The World’s Greatest Water Gun Has Six Spinning, Soaking Barrels

Step aside, Super Soaker. The one-time king of summer fun has officially been usurped by this custom creation from the folks behind Sugru. It looks like something Schwarzenegger used in an action film, but it’s instead designed for mowing down people with a harmless soaking.

For those not in the know, Sugru is a soft, mouldable putty that dries overnight into a strong but flexible rubber that has endless uses — one of which is being the perfect way to seal pipe connections on a home-made water gun. Powered by a backpack CO2 tank, the soaker has a range of about 12 metres, which means you’ll probably get wet from retaliation. But this particular water gun is more about intimidation than stealth.
