I have recently purchased my first paintball marker. I decided on the Azodin Blitz. I love this gun!
I had a few initial problems, but those are fine now. I was about to go out to play at my cousin's birthday party, so i decided to lube and check my marker. Everything was fine until i turned it on and put my Invert Halo Too on and tried out my gun. It shot about 3 times fine, but on the fourth shot the ball only went a few feet and the bolt didn't return to the back position. I thought it was no big deal, so i cocked the bolt back and tried firing again, the same thing happened. I dont know why, but i decided to try my gun with my old gravity hopper, and it worked perfectly! No breaks the entire day.
What do you think could be causing the problem?

It the hopper itself the halo pushes ball to fast and hard through the feedneck
Try a hopper that is not a force feed
Yeah, it works fine with my gravity hopper, just not with my electric one.
The first time i played with my blitz, i used my invert halo too and it worked perfectly. At the end of the say, something went wrong with my gun where the paintballs would just shoot a few feet and the bolt wouldn't re-cock itself. I went to the repair shop and they fixed it. They said it was something with the regulator. Ever since then, my gun wont work with the electric hopper.

My backup is a blitz with Halo Too, and it works perfectly. Check the batteries in the hopper, marker, and make sure your air tank is full. If none of those are the problem, take apart / re-assemble the marker to make sure nothing is completely off.

My buddy uses a Blitz with a Rotor, and has borrowed a Halo Too. If memory suits, they use Bob Long style detents.

Check to make sure your detents are seated properly...or even are in place. You'll find them below the eye covers.

the only way i can see the hopper causing this issue is if the feed neck of the hopper actually sticks down into the breach slightly causing drag on the bolt and thats why you are seeing slow velocities

other than that it has to be an issue with the marker

With my autococker my halo will force 2 or ss paintballs down the feedneck and it shoots all them at the same time or will break one and i have to clean the gun

That's because an autococker is a closed bolt marker, meaning the bolt is forward when it's in the "resting" state. you're getting paint rolling out the barrel because the barrel bore is not small enough to hold the paint in place. This is actually why different size barrel bores and kits started.

Most every other marker is an open bolt marker, and the detents actually hold the paint in while the bolt is open. If the detents get worn out, or are not installed properly, you'll have multiple balls feeding
