Wii Duo Shot (GS)
A Nice Accessory
This has a simple design that works well Its not too heavy or too light when the Wiimote is inserted, and it is also balanced well. The triggers work well, but if you want them to be more sensitive you could add tape to either the A button or B button depending on which is needed. However, I haven't had any troubles with the triggers, and I own 2 of them. If I have any complaints about the Duo Shot, its that the secondary trigger doesn't feel as springy as the main trigger and that near the bottom of the grip isn't rounded enough where my pinky rests, and when I grip the gun too hard it sort of feels uncomfortable. These are only minor drawbacks though, if you are looking to buy a pistol to put a Wiimote into, get this one.
Solid and Fun
After having used the Nyko Perfect Shot and not having it work at ALL, I have decided to change periphs and try the duo shot. I wasn't too familiar with it, but thought I would give it a try. After purchasing it, I booted up Dead Space: Extraction and was pleasantly surprised at how this gun worked. It felt easy to grip, with a nice weight, and fluid movement. No more hiding cords inside the tube like the Wii Zapper and no more worrying about connectivity issues like with the Perfect Shot. The Duo Shot has a simple and effective concept: 2 triggers, top pulls a plastic bar that sweeps the A button, bottom forces a hard plastic insert to press the B button. I played for an hour on DS:E without any issues. It's easy to pop the Wii remote in and out of as well. So for $15, it's a great periph. to have.
This product is very great.
I just got the duo shot today. Both of the trigers work perfect on mine. I use it on house of the dead over kill an it work perfect for me. I do beleve all kind of gamers would like this .
a few flaws but still useable
So, Bought this for Metroid and a few other reasons. when I loaded my wiimote into it and pulled the trigger a few times the A trigger didn't work a few times, I put a rubber band around the barrel and the little bar arms and fixed that issue. The crock of the gun (I think that s what its called) the position where the handle meets the rest of the gun could have been more rounded for a better feel. Removing the wiimote is a tad difficult but not entirely impossible the little hook thing gets stuck in the crevice between the face and the body of the wiimote, maybe a release latch or one fewer hook would have made that easier. Overall nice product.
Great for price, but not lengthy use.
After watching a RE movie, I said I want to collect the games. So, I looked up RE:4 on Wii and thought awesome I'll get a gun accessory to play that (found that the Perfect Shot wasn't compatible), almost thought I couldn't, but then I found this gun at Gamestop for $15. Features: Trigger for A(gun trigger)B(under trigger), room for wrist strap, hole for nunchuck cord, weighty like a real gun and accurate. Drawbacks: As far as RE:4, the gun is tiring to hold after a while, in game knife use, and shaking out of zombie's grip requires uncomfortable and inefficient movement of the gun. RE:4 is fun to play with this accessory, but the gun is more of a novelty than a game experience enhancer.( If the nunchuck could control the knife, my view might be only slightly different, I'm sad to say.)
DO NOT BUY THIS! I bought this yesterday and played The House Of The Dead 2&3 Return for one day and the top trigger which is supposed to press the A button does not work. It wont press the A button anymore. If you want to buy a pistol for Wii, buy the Nyko Perfect Shot. I have not yet tried it but im sure its better than this trash.
not too bad
i bought this gun mainly for metroid prime trilogy...found that the gun worked just fine with my wii remote for about an hour after that it was hit and miss on the a button... i decided to try it with the nyko wand plus controller and it works way better with that than the nintendo controller mainly due to the fact the nyko button is squar so you only have to pull the trigger half way for it to shoot which is nice... i recommend getting a nyko wand plus it has wii motion plus built in and bigger buttons it really helps out with wii first person shooters with this gun accesory plus its $10 cheaper then nintendos controller
Worst product I ever got at Gamestop
Don't even waste your money this bull, I got it for free through my reward points, so doesn't bother so much. Just another toy I can put in my yard sale. lol
For players and gamers
The grip hurts the pinky finger, and sometimes,... The "A" button doesn't work... But, other than that... It's a pretty good item.
