The Nerf Super Soaker Micro Burst seems to be the smallest of the new models released for 2012 by Hasbro Inc. Smaller than the Nerf Super Soaker Electrostorm, it, too, lacks a removable water magazine and has no tactical rail.

The Blaster ::

Nozzle ::

super_soaker_microburst_16_100The Nerf Super Soaker Micro Burst features a small nozzle opening, though it is actually slightly larger than the Nerf Super Soaker Electrostorm nozzle. Because this blaster is pump-action, the force of the stream produced by the nozzle is dependant on the user and, during testing, stream produced were brief, but decent.

Pump ::

super_soaker_microburst_15_100As noted above, the Nerf Super Soaker Micro Burst is a pump-action water blaster. As such, every pull of the pump generates a stream, but it is also not possible to produce a constant stream. The pump on the Nerf Super Soaker Micro Burst is actually respectively large for a blaster of this size. There seems to be a touch of turbulence in some inner tubing when drawing water from the reservoir, but otherwise, pumping is smooth and easy. Thanks to good ergonomics and a solid build, a good amount of force can be pushed into each shot.

Grip ::

super_soaker_microburst_03_100The Nerf Super Soaker Micro Burst's trigger-less grip area is well moulded and very comfortable to hold. As with the Nerf Super Soaker Electrostorm, Hasbro Inc. continues to make quality grips for the entire 2012 Nerf Super Soaker line. There even appears to be a place where a strap could be tethered through at the back of the blaster, though the blaster does not come with a strap.

The Reservoir ::

super_soaker_microburst_17_100The reservoir on the Nerf Super Soaker Micro Burst is built into the handle with a bottom-mounted semi-rectangular screw-cap at its base. Due to the overall small profile of this blaster, the amount of water held in its limited reservoir is quite low, though almost being on par with the capacity of the Nerf Super Soaker Electrostorm. One problem of the reservoir, though, is that the intake tube does not reach all the way to the opening, meaning that roughly one pump volume's worth of water is unusable. Also, since the opening of the reservoir faces downwards, one needs to be sure to fasten the cap securely to prevent it from leaking.

Overall ::

Altogether, the Nerf Super Soaker Micro Burst, like the Nerf Super Soaker Electrostorm, is a well-built, nicely-styled water blaster, but lacking capacity. It fairs a little better than its motorized brethren in that it can produce a decent stream, albeit for a short duration due to the limited volume of its pump. Nevertheless, its usefulness in the water warfare field is severely hampered by its lower range and output. Perhaps useful in very small battles, indoor fights, or for assassin-type games where a pocket-sized water blaster can come in handy during covert soaks, the Nerf Super Soaker Micro Burst has very limited utility in the true water warfare field. Be wary if facing off against any true pressurized water blaster or any piston blaster of similar size or larger.

Pros

Nice styling, sturdy build, and respectable pump.

Cons

Not capable of producing a constant stream.. Reservoir capacity low.
