The Super Soaker CPS 2000 was released in 1996 and was the first member of the CPS family. It is the most powerful Super Soaker released to date, both in terms of range and flow rate. No Super Soaker made since come close to its power. Rumor has it that Larami had to tone down the power of subsequent guns after complaints that this one was too powerful.
To get you in the mood, some stats:
- Dimensions: 87cm x 13 cm x 30 cm
Reservoir Volume: 3.1L
Firing chamber volume: 900mL
Pump volume: 31 mL
Flow rate : 849 mL/s
Range (flat) : 8-10m
Range (45 degrees) : 14-16m
849 mL/s may not mean much too you, I'll just say that it's enough to get you very wet very quickly. It's also quite a bit more that other guns, the second most powerful Super Soaker
(the Super Soaker 2500
) only has a flow rate of 684mL/s. It completely outclasses guns in the XP series
, which tend to have flow rates below 100mL/s.
The Super Soaker 2000's high flow rate makes totally soaking people very easy, but does has disadvantages. As you can see, your firing chamber only gives you a second of continuous fire, after which you will need to repressurize. 3.1 L may seem like a big reservoir, but with the CPS 2000, that only adds up to about 3.5 seconds of firing time. Later models allowed you to switch to a smaller nozzle to save water.
Although it is a bit of a beast of a gun, the CPS 2000 is a nice weapon to have around, as it outranges all the other Super Soakers and a single blast can drench someone. It is however very easy to use all your water up without noticing. You would be well advised to keep extra water and a secondary weapon handy.A nice feature is the track mounted pump. Pumps on other super soakers tend to be a weak spot as it is all too easy to break them while trying to pump too hard. It also has a gauge so you can see how full the firing chamber is.
The range of the CPS 2000 makes it ideal for shooting tourists in punts from a bridge or for punt warfare. Even if you don't have an interest in either of those activities it's worth having a CPS 2000 just for the looks people give you.
