Hi, my name is Soaker Elite and I have an exciting war story.
Our neighbourhood had just arranged a 40 player water fight. Anyone with a watergun that works was invited. There were four teams: Green, Red, Yellow, and Blue. I was on the Green team. Each team had ten players and the waterfight was supposed to last for 3 hours, non-stop, except for an intermission. All the action was on my street. Green started on the far side of the street, Red was in the middle, Blue was on the other side of the middle, and Yellow was on the other far side. Continue reading War Story
On July 10th, 2001, I had the opportunity to go to a group picnic with people I used to work with. At any rate, it was time for their annual picnic. While working there, I had assisted them in stockpiling a decent armoury of Supersoakers. They had several CPS1000s, one CPS1200, a few SC500s and several XP110s, not to mention a bunch of little mini-soakers. Continue reading Free-for-All Fighting Forms

I am Bravo 1, back from our second camping trip at June Lake. It was probably the toughest battle we ever fought because the people that we fought last year got bigger and brought some more reinforcements. That wasn’t the only bad thing because we had about 250 water balloons that were lost and our MSR was cut off. Continue reading Operation Alpha Strike
Nick = CPS1200
Eric = CPS2700
Eric M = CPS SplashZooka
Ean = XP220 x2
Derek = Monster XL
This is just a listing of some great kills (soaks) I experienced during a seige-style game my friends and I made up on the fly and played at about midnight. We found that playing in the dark was much more fun and no flashlights were needed since the moon, itself, as well as some scattered motion sensor lights in the yard we were in proved to be the perfect amount of light.

One hot day in late May with the temperature looming somewhere around 80F, my sister, Sarah, and I were home alone brooding over something to do. We got our friend, Lee, to come over that evening and while jumping on our trampoline, I snuck inside and grabbed my CPS 1200. I filled it up in the bathtub, came outside and started provoking Sarah and Lee. Lee came in and grabbed my brand-new XP 220 and XP Triple Play and took off outside while Sarah attatched my new two-way fast filler to one of our three hoses and used it as a shower head.

Last week, I was at my friend’s house after school. Out of nowhere, we were drenched by a CPS Splashzooka. We run over to his neighbor’s yard, but it seemed like our water assassin was already gone. A few minutes later, we started to fill up my best friend, the CPS2000, an XXP275, a Triple Charge, and a few dozen water balloons. I started to search my neighbor’s yard carrying the CPS2000 and 2 water balloons. Then, I see the see-through green of a Splashzooka. I charged over there and bombarded my foe with 2 water balloons and a full blast from my CPS2000. My friend came over and told me he saw about 3 kids coming down the street carrying a good amount of artillery. I figured the Splashzooka boy was only a diversion. That’s when it happened. From the top of myneighbor’s roof, I was blasted with a Monster XL. He ran and I screamed for my clothes just got dry again. This meant war. Me and my buddy took the Splashzooka, their balloons and charged directly at the kids walking down the street. A kamikaze mission, but we won. We drenched and they ran back home. Mission Accomplished.

Hi, my name is Al and I would like to tell you about a battle that me and two of my buddies had last week completely out of the blue!
It was a coolish day at our high school. The season hadn’t really started yet and our blasters have been suckin’ dust since September. We were shooting hoops out back when we heard shouting from the other side of the school. We ran around to see what was going down. Continue reading The Unexpected Battle of the Downs!

I am Alpha One. Commander of the Top Secret Water Gun Organiztion called Detachment 101. Each year we battle teens from other campsites (they are always there). We have been doing this for about 3 years and have a lot of experiance. There are 9 of us in the platoon. Each have different special skills such as Close Quarters Combat (CQB) or Demolition. We are all from one Platoon divided into three squads. Alpha Team, Bravo Team, and Charlie Team. Alpha Team is in charge of close quarters combat, Bravo Team is in charge of demolitions and outdoor battling, and Charlie Team is in charge of Artillery and Communiation. This is a pretty long story, but I’m sure it’s worth it. We all have codenames to hide our identity in public waterwars. Continue reading Ambush Alley

The last day of the ren-fest water war was a trip to say the least… About 75 total participants. Since it had to take place after the public had been cleared off the site, it was dark when we got out of our ren garb and into serious soak-battle gear. Several wetsuits were in evidence this year. We told our team to minimize QFD-using soakers this year as that was a serious bottleneck last time. We filled several 68qt marine coolers with ice, topped them with water, and loaded them onto carts to our refill area (we’re MEAN suckers). There were 2 QFD’s for those of us with no alternative. We had 3 people whose sole task was managing the refills (REMF’s?). There were also about 6 dozen 2-liter soda and gatorade bottles placed strategically for emergency refills. Our opponents had two castle towers this year, about 10 feet higher than ground level, complete with crenelation; so they had a defensive advantage; defense is for losers, anyway.
