The Super Soaker CPS3200 is the newer backapack blaster, a virtual re-incarnation of the Super Soaker CPS 3000: the largest overall water weapon.
The CPS 3200 balances the CPS power with a good complement of water, but adds the additional quick-fill ability via a Q.F.D. to the backpack. The backpack is comprised of a solid plastic shell with two caps. Care is needed when filling the backpack while wearing since overflow water fires upwards out of these caps when the backpack is full (a good way to get water down one's back). Attached to backpack is good strength, one metre long tubing, allowing the user a great deal of freedom of motion with the blaster. At the end of the hose is a self-sealing adapter which fits all QFDs. The adapter locks into the CPS 3200 blaster with a half-twist. Unfortunately, the backpacks and blasters of the Super Soaker CPS 3000 and CPS 3200 are not interchangeable.
The blaster itself has four nozzle settings. They are rated as 5x, 10x, Typhoon and 20x. The 5x, 10x and 20x settings are identical to the Super Soaker CPS 2500 in terms of nozzle size. However, the firing chamber of the CPS 3200 holds significantly more water letting one fire continuously with the 5x setting for nearly 8 seconds. The 5x and 10x settings are best to use when conserving water (as if you need to with an 8 L backpack). The 20x is great for thoroughly soaking one's opponent quickly. The Typhoon setting is an interesting, albeit not that useful, setting. At this setting, the CPS 3200 fires out three roughly 5x streams in a spreading pattern from the nozzle. The shoulder strap and built-on handle make the blaster easy to carry and hold. The firing chamber of the CPS 3200 is housed in clear plastic, allowing one to see the CPS system in action.
Overall, a definite improvement on the Super Soaker CPS 3000, the Super Soaker CPS 3200 is the big-tanker of the year 2000 line.
The water supply is large enough to last a good deal of time even in the wildest of squirt-fests. The four nozzles allows one to maximize drenching power, cover a large area or conserve water. Its sheer size also makes one's opponents think thrice before coming within range. The size of the firing chamber lets one unload extreme amounts of water. The backpack can be quickly filled while still wearing it at any QFD attached to a hose.
Heavy on the back! The backpack should have been reinforced better. The Typhoon setting is not that useful. The other problem, though minor, is that the backpack releases overfill water out the top fillcaps when using the QFD. This results in a rather wet back if one is still wearing the backpack.

The CPS 3200 is basically its 3000 predecessor only with a few alterations. Main one which is most noticeable is the now hard rocketman superhero like plastic backpack, and the colour, from whichever way you look at it is cheesy, not that this is necessarily a bad thing, after all the 80’s for many things was a great decade wasn’t it? Well I think it was at least.
The 3200 like the 3000 in terms of actual blaster design is identical, which is great, only with funky colours, being a yellow body with some transparent purple, along with black for the pump and blaster connection piece and the usual orange for the nozzles and trigger. Many people hate the colour but since I’m not picky on this subject I think it looks cool. The power, soakage and range are pretty much the same as its counterpart, along with the way it just works, which is very good. The main difference is the backpack connection is way better and can actually be filled from a Super Soaker Quick Fill Device (QFD). Not only that, because it just slots and then screws into the blaster with a more solidly built connection, it won’t snap and break. Same with the backpack connection, as it is basically a threaded 3/4” fitting that you screw in, so it is secure and won’t fall out. That means compared to a person its kneecaps won’t fall off anymore. You can even connect it to the hose and be invincible, but that’s cheating! The usual ruggedness of the tracked pump and everything is still there, and the plastic 2 gallon backpack solves the worries people may had about the soft 3000 backpack ripping and being unstable. The 3200’s firing chamber is very slightly bigger; however it is not big enough to really see a noticeable difference.
While having the durability issues fixed, another problem has crept into the 3200’s pants, and that the backpack. Sure, it might be more durable; however, being plastic, it is REALLY uncomfortable, especially given how much water it can store. Sure, you can fill it less, however you still have a hard piece of plastic straining your back. I suggest you put the backpack in a soft backpack when using it, or just replace it with a softer one for a light user, it’s much better than laying in a bed made of bricks, unless you like that sort of thing. The 20x nozzle is also a bit temperamental like the 3000. It also takes a while to pump because of the large firing chamber just like on the 3000. Even with a large reservoir supply you still need to be cautious of not using your water up too quick, as one of the advantages the 3200 has like the 3000 is that you can stay out days longer than anyone else. Filling the backpack is also not very comfortable, unless you have it on your back and fill it with the hose using the QFD, but even then when full you’ll get water down your back and look like a rocketman type superhero trying to take off since water will spurt out the two reservoir caps to let you know. Reminds me of that Blastoise Pokémon who blasts water out of its cannon like tubes on both sides of its shell, so you if like Pokémon you can be one.
Even so the CPS 3200 is a great blaster still like the 3000; it gives you more of a chance of getting an all powerful backpacked heavy CPS blaster. While they aren’t the cheapest now, if you are a heavy blaster user, then this is a worthy soaker to get. Only this time you’ll look like a crazy rocketman superhero of some sort.
Using the CPS 3200
Like the 3000 pretty much anything can be taken on. Again just watch out when you are full with water as that’s when other blaster users big or small can take advantage.
Against the CPS 3200
Again every user whether using CPS or air pressure soakers like XP’s take full advantage of the 3200’s weight, pumping and lack of mobility while you still can before it finally comes around.

