Rumour: new Nerf 25 dart drum?

Props to the Urban Taggers rumour machine :D They were sent this from Baidu, possibly hinting at a few things:


So what do we think? It could be:
  1. An unfinished product/custom paintjob
  2. Linked to the Rumoured ZS Winchester rifle (but no ZS decal so I doubt this)
  3. A complete new blaster unseen as yet (Clear CS-18 popped up solo... then shown later with a leaked blaster)
  4. May be sold separately, so they did a new paintjob to distinguish that?

I'm on the fence, but swinging towards it being an unfinished product/paintjob. It COULD come with a new blaster, whilst the old drum is only obtainable through buying a Rampage for example. That would make sense.

EDIT: I'm more inclined to believe this IS official Nerf, because this is an infamous photo-taker / background we know to have a track record in leaking blasters, clips and generally anything Nerf. Got a feeling it's a likely to be a cost saving initiative - and it looks like a good one!


The fan in me wants to believe there is a hidden blaster waiting to pop up... :)

What do we think folks?

    I love the idea of the ZS Winchester - but can't see it using a drum. I love the look of it tho, it looks better, maybe it is to do with a new blaster!

  2. It's likely a different paintjob, seeing as the 'FRONT' text is in orange rather than black. Probably the same deal as the Lightningstorm drum (was released individually in reversed colours).

  3. Cant see it being for the ZS Winchester because i think it would have the ZS branding from the Hammershot on it - Would like it to be a new unknown blaster :D or just a colour variation for the Elite range - would look sweet with an Elite AT.

  5. Would they really use a drum that says "Elite" with a totally different lineup? I imagine it would probably have a "Zombie Strike" logo if that were the case. I have to side with the individual sale theory, especially since there's not a hint of a blaster in these photos.

  6. I'm pretty sure the Zombiestrike line will be limited to front-loading. Much like the rebelle. I cannot see ZS using clips.

    This could be in some sort of mission kit/ rampage repaint? The comments suggest Whiteout Rampage.

  7. It's ironic how you go on about quashing rumours over on Reddit but you're perfectly happy to launch them from here.

    1. Hey man, thanks for dropping by! Well as a blogger it's what I do - report on all things Nerf :)

      I have stated I'm not sure what it is on here and Reddit, but i'm more inclined to go with an accessory being sold separately.

      Not sure how much you know about this User who has taken the photos, but they're linked with leaking Nerf blasters/accessories, so it stands a strong possibility of being real whatever it is :)
