Upgrades:
I would say change that STO 3way. Its not bad as is, but I say something shorter and faster would kick ass even more!
Strengths: VERY VERY cheap gun and SO good for what you pay.
Weaknesses: STO 3-way good enough for this setup
Review: VERY VERY cheap gun and SO good for what you pay. Shoots faster and quieter then my DYE UltraLite. Not to mention it doesnt hog air as bad as the DYE too. If only the 3-way wasnt an STO. Once again, great 3-way, but this gun needs something with more zing. Id say a BELSALES 3-way or maybe an Orracle Tickler. Just look at the above. i pretty much explained it all.
Conclusion: BUY THIS! You probably wont find a deal this good out there. Something similar in the same price range I can only think of is... that WGP OUTKAST. Look and compare the parts, this baby has it all and better!!!

Upgrades:
Absolutely nothing. This marker is excellent stock, although I'd reccomend changing the HPR if you plan on running CO2.
Strengths: Review body.
Weaknesses: Review body.
Review: Okay, I've owned my darkside blackout since christmas. Wow. I absolutely love the thing. I'll list some of the strengths and weaknesses...

Strengths
-Feels great to hold (If you like the feel of a cocker, that is)
-Comes stock absolutely tricked out (Literally no need for upgrades)
-Shoots smoothly (Little to no kick, very accurate with the stock bigshot)
-Very efficient (When set up properly, that is)
-Great value
-The wonderful back block
-Very well balanced with the right drop forward
-Looks great.
-Very reliable when properly maintained (Feed your cocker)
-Great company, very friendly customer service
-Very customizeable if you want

Weaknesses
-Can be terribly unreliable when poorly maintained. (Feed your cocker)
-A bit on the heavy side.
-Only comes in black
-can't run CO2 right out of the box
-Can't get a great hold on the stock gladiator regulator
-Factory trigger job leaves much to be desired.

A little story... When I got mine, it kept leaking out of the 3-way. I'd tried nearly everything to fix it, and finally, thanks to the WGP forum's helpful posters, I'd figured out that the trigger job performed by darkside had made the pull too short. Just a little thing to watch out for. My only qualms are very superficial, and can easily be solved. I love nearly every aspect of this marker. It shoots absolutely wonderfully, comes stock with everything you'll ever want to upgrade, and has a great company backing it. They were very nice and answered all my questions.
Conclusion: This is an excellent autococker. It's a great value, has great parts, and a great staff backing it up. I'd reccomend it to any paintballer looking to get seriously into the sport. The only problems can easily be solved by any player with experienced fixing an autococker. I give it a 9 simply because of the superficial crap, and the fact that nothing is perfect.
