Not to be confused with the older version of the Xcess.

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

It comes packaged with twelve X-Shot Darts.


The Xcess is an upgraded version of the original 2012 Xcess, with some changes. The new Xcess now features an advancement lever to swap the two six-dart cylinders, similar to the Nerf FlipFury, as opposed to the manual rotation required for the original. What differentiates the new Xcess from the FlipFury is that the lever only unlocks the cylinders in the former, still requiring some manual rotation to fully lock the cylinder into place to keep blasting. The Xcess also no longer has the ability to fire X-Shot Discs.

It advertises a firing range of up to eighty feet (twenty-four meters).
