So every time we report on Nerf and their creations, the grown up in my says “who would want that?” while the child is already reaching for my money. Seems like toy manufacturer Hauck and Stroller are interested in ridding us of that money as they reveal the latest in an arsenal of Nerf weapons, the NERF Battle Racer!
Ever feel like running into battle just wasn’t enough? Pedal this monster into the fury while carrying two of your favourite NERF blasters on the front, strapping some spare ammo in the middle to keep you stocked up for those extended fights. Feel like you need more fire power? Carry an additional two blasters behind the chair, giving either yourself or your teammates that extra blaster when they need it the most.
As well as a nice design, the chair looks quite comfy, including small pockets for you to store spare NERF rounds. While designed for children (aged 4-10), I can see many adults peddling away while blasting their latest NERF guns into the air.
Nerf are not ones to shy away from bringing us hours of fun, from a quick run around with foam darts flying to safely playing out our fantasy survival scenarios, Nerf’s are not just for kids when it comes to your imagination and the fun you can have. Recently we told you about how their latest additions included a fully automatic blaster firing at 30mph, but it looks like the serious players will soon be joining the Zombie defence force with their latest release.
The Zombie Strike Brainsaw Blaster looks like it is out of a movie with the classic green and orange colours making sure that when you swerve into the fray you will be noticed. With a handle and blade, it would look good on any survivor, but the fun doesn’t stop there. The Brainsaw blaster not only features eight firing darts but the foam blade actually rotates, adding a whole new level to your survival experience. While not the first chainsaw for the Nerf Zombie group, it is the first one which does more than just play sounds. Combine the nerf chainsaw with your hatchet, machetes and swords.
From fighting in the office to surviving a zombie horde, Nerf seems to be keen on letting us live out our dreams, no matter what our age.
Nerf are well-known toys for both grown-ups and children alike. From a fun play around in the back garden to all out warfare (without the bruises) Nerf are the go to for foam projectiles. From foam bullets to the more recent foam ball based systems you can enjoy the battle in several ways, and it only looks to get better this year!
Nerf’s latest creation is the Rival Blaster series, rather than the traditional pellets that Nerf guns use, the rival series uses small balls more akin to musket balls or giant soft bb’s. The only hold back to the series though was that the first model, similar to the first models of the classic nerf guns, was spring-loaded. This changed in the Zeus, which used batteries to automate the gun to fire at 30MPH, but could still only fire one ball at a time. The next upgrade you can experience is the Khaos, designed for release in late 2016.
The Khaos will be the first fully automatic in the new Rival series. With a 40 round magazine, the gun will fire all of them with a single long press of the trigger. Be warned, you will require six D-sized batteries so it won’t be the lightest or easiest on your arms or your foes!
Other releases this year will include the Mastodon, a Mega blaster that will fire all 24 of the extra-large Nerf darts at the press of a button.
The Modulus series lets you chop and change your weapon based on your needs and preferences, but the Tri-Strike will let you do more than that. Supporting not just the elite darts, the Tri-Strike lives up to its name and lets you also fire four Mega darts and even a foam missile for those really tight spaces!
If you are not one for the strategic or modular approach then maybe the Hyper-Fire will tickle your interest. Featuring a drum which will hold 25 darts the Hyper-Fire will unleash up to five darts per second while in its fully automatic mode. Ouch.
So the only question we have left is where do we pre-order?
Visceral looks like it will be lowering down the game’s drivable couch stats with the first patch. The intended Easter egg apparently proved to be too popular and too effective as an actual vehicle rather than the joke it was intended to be. Battlefield Hardline’s patch now state that Visceral will lower the couch’s stats by drastically lowering its health and repair rate.
“Couch health reduced and repair rate decreased to a miniscule amount, making the Couch the one-off it was intended,” the developer wrote.
The exact date of when the patch will roll out is not yet known, but Visceral said that the new stats will take effect in the “near future”. The full patch notes can be found over at Battlefield’s forum.
