iS SuperSoaker xp270_02tbThe Super Soaker XP 270 makes a very good light assault rifle. It holds more water than its cousin, the Super Soaker XP 70, and its pressure chamber holds a good amount of pressurized water. Its water reservoir is transparent so that water reserves can be easily monitored. The reservoir comes with a tethered cap to help prevent the cap's loss. Pumping is quick and easy, giving this XP-class weapon a good punch. However, the pump handle feels a little flimsy so some care should be taken while pumping. Its size and balance are nice, allowing one to hold one's ground even against the lower CPS-class weapons.

Decent as a primary weapon, the Super Soaker XP 270 is perfect for small to medium skirmishes and can hold awhile in large ones. Just beware of any CPS-class weaponry as well as larger XPs and XXPs.

Pros

Nice size, light, easy to carry. Despite its size, it packs respectable 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. The shape of the reservoir allows virtually all water to be used.

Cons

This is a rather small weapon compared to the others out there. The XP-class nozzles are outclassed by all of the CPS-line of weapons.

Review:

The XP 270 is, in my humble opinion, one of the best all-around lightweight blasters there is. It has a surprisingly large output, solid capacity, and excellent stealth compared to its predecessor, the noisy-pumping XP 70. The blaster has a very good feel to it, with a comfortable pump handle and trigger area. Its range is a bit disappointing, though. With a 35 foot range, the XP 270 leaves much to be desired. Despite this, it is still a great blaster. If you see one in a store, buy it.

Usage: Assault Rifle (don’t use it for anything else, there’s no use)

Positions that should use the XP 270: Grunts, Forwards, Captains (for backup)

Final Word

The XP 270 is worth the 80/100 that iSoaker gave it. It is an excellent assault rifle that won’t waste water. It holds its own against all other XPs, but be wary of large CPS weaponry.

Review:

My personal favorite weapon the XP270 is exceptionally easy to carry and transport because of its compact design. It can hold its ground up to a CPS 1500. The stock soaker holds till the CPS 1200s come out then its outpowered. I'd totally recommend an XP270 as a recon/scounting or even a grunts primary.

Scoring in my eyes:

Pros:
Compact
Strong
Comfortable pump grip
good reservoir volume

Cons:
I my opinon none but there is some. It is sometimes flimsy. It has an extremely easily breakable reservoir.

Overall I'd give the XP270: 85/100

The XP270 most people know of is yellow and green, but does not have the best perfomance. However, if you go to Toys R Us, they now have a twin pack of a black and blue one and gray and blue on one.
The black one performs better than the regular one (i.e. easier to pump, better shot time, does not become locked as easily, and has a waaaaaay better color scheme). If you see one of these packs, they're worth the $15 USD it costs. Overall, I give the new XP270 a nine out of ten for range, mobility, and easiness of pumping. I highly recommend this blaster to scouts.

Review By Luke C | Posted: 20010524

This was my first ever Super Soaker and I bought my first one in the early months of the year 2001. Of course, I had always wanted a water blaster. But I never seemed to get round to getting one, so in the end, my mom took me into a store and agreed to buy something for me & my little brother, no more than £10 (around $13.5). So I choose any-old water blaster: the XP270. I tested it out, "Way cool!" I said as I pulled the trigger back for the very first time (remember I didn't know anything about water wars then). I wanted to have a water fight so I got most of my friends into water wars which then made my water team, Team Aqua.

Then I wanted to find tips & tactics and also detailed reviews on soakers. I found www.supersoaker.com - the official site first, but it didn't really say much about the water weapons, so I searched for others. After going through some, I was about to give up searching, but then I saw the iSoaker site on the search engine. Clicked on it, and, hey, my whole idea of water wars had changed.

Unfortunately, my XP270 broke as my little brother was showing off with it. I tried fixing it, but it was no good. I bought a few more water blasters after that.
Then, about a year later (yesterday, 5/16/02, 5th may 2002) I bought another XP270 and I nearly forgot how cool it was!
Of course, it's a bit to small for a main weapon, but I thought it would be a great back-up weapon.
Yesterday, I tested it out with my brother who is also going to get the same one for a main one (he's only 7).

This blaster is so cool. It's light as anything, holds a reasonable amount of water, and has a nozzle of just the right size! It uses water just as rapidly as the CPS1000; that's the only downfall and it's such a nice size. Range is decent, but I don't think range is important for water blasters, only if you are a sniper.
I recommended it to my scout, (I'm the leader of Team Aqua, my name is 'teamaqua1' on Aquatica) but no, he wants to stick with his Storm 600. That thing is really tiny!

Pros - Lovely soaker, looks so cool, good range for it's size, light even when completely filled.
Cons - Low water supply, even with 25 percent more water than the XP70! To small for medium - large assaults, will be out-gunned easily.
Power - 4.5
Weight - 3
Capacity - 3
Overall - 4

Review By Peter K | Posted: 20010524

This is one of my favorite line of blasters. I loved the XPs as I was growing up (ever since...umm...I was 7 years old) and this is just better than my other XPs. The XP270 is an awesome assault blaster which can be used in just about any scrimage...but watch out for CPSs with 10x nozzles... It has an ok nozzle. I noticed that the nozzle is a big larger than the XP240s.
The pump handle is comfortable, but it could break (COULD). The XP270 only needs bout 6-8 pumps to be fully loaded, then it looks like you could just about break the handle trying to pump some more (a pressure gauge would've been welcome). I customized mine by using a Sharpie permanent marker fine point marks on the spots that look like they need color.
The XP270 has really good range for an assault rifle: about 8 meters at 45 degrees. I recommend that smaller kids (like me) who don't want a heavy water blaster, should buy this decent, light-weight, water blaster.

Review By ShadowstrikePrime | Posted: 20010314

The XP-270 is an excellent weapon. It is useful as a sidearm in large battles and great as a main weapon in smaller ones. If you're fighting a high-end CPS-class or a (Primus, forbid) Monster with this blaster, to put it simply, you're in deep trouble. This weapon holds 25% more water than its predacessor, the XP 70. This blaster is versatile and it's gotten me out of more than a few tight situations. Its range is decent for its size. Against low- end CPS weapons (ie: CPS1000 or CPS1500), it can hold it's own for a very short time if you can manuver quickly enough. I highly recommend this weapon as a heavy Side-arm.
