A pair of HITOP water guns.

Hitop Water Gun

Best Handle

We know it’s for kids, but what’s going to stop grown men from picking up a water gun or two? Nothing. Available in two-pack and three-pack variants, HITOP’s water guns are a bargain, as you can share them with a friend or your child before the match. The guns can store up to 300 cc of water (10 fluid ounces), unleashing a deluge as far as 27 feet.

With that amount of water, we believe the “ammunition” can last you for one round. Matches can be grueling and exhausting, but fortunately, the handles are ergonomically designed to provide comfort and security to its wielder, especially children.

Heytech 2-Pack Water Gun

Best for Gunslingers

Sporting a cutting-edge design, these Heytech big boys can shoot water at 32 feet, which is ideal for gunslingers who want to snipe their foes from afar. They can also hold 1,200 cc of water (40 ounces), lasting you for a round or two before you refill the guns and giving your squad the upper hand during the fight.

To use the guns, pull the pump and squeeze the trigger to release a stream of water on your enemies. They’re easy to use, so long as you don’t forget to move the pump. Imagine how awkward it will be if it happens to you.

The power-pump action on the water guns can unleash a stream of water up to 35 feet. That's quite far.

Regarding storage capacity, the Hydro Enforcer and the two Aqua Phasers can hold 35 and 15 ounces of water, respectively. Whether you or someone else will equip them, these water guns are ideal for individuals who love using guns with ample water tank capacity. Plus, they look like something out of Star Wars.
