The Water Warriors Ultimate Bandit is the smallest water blaster released by Buzz Bee Toys Inc. in 2011 for their Ultimate Water Warriors System. The most notable feature of the entire Ultimate Water Warriors line is the ability for all the water blasters to connect to one another either on the top of the bottom. While connecting the blasters does not link triggers, pressure chambers, or reservoirs, linking does allow one to carry around multiple blasters more easily and offers interesting flexibility in blasting choices when using blasters in combination.
The Blaster ::
The Water Warriors Ultimate Bandit is slightly larger than the Water Warriors Deluge, but performs significantly better. The nozzle produces a smooth and relatively thick stream for this blaster's size. Powered by its pressurized reservoir, shot time is decent as well. However, as with most other air-pressure-based systems, if water levels are low, there is also a chance of creating a mist-shot.
The Water Warriors Ultimate Bandit features a forward mounted pump that is not tracked. The pump grip can be rotated when multiple blasters are attached with the extended forward tab making it easier to pump even when holding a stack of 2 to 3 linked blasters. Pumping, itself, is smooth and it does not take too many pumps to adequately pressurize the reservoir for good stream performance.
The trigger and grip area on the Water Warriors Ultimate Bandit, like most of the other Ultimate Water Warriors blasters, is positioned at the back of the blaster. This gives the blaster a nice, linear shape, and allow triggers of all blasters to be easily accessed when multiple blasters are attached together. The grip is smaller in size being a smaller overall blaster so those with larger hands may be restricted in space.
The reservoir of the Water Warriors Ultimate Bandit occupies the bulk of this blaster's body, albeit a small overall shell. Making the most of available space, the Ultimate Bandit holds a decent amount of water for its size. Moreover, so long as the reservoir was not overfilled (not more than 3/4 full), the Ultimate Bandit can fully empty its reservoir after its initial complete pressurization. As an added bonus, the refill cap is located on the left side of the blaster, meaning that the Ultimate Bandit can be refilled even while still attached to other Water Warriors Ultimate blasters.
Of course, one cannot talk about the Water Warriors Ultimate Bandit without noting its connection points. As on all the Ultimate Water Warriors water blasters released in 2011, the Ultimate Bandit has connection points on its top and bottom. All Ultimate Water Warriors water blasters, unlike the Ultimate Air Blasters line, use identical connection mechanisms meaning that any blaster can connect to any other blaster on its top or bottom. The top side of the blasters feature the "hook" and indentation while the bottom side of the blasters feature the attachment mechanisms and release button. Attaching blasters together is simply a matter of lining up the back point, angling the rear point into the lower blaster's upper indentation, and the clipping the lower blaster's hook into the upper blaster's attachment mechanism. Granted, unlike the other blasters in the Water Warriors Ultimate line, the Ultimate Bandit's lower release mechanism is located on the left side of the blaster and is a slider as opposed to a button. As well, because of the Ultimate Bandit's smaller frame, the top and bottom connection points are not directly vertical to one another, shifting the lower blaster slightly to the left of center when attached.
Attaching and detaching blasters is fairly easy one you try it a couple of times. Those with smaller hands may have some difficulty though, particularly if dealing with fully loaded, heavier blasters. Though not necessary, having the option to link blasters is a nice-to-have feature. The main problem apart from weight gain is that some blasters must be unlinked in order to be refilled.
As a whole, the Water Warriors Ultimate Bandit is a solid back-up blaster with respectable power behind its nozzle. Its single nozzle offers good power for this pistol-class blaster while its ability to connect to itself and other blasters in the Ultimate Water Warriors line offers even more flexibility and possiblities to create a more potent soaking device. Though likely best used for backup, the Water Warriors Ultimate Bandit remains a good blaster, able to hold its ground any blaster of similar size and even some larger ones. Just be wary of most larger water blasters.
Solid streams with good power and performance. Blaster looks and feels fairly solid. Can be pumped and pressurized easily. Attaches to any Ultimate Water Warrior water blaster to create more powerful soaking devices.
Opaque reservoir makes it hard to tell how much water remains. No shoulder strap/hoslter. Only one nozzle setting. Being a pressurized reservoir system, blaster cannot be pressurized, then topped off.

This is a nice little blaster. It's easy to use, very powerful for its size, and all the parts work smoothly. It makes a great little backup blaster. However, its reservoir is a little small. Combined with how powerful it is, this makes it run out pretty fast. The Bandit is comparable to a Super Soaker Max-D 2000 or 3000, although I think it may be a little more powerful, and have a little less capacity. And of course, it connects to other Ultimate guns.
