Get ready for Overwatch to become somewhat a reality next year when Nerf releases their version of one of the video game’s most popular weapons. The first video game-inspired gun is called the Nerf Rival Overwatch Reaper Wight Edition and you can get your hands on it sometime in 2019. The Nerf gun is based on the Reaper’s Hellfire shotguns.
The Nerf Rival Overwatch Reaper Wight Edition blaster holds up to eight Nerf Rival rounds and can shoot them as fast as 90 feet per second. The Hasbro and Blizzard collaboration blaster has a spring-action mechanism, a ready indicator, and a safety lock. Each Reaper Wight Edition blaster will have an Overwatch logo that is specifically colored for each gun.
The new Nerf gun was unveiled at the 2018 San Diego Comic-Con. Exact release date and pricing hasn’t been revealed as of yet. This is the first in a series of Overwatch Nerf guns. Maybe Hanzo’s Storm Bow could be the next Nerf/Overwatch crossover weapon?
If you can’t wait until 2019 for a new Nerf gun, the Nerf Rival Nemesis MXVII-10K is 40% off right now.
