And the buzz just keeps on going for Tek Recon! From Toy Fair now to E3… who knows what’s next?
Fresh update from Tek Recon. Pretty much says it all right there. And holy crap. A proper semi-auto trigger pull OR pump-action fires the blaster, you can use either mode. The pump-action works a bit better for rapid fire, while the trigger I guess allows for that steady shot.
What I wonder is if there is a range distance between either mechanism, as that is what it sounded like in some earlier updates. No priming the blaster like a shotgun then pulling the trigger as I initially reported/thought, but just straight up semi-auto action. No flywheels, no priming, no additional steps. Just point and shoot. Havok or Hammer Head, take your pick.
Well done, Tek Recon. Well done.
$19,000+ raised with 24 days to go! Not too shabby at all.
