For several years now, the leader in toy guns that shoot foam balls and foam pellets has been Nerf, and they continue to come up with new innovations. Their new blaster for 2016 is the Rival Khaos MXVI-4000.
In 21015 the Rival range of toy guns was innovated, with the Nerf Zeus and Apollo guns, and they were big hits straight away. It didn’t take long before fanatical followers discovered that they could modify the Zeus into an automatic nerf gun. Well, it didn’t take long for the company to realize that this was something that the public wanted, so they decided to give it to them ready to shoot. Hence the introduction of the fully automatic Rival Khaos MXVI-4000 Blaster.
With their greater speed, distance range and accuracy, the Rival line of Nerf blasters are far superior to earlier models, and this new one, we predict, will be the king of blaster hill.
You have a choice of two colors with Khaos, red and black. They each come with a see-through magazine that holds 40 rounds of foam ammo balls. Want to know how fast you can empty them with the fully automatic? Just eleven seconds! Talk about a rapid rate of fire, huh?
There is a price to pay for so much Nerf firepower. That amount is in the $70 dollar range. To be precise, when we checked online at Amazon.com we were surprised to see there were two packaging variations with different price points. The standard packaged gun was $79.91, while the one in “frustration-free” packaging was $69.99. We suspect other toy retailers to be in the same competitive ballpark.
Ages 14 years and older is the range recommended by Nerf for this new gun. We envision that a wide age range will find it appealing, and anyone from teenage to adult, as long as they are Nerf gun fans, will like the first fully automatic Blaster in the Rival range. Armed with one of these babies, you can’t miss out in battle. Unless, of course, your opposition has two of them!

What Consumers Are Saying
This gun is awesome it is fully automatic but fires slow enough to only shot one at a time.
This gun never jams and the clip is easy to reload at any time. Then mag feeds from the back and is fed by a conveyor belt similar to the one on the hyperfire.
This gun is very powerful and mine shoots farther than the Zeus.
Thumbs Up Points
We aren’t sure whether or not Arnie has a Nerf gun, but it he ever did, this is the model he would choose. It is a battleship of a toy weapon, and its high-capacity magazine that holds 40 rounds of soft projectiles makes it a huge hit for fans of the Nerf genre.
Thumbs Down Points
Because of its hefty weight and large size, you are not going to carry this as a concealed weapon. Also, the $70 price point could be on the steep side.
Value in a Nutshell
Sure there are cheaper blasters, but there is only one Nerf Rival Khaos MXVI – the Ferrari of Nerf guns. One other cost factor not to forget is that you will need siz D-cell batteries to power that high-speed ammo feeder.
If you were one of the Nerf Rival Zeus fans who had to fiddle around and customize your own to make it an automatic, now you can appreciate how neatly Nerf has done you one better. The Khaos MXVI-4o00 is a large size blaster with firepower to match. We can’t picture any teenage gun fans who would not be proud to heft this one around.
