EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The Knockout is part of a set that includes the Takedown and Charger, which are also available for purchase. The Knockout includes 2 Rival rounds and a set of instructions. A single shot blaster, this one is a hefty piece designed as a sidearm for large scale, if not professional, battles.

The Mercury (part of the Rival Edge series), is a bolt-action blaster that also includes a target and 5 rounds (as well as instructions for setup and use). Target setup should be simple and straightforward for everyone, and no tools are required. Also, the bolt can be moved to accommodate for left or right handed users, which is a very nice feature. 


Is It Fun?
Yes, though with caveats; the Mercury's aim wasn't great at all, but we appreciated the value of the bundled target accessory. The Knockout was stunningly accurate and easily the star of this set.
Who It’s For
Nerf enthusiasts ages 14+.
What To Be Aware Of
VERY powerful blasters, so appropriate safety should be exercised.
AT A GLANCE:
  • Fun
