The Nemesis MXVII-10K is a fully automatic blaster. It features two tactical rails: a long rail on top of the blaster and a smaller one below the muzzle. On either end of the top rail are integrated, flip-up sights.
Unlike previous blasters, the Nemesis uses a large removable hopper with an agitator that advances the rounds into its flywheels. The feeding mechanism will not operate when the hopper is removed.
The Nemesis was originally leaked online on January 20, 2017. Five days later, it was officially announced on multiple news media sites.
The Nemesis has been released with the following color schemes:
- Team Red (red, black, and orange)
- Team Blue (blue, black, and orange)
Reloading and firing
To reload the Nemesis, load up to one hundred foam rounds into the included hopper. Although the Nemesis can hold more than one hundred rounds in its hopper, to load more than one hundred is not recommended due to jamming. Place the hopper into blaster's hopper receptacle.
To fire a round, hold down the acceleration trigger to rev up the flywheels. Hold down the firing trigger briefly to fire one round, or hold the trigger for automatic firing. It may take a moment for the flywheels to come to full speed; firing before that can reduce the blaster's range.
- The Nemesis MXVII-10K is named after Nemesis (also known as Rhamnousia or Adrasteia), a goddess in Greek mythology who enacts vengeance on those who succumb to hubris (arrogance before the gods).
- With its 100 round hopper, the Nemesis MXVII-10K has the second-highest ammo capacity of any Nerf blaster in history, the first highest being the N-Strike Elite Hail-Fire, which was advertised as having a 144-dart capacity and can hold even more if used with the flip-clip system. However, since the Hail-Fire is fed through the use of multiple clips, the Nemesis holds the distinction of the highest ammo capacity among single-fed blasters. Along with that, it is also the highest-capacity RIVAL series blaster released by far.
