Fire Away

ne of the big­gest plea­sures of buy­ing a Nerf blaster is you get to tinker with the small at­tach­ments, which gives you a feel­ing of as­sem­bling your own gun. But the Stryfe comes packed as a sin­gle-piece blaster with the loaded ammo clip in­serted. The clip is an ap­pe­tizer that gives you a taste of all the power and agility, but with a ca­pac­ity to hold just six darts it leaves you want­ing for more. The slim and light­weight de­sign is im­pres­sive and easy to hold and op­er­ate with a sin­gle hand.The N-Strike Elite Stryfe is a fly­wheel mech­a­nism pow­ered, semi au­to­matic clip fed blaster with a 75ft range, ac­cu­rate to about 50ft.

The Stryfe is pow­ered by four Dou­ble AA bat­ter­ies. Housed just be­low the trig­ger are two other but­tons; one be­neath the trig­ger guard is the ac­cel­er­a­tor trig­ger that ac­ti­vates the fly wheels while the but­ton at the front is the clip re­lease catch. Nerf has also in­cor­po­rated some “fool-proof” fea­tures to avoid un­in­tended bat­tery drainage. For in­stance, the mo­tor will not start if the ammo clip is not loaded or the jam-clear­ance door is open. But my fa­vorite part about Stryfe is Cus­tomi­sa­tion. Be­ing com­pat­i­ble with al­most all stocks, sights and bar­rel at­tach­ments, one could add a bar­rel from the Re­tal­ia­tor or the Re­con or the Spec­tre REV-5, at­tach a stock and a grip han­dle along with the sights that com­pletely change the way the Stryfe looks.
