Best Paintball Guns Reviews: Complete Buyer’s Guide

Are you looking for the Best paintball gun for the money? Read on as we review all the top options with Pros & Cons of each

When signing up for a round of your first paintball experience, chances are you’re going to be renting some equipment. You’ll need pads, a mask, and a paintball gun. Using range equipment is fine if you want to play a game once or twice a year.

However, if you want to start taking the sport seriously, you’re going to need gear of your own. Renting gear is expensive, and after a few sessions, you’ll probably spend plenty on rental fees. Buying your equipment makes sense.

You don’t have to worry about ammunition or firing failures due to unmaintained and abused guns, and there’s no more strapping on a sweat-soaked face mask someone used in the game before yours.

The cornerstone of your gear is the paintball gun, and it’s also the most expensive piece of kit you’ll buy for your time on the range. In this post, we’ll review the best paintball guns, and give you a few options on the best models for your next game.

If you can’t wait to get to the range and start playing paintball, why waste your time reading through the entire review? You can rely on our top picks for a gun that will give you the best accuracy and power.

We looked through dozens of models to select three models we think represent the best of the bunch. In these top choices, you have options to suit your playing style and your budget. Choose the paintball gun that matches your gameplay, lock-and-load, and hit the range!

The Stormer Elite from Tippmann wins our award for the best overall paintball gun. This marker has everything you need to perform on the paintball field. You get a modular feed design that accepts mag-fed ammo, or the use of a hopper.

We like the mag-fed action, but we would like to see a larger magazine capacity. The ergonomic handle features stippling for improved grip during gameplay, and a wide trigger guard to accommodate gloved fingers.

This model comes with Picatinny rails on the top and bottom, and flip-up sights included with the package. You get a front handle for better control over the marker and improved accuracy. The realistic AR-style design gives this model a mil-spec look, with adjustable power for shots from 250 to 320-fps.

Paintball Guns Buyer’s Guide

After reviewing all the models, you might find yourself feeling more confused about making your purchase decision. That’s okay; we’re here to help you iron out the details and select the best paintball gun to suit your gameplay needs.

In this section, we’ll look at all the features and components of top paintball markers. By the time you finish reading this guide, you’ll be an expert on the topic.

Types of Paintball Guns

When choosing your marker, you have the option of three different types of models. The action of the paintball gun is a critical aspect and something that requires consideration.

Pump-Action

When paintball burst onto the scene in the 80s, it was a niche sport. It took a while for paintball guns to reach the level of sophistication available in todays markers. The first markers available in the 80s and 90s featured a “stock class pump” design, requiring manual priming of the gun before firing.

These markers were similar in operation to a bolt-action rifle. You need to pump the stock after each shot to recharge and prime the bolt—the need to pump the gun after each shot slows your rate of fire. Todays modern pump-action markers feature an “open class” categorization.

Pump-action models are a favorite for advanced players looking to change things up and challenge their gameplay.

Mechanical Action

These markers are a popular choice for woodsball tournaments where players need reliable and durable markers. There is no electronic component to this marker, making it easy to maintain while offering fewer problems during gameplay. The rate of fire is better than a pump-action but is still way below what you get with an electric model.

Electric

Most modern markers feature electric operation. Instead of a mechanical hammer opening the release valve to prime the bolt, they use a solenoid to open it electronically. These markers feature operation with a rechargeable battery pack or a 9-volt battery.

Modern electric markers provide high fire rates, offering discharge rates of up to 30-balls per second. It’s best to pair it with an electric hopper to get the best operation out of an electro marker.

Other Important Features of Your Paintball Marker

The barrel of the gun makes a significant difference in the accuracy and consistency of your shot. Look for barrels that offer rifling to help spin the ball before it leaves the barrel. When choosing your paintballs, you must select the right size ball to fit the barrel.

Inaccuracy with the marker is often a result of not having the right size paintball fitting the barrel. As a result, the balls tend to fall out of the front of the barrel when you point the marker downwards.

We recommend opting for the modular barrel design, such as the Freak Barrel. However, most markers in this review come with excellent barrels right out of the box.

Considerations for a Paintball Marker

When choosing your marker, you need to consider how often you intend to play paintball. If you only get to the range a few times a year, you might not need top-quality equipment to enjoy a day of fun with your friends.

However, if you’re looking to start competitive play and plan on being at the range often, it’s a good idea to invest in high-end equipment. An electric model with a speed loader is a good choice to get the most out of your time on the range.

  • Warranty – If you’re dropping hundreds of dollars on a marker, it better come with a manufacturer’s warranty against defects.
  • Weight – Choose a marker with a lightweight design. We like models that weight less than 4 to 5-lbs max. The additional weight makes a difference in your gameplay, slowing your draw after a few hours on the range.
  • Styling and Comfort – We like markers with a mil-spec design for additional realism. Ensure that the handle of the marker provides an ergonomic fit in your hand.

