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 Nerf, beating out the Secret Strike AS-1.This blaster has remarkable range.
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 where the plunger comes out from. Unlike most blasters of its type, it accepts Streamline Darts with absolutely no modification.
It was re-released in 2013 with a newer blue color scheme that is similar to that of the N-Strike Elite color scheme. This re-release features a thicker muzzle and also drops the EX-1 from the name.
The Jolt will be re-released in 2014 as a Zombie Strike blaster in the Zombie Strike Targeting Set.
Re-shells and color schemes
The Jolt has been released with the following color schemes:
- N-Strike (orange and black)
- "N-Strike Elite" (blue, orange, and white); retooled muzzle
- Dart Tag (blue, orange and two shades of gray); partial retool as the Stinger
- Blue, black, and orange (Clue Elimination game); slight custom retool
- Green, black, and orange (Clue Elimination game); slight custom retool
- Red, black, and orange (Clue Elimination game); slight custom retool
- Yellow, black, and orange (Clue Elimination game); slight custom retool
- Zombie Strike (neon green and black); N-Strike Elite version of the sculpt
- Rebelle (white and pink); complete re-shell as the Sneak Attacker
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.
Because of its size and lacking 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 tube downwards to prime the blaster.
Pull the trigger to fire a dart.
- The Jolt EX-1 was ripped off by an unknown company and was renamed the Spitfire. All Nerf-related imagery was removed from the packaging and blaster. It comes package with three blue darts and a dart holder to clip on top of the blaster.
- The Jolt is one of two N-Strike blasters (the other being the Rayven) 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.
