This is an article about the 2013 Rayven Stinger. For other uses, see Rayven.

The Rayven Stinger is a Nerf blaster that was released in 2013 under the N-Strike Elite series. It requires four "AA" batteries to be operated.

It comes packaged with a twelve dart clip and twenty-five Elite Darts.[1]

It is a Sam's Club exclusive.[citation needed]


The Rayven Stinger, as its name suggests, is a re-release of the 2013 N-Strike Elite Rayven with a yellow color scheme. It has two tactical rails: one on top of the blaster's integrated carrying handle and one on the right side of the blaster. It is compatible with barrel extensions. It also features three sling points, one above the muzzle and two at the end of the blaster. It is considered the lightweight version of the Rayven because of the Firefly Tech clip batteries increasing weight.

Like other N-Strike Elite blasters, it advertises a firing range of up to seventy-five feet (twenty-two meters).
