Indoor Nerf War Session Recap Post (Photos & Videos) (Feb 17, 2013)

A group shot of the players, minus me, after the games.

So I know this posted is going up a bit late, but better later then never as some say. On this Sunday, I invited some friends over to play indoors at my church for some Nerf action. Plenty of close quarters fast paced action. I used the Elite Rayven and Stryfe through the day.

My first ever timelapse, Setting Up for a Day of Nerf

Here’s the gameplay videos that I got of the day and my input/mini commentary on each game.

TDM – 5 Outs & 3 Headshots (Elite Rayven 8.4v) (Game 1)

Our team gets great position early, and I manage to get 5 different people out, 3 of them on headshots. Our team didn’t get anyone out toooo early, and stayed pretty focused in staying alive and holding position.

TDM – Losing Position (Rayven 12.6v) (Game 1 Alternate Angle)

I strapped on my spare GoPro to an certain buddy of mine. She’s play in a couple of day long HvZ games, but never in a Nerf War. It’s interesting to see how composed she was, but she seemed to get a big case of tunnel vision and I manage to take advantage of an error of her’s to end the game.

Nerf War TDM – Staring Down the Enemy (Stryfe 8.4v) (Game 2)

I switch to the Stryfe for the next couple of games. We rush and grab a pivotal position, and then spit out a bunch of foam at the other team when they get out in the open. Indoor games can go downhill fast.

That awkward moment when….

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.

Nerf N-Strike Elite Rayven posted for Sale on Toys R Us for $39.99

N-Strike Elite Rayven CS-18 blaster

People from around the USA have been confirming sightings of the new N-Strike Elite Rayven in Toys R Us. I haven’t really heard any price talk, so I guess it would be safe to confirm that the suggested retail price for this is $34.99 USD? But $40 for a Rayven seems a bit pricey overall, so if you want it cheaper is a discount of some sort or just wait until it comes out somewhere else.

Whatever the case, you can buy it here from their site. Don’t forget the 4 double a (AA) batteries you need to power the blaster, and the 3 more you need if you want to use the magazine light.

Nerf officially announces N-Strike Elite Rayven & Stryfe on Facebook


It may be about a month away, but around here the countdown to 2013 has begun. Hitting shelves around the world in 2013, the brand new N-Strike Elite Stryfe blaster and newly updated N-Strike Elite Rayven blaster will add serious power to your collection in the new year. The N-Strike Elite Stryfe blasters’s semi-automatic firing action makes one-handed blasting easy while being able to unload up to 6 darts in just 3 seconds! The N-Strike Elite Rayven blaster has been newly updated to feature Elite styling and long-distance performance. Like this post if you plan on adding one of these blasters to your Nerf collection next year. (Please note: availability and timing will vary by country/state/city)

Since the Stryfe is already out in the USA, does that mean we’ll get the Elite Rayven before the year ends? That paint job is super slick.

German site reveals new Box Art, “publication” dates of some N-Strike Elite & Super Soakers Blasters

The apparent box art of the N-Strike Elite Rayven

Thanks to the new Nerf blog Tactical Nerf, we have some more photos of upcoming Nerf & Super Soaker products.

While searching the web, I came across a German website that contains several Elite blasters not yet announced, their *European* prices, and their release dates.

After our friends at Urban Taggers posted that Hasbro Australia had released the release dates for the below blasters, I am fairly certain of these dates. The German word, “Veröffentlichung”, meaning “publication” in English, apparently shows the release date of the following blasters. Keep in mind that these dates are still highly speculative at this point.

Stockade: January 31, 2013
Rampage (With Shield!): January 31, 2013
Firestrike: January 31, 2013
Strongarm: January 31, 2013
Stryfe: February 28, 2013
Elite Jolt: February 28, 2013
Elite Rayven: February 28, 2013
