The premier marker in paintball! Designed and built by Bob Long, a legend in the sport of competitive paintball. He sets strict build standards to insure the Empire Intimidator is one of the fastest and most accurate markers in the game. Extruded aircraft-grade aluminum bodies keep the Intimidator light and streamlined. Some of the most highly advanced circuit boards and sealed memory chips make up the Intimidator's internals, combined with a friction reducing micro switch trigger system, this marker is capable of over 20 BPS.
* Used by Bob Long's Oakland Assassins/Oakland Empire!
* 1.5" shorter than the Intimidator Alias Marker and other 2005 models
* 1.6 pounds (without a reg or barrel) which is 8 ounces lighter than the Alias
* FASTER - shorter bolt length has improved cycle time
* Completely new Ram and Poppet system - allows marker to operate at even lower pressures, virtually eliminating kick by using less force to move the ball. Lower pressure and lighter ram.
* New look to the LPR system
* Completely new ram bumper system. Ram cap now encloses the sleeve by threading onto it, verses into it like before
* Grip features an integrated rail system
* Accepts the same board and solenoid as existing intimidators
* Added functions on the LCD, including the option to modify your ramp starts and caps and multiple modes to meet various league standards
* Custom 14 inch barrel insures marksman's accuracy
The Bob Long Empire Intimidator 2006 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

just about eberything out there i've shot this is by far one of the best

you dont really need to upgrade anything i have a techna on it because i love techna's and i just like the way my cp barrel shots so i use that but really it's all personal preference
Easy to maintain and clean
did i mention fast and light
Nothing besides the fact everyone wants to shot it and the whole poppet thing
ok so i got this gun christmas ( i payed for 3/4s my parents payed the rest)
when i first took it out of the box i was like OMFG this thing is light ( and sexy) then i threw on my rail and on/off and went outside to shot it ball on top off ball accuracy , and i could hit 15 bps on semi easily with out trying which is an extremely big accomplishment for me cause i have slow fingers, the next weekend i took it out to play for the first time i got there and everyone was asking me if they could hold it and shot it which was sort of upseting my friend because he had just got a new EGO and it was getting over shadowed by my empire 2. at the chrono it was +/- 3fps . when i actually went and played a game a was amazed by how comfortable it felt and how easy i could move it around . then when i decided to play back i was picking people off break with the stock barrel ( i didnt really pay much attention to air efficiency sorry i will update it later when i test that part out) then soon after going out and playing with it i got my techna in that i pre ordered so i would get it around the same time i got my gun. and i also picked up a cp barrel ( this made better performance techna adding 2 bps )
only problem i had with this gun is that my third time plating with it it started having terrible drop off and the veloecity wouldnt go above 230 i asked some questions to people who know more about guns then me and i found out the poppet was the problem so i just had toi replace that but other then that little thing this gun was perfect
This is by far the best gun i have ever owned/shot and won't be selling it for a while this gun deserves more then a 10 o ut of 10 because it is just that good
if you have the money for it i would definately throw down the cash and get it
Got this after a turney for 500. for the first month EVERYTHING broke. I had to replace the board, poppet, valve cap, noid, hoses, eyes, and battery harness. none of it was my fault except for the eyes. When it shoots, it has a fairly flat trajectory and is VERY fast. it is fairly constant, but not as much as i would want to. it is just EXTREMELY complicated to take apart and maintain, and its very ridiculous to have to take the entire gun apart to get to the o ring that comes off the most.
Deff not worth the money. But when it shoots, its amazing.

Nothing that I have found yet.
I bought this marker from Badlands in Winnipeg, and I have shot about 6,000 rounds which isnt much, but so far I has been flawless right out of the box. This gun only uses 60-70 psi setting, this allowes me to get about 1300 shots on my 68/4500.
I am new to the sport, and I dont actually know what brands are good and bad, but I love the game now and hope to learn more about every part of the sport.
My first impressions of this gun were fast comfortable. this is my friends gun its fast accurate he has a stiffi on it shoot sweet loved it if i had the money i would buy it. but ya some of us arrent rich little noobs. Im on a very tight budget
All in all a decent marker, but i just wouldnt pick one up. i prefer the dm6 and ego6 to this easily. They havent changed much since 2k2 and shoots very similar, not 1000 better. Good, but not worth the price. but if your a gun whore that keeps guns for a week, try this out, it affects people differantly
Decent product, not the best on the market. bad value
