Nerf guns have the amazing ability to turn grown men into children while at the same time making actual children even more annoying; one moment you’re sitting there watching the TV and the next you’ve got a nerf bullet stuck in your ear.

Well, things are about to get even more ‘exciting’ because Blizzard and Hasbro have been working on a project. It’s a project that will make all Overwatch fans weak at the knees, and that is the ‘Nerf Rival Overwatch Reaper Wight Edition Blaster’. Yes, we’re getting a new nerf gun, in the shape of Reaper’s shotguns. Cool.

This news dropped at a very convenient time, as Overwatch has a free to play weekend coming up and as you would expect this news is going viral. Whatever the motives behind it, this nerf gun is going to be the coolest Hasbro have released.

Take a look at the preview:

They’re not due to be released until next year, but when they drop I’m going to be buying one, and I will dress my fat friend up in a roadhog suit and repeatedly shoot him until he finally drops; just like I do in the game.

If these sell as well as we expect them to it might not be long before we see Widowmaker’s sniper, Soldier’s AR, McCree’s pistol or maybe even Orisa’s hand cannon released – we can only hope.

In Blizzard’s words “You’re going to be so cool”.

Ricky spent most of his childhood playing games, mainly FPS and RPG games and this has continued into his adult life. You’ll regularly see him on Overwatch until he rages, then he'll move on to FIFA until he rages again - then he gives up on multiplayer games and chills out with a single player adventure.
