Earlier this year I went with a CPS 1000 and a duffel bag with water bottles. While strong and would generally win I face several problems I hope I could fix with your expertise.
1. Miss Cps1000 shot and someone with a Nerf SwitchShot/Piston Water gun would just run at me and empty their whole container of water on my face. I could do nothing besides run because of pumps require to shoot back.
2. After each shot I was require to pump a few times before I could attack again. I would love fast attack speed guns.
3. Water supply runs out too fast on my CPS 1000.
4. Is there a gun with a good Shot Time(Constant stream) ? Isoaker.com provides information about this but you can't sort by Shot Time making it hard for me to find.
My Personal Suggestions
For some reason, I missed this part of the OP.
Essentially, what's happening here is equivalent to this: You have an automatic AR and your opponents have knives. You are unloading the entire magazine at an opponent in full auto without even trying to aim at all, while he stays in cover and away from your shots. Then he runs up to you and stabs you while you're fumbling to reload. You're basically saying you want to downgrade to a knife (because it doesn't need to be reloaded) or carry another AR (for more firepower) to defeat them.
Step 1: Learn how to aim and shoot. Don't waste ammo. If you're going to hold the trigger down, only do so when you know for certain that your stream will make the hit.
Step 2: Keep moving. If you're getting hit by a Switch Shot when you have almost twice the range, you're probably not moving enough.
In addition, don't think of the water you have in terms of continuous streams, but in terms of water volumes and pumps. A Switch Shot holds 570mL in its mag, with a pump volume of 19mL. That means an opponent has to hit you 30 times
in order to empty that magazine. Your CPS 1000 on the other hand, carries 620mL and empties that in 3-4 seconds. 35mL pump means it takes about 18 pumps to fill from empty, which is a bit longer than the time it takes to switch mags, but still way faster overall. (Because your opponent needs 30 pumps as opposed to 18, and each pump he makes has to hit you which is much more difficult because of the miniscule range and "stream" size of the Switch Shot.) Your opponent has to carry 4 mags to match the amount of water in a CPS 1000 tank.
Point is, you can cycle through water way faster than anyone else nearby can, and you can still boost your water carrying capacity by carrying water bottle refills. (You can still shoot and attack while refilling.) Once you learn how to use a CPS, your main problem will be that everyone else will want to gang up on you. Have some water balloons in a pouch ready for that!
So with that said, I wouldn't even bother with switching guns at this point, save for gathering up some CPS's or other good blasters. Get comfortable using them, get used to low shot times, high capacities, high output, and high range. For soakfests, backpacks are generally ideal IMO, but it's personal preference on how much waterpower you want to bring in.
"Main rule: No water balloon slongshots." Fine by me! Get the bike pump and Pringles' cans over here!
