Frequently-Asked Questions

  • Can the Ammo hurt or injure someone?
    • No.  The ammo will not cause injuries. Still, you should not fire your weapon at someone’s face or eyes. If it hits a hard surface it will normally break apart on impact, breaking down into a soft gel.
  • Is it safe to eat Xploderz Ammo?
    • Do not eat Xploderz Ammo. The Ammo is non-toxic and should pass through the digestive system without causing any harm. It is, however, considered a small part, and does pose a choking hazard. If a substantial number of Xploderz Ammo are swallowed, seek immediate medical attention.
  • How do you dispose of Xploderz Ammo?
    • Throw the ammo in the rubbish, or better still, crush it into the garden soil. Do not dispose of Ammo in a drain. Superabsorbent polymers were developed by the US Department of Agriculture in the 1960s to conserve water and keep crops moist in times of drought. They are planted under the turf in golf courses to reduce water use. You too can save water by working your spent Ammo into the soil.
  • Does Xploderz Ammo stain?
    • No. It does not stain clothing, carpeting or any other fabric.
  • I am having trouble attaching my ammo magazine to my Xploderz? What should I do?
    • Take a look at the instructional videos. Note that the side of the clip and the side of the Xploderz blaster has a triangle marking which should be lined up before sliding clip back in the housing. 
  • The ammo is stuck in my Xploderz blaster –how do I release it?
    • Remove the clip from your Xploderz blaster.
    • Clear any broken ammo from the clip and the clip receiver on top of the Xploderz blaster.
    • Fire the blaster 8-12 times to release any ammo from the chamber.
    • Re-install clip with fresh ammo and fire your Xploderz blaster.
    • If still not firing repeat above steps and install an empty clip full of water onto your Xploderz blaster (you will need to do this quickly as the water will drain from the clip).
    • Fire your Xploderz blaster with the water-filled clip until it is cleared out.
    • Re-install clip with fresh ammo and fire your Xploderz blaster.
  • My Xploderz blaster isn’t firing correctly, the shooting distance is poor.
    • Remember to pull the reload knob back each time you fire.
    • Check loading and firing techniques. Do not point Xploderz blasters continuously towards the ground when firing — the ammo will not fire properly.

    • It is a superabsorbent polymer made of acrylic acid, sodium hydroxide, water, and color pigment. It is non-toxic
  • Can I use the same Ammo Clip for all the blasters?
    • Yes.
  • Can the Ammo be reused?
    • No, once you have fired your ammo it cannot be reinserted in your Xploderz blaster.

    • Pour water into the opening on top of the Ammo Clip or Ammo Depot.  Leave to soak for 15 minutes and turn over to drain.
  • My Ammo is stuck in the Ammo Clip.  What should I do?
