'Fortnite' and 'Nerf' Reveal New Scar Blaster

Nerf has teamed up once more with another gaming giant, this time bringing Fortnite's Scar weapon into the real world with the newly revealed blaster!

Though other weapons from the popular Battle Royale game will be coming from the team over at Nerf, the Scar is the first one to be officially revealed. Officially called the Fortnite AR-L Blaster, this is only the first of many to join the Fortnite line.

The full Nerf line is expected to be unveiled sometime soon before the holiday season fully kicks off, but we don't have an official release date at this time. What we do have, however, is the spiffy first look at the Scar in all of its Nerf-y glory in the image supplied by Hasbro above.

The AR-L Blaster will go live on June 1, 2019 and will retail for $49.99. The play-version of the gun will feature a rapid-fire motorized blasting mechanic and a flip-up sights for players to stare down. This design is to "allow players to focus their aim as they eliminate opponents and attempt to survive the storm."

If you're going to be in the area for TwitchCon this weekend, the above AR-L Blaster will be available to check out in-person for some hands-on revelry.
