The [[Jolt EX-1]] (known as the '''Jolt''' later) is a [[2011]] [[N-Strike]] blaster that holds 1 [[Whistler Dart]]. It is an improvement over its predecessors, the [[Secret Strike AS-1]] and the [[Hidden Shot]]. It features a compact priming rod under the handle, which one uses by pulling down on. It was re-released under many lines, and has received praise for being very powerful. It was initially quietly released in October 2011. It has been seen in many colors; the 2011 orange paint scheme model, the N-Strike Elite blue re-release in [[2013]] (this model added an orange muzzle on the front of the blaster), in [[Zombie Strike]] colors with a [[clip-on sight]], a feminine paint scheme and a bigger priming rod for its induction into the [[Rebelle]] line, and three clear colors; red, blue and green. It cost $4.99, and had good reviews.

The Jolt is a small concealed-carry type blaster. The priming piece got a redesign in the Rebelle version; it gained a ring so that it would be easier for people to grab. This cocking piece is held down by a greyish-black piece on the bottom of the blaster, which acts as the bottom cover for the handle. It is only held in by four screws. There are four even smaller holes on the bottom that act as an air outlet so that air can escape from the blaster when firing.

The Jolt acts as the concealed-carry blaster of the lineup.

It can also fill the role of being a last-ditch weapon, and can be pulled out when one is cornered due to its small size. Because it fulfills all the aforementioned roles, the element or surprise is a key factor of the Jolt's positions in the themes it is in.

* It looks very similar to the Mega Bltiz Triple Torch, which may be the blaster used to design the Jolt.
 
Reliability- 7/10 It can easily be concealed, and acts as a good tertiary weapon for sniping. However, the blaster can randomly fire when cocking and enemies can spot you. It also can break when stepped on or dropped, which is perfectly normal. The plastic holding the trigger can snap off with excessive use, so it is recommended to not squeeze the trigger when you're not playing with it. The handle is ergronomic to larger hands as it cuts into the hand when held tightly. When cocking the Jolt with a Dart Tag dart loaded, the handle also has a slight click so Dart Tag darts(2011 version) are also not reccomened to be used in this blaster.
 
 
Rate- 4/10 By the way it is fired, it can fire 1 dart every 3 seconds.
 
 
Overall- 9.25/10 It is very good blaster only let down by having a horrendous rate of fire and reliability issues.

The Jolt EX-1 (known as the Jolt later) is a 2011 N-Strike blaster that holds 1 Whistler Dart. It is an improvement over its predecessors, the Secret Strike AS-1 and the Hidden Shot. It features a compact priming rod under the handle, which one uses by pulling down on. It was re-released under many lines, and has received praise for being very powerful. It was initially quietly released in October 2011. It has been seen in many colors; the 2011 orange paint scheme model, the N-Strike Elite blue re-release in 2013 (this model added an orange muzzle on the front of the blaster), in Zombie Strike colors with a clip-on sight, a feminine paint scheme and a bigger priming rod for its induction into the Rebelle line, and three clear colors; red, blue and green. It cost $4.99, and had good reviews.

Description Edit

The Jolt is a small concealed-carry type blaster. The priming piece got a redesign in the Rebelle version; it gained a ring so that it would be easier for people to grab. This cocking piece is held down by a greyish-black piece on the bottom of the blaster, which acts as the bottom cover for the handle. It is only held in by four screws. There are four even smaller holes on the bottom that act as an air outlet so that air can escape from the blaster when firing.

Internals Edit

JoltInternals

Because of its size, the Jolt lacks any real internals; however, there is a spring, air restrictor, priming rod, plunger catch and firing trigger.

Position in Theme Edit

The Jolt acts as the concealed-carry blaster of the lineup. Because of its small size, it is suited to having a stealth role, and can be pulled out at any time and to surprise people with just that one shot. It can also fill the role of being a last-ditch weapon, and can be pulled out when one is cornered due to its small size. Because it fulfills all the aforementioned roles, the element or surprise is a key factor of the Jolt's positions in the themes it is in.

Blaster Co-relation Edit

This blaster is very similar to the Triad EX-3, both being stealth weapons.

Faults Edit

Like all other blasters, the Jolt has faults. The main fault of the blaster is the fact that it has no other known modifications other than the popular and easy method of drilling out its air restrictors. However, it makes a good candidate for blaster integrations due to its small size. Another major problem is the shallow capacity of only one dart, which will make anybody using this blaster reload often. The blaster is also very small, which makes it hard for older Nerfers to hold. Despite its size, it has an extremely comfortable handle with many grooves for the wielder's fingers.

How to Fire Edit

Step 1 - Load one dart into the muzzle.
Step 2 - Pull the cocking rod down.
Step 3 - Pull the trigger to fire a dart.
