Nerf has sorta secretly released the new N-Strike Elite Stockade, and you can go get one now!! If you live in the United Kingdom, at least. For those of you who aren’t quite sure what a stockade is, it’s the upgraded version of the Barricade RV-10. We really didn’t hear much about this blaster at all for a long time, and we really don’t know much about it now! What we do know is that it sports a dual flywheel propulsion system, either semi or full-auto firing, sling attachment points, a tactical rail, and a stock that can store 10 extra rounds. It has also been given an advertised range of 75 feet. Read the full post on this blaster here.
MESSAGE TO MY UNITED KINGDOM VIEWERS Send me a picture of you with your stockade and I’ll feature it here! ;D
I also spotted this bit of news on BasicNerf‘s blog, so once again original credit goes to him.
So this is just my curiosity coming out; What do you guys think about the Stockade? I think Nerf is waiting to see how well the original Elite blasters will sell, and then they’ll decide whether or not to release the Stockade. They may be doing the same thing with the Elite Jolt and the Firestrike (Elite Nitefinder), who knows?
The Stockade is the successor to the N-Strike Barricade. No word yet on the range, but I’m sure it’ll be 75 feet. I say that because it’s a flywheel system blaster (just like the Barricade), and I’m sure that whatever new flywheel tech has been put into the Hail-Fire will be in here too. This blaster has a 10-round, auto-rotating ammo drum and I believe it’s semi-automatic. It also comes with a removable stock that can house up to 10 extra rounds of ammunition (5 on each side). It also looks like a beast!
So what’s your opinion? Do you love it? Or should it stay under wraps?
Side note: I personally think this would make a GREAT sidearm. It just needs some sort of loop to attach a D-ring or strap onto it. I think the new Elite bandolier would look awesome with it. Just my opinion.
