The Hydro Cannon is a Nerf Super Soaker that was released in 2011 under the Nerf Super Soaker series.

It comes packaged with a Hydro Cannon shield.


It is a pump-action realistic water soaker. It features a shield that can block incoming water and can help the user aim their shot.

There are three tactical rails on the Hydro Cannon. Two are diagonal and on either side of the top, which allows for ambidextrous use with the shield. The third is level and up at the muzzle. Its refill cap is located on the right side of the soaker near the integrated shoulder stock. It also has strap attachments under the nozzle and at the end of the handle; it however does not come with a strap.

This is the first Super Soaker to use elastic pressure since 2007's Hydro Blitz.

Value packs

It was released in a Costco-exclusive dual pack. Unlike other soaker dual packs, it does not feature the second Hydro Cannon in a "two-player" color scheme.


The Hydro Cannon was the biggest of the new soakers for 2011. Despite all of the other 2011 soakers receiving re-packaging for the 2012 lineup, this was not. This soaker's position as biggest soaker was replaced by the Lightningstorm the following year.


  • If pumped up more than about fifteen times, the soaker will have noticeable recoil due to the pressure inside it being released when the trigger is pulled.
