The Water Warriors Ultimate Renegade is the mid-sized 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 Renegade looks similar in design to the original Water Warriors Renegade, albeit slightly smaller. Unlike the Ultimate Explorer and Ultimate Vanquisher, the Ultimate Renegade's pressure chamber is external to the reservoir. This chamber holds a little less water than the original, but still a decent amount of water.
The Ultimate Renegade features 3 differing-sized stream settings. These offer varying levels of output for soaking more or being more conservative when water is running low. Streams produced are smooth and solid. Interestingly, the Ultimate Water Warriors series appears to have ditched ball-valves and the trigger appears to be operating a pull-valve for opening and closing the nozzle.
The Water Warriors Ultimate Renegade features a forward mounted pump that is not tracked. The reason for this becomes apparent when blasters are linked. 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 or more linked blasters. Pumping, itself, is smooth as is expected and pump volumes are average for blasters of this size.
Like most of the other Ultimate Water Warriors blasters, the trigger and grip area on the Water Warriors Ultimate Renegade 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 a decent size, though having an attached base means that those with larger hands may feel slightly restricted.
The reservoir of the Water Warriors Ultimate Renegade occupies the back 2/3rds of this blaster's body. Making the most of available space, the Ultimate Renegade holds a decent amount of water for its size, though less than the original being an overall smaller frame.
Of course, one cannot talk about the Water Warriors Ultimate Renegade without noting its connection points. As on all the Ultimate Water Warriors water blasters released in 2011, the Ultimate Renegade 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.
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 Renegade is a solid blaster with decent power behind its nozzle. Its shot time is limited by its pressure chamber size, but streams perform well, nevertheless. Three nozzle settings offers fine-tuning of output between its smallest and largest settings on the field 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 having reduced power to what it could have been, the Water Warriors Ultimate Renegade remains a decent blaster, able to hold its ground against most other water blasters on the market. Just be wary of true CPS-class water blasters or older air-pressure water blasters with large, multiple pressure chambers.
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. Attaches to any Ultimate Water Warrior water blaster to create more powerful soaking devices.
Requires both hands to operate well. Opaque reservoir makes it hard to tell how much water remains. Pressure chamber capacity on the smaller side; shot times on the short side. No pressure chamber fill gauge since pressure chamber is internal. Pressure chamber should be primed for optimal use.

Pressurization System: Air Pressure
I'm not very impressed with the Ultimate Renegade's performance. I'm pretty sure the original Renegade performed better, and I would even prefer the Equalizer over this. But at least performance is okay. Its streams are decently sized, although it has quite a bit of dropoff, and if you try to pre-pressurize it, you can hardly pump any water into the pressure chamber before the pressure relief valve kicks in. It can connect to other Ultimate water guns, but I don't really think that matters much. Anyway, if you can find an original Renegade, I would recommend getting that instead.
