For information on the blaster's standard features, see Retaliator.

The Elite XD Retaliator is a re-release of the N-Strike Elite Retaliator that was released in 2014 under the N-Strike Elite series.

It comes packaged with a barrel extension, a detachable shoulder stock, an Assault Grip, a twelve dart clip, twelve Elite Darts, and instructions.


As its name suggests, the Elite XD Retaliator features improved "Elite XD" internals, which supposedly boosts its firing power. It advertises a firing range of up to ninety feet in the US (compared to the original Elite version's seventy-five feet), or twenty-seven meters in Europe (compared to the original Elite version's twenty meters).

Despite this, and like other re-released Elite XD blasters, it features the same performance as its original counterpart.

Reloading and firing

To reload the Retaliator, move the priming slide back and press the clip release button to remove any empty clips from the blaster. Load up to twelve Elite Darts into the packaged clip. While holding down the clip release button, load the packaged clip into the blaster. Move the priming slide forward to prime the blaster.

Pull the trigger to fire a dart.
