RecklessAssault2's Review

The XP250 is definitely among the more powerful non-CPS soakers. It has great distance and shot time. Water output isn't impressive compared to most of the CPS soakers, but it is still on par with just about any other XP soaker. The XP250 has four nozzles: 2X, 3X, fan spray, and shower-head. Only the 2X and 3X nozzles are practical for use in battle, but the other two are interesting purely as gimmicks. The XP250's strap makes it more portable, and is the next best thing to having a carrying handle. Speaking of handles, the XP250's main downfall is that the trigger mechanism is actuated by a large handle on the front of the barrel. This type of trigger is notoriously fragile, and while normal usage shoudn't cause it to break, dropping the soaker or being careless with it might. Also, it's impossible to pump and shoot at the same time. Overall, this is a great medium-size soaker, and though CPS soakers render it obsolete as a heavy cannon, it still has a place in any serious water warrior's arsenal.

Repair warning

The XP 250 is prone to broken firing handles. In case the firing handle breaks or ceases to function, consult our repair guide.
