iS SuperSoaker cps1000_01tbThe Super Soaker CPS 1000 is a potent, mid-sized water blaster, providing excellent water power for its relatively small size (especially when compared to blasters like the Super Soaker Monster XL). The general construction of the CPS 1000 is strong, able to take a good deal of punishment without fear of breaking the blaster. For ease of carrying and filling, the CPS 1000 has both a shoulder strap and a built-in handle. The reservoir cap easily screws on and off. As well, it has an attached tether/anchor to prevent its loss. Its 5x-rated aperture unleashes a powerful, long-range stream from its mid-sized CPS pressure chamber. Pumping up the firing chamber does take a fair number of pumps to fill, but the blaster is operational after only a few. This, together with its 2.3L water reservoir, makes the CPS 1000 a formidable weapon on the water war front.

The Super Soaker CPS 1000 is a great all-purpose blaster, perfect for use as a primary blaster. It can also be used as a "heavier"-type backup weapon if one is using a larger CPS model as a main weapon.


Mid-sized, light, easy to carry especially thanks to its shoulder strap. For its size, it packs excellent power and stream size. It also does not take too much effort to pump up the firing chamber.


As with most of the CPS line, one can quickly empty the tank if being a little overzealous with the trigger. One thing to be careful of is the pumping mechanism which extends from the front of the blaster. This pump, though it appears to be fairly sturdy, should not be left extended for longer periods of time to reduce the chance of falling on it and breaking it, leaving the blaster useless.

The CPS 1000 was released in 1998 part of the legendary CPS line up back then.  I remember this was the first CPS soaker I ever got that introduced me to the sheer power of CPS, although I had a CPS 1-3-5 before it that doesn’t really count since it’s so bad for a CPS soaker.

This soaker has pretty much everything to give your enemies an itchy backside.  It’s got looks, reliability, power, range, soakage and the ability to be very agile because it’s so light holding around 2.3L of water.  The 5x nozzle is a simple no nonsense nozzle that really does the job on opponents, giving a good rioty blast.  The colours of the soaker are also very good and simple being gray, blue and a bit of orange.  It looks like a baby CPS 2000, that’s not a bad thing either.  The CPS 1000 also comes with a strap which is always a plus.  In terms of actual power, there is enough there to make opponents hold back, like a monster retreating back to its cage after being humiliated by a midget, speaking of which it applies the same here, as the CPS 1000 has around the same power as the Monster X and XL.  That’s pretty impressive for a soaker this small and cheap.  The XP 110 is around the same size and has far less power!  Pumping is also pretty quick and easy, it’s like outrunning someone who tries their best but then after a second or two gives up and can’t be bothered anymore.

There are one or two places the 1000 falls down.  One being the fact the pump is not tracked, so if you cross the stupid line too far it will snap and break, making the soaker useless until you repair it.  Because of the explosive power combined with the not small but not big either firing chamber you’ll run out pretty quick if you go a bit too crazy on the trigger.  You’ll get 3 shots per tank and then a bit more, so it’s limited, but again what do you expect from a smaller CPS blaster.

Overall, flaws aside, this is still an amazing soaker.  If you want a simple, light, reliable, yet powerful old CPS soaker that doesn’t cost that much compared to what some blasters are fetching now, then the CPS 1000 is a great choice.  It has pretty much everything you need for a basic soaker without any major problems that bring it down.

Using the CPS 1000

Most air pressure soaker users should be easy, along with all the new crap out at present.  The 1000 is also good against similar sized blasters as well as the underpowered Monster line.  Anything bigger like the 1500 and up you’ll need to start relying on yourself a bit more.  Also watch for the older powerful XP’s.

Against the CPS 1000

Most air pressure soaker users watch out.  Blasters of a similar size like the 1200 and 2100 will be a good match.  Blasters like the 1500 or bigger will be a problem to a 1000 user; however you still need to watch out.

Length: 59cm
Height: 30cm
Width: 11cm
Capacity: 2.4L

PC Capacity: 620ml

Range (/20) score: 16
Range: 43-45 ft.

The range of the CPS 100 is around 43 feet, great against soakers that lack range, to hit them from distances they can't reach, but not good enough for sniping, which is pretty much impossible to do in water warfare anyways, but I digress…

Output/Soakage (/20) score: 16
Output: 173ml/sec
Shot Time: 3 sec

I must say, when I was pondering my selection for first CPS soaker ever, I read that this was power in a small package. I'll admit I was skeptical about this, but when the 1000 came in the mail and I tested it… Whoa! This beast can outsoak every soaker except larger CPSs, Monsters, and homemades/modded guns.

Capacity: (/20) score: 15
Capacity: 2.4L

No comment.

