The 8 Best Water Guns and Blasters for 2021

Maybe you spent your childhood and teenage years participating in exhilarating water gun matches with your friends and family in the backyard, sniping at them from behind, or dual-wielding water pistols because you wanted to be a badass sharpshooter. Brings back good ol’ memories, doesn’t it? Sadly, we tend to forget to get in touch with our inner child because we need to survive the hubbub of daily life.

Well, soldier, that’s life. But that does not mean you should not take a break. So, why don’t you invite your family or best buddies for a water gun match? Surely, they are more than eager to get into the battlefield with you. If you’re eager to sharpen your aiming skills in time for the fight, we’ve compiled a list of the best water guns for men this 2021.

Best Pump-Action: Nerf Fortnite Super Soaker Water Blaster

Nerf Fortnite Super Soaker Water Blaster

Want to make your water gun fights more epic? Or perhaps you’re a fan of Fortnite who wants to spice up the battleground with the best Nerf guns for adults? We recommend taking the Nerf Fortnite Super Soaker to blast your opponents with water, forcing them to run for cover for fear of being drenched from head to toe. All you have to do is fill the shotgun with water and move the pump to unleash a powerful stream of water at your helpless opponents. That’s right, you don’t have to pull the trigger to fire. Be sure to practice your aiming skills in the training area before the big fight.

Best Design: Spyra One

SpyraOne Blue

Ok, so you’re not messing around. Time to bring out the big-boy toys and invest in a Spyra One adult water gun. Initially launched on Kickstarter, Spyra One is delivered its first batch last summer. The futuristic block design reaches 50 feet and sprays 24 “powerful water bullets” the website says. There’s an automatic refill that takes about 10 seconds, plus a digital display to show your tank and battery status. Yep, big boy toys take batteries. But the Sypra One is also a no-pump, 100% pressure soaker that will bring grown dudes to tears. Choose your color: red or blue.

Best Handle: HITOP Water Gun

HITOP Water Gun

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 (10 fl oz) water, unleashing a deluge of water 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.

Best Water Tank Capacity: Heytech 2-Pack Water Gun

Heytech 2-Pack Water Gun

Sporting a cutting-edge design, these big boys can shoot water at 32 feet, ideal for gunslingers who want to snipe their foes from afar. They can also hold 1,200 CC water (40 oz), 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 at 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.

Best for Couples and Friends: Joyin Phaser High Capacity Water Gun

JOYIN High Capacity Water Gun

Surprise the woman in your life with one of Joyin’s water guns so she can engage in a heart-pounding 1v1 match with you, or let her (including you, of course) defeat your buddies in a squad deathmatch to show everyone who’s boss. The guns’ power-pump action can unleash a stream of water up to 35 feet. That’s quite far, admittedly. Regarding storage capacity, the Hydro Enforcer and the two Aqua Phasers can hold 35 oz and 15 of water, respectively. Whether you or someone will equip them, these water guns are ideal for individuals who love using guns with ample water tank capacity.

Best for sniping: Ehpow Water Gun

Ephow Water Gun

Ehpow’s water gun may be a bit smaller than other models made for children (uh, manchildren). But it can fire water between 27.2 feet to a staggering 40.4 feet, making this gun a top choice for wannabe snipers. How is that possible? Fill the water gun with 600 CC water (20 oz), pump it a few times to build pressure, and watch it spray water at a distance! It’s challenging to use this weapon during fast-paced water gunfights. Be quick on your feet and Ehpow’s water gun will serve you all. Given its design, this water gun from Ehpow makes you feel like you’re a gunslinger from the future

Best bundle: Zuru X-Shot Water Blaster Pack

X-Shot Water Blaster Value Pack (Typhoon Thunder and Stealth Soaker)

Have your kids improve their marksmanship skills with the bundle pack’s Zuru X-Shot Water Warfare Double Stealth Soakers. These two water guns can hold 8 oz of water and reach 16 feet. Compact and functional, these blasters are perfect for letting your kid execute sucker punches at unsuspecting opponents.

Meanwhile, the Typhoon Thunder Soakers are the powerhouses of the bundle pack, able to fire powerful shots as far as 30 feet accurately. With a tank capacity of 19 oz, the Typhoon Thunder is easy to refill so you can return to the battlefield quickly and at the ready. We recommend both water guns if you plan to hold an intense family water gun fight at home. They’re great for dual-wielding too if you want to be a kickass squad member.

Best easy-to-fill water gun: Nerf Super Soaker Fortnite TS-R Water Blaster

NERF Fortnite TS-R Super Soaker Water Blaster Toy

Modeled from the blaster in the online video game Fortnite, this Nerf water gun replicates the exact style and colors, only this one you can hold it in your real damn hands. Quick fill and fire with a pump-action handle that unleashes massive soaker power. If you find yourself shouting, “He’s one shot!” just roll with it until the 36 fl oz tank is spent, which can take about 41 shots.
