Im fowla and im new ere! :D I joined yesterday, and only have 2 guns, but I'll review them anyway. :P

P.S. ill edit this thread whenever I get a new gun

XP 310

this is a beast of a gun!, with the large nozzle being mostly useless for sniping, a screwdriver will help you turn it into a spray nozzle. The thin nozzle is great for sniping, and can keep a steady stream of water.

PRO's
Good for sniping
An ok weight for it's size
4 nozzles.
spray created when no nozzle is central to the shot :P

CON's
pump can break easily
pressure gauge can sometimes be faulty
screw on cap sometimes gets caught up
trigger stiff when new

TOTAL: 8.75/10
"A good all-rounder"

Triple shot
date bought: 15 march 05

not much testing done on this one, cos it's so new, but has incredible range on the normal setting, uses up a lot of pressure on the large stream setting, but your best bet is the spray setting: has great range, and spreads over 90 degrees!

PRO's
Range on normal setting could be classed as mid-distance sniper
VERY good spray spread and range
Hardly needs pumping

CON's
large setting uses up a lot of water pressure
no pressure gauge

TOTAL: 8.5/10
"Great sidearm!"

Please feel free to p.m. me if you would like to add anything about the guns reviewed. :D

see ya all!

^^ Obviously a Moderator or Admin who has authority over you. If they edited your post they most likely had a reason for doing it. Flaming about it will get you nowhere but booted off the board.

^ Very well put nibordude.

I will say for the last time: Please read our rules. The rules are here so that our member who have little or no idea on how to post on a forum learn. I can see that you have not read our rules, and rather than correct your problems one by one, I will (for now at least) tell you to read the rules before further action is taken.

Simply put, we're not taking any XPBackfire-esque from members any longer. I personally would have been a little more forgiving if you didn't immediately jump to flaming in a double post (double no-no), solely because someone edited your topic.

On topic: Nice short reviews! Good for some first reviews I suppose. The Pros and Cons are more informative than the actual review (try to stick a little more meat in your review).

sorry I'm stupid but somebody changed the title "Newbie intro and reviews" to "inexperienced usedie reviews" I've been modding super soakers for years, since I was 9 and now I'm XX now, so I, personally think I am a usedie

P.S. what is a usedie :huh:

I think I understand what happened. Doom has set it so that the not so nice alternative to newbie (if you know what I mean) gets automatically changed to "inexperienced user" or in this case it appears to be "used not "user". That's why the title of this thread changed.

I think it was suppose to be user. Doom doesn't like people calling themselves newbs or inexperienced users. Maybe a Moderator or Admin can change it for you.

Forceuser has it correct, "unexperienced usedie" was the result of my typo in the word filter (D is near R). He must have typed either n o o bie or n 0 0 bie. I have added those words to the word filter because I do not like to hear them on our forum.

^ I don't think his link worked in the first place. You might want to PM him because he is currently working on the COPPA form he should have mailed to me when he registered.
