Choosing A Paintball Marker by Ashu1: 7:40am On Dec 28, 2021
Today, I’m going to talk about the most valuable paintball equipment to a paintball baller, this is the paintball marker. Paintball markers are the tools used by the players to hit each other: but unlike real guns or toy guns, paintball guns make use of paint balls.

These are small balls are known as “gelatin capsules” that contain paint. So it won’t kill you if you get shot by one.


To have “safe” paintball equipment, paintball markers are regulated so that the speed of the paintball won’t seriously hurt you or an opponent. This means that in order to avoid serious injury or problems, paintball markers should fire a paintball at an average speed of 300 feet (or lower) per second.

At this rate of speed, serious injuries will reduce or be avoided. Too much speed on paintball markers and paintballs can cause injuries to the eyes, ears, or the one I hate the most the neck. Even with the use of safety it is still absolutely necessary for the players to wear mask or any “head protection”.

NOW on to the good stuff choosing the right paintball marker for the player, it is important to consider the level of expertise of the player. If the player is a newbie, it is important to use a paintball marker fit for basic operations; then as the player advances in his skills he can choose markers that are appropriate for higher level of action.

If you are just staring out in speedball, you might just want to go with a cheaper electronically gun like a smart parts ion, invert mini, or maybe even a proto matrix rail (PMR). These are some of the basic markers that newbies purchase.

Now, if you’re a serious player and have a little bit more money on the side, and want to buy a high-end marker. Then Eclipse egos, Proto matrix, Bob Long, or even DLX technology. Really it just depends on what your personally taste is.

It is also important to consider the kind of position the player performs in the game. For instance, front line players should use paintball markers that have a smaller tank. This makes the markers lighter so they increase the player’s pace in the game.

If you’re a mid or back you might need a marker that has a long and accurate barrel since, you will being spraying a lot of paint to your opponents to keep them bunkered down.

The main thing in paintball is too have fun. Yes, ss3svc64.exe on startup I know it gets intense sometimes when you’re playing, but just remember it’s just a game.

Also the marker doesn’t make the player, if you go out and buy a DLX LUXE for around $1500 it won’t make you play better; you have to have some skill to play paintball.
