The Marauder sets the standard for value priced, polymer, semi-automatic markers with features that include a one step quick pull field strip pin for easy maintenance, metal internals, self-cocking velocity adjustment, right hand feed, custom designed trigger guard, double finger trigger, newly redesigned side cocking knob, and bottom line adaptor.
The Brass Eagle Marauder is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Inaccurate, chops balls like mad. Slow rate of fire about a max of 2-3 balls a second without any breaks. Heavy for being all plastic.
At first I thought this was a decent marker. It performs ok in woodball with 5 friends. The second I took it to an actuall field. The higher demands on it caused it to chop balls and curve. Get this gun only if you don't play to often and are only planning on going with your friends in the woods or something otherwise it will just frustrate you.
21" CMI thunder pig barrel - will NOT break another ball!
Good gun for the price.
Easy to field strip.
nice double trigger.
bottomline already on it.
polymer (not as bad as it sounds, though)
stock barrel doesn't do it justice
If you buy a long, and I mean LONG barrel for it (21"!!!) it seriously will not break balls at all. I don't know why, but it is fantastic with a 21 inch thunder pig CMI. It's very accurate, and the velocity isn't half bad. I could compete with almost anyone out there with this set up. If you want a gun, and don't want to spend a fortune, get this gun!

Spyder E-99(Black, w/ 32 Degress Ice Cold Barrel. A 12v Revvy, and a V-Force Shield Mask.
New grip, new barrel
Well the good is it's a cheap pruduct and great for anyone new to the sport who just wants to play with their friends, who also have...below average guns.
But it makes a great backup, and it's umm cheap.
Well everything usually found wrong in brass eagle guns. I don't want to sit here and point at the bad. Take too long.
In conlusion....if your new, or if you just need a backup for those peskie times when your cought out of ammo when your one on one with someone, this is a great gun!
Spyder Flash LCD, 14" barrel, 20oz CO2 tank w/ remote, 12v viewloader hopper
new barrel (if you can find one that will fit)
-it's a cheap gun that can hold it's own
-does shoot fairly straight up to 30 yards
-will hold a laser sight (i have one on mine, it's great when your bunkered)
-will hold CO2 tanks
-shoots fast enough to make someone nervous
- easy adjustment/cleaning
- breaks balls like it's no one's business (about 1 every ten shots)
- make out of plastic, not very durable
- when shooting long distance, good luck!
- very loud when it's fired
For a brass eagle gun it is pretty good. Besides the fact that it breaks balls all the time, and will give you away if your trying to flank your opponent, the marauder is a very good learning tool for beginners. I know because I am still somewhat of a beginner, this gun has helped me learn the game without buying a nice 200-300 dollar gun. Hell, i've even been complemented on the field for playin with such dirt cheap weaponry.
Price. I got it for my son because he is only 7, it was much lighter than my PG-1 or VM. I did like the design idea but....
I purchased it for my son with low expectations to begin with. He had been using a PG-1 that I got and modified to make it lighter, but it was still too much for him to carry. We walk sometimes 2 miles roundtrip just to play in a good spot. It met the price and weight criteria, but I only expected it to last a few months. It did not make it through 1 day before it began rapid firing and eating balls like cookie monster at the chips ahoy factory. It was very upsetting. I will be destroying this gun in creative ways and posting the pics of it's undoing on my site.
I seriously am disapointed. Begining with a hope that it will only go a few months, I was let down at with only that. Now I have been playing a long time, with every type of design ever made, and it is very sad that my Splatmaster outperformed this. I try my best to give every gun I try the benefit of the doubt, but this one deserves no more than a one. I would have given this a higher score if the thing had only lasted a few months. But alas, BE is just making a $5 product and peddling it for $50. I am sad. I should have known better.
i use the marauder-with 24oz co2,200 VL hopper, new 16" terminator titanium barrel (very expensive)$$$,
I recommend getting a new barrel, maybe (if you want) a new co2 tank, and that is pretty much it, besides all the basic upgrades like: elbow, hopper, paint job, and new spring
the good things about this product is: light weight, fully affordable, good for newbies(and for experts if you put time and money into it), pretty good stock barrel (i would still upgrade if you were me), good double finger trigger, and it is hard to put strain on your wrists if you hold the gun the right way.
the bad things about this product are: the elbow is not to good,i say that because you can not see if any balls are stuck or just not feeding
My conclusion on this product is: get a new barrel, new elbow, maybe a new co2 tank, and maybe a new 9v (nine volt) hopper.
The barrel if you want to increase accuracy and less noise.
-nice and light
-double trigger, easy to pull
-quick strip pins for easy maintainence
-pretty good stock barrel
-uses spyder threads so there is a lot of choices for barrels.
-I heard it can break easier because its plastic but mines in perfect condition
-Barrel has to be washed really good, dirt will cause paintballs to break(not like its hard to wash it though)
Overall a great product for the beginner/average player.
Get a better barrel if you want to increase overall effectiveness.
A red dot site really helps as I rely on one and they win me games easily. If I become the dominant player, then it is easy to take someone out with this.
Automag 68 classic, 88 ci 3000 psi nitro duck tank, 14" J&j creamic barrel, gadget foregrip, and benchmark drop foward
a new barrel
it's a very inexpensive marker which is great for a new player or someone who dosen't play too often.
it has spyder threads so there are alot of barrel choices out there i used a 14" razor barrel which is an awesome barrel.
will shoot any kind of paint which come in handy for people who don't have alot of money to spend on paintballs.
there isn't really anything bad about this marker
can't say it broke paint after three hours of play only broke one ball
it is very loud even when shooting slow when shooting fast everybody within a hundred yards or so will be able to pin point your exact location
for about 50 bucks it is a good value. some people don't lke the way it looks but hey who cares what i looks like as long as it works. if your are sitting around being bored take te barrel off and shoot it this is one of the few guns that will shoot a ball fairly well without a barrel.
