The most dependable Rec-paint anywhere, Midnight is economical, without the "mystery batches" that plague the other low-priced brands. Fills wash out, and Midnight runs clean through every kind of marker. Now available in colored shells: Moonshine Yellow, Crimson Red, Aurora Orange, and more.
The DraXxuS Midnight Paintballs are older, so they are not commonly available anymore.
Any interchangable bore kits (usually a .684 or .689)
Medium to Large bore barrels (SP barrels work well)
Swells to larger size when left alone (as any paintball does)
Ive been using these paintballs for a while now and before ive been only using cheap Wal-mart paint. Which by the way...really sucked. Ive used Stingers which were better, but for $10 more, Midnights were drastically better. the balls have soft shells so that they break on impact, but wont break in your gun. ive only had about 5 breaks over a years use on my Piranha and no breaks in my ProMaster (then again, i did have the eyes on all the time, lol). The fill is usually yellow, so that you can see what and where you're hitting. at about $50 a case, its pretty inexpensive...so far these are the best paintballs i can find for the price. Only problem is that these swell up from a .684 to a .689 or higher when left alone (as with most paintballs) even in room temperature.
Good for recreational and tournament play for the money.
Monster Balls(not even close to being as good as midnight)
Wild streak (^^)(same thing as monsterballs but worse)
Blue Dye Back
Blue Hybrid grips
Blue NDZ roller compiste trigger
Blue Ion body kit
Blue Halo w/ rip drive
Virtue Board membrane
Ayything really but my most recomended is stiffi but be smart and don't use some completly teirble barrel that will chop any paint be smart and don't use it because you are throwing away good paint.
Price (for the qualtiy)
More in review
This is the best paint I have ever used in my whole paintball expernce except Tear wich is probally just as good as Midnight. This is good paint and if you like good paint for a resonable price get this paint.
Price- This is very low price for the quality of the paint so it is like 44.99 for this paint so again I say if you want good quality paint for a reasonable price come and use this paint.
Color- This is blue paint so it is not red wich most feilds outlaw and it dosen't stain nothin. It has a greenish bluish fill so dosen't stain or look like blood (wich would be deep red)
This is the bwst paint I have ever used so don't think that you aren't getting what you paid for.
Weaknesses there isin't a weakness with this paint it is insane.
This is the best paint I have ever used so just get it.
shoot realy straight/very accurate
Wount break in marker
Splat realy good
I orederd these online with my trilogy comp from discount paintball. When i got them i opend up the package to check for breaks, not even one. There were four 500 round bags in the box(2000rounds), i shot about 400 rounds today and never choped one even when i shortstroked the trigger a few times, they splat awsome and have a realy good bright fill. Out of the 400 i shot sofar i think only 5 bounced, 3 of those when i shot a volly ball. Later on today i went down to a field by my grandmas house, aimed at a clothes hanger wheel (like a trolly that moves the hanger line when u pull it) about 40 feet away and hit it 7 out of 10 shots and the ones that didnt hit only missed by 1 or 2 inches. Then i aimed at a shed at the end of the field about 110 feet away, the balls hit it every time
I shot over 2000 of these and only choped 2
Wount break in gun
Always hit there target.
*I am giving this a 9 sence they occasionaly bounce off people*
9 out of 10

I heard from friends and the paintball shop owner that draxxus makes good paint. So, I bought a case for the weekend. I orrigionally brought my pump, but because it would not break on anything, my friend let be switch guns for the day (he had an uped Ion). I would repeatedly get bounces off of anything except lenses, markers, bunkers and hoppers. The only good things was that it didn't break in my barrel once all day, and the fill was prety decent when it did break.
Um, I will never buy this paint again. It gets a 3 though because it did break sometimes, but never in the barrel.
I ordered a box of these @ an online store (I actually ordered Diablo Midnights, but Draxxus is what they sent (Are they the same??? If you know please post a comment to this review.)
Anyways, we shot them with my Tippy C-Pro (w/ both barrels) & my brothers A5 with a J&J ceramic barrel. Even though our marker setups were different we both had the same experience: These balls Octopus every which way!!! We couldn't shot consistent shots no matter if the target was 5 meters or 20+ meters away.
I wouldn't recommend this paint to anyone simply because it doesn't fly straight... But if you are lucky enough to hit someone, they'll concede for sure!;) It gets a 2 because there is worse paint out there! ..I just haven't encountered it yet.

By god I hate this paint. I was once playing a tournament with this stuff and almost wasted my whole supply in a few games because it never burst on the player who was wearing a single jersey and one layer of pants. I kept on nailing the guy and calling for the ref to do a paint check and after every time the ref pronounced the guy to be clean and still in the game!!! Finally the ref got sick of running back and forward between the center of the field and that guy and just stood there and kept yelling clean every time he came back after getting nailed. Even when bunkering the guy i had to shoot him in the face to get him outand mst of those balls didn't break. In 1 game i wasted 3 pods and a hopper before getting him out. The ref himself was amazed by the sheer low quality of this paint. I know we could have won that tourney but because we ran out of paint in the middle of the game we played with the next team we had to go home early and beaten because we had no more money for paint. The only good thing about it is the fact that it doesn't break in the barrel.
DO NOT GET THSI PAINT!!!! IT SUCKS!!! I give it a 2 cause it never broke in our barrels.
I used two cases of midnight the other day with my uncle and cousin in both speedball and woodsball. These paintballs were easy to see yet did not like to fly strait in my flatline at all. They were also easy to whipe but luckly the fill is bright enough that its easy to tell when you hit someone. All in all I was pleased with this paintball as it was 10-15$ cheaper than a tournament paintball however I'll stick with scorch for my flatline as its cheaper and shoots better.
Good paint, but I might get a different paint for my flatline.
This is the first paint i have ever used. Got shot by it but hey its paintball. The paintball is strong but breaks on person not barrel and great for tournaments. alot of people have used it and is the best from draxxus along with dusk balls. the only problem is that some of them (1out of 1000) are misshaped and have thick shells. No problems happens to a paintballer every once in a there playing life.
I think you should buy it, the best and used by the thousands a day. anything else doesn't compare. im not saying brands like proto dynasty and nelson balls suck its just draxxus midnight is better. 9 because of the problem in review body
Broke on target everytime even when making long shots, thick fill,
Didnt find any
Bought these online for 22 bucks for 1000 i wasnt disapionted they are great balls this just go's to show that quality of your balls usually depends on where you get them from and how old they are, bla bla bla blabla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla
If you can get them for under 25 i would buy them over anything else in that price range
