Finding the best paintball gun isn’t easy, with so many choices to choose from it can become overwhelming at first. But luckily for you I have compiled a list of reviews of the top 5 paintball markers to make your decision easy. First thing you have to understand is that there are two different playing styles in the world of paintball. You have speedsball which is a fast paced game where you shoot lots of paint really fast and hide behind inflatable bunkers. Then there is also woodsball which just as its sounds is played in the woods. Games are typically long and you usually want a gun with an offset hopper to increase your aim. With speedsball markers you want a hopper that is center fed to make shooting from both sides of the bunker comfortable.
Reviews of the Best Paintball Guns
This list is made up of markers that I use personally and I have used nearly every paintball gun ever made. While I can’t say for sure these are actually the best I know you will not be let down by any of them.
One of my favorite guns of all time is the Tippmann A-5. This gun was designed with the woodsball player in mind and is good for both beginners and professionals. The cool thing about this marker is the cyclone feed which connects the feeder sprocket to the air system to allow you to shoot as fast as you can pull the trigger. This hopper requires no batteries and is very reliable compared to most hoppers on the market today. One of the wonderful aspects of Tippmann is how reliable their products are. They can take a beating and get pretty dirty and still work fine. Any electronic marker would break way before a Tippmann would.
Dye Matrix Rail
Now this is my favorite marker of all time, the Dye Matrix Rail is just in a league of its own. Considered to be the ultimate tactical paintball gun and for good reason. This marker can switch from a magazine fed system to a loader fed system with just a click of a button. The Dye Matrix Rail has three easy to change fire modes (semi, three round burst, full auto) and also comes with picatinny rails and an offset hopper. My favorite feature of this marker is the fact that it can shoot both normal and long distance paintballs. This makes the Dye Matrix Rail the only marker with that capability, and in a woodsball or scenario scene is almost a must have for serious players.
I really don’t have much experience in the speedsball scene but if you are into woodsball then you can’t go wrong with either of these products. If you found another marker that you like just always make sure to read the paintball gun reviews before making a purchase. Hope you enjoyed this article and remember to have fun paintballing!
