The Best Nerf Rival Series Guns & Accessories
Designed for the competitive Nerf player, the Rival Series focuses on Accuracy, Power and Speed.
Precising Battling is how Nerf Rival likes to bill itself. The series contains a wide variety of Nerf Gun models, including various firing rates, magazine limits, and of course, shapes and sizes. Included in the lineup are Pistols and Shotguns.
There's also a Greek & Roman Mythology spin that will make you nostalgic for the time you spent learning it all in 6th grade. The model names, for instance, include Artemis and Jupiter.
The newer models in the Rival Series are a bit more tactical, with names such as Pathfinder and Vision.
Nerf Rival Series Blasters
Nerf Rival Nemesis MXVII-10K
A high capacity hopper and a penchant for target elimination, the Nerf Rival Nemesis has the accuracy to hit on shot #1, though the next 99 are a bonus. The MXVII-10K is a fully motorized Nerf Blaster that comes with 100 high-impact rounds. Mint is how we'd describe the weapon.
The only cons are the higher end price tag and the 5lb weight. Oh, and don't forget to get the rechargeable battery pack.
Nerf Rival Artemis XVII-3000 Blue
Artemis was the Goddess of the Hunt. No reason you can't be too with the Rival Artemis XVII-3000 Blaster from Nerf. The gun comes with 30 High-Impact Rounds to turn your opponent into figuratively-speaking, Swiss Cheese.
Options include Slam Fire and easy-to-reload magazine. The Artemis is also able to undergo modification, usually in the form of a spring upgrade.
Nerf Rival Pathfinder XXII-1200
The only path was can think of that this blaster is finding is the trail of victory from laying down a foam bullet spray on your enemy's position. Forget the adjustable sight, pop the cartridges in and out and unleash a hailstorm of foam bullets upon your foes with the Nerf Rival Pathfinder XXII-1200.
12 shots. Rinse. Repeat.
12 shots. Rinse. Repeat.
And so on.

Nerf Rival Vision XXII-800 Blaster
The Rival Vision is a highly accurate sidearm. The 8-round integrated magazine and the pull-back priming bar are a nice touch. The 90 fps also doesn't hurt. Nerf improved the dynamics of the barrel and thus, the accuracy on the 2022 model. It even features an adjustable sight.
It's a slick pistol.
Nerf Rival Kronos XVIII-500

Nerf Rival FAQs
What makes the Nerf Rival High-Impact Accu-Rounds special?
The uniform shape of the high-impact round allows the Nerf Rival Guns to be fired with backspin on the ball, as well as being able to be reloaded rapidly.
How do the Nerf Rival Guns get their names?
The model names help to identify the functionality, year, and magazine capacity of each model. For instance, the Nerf Rival Nemesis MXVII-10K is an automatic blaster that was first made in 2017.
To be fair, the magazine capacity and the numbering system doesn't always lineup 1:1, so be sure to verify if you're concerned prior to purchase.
