Centurion & CrossFire News!
The blaster's boxing seems odd...especially considering how big the Centurion already is. In the normal packaging, the main barrel is removed to reduce the size. However, in this configuration, the blaster is fully assembled and is sitting in an open-air box, which you usually only see on smaller blasters like the Firestrike and Strongarm. It's a Costco exclusive from what I've been able to tell.
Baidu (and a bunch of awesome blogs that have already reported on the matter), someone's got their hands on the highly-anticipated ZombieStrike CrossFire. Whether you like the green or not, this is the first Crossbow for the Nerf lineup in a long while. Pictures show 4 clear positions for darts up-front and the usual attachment points for accessories.
It's a little smaller than I thought, just a hair shorter than a RoughCut 2x4, but put a shoulder stock on this and you've got the chance to lay down some accurate and steady shots. I'm not sure how many darts it'll fire at once, as it almost looks like it's another multi-shot blaster. However, constantly front-loading a rifle-style blaster might make this a bit of a pain to use in games. Reload time is a crucial element in fast-paced games, so it'll be interesting to see if it is a front-loader... or if there's more to this blaster than we've seen so far.
