Re: iSoak'D 065: Not Just What They Say - Part 5

I agree with Andrew in that the worst of the SS downturn is certainly later than 2002. 2007 was perhaps the last OK year, with the Arctic Blast as its standout, albeit not quite as good as the Flash Flood. The Secret Strike also wasn't that bad, not the most powerful thing around but I do like the e...

Re: Use of vehicles in water warfare

Well, in Assassins cycle-by shootings were allowed, and not uncommon. Projectile weapons (like nerf guns) were naturally banned from use on or by a cyclist. Commons sense was also advised; cycling with a CPS 2000 has been tried but is not recommended. Punts were also fair game, but canoes and rowing...

Re: Least Favorite Soaker?

The ones that are broken :-P

Besides that...I guess of the ones I have it would be the Lanard Waterbolt. Lame power, then the pump fell out. I prefer the awful-quality pound shop blaster to that, at least the cheap blaster can be excused its rubbishness.

Re: UK AP Sphinx?

I think they did. Not 100% sure, but I may have seen one in The Entertainer that lacked the vent hole on the PC that the Hydropower ones have.

Re: Super Soaker Electrostorm

If it's that small, it might be decent for Assassins. Only if it fires the moment you pull the trigger. In my (limited) experience motorised blasters suffer a slight lag, and a noisy lag at that thanks to the motor. That'll make the difference between a stealth kill and your target diving for cover...

Re: Nerf Super Soaker Microburst

Everything below it however, is almost useless even for assassins; you're better off with a water bottle with a pinhole cap; it'd be less obvious. 240s were all over the place at Cambridge Assassins, and I ended up killed by one, my killer whipped it straight out of their coat and I was dead before...

Re: CPS 1000 vs 1200 vs 2100

I can't favour either of the 1000 and 1200 over the other. The 2100 comes third IMHO, thanks to no strap, worse one-handed balance, and being a bit smaller capacity-wise.

Re: Nerf Super Soaker Microburst

You know, I'm actually hopeful for this. I like compact weapons, I guess it comes from having played Assassins. When a blaster's this small, I don't need OMG power. This looks about squirt gun size, but unless Hasbro completely screw it up (which is entirely possible), it should outrange and outsoak...

Re: Super Soaker Electrostorm

Looks like a clip would fit perfectly...but no, they have to abandon their own hat and go with a small fixed reservoir.

Also, based on the side and design, I'm seeing this replacing the Point Break/High Tide.

Re: Stock Blaster Predictions for 2012

Well, we know SS are sticking with the same line. Expect the Hydro Cannon and a number of the others to continue, however, there may be tweaked versions with the drum magazine. Expect the drum to be hard to get separately, based on precedent with the Overload's Aquapack. The Lightning Storm and HC w...

Re: Hasbro Reveals First Super Soaker of 2012!!!!

Oh yeah. I forgot about that.

However, that gimmicky blaster has a higher output stream* than any pressurised Super Soaker from the 2010 and 2011 lineups!

How the mighty do fall.

Re: Hasbro Reveals First Super Soaker of 2012!!!!

Sadly, I can believe they'd release something like this. (Maybe a bit less pointy at the front). With performance to match the High Tide.

You have to disable the PRV if, when you try and pump the gun, it activates before the pressure chamber is properly full.
