can take criticism too.

Rayven Tenets

So you finally got a Rayven have you? Good, the Rayven can be a great addition to your arsenal but there are some things to remember when using the Rayven.
