X-Shot blasters initially fired both water and darts. However, newer blasters dropped the use of water in favor of X-Shot Discs. Most modern blasters no longer fire a second ammunition anymore due to poor performance from both discs and water.
The series was then expanded in late 2011 and 2012. For an extended period of time, there had not been any new blasters from early 2012, leading to a believed discontinuation, however, in late 2013, one new blaster was announced: the Micro.
Some X-Shot blasters began being marketed as Air Zone blasters starting in mid-2012.
In 2013, new X-Shot Excel and X-Shot Zombie blasters were released. Excel blasters were essentially re-releases of all but 2011 blasters with stronger internals, yellow paint schemes and ranges of up to sixty-five feet. The Zombie blasters were essentially the exact same as the Excel blasters except with grey paint schemes.
The X-Shot Excel sub-series was seemingly folded into its parent series in 2016.
