Alias Intimidator Black To Red
CP Barrel Kit
Crossfire 68/4500 LP Tank
Empire Reloader B
CP Swoop Trigger
Adjustable Ram Cap is a must
Barrel Kit or a good barrel, ultralight, stiffi, ect.
ASA (not really an upgrade, but it makes hopper hits substantially less.)
A good regulator like Cp
These upgrades are just to make sure you get the most out of your gun.
Maybe price, but you get what you pay for.
Manual is a little outdated
Pros: The Alias never lets me down. Not to bash angels, but when I used my angel 4 I was spending more time on the sidelines cleaning my barrel and internals more then playing. Out of a case of marbs I chopped 3 times, I'm not really surprised because that was the first time I used my gun at the field. This gun can go faster than you can pull the trigger, and with the right loader you will be shooting strings of paint out of the gun. This gun is so light, I actually had a guy test out my gun with a full paint and tank. He claims its lighter than his shocker with full setup. This gun has never gone down on me, and so far have not had one problem with it.
The efficiency on it is great, I have not seen one gun out there that can beat it.
Its basically a point and shoot gun, you point at something you want to shoot and watch the paint fly straight at the target.
The Assassin Barrel that comes stock with this gun is very accurate. I've shot many barrels on my alias. The accuracy of the assassin barrel is just the same as the kits, ultralight, etc. The only difference really if you buy a kit for your timmy, is the paint selection, don't think you are gonna get any better accuracy.
Cons: I was a little frustrated at Bob for not upgrading his manuals. The only thing he gives you is a 2002 intimidator manual, stapled together with little black and white pictures of older intimidators. Some of the pictures I cant even make out. If you compare the manual with other guns that are 1000+, you will see that they spent time putting in huge detailed color pictures of the actual gun and it isn't cheaply stapled together. But keep in mind there are plenty of reliable sites out there with good detailed pictures of alias schematics, ect.
*Just a reminder to everyone reading this. Intimidators are obviously high end guns and require high end paint for it to work the way its supposed to. You will see a difference in performance if you use low grade paint. Its worth it to pay the extra 10 dollars to get good paint. Heck, the manual even tells you to use good paint.
If you are deciding between this and a matrix, I would reccomend this. If you have the money go out and buy it.

Angel about the same only heavier, louder, but more accurate
Autococker slower cycle rate about the same accuracy and heavier
ion slower cycle rate less accurate maby a little heavier more chops
mini slower cycle rate a little more accurate, lighter
epiphany same as ion only alot heavier
Bob Long Alias
halo w/ rip drive
pure energy tank
maby a new barrel depending on position see review
a fast hopper
Fast, Light, Price, decent accuracy
Not the best accuracy
This is a great marker that can be found for a good price. My dad got one with some upgrades on eBay for $200 and it is as good as new. When I told my friend with an ion he about crapped himself wishing he would have got one instead of his ion. The gun is one of the fastest guns I have shot constantly people will get mad at me for shooting them and say I was ramping. The gun is very light too it is only a little heavier than the mini. I love the stock barrel it is easy to clean and does great with chops, but it is not the most accurate. If you are a back u would probably want a new barrel (I play snake and don't need a real accurate barrel) so you can capitalize on the other teams mistakes like an elbow sticking out or something like that (or you can do like some people and shoot so much paint you can't miss it). If you play a front you don't really need a new barrel because you are so close to the other team it is hard to miss
This is a really great gun and can be purchased for a great price if you look hard enough.
Black to Blue Fade Alias Intimidator
68 4500 DynaFlow Tank
14" Empire Barrel Kit
Clear Halo B
Halo and an Empire Barrel Kit
Very Fast. Oh so Light. Small Profile.
I have had my Alias for about a month now and let me say this thing is the best gun ever. I have shot all other kinds of guns and this gun by far blows them all away. It has the speed of a Matrix, the accuracy of a cocker, and the weight of an 03 shocker. The first thing I noticed when I picked it up was how light it was. 1.7 pounds to be exact. Let me put it this way my gun with 68 4500 tank and halo weighs less than my friends storm with just tank. The body has been shortened and it is not as tall as the other Timmys. The grip frame has also been moved foward which balances the gun much better. As for firing, well let me put it this way, on my Matrix I used to be able to get 14 if I was lucky. On my Alias I can get 15 without even trying (no bounce). The range and accuracy are fenominal and with my empire barrel kit the pattern is out of control. It is still the real easy gun to breakdown just like all other Timmys and is still super reliable.
For people that say that the only thing different between Timmys is the milling, I have to say that they have never shot an Alias. This is not the cadillac of paintball guns its the Ferrari. This is all around the best gun ever made and I recomend it to anyone who has the dinero to get it.
I've tested most top-end guns around but the few comparable that come to mind are:
Various Electric Autocockers
2k3 cocker , freak, e2, nexus. IM DONE. for now on $ goes to actually playing instead of buying more and more upgrades!
none are necessary.
Head-turner. Weight. Not having to worry about upgrades.
Im not a fan of the trigger. The money aspect.
I'm going to attempt a honest review without being flamed to severely, which apparently is going to be quite difficult due to the overpopulation of tippmann newbs that worship this gun because it cost a lot and some people with jerseys use it. As for this guns looks, IMO, the are top notch only competing with one other, that many other people think are hideous, the dye DM5. The stock barrel was satisfying. I'm not one of those "Freak or Nothing" people when it comes to barrels however you could improve it if you care to do so. I wasn't a huge fan of the trigger. Perhaps I'm only critical because I'm used to the snappy feel of me E2. I'm sure if you buy this gun you will get used to it and/or adjust it and come to love it (I was miserable with my E2's trigger until I personalized it and became used to it). This is a very speedy gun. I was able to walk in semi mode to 15bps (which is what i believe that mode was capped at) and the owner of the gun was shot 17bps (I am not sure which mode he was in). I'm sure we all know the major hangup of this gun. The outrageous price was enough to keep me from getting attached to this gun and IMO it should do the same to you. I was able to get my Autococker for a shade under $1000 and I believe the only thing the Alias has on my gun is weight. The Smart Parts Shocker with vision is only $800! Although I have had major mechanical issues with the Shocker it is still the better buy IMO. If you factor in the upgrades on the Shocker it would bring you in around $1000.
My final recommendation is to decide against buying this gun. The product is great but the price insane. Admit it, there should be a buy one get one free sale on these things.
BTW -the current going price i found was $1,094.50

