Price/power (4/5): This weapon averages around 10.2 icons, so it's definitely not too weak. That being said, however...

Tactical (1/5): It has a significant chance of dealing very little damage when you need to knock out your opponent, and unless your opponent is using a U-Bend, you'll be in serious trouble if you are unfortunate enough to land a weak hit, which is a whopping 40% of the time. Not to mention that it's easily blocked by the Leaf Shield and Shiny Shoal Shell Shield. So stick to a conventional weapon instead.

Bonus (0/1): Like most Maractite weapons, this one isn't viable.

Closing remarks: If you like the icons, get an Ice Club. Otherwise, get a Scroll of the Wise or something similar. A Scroll of Ultranova is a good choice too.

Price/Power (2/5)
Averaging out to around 10.2 icons this water cannon is only barely at a point where it may be worth using. But honestly there are so many other better options out there that always offer 10.

Countermeasures (0/5)
Water is expected now days thanks to the Dr. Sloths Personal Bath Buddy and physical is really easy to block. Really the best part of this is the Air, which really isn't enough to be troubling.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
If you really want this combination of icons, including guaranteed air, I would suggest Ice Club instead. Other options which will always shoot at least 10 icons is Scroll of Knowledge and Energy Blaster

Other Points

Final Thoughts
Maracite weapons always look good, but this one doesn't live up to the name.

It is not every day that a weapon like Maractite Water Cannon gets released. This weapon is quite unusual, and it reminds me of Shaken-up Can of Neocola and Ultra Bubble Gun because 1) Maractite Water Cannon features similar icon types and 2) Maractite Water Cannon has a wide range of damage.

The weak hit delivers a measly 6 icons, well below par in this day and age. The strong hit, however, is much more formidable at 13 icons. Considering that this weapon is R96, it should soon be available on the Shop Wizard. (Or be fairly cheaply on the Trading Post at worst)

If this weapon deals a weak hit 40% of the time and a strong hit 60% of the time, then it will average 10.2 icons. 10.2 icons would be respectable for a weapon in this price range, but more reliable weaponry is typically the better road to take. Weapons like Maractite Cannon can doom to user if they fail to land big hits.

Additionally, Water and Physical icons are very easily blocked, the common Leaf Shield will make quick work of this weapon. Frozen Wand of Crystals will also defeat this weapon head to head.

Maractite Water Cannon is a fun weapon for those who like to take risks, but I personally would recommend the 9.8 icon constant Scroll of Ultranova over this weapon.
