The Best Paintball Guns For Beginners


Peace through superior firepower

While I'm all for trying to help out new players and encourage people to take up our sport, which I might add the @bz paintball guide does very well. I find your list of 'best paintball markers 2017' somewhat lacking.

Is this meant as a guide for beginners? If so it's fundamentally flawed given there are two £1000 + markers on it. It is also suspiciously similar to another three or four 'guides' available on the net, being very Tippmann heavy and interestingly worded to boot....

Your guide with respect is no where near an accurate list of the 'best' markers of 2017 or any other year for that matter. For example where is the Eclipse LV1, The Eclipse CS1, Dye M2, DLX Luxe, or Shocker? In fact aside from the Empire Vanquish there is not a single top end tournament marker on the list!!

Therefore it cannot be, by simple definition a list of the best markers available, end of story.
