A magazine is a High-Impact Round holding device used with Nerf RIVAL blasters.

Magazines come packaged with RIVAL blasters; the twelve round magazine can be purchased through a refill pack.


Magazines are compatible with High-Impact Rounds. They are loaded from the top, through an orange opening. Similar to many airsoft magazines, on the top next to the opening is a spring-loaded tab that holds the rounds in place. When the tab is pressed, the rounds inside the magazine have enough clearance to exit the magazine, and the force of the spring-loaded follower ejects all the rounds out. The tab is pressed when the magazine is loaded into a blaster to allow rounds to be fed. As a result, removing a loaded magazine may cause an additional round to fall loose.

Hoppers are simplified ammunition holders, with a similar function to magazines. Unlike magazines, hoppers store ammunition loosely and do not have followers; they instead rely on gravity to feed rounds into the blaster. Hoppers have an opening at the top for loading more High-Impact Rounds, as rounds can simply be thrown into the hopper for feeding. While hoppers are detachable from their patron blasters, their size makes carrying multiple hoppers for reloading cumbersome, in addition to how unwieldy it is to remove hoppers. Hoppers were mainly designed to be detachable for getting access to the blaster's feeding mechanism or to load the hopper somewhere else without it being attached to the blaster. As hoppers rely on gravity for feeding, they work best when right-side up, and sometimes they need to be shaken for rounds to feed properly. Hoppers have a written ammunition capacity, although it can be easily exceeded by squishing in more ammunition, although this may cause feeding issues.
