iS SuperSoaker xp70_02tbThe replacement for the Super Soaker XP 75, the Super Soaker XP 70 has some definite improvements over its predacessor. The XP 70 has a separate pressure chamber making it easier to pump and shoot as well as being able to be filled while pressurized. Its small size also makes this a great weapon for covert operations though its original bright-yellow colour does not help. The water reservoir nicely slopes to the back allowing all water to be used. Pumping is quick and easy. Even with an XP-class nozzle, this weapon still packs a good punch. The reservoir comes with a tethered cap to prevent its loss.

Note: The Super Soaker XP 70 at iSoaker.com has additional colouring (the black detailing) applied to its stock frame.

Due to its small size, the Super Soaker XP 70 makes a great side-arm. The main problem is that this blaster can quickly drain its resources (not quite as fast as the CPS-models can, but pretty close). This weapon is great for any small to medium skirmishes and would provide a good back-up in larger water wars. Do note that it is still classified as a small calibre weapon.

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 pressure chamber. The tank provides a respectable amount of water considering its rate of fire. Easy to fill with a nice, tethered cap and transparent water reservoir.

Cons

This is a rather small weapon with limited water capacity. The XP-class nozzle is outclassed by all of the CPS-line of weapons.

Review:

This blaster makes a good heavy sidearm and skirmisher. In combat, the XP 70 works beter than my Steady Stream 2. The fact that it has a PC means that follow up shots can be made without repumping which is useful in a short charge. The nozzle packs a good punch without being overkill and with output 3x that of the Lightningstorm and range almost 1.5x that of it. This baby is ready for anything on the modern battlefield. The reservoir is good for 43 seconds of shot time being light without sacrificing capacity. With rapid tap pumps, you never seem to run out of water. In short, if you only do small fights, this makes a fine primary. And if you are hardcor,e it makes an excellent heavy backup.
