Default Oozinator problem, please help!

I got an Oozinator, my first SS in 15 years and it leaks all over the place... It seems like the air out of the cap too. Is this normal for all Super Soakers or does this model just suck?

Also should I get the Arctic Shock because it's the last of the CPS soakers?

Your oozinator is probably a bad model, but anyhow, screw the cap on as far as it will go. This will reduce the amount of leakage of air. Open up your gun and take a look at the internals. Check them for cracks and any other way that they could possibly leak. If you want, you can just epoxy over the whole thing, (I think), which should increase the strength of the internals

Hate to burst your bubble, but the Arctic Shock is not a CPS soaker. However, the Arctic Blast is. If you want CPS, you should buy either
a) Flash Flood
b) Hydroblitz
c) Arctic Blast
These are other recommendations, but they behave similar to CPS
d) Blazer
e) Orca
f) Lightning
g) Tigershark
h)Argon
i) Xenon
j) Krypton
Or, search eBay for old CPS/Monster series guns.

I'd say, don't get any hasbro gun (supersoakers released 2003 or newer) except for the flash flood. The rest is just crap or at least sounds like crap. Go for BBT guns and old soakers from the CPS line.

Yeah my bad I meant the Arctic Blast

I was thinking either that or the Secret Strike (the 2007 "Secret" whatever)

I'm not going to mess with the oozinator, I shouldn't have to fix something so extensively ya know? I'll just return it and hope other SS's don't leak.

Like I just said, don't get any Hasbro Soakers. (except for the Flash Flood) Get the guns we listed, most of the rest is as crappy as the oozinator. (that you can get in stores at least) Arctic Blast? Just get a Flash Flood or one of the BBT Hydro Power guns.

If you're looking for thin-stream pistols and small guns, look for the Max-D line.

Buzz Bee Toys is the way to go. KMart or KBToys should have good guns like the Orca and Tiger Shark.

But back on topic...

Is water dripping out of the gun's seams? If so, try unscrewing the screws and opening the gun to see if there's a leak.

Could you please clarify this? Thanks.

That is a problem. I presume the cap was screwed on properly - I often don't put the cap on level and I can't create a good seal. That usually happens when I'm refilling too quickly.

Check to make sure nothing is wrong with the screw threads. Teflon tape on the threads might also help with the seal.

Arctic Blast = Freezing Shotgun
Secret Strike = Secret Strike

I saw the Secret Strike when I went to the mall yesterday.

Well, looking at only Super Soakers, those newer ones are the only ones I see on shelves, except maybe Flash Flood

Do you not see any BBT guns around your area or what? Most places carry just as much BBT guns as Hasbro guns. (on average at least, some have more soakers, some have more WW's) Otherwise, there is no reason to be "looking at only super soakers".
