*bump*

It's really cool seeing people get some of the guns they already like to use a lot. There are some others on here that y'all should try.

If we're allowed to cheat on soakage like some have, please redistribute those 10 points I assigned to it - they can all go to range.

You got some really interesting results, some of which make sense, some of which, well I think you should try fighting with them. One qualification about the XP Pool Pumper Blaster is that it has a rating of 100 for capacity because this is assuming you are either using a pool, or more likely a 3L or larger backpack along with the 2.5x nozzle. Of course, if you're using a smaller sized backpack, it wouldn't place so high for some people, like the 300 would be first for Ben's results. Of course, this is all in fun, and just a way of seeing if what we use lines up with what we think we value most. Also a way of seeing if there's some guns we've been ignoring that may be a good choice for us to check out.

Kind of funny the way this works out but wow

The Oncoming Storm
#1 SS 300 (mine needs major repairs)
#2 SC Power Pak (I already wanted one)
#3 Lightning (Waiting on this from M4)
#4 XP 250 (Just needs a spring for the indexing to work)
#5 Splashzooka (Already wanted this thing two)
If you ever bother reading these, I worry for your mental sanity. :oo:

It's interesting that the Zooka is still high on my list. It may have great RoF, good field life, good performance stats, and be virtually indestructible, but it requires a pressurized water source to fill. At a typical community war, it would need to be filled way in advance and at most venues would be one and done. The Power Pak has the same problem, plus the stream is actually *too* well laminated. It gets decent range, but lacks the oooomph throw of other CPS. The stream is fountained rather than tossed, it's kind of difficult to explain.

Still have never used a 600 and want to. I had an opportunity to buy an MK2 from a nerfer, but that fell through.
