For information on the blaster's standard features, see Stockade.

The Elite XD Stockade is a re-release of the N-Strike Elite Stockade that was re-released in 2014 under the N-Strike Elite series. It requires three "AA" batteries to operate.

It comes packaged with a detachable shoulder stock, ten Elite Darts, and instructions.

It is a Toys "R" Us exclusive in Canada.[citation needed]


As its name suggests, the Elite XD Stockade features improved "Elite XD" internals, which boosts its firing power. However, it never got the Elite XD paint job, making the packaging the only way to tell the two blasters apart.

It advertises a firing range of up to ninety feet in the US (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 that, and like other re-released Elite XD blasters, it features the same performance as its original counterpart.

Reloading and firing

To reload the Stockade, first turn off the power to the blaster by flipping the power switch/safety lock. Load up to ten darts in the blaster's cylinder. Turn the blaster back on and pull the trigger to fire.

Try to restrict turning on the power switch to only when firing or preparing to fire. This will preserve battery power and playing time.

This blaster will not accept darts that have a head larger than its body, such as Micro Darts or Whistler Darts, due to their dart heads being too big to fit into the flywheels.
