This is a great option for anyone who likes bringing the fight to the enemy. The XP 95 is the blitz in your playbook for medium air pressure blasters. It’s physically tough, it’s fast firing, it’s quick to power up, and it’s got a riot blast. There are few blasters that can keep up with the 95’s rate of fire, and those who can (eg XP 70), typically put out only half the amount of soakage that the 95 is capable of. Just try not to run out of water.
As you can imagine a gun with these type of attributes can also be terribly thirsty. For that reason, I do not recommend the XP 95 for extended games where it will be difficult to refill. I also do not recommend the XP 95 for elimination rounds versus opponents armed with CPS caliber weaponry. Veterans may be able to take on similarly armed opponents in score based games, but it is not recommended for less experienced players.
There are a few physical issues that are worth noting about the XP 95. The first is the reservoir, which twists on (and off) the blaster at a 180 degree angle. This can be annoying or even difficult if you’ve never used a gun with this type of reservoir. The other is the different pressure chamber sizes. The original (mk1) XP 95 features a 6.5 oz PC. Super Soaker doubled the size of the PC for the mk2.
