Default Your Ideal Combat Armament (Scenario)

Alright, you have been invited to a massive team based all day war at the park. Teams will be created out of those who show up. Battles will be 1 hit elimination capture the flag. Terrain is mixed between open lawns, forests, gardens, and small buildings. Each base will have 2 hoses, a few buckets, and a QFD.

You are allowed to bring as many guns and as much equipment as you like, with the only requirement being that it cannot exceed what you can carry all at once.

What do you arm yourself with?

Default Re: Your Ideal Combat Armament (Scenario)

CPS 2000 is a great choice, I would also recommend using a CPS 2500 if you have one.

Also very useful would be a CPS 3000 or a CPS 1500. I would not choose a Monster XL, or other heavy Soaker since you will have to run much and you should be fast too^^

As backup, I would recommend a Splashzooca. If not available you can use a CPS 1000, or if you want something lighter you can use a strong XP or XXP (XP 310, Max-D secret strike, 6 k or the XXP 175) or a liquidator

Also a FlashFlood/ Artic Blast is a VERY GOOD choice for backup BUT ALSO as Primary weapon too! When one hit-kills the Flashflood burst is VERY GOOD, since it covers a great area while it is quite light and easy to carry.
Also the Hydroblitz could be very useful with its 6 bursts

If you are really FAST you can also just USE A WW PULSE MASTER or something like that

hope that helps

CPS 2000, with a MD6k as backup. Light but strong.
EDIT: Forgot to mention that my 6k is modded with a nozzle drill to ~4x, and a strap to make it easier to duel wield.

Which of these would YOU use? I know what I'd choose... I'll tell in a day or 2 once I see a few more responses.

Would you bring any additional equipment? Certain gear or clothes?

Take a picture of that power modded 1500 for us.

CPS 10k, with 2L speedloading bottle for the primary, and a douchenator (compact style) with a bike pump attatched.

Default Re: Your Ideal Combat Armament (Scenario)

Speed is my goal. The enemy may throw the big guns at me, but once I have the flag, they'll be eating my dust. I'll use an Arctic Blast or Flash Flood, modified along the lines of what Ben did here: http://forums.sscentral.org/t4743/ , perhaps a slightly smaller PC expansion to keep the blaster compact, and also reroute the main trigger to operate the flood nozzle.

Alternatively, I might try the Power Pak. More power and water, with it all being on my back and only a light blaster portion for my hands to carry. I'd probably modify the backpack for comfort and stability, so it's a minimal encumberance when running.

I can't go faster with a FF than I can with a 12k, so I stick with the 12k lol. If the field involves a lot of running, then that'll be a different case.

For me the CPS 10k provides a great balance of weight and speed, so I'd either pick that or my new favorite, the helix. (Yea, its underpowered, but the spread is AMAZING)

Yes, it is underpowered and it is a piston blaster. The nozzle is something funny but that is it, nothing more to say. I would not consider this as AMAZING....But if you love it, nice thing for you

I do prefer big and strong CPS guns

Would make the Helix much great if someone could add a small motor making the gun firing continously

The gun isn't "AMAZING" as i said, but the spread of it firing is. It can make sure that you don't miss, even if you are blinded by (insert reason here)

There's other blasters with spread though, like the Monster X, or the CPS 3000. And there's the simple approach of waving any blaster a bit while firing - though that works better with blasters with long shot time, ie not CPSes.

Default Re: Your Ideal Combat Armament (Scenario)

I just found something to replace the helix, surprisingly. I turned the fan nozzle on my vanquisher into a cross sort of design. It gives me a great spread with great shot time, and so the helix is destined to become a loaner.
