It was the very first type of dart ammunition released, preceding the Micro Dart and Mega Dart, which took major styling cues from Sharpshooter Darts. The Sharpshooter Dart is a yellow and red Mega Dart with fins on the sides of the shaft, which can probably easily get torn. A similar design was done with the Airtech Jet Squadron Jet, although that type of dart was based off of the standard Micro Dart and is designed after a fighter plane. The Sharpshooter was later re-released without the Sharpshooter Dart, and instead, standard Mega Darts, as the Sharpshooter Dart was discontinued.
Because of the overall design of these darts, especially with the fins, they have something of a resemblance to Target Master Arrows.
