The Recoil is an X-Shot blaster that was released in 2018.

It comes packaged with eight Excel Darts.


The Recoil is a small single-fire blaster. Its unique feature is that the top shell of the blaster "recoils" or "kicks back" when the blaster is fired - both of its names reference this function. The firing trigger primes the recoil mechanism in a similar fashion to that of a dual-action priming mechanism.

It has two dart holders underneath its muzzle.

It advertises a firing range of up to ninety feet (seventy meters).
