After being announced a few months back, Hasbro and Blizzard revealed the first Overwatch-themed Nerf Rival blaster at Comic-Con.

Back in May, it was revealed that Blizzard Entertainment teamed up with Hasbro to produce a line of Overwatch-themed Nerf Rival blasters, but at the time we didn’t know any more than that. That all changed today, however, as the company revealed the first blaster in the series and its the one that everyone expected.

The blaster itself is modeled after Reapers in-game weapon, the Hellfire Shotguns, although more than likely each pack will only include one blaster. While the in-game version is a blackish/grey color, this version will be white with some small black accents, along with the orange tip that’s required by US law.

Unfortunately, only one image of the blaster was released, which you can check out at the top of the article.

The blaster itself can fire at up to 90 feet-per-second, hold eight Rival rounds, and features a pump action.

Unfortunately, as of the time of this writing, we have no idea how much the blaster will cost, however, we do know that it’ll launch sometime in 2019.
