One word: eBay! Get a CPS 2000 or something else like a CPS 3200 and you won't need to have a backup weapon. Intimidation will be your backup, oh, and huge resoviour size.

No offense rinkydinkysplat, but you don't exactly have a CPS 2000 yourself.

I too would recommend the CPS 2100. I got one at Sports Authority for $8, and it works great. It is starting to become my favorite weapon. (My just-barely favorite is the 2700, but they don't make them anymore ). I have also heard they have good range and are easy to mod...

For one things the new guns arent XPBackfire-esque, they can be modded to make something good, the liquidator is a awesome backup. And I like to use the vaporizer as a secondary weapon.

Ive said before that a backup gun should be powerful enough to replace a main gun. My backup is a 21000.

The CPS 4100 is not easy to get

Theres about 6 of them on Ebay each week.

The Triple Aggresor looks like the coolest one.

Don't buy a gun based on what it looks like, you should buy it for its preformance.
"Use not beauty"-Something like the helix has all these gimmicks, but preforms sub-standard. Something like the 2500 has not one inch of extra gimmicks, and look at the power. Same for the 2000 and the such.

Grab a CPS 2100, it's cheaper, probably has better power, and shoots farther than the CPS 4100. You can always get the CPS 4100 on ebay for about $30 plus shipping if you just can't do without one.
Hmm...I think you're wrong on that King. When I tested, my 2100 shot about the same as my 4100 on 8.5x, a bigger nozzle. Also, the 4100 has 4 nozzles for convinience and a bigger reserve and a strap. Its width and heigh are the same as the 2100, and it is only about 6 inches longer. Hardly bigger, but overall better.

The 2100 is amazingly light and scores points on mobility. It also can be easily k-modded in half an hour. The 2100 is also easy to pump and takes less pumps than the 4100. The 4100 does though have 4 nozzle settings and more capacity. The strap isnt exactly a plus as I didn't find it necessary and instead used it for my 2500 which came with no strap. The 2100 has a strong trigger. :P
2100 range is better than the 4100, but the 4100 8.5x nozzle is larger than the 2100's 7.5x. Its really a tossup-both guns have their advantages and disadvantages.

I find the 4100's strap useful. I don't know why you don't but I would like to have times where I Don't have to hold it. I like the time to time option of letting it hang on my shoulder, giving my arms a break.

Your definatly right that its a toss up between the 4100 and the 2100. Personally I use the 21000 as my main weapon because im a commander on the field. It also depends on what is needed more in the battle field. If it's range, the 21000 is what I go for. If its power, I go with the 4100. Both are great guns that I use all the time.

Edit: Grammar

Again, when I tested I got the range that was almost the same on both guns...one of us is wrong. But I will say that the 4100 has less pumps, 16 for the 4100 and 17 for the 2100. IMO, the 4100 has more advantages than the 2100, the only ones I can find for my 2100 are that it's smaller and is easy to mod, and has a stronger trigger. My 4100 has a strap, is almost the same size yet has a reserve 18 oz. bigger, and has 4 convinient nozzle settings. So I think that the 4100 is a bit better but if he plans on modding then the 2100 is better. If he is a beginning water guy he should get the 4100 because it is very balanced and is convinient and stuff, and if he's an advanced water guy he should get the 2100 to mod the Hasbro HQ out of it, but if not the 4100 would be the better choice. Unmodded, though, I think the 4100 is the better choice.

I think [as Ive said before] that the battle conditions determine the better gun.
In our wars range is very important and output matters not. Heavy guns will help, but mobility is essential and therefore a small, yet hard hitting gun will prevail.
In a battle where output matters most aka "soakfests", a 4100 would fare better. You might be right that the 4100 has slightly less pumps, but I can pump the 2100 faster than the 4100. The 2100 gets more shots out of the tank, up to 17 if its modded. If you are a beginner you should get the 2100, simply because it weighs next to nothing, even after some intense modding.
