My name is Mike Peverill. I’m here at Pev’s Paintball Park in Aldie, Virginia. I’ve been playing paintball nearly 30 years. I’ve played professional paintball with numerous pro teams all over the world. This facility here was built from the ground up for paintball, kind of like a paintball Disney Land. Our website is www.pevs.com. Hopefully you can come out and visit us sometime.

Rec Ball Guns and Speedball Guns are notably different. A lot times just by the color. I mean, Speedball Guns, typically, you’re gonna see a fancy color such as this. And some of the guns behind me that are red. Or then you’re gonna see Rec Ball Guns which are more like this, which is black, hard to see, looks more like a real gun, kinda similar to this. When you look at a gun like this, you know, this is what we consider more Rec Ball-related or scenario-related. So I’m gonna go over the differences between the two in several ones. The basic Rec Ball Gun is the same thing with the rental gun. Like a Tippman Model 98, for example. It’s basic, it’s simple, durable. But it’s kinda got that look to it that you’re kinda playing, like, war, in military, you know? But at the same time, it’s rugged, and it’s not gonna break down on you. And this is a Speedball Gun. High-end clips Geo. It’s a high-end gun, very flashy. Electronic triggers, electronic panel, a control panel that tells what it’s gonna do. It’s fast. It’s a high-end race car. Like, if you’re gonna go win the Nascar event, okay? As opposed to something like this. This is just a regular car without all the bells and whistles. But this is durable. This is durable too, but this one is typically gonna have more problems with it. Because when you push a gun, a paintball gun, to its limit, you basically have a problem where it’s gonna be finicky, a little bit. It’s gonna have things that are gonna go wrong with it. But, but a gun like this, you’re gonna play in a speedball tournament, or a national championships anywhere, you want a gun like this. Super fast, the electronic trigger allows it to shoot, you know, anywhere up from 15 balls a second and up. As opposed to a gun like this, where you’re shooting, you know, less than 10 balls a second. It’s a little slower, it’s clunkier, but at the same time, it’s durable. When I play for fun out here at the park, I’ll use this, because it’s durable. But at the same time, reliable, it makes it happen. Now, if I go play Scenario, a lot of times, you get out there with scenario version of Rec Ball, where guys are gonna have a gun like this. Where it has all these after-market effects on it to make it look kinda ominous. Kinda looks like you’re playing war, you’re playing Rambo. And then, you know, and as you see, it all depends what your taste is. If your playing style is Rec Ball, then you’re gonna determine, “Do I want Rec Ball, regular Rec Ball? Or do I want Rec Ball scenario paintball, where I want it to look more realistic?” And, and then if I’m gonna play Speedball, when I play in the national tournament, I still use a gun like this. ‘Cause I rely on its dependability and rate of fire. I need this gun to shoot like darts, ball after ball, as fast as I possibly can.

What category does an azodin kaos fall under

Here’s the real talk on paintball markers guys, since there’s so much confusion in the comments.

First off, if you have any questions, feel free to ask me a question.

A speedball gun will always, 100% of the time work better than a woodsball gun. I don’t care what anybody tells you, it’s the truth. If you take care of a speedball gun, it’s always going to be more fun to use than a woodsball gun.

The truth is that 99.99% of woodsball guns are cumbersome to carry, they’re all annoying to clean, and they’re often times not able to shoot quick (they’re not electronic, most of the time). Sniping in paintball is NOT possible. Sure, you can get long ball shots, but they’re far and few between.

Secondly, a speedball gun WILL work in woodsball/recball. Think of it this way. If you buy a woodsball gun, you’re going to have to buy another gun whenever you want to play speedball. If you buy a speedball gun, you won’t have to buy another gun unless you want to.

Axe 2.0 or Etha 2 which one is better


Lol i play on this field

Desirousname287 says:

I play woods ball but I really want an electronic gun would it be bad to get one?

YungCzarOfDC says:

I’m just starting out. Is the Azodin Kaos a good gun

qscorner says:

where would a gun like the Dye DAM fit in?  It’s very scenario based with it’s look and FS rounds but, it has a high rate of fire and feed for regular paint as well.  Would it work well as an all around marker for true woodsball or speedball (cleared field version not the inflatable enclosed court)?

tony huang says:

Hey do they Azodin Kaos in the pro shop?

Ben Crawford says:

Hey, what do you play with?

Christian Castro says:

Quick question is it possible if i can transform my woodsball marker to a speedball

Samuel Sawdey says:

yes a speedball gun is still good in woodsball but a woodsball gun would be awful in speedball. Speedball guns are good either way

awsowm king says:

Can you play both with the dangerous power fx?

Clash Clans says:

I’m sorry for being a noon. but is playing woods ball with a speed ball gun against the rules

Victor Rodriguez says:

GravityShock778 says:

Is the invert mini a good gun?

Isaac Spencer says:

Appreciate ur videos

Tyler Haugland says:

I don’t understand why anyone likes milsim guns; i just don’t. They don’t look real at all, their heavy as shit, and you spend a ton of money on stuff that doesn’t improve the actual gun itself. I personally think speedball guns look way cooler, provide way more function, and are just overall feel better when shooting and holding.

Meow Mix says:

Playing war? Playing Rambo? Real articulate.

Amir Romero-Harvey says:

My gun is like the third kind !!!!!

Khonvict says:

Is the jt outkast a speedball gun?!

ItzChase says:

Could they’ve chosen more obnoxious music?

MOOSE Paintball says:

this video is garbage and “rec” ball is not the same as senario. Magfed is also not mentioned, speedball is not the only type of marker in which there are high ends

Garra Guy says:

i have a budget of 500$, i am a beginner so i want something easy to use but will last long nothing to fancy but maybe a little something diffrent from the default gun maybe a longer barrel or the feeder off to the side. any suggestions?

strayblackcatsmeow says:

Unfortunately Woodsball Fields ar few and far between. Most that advertise Woodsball are actually Speedball or Hyperball. In true Woodsball, the Speedball markers would not survive long. Seen a lot of broken autocockers and even a few broken SL 68 pumps. You use your marker to push branches out of the way when your running and it is not unusual catch them on trees or to fall on your marker in ditches or foxholes. Never saw any CO2 tanks broken from the markers but I would not be eager to test the strength of HPA , its regulators, and the electronic markers to such abuse. In Speedball and Hyperball  the paths are cleared and you are restricted to those paths. Much more friendly for Clown Markers.

edmartinelli says:

SIRA063 says:

Do electronic triggers on speedball guns pass regulations that say you can only have a semi auto on a paintball arena?

Noi zew says:

Everyone who’s asking “is this gun good for” just go watch Mike’s videos. His channel is “paintballtechpb” and he does some budget baller shows and shows what good starter guns are and what they are good for. 

Logan Flowers says:
