The Jolt EX-1 (known as the Jolt in later packagings) is a 2011N-Strike blaster that can hold 1 Whistler Dart with default ammunition. It is an improvement over its predecessors, such as the Secret Strike AS-1 and the Hidden Shot. It features a compact priming bar under the handle, which one uses by pulling down on. It was rereleased under a multitude of lines, and has received praise for being extremely powerful, accurate and concealable, all fitted into a small package. It was initially released in 2011, albeit quietly, with an orange paint scheme, black trigger, and "JOLT" in big, black letters engraved on the side. It was later redesigned and given a rerelease in 2013, this time bearing N-Strike Elite colors, and an orange trigger and priming mechanism. The most noticeable change of the blaster was the addition of an orange muzzle on the front of the blaster, and it has remained there ever since it's induction onto the blaster. It was given yet another redesign in the same year, this time in Zombie Strike colors, and had a clip-on sight to help with aiming. It had another redesign in 2014, this time, affecting the entire shell. It was given a girly paint scheme and a bigger cocking rod, because of its induction into the Rebelle line. Because of it being released multiple times, it has become a popular blaster among many. It cost $4.99 when released.
