Design, Performance and Ergonomics
The Nerf N-Strike Elite Rampage is one of the best Nerf guns available on the market. Although it has a reduced drum capacity from the Raider model (25 vs 35), the gun features a lot of advances in terms of performance and design. It comes in the classic colors of Nerf guns: blue and orange. The gun also has grey accents. If you want a gun to impress your friends, this is the one. When it comes to design, the blaster features a vibrant yet familiar look, resembling comic book guns, yet with a more subtle style. A cool thing to mention about the design of this gun is that it has a transparent barrel. This allows you to see the darts when using it. Factor in the fact that the handle provides you with a great grip and you have all you could ever want from a Nerf gun in terms of ergonomics.
Performance-wise, the blaster does what Nerf guns do best. It tops its predecessors. The blaster is light, thus easier to handle in battle. Given the fact that it is compatible with most of the N-Strike Elite accessories, it can become anything you want it to be. But the gone alone, without any improvements, is a sufficient source of power so you don’t need to consider upgrading it.
Based on user reviews, the blaster almost never jams, nor does it have any other issues. Reaching a maximum of 75 feet when shooting, it makes for an impressive dart-blasting weapon. This is one of the aspects in which the old Raider gun did not do so well. Because the Rampage Blaster was upgraded with a new direct plunger system, it can offer you incredible range, no matter the angle. Take advantage of its two fire modes and spice up your skills.
Another great aspect of the Nerf Elite Rampage Blaster is that it is easy to use. If you are a beginner and want a gun that feel light, does not jam and allows you to improve your skills, the Nerf N-Strike Elite Rampage Blaster will deliver.
Did you know that the blaster has a secret feature? The handle has a secret slot in which you can hide one dart.
The Nerf N-Strike Elite Rampage Blaster came as a better solution to a flagship Nerf gun and ended up impressing everyone. It has a great design, an affordable price and a lot of cool new features. The Nerf N-Strike Elite Rampage Blaster is the gun to add to your Nerf collection. That is, if you haven’t done it already. Beginner or expert, you will enjoy using and showing off the blaster for sure. With a slam-fire feature, accuracy and lightness, the rampage nerf gun makes for a great choice for both children and adults.
Overall, in terms of design, performance and ergonomics, there are no complaints with the gun. On the contrary, the gun matches the level of quality you would expect from a Nerf blaster.
