Hasbro’s collaboration with Epic Games for Fortnite-inspired Nerf Blasters is a hit, and the next wave is being prepped for fall.
Following the first wave in March and the TS earlier this month, the fall Nerf Fortnite lineup will include the new Fortnite HC-E Mega Blaster, the Fortnite RL Blaster, and a second series of Fortnite Microshots. All will be available at most major toy retailers nationwide, and will allow combatants ages 8 and up to engage in unlimited battle — no batteries required.
NERF FORTNITE HC-E MEGA Blaster
With this single-shot Nerf Mega blaster, kids can load 1 dart into the barrel, move the slide to prime, and pull the trigger to fire. It comes with three official Nerf Mega darts for indoor/outdoor use.
NERF FORTNITE RL Blaster
The RL (rocket launcher) fires one big fort-wrecking rocket at a time. Kids simply load a rocket into the front of the barrel, grasp the handle and push it forward to extend the barrel, then pull the handle back to send the rocket blasting into the air. It comes with two official Nerf Fortnite Elite rockets.
NERF FORTNITE MICROSHOTS Assortment (Series 2)
Nerf Microshots capture the look of full-sized blasters, but in a scrunched-down style. Blasters in the series two assortment include the AR-L, HC-R, and BATTLE BUS. Each blaster includes two official Nerf Elite darts and fires one dart at a time with hand-powered action. Kids can load one dart into the front of the blaster, pull down the handle to prime, and pull the trigger to fire.
The new Nerf Fortnite range is available for preorder on Amazon.