What are the Different Types of Paintball Propellant?

Paintball markers offer two types of propellants for operation on the range.

CO2

In the nineties and the 2000s, most paintball guns relied on CO2 gas for propulsion. However, this gas offers unpredictable performance. The gas provides high-power shots in warm weather, but the gun might fail to fire in cold conditions.

This lack of consistency frustrated paintballers and many of today’s top paintball markers no longer accommodate the use of CO2 as a propellant. On top of the performance issues, CO2 also fast-tracks the wear and tear of the seals and O-rings in your marker.

However, most handheld markers, such as the Tippmann Tippex or Tiberius First strike pistol, require the use of 12-gram CO2 cartridges. In most cases, a 12-gram cartridge will supply around 15 to 20-shots, depending on weather conditions.

HPA

High-Pressure Air is the new gold-standard of paintball marker propellant. With compressed air, you get a consistent shot that doesn’t change much in terms of accuracy and velocity. The temperature does not affect performance consistency.

HPA is the most common type of propellant used on paintball ranges, and most fields have a compressor on site to let you refill your tank between games.

HPA marker tanks come in 3,000-psi and 4,500-psi versions. When purchasing a tank, manufacturers categorize them by internal volume, for example.

  • 3,000-psi + 45 cubic-inch = 30/45
  • 4,500-psi + 90 cubic-inch = 45/90

45 cubic inch, 50 ci, 68ci, 77ci, and 90ci are available, and for most paintballers, a 45/45 or 45/50 is the preferred volume.

Paintball Mods and Upgrades

Part of the fun of buying a marker is upgrading it. After purchasing your gun, give it a few sessions on the field before you decide to upgrade. However, many people find themselves upgrading their marker with the latest mods right out of the box.

It’s easy for you to get carried away with upgrades, and before you know it, you’ll end up spending more on the mods than you did on the marker. Some of the common upgrades for markers include the following.

  • Barrel and muzzle
  • Optics and scopes
  • Slings
  • Front handle grips
  • Full-auto trigger configurations
  • Trigger upgrades
  • Expansion chambers
  • Agitating or electro hoppers

When purchasing your marker, plan on a budget, and stick to it. As we mentioned earlier, spend a few weeks with your standard marker before you take the time to upgrade. The chances are that if you take this strategy, you’ll barely notice any difference when upgrading your gear. We think that most mods don’t offer a huge difference in performance.

However, the electro speed loader is the one upgrade we would choose if we could only have one. This upgrade makes a significant boost in the performance of the gun, and it’s well worth considering it for your first mod.

Basic Strategy for Your First Paintball Session

You can have the latest and greatest marker with all the upgrades, but if you don’t understand the strategy, you’re going to find paintball frustrating. Paintball is about blending mental and physical skills while dealing with decision-making under pressure.

During a game, you must have excellent situational awareness, while loading, aiming, and firing the marker – often while moving. In paintball games, the best basic strategy you can use id called “running the wire.” The “wire” refers to the perimeter of the course.

Through “anchoring, gaining, and controlling” the perimeter or wire, you gain a strategic advantage offering defensive positioning. This strategy helps you avoid players from taking you out from your blind spot. Find other players who have a solid understanding of the use of paintball strategy and brainstorm with them about the best tactics to use during play.

Paintball Guns FAQs

Does it hurt getting shot by a paintball gun?

It depends. Most paintball ranges will only let you tune your gun to a maximum pressure of 125 to 175-fps. This velocity hurts a bit on impact, but it won’t cause severe damage. Make sure you wear a face mask and plenty of tactical padding.

Can I use a paintball gun for self-defense?

Yes, paintball markers make effective “less-lethal” guns, and you don’t need any background check to buy a marker online. We prefer using mag-fed options for home defense, using semi-automatic operation. With home defense applications, you’ll need to use pepper balls, nylon balls, or glass breaker balls.

Breaker balls weigh around 6-grams each, offering the best penetration and devastating results. It’s vital to understand the power of the weapon. Shooting your friend with a high-power marker at over 300-fps, with breaker balls, can cause severe injury or death.

How long is the service life of a paintball gun?

Paintball markers don’t last forever. Eventually, you’ll need to service your gun to keep it in working order. The most common failures on paintball markers involve the O-rings and seals. Look for a maintenance kit that includes spares.

When maintaining your gun, it’s vital that your grease all the O-rings and seals with silicone grease to prevent them from snapping. Depending on how often you use the marker, you could get anywhere from 6-months to 3-years before you need to change O-rings. Running the marker at high pressures wears out the seals and rings faster.

Where’s the best place to buy a paintball gun?

We recommend purchasing your marker from Amazon. Amazon has the best range and great prices. When you check out with your marker, you get buyer protection cover, and you don’t have to worry about people scamming you. Amazon offers fast shipping and delivery, which means you’ll be playing your first game by the weekend!
