Nerf Rival Khaos MXVI-4000 Blaster (Is rapid-fire blasting better?)

By Kelsey

0 from 0 review(s)

I love any opportunity to play with Nerf guns. Even better than that, I love any opportunity to kick butt with my Nerf guns. I had the opportunity to play with the Nerf Rival Khaos MXVI-4000 Blaster which has been very popular going into the holiday season.

Age Range: 14, 15, 16, 17, 18+ year olds

My Nerf Rival Khaos MXVI-4000 Blaster arrived in the standard packaging. I have never had problems opening and assembling previous Nerf guns, however, this one was different. It’s a large and rather heavy gun so it is secured in its packaging with several ties. The ties are a cardboard/paper consistency and very thick. Even with my sharp scissors I struggled to cut through them. Then on top of being hard to cut, they are also glued into the package, so even when cut you have to pull them hard to break them free. After much frustration, I did finally get the package opened and when I was done I had 1 Nerf blaster, 1 magazine and a package of several small high density Nerf balls.

The Playtime Experience

In order to play, I had to install 6 D batteries in the Nerf Rival Khaos MXVI-4000 Blaster and load the magazine. It took a little bit to get the trick of locking the magazine in position in order to load the Nerf balls correctly. Once finished the magazine is fully loaded and you are ready to play.

Things I Liked

This Nerf Blaster is powerful and extremely fast. The rapid-fire was great and I could see really kicking some butt when paired against other Nerf blaster.

Things I Didn't Like

The Nerf Rival Khaos MXVI-4000 Blaster unfortunately requires that I take stock out in batteries to operate it. The gun is powerful but I foresee it using batteries rather quickly and 6 D batteries are a lot of batteries to replace. Additionally, the balls are definitely a choking hazard for younger children and something to consider if there are young children in your home. Since they bounce off most surfaces and roll away, you would need to be really diligent in order to prevent choking.

Appropriate Ages

The Nerf Rival Khaos MXVI-4000 Blaster is recommended for users over 14 years of age. I found this strange since most Nerf blasters are rated for 8 and older. I can’t see any real reason for the difference other than the magazine is a little trickier to load in the gun. When talking appropriate ages I would definitely keep in mind the aforementioned choking issue for young children in the home.

Final Note

I really liked my play experience with the Nerf River Khaos Blaster. Although I did spend a good amount of time looking for the Nerf balls and that is a consideration with purchasing this blaster. It is on Amazon.com’s holiday list for must have Nerf guns this year and I think this is largely due to the speed and power this Nerf gun offers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44PsJbp8FVM (You may also like: 69 Best NERF Guns for Epic Pretend Play Battles)
