This series features an entirely new concept for its soakers; all new soakers were designed for competitive team play and all came packaged with SoakerTags. These SoakerTags, which the series borrowed its name from, were body targets that would clip to players and, when struck with water, would disintegrate. These were accompanied by several re-releases from the previous CPS, Max-D and XP lines.
The oldest soakers in the series is the XP-70, initially released in 1998 under the XP series. All five of the products were released under a later series, and one is still being produced in a distant form.
