This is the latest blaster to be added to the Nerf N-Strike range, it follows the design principles of the Nerf Longshot and Recon, but adds on even more features and capabilities.
The Raider is a magazine-fed blaster with a spring powered reverse plunger system. It uses a pump action priming mechanism via a front grip handle.
It comes with a 35-dart drum magazine (along with 35 Streamline foam darts), this is perhaps the first time such a magazine system has been created for a Nerf blaster and it provides incredible ammo capacity. Yes, this drum magazine is also compatible with the Nerf Longshot and Recon too!
In addition, the Raider also comes with a unique firing feature called the "Slam Fire" mode. This new firing mode works like this: Hold down the trigger, then pump the front grip repeatedly to fire a constant stream of foam darts, the rate-of-fire (RoF) will depend on how fast you pump the front grip.
With some practice, firing tests have shown that it is possible to achieve a steady RoF of up to 2-3 shots per second! The Raider's average firing range is approx. 25-30 ft, around the same as a stock Longshot or Recon.
By combining the awesome 35-dart drum magazine and the new "Slam Fire" mode, the Nerf Raider allows equipped players to outshoot and outlast their opponents in fast-paced close-quarter Nerf games!
