The TerraScout Recon is a Nerf product that was released in 2017 under the N-Strike Elite series. It requires four "AA" batteries to be operated.

It comes packaged with the drone itself, its remote, a rechargeable battery and charger, a thirty-five dart drum, and thirty-five Elite Darts.

It is a Toys "R" Us exclusive.


The TerraScout Recon is a fully-automatic, clip system, remote controlled, blaster-like drone that has the ability to fire darts. It comes packaged with a 720p video camera, 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) 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


The TerraScout Recon is a re-release of the 2016 TerraScout.


  • The included black Elite Darts are only available with the TerraScout Recon.
  • The TerraScout's battery recharger is only compatible with American wall sockets, and will require a power adapter in countries with different plug types.
  • Despite being an Elite product, the thirty-five dart drum packaged with the TerraScout Recon does not have Elite badging. Therefore, the drum is most likely exactly the same as the Raider's drum.
  • The TerraScout Recon is, so far, the only N-Strike Elite product to be packaged with the thirty-five dart drum.
