Paintball
Experience:
3 months
Similar
Products Used:
Rental gun of some sort. The kind at Sergeant Splatter's, I have no idea what make they are.
Marker Setup: Brass Eagle Eradicator (Marauder) w/ laser sight. All stock. It's so bad though, I have to use rental guns.
Recommended
Upgrades:
None. It's bad enough I spent money on this marker, I'm not throwing out more of my hard earned bucks on this thing.
Strengths: What's good about this? Well, visually, it's not a bad looking gun. To the untrained eye of the unexperienced player, it is fairly aesthetically pleasing. But that's about it.

A funny (and sad) quirk of this gun is that it actually fires more accurately and chops less balls when the stock barrel is off! That's right! If you actually have to play with this thing, leave your barrel at home. Try explaining to the guys why you can't use a barrel plug :)
Weaknesses: The bad, unfortunately, outweighs the good. It's a piece of snit. But I bought it when I was total n00b, so I didn't know any better. It's faithful to its builder, Brass Eagle, since its a total piece of crap and fits alongside nicely with just about everything else Brass Eagle makes.

It was a black day for paintball when Brass Eagle bought out JT. Sigh.

But anyway, back to the gun. Many other reviews have given an indepth analysis of why its bad, so I won't even attempt it. Just know this: Don't FRICKIN' bother.
Conclusion: Considering there are pieces of DYE clothing that are more expensive than this gun, keep that in mind if you decide to buy it. DOWN WITH BRASS EAGLE!

Doesn't sound like this review even reviews the performance of the marker, it just makes fun of the manufacturers name. Whoever fires a marker without a barrel on it does not know how to take care of a paintball marker and would probably find fault in anything except a Angel.

If you bought this when you were a total newbie, then why does it say paintball experience 3 months, and product use less than a month?

Why would you not put upgrades on it if you don't like the performance stock? That's what upgrades are for, if you don't like the performance, you upgrade it.

I have used a Marauder exclusively for about six months now, using a good after-market barrel, and have seen no problems that don't appear with a spyder or 'cocker. OF COURSE fewer breaks occur without a barrel as there are fewer places for a ball to break! Of course the stock barrel sucks, what stock barrel doesn't? And I'll bet you own some of that $50+ DYE clothing. The Marauder is the best new marker for the money and can keep up with markers three times as expensive. If you could leave biased opinions of BE aside and look at the gun on its own merit, you would see the potential it really has.
