NERF Rival Knockout XX-100 Blaster -- Round Storage, 85 FPS Velocity, Breech Load -- Includes 2 Official Rival Rounds -- Team Red
About this deal
As expected, the rate of fire for a single shot, breech loading blaster is somewhat slow (who knew???). At best, with ammo on hand (or stored on the blaster), I could prime the blaster, load the breech, and fire at a target once every three seconds. Of course, that’s assuming reasonable aiming and not just firing for the sake of firing. Initially, products released under the series are released under two color schemes: red and blue. For an unknown reason, however, newer blasters from 2020 have only seen a release in either red and blue. The amount of red and blue blasters announced so far is still equal. 2022 did away with the team colors entirely and instead opted for a new blue and yellow color scheme.

On that topic: this blaster is breech-loaded! The orange lever above the trigger is not a safety; it actually releases the spring-loaded breech. This is a separate action from priming the blaster; it doesn’t matter which one you do first. It would, however, be wise to close the breech prior to firing the blaster. The real “safety switch” is a tiny tab under the trigger. Overall, the blaster feels as sturdy as other Rival entries. If you really want to use it, there’s a rail on top for accessories. Firing the Blaster
Each blaster features a mechanical safety that must be disengaged before the blaster's acceleration trigger or firing trigger can be pulled.

The number in each name also holds a meaning. Every "100" in a blaster's name means one round of ammunition in the magazine capacity. For example: the Khaos MXVI-4000 has a capacity of forty rounds.It should be noted that, in my sample size of one, that while the ball stays in the air for an appreciable time due to the imparted spin, it doesn’t seem to float as long as other Rival blasters. It’s still very usable, but I had to adjust my aim slightly. Overall Opinion
