The Elite XD RapidStrike CS-18 is a re-release of the N-Strike Elite RapidStrike CS-18 that was released in 2014 under the N-Strike Elite series.

It comes packaged with a clear eighteen dart clip, eighteen Elite Darts, and instructions.


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.[1]

Reloading and firing

To reload the RapidStrike CS-18, release the acceleration trigger and remove any empty or unloaded clips by holding the clip release. Load a loaded clip back into the blaster.

Hold down the accelerator trigger and pull the firing trigger briefly to fire one dart, or hold the trigger for automatic firing. It may take a moment for the flywheels to come to full speed.
