Blizzard and Nerf are going to release a couple of guns based on Overwatch, one being Reaper’s shotgun, the other D.Va’s pistol.

They’re part of Nerf’s “Rivals” line, which is basically a series of guns made and marketed specifically at adults, and which fire small round projectiles (like squishy musketballs) instead of the traditional Nerf bullets.

Reaper’s shotgun will hold eight rounds and fire them at 27.43m per second, while D.Va’s will hold three and shoot at 24.38m per second.

Given D.Va’s catchphrase literally includes the word “nerf”, it’s insane it’s taken both companies this long to get something like this out there.

Both will be out next year, but there’s no word on price.


    • Considering we’ve never seen the base Rivals guns released down here, I think this is a fair assumption.

      • The reason for the lack of Rival series was because they shoot projectiles at a higher velocity than the stock dart blasters. It’s still ridiculous, though. I had to bring my Zeus back with me from the US. Would love a Kronos. Just importing mod springs and steel triggers saw them intercepted and opened by customs.

        The Overwatch series will probably make it here but are likely to be more available in specialty stores like Zing.
