What is the recommended operating pressure?

We recommend you set the operating pressure on your DP Fusion at no more than 300 psi, although the ideal pressure is 250 psi. Please refer to the operating instructions for details.

When my marker is engaged in ramping mode, the balls are dropping instead of firing. What is the problem?

Two major possibilities: a) The OPR / regulator may need to be lubed (see last page of the user’s manual for instructions), or b) The battery may be low - replace battery and test fire.

How do I know if the eyes are working?

When the eyes detect a ball in the chamber, the indicator light will turn to solid blue.

When do I need to change batteries?

The indicator light will flash red when it is time to change batteries, or the velocity may drop drastically.

Why is it that no balls were used but the indicator light is solid blue?

Open the left side of the grip frame and make sure that the plug with four wires on it is completely connected. If this does not solve the problem, contact Technical Support (

I notice that I am not able to sustain velocity above 275fps, what is wrong?

There is a leak in pressure, most likely in the OPR. Inspect part #34 and #27 for damage. Rebuild regulator if necessary. Contact Technical Support at

Help, I hear a hissing noise!

The solenoid may be damaged. Although we do not encourage customers to service their own solenoids as it voids warranty, those that are experienced can contact Dangerous Power for a replacement solenoid piston. There are three O-rings located on the piston, and one or more may be damaged. You can also refer to the (link) to view a step by step guide in replacing the solenoid piston.

I’ve been hearing about leaks associated with the regulator. How do I prevent this from happening?

Leaks can generally be prevented by using clean air tanks and avoidance of ‘over pressurizing’ the Fusion. Routinely lubing the OPR with a quality lubricant can also reduce the premature wear of the O-rings, thus preventing air leakage. Please refer to the video section detailing the process of ridding your marker internals of debris, and OPR maintenance.

Why is it important to maintain my air regulator?

Maintenance of your regulator will prevent damage to your solenoid, and insure high efficiency and performance. Remember, most leaks can be traced to dirty air tanks or debris within the internals of the regulator.

The pressure on my gauge slowly rises after each round of fire. The gauge reading creeps past the recommended 300 psi. Is there something wrong?

You are experiencing a ‘regulator creep.’ Do not continue using your Fusion until you have serviced the regulator, or you may damage the solenoid. Usually, part #34 and #27 can be replaced to fix the problem. Contact Technical Support at

I am chopping paint, especially at high rates of fire. What is causing this?

First, be sure that the paint you are using is of high quality, and stored properly. Paint and bore size match is crucial to accuracy and avoiding breakage. Generally, if you cannot ‘blow paint through the barrel,’ the paintball is too large for the barrel. Similarly, if paint ‘rolls out the barrel’ easily, the paintballs are too small for the barrel size.
Second, check both ball detents to be sure they are in place, and not ‘stuck’ within the body. They should freely move back and forth with the pressure of your finger. Remove and clean if necessary. Contact Technical Support if you continue to experience problems.

My Fusion is experiencing slow rate of fire, what can I do?

This is usually caused by low power from your hopper. Replace the battery. If problem persists, contact Technical Support.

What can I do to increase efficiency?

Poor efficiency is usually caused by excessive inline pressure. The ideal pressure is 250 psi, and no more. Clean and perform maintenance of OPR. Paint and bore size match may also be a factor. If you continue to experience poor efficiency, contact Technical Support.

What is the RAPS™ ASA, and what advantages does it offer?

The RAPS™ ASA offers easy on/off and no second guessing whether your air tank is engaged or not.

What does RAPS™ stand for?

Rapid Air Pressurizing System.

My local pro shop carries the Fusion, but does not have the RAPS™. Where can I order one?

The RAPS™ can be requested from any dealer that carries the Fusion™ paintball marker.

How long are Dangerous Power products warranted for?

All Dangerous Power products carry a minimum of one (1) year from the date of purchase.

What is covered under warranty?

Generally, Dangerous Power covers its products from any defects from manufacturing and malfunctions occurring from normal use. Warranties are voided when signs of tampering of product are evident, or products are damaged by unauthorized repair. However, the Dangerous Power Customer Service department will evaluate each case individually.

What is the operation of the Fusion?

The Fusion is spring returned/assisted, also known as FASOR(forward air spring operated return). This means that instead of air solely returning the ram, a spring returns it along with air. Other guns such as the Rex R3, Wrath, Wrath LTD, ICD BKO, AR-1, and Infinity Legend use this mode of operation.

Can I use CO2 in the Fusion?

If you can, try to avoid it in any way. Even with an anti-siphoned tank, its still not recommended. Get an HPA/compressed air tank if you can, if not then get an anti-siphon for the CO2 tank and a Palmer's Male or Female Stabilizer.

What are the differences between the Fusion and Fusion LE?

-Different trigger
-Different accents
-Different color anno
-Different ASA
-Different board(has V2)

Is the Fusion LE worth getting over the Fusion?

Its up to you to decide. Are the upgrades worth the extra $75?

Does the Fusion come with an ASA or macroline?

Yes it comes with 1 piece of macroline and a stock on/off ASA.

How do I know what pressure settings to put my Fusion on?

Use this same method.

What kind of trigger system does the Fusion use?

It is optical, like the Ego or E-Blade. It can be adjusted by the two screws above the left hand grip.

Where can I get the Fusion? le

What kind of tank can I use on the Fusion?

You can use any high pressure or low pressure tank that has an output pressure of at least 200 psi or higher.

What aftermarket parts are available for the Fusion?

Scenario Dreams, and dare I say it Virtue ,is coming out with some aftermarket boards for the Fusion, however there is already the V2 board available. Any standard threaded regulator is compatible with the Fusion. Any Autococker/Timmy threaded barrels, and DM threaded feednecks are compatible. The Fusion will accept only special triggers and grips made specially for the Fusion.

What should I get, the Fusion, Rail, Epiphany, or Mini?

We are getting some vs. stickys up sometime soon, I'll link them here once they are finished.

Fusion vs. Rail.

Is Hybrid going to be making a Fusion?

Yes, the Hybrid Fusion. Costs $425.

Upgrades over normal Fusions are:
Custom milling
Hybrid jewels on body
Hybrid Headlock Feedneck
Hybrid on/off ASA and rail
Hybrid grips

Does the Fusion come stock with RAPS?

No, if you want the RAPS you have to get the Fusion LE or buy it separately.
