For information on the blaster's standard features, see RapidStrike CS-18.
As its name suggests, the Elite XD RapidStrike claims to feature improved "Elite XD" internals, which boosts its overall firing power. It advertises an increased firing range of up to ninety feet in the U.S. (compared to the original Elite version's seventy-five feet), or twenty-seven meters in Europe (compared to the original Elite version's twenty meters).
Despite this, and like other re-released Elite XD blasters, it features the same performance as its original counterpart.
The Elite XD RapidStrike CS-18 was first spotted on July 11, 2014 by Southern Brisbane Nerf Club.
The Elite XD RapidStrike CS-18 has been released with the following color schemes:
- Elite XD (blue, white, black, and orange)
- "Orange-stock" Elite XD (blue, white, black, and orange, with unpainted stock)
