It cannot be purchased in retail stores. The only way to obtain it is through second-hand websites and stores.
It comes packaged with ten Whistler Darts and instructions.
The Barricade is a battery-operated semi-automatic flywheel revolver-style blaster. It features a revolving cylinder that holds up to ten darts at a time. It also features compatibility with detachable shoulder stocks, and has a single tactical rail on top of the blaster. A jam door in front of this tactical rail allows the user to clear dart jams. Batteries load onto the left side of the blaster; a power switch can be found under the battery compartment.
The blaster's flywheels will begin spooling up when it is turned on; battery life can be conserved if the blaster is turned off while reloading. These will deactivate if the jam door is opened, to prevent injury. Jams can be a problem for the blaster, and the firing trigger can end up stuck as a result. This can be solved by turning off the blaster while clearing the jam. A stuck trigger can be fixed by fiddling with it until it pops back out.
The Barricade can be conveniently dual-wielded, due to the blaster only requiring a single hand for operation.

The Barricade was first released in Australia.
The Barricade has been released with the following color schemes:
- N-Strike (yellow, black, silver, and orange)
- Gear Up (orange, black, gray, and orange)
- Sonic Series (clear green and orange)
- Transformers Optimus Prime (blue, purple, black, gray, and orange)
- Transformers Bumblebee (yellow, black, and orange)
A popular modification to the Barricade involves editing the chamber and replacing the cylinder with a clip well from another blaster. This converts it to act as a clip system blaster and accept universal Nerf clips.
Another popular modification is a voltage modification, to allow the use of a higher-power flywheel motor and batteries, in order to beef up firing speeds and ranges.
- The Barricade is known as the Auto Barricade RV-10 in Japan.
- There are four mistakes on the Barricade's Canadian packaging: the iron sight is filled in and solid, the muzzle is longer and appears as a flat cylinder without the crease, the ready indicator is filled in, and the stock attachment on the blaster is black.
- A bootleg of the Barricade RV-10 was released by Leyuan, a Chinese pirating company. It was renamed the Raging Fire and all Nerf-related imagery was removed from the packaging and blaster. However, "Barricade RV-10" is still molded onto the side of the blaster. This notably includes shoulder stock and scope accessories.
- This bootleg was re-released under another name, Sharp Popper, including accessories from the Nerf Recon CS-6.
- This blaster can fire Streamline Darts backwards due to its lack of dart posts. Darts fired this way will most likely fishtail out of control.
- The Retaliator shoulder stock and Demolisher shoulder stock both have problems with the Barricade, and may come loose and fall off during use.
- The Barricade's flywheels are more powerful than most other N-Strike blasters, in order to accommodate needing to squeeze Whistler Darts through its flywheels.