Had no experience with eye issue but it was brought up by owner
This marker is a sweet marker it really tells you that bob is thinking on ways to still improve on these awsome markers. If you buy this marker plase tell me your not going to be trying to hit people with one shot off in some woodsfield. The markers shoots like most other timmies and as fast as you can go is as fast as that baby will rip.
Well its nice but its a Timmie and the great thing about Timmies is that you can upgrade the boards and essantialy it is all looks. What you have here is a great marker but 33bps no actually I believe it is 25bps or so same as other Timmies but that is not the point. The point is that the Timmies out right now will rip just as hard as this Timmie and it is retailing at $1300. You can pick up an ironmen Timmie for $1200 or some of the other models at $999 or beyond that even $899 for the 2k2.
Bottom line is these markers kick ass and no matter which one you will buy they will rip. While this is a great marker and will make any owner happy it just dosnt step it up enough to justify its price. I have mad respect for all timmies but in my opinion this timmie picks up an 8

Easy to break
I dont like the alias timmy, i think the milling is ugly, like all other timmys, and is very overated. All the timmy owners say that they get up to 30 bps on there timmys, But thats inpossible, bob long even said that it was prenumatically impossible for the timmy to get that high. Any Timmy. They are prenumatically capped at 22. They may go higher but it wolt be a full cycle.
Marq 7 rapper!!! stock with dye rotor and crossfire 68/45
Big thats about it
Love this gun but i had to go with the Marq rapper because i play front ant its a little lighter and smaller then the alias timmy.. This gun is the funnest gun i have ever shot in my life.. Its easy to maintain very accurate fast. This gun rips just being stock.
Tippmann 98 custom, Tippmann A-5, Black Dragun, Autocockers, Bushmasters, and a Angel ir3
i have a blue alias which has a freak barrel kit, 3d flame drop forward, a empire on/off valve, a intimidator mini gauge, a empire fuel 4500 tank low/high pressure, a silver empire reloader b hopper, a empire vegas grip, and a alias superfly bolt.
The freak barrel kit which i bought for $100, the alias super fly bolt which was $60, and the empire on/off valve which was $60.
This product is ultra lite
The manual is horrible
This is a amazing gun and it is perfect for any hardcore paintball players that can afford this gun. I reccomend anyone who buys it should get the alias superfly bolt. I think the barrel shoots too many stray balls to be trusted. So i reccomend you buy a stiffy, Freak, Empire 7 piece barrel kit, or a dye boomstick.
It will help anyone who wants a reliable gun that hasnt broken once on me or any of my friends then this is your gun.
A bob long
Price for the quality
Best Marker i ever shot!
None at all.
I Was at my shop two days ago and i got to shoot some guns. this guy came out and let me shoot his alias which was really nice of him. It was the lightest marker i have ever held much lighter than proto matrix. It was so smooth and so fast. I want one so bad. The Stock trigger is the so nice the trigger pull is so small. THE NICEST MARKER FOR THE PRICE!!
If you have $1200 for a marker Go buy an alias
