I have established favorites based on a wide variety of factors:
1. CPS 1200. One of the best in its class, and holds its own against big CPS. Readily obtainable at very affordable prices. Has more endurance than the 1000 and 2100 in terms of water storage and usage. When I have one tuned with an MK1 pc, getting that 44ft range with or almost with 1:1 shots to pumps, it's a beast. 1200s are just so versatile, you can attack and push, you can brick people in defense, it's small and light enough for fast action, has enough output and shot time for soakfests, is easy to mod and maintain.
2. CPS 2000 mk2. I still prefer it over the Mk1. More shots, have never had one rupture. 2000s are very well matched to my default overall playstyle of low volume shooting in defense and brief, but intense attack. 2000s rack up hits faster than anything racks up hits, if you know how to use one optimally.
3. XP 150. Mah baby...I love mah baby. Anyone can use a 1200 or 2000 well, but do you know what you can do with a 150? If the conditions are right, you can ATTACK AND PUSH AND ATTACK AND PUSH AND ATTACK AND PUSH AND ATTACK AND PUSH, the thing is practically unstoppable if you can keep shooting and pushing. I don't even utilize this to its full potential due to the reservoir being so small and annoying to refill. If I had a much larger reservoir and drilled the nozzle a bit, the thing would be such a tank....pun intended?
