|Super Soaker 200|
2.05L of water
The Super Soaker 200 is a 1991 Classic Super Soaker Larami Super Soaker that holds 2.05L of water. It is no longer available as its home line has since been discontinued. It is classified as an air blaster with a separate pressure chamber.
Description[edit | edit source]
The Super Soaker 200 is a large rifle-sized soaker, with a red body, green reservoirs, yellow pressure chamber and a red pump handle. The pistol grip of the soaker is contoured to allow for better grip. The Super Soaker 200 was also the first Super Soaker to have a nozzle selector with three settings (labeled I, II, and III), though very inconspicuous, and featured a dual-reservoir system, a shoulder strap, and a separate pressure chamber for more consistent output.
Internals[edit | edit source]
The Super Soaker 200 has internals standard for air blasters for its time. It has a pinch-tube trigger, hoses, a separate firing chamber and an air pump among other things.
Blaster Co-relation[edit | edit source]
The Super Soaker 200 was the first of two blasters to feature a dual-reservoir system. The other was the XXP 175, its direct successor. Between those two generations, the XP 250 functioned as an indirect successor to both the SS 200 and Super Soaker 300, and an indirect predecessor to the XXP 175 and XXP 275.
It had no successors after the XXP 175 because large air-pressure blasters had been made thoroughly obsolete by the CPS series.
Faults[edit | edit source]
Like most other blasters, the Super Soaker 200 has faults. The main fault with the soaker is that it is rather weak compared to blasters of today, due to its small nozzle; the Super Soaker 200 has been outclassed by more powerful weapons of a similar size. However, it is still a decent choice for small to medium skirmishes.
How to Fire[edit | edit source]
Step 1 - Load the reservoirs with water.
Step 2 - Load the reservoirs into the soaker.
Step 3 - Pump the blaster 30-40 times; 40 times is recommended if the blaster has been sitting unused for a long time.
Step 4 - Pull the trigger to fire a stream of water.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Super Soaker 200 appears to use the body design of the Super Soaker 100, bar a different pistol grip.
