I got a Tippmann A-5 with...........
GTA double trigger
red dot scope
16" J&J ceramic barrel
20Oz pure energy co2 tank
I use Zap extreme Sportz
Hmmm are there any?
Hard to set off
I was sneeking up on a guy and his buddy threw one of these things at me.
It didnt explode
I grabbed it, removed the mesh and shook it
Than I therw it as hard as I could at the guy I was trying to get
It hit a rafter (Indoor in a barn/old chicken coop) ya a hard wood one
and it bounced of and hit him in the head.
by this time my buddy shot him and the game was over.
The kid who bought it than threw it down at the ground and it blew on all of us
This thing has problems
It will explode.... eventually but make sure you throw it and not just lob it.
meh a 2 tippmann could do better than this
Atomic Big Boys - Excellent
Atomic Pod Rockets -Not so good
Automag with custom wood grips, custom stock, Crossfire 68/3000 TSA Frontman
Smart parts ion with freak kit, CP feed neck, Gurilla air 68/4500 Apache Attack
Old School Markers
Nelspot 007, PMI 3 pump, spatmaster and splatmaster rapide
Very low chance it will go off accidentally
built like a tank
Low chance it will go off when thrown
Poor spray pattern
Hard to throw accurately any distance other than very short.
Has to be thown hard against a solid object (like a tank, wall, or bunker) to have a chance of going off.
Very low chance of going off in pocket, or when thown.
However it is light and one of the cheapest out on the market.
When paint grenades first came out, this was the only one available. So then it was "WoW" and "Fantastic". Even then it was not that good, but the only alternative was latex water balloons. I only get them to go off (and even then very low chance) at short range HARD throws against a very SOLID object like a tank, bunker, or wall. The spray pattern seldom is the "wide arch" "cover your enemies" that is advertised. I will say they are compact and very safe to carry, but that is about the only plus. Once the netting and cap is off, they are very hard to throw with any accuracy (much less going off) at anything more than extremely short range. With the competition out there it is very disappointing that the design has not changed.
In conclusion Tippman makes many fine markers and items for the military/police simulations, so it is VERY DISAPPOINTING that they have not improved their paint grenades at all. With Atomic Big Boys available, this product isn't worth your money. I would give a 0 if available, given the competition.

I hate these things, My friend and I had a small private game on a property close to us and we bought 3 of these cheap grenades, we read the insructions and we split them up among the players and played, we used our grenade right away and hurled it across a open field were a guy was squating down laying down paint we watched the grenade hit the ground and bounce a couple of times, we threw it about 20 feet and it just bounced, after the game we picked it up and pushed on it, we saved it for the next game and tried it again, we thought we had to throw it harder, we chucked it at a tree where a guy was and it still dindn't go off, we picked it up after the game and slammed it on the ground and then it went off, the other 2 grenades took multiple throws to get them to go off and all they do is spin around and fling splatter around, you would have to be right next to the thing to get enough paint on you to be out, there cheap grenades and they just dont work
waste of money, cheaply made and they just dont work, stick to F-bombs and other grenades, these just dont cut it
I found none... unless you like to get ripped off.
Does not go off as a grenade should.
I was at the paintball store... refilling my co2 when my friend descides he wants to buy a squadbuster... We get the the field where 4 others are waiting ( we play at an abandoned house in the middle of a country) Anyway my friend feels top of the world with his new grenade ( none of use have ever seen or used a grenade.) We play a couple of games and my friend with the grenade never seems to live longg enough to use the grenade... so we take a break to have a drink of water and my friend is getting impatient and just wants to throw the grenade. So we get everyone togeather and stand in a circle about five feet apart and my friend throws the grenade as hard as he can against the groung in the middle of the circle. Guess what the grenade went off.. and it didnt bounce... it just layed there with a thick pour of orange paint pouring out of each end of the grenade. one of my other friends picks it up and shakes it violently... and he got paint allover himself...
The grenade didnt do a thing... i think it is a waste of money and taking the risk of popping your head out to throw the grenade is just not worthless. Has a radius of about a foot.

Kingman Spyder Imagine Digital LED
-ACS Bolt, Empire Reloader II hopper, 14 oz co2(soon upgrading), stock barell
Well this is a good grenade to throw, make the opponent run out of the bunker, shoot them, then go and pick the grenade up again. It dosnt work, it sucks period. I havn't used the other grenades out their, but this one, so i cant really do a comparison. Except deffently go with other grenades out their.
Dont get this grenade if your expecting it to acctually work.
Anti -Chop bolt
J&J Ceramic 14"
There's paint in it.
It can be used for vandilism.
Will not go off %70 of the time. Has radius of a foot.
Well , bought one of these hoping for the best. Looked at the instructions and went off to woods with a few friends. Well, when we got there I took off the black mesh, pulled the pin and removed the cap. I threw it , and it landed in hard dirt. It did'nt go off , so I picked it up again , and this time I threw it at a tree as hard as I could , I bit of paint dribbled out , making a few drips of light blue paint. This time I got mad and threw it at the ground in front of me really hard , some paint squirted out about one and half feet , and the paint grenade looked like a deflated balloon. I'm not gona buy this paintball nade again.
DON'T GET IT! Don't Waste your money!
I'll give it a 2 because it had paint in it atleast.
Only goes ff 25% of the time
Usualy have to throw 5 times
This grenade realy is not good do not get you have to through it realy hard to somtimes have it go off and it rarely works. just don't get this!!! If you are looking for a good grenade go for the other ones like big boy grenades.
Do not get!

other paintgrenades, water baloons filled with paint
2003 Pro Stock
Shocktech Bomb 3-Way
You might be able to hit someone with it.
It doesn't do anything?
Well we were going to go play up in Shingletown out in the woods. we bought 2 of these grenades for about 4 bucks a pop. We played the whole day and forgot about them so at the end of the day we thought we'd test them out. We grabbed one, shook it up, took of the netting, pulled them pin and removed the cap. We threw it really high, and it hit the ground and bounced. and then nothing happened. so we picked it up and threw it really hard. and it bounced. so we threw it at a tree from about 5 feet. and it fell onto the ground. so then we started playing tag withit, and the only way we got it to pop was after we dropped 30 pound rocks onto them.
You might be able to whack someone senseless with this, so you can run up and shoot them, other than that just basically a flying rubber projectile
Ok, so one of my friends got one of these to see how good they work.So, during a game, one of my friends who was on a hill about 60ft away chucked it at me.bounce bounce bounce.it didnt do anything.after the game we went to look at it.yes he pulled the pin.we wanted to see how much it sprays.so, after hitting it agains a board from about 5ft away, it finally bounces off, hits a tree, and makes a nice little 2x2 ft splatter..
Don't waste your money on this, spend it on paint.
