X-Shot blasters initially fired both water and darts. However, newer blasters dropped the use of water in favor of X-Shot Discs. Most modern blasters no longer fire a second ammunition anymore due to poor performance from both discs and water.
The brand was then expanded in late 2011 and 2012. For an extended period of time, there had not been any new blasters from early 2012, leading to a believed discontinuation, however, in late 2013, one new blaster was announced: the Micro.
Some X-Shot blasters began being marketed as Air Zone blasters starting in mid-2012.
In 2013, new series under the X-Shot name, X-Shot Excel and X-Shot Zombie, were released. Excel/Zombie blasters were essentially re-releases of all but 2011 blasters with stronger internals, new paint schemes and firing ranges of up to sixty-five feet.
The X-Shot Excel series was seemingly folded into its parent brand in 2016. Additionally, X-Shot and X-Shot Excel went through a color scheme change in 2016, from green, black, and yellow to yellow, orange, and navy blue. That same year, X-Shot Zombie and X-Shot Pink were discontinued, and Bug Attack was announced and released.
In 2017, X-Shot went through another color change from yellow, orange, and navy blue, to orange, navy blue, teal, and white.
