iS_switchshotsuper_01tbThe Nerf Switch Shots Super is the smallest of the dual-mode hybrid blasters made by Hasbro. Some question the usefulness of a hybrid blaster in a water war, but there may be some interesting uses. At the top of the blaster is a toggle switch. When pointed towards the left, the blaster pumps up its Nerf dart firing chamber. If one continues to pump, an internal valve appears to switch and one begins to pressurize the water reservoir. Pulling the trigger with the top-switch to the left will fire the Nerf dart. However, turn the switch to the right and one will fire water out of a small nozzle built into the front of the blaster. The stream produced by the Nerf Switch Shots Super is roughly equivalent to a Super Soaker XP 20 or Super Soaker XP 40. However, its reservoir style is not as carefully designed, meaning some of its water cannot be used.

Despite its small size, it can give a decent output. While not too useful in a major conflict, one interesting use for this type of blaster should be noted. Firing the Nerf dart first at someone can get their attention, especially if their back is turned. Once they turn around, the ability to soak them becomes a very tempting and achieveable option!

Pros

Small, light, simple to use. Easy to carry and to fire. Can fire both Nerf darts as well as water. Fairly inexpensive as well!

Cons

Not a very powerful water stream. Stream size quite small and can be outclassed by virtually any XP, SC or CPS. Range somewhat shorter than the average Nerf Gun or Super Soaker blaster.
