Nerf N-Strike Elite Rayven CS-18 Review (Hasbro)

What It Is

The Nerf N-Strike Elite Rayven CS-18 has gotten a new color scheme of blue, white, and orange, but it still features the same glow-in-the-dark fun and long-distance shooting. Kids can light up their Nerf battles with the N-Strike Elite Rayven CS-18. The Rayven is a foam dart blaster with glow-in-the-dark darts and unique Firefly-inspired styling. The acceleration trigger on this 18-dart blaster lets kids fire off a whole clip with semi-automatic speed. It comes with an 18-dart Firefly Tech clip that charges 18 glow-in-the-dark darts. Simply load the clip with the darts, turn on the light to charge up the darts, reinsert the clip into the blaster, and you're ready to go. To fire, hold down the acceleration trigger to get the motor going, then pull and launch the darts. As with most N-Strike blasters, the Tactical Rail lets kids add Tactical Rail accessories (which are sold separately) for more battle capability.

Is It Fun?

The glow-in-the-dark darts are a really cool innovation to Nerf blasters. The Rayven is easy to use and offers great dart-firing capabilities. Kids will have a lot of fun engaging in night battles with this simple, yet exciting addition to the Nerf line.

Who It’s For

The Nerf N-Strike Elite Rayven CS-18 is for ages 8 and up.
