The CPS 3000 is a Larami Super Soaker that was released in 1998 under the CPS series.


The CPS 3000 is the first CPS series soaker to feature a backpack-type reservoir, in the form of a vinyl backpack with an elastic water bladder inside. The reservoir connects to the main blaster component via a tube with a closeable valve which also acts as a blaster adapter. The adapter functionality of the valve allows the backpack reservoir to act as a mobile filling station for smaller soakers. The tube is about a meter in length, giving the user a great deal of freedom of motion with the blaster. The backpack reservoir also has a zipper on the right-hand side where the tub emerges, so that the user could open the backpack and access the inner compartment to make repairs or patch up leaks if needed.

The CPS 3000 also has a nozzle selector with four different settings: "5x", "10x", "Typhoon" (a triple spread of 5x streams), and "20x". The 5x and 10x settings have an identical aperture to those on the CPS 2500.


It was re-released in 2000 with a new backpack water reservoir as the CPS 3200.

Reloading and firing

To reload, the backpack reservoir must first be filled with water. Afterwards, the user must open the valve connected to the blaster component. They then must pump the blaster approximately twenty-six times to prime it. The user then selects the nozzle setting of their choice on the nozzle selector, before pulling and holding down the trigger to fire a stream of water.
