They use a type of pump-action, in that a "pump" is employed to push air through a tube, launching the missile. The ammo resembles a Cordak dart, with a ball at one end.
The Toa could use their minds to convert the projectile into whatever they could think of; for example, the projectile could become a fireball if so wished.
The Mistika Makuta's ammo allowed them to control mechanical parts.
The colours varied based on faction. The pump trigger on a Toa blaster was grey, while a Makuta blaster had a red trigger. Also, Toa ammunition would be a dark grey, while Makuta ammo was a pulsing green.
