Wii Zapper

Wii ZapperThough it may look more like a toy gun at first, the Wii Zapper puts together the Wii Remote and a Nunchuk which makes something that resembles a gun. The Wii Zapper was created primarily due to the fact that it could sometimes be difficult to hold the Wii Remote with a balanced hand, your arm would get tired if you try. So in short, Wii Zapper serves as a support.

The design of the Wii Zapper has the main purpose which is to provide comfort for its user. The games that make use of the Zapper are Medal of Honor, Heroes 2, Ghost Squad, Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return, Call of Duty: World at War, Quantum Solace and Wild West Guns.

The controller had undergone so many phases until the perfect design was achieved. The first prototype was presented last E3 2006 that featured a shotgun-like design and with a trigger hole and the analog stick is placed on top of the handle. The attachment is similar to Nunchuk attachment though it does not have a second button and an accelerometer. On this prototype, the Wii Remote is placed in the gun barrel and connects to its expansion port.

Then in E3 2007, a revised version of the Wii Zapper was revealed and it is similar to the Tommy gun but much closer to the Steyr AUG. This prototype holds the Wii Remote in the gun barrel and the Nunchuk in the rear handle. This design was made to make the Wii Zapper free from any attachments. Though there are some concerns with this design because players will be forced to hold the Nunchuk with their dominant hand and pull the trigger with the other hand.

The Wii Zapper is a great addition to Wii controllers since it will give you a realistic feel of the game especially when it comes to games that involves shooting.
