Second Overwatch NERF Blaster Revealed And It Is A D.Va’s Light Gun

Remember the NERF Rival Overwatch Reaper Edition Blaster that is based on the Reaper’s Wight Hellfire shotgun announced at this year’s SDCC? Well, here’s another one announced over at the ChinaJoy in Shanghai and it is, of course, the D.Va Light Gun. This is true to the heroine’s small arm, though clearly not in the area of capacity and the projectiles it launches.

Hasbro Wants To Sell You An Overwatch NERF Blaster… In 2019

Overwatch fans cosplaying as Reaper Wight will be glad to know that you need not cobble your own Reaper weapon of choice, the Hellfire Shotguns because, Hasbro and Blizzard Entertainment has come together to create one. There’s a caveat to it though: the blaster will only land in 2019 with no specific dates to it. Anyways, the best part about this Overwatch-themed NERF blaster is, it is an officially licensed item, plus the obvious gratification that it can actually shoot – up to 90 feet per second (27 m/s) – unlike certain prop weapons.

Adam Savage Turned A NERF Rival Nemesis Into A 1,000 Shot Beast

You know. I am actually glad that Adam Savage is done with Mythbuster. Why? Because, it is only then we get to see him getting the time to building and modding stuff that wows us. The latest build, a custom 1,000 Shot NERF Rival Nemesis, really had me drooling all over. For the uninitiated, the original NERF Rival Nemesis is good for 100 shot before needing to reload. Given that it is an automatic NERF blaster, 100 shot is hardly enough for a serious NERF skirmish. Continue reading Adam Savage Turned A NERF Rival Nemesis Into A 1,000 Shot Beast

This DIY NERF Rival Minigun Spits Out Foam Balls At 20 Rounds/Sec!

Lets face it. However you try to up the firepower of your NERF guns, nothing will ever beat the barrage of Rival foam balls like a minigun does. Mini, what? Yes. You freaking heard that loud and clear. A NERF minigun. Obviously, Hasbro did not and probably will never roll out a NERF version Gatling gun, but someone actually did and that one person is YouTuber Captain Xavier. With the help of a few YouTubers, Captain Xavier has DIY-ed a NERF Rival Minigun that looks as good as it functions. Yes. It is totally functional, which makes it an awesome cosplay accessory too, as showcased by the man himself. Man, the getup is absolutely stunning.

Working Steam-powered NERF Gun May Be Good For Steaming Clothes Too

Fascinated by steampunk culture? Like duh.. who doesn’t right? Fantasy aside, have you ever thought about if steam-powered devices are actually practical in real life? I mean, seriously, the time it takes for steam to muster enough power to execute a task or two, it will take need a lot of heat and time. Having said that, steampunk is probably a fantasy best left to anime and movie adaption of Around the World in 80 Days. It is hardly practical, but that does not stop garage inventor, tinkerer and YouTuber Peter Sripol from creating a steam-powered NERF Gun.

This Face Recognition NERF Blaster Identifies Target Before Shooting

While most grown ups continue to enjoy NERF toys as they are, some took it to the next level with mods. Mods are cool which makes the whole NERF experience a little more, how do you say? Intimate? Something like that. I did some myself to a good’ol Maverick Rev-6, but they are just basics. In fact, many mods are because there’s really this much you can do with a stock NERF blaster. But leave it to the geeks and you will see some pretty dope high-tech mods like the NERF Vulcan Sentry Gun some years ago. Sentry, as the name suggests, is a NERF robotic guard that protects your fort autonomously. It was good and all, except that it could not differentiate between friends from foes. The Raspberry Pi-powered NERF Blaster you see here, however, can. Continue reading This Face Recognition NERF Blaster Identifies Target Before Shooting

Mandalorian Edition NERF Blaster Is A Pricey Way Of Battling As Boba Fett

Now, this is something that should have been done for a long time, but I guess it is better late than never. What you got here is a NERF Rival Apollo XV-700 Blaster-inspired by the intergalactic bounty hunter Boba Fett, specifically, from the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront II video game. Produced by U.S. video game chain, GameStop, this special edition NERF blaster comes draped in the colors of the infamous mercenary’s armor and with appropriate ‘worn’ effects that makes the otherwise run-of-the-mill NERF Rival Apollo XV-700 Blaster look strikingly different and if I may say so, a little more attractive. At least it is over the stock pinkish red and blue variety. Continue reading Mandalorian Edition NERF Blaster Is A Pricey Way Of Battling As Boba Fett

Adam Savage’s Custom NERF Rifle Is Full Of Sci-Fi Awesomeness

NERF blasters were never mean to look like real-life firearms, simply because they are toys. Despite so, they do have a sci-fi-ish asesthetic to them which makes them kind of realistic, well, in a sci-fi way. Unfortunately, this sci-fi kind of realistic look is marred by the bright colorways designed to lure kids and also, as per regulation, to prevent them from looking like real weapons (remember, even Airsoft has orange tip to mark them as toys). But that’s stock NERF we are talking about and beyond the shelves, there’s no stopping folks like Adam Savage from lending their magical touch to turn a stock NERF rifle into one that’s worthy of a sci-fi movie prop. Continue reading Adam Savage’s Custom NERF Rifle Is Full Of Sci-Fi Awesomeness

NERF’s New Blasters Include An Anime-ish, Monstrous 30-Foam Dart Shooter

By now, we should be accustomed to NERF’s relentless pursuit to outdo itself. That said, it is no surprise that a 100-foam ball blaster and foam car-shooting blaster aren’t enough, cos’ the Hasbro brand is churning out more delightful blasters which the company will showcase at the upcoming New York Toy Fair, happening from February 18-21. One of the three notable blasters that will be unveiled is a jaw-dropping, monstrous (and somewhat anime-ish) blaster called The Judge. We are not sure if it is the judge, but with the fire power it has, it sure is an executioner. Continue reading NERF’s New Blasters Include An Anime-ish, Monstrous 30-Foam Dart Shooter

You know the key to winning a NERF battle? Firepower. But shit load of firepower won’t be enough – you need a blaster that has unlimited ammunition, like, you know, one that fires forever. Of course, we all know that’s a fantasy, a Hollywood kind of thing, or a possibility only if you enter cheat code in a game. So for now, as far as real flesh-and-blood foam ammunition battle is concern, the NERF Rival Nemesis MXVII-10k Foam Ball Blaster you see here is as close as you can get in getting an upper hand in a NERF shoot out.
