I am now using my CPS 2500 with my Power Pak as a backup. Once the 2500 is drained, I still have a 10x nozzle with a huge PC to back me up. When I'm away from a QFD though, I use my CPS 2700 instead of my Power Pak. It isn't THAT heavy. :p

I prefer a CPS 2100 (with an added strap) alongside an SC Big Trouble. The BT serves not only as an effective close range weapon, but can also be used to reload my 2100 if needed.

SC Big trouble

I mix and match what little I have working at the moment - However I like a CPS as a main weapon and an air pressure gun as back up.

So in general that means CPS 2700 + My modded triple aggressor. However if I plan to dual wield, then I'll likely take my Hydroblade - it balances better than the 3XA.

And the CPS 2700 isn't a problem one handed - it's got a second bullpup trigger mounted on the column in front of the trigger.

My CPS 1700 with my CPS 2000 is interesting. It's kind of heavy, but not too bad. I'll have to make decisions in the future. I really like using a solo gun better at this point.

Dual-wielding Triple shots is awesome. You run up to someone with the wide blast on, time your shots perfectly, and WHAM!

2500+310+spiper post=1337
i usually hide on my stomach in a sniper spot with my 2500 pointing in the direction of the most likely area of approach and my 310 on my other side as a backup
a true sniper will wait any length necessary to get a kill, even if his freinds go and have 2 water wars in the meantime...without him...

I usually don't like dual wielding--but if I had to, I would use a CPS 1500/1700 as a primary and a Power Pak as my secondary. It's a shame I have neither of those guns, but the 1500/1700 can be outclassed by practically any homemade...

Most realistically, I'm thinking of using either of my CPS 2100 or CPS 1000, both with homemade straps, and an XP 70 in my backpack as a backup. I would never try to dual-wield one of those (CPS's) with anything, but I'm gonna try out dual XP 70s, those probably wouldn't be too bad since they pressurize fully within seven pumps or less.

I love my dual hornets. They've been my favourite weapons for a while. As long as there's some cover to use so you can pump, they're great guns.
Yes, I dual-wield. And it's awesome. I can target two people at a time, and I need to pump less with a single target (left - right, left - right, etc.).

If you mean combo as in one at a time, then it's CPS 12000 and Max-D 2000 with belt conversion.

I like to use a monster and a tripshot (i wish they made a max infusion triple shot with a serpart air chamber) with a strap connected to the triple shot though that opening above the pump and then connected it to my belt so it hung kinda by my side so i could just pick it up when i needed it.other combos i have done were
-duel weilding triple shots
-duel CPS 2500s
-duel Flashfloods one with a aqua pack
-duel xp 310s (works great!)
-duel sphaszookas (before one got stolen)
-and yes duel monster XLs and in doing this i highly recommend you have some nice comfy straps and a physicaly fit

I've changed what I'm going to use now, and I will use it this 4th of July, my special CPS 11000.

I usually get cast in the heavy guns field, so I carry my 2000 and my XL. Obviously, I don't move around too much, and I'll only fire the XL if I'm out of water in the 2000 and retreating or I've found a good spot to set up the bipod. I always have some kind of Storm pistol with me too, just in case.
Heavy artillery + high ground = an easy battle.
Why else would they call me Leviathan?

I use a 36ft xp310 and a tiny non-brand pistol that is 25cm long. I've got a lot of bigger guns but this wee thing smashes them for effectiveness with it's insane-for-size range (only 330ml reserviour but it goes past 40ft mark easily and if your strong enough it can go beyond 50ft.

^^Carrying 20 pounds that you're not going to use for a while on your back? That must be rather harsh...

My latest combo I've been using is the 2700 and 1000. However, last battle I put the 1000 down since the weight was getting annoying on my shoulder, people were trying to steal guns others were using, and it's easier to aim and fire the 2700. (I usually shot it from a distance and was going against 2500's and 2000's) Overall, due to the nice power and capacity of the 2700, carrying muiltiple guns doesn't seem to be as necessary and will get heavy. Maybe I'll be carrying the 1000 again once I find a better way to sling it around my back instead of just keeping it on my shoulder.
