The Water Warriors Chameleon is a smaller, pistol-class soaker released by Buzz Bee Toys in 2006. The name, Chameleon, is likely derived from this blaster's different coloured swappable reservoirs. The Water Warriors Chameleon comes with a total of three interchangeable reservoirs, similar to older blasters like the Super Soaker SC Triple Charger and Super Soaker XP Triple Play, though the additional reservoirs do not hold pressure and simply serve as additional, swappable full tanks. Otherwise, the Chameleon is very similar to the older Water Warriors Hornet in size, styling, and performance.

The Blaster ::

iS Water Warriors chameleon_12_100Nozzle ::

The Chameleon features a single nozzle that is powered by its pressurized reservoir. Streams produced by the Chameleon have a good, solid feel to them. For a pistol-sized soaker, output is decent, though far from the stream strengths of some of the larger soakers available.

iS Water Warriors chameleon_11_100Pump ::

The pump on the Chameleon feels a little short compared to other soakers; this is similar if not identical to the feel of the Water Warrior Hornet's pump. The pump, itself, is semi-tracked, thus giving it a stronger feel. Performance-wise, the pump does an adequate job at pressurizing the reservoir fairly quickly. Its limited length, though, does mean one does need to pump a few more times to build up adequate reservoir pressure.

iS Water Warriors chameleon_13_100Trigger / Grip ::

The trigger / grip region on the Chameleon has a simple, no-nonsense design to it. The grip, itself, seems a little short, particularly for those with larger hands. However, as the grip area is open, one's hands never feel restricted due to limited space. The trigger pulls smoothly, though there sometimes feels like there is a slight lag between pulling the trigger and the appearance of the water stream. This is likely due to the pressurized reservoir system used.

iS Water Warriors chameleon_14_100The Reservoir ::

The Chameleon possesses a top-mounted, opaque, screw-on reservoir. This is a similar design to soakersof yesteryear (i.e. the Super Soaker SS 50). The intake tube is short, but does a decent job at making use of most of the water in the reservoir. As noted before, the Chameleon comes with three swappable reservoirs, coloured yellow, green, and orange. For reservoirs that are not in use, they are kept closed by screwing them into a rocket-base-shaped belt clip. Thanks to these extra tanks, one can last up to three times as long on the battlefield. However, due to the nature of attaching and detaching reservoirs, swapping tanks is not a quick procedure, thus one should seek some safety before attempting to swap otherwise one will be defenseless for some time.

Overall ::

As a whole, the Water Warriors Chameleon is a decent, light soaker. Its performance is similar to that of the Water Warriors Hornet while offering the additional capacity thanks to its swappable extra tanks. However, swapping is not a quick process, thus its usefulness is more limited. Recommended as a back-up for most water fights or as a primary in small skirmishes or covert operations, the Chameleon will serve one well; just be wary of larger soakers, of course.

Pros

Small, light, easy to pump and shoot. Decent stream for a pistol-sized soaker. Come with three reservoirs for expanded total capacity.

Cons

Limited water per tank. Swapping reservoirs not that fast due to the need to screw on and off the tanks. Short grip region. No holster or strap to facilitate carrying when not in use.
