The CPS 2100 is the last gun to evolve from the CPS 1000 -> 1200 -> 2100 line. It’s also the smallest gun in the lineup, with the smallest reservoir and pressure chamber of the 3, but not by a whole lot. The 2100 also differs in the fact that it has a guided pump. The gun is actually pretty sturdy, the one in the picture just went through 4 years of major wars, being loaned out, and tossed around by people who shouldn’t have been using it. Alright, so how does she stack up?
Quite well actually! In fact, it could be argued that the 2100 is the most popular gun in the series. It shoots far enough to be competitive in elimination and score based games (especially if you k mod) and it hits hard and has good output for soakfests. For soakfests it is useful to fight alongside team members that have long shot times – cuz your short shot time will leave you pumping a lot!
This gun is the most structurally sound of the 3 aforementioned guns. The guided pump is a great addition. Unfortunately, it does not come with a strap, so you will probably want to make your own.
There are 4 marks of the CPS 2100. They are quite different from each other, so they warrant comparison. Super Soaker Central does an impeccable job describing the differences between the marks, so I will refer you to SSC when it comes to being able to visually tell the guns apart. I gathered a lot of statistics on the first 3 marks and have found that the most powerful is generally the mk1, and the least powerful is generally the mk3. The 2100 shows greater performance variance than just about any other blaster I’ve tested. Range varied from 36 to 42 ft and output varied from 4.8 to 7.2 oz/sec. I originally listed statistics for the marks separately, but recently found some models that bucked the aforementioned trends. Because of this I’ve decided just to average out all statistical values measured.
