Not to be confused with the Switch Shot Super Soaker or the Switch Shots series of Super Soakers.

The Switch Shot EX-3 is an external single fire Nerf N-Strike blaster that was released in 2008 under the N-Strike series.

It comes packaged with the Wii video games Nerf N-Strike or Nerf N-Strike Elite; it can also be purchased separately from the games.

It comes packaged with either three Sonic Micro Darts or three Whistler Darts; this is up to the user's choice. The Nerf N-Strike Elite version comes with a Red Reveal accessory.


There is a tactical rail located underneath the blaster. On the left side is a small orange button, which allows users to open up the blaster to load in a Wiimote, allowing it to be used for the Nerf video games or other Wii shooter games.

Color schemes

The Switch Shot comes in the following color schemes:

  • Nerf N-Strike (yellow, black, and orange)
  • Nerf N-Strike Elite (blue and orange)

Reloading and firing

To reload the Switch Shot, load a dart into the blaster's muzzle. Pull the plunger tube back to prime the blaster.

Pull the trigger to fire a dart.


  • The poorly placed tactical rail underneath the barrel makes the Stampede bipod, Retaliator assault grip, and the Strikefire the only tactical rail accessories to not restrict access to the grip.  Other accessories like the light beam unit will restrict access to it.
  • The hole for the blaster's plunger system allows for the attachment of a Nunchuck controller when a Wiimote is inserted as well as the wrist strap attached to the Wiimote.
