Now, I’ve been known to play a FPS or two in my day, and sniper has long been my favorite position. There’s something so…
about patiently waiting for your enemy to step unwittingly into your sights. So a Nerf sniper rifle is right up my alley. Clearly, with the addition of a targeting scope and a fold-down bi-pod for stability, they’re appealing to a professional section of the market.
The weakness of snipers, of course, is close-range combat. To offset that, the Longshot
includes a removable one-handed single-shot blaster. You’ll never be caught unawares again. I told my girlfriend I wanted one for Christmas, but the look in her eyes suggests that that will
never happen in a million years.
