N-Strike Elite is a current series of Nerf blasters that was released in stores on August 1, 2012. It is a direct successor from the popular N-Strike series.
It also seems that many of the current N-Strike Elite blasters are upgraded versions of regular N-Strike blasters. It is advertised by Nerf that N-Strike Elite blasters feature ranges up to seventy-five feet, and new Elite Darts compared to N-Strike’s advertised thirty-five foot stock range.
Versions of the blasters released in Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, China, Japan, Thailand, and the Philippines do not have the advertised seventy-five foot firing range. To keep with other countries’ safety standards, these gray trigger N-Strike Elite blasters only have a firing range of fifteen meters (about fifty feet).
