The Zapper is the most common obstacle found in Jetpack Joyride. Occasionally accompanied by missiles, zappers will generally appear in groups, forming a deadly electric field that Barry will have to weave through. Two variants can be found in the game: Rotating zappers will appear to have an orange or red glow, while normal zappers will have the usual yellow glow. As a run progresses, zapper fields will grow denser and longer, becoming one of the game's deadliest obstacles. Upon coming into contact with Barry, the zapper will immediately deactivate and Barry will lose either his current vehicle, shield or the run will end.

The beginning of every run, there will be 3 zappers in the same place every time. The first zapper will be on the ceiling, the second one on the ground, and the last on in the middle. The second zapper is used for the Good Work, Woody achievement.
