The Super Charger 600 is one of the smallest Super Soakers to utilize CPS technology. The greatest advantage of any version of the SC 600 is its incredibly long shot time. As if 12 seconds wasn’t long enough you can keep shooting until you run out of water if you pump while shooting. For most guns I recommend tap shots for 1hk and 1hs games, but with the 600 you should be able to take longer bursts due to its longer than average field life. I also recommend filling the gun up, pumping up the pressure chamber, and refilling it if you aren’t using a QFD. The PC is almost as big as the actual reservoir.

The 600 mk2 was arguably the best gun in its class for over ten years. In 2012 Water Warriors released the Colossus, which is more powerful and shoots further than the 600. Even so, the 600 still remains one of the best guns for its size. Just make sure you buy an mk2. There are 3 known versions of the this gun. I have been able to get my hands on an mk3 to test yet. I tested 2 mk1s and 4 mk2s to get the following stats:

Mk Range Output ShotTime Taps/Tank
1 33 ft 1.2oz/sec 19 sec  200
2 37 1.8 11.5  133
3  ?  ?  ?  ?

The mk 1 features a tan body, orange tanks, and black detailing. The mk2 features a tan body, orange tanks, and grey detailing. The mk3 which was released in 2000 features a blue body and orange tanks. Since I don’t recommend buying an mk1 and since mk3s are so rare and I’ve never tested one, the ratings to the left are for the mark 2.

No matter which mark you get, this is a very tough gun. One of the toughest Super Soaker ever made. Due to the length of the gun and the weight distribution you’re not as likely to snap the pump on the 600 as you would on some guns, but I would still recommending doing a pump reinforcement since the pump isn’t tracked. Also lube the pump up from time to time. I’ve seen the O-ring get stuck in the pump duct. It was unlikely, but it can happen.
