W.G.P. trilogy competition with ricochet apache and 9 oz. (soon wgp 50 3000) proto switch
Here's what I would do. First assess yourself. Do you plan on getting a new marker in the next year or two? What marker would that be? If I could do it again I would get first a nice hopper not a revvy quantom (nothing against them)but a halo reloader B egg 2 apache they will work on any gun you get scince I assume your next marker wouldn't be spyder threaded (most mids, high ends are autococker or impulse) I would get an hpa tank that way lets say you want to go pick up an ion. No extra cost!
Price simple good newb gun comes with 9.5 polished stock barrel unlike tippman
Loud plastic feedneck long heavy trigger no fore grip
I bought this as my very first gun back in the day for 55 with a gold card. My first time taking it out before i had ever done anything paintball and didn't even know how to take out the bolt it was easy enough to use that I had no problems going to the arena and trying to compete. it is very self explanatory everything that has to do with using it. One thing I noticed while using it though is it is loud as a cannon but it shoots nicely and actualy quite accurate and consistent one thing to be ware of though is it is very slow shooting has a long long tripper pull that is also quite heavy it works good for someone through their first 6 months to a year I would recomend for gun number 1
great first gun consistent and easy to use dont buy it expecting to shoot fast because it wont happen I'm saying 8 because is a very good beginer gun but has some weaknesses
8 out of 10

-tippmann 98c (with and without flatline)
-tippmann A-5 (with and without flatline)
-autococker(dont remember wat it is called)
just a good 'ol out of the box victor with a 20oz Co2 tank
um well i never upgraded my victor. everything was stock
Perfect for assulting
Range is not as far as other markers
well I love my victor. It is a good and reliable gun and i got it for $50 when I was a paintball noob. I will never regret getting it. It has saved me many times. this marker is perfect for assulting people. its easy to move around, it doesnt weigh alot, and it is very accurate. I used my victor for a year with a stock barrel and it was VERY accurate. Of course you will have to arc the paintballs to hit people far away, but every marker has to do that with the exception of flatlines. I have used about 3 or four different victors with stock barrels and they all seemed to shoot accuratly. The victor is easy to field strip but the pin that keeps the little bolt from falling off might come off if you dont make sure its in place. The only complaint I had about the victor is that with my 20oz, whenever it only had 300-400 shots left (out of 1000 or so), the velocity would drop drasticly. This happens with all markers, but it seemed to do have a bigger drop rate than my 98c and my friends A-5 (i'm gonna buy one with a flatline cuz i personally despise arcing balls). If you hate arcing balls, which every gun but a flatline does, than you shouldnt get a victor, but instead get a 98c or A-5 with a flatline and n2 tank (make sure to keep your velocity between 270-290 if you do this or else the balls will curve)
If you want a good reliable gun for assulting people than get the victor (and maybe an electro hopper and electro grip if u wanna shoot fast in cqb). If you want a gun that shoots far, than get a 98c or A-5 with a flatline (the A-5 is much better cuz it looks cooler and the flatline for it has a metal or aluminum shroud, plus the A-5 is better than the 98c anyway)
Tippmann A-5 Stealth (realtree, CAR stock, flatline, remote coil)
Brass Eagle Marauder/Eradicator
Spyder Victor (21" barrel, VL evo 2 hopper)
longer barrel, better bolt
This is an excellent gun for beginners to use. It is very affordable, light weight, and pretty accurate with its stock barrel. This gun is very reliable, it will last you a really long time, mine lasted me almost two years so far. Sometimes it might chop a paintball or two every once and a while.
Black Diablo Wrath w/300pis Worr Gas Tank, a ShockTech Med Drop and Macro Line
Everything.....BUT if u want to keep it semi- beginer....a bolt and electro trigger
o and absolutly a new barrel
Easy To Shoot (snappy)
Alot of trigger pull
I got this marker as my first 3 and a half years ago. This is a good begginer marker. It is very light and easly held. The Victor has a quick releace pin so feild striping is a breeze.
Quality - Exxclent, very sturdy and relyable
Feel - Very Good, nice grips, good drop foward
Accuracy - i give it a 6/10 for accuracy. The Victor needs a new barrel BAD
BPS - Its a semi - auto so you get the ushual 5-6 bps
Value - Ok, its a begginer marker so it will get u started. With upgeades you will b able to stand your ground against most markers in your class and one above.
Is i said, a good begginer marker. It' ll get you through the day while haveing alot of fun. The possablies for upgrades are endless. Kingman has the most upgradeable markers in the market. A new barrel will put you in a good spot.
Everything standard... Couldn't upgrade, it broke to fast.
Don't even buy this gun.
It's light... Thats about it
Everything about how it works.
This was the first gun I ever bought... and it broke within the first 10 times i used it. If I knew this was such a bad gun, I would have never bought it. I would have saved my money, and bought a different one. Now i am down $80, and I have to buy a cheaper gun than I would want to buy.
I would not buy this gun unless you want to waste some cash.
14" 32 degrees nyte stik barrel
16 oz CO2 tank
none really, just a starting marker.
Not very accurate, doesn't look to cool, and loud.
This was my first gun, i bought it for $30 and it has never broken. It's more or less a starting out gun to see if you really really like paintball. For $30-50 it is cheap and it works. I now gave it to my brother and he's goin see if he likes paintball with it. It's not to picky on paint, it just pretty much sprays it anyways.
Cheap but not a very accurate gun or very effective.
None so far, I've shot other guns but not enough to make a statement
J&J Ceramic 14"
CP Gas Thru
32* LPC and ASA Vert Adapter block
Definitely a new barrel, some kind of expansion chamber or reg
Not a gas hog, easy to break down and clean, great beginner marker,
Slow compared to higher-end markers
The Spyder Victor is a great entry level gun for anyone trying to work their way into the sport of paintball. It's easy to take apart and clean and it's pricetag is very reasonable for someone who doesn't want to use those beat up rentals you get at the field. The stock barrel is extremely loud, so word to the wise, go out and get yourself an aftermarket barrel for 30 bucks. You'll thank yourself later. All in all this is a great gun that can keep up with it's higher end competition even in speedball. Also, with a 12 oz tank I can easily go through about 500-700 rounds without a refill. Truly a benefit for the cash concious.
This is a great gun for someone trying to get into the sport. I would venture to say that it's probably a much better gun for woodsball then speedball, but is equal to any task thrown at it. It's a tough gun considering I've managed to drop it a few times and because it's so easy to clean it makes it a joy to use. Also, I haven't yet chopped a ball and I've use paint that is less than par (Such as PMI, Brass Eagle and the like). With good paint this is a deadly gun.
A bolt could help this like most spyders scraches bad
easy to find
not to picky on paint
Some what loud (which may bother some, but to me just the more intimidating)
This is an awesome gun, when i got it i decided to test it i've got a crono and a distance wheel.
i used scorch which are kinda average paint and shot at a barrel which was 55 feet away the grouping was about 3 or 4 in.apart, the velocity was about 80% or full i saw that after 100 feet the balls stared to drop or curve i was impressed because i only payed $50 for it .
ps i went speed balling with this gun an kicked @#%
By far the best gun under $100 .Plus there like the AK-47 of the gun world you can throw it in the dirt and dip it in water it will still shoot like out of the box. i understand its not as accurate as a angel or something so im giving it a 10 only because its a 50 or 60 dollar gun
10 out of 10
