The Nerf Super Soaker Freezefire is a nicely styled and comfortable-to-hold pump-action water blaster that really doesn’t pack much of a surprise. It is functional and the stream-creation is fairly smooth, however the lag experienced while attempting to rapidly pump puts a definitive damper on how well the Freezefire could preform in play.
Features of this blaster include a relatively standard sized nozzle for water guns this size and is able to produce a smooth stream at an average range. The pump is comfortable to hold, however has an angular design and less-pronounced ridges, giving it less grip than other models. The volume of the pump is slightly larger than other models but this doesn’t prevent the user from experiencing pump lag when attempting rapid fire. The grip and trigger are comfortable and easy to hold, however because these are part of the reservoir they are less sturdy than other models. The reservoir of this gun is fixed at double the capacity of most other models of this type and has a large opening, intended to allow ice cubes to be inserted. The cap is a snap-cap with a rubberized inner layer to attempt to prevent leakage.
The price range of this blaster sits at around ten dollars US currency. The cap appears to be able to be turned ninety degrees either way before opening but there are no instructions indicating this and by first appearance looks like a standard snap-on. This, along with the fact that it has a pump action which provides lag and the fact that it is not quite as sturdy as other models, puts it in the lower end ranges of its series.
The pump of the Nerf Super Soaker Freezefire is similar to the 2013 Nerf Super Soaker Shockwave and Arctic Shock models in the fact that it is comfortable but provides less grip. It is also similar to the Shockwave in the fact that the volume of the pump is only slightly larger. The 2008 model known as the Water Warriors Avenger, although much older, actually has a definitive advantage in capacity and pump volume both, not to mention the fact that the older model included a nozzle selector.
