Try the Water Warriors hydropower range, or possibly the Krypton (ideally the newer version with the easier pump), for something comparably performing to at least the smaller of the CPS range.

I think dual-wielding is primarily a defensive strategy. If you're outnumbered, dual-wielding should allow you to at least hold off your opponents, long enough to withdraw to a stronger position or link up with an ally. Or if you alone can keep two enemies busy, that gives your team a numerical advantage somewhere else.

I find the SC powerpack and/or my 2 speedloaders mint as for dual weilding, as they are light and easy to carry round, maybe a CPS1000/1500 for backup when they run out. (Incidentially i also used to use old realestate signs for shields)

i normally use a monster x, then after pressure is gone i switch to a piston gun (vaporizer, i spent all my cash on the monster) which i use to return to base or safe location and re pump my monster. so a sidearm when using a bigger gun is necessary. if your using anything similar to a cps 1000 or smaller, getting swarmed is less likely and there is no real need for a bigger gun.

i use a sps2000, scatterblast, and pointbreak. then, if i`m lucky i pillage the enemy bases and get more. i run ang gun with the pointbreak until empty. then i use the scatterblast. i always cach guns in a tree, mostly several. then i can dualwield there when atacked.i usualy cary 4 guns, all day, and several gallons of water. duffelbags are good when cacheing , but backpacks are better in combat, unless you are artilery or a merc.

Atvan has a point. Even though the thread may be relating to your topic, when you post on a thread that has not had any posts in quite a while (excluding stickys) it is generally considered bad practice. While not specifically noted on the rules, you might want to start a new thread so that a new discussion can take place.

Do you purposely go and revive threads that have been revived before? The previous posts were disciplining sombody doing the same thing as you, not part of the conversation.

DUDE! I was just asking a question. Do you want me to make a separate thread so I could ask the question? If you were not allowed to post here there would not be an option. So just cool it and if you want to talk about it, go tell it to your blog.

If you have a big question, make a thread. If you have a small question, post in the small question thread. What a strange name for the purpose. In most forums, you would have been banned several times over already.

You shouldn't have to be warned more than once. That thread is stickied too, I believe..

Generally speaking, necroing a topic is permissible when you have something new and insightful or otherwise significant to add to the discussion. There are some special topics that are intended to remain running (like if it's about your latest gun or your arsenal) regardless of when the last post was. If neither of those conditions are met, then the topic has run its course and should be left alone.

Newness is not an excuse for not reading the rules or at the very least, applying a bit of common sense. Also, your question in this topic has been discussed before, it's what the search button is for.

Newness is also not an excuse for attacking someone verbally for trying to point out the rules. Even though he may not be an admin, atvan has a good point.
