There are a number of options to go to when you want a backup blaster to hide away in case of emergency, or just for fun. The release of the Jolt may make many obsolete, but that doesn't mean in any way that they aren't worth checking out, at least for fun.
Many times before others have made their own lists of the best blasters of all time. Each blaster on my list has a detailed description of exactly why it made it on the list. There is also a section of blasters that came close but explains why they didn't make it. They are in order from small pistols to large rifles rather than by how good they are as they all have different qualities that make them great.
