Nerf Elite 2.0 Echo CS-10, 4 in 1 Dart Blaster Toy with 24 Official Nerf Darts and 10-Dart Clip, Removable Stock and Barrel Extension and 4 Tactical Rails, for Kids Aged 8+
About this deal
The Flipshots sub-series features blasters that have a "flipping" mechanic that allows the user to switch between two sets of barrels of darts.
Interestingly, its name may be a reference to the previous Delta Trooper and Alpha Trooper blasters, as "Echo" is also a letter in the NATO phonetic alphabet. Despite this, none of the blasters themselves feature their number codes on the shell, only their name. The number code system for Elite 2.0 closely resembles that of the Alpha Strike series, rather than N-Strike's system.The Echo's clip release is located inside the trigger guard. It is very easy to activate, which can lead to accidental ejects if the button is brushed up against during use.
The Echo can be considered as a spiritual and functional successor to the Delta Trooper, which in turn is the successor of the Retaliator, both of which are top prime slide action clip system blasters. Initial reception to Elite 2.0 was very mixed. While the inclusion of additional darts, an abundance of accessory attachment points, and the overall ergonomics of Elite 2.0 blasters have been praised, the changes to how the blasters are assembled have been highly criticized. Many of the first Elite 2.0 blasters were assembled in a way that makes modification and repairs difficult. While blasters are still held together by standard screws and/or pressure clips, as introduced in the Alpha Strike line of blasters, many others are also ultrasonically or solvent-welded together. The quality of the plastic used in production has also been called "thin", compared to previous or other releases, and some parts such as jam doors can be easily snapped off. Additionally, many of the metal springs in blasters have been replaced with plastic leaf springs, which are less strong and can break after long periods of time.Elite 2.0, as its name suggests, is a spiritual successor to the 2012 N-Strike Elite series. Its blasters feature a similar design to those seen in later releases of N-Strike Elite, with the exception that the blasters are now teal and orange in color, rather than blue and orange. Most blasters include double their intended firing capacity worth of darts.
