Kids bored this summer? Or maybe you just fancy a bit of fun in the sun! Then look out for Hasbro’s latest hi-tech NERF gun, the LASER OPS PRO, coming later this month from £29.99.
Each NERF LASER OPS PRO blaster includes three play modes: solo, team or free-for-all. The blasters feature a multi-directional receiver dome, unlimited ammo, team light indicators, visual/sound effects to notify players they’ve been hit, and a display to show current health and ammo capacity.
Players can amp up their laser battles with the free NERF LASER OPS PRO app that can be downloaded on select iOS and Android devices. It offers real-time battle intelligence allowing players to customise their blasters, track performance, earn power-ups, and locate opponents during battle.
The NERF LASER OPS PRO offering includes the ALPHAPOINT blaster at £29.99 which fires a single shot burst with health, ammo, and team indicators on the back.
Meanwhile the DELTABURST blaster at £49.99 fires a three-shot IR burst with kickback action and features an LCD screen on the back of the blaster displaying real-time health status and ammo capacity.
Each blaster comes with an armband and solo attachment for single-player battling with the NERF LASER OPS PRO app. The ALPHAPOINT blaster is also available in a 2-pack for £44.99 with two blasters and two armbands.
Says Craig Wilkins, Senior Marketing Director, Hasbro UK & Ireland:
“We’re excited to challenge NERF fans to up their game with the NERF LASER OPS PRO segment, which combines the exhilaration of a laser battle with the technology, design, power and performance that is synonymous with the NERF brand.”
West Ham United Footballer Jack Wilshere, pictured above, led the first battle at the NERF LASER OPS PRO launch event, demonstrating the action-packed play as well as the innovative design and advanced technology.
“Being a big NERF fan and a father of three, I’m really excited about the launch of NERF LASER OPS PRO, ” he added.
“It’s great to have fun with friends and family, and so I am looking forward to lots of NERF fun with the kids to help me relax from our hard pre-season schedule!”
The NERF LASER OPS PRO line is now available for pre-order in the UK at select online retailers and will be available to purchase from online and in store later this month.
