water_warriors_argon2016_box01_175The Water Warriors Argon (2016) is a re-release of the original Water Warriors Pre-Charger Argon (2005) water blaster by Alex Brands Buzz Bee Toys Holdings for 2016. Based on test results from reviewing the Water Warriors Xenon (2016), the Argon (2016) is presumed to behave on-par with the original Argon (2005).

water_warriors_argon2016_box06_175Dimensions and build of the Argon (2016) are nearly identical to the Argon (2005). The only difference, like the Water Warriors Xenon (2016), is that the Pre-Charger button is replaced by a lever on the Argon (2016). The lever must be in its upward position in order to pressurize the back-side of the pressure chamber; the lever must be in its downward position to draw water from its reservoir and pump it into the forward side of the pressure chamber.

Unfortunately, since the build is the same, that means the Argon (2016) then also suffers from cramped hand space for its trigger/grip region as the original. The Argon (2016) also still features a physical pressure gauge, though most users tend to simply pump until pumping gets difficult and/or they hear the pressure-relief valve actuating.

Good for small-to-medium skirmishes and with better performance than similarly-sized standard air pressure water blasters, the Water Warriors Argon (2016) should make for a good addition to most armouries. Of course, the Argon remains outclassed by larger air and elastic pressure water blasters, particularly those using full elastic bladder systems.

Pros

Pre-charge system separates the pressurized air from water, reducing misting and improving general stream performance. Large reservoir and pump volume for a blaster this size. No batteries required for any part of the soaker.

Cons

Small overall firing chamber volume. Single nozzle setting. Potentially cramped trigger/grip region for those with larger hands
