Default Xploders Blasters

Hey, so it turns out these things shoot Orbeez. Like small squishy pellets. That explode. But maybe someone could turn them into water guns?

It's much easier to convert that to a Nerf blaster than to build homemade internals that'll fit inside.

this is such a useless weapon...I cannot believe that I considered to buy one...fortunately I did not

Pull the spring back and release...no sense of trigger therefore your aim will be veeeery bad...haha

It might be okay for 1HK if the range is real. Of course it would be a lot better if it had a trigger. I might get one, but first I want to make sure it's any good. If the blasters are useless, we could still buy the ammo and make pnuematic water ball shooting homemade thingies. Or load them into a paintball gun...

Hahaha, this is a good idea^^ lol

Hei Martianshark, please let me know in case you go to get some of this ammo. I would like to have 2 x ammo package. Just if you get some for yourself. That would be great^^ They are unavailable here in Europe...Of course I would pay shiping and all that stuff and the two ammo boxes

Please let me know ! Homemade Sniper guns, we come...

I can't promise you that, but I might be able to. The packets are $5 each, and include 500 beads that grow into the balls of water. So you want 1000 wet ballz, which is about 7.468 euros plus shipping, whatever that is.

By the way, these seem to basically be the same thing as wedding water pearls. You might be able to get your hands on those.

Just realized something - If I take the wet ballz out of the box, I could mail the packets to you in an envelope. I'm still not quite sure if I can do that though.

That is fine too! But it may be better if you ship them inside the box. I do not know how much they can stand or how much energie is needed to destroy/smash them. Shiping is far and may damage them...I do not know too, but I would better pay more for shiping than get a wet letter...you understand

By the way, could you also get me one Xploderz, the one with the best range ? I do not know the modells. What is they best range ? 200 feet ? And how much would that cost ?

I'm probably not going to be able to do this at all. I don't even know how to extange money internationally. We should probably be doing this in PMs, by the way.

Just so you know, the biggest one with the best range is the XRanger, which supposively shoots 85 feet. Comes with a clip, stock, several hundred wet ballz, and an ammo depot for storing ammo.

I bought an XBlaster 200 today. I'll make a review soon, but in general, it's pretty bad. The spring is strong, but a spring-loaded door thing in the muzzle pops most of the ballz as they come out. I modified it and tore out the springs, but I'll have to wait for new wet ballz to grow before I can test it. It also can't shoot if it's pointed down, and the ballz pretty much don't get you wet at all - mostly because it's just a ball of gel; I thought it was a water-filled ball of gel. Plus, the XBlaster 200 isn't powerful enough to make the ballz "xplode" on impact.

EDIT: The ballz have grown, and the rusults since I modded it are pretty good. It shoots 1-3 ballz at a time, and it shoots sort of far, but definitely not 50 feet. The ballz still don't hit hard enough to break. Anyway, I would not recommend the XBlaster 200; it's no good for water fights of any kind.

i remember the water ball launchers, those were kinda cool, but still useless unless you are in a 1hk.

So far I haven't been hearing good things about this blaster but for some reason I still want one. Perhaps just to get the experience of trying it out, out of the way.

It's really bad. Not only does it not work unless you modify it, the balls don't get you wet at all. It's just gel.
