|description = The Orca is the largest of the 2007 line of Water Warriors blasters.
 
|Pros = Good range, good accuracy, strap, 5 nozzles, power gauge, burbling noises fixed on 2008 model, holds more than the Blazer, nice styling, CPS-like power, well balanced
 
|Cons = Uses batteries, quite heavy, burbling noises on original model can give up your hiding spot, quite hard to fill, relies on an intake hose

The Orca is a 2007 Buzz Bee blaster that holds 2.5L of water. It is basically an improvement over the Blazer, but it has its shortcomings as well. It has a downwards-facing reservoir, causing it to make whale or orca-like sounds when air is drawn into the reservoir. This blaster has been discontinued, as it has been replaced by the Gorgon, which is essentially an Orca repaint with an upwards-facing reservoir, which means no more whale sounds and its power gauge removed. It is classified as an Elastic Blaster. It was rereleased in 2008. The 2008 update was pretty much like the Gorgon, upwards facing reservoir, and no whale sounds, but it still retained its Power Gauge.
