Exactly on time for the Pride week, Nerf brings us what looks best Overwatchinspired blaster so far: a fully automatic, Nerf Rival-explosive, 30-round version of Soldier 76 & # 39; s pulse rifle from the game, complete with lighting, "recoil action" and a full mask with visor to get you out can see.
It is an exclusive GameStop that costs $ 130 when it's delivered in November, so it's not exactly cheap, and you need six D-cell batteries to power it. But it is remarkable to be the first Overwatch blaster that is even ready for combat remotely.
When we heard that Hasbro was working with Blizzard Entertainment to bring our favorite Overwatch the weapons of real-world characters like foaming blasters, we were excited for the time being – only to discover that they were glorified props. It is clear that Hasbro D.Va's screams of "Nerf this!" Literally grabbed and watched her amazing in-game gun turn into a basically receding Nerf rifle that can only fire three times before reloading. (Don't get me on McCree & # 39; s one-shot "revolver.")
But the Blaster of the Soldier 76 has an internal 30-round hopper that you can easily fill if you run around, catch balls from the ground and fire these rounds fully automatically at a speed of 90 feet per second after you have boosted the engines. Unfortunately Hasbro says The edge it's not compatible with the Rival Rechargeable Battery Pack, so you'll need those heavy D cells if you don't want to wire a LiPo yourself.
Yet that price hurts. Even a licensed toy such as Nerf & # 39; s FortniteAR-L Elite theme, a semi-automatic 20-round dart blaster, costs just $ 50. And if you don't need the role play, Nerf has a similar hopper-fed, full-auto blaster, the $ 100 Nerf Nemesis, which is 100 laps at the same time.
