I bought this on a whim after seeing a friends, and it's easily one of my favourites out of my collection of Nerf Guns. With eight darts and the ability to fire one dart or two at the same time, its capacity can beat most other guns that don't use a clip system. Additionally, the ability to constantly reload by just slipping the darts in is also useful.
The distance matches up with the other two elite guns I have (Firestrike and Rampage), so you won't have much problems when it comes to range, especially as this mainly ranks as a short-range weapon (though I've found it effective up to medium range in battles).
The best part of it though is the feel - it's neither too bulky or too streamlined, and it feels just as good in one hand as it does in two; you won't have any problems with the handling of the gun in a battle.
To criticise, I must point out that the darts aren't too accurate and longer ranges, but that's the same with other Elite guns. Additionally, sometimes it gets confused when you put in other types of darts, so elite darts are preferred. Finally, the handle for pumping it is a little small and not as easy to work as on other guns, such as the Rampage or Recon, which use a similar system. All in all though, these aren't enough to detract from the whole experience.
Whether you just want this gun for occasional bouts in your home, entertaining the cats or a full-on Nerf Gun fight/HvZ, this gun comes highly recommended.
