Use the Squad Hero's Combat Arena as Nerf obstacles or Nerf target, and let it take your game to a new thrilling level.

An Overview On Nerf Obstacles

NERF foam is made out of a solid and spongy material that is soft, light and essentially harmless on contact. It is formed into balls and darts that are loaded into and shot out of plastic NERF shooters and dart guns. Other toy companies make similar products, which may be conversationally (but incorrectly) referred to as NERF toys. This category is filled with great toys that can be used on their own, but it is much more fun when groups of kids use them to compete against each other.

To up this game, companies now make obstacles that can be used to create play battlefields inside and outdoors. They are inflatable and can be blown up with an air mattress pump or similar small pump. Many have bottom compartments that you fill up with water; this adds weight to keep them stable.

The obstacles are usually tall enough for a child to hide behind, and they resemble objects like tires and barrels. While you can make your own NERF battlefield, inflatables do not have sharp edges and are more versatile. If it is too cold or raining outside, the obstacles can be played with inside if you have enough room.

A NERF inflatable target is not exactly an obstacle; it is for practicing your aim using the dart guns and shooters. These are great for solo play, and kids can challenge themselves by standing progressively farther and farther back. Adults can join in on the fun, too. The targets can also be placed on top of tables if they are not high enough. Targets and obstacle sets are both great for birthday parties or summer camps.

The Nerf Obstacle Buying Guide

  • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for inflating the obstacle and filling up the base with water.
  • Before setting up the obstacles, plan out a battlefield and place the pieces accordingly. They can get a bit heavy once they are set up.
  • Look for obstacles with integrated storage areas. These can also be part of the battlefield game.
  • Some obstacle kits come with their own pumps, plus patches in case the inflatables get holes. Otherwise, you should purchase these accessories separately.
