The Super Soaker Lightning Storm Is A Water-Blasting Tommy Gun

Nostalgia? Who needs it? Where were badass Super Soakers like this when I was a kid?

The new Lightning Storm is sure to turn the tide of next water war in your favour. It carries more than a litre of liquid ammo and is capable of full-auto firing. It's the largest battery-operated Super Soaker to date and runs on four AA batteries. This means you'll be able to assault your opponent's position — or at least lay down continuous covering fire — without having to stop and pump. Sure it doesn't shoot quite as far as the Nerf Hydro Cannon (7.6m for the Lightning vs. 10.66m for the Cannon), but who cares when you're toting more than double the water power?

The Lightning Storm also includes a detachable stock and blast shield. It will retail for $US25 when it's released later this year. [Hasboro via DVice]
