The dramatic Nerf Rival line kicks it up a notch, and you'll have a blast--literally and figuratively. The Artemis XVII is a dramatic, single shot high capacity blaster. It's easy to load. Just slide the chamber door back and insert up to 10 rounds in each chamber. Once it's loaded, to fire, press the trigger lock, move the pump handle all the way back and pull the trigger back to fire one round. If you want to slam fire multiple rounds, hold the trigger and pump the handle. However, the competitive play here is more about accuracy and precision targeting than volume of blasting, though we do like having the option. It includes 30 rounds of the spherical, foam Rival ammo.
The Artemis is available in red and blue versions designed for team play. Because of the velocity and power of the blasting, be sure to wear all appropriate protective gear.
What we love about the Nerf Rival line is that it really is about a specific type of competitive play that encourages action, strategy and camaraderie.
We like that this is manual action and that it's really well balanced that makes it easy to run around with and flip easily into blasting mode. It's probably more effective for single shot blasting, but if you've got an enemy in sight, you can totally unload all 30 rounds in a matter of moments.
It does take a little bit of practice to become adept at loading the ammo.
These blasters are a little bit on the expensive side, but we think the level of performance and the whole aspect of team play makes them well worth any additional expense.
