Does not come out of clothing very well, inaccurate
I will not buy them ever again ruines fuzzys and break alot in the gun. They are an oil based paint and it stays sticky for months. even the trees grass and my foam deer are still covered in paint the rain does not wash it off anything. And if you dont clean your gun that day your gun will get sticky.
THEY SUCK they go every where and dont come out of clothing

This paint is actually pretty good for the price. I thought it was going to suck because of it being made by BE, but they actually work pretty well for Wal-Mart bargain balls ($30-ish).
They're pretty firm, so they won't turn to soup in your hopper, but they're still brittle enough to break on target most of the time.
They leave a big bright orange splat when they break, so you know when you hit someone or if you got hit yourself. I just wish that they came in more colors so we could figure out who got who from the color of the hit.
These measured at about a .684 for me, so I underbored to .682 with my Kaners and I was able to hit a rock about the size of my fist from almost 10 yards away with my first shot! Not entirely sure if it was because of this specific kind of paint but I'll still mention it in this review.
Now onto the not-so-good, This paint smells BAD. Be sure to breathe through your mouth when loading with these guys. Also, they don't seem to age all that well. When I first bought these, I could throw them on the tile floor in my house and they would break on contact. About a month later, I did the same test with the other bag in the case and the paint bounced off the tile, bounced off the ceiling and into my hand without so much as a dimple. I just threw them into the fridge for a few hours and they seemed to work fine then. I don't think I stored them wrong (room temp in a closet, minimum humdity, bag was unopened), so I don't think this was due to human error). Also, after a day of play, I took off my BDUs and threw them in the wash. When I pulled them out, the spots where I got hit were now a orange powdery splotch, I threw it in the wash again but it remained the same.
Overall, this is a good Rec and woodsball paint. For the price and availability, you can't go wrong

Dont break in barrell
Sometimes dosent break on contact
I bought these at wallmart because i needed a box for the next day. these ended up being a realy good choice and am deffinatly buying them again. they are verry concistant and and very cheap. they also have very visible color. the only problem is that some didnt break on contack but the next one would.
It doesn't matter. They'll all be broken out of the box anyway.
Everything about them!
Brought them home from Walmart, opened the box, and saw some bits of green shell in a bag of disgusting smelling orange glop. I thought maybe the store had just been roughy on this box so I cleaned a few up with some paper towels and found that more than half the balls in the box were broken. If they weren't broken already, the would break from the slightest pressure. Once I got a small handful af cleaned whole balls, I shot them through my a5. They broke all over the hopper let alone the barrel to the point of calling my gun a squirtgun! They smell absolutely nasty and are IMPOSIBLE to clean off of anything! They stain clothes, rocks, trees...yuck.
I thought maybe it was just my box, so I went back and opened some of the boxes in the store...every box was soup. My friend bought some a month later And we had the same problem.
I buy Flash paintballs from Scheels for the same price, ($30) and they never break, fly great and straight, and clean up like a dream.
I cannot stress enough how terrible these are. I would give these a negative 5 if I could.
bright orange fill
shape is decent,
CHEAP $25 bux at Walmart
like mentioned before:
smells REALLY BAD !!
oil based, hard to wash
I know what you guys think: he's shooting a Droid and Etek 2, why the hell he's shooting a BE bargain brand paintballs???
Well, i bought is just to shoot in my backyard, mainly for testing effiiciency and tuning my gun. When i first opened the box, holy crap, this thing smells bad. But It breaks from knee high, so it's actually pretty good. There;s not much oil residue in the bag unlike most paintballs. The shape is more uniformed than Cryptic.
I shot with my Droid and Etek2, with the later having a higher shooting pressure. I tested both with my vlocity and 4 barrels, Stiffi .689, lucky .689, shaft 2 .693 and matchstick .689. No breaks in gun or barrel suring testing. Distance from gun to target probably about 18 yds
I shot a pod from the droid and the rest with the etek2. I did some slow fire and rapid fire (2 finger walking on semi uncapped) and found out that they are pretty accurate. not the best but should i go to a field with this brand, I'd have no problem. I won't share them with anyone else though because i don't wanna be shot with this paintballs. WHY?? It is oil based. It doesn't come off with water. I have some spaltter on my fence and even after hosing it with high pressure, it wouldn't come off. Almost got into trouble with the wife because of this.
Overall i'd buy this because of the price (25 bux) and its brittleness. But i probably wouldn't take it into airball fields as they are tough to wash out. I'd definitely take it to regular hard bunkers and wood fields. And yeah, i will not share this with anyone unless they're on my team.
