Uses up a LOT of paintballs if you only go full-auto.
I started playing paintball a year ago, and the best marker I had used was my trusty Triad. I had used a Talon Ghost and a Rebel, but my Triad was the best I'd used. Needless to say, when paintball became a more popular sport, and I became a more prominent player in the area, I decided that I needed a respectable marker. The people I've played against so far have markers ranging from Eradicators to Spyder Rodeos to Tippmanns. They all think my Triad is good. But I wanted something Great. I surfed the web, and stumbled across this marker, the ACI Assassin. I found a site that sells it for $170, and decided that this was a good deal. I bought a Ricochet AK hopper and some other gear and stuff for $340. This whole job left me with no money but an excellent marker. I tested it out a few days before playing. I had told my friends all about getting this marker before I actually got it, and they told all the other paintballers and hyped it up and such. I really hoped that my Assassin would live up to expectations. I wasn't disappointed. This marker is AWESOME. When I tested it, my dad was laughing at the sheer thought of the looks on people's faces when I opened up with full-auto on them. This marker is, hands-down, the MAN.
I play woodsball, and this marker is really good for that kind of paintballing. Its dark coloration allow it to remain somewhat discreet, rather than the blatantly noticeable Speedball, high-end Electronic markers. The first time I used this marker, I played 2 on 2 woodsball, and ended up with 6 eliminations. The opposition didn't even last long enough to hit me ONCE. They were AFRAID of my Assassin. They told me and my teammate later how they had seen me, but didn't want to risk charging because I would mow them down. X D I managed to get one of the opposition screaming for mercy when I laid down full-auto fire and that unfortunate person was protected by a small tree. The last elimination I got was when I used 3-round burst mode and hit him 20 times. Unfortunately for him, I hadn't heard him say he was out because of the combined sounds of my electronic hopper and the shooting of 3 markers.
This marker ROCKED. I wiped out the enemy team with ease, without getting hit at all. That was the best game I've ever played in, folks.
Only 3 problems occurred.
1- Chopped a couple paintballs using Full-Auto, but, hey, it happens
2- Not used to having a reflexive trigger, I accidentally fired off a couple rounds by just touching it while waiting for enemy contact. Just takes getting used to, I guess.
3- This marker looks so cool that I don't want to risk scratching it
Awesome awesome awesome marker. Well worth an empty wallet. These paintballers now fear and respect me 'cause I've got my Assassin. Not that I'm not skilled or anything, but it helps to have a wicked gun in your hands when facing people who are only used to lower-end markers and don't even want to face that kind of thing. Also, people tend to take you more seriously when you've got a better marker.
And as far as I'm concerned, it doesn't get better than the ACI Assassin
Can you say Noob...tisk...tisk..man you don't even sound good....full auto?...please its illegal plus the Triad sucks...and even if your pretty good...I don't really respect the fact that you have to brag about it on a review...Basically you're just a waste of time to these younger players...Though I am not saying I am better than you, you need to stop saying you're amazing....
hey going8 i would say none of those are good unless you just want a electric marker (u know) but it just depends on the amnt of money u have. man i just bought an odyssey rpm and it rips only for 180 bucks. its ramped at 11, 13 and 15.4bps and its semi is capped at 19bps so look around some more but if those are what you really want i would say get the misfit, then the assassin and last the vexor. good luck
I think this is a great gun for someone like me who isn't hardcore and just wants to play for fun once and a while with friends. I used the full auto ONCE, and that was in a woodsball game with four of my friends. I'm a noob 'cause I was bragging? I'm sorry that I was pumped about this gun, I just wanted to point out how awesome it was to use it.
