Unboxing & Review: Nerf Rival Overwatch Blasters

Our budding weapons expert Greg Burke unboxes Nerf's Rival Precision Overwatch Blasters and gives his take on how they feel.


if you're hoping to engage in a little light cosplay of your favorite Overwatch characters, Nerf may have a lovely solution for you. The Rival Precision series of toy weapons is Nerf's slightly higher-end line of guns and the company partnered up with Blizzard for some solid replicas of guns from Overwatch.

Not all of us are DIY savvy, so grabbing one of the many different Overwatch weapons in this line of Nerf guns could add a splash of authenticity to a costume without diving too deeply into the trial and error of creating your own. Of course, these Nerf blasters can just be brandished for fun, like an Overwatch-themed shootout with a group of friends. The suggested age for these is 14 and older.

In the video above, our video expert Greg Burke unboxes the Nerf Rival Overwatch Blasters, shows off the features of each, shoots them off, and gives a quick take on how they feel. One immediately important take is that these blasters actually are pretty hefty and are 1:1 replicas. Greg shows off the weapons of D.Va, McCree, and Reaper. Reaper's dual-pistols also come with a mask.

The Reaper, D.Va, and McCree blasters are the only weapons available at this time, but Nerf could potentially release a few more in the future. Don't hold your breath for Widowmaker's sniper rifle, but I'd be very surprised if Tracer's dual-pistols don't make an appearance at some point. The current Nerf Rival Overwatch Blaster options are available from $29.99 to $129.99.
