The world's biggest water battle

College life is known most for books and partying. But in Irvine, they break world records.

On Tuesday, students at UC Irvine broke the Guinness World Record for the largest-ever water blaster fight.

Exactly 3,875 students took part, breaking the previous record of 2,671 by residents in Valladolid, Spain for a 2007 soaking battle.

Associated Students of UCI spent $12,908.16 at Walmart for 6,000 water guns. The toys will be donated to local charities.

UC Irvine is taking on a history of breaking world records. In 2011 and 2012, the Anteaters claimed the Guinness World Record for the world's largest dodgeball game.

Last year more than 6,000 people took part in the game, which lasted more than two hours.
