As much as I don't like Flash Floods, you should get one if the Arctic Shock is the other choice. The FF ~11x riot blast is pretty impressive for a post-2002 water gun, and it does have CPS tech, of which the Arctic Shock has neither. Plus, the Arctic Shock's gimmick can be simulated just by adding cold water to any gun.

Flash Flood's flood nozzle is way better the cold water and Flash Flood has higher water output on it normal nozzle than Arctic Shock.

You go and get a Flash Flood because it is one of the best guns Hasbro has made, and the "Flash Flood blast" looks cool. I only bought the Artic Shock to duel weild it with my Flash Flood. :flashflood:

Neither. Take the $15-20 you were going to spend and buy a Water Warriors Pirahna, which is far and away better than either or both combined.

Better yet, buy a Blazer from Amazon.com for $15 + shipping, and get the best soaker that you can buy without having to go to eBay. The Blazer totally dominates the newer soakers as far as I'm concerned. If you don't want to spend that much though, you should consider the Piranha from Amazon, which sells for even cheaper. :cool:

Hmmm... I wonder who wrote that?

You'll be happy with the Piranha. It's a mighty fine gun.

Just one more step in my plan to arm the world... with, er, Pirahnas. Yeah! Pirahnas. That's what I meant.

It's a great gun, really. Short, powerful, and cheap. Perfect combination if'n you ask me.

You could've just got a bunch of piranha's. I ordered. three piranhas for $15. Of course, My mom has amazon membership, so....

I've been trying for months to find the Blazer, but it seems to have vanished from existence in stores.

Terrifying, but oddly refreshing.

Flash Flood is pretty much the best non-rare gun you can get these days. If you want cold water, put ice cubes in it or leave it in the fridge, if you use the ice core on the AS, it can get warmed up if it's a bright day. (this is just speculation, I don't actually have one)

Yeah, I cannot see a pirahna nor a blazer anywhere, not ebay either. The best you can get so far in a store/online would be the flash flood and the defender. (don't waste money nor time with the arctic shock)

K-mart still carries Blazers. Mine still had one left when I checked, however I didn't go for it for a few reasons, mainly indecision on whether it is worth it.
