The Rapid Red is a clip system Nerf blaster that was released in fall of 2014 under the Secrets & Spies sub-series.[1] It requires four "AA" batteries to operate.

It comes packaged with a twelve dart clip, a message decoder, six Collectible Darts, and six Message Darts.[1]


The Rapid Red is a semi-automatic flywheel system blaster that resembles the N-Strike Elite Stryfe. It features a tactical rail and two strap points. Its exclusive magazine is translucent red on the right side, which allows the user to read any secret messages written on loaded Message Darts.

It advertises a firing range of up to seventy-five feet.[1]

Reloading and firing

To reload the Rapid Red, load up to twelve darts in the provided twelve dart clip. Insert the clip into the blaster.

Pull the acceleration trigger to rev up the flywheels and pull the firing trigger to fire a dart.

Maximum flywheel speed is required to achieve maximum range.


  • The Rapid Red is the first clip system Rebelle blaster.
  • The UK version of the Rapid Red is extremely unreliable and suffers from jams often, especially on low batteries.[citation needed]
