The Water Warriors Renegade is the mid-sized cannon-shaped Performance line of Water Warriors by Buzz Bee Toys Inc. released in 2009. While smaller than its larger brother, the Water Warriors Vindicator, the Water Warriors Renegade still packs a good punch.

The Blaster ::

waterwarriors_renegade_24_100Nozzles and Pressure Chamber::

The Water Warriors Renegade features a multiple nozzle selector with three different stream settings. The nozzles are powered by a separate single air pressure chamber. Streams produced from the various nozzle settings appear quite smooth and solid, but being air-pressure-based, one must be wary not to fire too long otherwise one will generate mist shots. The smaller settings offer varying levels of water conservation while the medium-sized nozzle seems to have the best performance and balance for this blaster. The largest nozzle setting has better output, but its performance feels a little shy of optimal. However, all nozzle settings perform much more effectively if one primes the Renegade beforehand, pre-pumping air into the pressure chamber first. Interestingly, the light green plastic used for both the pressure chamber and reservoir is semi-translucent, allowing one to see water levels within the chambers assuming there is enough light available. The pressure chamber's capacity is not particularly large, but it gets the job done.

waterwarriors_renegade_23_100Pump ::

The pump on the Renegade feels quite sturdy, particularly being tracked beneath the blaster's body; pumping is smooth and easy. The pump grip feels comfortable to hold and its shape should minimize slipping. However, due to the overall design of the blaster, the weight of the blaster ends up being more supported by one's pumping hand. This can make the blaster feel somewhat heavy after awhile, though being smaller and lighter than the Water Warriors Vindicator, it is not as much of a problem.

waterwarriors_renegade_25_100Triggers / Grip ::

The trigger on the Renegade feels solid and pulls easily, but securely. The trigger appears to respond quite readily to pulls and releases, making performing longer blasts or tap shots quite simple. The grip, itself, is nicely moulded and feels sturdy, making up the back-end of the blaster. However, while the grip area is large enough to accomodate most hands, since it is a closed area, those with particularly large hands may find it a little tight. Thankfully, the way the packaging is designed, one can easily try holding onto the blaster's grip and pull on the trigger to see whether it feels comfortable to hold before buying. That said, I believe most would find the grip quite solid and comfortable to hold.

waterwarriors_renegade_27_100The Reservoir ::

As noted above, the reservoir on the Renegade is made of a light green semi-translucent plastic. This allows one to quickly gauge how much water remains in it asusming there is enough light. The reservoir holds a quite respectable amount of water, able to fill the pressure chamber more than 5 times. As well, since the Renegade has a true separate pressure chamber, the reservoir can be filled, then the pressure chamber pumped, followed by topping off the reservoir to give the user one extra full shot on the field.

Overall ::

The Water Warriors Renegade with its no-nonsense styling is solid water blaster that offers a good mix of power as well as conservation to meet virtually any need on the water warfare battle field. It can be considered akin to a Super Soaker XP270 in set-up, but with more nozzle selections and better overall performance. The blaster feels quite sturdy as well, though requiring both hands to operate well. With a good-sized reservoir and separate pressure chamber, the Water Warriors Renegade can put up a good fight against most other water blasters out there. Just be wary of larger, true CPS-class weaponry.

Pros

Solid streams with good power and performance. Three nozzle selections offers great flexibility on the field. Blaster looks and feels solid. Can be pumped and pressurized easily. Translucent reservoir and pressure chamber make allow for easier determining of fill level.

Cons

Requires both hands to operate well. No shoulder strap. Two smaller nozzles not very different in size/output. Largest nozzle feels a little underwhelming.

Review:

The Water Warriors Renegade is an excellent, all around soaker that excels as a medium primary or semi-heavy backup for a CPS user. I use it as a medium primary. It features 3 nozzles. While the small and medium nozzles are very similar, they are seperate enough to feature different uses. The small is for saving water and extending shot time. The medium nozzle is perfect for typical engagments. The large, 4X nozzle, while fun to use, drains the pressure extremely quickly and should only be used if at close range or a direct hit is almost certain. The pressure chamber, while small, is good enough if your finger hasn't been epoxied to the trigger or something. The pump is comfortable to use, but you will be using it a lot due to small pump volume and small pressure chamber.

Overall, the Renegade is an excellent soaker that should be in anyone's armoury, as it can used for almost anything except for roles occupied by heavy CPS soakers. If you can, buy one. You won't regret it. NOTE: The Renegade is a whole better if you prime it. It pump it 30-35 times beofre filling. Also, I suck at measuring stats. iSoaker's are probably a heck a lot more accurate.

Review:

The Water Warriors: Renegade is a good buy when looking for a blaster with the right amount of power and range as well as capacity. And while I actually planned on getting the larger Vindicator, the Renegade suits me just fine. Although the blaster is a bit heavier than expected, it is a decent shot when held at an angle. The nozzles are pretty good with range and output but it should be known that the largest setting can't hold a perfect stream for very long and can only be used well up close. The amount of water that the tank can hold is decent enough but the pressure chamber is a bit small. All in all, the Water Warriors: Renegade is a well made blaster with power and range in "almost perfect" balance. And while it is slightly heavy, "being supported by one's pumping hand", it should work well for all people looking for a good water blaster.
