Nerf producer Hasbro has heard you out loud and clear, Adam Savage of the world: You want to be able to shoot foam projectiles for days without having to carry around a belt full of magazines or bending down continuously to reload.
Today, the company announces Nerf Hyper, a new line of blasters that not only shoot harder (up to 110 feet per second) than any stock blaster, but also features the company’s fastest reloads, a smaller foam. Thanks to projectiles that take up so little space, you can fit 40 of them inside A pistol-shaped blaster. He is unheard of in Nerf. You can climb 50 or 100 round canisters very quickly like a paintball gun.
Hasbro doesn’t have a fixed release date for Hyper beyond “2021”, but we’re getting three blasters to start:
- $ 30 Nerf Hyper Rush-40 There is a 40-round pistol that I mentioned; It is a single-shot, spring-action where you pull back the entire slide (including its integrated hopper), then fire once.
- $ 40 Hyper Siege-50 The pump-action shotgun design holds 50 rounds including slam fire; Hold the trigger and it will accelerate as you pump. See it above our gallery below.
- But prominently clear $ 70 Hyper Mach-100, A fully automatic SMG design that takes the D battery and ejects foam balls from its 100-round hopper. See it at the top of this post.
Note that none of the new blasters actually record how many shots you get before reloading them – $ 100 Nerf rival Nemesis, $ 100 purse, and $ 200 Prometheus are already hoppers to Hasbro’s Larger opponents show balls capable of fitting 100 or more. The opponent was already capable of 100 feet per second, so even 110fps is not a big jump.
No, it is the capacity-to-size ratio of these blasters that is really impressive. Hasbro SVP and Nerf brand manager Tom Warner said, “In the volume where you could score home in the first 25 rival rounds, you can now fit 100 hyper rounds” The Reporter Door.
Where fan-favorite purse bus hardly 100 fit in a big, fleshy SMG until you invest In an aftermarket hopper, It can be easier now. The next time Nerf builds a large underslung cannon like Prometheus, you could theoretically be able to fire 800 rounds without reloading once. And it was not long ago when a six-shot revolver was considered a state of the art in the stock Nerf siderums.
And while you can afford new ammo, you can pay a lot less per shot if you buy in bulk. While 50- and 100-round refill cans will retail for $ 12 and $ 20, respectively, you’ll be able to pick up a packet of 200 rounds for $ 30. This works out to 15 centimeters per projectile – not to mention the 27 cents Nerf charge of the Elite Dart, 36 cents per competitor, 40 cents per Ultra, or 50 cents for each Mega Dart.
Hasbro tells us that when there is a need to find a new material for hyper balls, they really must fly anymore, while still being able to bounce. No word on whether they are curves.
It has been more than five years since the Nerf community showed That opponent was perfect for high caliber, rapid fire blasters, And nemesis and purse was an excellent debut, but recently also got Hasbro Trend is when it comes to long-range blasters Still trying to sell us on its proprietary Ultra Dart. But Hyper seems like it can do a lot of things that Nerfar wants all at once.
I am very curious to see where the hyper new foam blaster meta will fit once the epidemic spreads and whether the community will accept it.
