The SC Power Pak is quite possibly one of the best Super Soaker’s made to date, released in 1999; it kicked off the Super Charger line well, even though it didn’t last long.  With a large supercharged backpack and absolutely gas guzzling soakage, the Power Pak made clear to its rivals that it’s gonna embarrass every target it notices.

This is one of the only blasters made where you don’t have to pump, which makes the design simpler.  Whenever an opponent pumps then set it on whatever nozzle you like depending on the mood you are in and give them hell until you run out.  The four nozzle settings on the blaster which actually looks a lot like a garden attachment are 3x which fires for nearly a minute, the near useless Sweep Stream which is just a fan nozzle, 10x for hard hitting big soakage and finally the truly terrifying Saturator, basically a huge shower that will literally make everyone believe that it has just been raining.  The blaster has another nozzle sticking out the middle for filling by the Quick Fill Device (QFD) attached to a garden hose, you need it as otherwise you can’t use it.  The colours are also nice; you can have the US version colours which are more sort of natural looking of grey with some green and orange.  Or you can have the European version more camp/funky colours of purple with some yellow and turquoise.  The backpack also has a pressure gauge in the form of three cylindrical CPS chambers, a bit pointless though since you can’t see them when filling, that’s like putting lights on your clothing but in your pants so nobody can see them when in use.  The whole blaster with the weight being on your back doesn’t feel too heavy either which means your opponents will shit themselves even more, combine that with around ten second shot durations on the 10x and Saturator nozzles, and also nearly a minute on 3x then you’re gonna get drenched, and nobody with wings is gonna come and save you.

The Power Pak however is slightly let down its durability and reliability if you aren’t careful.  Some have just been known to fall apart, nozzle selector cracks have proved pretty bad after a while and just in general, if you don’t look after its fragility shows, so whatever you do take care of it.  All this devastation does come at a bit of price sadly.  Also, if you don’t have a QFD then this blaster is useless in battle as there is no other way to fill it.  The backpack is also a bit uncomfortable given it is hard plastic, even though it isn’t really bad like whiplash or something, it wouldn’t hurt to put it in something soft.

Even with the problems, the SC Power Pak is a truly fantastic blaster, and is a fantastic example of what Super Soaker is all about, blasters that just cause mayhem and basically instantly soak, and soak convincingly and stylistically, hence ‘Super Soaker.’  Even better if you can’t be bothered to pump either, right up you’re street.  They don’t go for a massive amount compared to other large blasters too which is good.  Just beware of durability issues, don’t be a complete dumbass and chuck it around then it’ll be fine, in which you’ll be terrifying in your opponents eyes with it.

Using the SC Power Pak

Go for anything you see, dodge shots and then when pumping drown them.  Still watch out for other non pump blasters like the Big Trouble and Speed Loaders though.

Against the SC Power Pak

Everyone approach with caution, unless you have a Big Trouble, a large CPS or the larger Speed Loaders which even then is hard, then just well, do the best you can to soak the user at every opportunity, mainly when it retreats to refill is best.  Or you could just cheat and steal the user’s Quick Fill Device, ‘who’s ha ha’ing now eh?’
