Products Used:
Tippmann Squadbuster (it like...doesn't work!)
Marker Setup: WS-66 with Scepter 4000-A
-BSA reddot
-Remoteline to 20oz tank
-Recently aquired COPS vest to use in conjunction with marker/launcher
Strengths: Immense firepower and plain old scaring the enemy!
Looks like a Grenade launcher!
Weaknesses: Time, fast fingers and careful packaging required.
not 100% M203 lookalike
Review: The Launcher is made of aluminum and titanium....there's nothig weak about this beast...but it's not heavy nor bulky.

With this small tube you increase the firepower of not only yourself but the entire squad/team...for $300 its like having a second paintball gun, but it doesnt have to physically hit an enemy to take them out!

This baby packs a whallop and can fire either a suppression blast of 15 paintballs, or a single tube-grenade that will totally drench anything inside a small bunker if you get one in there.

There can be some problems if you are new: installing it onto my WS-66...if you arent careful you can loosen the connector to the adaptor, breaking the seal: this is easily fixed by just locking it back down with your hand....but it's different the first time. making the grenades....give yourself plenty of room...I'd suggest taking the 'nade making gear out to a nice open place in the yard or field, away from stuff you would want to clean, and DO WEAR THE GOGGLES!

if you slip and unleash a grenade....it will send high-pressure goo from the nozzle, which generally would be towards the face(and in my case my gun sitting on the table next to me...and the instructions, and the box it came in, and the everything, and the deck....these nades REALLY put the paint out)...you wear your mask during play, use the same sense while prepping these.

you have to give the valve a STRONG prep-shot...seems like 2x the force you normally use. once this is done, a steady, fash push on the valve will give you a consistent and far shot...after 3-4 uses...it's 2nd nature and not a problem.

But once you get used to this, the nade launcher is literally a BLAST to use!

rating is 9 because it's not 100% lookalike and it takes getting used to. Performance-wise it's a 10 baby!
Conclusion: Basically....maybe not for the total beginner, but an effective tool. It takes getting used to, but its something totally different, why WOULDN'T it?

If you have been looking for that device that just begs for attention, intimidates like nothing else can, and/or need some heavy-duty firepower...the Scepter 4000 launcher beats all other's hands down.

For clarification...this reviewer has designed two closed bolt markers for us, as a volunteer-16 year old kid. We sent him the launcher as a gift, which he did not expect. I advised him to be honest in his review.

Feel free to compare his review, along with the other (biased and non-biased) reviews. The launchers are new to the market, so as more reviews pop up, you can judge how credible they are.

The tippmann nades work fine. all you gotta do is this. take off the mesh. shake the nade for a couple of seconds hard. this increases the pressure. then pull the pin and throw. you take the mesh off so when the paint is coming out it spins around on the ground painting eveything within 15 feet of it.