Maneuverability: (/15) score: 15
Length: 59cm

The CPS 1000, as I said before, packs power in a small package, which is why it scores so high here, too. With such a high output, the blaster is remarkably portable, the size of an XP 110. PERFECT AMAZING

Colouring: (/5) score:3
Colours: grey, blue
Detailing: orange

The colours aren't particularly good or bad.

Opinion (/10) score: 9

This is a great soaker. Period.

Other (design, lack of strap, tracked pump, etc.) (/10) score: 9

The CPS 1000 has a strap, a tethered cap, a carrying handle, a simple, and an overall good, comfortable design. All it lacks is a tracked pump, and if it had one, it would be perfect.

OVERALL: 83/100 

The Super Soaker CPS 1000 is perfect if you need a lot of power, and great range, but in a light and portable design. Ideal for long range shooting and medium engagements, the Super Soaker CPS 1000 makes the perfect primary or heavy backup weapon.

Positions: grunt, escort, possibly sniping, if you want

So… In other words… The soaker is good

+Very powerful for it's size
+Excellent stream size and drenching power
+Excellent range for such a blast


-Pump can break if not being careful
-Short shot time

The CPS 1000 is one of the best weapons made by Super Soaker. It is small and is a great offensive and defensive weapon at the same time. The power and stream size is great for soaking someone in one shot and would do great in a battle. When I used it in a battle it really held my enemy back. What also helps is that pumping on it is easy and fast despite the pump not being tracked. This is really the only problem that you have to be careful with on this on this gun as it will break if being used improperly. The short shot time is a bit of a con, but since it is fast and easy to pump it is not too much of a problem. If you see one of these pick it up as they are becoming rare now. Try eBay for one. I recommend this gun

  • Pumps = 26
  • Shot time 5X = 3 seconds
  • Mobility = 10
  • Construction = 7
  • Tank = 2.3L
  • Intimidation = 7
  • Overall Power = 9
  • Soakage = 15
  • Overall score = 72

The CPS 1000 is an excellent soaker for fighters who like to move around, not just because it is small in size and it has a strap, making it possible to carry 2 guns with no problems, but also because it has a power which surpasses the power of the CPS 2100 and the Monster X. The shot of the CPS 1000 is even explosive once you pull the trigger. However, one of the drawbacks of the CPS 1000 is the shorter shot time comprared to other CPS weapons. Also, its construction is very fragile at the pump. In the heat of battle, pumping to wildly can cause the pump to break, so one has to keep a cold head while using the pump. The 5X nozzle will conserve water, but is not
able fight head on against CPS soakers with higher soakage. It is more of a sniping, mobile, untelegraphed weapon and, used as such, will prove to be very helpful in battle. Its mobility and power is its strength. It also has a nice look. The CPS 1000's shape and colour scheme makes it appear like a small CPS 2000. As a side arm, I would recommend a Max-D 6000, Max-D Secret Strike, and a CPS 2100. A CPS 1000 and CPS 2100 would make an excellent team. If you ever see a CPS 1000 at your local store, buy it. It is very rare now since it has been discontinued for over 3 years. And even if it wasn't a rarity, it is still a good soaker to use in battle.

Review By Jean D. | Posted: 20020517

This was one of my favorite soakers. Unfortunately, the pump snapped off so it is no longer of use. It was a great blaster. It combined light weight, a considerable amount of water, and even a strap. The 5x nozzle is a good choice considering the size of the pressure chamber and reservoir. The range is also respectable. Overall, this is a great blaster: small enough for children and still satisfying for adults.
Power: 4.5/5
Weight: 5/5
Capacity: 4.5/5
Overall: 4.75/5
Pros: Good soaking to water amount ratio. Very light and also includes a shoulder strap.
Cons: Fragile pump handle.

Type: CPS
Specification: 1000
Class: Light Cannon
Size: 23 in. x 11 1/4 in.
Weight Empty: 47 oz.
Weight Filled: 114 oz.
Water Capacity: 67 oz.
Pump Stroke: 7 in.
Pressure: 23 p.s.i.
Nozzle: 5x

The CPS-1000 is an excellent Super Soaker. It may seem small, but is indeed very powerful. This is a very versatile water blaster.

The CPS-1000 is the smallest blasterin the CPS line. However, appearances are sometimes deceiving. This little blaster packs a lot of punch. When I first got it, I expected it to be another smaller blaster. When I filled it up though, I was surprised at the power. So was my unfortunate friend who fought me with my XP-110.

This blaster is small and light which makes it easy to run or climb with. The shoulder strap makes it easy to carry.

The CPS-1000 blows out a 5x rated blast from its decent sized CPS pressure chamber. Unfortunately, the water supply is limited which means you will be refilling a lot.

PROs: Small, light. Shoulder strap makes it easy to carry. Excellent power for its size.

CONs: Low water supply.
