How Much Do You Like To Shoot?

Some players take their time to aim and shoot so they can conserve paintballs by hitting their target on the first shot. Other players prefer to take rapid shots. Unfortunately, some markers have more of a recoil. This affects where you have your marker aimed after the first shot is fired.

If you are someone who prefers to take multiple shots quickly, you will want to look for a marker that doesn’t have as much of a recoil. However, if you enjoy trying to hit your target with a single shot, you may want to focus on other features such as distance, weight, and aesthetics.

Endurance Vs. Power

When you play paintball, do you move around the field a lot or do you stay in the same area? If you are always on the move, you will want to choose a lighter weight marker. This will help you endure carrying it around during lengthy games at AC Paintball.

If you are more of a sniper who likes to stay in the same area, you should focus on power. The marker may be a bit heavier, but it will be able to shoot more accurately at targets that are far away.
