It is not available in stores in Australia due to toy safety requirements.
Designed for Nerfers ages fourteen and up in mind, the RIVAL series features high performance blasters for "competitive team-based play." All RIVAL blasters are magazine-fed and feature an accessory rail very different from the standard tactical rail.
All products released under the series will be released under two color schemes: red and blue.
The RIVAL series was first announced at the 2015 New York Toy Fair.

- Each of the blasters in this series are named after a figure from ancient Greek mythology.
- The series of letters that follow each blaster name is Roman numerals that translate to what year the blaster was released (e.g. Apollo XV-700. XV is Roman numerals for "15", and the Apollo was released in 2015). However, "M" seems to be an exception, as it would instead designate the "Motorized" feature.
- The number in each name also holds a meaning. Every "100" in a blaster's name means one round of ammunition in the magazine capacity. For example: the Khaos MXVI-4000 has a capacity of forty rounds.
- Surprisingly, certain RIVAL blasters, such as the Zeus, can shoot Mega Darts. The Atlas, the Artemis, and the Nemesis have the potential to do so but have not been confirmed to be able to fire them.
