( LASER X FUSION NSI)
The only thing you really need to learn is how to reload your blaster. With this blaster, for example, you just press and hold the trigger and shake it.
Fusion is a modular system that lets you customize your gear to fit your game.
The Fusion Set comes with two fusion blasters and accessories that can be used by one person OR shared by two players.
It comes with a front vest receiver and a micro receiver that can be worn as an armband or back vest. Separate them for 2 players, or one player can wear both. While the micro receiver is smaller, both receivers are equally as effective.
When both vests are worn together, the micro receiver activates a “Blast Blocker” that offers three seconds of “invincibility,” where you can’t get hit.
Fusion comes with everything you need for short- and long-range play; including a Spotting Scope, Long-Range, and Wide-Range Adapters feature 20-blast rapid fire.
MSRP: $79.99 for complete set
Accessories sold separately.
