The GlowShot is a Nerf blaster that was released in spring of 2016 under the N-Strike series. It requires two "AAA" batteries for its glowing function to be operated.

It comes packaged with three Elite Darts and instructions.


The GlowShot is a small single-fire blaster; its main feature is its ability to have its shell glow. The glowing function is activated by holding in a long, orange button on the back end of the blaster's handle.

The GlowShot's plunger has a screw in it, and is similar to the Jolt EX-1's plunger. It also utilizes a short-stroke prime made for lower performance and lighter prime weight.
