iS SuperSoaker xp105_02tbThe Super Soaker XP 105 was a good medium assault rifle for its time. Looking like a smaller version of the Super Soaker XP 150 in design, it holds a respectable amount of water, has two pressure chambers as well as a pressure gauge so one can determine how much pumping is needed. Its pump volume is considerably larger than most current blasters and charges with only a few pumps. Pumping is quick and easy, giving this XP-class weapon a good punch. However, its half-twist on reservoir is a little annoying to attach and tends to be tricky to completely empty when the water level gets low. Overall, its size and balance are nice, allowing one to hold one's ground even against the lower CPS-based weapons.

iS SuperSoaker xp105_15tbGreat even as a primary weapon, the Super Soaker XP 105 is good for small to medium skirmishes and can hold awhile in large ones. Just beware of water blasters like the Super Soaker SC Power Pak and any CPS-class weapon. It is, however, not recommended if opposing larger blasters with nozzles rated at 10x or higher.

Pros

Nice size, light, easy to carry. Despite its size, it packs decent power. It also does not take too much effort to pump up the pressure chamber. The tank provides a respectable amount of water considering its rate of fire. The pressure gauge is also good for figuring out how much more pumping needs to be done.

Cons

This is a rather small weapon compared to the others out there. The XP-class nozzle is outclassed by all of the CPS-line of weapons. The half-twist on reservoir can wear down at the threads and makes refilling the blaster more cumbersome than the newer cap-based reservoirs.

One summer my brothers and I all had XP105's, probably got it in 96 or 97 and it lasted a good 3-4 years.  We used them almost every day of summer while they still worked.  I found mine with water frozen in it one winter, and decided to fire it anyway.  I put a full charge on it and when I fired the nozzle, it broke and shot off the end.  I still own the gun because it now acts like a shotgun as it blows all the air and water in the chamber in an explosive 1 second blast.

Review: The XP 105 has a good size for scouting and kamikaze men. light and powerful enough to take down enemies at close range. Not the type of far range guns. This gun is more like the charging type of gun. I recommend it to anyone who has the courage to run to people in the face and shoot them. I love it. Sadly, my XP 105 pump handle broke when I was playing with my friends one day and I could not fix it. By that time, they were not in stores anymore. It will be remembered as one of my most favourite guns, also one of my first guns.

Power: High

Price: Approx. $20 CDN

The XP 105 was released in 1996, the second generation of XP's. This blaster has a nice size and weight, but is fairly hard to pump if you are young or aren't strong enough. The power of the blaster is very high for an XP which often gives a sting to the receiver of the blast. Another popular method of soaking the enemy with this blaster is to remove the nozzle and fire which releases all of the water in the reservoir in a big BANG. The end result is heavy soakage. The pressure gauge is a nice feature though it may move around to a different starting point. You can also place balloons (make sure they are layered together) in the pressure reservoirs to make it like a CPS as the balloons act like the rubber bag in all CPS blasters. This gives it a definite pressure boost. The main use of the XP 105 is light-medium skirmishes. It also makes a good secondary weapon. Watch out for larger blasters as they will be a problem for this weapon (especially CPS' and Monsters).

PROS: Very high power for a water blaster it's size, nice water payload, excellent size to weight ratio, riotblast (woo hoo!).
CONS: Pumping could be easier, pressure gauge is off occasionally. Pumping could be easier, pressure gauge is off occasionally, and the bottle should have been constructed differently.
OVERALL RATING: 9/10

My good old XP 105 is a good soaker in my opinion. I've had it for close to four years and its never broken before. It still works today. This water blaster has a good reservoir although now the XP 310 has approximately 25% more water. The only problem with the reservoir is the difficulty one has in removing it and re-attaching it. The reservoir is however a good size and fits into most house-hold kitchen sinks. Good range and firepower makes a great ally although the CPSs outclass it now. It takes very few pumps to fully charge but it is difficult to pump and has a pressure gauge to tell how much you have. Although when the pressure gauge got to the red area, it would suddenly jump to maximum at the next pump so it wasn't that accurate. It's a light-weight water blaster even fully loaded.Two pressure tanks make it good even by today's standards.

Pros: Comes equipped with two pressure tanks and only requires about five or so pumps to fully charge. Pressure gauge available to tell how much its pumped. Lightweight blaster even when its fully loaded. Fair amount of water storage and has good power and range.
Cons: Hard to pump and the reservoir is difficult to reattach. This can be bad when your in the heat of battle and you need to refill your blaster. And unfortunately, you won't find the XP 105 in many stores(if any). So it would be hard to get now. Afterall it came out in 1996.

I would not recommend this water blaster to anyone. Here is why: The bottle is a weird shape so that makes it hard to reload. It shoots fairly far, but I find the stream quite puny. The handle leaks badly. This problem happens with almost all XP 105s I have heard of so far. The blaster is a little large and can get annoying when in long battles because of its weight (depending on how full it is with water) and the fact that the handle leaks pretty badly. It also squeaks when you pump it. I am not meaning to be a downer, but I do consider the XP 105 UNRELIABLE. I would not recommend buying this blaster.
