CPS Splashzooka 65oz

When it came to making something a bit different in the CPS line, the Splashzooka is it, released in 2001 when things started going down the drain.  Unlike any other blaster part of the CPS line it was the first quick fill only soaker, basically it’s a large CPS chamber that holds around the same amount of water as a 2100.

The Splashzooka looks original too, like a bazooka.  The colours of grey, a bit of black and transparent green go well.  Even though it only has a nozzle at around 2x in size, the shot time of it just never seems to end, so while smaller than most CPS streams since it goes on your opponent will still be soaked after a few seconds of firing, and given the size, the stream packs more of a sting, could be used as a whip, whteesh!  The Splashzooka definitely wins the role of the blaster that constantly needs the toilet.  Range is not bad either.  Filling with the Quick Fill Device (QFD) is quick and easy.  The whole blaster is pretty simple, and is reliable since it is just a large two litre CPS chamber which acts as the reservoir strapped to one simple nozzle and trigger valve in a case.  It feels very robust, so it can take the stress if a user needs to take a chill pill.  If you can’t be bothered to pump then this blaster is right up your street.

The Splashzooka is hindered though still, while it might have the shot time to make people faint, one large blow is the fact that unless you have a QFD and a hose near, this blaster is useless, as that is the only way to pressure it.  Not having this at a water fight is like organising a disco, bringing in the equipment but forgetting the records, completely useless.  Along with that, compared to many other blasters, the stream isn’t all that crazy, it doesn’t really riot out or anything, it’s just a solid stream that lasts ages.  If you want craziness in a blaster this size, the Splashzooka is not it, you’d be better off with a CPS 1000 or similar.  It is also pretty easy to waste all your water quickly, while the nozzle is not as big as a lot of CPS’s, it is easy to get carried away and go empty on a two litre charged reservoir.

The Splashzooka as a whole though is a nice CPS blaster.  It retains that CPS simplicity and also does a good job at being something a bit more different than usual in the line.  It isn’t really in your face when it comes to being pretty mental, however it’ll make your enemies go mental when they try and run from you, which since it fires for ages without pumping, they won’t be able to get away from the stream giving them a thorough covering, quite literally pissing them off.  If you want a light CPS soaker that requires no pumping and long shot times, this is a worthy buy, however if you want something the same size that is heavier hitting, then this probably isn’t for you.  Still, the Splashzooka isn’t a bad blaster and showed Larami, despite starting to decline at the time in terms of great blasters could still deliver some good hits.

Using the CPS Splashzooka 65oz

Most XP’s and below are a good target as well as the smaller CPS’s due to the good shot times and range.  However any larger heavier hitting XP’s and CPS’s will be harder, and remember you only have a limited amount of charged H20 before needing to get back to a fill station.

Against the CPS Splashzooka 65oz

The majority of air pressure blaster users should watch out.  Small CPS’s watch out too, make the user waste their water, and when they run out soak em!  Same applies to anything larger CPS or air.
