While I'm not hardcore into the world of foam warfare (yet... but I could see it happening), I have some blasters in the arsenal, like the NERF Vortex Revonix360. The FUSEFIRE is a different animal, and one that scores big in multiple areas. It's portable (though a tad on the heavy side), has storage for five discs, and can hold an additional 5+1 in the built-in magazine and chamber. When taking on the walking dead, night fighting is to be expected, and this is where the FUSEFIRE rocks hard: LED lighting that charges the included glow-in-the-dark discs. And it works so well, with discs going in white and coming out instantly with a brilliant, green, nuclear hue. And the kids love it.
Loading on this blaster is manual, with a pull-back "quick-load" slot, which drops a disc into the chamber via a spring-loaded mechanism. It takes a few runs to get used to, but is totally worth the learning curve. I actually had to stash this away for a bit to keep the little ones from being strapped all day long.
The NERF Zombie Strike FUSEFIRE Blaster is available now at retailers Nationwide
Rock Father-approved and recommended for kids (and grownups) ages 8+. Requires 3 AAA batteries (not included) which load into the grip (you'll need a small phillips screwdriver).
