The Rampage, like its predecessor, is able to slam fire and has digital camo detailed on it. It features two tactical rails on top of the blaster, as well as a clip point on its handle for the use of a strap or other carrying accessories. It is compatible with detachable shoulder stocks, despite not coming packaged with one. At the end of the blaster and on the stock attachment area, there is a priming indicator. Its jam door is located on the right side of the blaster. It has a secret dart holder in the handle. The Rampage has a rifled barrel.
The Rampage has a side-loading system, which can be uncomfortable if the user is using an eighteen dart clip. Removing the clip can be challenging to some people, and it can block their view if they are right-handed. However, the drum can also be used as a shield to block incoming darts.
It’s time to take your N-Strike battling to the next level with the Rampage Blaster! Boasting a powerful 25-dart drum magazine, the Rampage Blaster gives you an incredible rapid-fire blitz, firing revolutionary Elite Darts at a range of 75 feet. Release a storm of darts at your target by sliding the slam-fire handle repeatedly while you hold down the trigger! The drum magazine works with other Clip System blasters (sold separately) and the Elite Darts work with any Elite blaster and most original N-Strike blasters (sold separately). For the final word in today’s blaster technology, you need the Elite customization and interchangeable parts of the Rampage blaster!
It is a direct successor of the 2009 N-Strike Raider Rapid Fire CS-35 .
The Rampage has been released with the following color schemes:
- N-Strike Elite (blue, white, black, gray and orange)
- N-Strike Elite running change “economy” variant / Elite XD(blue, white, black, gray and orange; sports considerably fewer paint operations; the included twenty-five dart drum is also subject to similar changes)
- Sonic ICE (clear blue, gray and orange)
It was offered in a special value pack including the Rampage itself, the twenty-five dart drum, an extra N-Strike Elite eighteen dart clip, and forty-three Elite Darts.
Reloading and firing
To reload the Rampage, pull the priming handle back and press the clip release button to remove any loaded drums in the blaster. Load up to twenty-five Elite Darts, Streamline Darts, or a combination of the two into the provided twenty-five dart drum. Load the drum into the drum connector, then push the priming handle forward.
Pull the trigger to fire a dart.
To slam fire, hold the trigger down whilst cycling the priming handle back and forward as quickly as possible.
It is extremely important when slam firing to cycle the priming handle fully forward and backward; this avoids jams that could potentially ruin darts.
- In the teaser video, the Rampage is equipped with a Lightningstorm shoulder stock which is visible in certain close-up shots of the blaster.
- Early mock-ups of the blaster included a tactical rail shield that would have been much like the Blast Shield or the Nitron shield. The idea was dropped due to unknown reasons.
- The Rampage’s packaging actually shows the blaster’s handle all the way forward, rather than in the Raider CS-35, Quick 16, or the Alpha Trooper CS-18’s being held back partially while the digital dart is shown as being fired out on the box.
- On the instruction manual picture, instead of saying Rampage, it says Raider CS-35.
- The differences between the standard and Elite XD variant can be easily told apart from the packaging. The original version depicts an older Nerf model, while the newer version features a younger Nerf model. The blaster depicted on the original version’s packaging sports prototype colors, whereas the “economy” version’s packaging depicts a blaster sporting a deco with varying degrees of accuracy to the actual product.
