Tek Recon?!


Out of nowhere this shows up from the Toy Fair news.  All I have to say is wow.

-75ft ranges (video says 80)
-90! round capacity
- Awesome shell design

Sign me up!  This is definitely worth keeping an eye on.  The release date for these is projected to be in Aug-Sept of 2013.



Nice looking stock shown here

The app actually sounds really cool, it seems like it acts as a functional radar to show you positions of other people playing.

 This will cost $34.99,
The smaller pistol will be $19.99
Ammo refills will be 25 for $4.99.
The app is free and available for iOS and Android.

Video and more after the jump!!!




Close up of the app and cradle as well as the really nice metallic green paint job.










Pump action!











90 rounds!










The flags for capture the flag mode.  You scan the flag with the mobile device you run the app on and and it sends the info to the other player.









A close up of this new very strange ammo.










You can see another blaster from the line on the wall in the vid, enjoy!

  2. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooooo...
    Very interesting. I look forward to seeing some reviews... Might be fun for an indoor nerf war, I would think that ammo might get lost outdoors.

    1. Yeah, Halo is my favorite game series so this is going to be an interesting buy (if it ends up in AUS that is.)

  4. I don't think this thing will pick up because people might not like the jelly ring "ammo".

  8. Gotta love ammo variations. And the high capacity clip/magazine is incredible. I can't wait to get my hands on one

  10. As cool as this looks, I think that I'm happy with Nerf for now but I won't jump to conclusions. I'll look at the reviews and see what they're like.

  12. id imagine it works like a rubber band gun ,and so it'd get great ranges.

  14. Really Like the Looks and just from that video I believe it shows alot of promise!

  15. i bet it shoots those little discs like rubber bands, stretching them out and letting them go. If so then they will eventually wear out and you will have to buy replacements

  16. I hope this blaster will get to Singapore after release!

  17. HOLY G36Cs, BATMAN!
    Sign me UP. This is prpbably Nerf's real ace-in-the-hole against kids that mod their darts with tacks.
    Also, lovin' the shell design, and the paint job. Maybe digi-camo is up next?

  18. Is that ammo reusable? Or is it like the Max Force blasters where the ammo is supposed to cleaned up after shooting?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Idk... Per a refil pack is fairly cheap compared to nerf. A 90 round clip vs your 12 or 18... Ranges are about the same. Seems like nerf may have to up its game. Though to be fair, Nerf has alwase gotten ahead of its competition. I would like to see them pressured to make somethen to top their competitors.

  22. Nice to see nerf at last may have some "actual" competition for once. is the havoc by any chance slamfire or just prime n shoot? Do they come in other colors?

  23. I have had my Havok blaster for two weeks or so now. It is fantastic. consider your ammo disposable though. after a few runs through the gun it doesn't work reliably. which isn't bad at all considering cheap refills and you do still get the few uses per round (if you can find them lol)
