looks like a recon merged with a raider
Also will this be the 18 round clip that is supposed to be in the Stampede's Mission Kit?
If these two guns pics came out today, I wonder when the stampede's pic will come out? Because nerf said nothing about these, yet they want a lot of hype about the stampede.
That's interesting how it doesn't include a stock, and the 18-dart drum seems somewhat impractical. Why have an 18 when you have a 35? Also, the slam-fire handle doesn't have a "wall" on the front end, making a hand susceptible to slipping off.
exactly but in my opinion the 18 shot clip could fit inside a longstrike stock because of how slim it is dont u ?
@Michael well the cocking mechanism stops the handle from "slipping off" and you would know that if you have even ever owned a raider or recon...
Are the new Alpha trooper and specter fake or real and if they are real when well they come out.
Amir,So far, these blasters have only been spotted on websites but not yet announced officially by Nerf. No confirmed product release dates yet either.We will just need to keep a lookout for more info, or when the blasters eventually appear on store shelves. :)
I definitely prefer this to the Raider. It looks smaller and more compact, meaning it has greater agility. The 18 dart clip also contributes to this. Looks to me like a must-buy for any assault soldier. I, as a sniper and scout, might even want it if it has good range! ;)
Finally. Nerf is FINALLY being sensible and giving a DECENT gun a shotgun grip. Yes LSFG, I'm looking at you.
I really hope they swap the front nub for a threaded one, that's one thing that really disappointed me about the raider. It's sad that the recon is the only gun that accepts both barrel and stock swaps.
This item has been confirmed. It was on Nerf's Facebook. Idk if anyone saw it. They said August along with the "Clear the way" release dates.
look at how short the back is, definitely reverse plunger..
that is definetly a guni would want
Looks like you could attach the Spectre REV-5 parts onto this one. That would look awesome!
This gun will be available in August this year. It has been announced officially on the Nerf Facebook page
I have confirmation that the Alpha Trooper will be hitting retail in August, and I found the price. On taobao.com, it costs $40. So the Alpha trooper will cost $35 - $40.
@mahad At my local target store they have it in there catalog for 19.99, I went there and they didnt have it in yet. They didnt know when they would get it in tho.
i live in the us and it is at target for 30 bucks
I found this at a target store in the U.S. today, for only $20, but didn't buy it, so that's all i can really confirm
I recently bought it for $19.99 at a target here in south carolina. It works really well, but a shorter range than the recon. The 18 drum mag is awesome because its light but has more ammo!
When will the trooper come out in the UK?
Sam,Sorry, i've no idea of the Alpha Trooper availability in the UK. Perhaps you could check with the dept stores around your area.
Hey SGNerfAny ideas when will Alpha Trooper be out?
Jdcheck,The Nerf Alpha Trooper is already available in the USA.For the Singapore market, no news yet on its availability here.
I was thinking of gluing a longshot front gun trigger handle to the pirming mechanism on the alpha trooper so its like a mini raider. i wonder if it will work...
Agreed that it looks like a Raider/Recon Merge, but, It lacks a shoulder stock when it has an obvious place for one!
SG Nerf, when will the alpha trooper come in brunei?
wafi,I've no idea of the Nerf stock availability in Brunei, perhaps you can check with the dept stores around your area.
i saw the nerf trooper for $23best nerf gun ever .i did add my scope off my longshot and add my friends recon stock(he hasent found out)love the idea of the 18 barrell dart drum i did think it was going to be bigger but it is good for space thobest nerf gun
how much is it in Singapore??
Anonymous,SGD49.90... but they are now all sold out in Singapore.
I have waited 3 years for this gun. will if come in to stocks?
