Blaster typeSingle-fire clip system direct plunger dart blasterRetaliator
Ammunition typeElite Darts
FeaturesPackaged barrel extension, packaged shoulder stock, packaged assault grip, packaged twelve dart clip, three tactical rails (one on priming mechanism, two on barrel extension), one strap point, flip-up iron sight
Firing rangeThis blaster has a firing range of fifty to sixty feet flat.[1] Attaching the barrel extension will drop ranges by about 15 to 20 feet.[2] Only when the blaster is shot at an angle can it reach the claimed seventy-five feet.
ReliabilityThe Retaliator mostly jams due to human error, though problems may occur in the clip in which the spring doesn't work properly, resulting in inability to fire darts. This blaster has a medium spread occasionally, but the longer barrel (while reducing firing range) eliminates this problem.
Rate of fireThe blaster can shoot about one to two darts per second. With practice, the blaster can fire up to three darts per second.[3]
CapacityThis blaster can hold up to twelve darts with its included clip plus a dart in the handle, making thirteen darts- more than its predecessor. However, the Recon can actually hold more; it can hold an extra clip in its stock as well as hold a dart in the hole of the handle.
Final verdict and summary
Review PassThis is an extremely powerful blaster that exceeds its predecessor, despite its lack of accessories (by comparison).
