Quickshot was a brand of game controllers. They were originally part of Spectravideo, but around 1985 Spectravideo moved its US operations to Hong Kong to Bondwell Holding which was its major shareholder. Game controllers after this date may have Quickshot by Bondwell on them. Bondwell later sold the QuickShot brand to Tomai International.

Early Quickshot joysticks have the Spectravideo brand on them, while later models do not. These later models have a model number starting with QS-, while the older Spectravideo models mostly with SVI-. For Quickshot joysticks starting with SVI- see the Spectravideo page instead. Note that there is some overlap in the transition.

Quickshot made joysticks for pretty much all home computers in Europe. Some Quickshot models only worked on select systems while others had a system select switch and could work on a range of systems.

Quickshot game controllers were sometimes also re-branded in select markets such as the Archer and Tecnoplus brands.
