It comes packaged with thirty Overwatch High-Impact Rounds and instructions.

Details

The Soldier: 76 Blaster is a fully automatic, conveyor-belt system RIVAL blaster based after the Heavy Pulse Rifle used by the character Soldier: 76. It has a capacity of thirty High-Impact Rounds in its integrated hopper. Unlike most modern motorized RIVAL blasters, the Soldier: 76 Blaster is not compatible with the Rechargeable Battery Pack. Like all RIVAL blasters, there is a safety switch, located above the firing trigger.

On both sides of the blaster, there is a reciprocating "bolt" like the one in the game, that simulates recoil every time the blaster is fired. However, unlike in-game, the bolt reciprocates forward instead of backwards. If the bolt is blocked, the blaster will not actually fire. There is also a small blue light screen near the back of the blaster, in place of the in-game weapon's ammunition counter. The screen lights up when the blaster is revved up.