Tip :Also, if you attach the purple hose to a garden hose instead of the backpack you don't need to pump it! The pump will shoot forward and you'll have a fully pumped gun. Don't bother disconnecting it from the hose until your opponent is out of range!

The CPS 3200 is a large-heavy soaker, released 2000. It is the improved backpack soaker model of the CPS 3000, having a stronger build backpack, longer connection hose and more power. Its specialty is having an 8 Litre backpack and 4 powerfull nozzles. The CPS 3200 is the 3rd most powerful soaker and the most usefull single unit water weapon for any kind of fight, due to its combination of soakage and very large water supply.
- Good power
- High soakge due to 4 nozzles including a 20X nozzle
- Long shot time
- 8 Litre Tank
- A strap, making caring a second soaker easier
- light for its size
- Well built
- Leaks on the hose connection some times

The CPS3200 is the best blaster I have ever used. It has four nozzles: 5x, 10x, 20x, and typhoon blast. Typhoon blast is the least usable one. I rarely use it. The other three all have good uses: 20x for quickly and seriously drenching the enemy, 10x for a good mixture of drenching and conserving, or, the one I use most, 5x, for still good soaking but conserving as well. The backpack is fairly comfortable and only after long wearing with no movement do the straps ever actually begin to hurt. The blaster, itself, has good pumping and water capacity, but could definitely use a more comfortable feel to it like the CPS1700 I compared it to. In a recent water war I had, I was drenching everbody while they slowly refilled. Even when they did get me as Iwas refilling, it didn't take long before I was soaking them right back thanx to the QFD option. It's also good because it's not totally dependent on the QFD. When new, the CPS3200 has a terrible pumping rate, but as it's used, it gets better. Overall, I would give this blaster a 99.99 out of 100 because it only lacks two small things: it takes a good deal of pumping and gets fairly heavy when completely filled.
Pros:huge water capacity, firing rate and amount of water pressurized with each pump increase with use, backpack fairly comfortable,good range
Cons: takes quite a bit of pumping, gets a bit heavy when filled, but really such small price to pay for such good quality, output and capacity

The almighty CPS 3200. I was laughing my head off when I got this blaster @ Metrotown, Burnaby (Vancouver), because I bought it on a band trip, and I was gonna shoot the girls in my band. But anyways, to the review.
The predecessor of this blaster is the CPS 3000 and I'm glad to say that this one is better in every way. The fast fill backpack is a must for any battle and the bigger pressure tank is a great improvement.
The blaster has the same nozzles as the CPS 3000, but the new 2000 line of Super Soakers tend to fire more water at the beginning of the shot, so it will make a loud bang and spray a bit, but it doesn't do anything to performance. The 5x, 10x, and 20x are all useful, but the Typhoon, is kinda useless unless shooting at close range at a group of people. The blaster has excellent output, just 8oz shy of the CPS 3000's 20x nozzle. But this blaster may powerize, as mine is right now. The 20x nozzle used to be 10oz/sec, but it has doubled in output in one day (I like to use my blasters a lot).
The backpack, although kinda space-age and goofy looking, is a LOT more durable than the CPS 3000 backpack and is QFD compatible, which is a major plus in a battle. Yes, you may now RUN with this backpack! I always do and I have won in every water fight that I have been in. The weight isn't really a problem (even though it is the heaviest overall Super Soaker® ) because most of the weight is on the shoulders which is all right if you can handle such weight. DO NOT use this blaster if you pant and wheeze after carrying such weight on your back or you're dead in a water fight.
As for looks, they may look cheesy on a picture, but when you actually see the blaster, it looks pretty kewl.
Overall, I give it 10/10. The perfect blaster for someone who wants to unload a bucket of water on somebody... Plus several more.
POWER TIP: Oh yeah, if you want some fun, take a 3000 and 3200 (3000 backpack in front, 3200 in back, blaster in each hand) and start kickin some butt. It works. all the time for me.
