Found pictures of the upcoming 2018 Nerf Super Soaker Zombie Strike Ripstorm from this website.
This design reminds me of the Super Soaker Hydro Blade (2004). However, unlike the Hydro Blade, I do not believe that the Ripstorm is a pressurized water blaster. How well it functions in stream or “shred” mode remains to be seen.
Update: Just realized the Nerf Super Soaker Zombie Strike Ripstorm is already available for sale on Amazon.com.
Here, we reveal a possible image of a prototype NextGen Nerf Super Soaker. Based on the popularity of the 2018 Nerf Super Soaker Splashmouth water gun model, Hasbro may be developing a new series under the “CPS” moniker.

I can’t say I’ve done much testing on this water blaster beyond loading it and pumping it a handful of times, but I suppose the most surprising thing about the Nerf Super Soaker Splashmouth is that they (Hasbro) would even think this would be a good idea in the first place!
Just when I thought a pump-action water blaster couldn’t get worse. The pump, itself, actually seems to function decently for a pump-action blaster, but the large top cap does not seal tightly (no surprise) and the “splash” attack has limited range (a bucket would be better) and does a great job at disarming the user as well.
I believe the three words sum up the Nerf Super Soaker Splashmouth best are: What. The. Heck?
Stats to be measured, but I’m not particularly inspired by this water blaster.
A clearer image of the upcoming 2018 Nerf Super Soaker Twin Tide was found on this website.
As expected, the Twin Tide appears to be a standard pump-action water blaster featuring over-under dual nozzle configuration. The newer Nerf Super Soaker models seem to be using their handle/trip regions as part of their reservoir and can do so easily since they have no trigger or other more complex internals in that region of the blaster’s body. As both nozzles are powered by the same pump, taking its apparent size into consideration, either the nozzles will be slightly smaller than usual in order to maintain functional stream range. Time and testing will tell. More information to be posted as it becomes available.
Recent found this clearer picture of the upcoming 2018 Nerf Super Soaker SplashMouth on this website.
From this image and the previous illustration seen, the novelty of this pump-action water blaster is the fact that its reservoir has a top panel that can be opened (by depressing that tab at the back), allowing one to “splash” out its reservoir contents. I really cannot comment on whether this would be a particularly effective water attack unless at really close-range. More info on this water blaster will be posted as it becomes available.
Came across this clearer image of the upcoming 2018 Nerf Super Soaker Soakzooka on this website.
Granted, while the image is clearer, I still haven’t quite figured out how it is likely to work. What I initially thought would be a pivoting handle now appears to possibly slide (?) downwards (?). Or perhaps it does pivot on the bottom point, making the nozzle piece slide in and out (?). It appears to have up to 7 nozzles, but could actually be 6 or even just one; at thing angle, cannot tell which of those holes actually have nozzles in them.
Will post more as information come available.
Enjoy the pic and soak on!

Stumbled across one more name for a possible upcoming Nerf Super Soaker water blaster for 2018: the Supersoaker Zombie Strike Ripstorm.
Beyond its name, no pictures or other information is presently available.
Will keep searching and posting info as it becomes available. Soak on!
As noted by jja on WaterWar.net, a few upcoming 2018 Nerf Super Soaker model images have been found.
Based on these low-resolution images, the Splash Mouth and Twin Tide appear to be pump-action, but am unclear on the Soakzooka. If I were to guess, the Soakzooka might use a trigger-less small stored-energy system like the 2008 Super Soaker Quick Blast, but this is purely speculation due to the pump shape and lack of a notable trigger (unless that isn’t a pump, but a lever-based trigger). As for why a water blaster with “gatling-gun”-type styling was given a name containing “-zooka” remains to be understood. As for the “Splash Mouth”, it looks like water can be *sloshed* out of a hole in the top (?).
I did stumble across one other name for a possible upcoming 2018 Nerf Super Soaker, the Nerf Super Soaker Zombie Strike Ripstorm, but as there are no images, yet, it remains unclear whether this item will actually be available, yet.
More info on upcoming water blasters as information becomes available. Soak on!
