Marker Advice Needed

Occasional recreational(woodsball) paintball player. I won't ever be involved in any serious competition. Currently own a Tippmann Cronus. Realized quickly that while it's reliable this thing is heavy and not nearly accurate enough. I'd like to spend <200 on something reliable but much lighter (smaller is a plus) and that will be significantly more accurate. I don't need any electronic functionality. Will something like a Azodin Kaos be good enough? Can I pair a marker like that with a better barrel to get better accuracy? Thanks

Accuracy is 84% the paint you're using, 15% the barrel you're using, and 1% your propellant. Given quality paint, a good barrel, and stable propellent (compressed air instead of co2), a Cronus will be just as accurate as a CS1, M2, Luxe ICE, or anything else that costs $1000+.

Kaos will be lighter and smaller, much easier to work on. The stock barrel on the kaos will be better than any stock barrel that tippmann makes.

Better paint goes a long way, if your local field is like most, they will sell a few different paints, don't get the cheapest stuff next time.


Also, a good mask will allow you to see better if you don't have one already, can't shoot what you can't see.

Rules. Must read.

Here are the rules, they are pretty straightforward, make thread titles clear, don't be a idiot

That pretty much sums them up

Welcome, if you made an account you already agreed to the terms and conditions. We are a pretty low key group but full of good advise

There is no such thing as the "best" marker
