Just use it as is for the moment.
See what YOU know it needs to suit how you want to play.

A big mistake new players end up making is upgrading the hell out of their first marker and then going out and buying a whole new marker. Resale on paintball gear is terrible and starter markers are impossible to resell so all those upgrades are a huge waste of cash.

If you want to replace the barrel go right ahead just don't upgrade stuff because you think you have to upgrade stuff.

Exactly.
New players with new guns feel they are inclined to put a bunch of fanboy, useless stuff on their marker, and dont upgrade anything that will be useful, because they dont know what will be useful, because they are new.
See what you think it needs, the bare minimum, and report back.
