The XP Triple Play (XPTP) has three reservoirs. You can interchange each reservoir after the reservoir is out of water… that happens a lot on this blaster. A belt is included in the blaster set for you to store your water tanks on. But, before you run out and buy this, continue reading the rest of the review. The blaster and the tanks can be filled up via a QFD or a tap hose.
The XPTP has about a 2X nozzle. The blaster has excellent range and shoots about as far as a 2001 Monster. However, the blaster only has a firing time of three seconds, and the first second is very misty. So, imagine yourself charging up the battlefield and your main weapons runs dry so you grin and pull out your XPTP and fire and all that comes out is mist and finally when your mist ends it’s to late because you have already been eliminated. Now comes the sad part, the reservoir only holds one of these shots. That’s right folks, one. Watch out for when you replace the tank too, it gets kind of tricky and lots of water dribbles out. Also, if you plan on actually having a water fight (instead of a water skirmish), you pretty much can’t unless you plan on not running. By running, the tanks fall off. You’re better off filling up the tanks & blaster by hand then with the QFD because it only fills the tanks up half way. The colors are pretty good, except for the orange and green. The handle is far too small. My hands are pretty small, and I always find my pinky finger falling off the handle whenever I use it. The pump handle’s too small as well; only about half of my hand can fit on it. This blaster is outclassed by everything except maybe a XP 220.
This blaster deserves a 72% out of 100%.
Hmmm.... The XP Triple Play? Have a tactical advantage? Yeah right! It's just a novelty. Don't waist your money in less you're Bill Gates or some other rich person. Like I said, this blaster deserves a 72%, about a "F". Sorry Larami & Hasbro, but this is one of the worst Super Soaker's I've ever used in my entire life!
This blaster is one of the worst. The nozzle is tiny compared to most other XP nozzles. The power and shot time is horrible, and the water capacity is even worse. The only thing good about this gun is the three water tanks that come with it. The cap (or the orange part) of the water tank can be unscrewed like the XP triple play (a similar blaster to this one) so one could dump the contents down an enemy's back. This gun is also QFD and regular compatible for filling. Overall, I don't recommend anyone buying this blaster. Fighting against it-Almost any high-class XP, Max-D, or any CPS can outclass this gun. Approach the poor user and soak him!
