Retaliator XD is the latest Elite blaster released at the time of creating this list. It's a re-do of the best selling Elite retaliator and most difference is in the paint job. The internals and the modus operandi have been retained as found in the original retaliator. The velocity and range have said to be upgraded to upto 90 feet as compared to the original 75ft. The performance has improved but only to a minimal extent.
The spring blaster provides more power and accuracy as compared to the motorized blaster present in the Rapidstrike, and requires no batteries to operate. The blaster comes with a 12 dart magazine and 12 elite darts, a very sturdy stock, and a foregrip too. The blaster can be used in four different blaster forms based on what attachments you add on. The priming handle is present on top of the blaster and jams certain times. But this only happens due to improper priming, a human error and can be cleared through the jam access door.
This blaster is by far the best and most affordable option if you're looking for a dart blasting gun that operates without batteries.
