SS 210 Mod

ss210

Objective: To increase shot time, range, and power.

This is a custom gun mod, specifically for the SS 100; however, you can use many of these steps when modding other blasters.

Background Info:
I used my SS 100 mk2 during the 2nd Battle of Thunder Gulch at the 2011 Community War.  This was a 1 hit scores game where you had to pause for 10 seconds whenever you got hit, and each side was allowed only 1 CPS weapon, which could have a nozzle no bigger than 5x.  I like this kind of game because it is tactical.  However, unlike 1hk games, there’s a lot of shooting going on.  So, naturally, people had to fill up quite often.  The 100 comes with a pretty good sized reservoir and pressure chamber, but I still had to fill up a lot.  Although I did pretty well, making ~12 hits as opposed to being hit only 3x, I realized that I could do even better if I could up my rate of fire while decreasing the amount of times I had to refill my gun.

This mod consists of the following smaller mods:
New pressure chamber (SS 200 reservoir)
New backpack reservoir (camelbak)
Add SS 200 pistol grip
Add CPS 1000 nozzle cap
Camo paint job
