Posted Image

This just showed up on the HvZ forums. Fits with rumors of a blaster with a SCAR-H style stock. Looks like it's flywheel based on the secondary trigger. Since there are already two semi-auto elite flywheel blasters and there is ample space behind the clip, I'm going to assume that this is probably a full auto version. In any case, it looks damn sexy.

EDIT: Here is the source link Called the Rapidstrike CS-18 apparently.

That clip certainly looks interesting i wonder if it might have a drum style aswell.
The blaster looks to be based around the stampede but it looks like Nerf/Hasbro have taken note with regards to minimising.
That stock looks like it might fold. Clip release button like the stryfe buy the looks of it.

Very interesting.

This is also the site that had the rest of the elite blaster before any of the line was originally released.

I'm really liking the design of the shell, and look at the grip in the front! I just hope this isn't kid size stock like the retaliator, and a little larger then the barricade. I cant wait to see what coop and Ice do this once they get their hands on it.

Damn, looks like MyLastDart was right.
Stampede on steroids! But why is everything flywheel powered nowadays?
No more electronic plungers? Hmph

Because they are really cheap to build and not complex to design. That's why Buzzbee has had them forever.

I think some credit to NoM might be due here..he posted this on his Facebook page earlier today, from that exact same site. This is also the site that had the rest of the elite blaster before any of the line was originally released.


What is everyone's obsession with giving and receiving credit for every little bullshit thing that is posted on here ? The OP has already said that he saw it on another forum and provided a link to the source. That is more than enough. The OP is not gaining anything by posting this so why the fuck do you care who saw it first and shared it on Facebook ?

I just remembered MLD's first post about the Centurion. He mistakenly described it as a full auto blaster with a 3 round burst option - then retracted that info and corrected himself.

This could be that blaster, and that might be what the secondary trigger is! This gives me hope that it's not flywheel.

From looking at the image, I can see the bulges near the front of the blaster that are much akin to those on the Stryfe and Rayven. Right where the orange tac rail on the side is. These "bulges" are the cavities for the flywheel compartment. I am pretty sure this is a flywheel blaster. I personally love flywheels.

An interesting design. From my point of view, it looks like a cross between the stryfe and the stampede. It definitely seems like it will be flywheel powered. I'm most interested in the clear clip though, and if that's how the clips are going to look from now on.

True, I see that now.

I like my Stryfe a lot, I suppose my main issue is this: What separates this from the Stryfe, really? I get a really nice RoF with my Stryfe, full auto isn't a big selling point for me.
With a reinforced Recon stock, it's pretty comfy, too.

That looks like the blaster those clear clips belong to that we saw pop up a few days ago. At least we're not getting more clear crap.

As I look at it, this is almost a minimized Stampede, no long ass front barrel. It also has an adjustable stock based on the weird lever-button thing, the Stryfe Mag release, no 'Iron-Sights' because of the sling mount is in place of the "Stampede Iron-Sight" location, but there is a front sight it looks like. I am personally looking forward to this. If there a specific location (Forum, Sales Site, Website, ect.) I can find updates on new blasters like these? Hasbro keeps on impressing us all.

These are all good ones.
Their are more great ones out there, but this is what I thought of off the top of my head.

I really am loving this. But I'm looking at the picture, and just behind the front bottom tac rail, there appears to be possibly another grip. Maybe Hasbro is getting smart and adding in a place for our second hand to go to steady the blaster? I could be wrong on this entirely, but that's what it appears to be.

If it is indeed a flywheel blaster, it makes me wonder how fast the ROF could really be with flywheels, seeing as they slow down a bit every time you fire.

If Nerf used flywheels in the design, hopefully they redesigned the flywheels somehow, like giving them a larger OD or better balance. It would be kind of lame if this used the exact same motors, flywheels and batteries as a Stryfe.
Also, am I the only one who is really curious about the darts pictured? Something tells me that the black tips are a more dense rubber, and might be designed to maximize range in high powered blasters.

It looks really cool, but I'd likely shy away from it if it uses flywheels. Not really sure what it can do that a Stryfe cannot. My beef with electric blasters is that they take longer to fire. The flywheel based ones need a second or two to spin up and the Stampede starts priming when you pull the trigger delaying a good half second or so, sort of like a really slow open bolt machine gun.

I am thinking that this may be different from the Stryfe and Rayven in that it uses the new "Mega Darts" introduced to us in this thread with the Centurion. The flywheels could be designed to shoot the larger diameter darts, and this would explain the redesigned clip.

That is highly improbable, unless the picture's dimensions are way off. On Nerf Clip System blasters, the pistol grip from the bottom to the trigger guard is as long as a streamline dart. Measuring this blaster's darts and handle as they appear on my screen puts both of them at 3/8." They are the same length, therefore, this blaster cannot be using darts that are four inches long unless the handle is four inches long.

This was a borderline speculation thread; now that we're trying to deduce design by relative measurements within a picture, that border has been crossed.

Way to ruin a thread dude.
