For the current X-Shot Micro, see Micro (2018).

The Micro is an X-Shot blaster that was released in 2013.

It comes packaged with three X-Shot Darts.

Details

The Micro, unlike the blasters in the original X-Shot line that fire both darts and water, only fires darts and no other ammunition type. It is very small and compact, similar in size to a Buzz Bee Tek 3, and features storage for one dart on the top of the blaster. The blaster is primed by the priming mechanism at the back of the blaster.

Like the Tek 3, the blaster's priming mechanism dangles, presumably to allow more space and comfort when concealed. The ammunition storage at the top of the blaster can also double as an iron sight.

History

The blaster was first announced on May 7, 2013 by Zuru's X-Shot Facebook page. The name was revealed at a later time. The Micro was the first blaster to be released under the X-Shot brand in 2013, and was later followed up by the Scope. It took over the spot of smallest blaster in the X-Shot line, which was previously held by the Dual, and was one of the smallest blasters on the market by a recognized brand.

It was re-released under the Air Zone brand some time in late 2013 under the name Micro X Shot.

In late 2013, the Micro was one of two blasters to be re-released in all three of the three new X-Shot lines (X-Shot Excel, X-Shot Pink Series, and X-Shot Zombie), alongside the Stalker. For these new lines, the Micro was packaged with new Excel Darts.

The Micro was re-released in 2018 with changes to its shell and performance.

Trivia

  • The Micro is currently the smallest blaster in the X-Shot line.
  • The Micro can be compared to the Nerf N-Strike Jolt, which is the second smallest official Nerf blaster that fires darts.
  • The Micro includes an iron sight, despite a blaster its size not requiring one. Other competitors such as the Tek 3, Derringer and Secret Strike AS-1 all lack iron sights.
