Honestly I am not surprised. Hasbro is a big corporation and on their histogram, Super Soaker makes up a very small amount of their profits.
Hasbro obviously works harder on the brands that are doing the best, and right now these blasters will likely keep declining in usefulness.
For the simple reason that when they make trash guns less people buy them leading to hasbro making even more trashy guns.
It is sad really as this means that the prices for the water guns that are actually worthwhile in a water fight will go up until we (the majority) will resort to using nothing but homemades as a weapon.
There is the possibility that water warriors will try again at making cps but I will leave that to another post.
Feel free to post whatever you'd like below about the direction stock water guns are taking.
