During the 2017 Hascon Event, Hasbro revealed a number of exciting new Nerf blasters. If you’ve been keeping up with the leaked Nerf news, you may already recognise some of the blasters that were displayed. With all that said, there were still a few surprises. Unfortunately the BlasterHub team couldn’t make it to the event but thanks to social media and Nerf YouTuber, LordDrac, we’ve got a good glimpse of what was shown off.
Today at Melbourne HvZ we introduced a new zombie, the Mega zombie, and spent much of the day play-testing it. In this Nerf Game Report, I’ll be going through the blasters that saw use, the game modes we played, and in particular how the Mega zombie affected games.
Reddit user ‘Willmenx’ has stumbled across a new Stryfe blaster on Amazon.com. Along with the new Modulus colour scheme, the re-released blaster also includes the original Modulus grip and the Ion-Fire’s barrel, as well as six modulus darts and a six-dart magazine.
The Buzz Bee Eradicator is a recolour of the new and predominantly blue Tactical Storm. It is a modular mag fed blaster, not dissimilar in design to the older Champion/Ultra Tek 8. Given the excellence of that particular blaster, I was rather excited to give this new iteration a test.
Disclaimer: This blaster was sent to me by Buzz Bee Toys for review. I will do my best to ensure that the review remains as objective and unbiased as possible.
The Blaze of Glory, a pump action, clip fed blaster, will be out in November for $34.99 at Toysrus, the starting home for most Halo blasters. In addition, a new blue version of the MA5 assault rifle will be exclusive to Amazon. As you may recall, Amazon also carried the blue version of the Rapid Madness when it first came out.
No word yet on camera compatibility, although some kind of Gopro mount would make sense.
This has me excited, as Boomco fans like myself have been wanting a pump-action springer since the line first arrived. My Flipbow has worked wonderfully for HvZ games, but the Blaze of Glory would easily replace it in my loadout.
