Review

CPS technology is a huge advantage for a gun this size.  It’s not much larger than an Arctic Shock, but performs so much better.  Although not as good as a CPS 1000/1200/2100 for a standard weapon, the Arctic Blast is definitely serviceable for both casual soakfests and serious battles.  In non elimination type games, where maximum soakage is your goal, I definitely recommend using your 15 mm “flood” nozzle on raids.  The smaller nozzle is good for standard fighting.  The gun that this is most similar to is the CPS Flash Flood.  Both guns have similar designs, with CPS pressure chambers, Max D ball valves, a stream nozzle, and a flood nozzle.  With that being said, though similarly designed, the Flash Flood outperforms the Arctic Blast, but is also much more likely to break – reminiscent of how the Max D 6000 (performance) is to the XP 310 (durability).

The external shell is very strong.  As of 2012, 5 years after I originally aquired my 2 Arctic Blasts, they are still working fine.  I am still somewhat cautious about the durability of both Max D ball valves, but they have yet to break on me.  SEAL did a de-Max D mod on his Arctic Blast just in case.    There’s a lot of modifications that you can do with this gun.  SSC’s Doomsoaker claims his Arctic Blast can reach the low to mid 40s after performing a PC expansion and nozzle mod on the 15 mm flood nozzle.
