The Basic Nerf N-Strike Elite Rayven CS-18 Review (Write Up)

The box art for the Nerf N-Strike Elite Rayven CS-18

Back in late 2011/early 2012, Nerf released the N-Strike Rayven CS-18. After critical acclaim from both stock users and modders a like, it seems like it was an easy decision to bring the popular blaster into the Elite line a year later. The suggested retail price for the Rayven was $29.99 USD, while the suggested price for the Elite Rayven is $34.99 USD, about $5 more. Is this blaster worth the extra money? If I already own and like the Rayven, should I get the Elite one? I’ll answer those questions and more in this review.

If your not familar with the original Rayven and it’s features, check out my review of the original Rayven CS-18 to keep up with this one. I won’t mention to many features about the Elite Rayven, since the old Rayven has the exact same outsides and shell as the Elite one.

While on the outside the Elite Rayven only has a new (but good looking!) paint job, it has has small improvements over the original, which make a big difference in Nerf games. Keep reading to check out my Elite Rayven CS-18 review in full, complete with photos and videos showing it off in action.

The Basic Nerf Elite Masterkey Battle Tested Video Review (w/Game Footage)

I’ll be having a write up review of this blaster coming in a few days as well, but for now here’s a video review on the Elite Masterkey I created. I must say, it’s quite the good blaster, and has quickly become my favorite. I’ve even included some clips from some mini HvZ games I’ve played in the review to show you how effective it is. Keep your eyes tuned to my Youtube channel and blog for gameplay in Nerf Wars and mini Humans vs. Zombies games with me using this as a primary.

The New/Old Buzz Bee Tek 6 Pack (Photo)


I’ve seen this in Walmart for the past couple of weeks, and I thought it was an interesting combo pack. The one on the left is the old design, and the one on the right is the new design. I know it’s not ground breaking news, but the Tek 6 used to be my favorite blaster at one point. And I also have a review on it here. Pricing was $9.99 on this combo pack.


The BlasterPro Pump Action S2500 Basic Nerf Review (Write Up)


The BlasterPro line is a new line by the creators of Xploder. The big differences between Xploderz and BlasterPro is the more realistic gun look, and finally the usage of triggers! If your not familiar with Xploderz, their line featured the usage of soaking and growing your ammo, and ranges higher then any stock Nerf blaster can hit.

This will be a bit different from my usual Nerf reviews. I’ll be going over blaster features, battle usage, user tips, and price talk. Hit the jump for all this and more! The BlasterPro Pump Action S2500 retails for $29.99 USD. Keep reading for the review.

I still haven’t reviewed the Vortex series or any of it’s blasters, so I figured why not start out with the latest Vortex blaster, the Pyragon? I’ve had a good amount of use with all the Vortex blasters actually, but haven’t had the time to write up review on any of them, so be on the lookout for reviews on those in the future. I’ll be reviewing it’s features, usages in Nerf Wars & HvZ, and even give some user tips.

How does the Pyragon compare to the N-Strike Raider CS-35, and what does the Vortex line have to do with the N-Strike Line of 2009? Keep reading to find out, and thanks to Nerf for sending me this!
