Price/Power (2/5)
It looks and sounds like it should be a lot more expensive than it is purely on how it likely should have been retired years ago. Unfortunately, it lives in a post icon inflation world where people can be GIVEN an item like the Blaze or Water Powered Pistol- then buy something like a Skarls Hasty Mace. There are just so many other options out there that are given freely or purchased cheaply.

Countermeasures (2/5)
On this combination of icons alone- this item by far blows away any competition. It can be blocked relatively well with something like a Hubrid Nox Memorial Shield or even a Fitted Velvet Cloak- but I am not sure anyone would expect you to use this, so they likely wouldn't be set on countering it.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Skarls Hasty Mace, {{Kelpbeard's Trident}} - there are options.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
Don't get me wrong- it is markedly better than the Chia Bubble Gun. If I was rating weapons on descriptions - I don't know if it'd get a 0 due to the snark of suggesting that a Chia Bubble Gun user should upgrade to an item this expensive or a 10 for being 100% truthful advertising.

Pop For Your 'Points (2/3): There was a time when Ultra Bubble Gun cost 4 million neopoints. Even when the price hit 5 million neopoints (about what you should expect at the time of writing), it was still the best attack weapon cheaper than Kelpbeards Trident. Then they added in Skarls Hasty Mace on July 28th, 2012. The price of Skarls Hasty Mace is often around 6.7 at most when purchased secondhand, and so it stole Ultra Bubble Gun's thunder. So Ultra Bubble Gun took the lesser title of best constant cheaper than Skarls Hasty Mace. And a couple weapons released since then have further encroached upon the utility of UBG, and they will be discussed momentarily.

Long story made short (but longer again if you read on), Ultra Bubble Gun is arguably the best weapon for its price, but is awkwardly placed between two starter constants you'd want first and the relatively cheap upgrade to Skarls Hasty Mace. UBG is sort of the weapon for people who spend all their wealth on a well-rounded set of 7 weapons and have enough left for one constant but not enough for Skarls Hasty Mace or better.

In Battle (2/5): You don't take this to a HT set battle with someone, unless the supplemental air somehow helps you get past their shields or reflectors when they've properly prepared for your other constants. Ultra Bubble Gun being in your set is almost always due to a constrained budget. That said, if you and your opponent are essentially around the level of 2x Dr. Sloths Personal Bath Buddy, and Ultra Bubble Gun is something you can afford, it can give you an edge and help you win.

Even though Ultra Bubble Gun averages 13.33 icons, it outdamages th...
