Beginner Paintball Guns

Finding good beginner paintball guns is very important. This extreme sport can be very overwhelming at the best of times, inexperienced players should not have to do with malfunctioning equipment.

But… at the same time, paintball rookies don't necessarily want to spend an arm and a leg for their gear either. If you're just testing the waters with paintball, you'll want a decent quality gun that you can find for cheap. So this page is dedicated to guiding paintball beginners to their first beginner paintball gun.

What Should You Expect?

Beginner guns are simply not going to be 'elite quality.' A good one will get the job done, but it won't be a force on the paintball field. Your playing performance will be completely decided by how well you play.

The goal of a beginner gun is to make sure that your paintball gun doesn't burden you in any way. (and believe me, most paintball guns in this price range will give you nothing but a big ol' headache).

You should expect a gun that fires with reasonable accuracy, and does not malfunction every other day at the fields. But don't expect pin point precision or a fire rate above 1 or 2 paintballs per second.

A good beginner marker = 120~ dollars

Which Brand Is Best?

You could do some research to find out which paintball brands are best. But what's the point? A brand that manufactures top of the line paintball equipment will be out of your price range. Unless you have a paintball sponsorship. The top brands, such as angel or DYE should be completely out of bounds.

But if the question is what is the best beginner paintball brand, then you are certainly in the right place.

We Recommend Spyder Paintball Markers!

If you search the internet for paintball reviews on affordable paintball guns, you will find that Spyder paintball guns are almost always at the top of the list.

You'll never be able to find a professional paintball player use a Spyder paintball marker, because they were designed specifically for the inexperienced or novice paintball player.

But for what a Spyder paintball marker was created for, this company has simply gone above and beyond. I still have the first paintball gun I ever bought; it was one of the original Spyder Rodeo's. (Rodeo is a series of the Spyder paintball guns) It's still in great shape. I still like to take it out for a spin once in awhile, when I'm not competing in a serious event. And it absolutely holds it's own.

The accuracy is somewhat respectable, which is incredibly rare for any of the 'cheaper' paintball guns. And it can fire 2.5 paintballs per second. Which is nothing to write home about, but as good as it gets for this price range. move from Beginner Paintball Guns to Paintball For Beginners
