The Rampage is a Nerf blaster that was released on August 1, 2012, under the N-Strike Elite series.

It comes packaged with a twenty-five dart drum, twenty-five Elite Darts, and instructions.

Details

The Rampage is a pump-action clip system blaster. Clips and drums load into the blaster horizontally. This can block the user's view if they are right-handed. The blaster is able to be slam fired and has a rifled barrel. It is compatible with detachable shoulder stocks, despite not coming packaged with one. On the end of the shoulder stock attachment point is a priming indicator, which turns orange when the blaster is primed. A single dart can be stored in the blaster's grip.

It features two tactical rails on top of the blaster, as well as a strap point built into its trigger grip.

Using an eighteen dart clip may cause some discomfort, due to the way clips are horizontally fed into the blaster.

Official description

History

The Rampage is a direct successor to the 2009 N-Strike Raider Rapid Fire CS-35.

Early mock-ups of the blaster[1] included a tactical rail shield that would have been much like the Blast Shield or the Nitron shield. The idea was dropped due to unknown reasons.

In 2014, a clear blue Rampage was released under the Sonic ICE series.

In 2015, a variant was released with Elite XD range claims, and featured a color scheme very similar to the original blaster, with notably fewer paint operations.

In 2019, the Rampage was re-released with a white color scheme, a Retaliator shoulder stock, and an eighteen dart clip instead of a twenty-five dart drum.

Color schemes

The Rampage has been released with the following color schemes:

Value packs

It was offered in a special value pack including the Rampage itself, the twenty-five dart drum, an extra N-Strike Elite eighteen dart clip, and forty-three Elite Darts.

Trivia

  • In the Rampage's teaser video, the Rampage is equipped with a Lightningstorm shoulder stock. This is visible in certain close-up shots of the blaster.
  • In the Rampage's instruction manual picture, the blaster in the instructional images is labeled as the Raider CS-35.
  • The differences between the standard and Elite XD variants can be easily told apart from the packaging. The original version depicts an older model, while the newer version features a younger model. The blaster depicted on the original version's packaging sports prototype colors, whereas the "economy" version's packaging depicts a blaster sporting a deco with varying degrees of accuracy to the actual product.[2]
  • When a drum is loaded into the Rampage, it can double as a shield to prevent getting hit from dart fire.
