While the most common gel blaster guns are assault rifles and submachine guns, we’ll take a look at the lesser known unsung heroes of the gel blasting world: the shotgun, handgun, and sniper rifle.
A shotgun is a relatively short ranged weapon traditionally used by the point-man; the first person to charge into a room.
M97 by Hanke – Gel blaster guns
The M79 shotgun from Hanke is a solid nylon build that fires in single or buckshot mode. It is entirely manual, requiring no batteries or gas.
The hopper holds the gel balls while the pump action powers the shots. While the internal hopper holds about 20 rounds, you can add an external hopper that holds another 80 gel balls.
The pump action shoots your gel balls at surprisingly high velocity at around 300 feet per second in single shot mode.
Switching between single rounds and buckshots is as easy as tipping the gun forward and pausing a little with the pump handle in a far back position, leaving some time for the gel balls to get in.
Some key features of the M97 by Hanke
- Strong nylon build
- Easy buckshots, with 5-6 rounds
- Metal barrel
- 20 gel balls internally
- 80 gel balls in external hopper
- Up to 300 FPS
With a 30cm and 7mm diameter metal barrel, the shotgun is excellent at close range of up to 25 meters. You can find the M97 here and at a very affordable $100.
A handgun is primarily used to back up the main weapon. If you’re cornered and have run out of ammunition, pulling out a handgun and firing is way faster than reloading the main weapon.
In addition, snipers often carry a backup handgun should they be chanced upon by any unsuspecting members of the opposing team.

The word “sniper” comes from a group of 26 birds from the Snipe family. These birds are highly alert and easily startled, rarely remaining in the open.
The bird’s erratic flight patterns also added to the difficulties hunting them.
The challenges faced while hunting these nervous birds gave rise to the term “sniper”.
Sniper emerged as a noun in the 1770s and now refers to the hunting prowess of skilled sharpshooters making shots from concealment or camouflage.
