Water Warriors Air Pressure.:

iS_waterwarriors_wwhornet_01tbIn 2003, Buzz Bee Toys Inc. released the Water Warriors series. In many respects, the Water Warrior-brand of soakers appears somehow similar in general design and sizing compared to earlier Super Soaker XP-class blasters. This comes at no surprise when one realizes that many employees at Buzz Bee Toys were former employees at Larami Ltd. Styling aside, the larger Water Warrior blasters feature an electronic pressure gauge that glows green to indicate when the pressure chamber is maximally pressurized. Only the smaller of the Water Warrior blasters fall under the Air Pressure Series. The larger Water Warriors blasters employ a different pressurization system akin to CPS-technology and are thus categorized under the Constant Pressure Series. The Zzapper, Firefly, and Hornet were released in 2003.

In 2004, the Black Widow and Yellow Jacket were released. Both of these soakers appeared to be restylings on the Firefly and Hornet.

In 2005, the Water Warriors Stinger was released, another small pistol-class air-pressure water blaster.

In 2007, a number of blasters were restyled and renamed. For the air-pressure blasters, the Water Warriors Stingray and Hammerhead took the place of the Stinger and Black Widow.

For 2009, a new styling of water blasters was released, including the air-pressure based Water Warriors Equalizer and Water Warriors Renegade. A smaller pistol-sized blaster was also released, the Water Warriors Deluge.

In late-2010, Buzz Bee Toys Inc. was served an injunction due to a lawsuit brought up against it by Hasbro Inc. The injunction barred Buzz Bee Toys Inc. from producing any rubber-bladder-based water blasters while the patent for the CPS-system is still active. Because of this, Buzz Bee Toys Inc. was forced to change the technology within a number of their models, removing their Hydro-Power bladders and diaphragms, replacing them with air-pressure chambers. As such, for 2011, all pressurized blasters were air-pressure based even if they were once elastic-based (with the exception of a couple of spring-based blasters). 2011 saw the release of the small-to-mid sized Water Warriors Goblin, Water Warriors Hydra, and Water Warriors Titan. Two larger blasters that were once Hydro-Power-based were rereleased in 2011 as the Water Warriors Sphynx and Water Warriors Gorgon.

For 2012, Buzz Bee Toys Inc. stuck with developing new air-pressure water blaster models. The Water Warriors Viper and Water Warriors Python look like tweaked and improved versions of previous Water Warriors models. However, the largest blaster released in 2012, the Water Warriors Colossus, features new styling with a single, large air pressure chamber in the front.

In 2013, Buzz Bee Toys Inc. introduced a number of successor blasters in the Water Warriors line including the Water Warriors Python 2 and Water Warriors Colossus 2. The largest new air pressure blaster, the Water Warriors Drench 'n Blast, featured dual nozzles and dual triggers, but oddly uses pressurized reservoir technology. While the Drench 'n Blast has decent capacity, it simply requires a huge number of pumps to pressurize properly. A couple of older designs were also brought back, namely the Water Warriors Outlaw (a rebranded Water Warriors Equalizer) and the Water Warriors Renegade.
