iS SuperSoaker xp75_02tbThe Super Soaker XP 75 is the first of the Xtra Power line of Super Soakers, featuring a larger air pump and sporting a larger nozzle. It packs a decent punch, but leaves a more to be desired. Not that the XP 75 is a poor quality blaster, but after handling larger blasters, the XP line shows its limitations. The XP 75 is based on the pressurized reservoir system. Its water tank size is decent for this class weapon, but the opening requires one to keep the blaster upright and fairly level to keep the water flowing when the tank is low. One nice feature is that the nozzle is removeable, allowing one to unleash what many describe as a "riot blast". The riot blast in a hard-to-aim-but-wide-area-cover blast of water ejected from the opened aperture. It will drain all pressure within the reservoir nearly immediately and range is reduced to about 2 meters but the area effected may be worth it. To get the most out of a riot blast, the tank must be fully pressurized. The XP 75 makes for a decent main weapon but its power is limited, especially when compared to the newer XP weaponry.

All in all, the Super Soaker XP 75 helped pave the way for the Super Soakers of today. It can hold up to most XPs and even low-rated CPS-based blasters. However, it is not adviseable to try facing off against any blaster with a 10x or higher-rated nozzle.

Pros

Small, light, easy to carry. Despite its size, it packs decent power. It also does not take too much effort to pump up the firing chamber and has the ability to "riot blast" one's opponents. The tank provides a respectable amount of water considering its rate of fire.

Cons

This is a rather small weapon with limited range due to how it is pressurized. The XP-class nozzle is outclassed by all of the CPS-line of weapons. This weapon also has a tendency to dribble if overpressurized. The most aggravating point of the Super Soaker XP 75 is the way the water reservoir attaches to the blaster. It is a pain to attach and remove with a good chance that the O-ring will wear out after multiple uses.

The XP75 is a rather crummy blaster. Its capacity is OK, but it could have used a separate compression chamber (That was fixed in the XP-95).

The XP75 shoots at an medium distance and doesn't shoot much water.

Here's a MAJOR WORD OF CAUTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The XP75's water tank has a fatal defect: If you pump it up too much, the tank will blow off the gun and go cartwheeling through the air, landing in someone else's backyard. In my squad (The Mandeloriens), we refer to this effect as "The 75 Blow-Out." The tank will fly off like a missile and if the tank comes down in someone else's backyard, you may not be able to recover it.

This can be used as a tactic: If fighting a person with an XP75, tell the guy to pump his gun as hard as he can. The guy, thinking, "more pumps more water!!" will obey. When he presses the trigger, he will suffer from the after effects of an XP75 blow-out (dizzyness, shock, unable to see through the cloud of mist). As soon as this happens, SHOOT 'IM!!!!!!
