Re: Water Warriors Garganuta X

For real? Why in the world does BBT push this technology so much? This has to be like the twentieth variation of the Steady Stream. I guess I should have known that they wouldn't do anything as adventurous as a spring PC blaster, but considering how good the original Gargantua was, this comes as kin...

Re: Storms Duelfest’s

Wow, you got a lot of rare weapons. I had a T-Shock 8000 back in 2002. It was like a mini Splashzooka, but we were dumb kids and couldn't figure out how to fill it. Seems to be a pretty good blaster though if it could beat down the C2 like that. Or maybe that just goes to show how bad the C2 is, hah...

Water Warriors Garganuta X

This seems to have flown under everyone's radar. It's a Garganuta with a spring PC! Seems like an odd move on BBT's part. I wonder if this would be better or worse than the CPS chamber of the original. Either way it's kinda cool to see. They haven't done anything like this in some time.

Re: Duelfest 2018

You got a Pulse Master? That's awesome, I've long been curious about it since nobody has ever brought one to a war before, and it seems to have pretty good stats. That's actually quite impressive that it was able to hang with a 1700. You should definitely run it against the 1000 and the Gorgon if yo...

Re: Watergun with an integrated water balloon launcher

Wow, great work. I remember people would always talk of building water guns with built in WBLs, but as far as I know you're the only one to actually do it. How does it perform? I know one of the concerns with having an integrated WBL is that it might not shoot balloons far enough to be worth it, bec...

Re: Just when I thought I'd seen it all. Toilet Paper Blasters.

The first thing I thought of was that prank where you take a toilet paper roll and attach it to a blow dryer, hahaha. But this is more like a spitball launcher. I wonder if these will sell well or not. It certainly seems like something that kids would like, if they're anything like I was when I was ...

Hey, welcome back cantab! It's been a long time. I remember you giving me advice on building my first homemade like ten years ago. As far as gimmicks go, I agree that the FF/AB were fun as hell. They could be pretty decent in close-quarters too. I always thought the "shower" nozzle setting on the Mo...

This is actually a very neat question. What are we trying to do? Well that depends. Everyone joins the community for a different reason.

Re: 15 Years Later? WW Lightning Mod

Kind of a late reply, but welcome back! For a lot of us, though we may go through periods of dormancy, this hobby tends to stick with us.

That's some pretty crazy modding too. I used to do stuff like that on occasion. Let us know how it works out. I'm curious about the handling.

Re: 2020 Nerf Super Soakers - Return to Form?

Hmm, well to me it looks more like the SS 20, at least the MK2. But they're both pretty similar. I wonder which would perform better. Pressurized guns don't seem to work very well on a small scale.

Re: 2020 Nerf Super Soakers - Return to Form?

A picture of the "XP 20" has been revealed. Obviously having more in common with the SS 20 rather than the original XP 20, this one has been more "Hasbro-ified," and doesn't look to be pressurized. Definitely not as interesting as the bigger ones, but still worth posting about. I still think this y...

Most Powerful Water Stream?

A long time ago I posted an image of an open dam drain valve, which is essentially a pressurized water blaster of enormous proportions. But now there's a video on Youtube! It's not the same dam; this one only has one outlet instead of two or three. But it's still cool to watch: https://www.youtube.c...

Re: Super Soaker XP100 Review

That's a really good review. Did you measure any stats? I'm interested to see how it compares to the original SS 100. According to old reviews, the O.G. shot around 36-37 feet (or ~11 meters if you prefer) with 1-2X output. By the sounds of it this new one might not quite match it, although it certa...

After seeing the thread about the new BBT/Walmart guns, I decided to do some snooping to see if Hasbro revealed anything yet. Nothing on their website, but it seems isoaker is still alive and well, and has posted this on his website. Talk about a throwback! First time in like a decade that I've gott...

Re: 2020 Walmart Adventure Force Water Strike Soakers

BBT really likes their Steady Stream technology, don't they?

The Drench Force and its derivatives do still interest me. Piston guns suck, but you can't really argue with 50 feet. I wonder how one would fare in combat against CPS.
