Despite their ability to be used in Streamline Dart clips and drums, Elite Darts have differences from their predecessor dart type. The color scheme is different, as well as having a shorter tip plug than Streamline Darts for better compatibility with more blasters. The weight of Elite Darts is also slightly different when compared to Streamline Darts.
It has been demonstrated that Elite Darts shoot farther than Streamlines, most likely due to the aforementioned changes. Commercials claim that these darts go seventy-five feet when fired from an Elite blaster, but like Streamlines, they vary in range and accuracy. These darts are more accurate than regular Streamline Darts.
Nerfologist, a trader on eBay UK, has tested these darts extensively in a range of modified N-Strike blasters and has seen range gains of five to fifteen feet over Streamline Darts used in the same blaster. Not surprisingly, it would seem the higher performing blasters see the biggest gains in distance. Another big advantage noted was that higher velocities do not cause Elite Darts to "fishtail" to anywhere near the same extent as Streamline Darts. Their behavior is more akin to well-made Stefans.
Blasters that are able to fire Streamline Darts or Micro Darts are able to fire Elite Darts as well. This includes all clip system blasters. They have also been shown to work very well in the clip-fed Dart Tag blasters.
The Elite Dart has one variant: the upcoming Suction Dart.
The Elite Dart has been released in the following color schemes:
- Standard (blue body and orange head)

- It was originally rumored that Elite Darts would have been able to whistle and stick to walls. A concept mock-up claimed that it would have been like a combination of a Whistler Dart, a Micro Dart, and a Streamline Dart.
- There are, so far, 5 dart letter types: "A" comes with the Rough Cut 2x4 and the Rapidstrike CS-18. "K" with the Strongarm, and Retaliator, "W" with the Firestrike, Jolt, and Triad, "J" with most refill packs (including the "Special Edition" versions) and clip system N-Strike Elite Blasters, and "T" with the Alpha Trooper CS-12.
