You may think Nerf blasters and accessories are just toys for grade school kids and bored office workers, but you’d be dead wrong. They’re serious business. Legions of adults collect and mod these foam shooters. There’s even a full-length hardcover book dedicated to Nerf’s best gear.
Earlier this year at Toy Fair NYC Nerf announced its new RIVAL lineup which includes a blaster that fires foam ammo at highway speeds. As we inch closer towards its release we’ve gotten more details and even a new video demo of Nerf’s baddest blaster:
Nerf’s RIVAL ZEUS MXV-1200 Blaster is priced at $50, but it’s likely going to be tough to come by at launch (next week-ish) as Amazon and Toys R Us pre-orders are currently sold out. If you do find one, make sure you buy one of the new Rival Face Masks so you don’t end up losing an eye. Nerf is also set to release the Rival Apollo XV-700 for $24.99, but it’s a single-fire blaster and only has a 7-round magazine.
Some deals from Amazon to hold you over until the RIVAL line is released:
- Nerf N-Strike Modulus ECS-10 Blaster: $39.99 (Reg. $50)
- Nerf N-Strike SharpFire Blaster: $11.99 (Reg. $16)
- Nerf N-Strike Elite Demolisher 2-in-1 Blaster: $31.99 (Reg. $40)
- Nerf N-Strike Elite Mega CycloneShock Blaster: $15.99 (Reg. $22)
