Elite 2.0 is a series of Nerf blasters that was released in fall of 2020.

Details

Elite 2.0, as its name suggests, is a spiritual successor to the 2012 N-Strike Elite series. Its blasters feature a similar design to those seen in later releases of N-Strike Elite, with the exception that the blasters are now teal and orange in color, rather than blue and orange. Most blasters include double their intended firing capacity worth of darts.

History

Elite 2.0 was first leaked online in early 2020, with imageless listings for most of its products popping up on numerous online retail stores. Starting in June, images of of the blasters gradually began to surface.

Reception to the series has been very mixed. While the inclusion of additional darts and the overall ergonomics of Elite 2.0 blasters have been praised, the changes to how the blaster is assembled has been highly criticized. Many of the first blasters released under the Elite 2.0 series were assembled in a way that made modification difficult. While blasters still still held together by standard screws and/or pressure clips, as introduced in the Alpha Strike line of blasters, many others were also welded together. The quality of the plastic used in production has also been called "thin", compared to previous or other releases.

Trivia

  • The number code system for Elite 2.0 closely resembles that of the Alpha Strike series, rather than N-Strike's system.
    • Despite this, none of the blasters themselves feature their number codes on the shell, only their name.
  • Interestingly, despite being a follow-up to N-Strike Elite, the word "N-Strike" is not present in Elite 2.0's name.
