Returning to old models with new features, Dart Zone announced the Quad 4-pack. This $19.99 blaster pack will feature 2 Renegades and 2 Phantoms with the aforementioned improvements. While it may seem like you get a lot for your money, both these blasters have a relatively low capacity and rate of fire. So unless you're buying these for cosplay or very young fans, we'd reccomend skipping this one.

Finally the Dart Zone closed out with a clip fed blaster: the Havoc. Aside from conjuring memories of the long forgotten Tek Recon brand, this clip fed blaster tries to be daring but looks a bit underwhelming. This Model will fall under the "Adventure Force" line (as opposed to Covert Ops") and will be available at Walmart. It features 2 "powerclips" that each hold 8 darts. It's $9.99 price tag is attractive, but there are a few points to note on this blaster. First off it primes on the side, specifically the left hand side. Unlike the Doominator (which allows you to change the side you prime from), the Havoc is exclusively for right handed users. The clip moves through the blaster starting from the bottom up through the top. Unfotunately this makes any sort of sighting a bit difficult the further into the the clip you get, as it obstructs your view. No word yet if there will be larger clip capacities, but the DZ website will feature a four pack of these with 40 Superdarts for $14.99.
So that's it for Dart Zone 2016. Big thanks to DZ for inviting us to their webinar. We're excited to see how their darts stack up against Hasbro's offerings for the price. We're really diggin' the green and blue.
