Badge-Nerf

Not to be confused with the N-Strike Elite Alpha Trooper CS-12.

The Alpha Trooper CS-18 is a clip system Nerf blaster that was released in 2010 under the N-Strike series.

The Alpha Trooper comes packaged with its eighteen dart drum and eighteen Streamline Darts.

The Alpha Trooper is exclusive to specific stores depending on the country. In the United States and Australia, it is a Target exclusive. In the United Kingdom it is an Argos exclusive. In Canada it is a Zellers exclusive. In Germany, Austria and Switzerland, it is a Müller exclusive.

Details

The Alpha Trooper is able to slam fire darts at incredible speeds. The blaster is capable of using a detachable shoulder stock despite not coming packaged with one. There is a small tactical rail on the top of the blaster. A dart can be placed in the bottom of the handle. Its jam door is located on the top of the blaster.

The blaster has a much better firing range than the Deploy and the shotgun pump can be moved at a much faster rate without the blaster jamming.

History

It was succeeded by the 2013 N-Strike Elite Alpha Trooper CS-12.

Modification

It features a reverse plunger system; despite this, it isn't dismissed as quickly as other reverse plunger blasters in the modding community. Orange Mod Works, a team devoted to modding blasters, have released two special mod kits for the Alpha Trooper: a Stage 1 package with a stronger spring and a "starter" Massacre kit with polycarbonate replacement parts.

Reloading and firing

To reload the Alpha Trooper, pull the slide back and press the clip release button, which is on either side of the trigger, to remove any empty drums or clips. Load up to eighteen Streamline Darts into the provided eighteen dart drum and load a drum into the blaster while pressing down the clip release button. Push the front slide back to the starting position to prime it.

Pull the trigger to fire the blaster.

To slam fire, hold the trigger down and repeatedly prime the blaster.

Trivia

  • The Alpha Trooper may be regarded as an answer to complaints about the Raider.
  • The back of the Alpha Trooper's box shows the slam fire handle in another position than on the regular blaster. The front of the box also shows the dart being fired while the handle is being pushed forward or pulled back. This is shared by the Raider CS-35's box as well.
