For the Nerf dart blaster feature of the same name, see Tactical rail.
Tactical rails are used to mount accessories to RIVAL blasters. While the majority of tactical rails are integrated into their blasters, the Zeus MXV-1200 comes packaged with its side rails detached, to save packaging space. Additionally, the Nemesis hopper has a tactical rail at the top, made of the same clear plastic that the rest of the hopper is made of, and thus is technically removable. Unlike normal tactical rails, they do not have a lock, thus attachments can be attached anywhere on the rail that has "teeth".
Nerf accessories compatible with standard tactical rails can be attached to the RIVAL tactical rail by snapping them on, instead of sliding them into place, however, they will be less stable.
So far, all blasters under the RIVAL series feature tactical rails.

- While the original tactical rail may have been inspired by the Picatinny rail system, the RIVAL tactical rail has a much more similar appearance and functionality to it. Despite this, the two are not compatible and Picatinny-based gear can only be mounted on a RIVAL blaster with modifications.
