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 are slotted at constant intervals and do not require a locking tooth for attachments. Thus attachments can be attached virtually at any segment of the rail.
So far, all blasters under the RIVAL series feature tactical rails, with the exception of cross-promotional RIVAL blasters such as the Overwatch RIVAL blasters.

- While the original tactical rail may have been inspired by the Picatinny rail system, the slotted 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.
