It comes packaged with two Whistler Darts and instructions. The N-Strike Elite version comes packaged with two Elite Darts and instructions. The Zombie Strike version comes packaged in the Target Set. The Rebelle version comes packaged in the Knock Out Gallery.
It has a digital camo design, like the Longstrike CS-6 and the Raider CS-35. It also does not feature the N-Strike color scheme and instead features a color scheme similar to that of the Gear Up series. It currently holds the title of the smallest blaster released by Hasbro, beating out the Secret Strike AS-1. The blaster has no tactical rail due to its small size.
The majority of the blaster is one solid piece, rather than two halves like many others. The only separate pieces are the trigger mechanism, the plunger, and a plate from which the plunger projects. Like most blasters of its type, it doesn't accept Streamline Darts without a modification.
The Jolt was re-released in 2014 as a Zombie Strike blaster in the Target Set, and as a Rebelle blaster with the Knock Out Gallery blaster set.
In 2015, it was re-released under the N-Strike Elite line.
The Jolt has been released with the following color schemes:
- N-Strike (orange, black, gray, and orange)
- N-Strike Elite (orange and black)
- Clue Elimination (red, black, gray, and orange)
- Clue Elimination variant 1 (yellow, black, gray, and orange)
- Clue Elimination variant 2 (green, black, gray, and orange)
- Clue Elimination variant 3 (blue, black, gray, and orange)
- Zombie Strike (green, brown, gray, and orange; packaged with the Target Set)
- Rebelle (white, pink, aqua, black, and orange; packaged in the Knock Out Gallery)
- Code Red Collection (white, red, light blue, black, hot pink, and orange; packaged in the Sweet Mystery Set)
- Secrets & Spies (purple, violet, light blue, gray, and orange)
- Elite Repaint (blue, white, black, gray, and orange)
- Elite Repaint variant 1 (blue, white, black, gray, and orange)
- Elite Repaint variant 2 (clear orange and orange)
- Elite Repaint variant 3 (clear green and orange)
- Elite Repaint variant 4 (clear blue and orange)
- Elite Repaint variant 5 (clear, blue, and orange)
- Sonic FIRE (clear red, white, and orange)
- Sonic ICE (clear blue, white, and orange)
The Clue Elimination game comes packaged with four custom Jolts. There also exists an eight-Jolt party pack which also comes with sixteen Elite Darts.
A value pack of the Jolt is sold in Mainland China as the Jolt Target Value Set which includes an Elite Repaint Jolt, a target, and ten Micro Darts, although the packaging claims they're Suction Darts.
There is a value pack of the Mega ThunderBow that includes five Mega Darts, a Jolt, three Elite Darts, and three targets. The targets are recolored versions of the targets included with the Target Set, which also includes a Jolt.
Because of its size and simple internals, there is little to no room for modification. Removal of the air restrictor may actually cause problems with darts blocking the air chamber. It is, however, a good candidate for a blaster integration due to its size.
Reloading and firing
To reload the Jolt, load a dart into the barrel; pull the plunger handle downwards to prime the blaster.
Pull the trigger to fire a dart.
- The Jolt is one of two N-Strike blasters (the other being the Rayven CS-18) to have a non-standard colour scheme and have no number code on the blaster's shell.
- Strangely, the recolored Jolt used to be listed as an N-Strike Elite product on the Nerf website, despite only being listed as N-Strike on the package.
- When a Whistler Dart has been used excessively in the Jolt, it slides out slightly when primed. This is due to the air restrictor.
- With some practice, the Jolt can be bow-fired.
- In February of 2017, the Jolt became the subject of a YouTube comment meme, in which users in the comments sections of Nerf-related videos would claim that any blasters presented in such videos are a re-skin of the Jolt. The meme became further reinforced when YouTuber Coop772 uploaded a joke video about a conspiracy theory in which the Zombie Strike Longshot CS-12 was "revealed" to actually be a Jolt re-skin.
