It is broken up into "Series" of releases, each consisting of three blasters with an overall theme.
Micro Shots was developed by Hasbro, with partnership from design studio Volume Studios.
The series was originally leaked in summer of 2017, in the form of images of the Star Wars blasters. It was then officially announced shortly after at Hascon. Releases up to Series 3 were teased; the Series 3 blasters - the Micro Shots Crosscut, FlipFury, and the Doublestrike - have yet to be released. In early July 2019, Series 3 Micro Shots were spotted on shelves in Hong Kong.
