The TerraScout is a Nerf product that was released in fall of 2016 under the N-Strike Elite series. It requires four "AA" batteries to be operated.[2]

It comes packaged with the drone itself, its remote, a rechargeable battery and charger, an eighteen dart clip, and eighteen Elite Darts.[2]


The TerraScout is a fully-automatic[2], clip system, remote controlled, blaster-like drone that has the ability to fire darts. It comes packaged with a 720p video camera[2], which can be equipped and viewed through the remote on an integrated LCD screen; this can be doubled as a portable aiming device. It has two tactical rails: one on its built-in handle and one below the muzzle. It is also compatible with barrel extensions.

The TerraScout is all-terrain (except for wet conditions[2]) and can be used indoors and outdoors. It features four switchable channels, allowing for multiple TerraScout units to work at the same time.

Some clip sizes may be too long or too heavy for the TerraScout and may cause movement problems (mainly due to angling upwards or downwards for firing, or the exposed clip bumping into furniture indoors).

Official description


In 2017, a new version of the TerraScout was released, known as the TerraScout Recon. The new version features a black color scheme and comes with a thirty-five dart drum.


  • This is the first Nerf product that can move, fire darts, and record video footage all at the same time.
  • The TerraScout is suggested to be a spiritual successor to the Combat Creatures TerraDrone, being superior to it in mobility, firing rate, and terrain adjustment.
  • It is the first Nerf drone to be compatible with barrel extensions, tactical rails, and the clip system.
  • While the Cam ECS-12 includes an SD card for its camera, the TerraScout does not.
  • The TerraScout's battery recharger is only compatible with American wall sockets, and will require a power adapter in countries with different plug types.
