Hasbro must have had efficiency down to a science with the release of this thing. The external shell is solid, the hose has a built in spring to prevent kinks, the gun has a metal belt clip, the backpack is super comfortable, and you can easily fill it with a hose while its still on your back – one of my favorite designs ever. What this translates to in terms of battle performance is one super easy to use gun with a good field life and a respectable rate of fire, output, and range. It doesn’t hurt that the gun uses CPS technology, so you can be sure there’s practically no drop off in power from the beginning of your shot to the end, and the stream is one of the most laminar ones I’ve seen from Super Soaker (think SC 600).

The APD makes a decent light primary for all sorts of games, but where I like it best is as a sidearm. Although it weigh just under 10 pounds fully loaded the backpack is so comfortable that you hardly notice it. I know a lot of you are against side arms, but this is a much better option than carrying around a bunch of waterbottles. You have the ability to refill your primary and the ability to fight off enemies if you have to, and you’d be surprised how much that metal belt clip comes in handy.

My one major issue with the Aquapack Devastator is really an issue with the entire 2005 line up. Hasbro used crappy parts when putting together its Max D style ball-valves. Much like with the Flash Flood, the spring connecting 2 moving parts on top of the ball valve will eventually break. It’s happened to all 3 that I’ve used and I’ve heard so many other people say it’s happened to theirs as well. Which is a real shame. It’s a true Achilles-heal, as the rest of the gun is pretty much indestructible.
