Restock Alert: Arm Yourself With Nerf’s Halo-Inspired MA40 blaster

Halo Infinite is coming out soon. The multi-player launched recently, and I suddenly noticed a lot of kids running around the neighborhood with Nerf guns playing Slayer. I knew the company was making soft dart weapons based on the long-running FPS, but I noticed they were perpetually out of stock.
While checking my regular beat of websites for news, I saw that Entertainment Earth would soon restock the MA40 Halo dart gun. The same can be said for the Mangler and the upcoming smaller version of the Needler.
The MA40 motorized dart gun is priced at $52.99 and comes with ten soft darts. I’m not sure if this version of the weapon has been upgraded to detect third-party darts. But, yes, that is a thing that is happening…
While Nerf isn’t usually the kind of stuff I’d cover on this site, I do know that Christmas is just around the corner, and the release of the newest Halo title is sure to bring lots of kids screaming to their parents about getting them the Nerf guns. So, I’m doing you a favor and letting you know where to get them.

Challenge opponents with this motorized, clip-fed blaster that unleashes 10 darts in a row. It comes with a removable, 10-dart clip and 10 Official Nerf darts, enough to fully load the clip. The Nerf Halo MA40 blaster includes a game card with a code to unlock this blaster’s color scheme in the Halo game.* To start playing, hold down the acceleration button to power up the blaster’s motor, then press the trigger to fire 1 dart. Press the trigger again to fire another dart. It comes with a rail riser that attaches to the blaster’s tactical rail.

Where was this cool Nerf stuff when I was a kid? We had to make do with blast caps, BB guns, and throwing oranges at each other. You know, the stuff that would leave permanent scars! Ah, those were the days. When parents thought we were not being foolish in the woods with replica firearms and other projectiles.
Oh, crap … where is my kid right now?!
