QuickShot was a line of joysticks and other input devices produced by Spectravideo for video game machines and home computers including Atari, Commodore, MSX, Amiga, Amstrad, Sega and much more.

The world's first ergonomic joystick, the QuickShot, was developed and patented by Harry Fox and Peter Law in 1982 (U.S. Patent D271220).

Relatively famous was its Quickshot Maverick joystick, compatible with multiple consoles and home computers. In the late 1990s they expanded their line of products to PC joysticks and mouse.

During the 1990s the company marketed a handheld game console called the Quickshot Supervision, a UK version of an Asian console designed to compete with the Nintendo Game Boy.
