The play weapons for Overwatch will be part of the Nerf Rival line. These play guns are a style of high-performance, play gun that represents are a much softer alternative to the hard-hitting, back-breaking paintball. Of course, you could also just grab a soft tennis racket and hit your sibling with it, but we don’t condone real-life violence here at Game Revolution. So stick to nerf guns.
Another thing that wasn’t revealed was the price, as well as other weapon specifications. So expect more news in the future, but until then we’re grasping at straws on what we should expect from the Overwatch and Nerf partnership.
Yet some would argue that Nerf Rival are a little too late when it comes to making Overwatch weapons. There have been fans who have already made their own Overwatch-themed nerf guns, such as DVA’s blaster and Reaper’s hellfire shotguns. If there is one thing you can’t accuse Overwatch cosplayers of, it’s lack of dedication to even the finest of details.
