Shooting Range

Even though it has a higher firing rate than the N-Strike series, it can shoot darts at a distance of 90 feet, which is very impressive for a pistol.

Although the effective range of the competing ammunition is greater because of its increased precision, hitting a human at 10 meters with an N-Strike blaster is fairly hit or miss, but these are far more accurate.


As is usually the case, the accuracy of rival rounds exceeds that of N-Strike ammunition. The iron sights and lack of stock are telltale signs that this is a handgun.

When using a spring-powered blaster, one of the drawbacks is that you have to adjust your aim downward every time you prime the weapon. Thus the rate of firing action decreases.

No, the Rival automatic nerf gun does not shoot table tennis balls because they are too big. It shoots soft balls like other blasters but has only 5 round capacity. Ping pong guns are separate toy, which shoots a little big balls.

The answer is no, as it is a spring blaster with a trigger button, so it does not have slam fire. There is always the chance that the blaster will jam, making the trigger impossible to pull and the priming mechanism useless.
