Review

In 1998 Super Soaker released the first ever backpacked CPS blaster, the CPS 3000. Two years later they rereleased the 3000 as the 3200, basically the same gun with a new color scheme and just two adjustments: a hardshell backpack and a QFD compatible hose. Both the 3000 and 3200 are massive, weighing in at over 25 pounds when overloaded.

No stock blaster holds more water than the 30/32. When paired with 4 deadly nozzle settings few guns can compare to the soaking power these can generate. With that being said, range is rather disappointing for a blaster this size. Although some remarkable units have been able to hit 45 ft on 10x others struggle just to hit 40 ft, which is the most common max range on these blasters. This is decent, but pales in comparison to the SS 300, which I believe to be a superior tanker.

The 3000 and 3200 are still respectable primaries, capable of holding their own in score based games, and more than capable of hosing down the competition in soakfests. The four great nozzle settings really come into their own during a soakfest, when you need to transition from full out annihilation, to crowd control, to ammo conservation, and back!

 Nozzle Range Output/Sec Shot Time Shots/Tank (overloaded)*
5x  40 ft  8.1 oz  3.7 sec  10 full, 76 burst
10x  42 ft  12.9 oz  2.3 sec  “, 46 burst
20x  38 ft  18 oz  1.9 sec  “, 33 burst
Typhoon  32 ft  11 oz  2.5 sec  “, 55 burst

*overloaded = fill reservoir, pump, refill reservoir; burst = 1/4 sec “tap” shot
