Hasbro originally produced Super Soaker water blasters before 2011 in which they decided to brand Super Soaker and NERF together, at which point blasters produced were compatible both with tactical rail accessories and stock attachments and were typically colored white, black and orange. Some blasters even included clips that held water that could be interchangeable between blasters and used to reload blasters on the fly. Later blasters stopped having a NERF compatible them and had more classic Super Soaker colors. Super Soakers type blasters were produced for various lines such as Zombie Strike and Rebelle and Super Soakers also had their own sub-lines. The [[ThemeNaming Storm]] series introduced battery powered blasters using an electric siphon for fully-automatic fire. The [[XtremeKoolLetterz X-TREME]] blasters were light blue on white to give an ice theme. Some blasters work by pressuring the water and fired by a trigger, some lack a trigger and fire when you pump the grip and was that way for a long time due to patent issues using a pressure system until it returned with the [=H2Ops=] sub-line.
