The Switch Shot EX-3 is a single-fire blaster. It doubles as a controller for use with the Wii Remote. On the left side is a small orange button which allows the blaster's top half to be removed, which contains its internals. This frees up space to load a Wii Remote inside. Pulling the Switch Shot's firing trigger will actuate the controller's B button, making it a potential controller with not only the Nerf Wii games, but other games with a similar control scheme. The rest of the buttons are exposed, allowing them to be pressed as well. When in controller mode, the back of the blaster is exposed, providing space to attach a Wii Nunchuk to the controller as well.
There is a tactical rail located underneath the blaster.
It advertises a firing range of up to thirty-five feet (ten meters).

Join the virtual battle in NERF N-STRIKE from EA, with this air-powered, foam-dart blaster that converts into a controller for your Wii Console video game system (not included). Simply slide out the launching mechanism, and snap in your Wii Remote controller (not included) to turn the SWITCH SHOT EX-3 blaster into a cool controller that can be used with most Wii games (sold separately). Convert this blaster back to a dart blaster and launch the included whistling SONIC MICRO DARTS ammo up to 35 feet away!
The Switch Shot has been released with the following color schemes:
The Switch Shot EX-3 features a direct plunger system.
- The location of the tactical rail makes smaller attachments such as the Pop-Out Bipod, Assault Grip, and the Strikefire the only tactical rail accessories to not restrict access to the grip. Other accessories like the Dual-Mode Light Beam will restrict access to it.
- An alternative, albeit slower way to reload this blaster is to swap the empty upper half of the blaster with a different, loaded one.
