The Water Warriors Steady Blast is a new continuous-stream-capable pump-action water blaster from Buzz Bee Toys Inc. for 2015 featuring two nozzle settings. It also is the largest of the new pump-action 2015 Water Warriors brand water blaster.

The Blaster ::

water_warriors_steady_blast_16_175Nozzles ::

Like the Water Warriors Drench Master, the Water Warriors Steady Blast has two nozzle settings to choose from: a standard stream setting and a burst-style nozzle that blasts out four (4) roughly parallel streams. The stream setting offers standard water blasting performance while the burst setting does increase area coverage. Thanks to the spring-based pressure capacitor, like the original Water Warriors Steady Stream (2007), the Water Warriors Steady Blast can create a continuous stream if pumped quickly enough. Granted, due to the need to continually pump to create a solid stream, one's ability to aim accurately is reduced.

water_warriors_steady_blast_19_175Pump ::

The Water Warriors Steady Blast features a forward-mounted semi-tracked pump. Pumping is smooth, though amount of water pushed per pump cycle is surprisingly on the slightly lower side, even slightly lower than the original Water Warriors Steady Stream (2007). Nevertheless, this pump does permit one to create smooth stream so long as the pump is pulled quickly enough.

water_warriors_steady_blast_20_175Grip ::

The trigger and grip area on the Water Warriors Steady Blast, like the remainder of the blaster, is minimally sculpted, if not downright smooth. This may make this water blaster slightly more slippery to hold if wet. The open based grip accomodates hands of any size. The inclusion of the false trigger has always been a point of debate, but apart from being purely ornamental, does not hinder this water blaster's function.

water_warriors_steady_blast_21_175The Reservoir ::

The reservoir for the Water Warriors Steady Blast makes up the majority of this water blaster and holds a very good amount of water for its size. The reservoir cap, while tethered, does feel a little less substantial than reservoir caps on older models. Moreover, its single hole air inlet may dribble slightly when the water blaster is pointed upwards. While a single pump creates a stream that lasts just under one (1) second, thanks to its large reservoir and pressure capacitor, the Water Warriors Steady Blast could theoretically blast continuously for over 2 minutes!

Overall ::

In the end, the Water Warriors Steady Blast is the larger brother to the Water Warriors Steady Stream (2007), With two nozzle settings and a significantly larger reservoir, the Water Warriors Steady Blast offers the ease of use of a pump-action water blaster combined with the ability to create continuous streams akin to a pressurized water blaster. While one's accuracy is reduced when pumping and blasting, given the closer-range combat between most water blasters, this is often not problematic. Able to keep up with pump-action and light-weight pressurized water blasters, the Water Warriors Steady Blast is still out-performed by larger output pressurized water blasters.

Pros

Decent build; excellent capacity; two nozzle settings to choose from; simple operation; continuous streams possible (if one pumps quickly enough).

Cons

Pump-action to create its continuous streams reduces aiming accuracy; reservoir cap may dribble if water blaster pointed at more extreme angles.
