Dart Zone Updates – Endwar and Beyond!

Since Dart Zone just posted the next teaser for Dart Zone Pro, I may as well cover that and the blasters shown at Foamcon! The blasters on hand were fun to use and impressive updates on previous designs (as well as new ones, if you can call a Kronos competitor new).

Let’s jump in!

Dart Zone Pro is Official!

There’s not much extra news to relay here – we’ve been wondering when the announcement would happen ever since Google indexed a test page. Now, though, it appears that the official release (presumably of full information and preorders) will be July 15th!

Fortnite Rocket Launcher (With Actual Rocket) Announced

It’s about time! We’ve seen a Fortnite Rocket Launcher Super Soaker, and a Microshot, but nothing that fires actual rockets – until now.

Confirmed via Twitter, Hasbro will have Demolisher rocket-launching toys on hand for the Fortnite Block Party in Los Angeles, in early limited release.

No word yet on when the official, wide release will be. I would assume this is a standard “manual pump and fire” blaster, as opposed to one that uses an air tank. Even so, this makes for a new blaster that’s just simply fun to use. Who doesn’t like large ammo?

Game Report – Weekend Survival Challenge

Back in May, I had the opportunity to flee the usual Nerfy weekend for a unique experience. Weekend Survival Challenge is a Humans v Zombies game that takes place entirely on a campground out in Kansas, and goes on day and night from Friday evening to Sunday morning. Generally, you only get to sleep if you’re a zombie, or really good at hiding. It’s a unique, ammo-scarce experience that I hope to try again next year, if the schedule allows it!

Nerf Mega Battlecamo Cycloneshock Review

When I ordered the new Battlecamo version of the Cycloneshock, I looked through the archives and couldn’t find a review of the original blaster! So we’re doing one now.

The Cycloneshock is the Mega line’s answer to the Strongarm (and, more currently, the Disruptor). It’s an oversized revolver with an easy top prime and decent dart velocity, making for a fun blaster for all ages – even if stock Mega darts aren’t that accurate.
