Question What should i get?

hey guys im sorta new to paintball, and i just got my Tippmann 98 Custom, and i was wondering what are the MUST HAVES for this gun? Any upgrades that are like a must have for a newbie can be posted here, along with a website or like a super store (i.e dicks sporting goods) of where those upgrades can be found.

Thanks in advance!

Nothing, they aren't worth upgrading

Have fun with it, and if you really like paintball and want to continue, perhaps save up for a electropneumatic marker

boobies are good, but i don't like pepperoni nipples.
Not AZN level price, there's not too many electro markers priced at the same level as the Talon.

Bah you don't need an electropneumatic marker there are plenty of nice mechs that work as well or better. I do agree that Tippmanns aren't worth upgrading the trouble with them is that the upgrades are cheap and easy to find. You start with one $30 upgrade and then another and another and before you know it you have put three times the purchase price of your marker into it in upgrades. With a Tippmann the only upgrade you need to buy is a barrel the stock ones are notoriously lousy and buy a decent agitated or forcefeed hopper and remember to stay away from the Tippmann Cyclone!
