This Black Friday Nerf deal can get you the Nerf version of Master Chief’s iconic MA40 for almost half off.
In the landscape of first-person shooter games, there are few that are quite as iconic as Halo. The Microsoft juggernaut has sold millions of copies, with protagonist Master Chief among the most recognizable characters in all of gaming.
The Nerf Halo MA40 is available for just $31.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab) – a $24 drop from the usual price of $54.99. Much of the Halo games’ popularity is down to the great feeling gunplay and iconic weapon designs, and now you can wield the MA40 rifle from the game in real-life… sort of.
This Nerf blaster, (opens in new tab) ideal for fans of Halo or those that just enjoy great Nerf releases, is motorized to simulate the automatic fire of the in-game gun – and requires 4 C batteries to help power it. It has a clip capacity of 10, and a slick reloading action that lets you swap the clip just like chief himself.
In terms of the weapon’s look, it certainly has the same outline as the classic weapon that was first introduced in the first Halo game, albeit in much more kid-appropriate (and Nerf-style) colors than the usual gunmetal.
If you want to feel like you’re stepping out of the escape pod onto the first Halo ring, this is the closest you can get, and there’s even an option to adjust the scope with additional Nerf options, plus an in-game weapon skin to unlock in Halo Infinite, the franchise’s latest entry.
