Hey, my first gun was a VL Triton II set from walmart on my 12th birthday.

In my opinion, if it shoots, then it'll definitely work as a beginner gun, although you may grow out of it VERY quickly.

EDIT: DO NOT UPGRADE ANYTHING ON IT. Save up to buy a better loader, tank, and mask first off. After all that, you should look into buying a new gun. In the meantime, have fun playing paintball and welcome to TechPB.

My first paintball gun is a Planet Eclipse Etek 3 LT; I use it with a dye rotor and a 4500 tank. I was wondering what would be a good upgrade from an Etek 3.

kids.

My first gun was a Talon, the gray one. Then it was a 98 custom with a RT, man I thought that thing was a machine gun.

Don't exaggerate. You're going to out grow that gun fast and want to get something higher end but you can use it if you don't play all that often. If you plan on staying in the sport for a long time though, you should have gone with something else, like a used Proto Matrix or a used Ion, both can be found for around $120.

No need to upgrade from an Etek 3. An Ego will shoot nicer but there is absolutely nothing wrong with an Etek 3.

my advice would be to return it, buy a little more expensive start up setup:

gun- azodin kaos: $90
tank- guerilla air 62/3000: $50
loader- invert halo too: $75
mask- v-force profiler: $75

in total: $290

now i know this is expensive, but if you buy this then you have the ability to upgrade your gun, you already have a fast loader and a good hpa tank and a good mask, you can compete with anyone!

IF it shoots, and you can carry it, use it!

Don't worry about it being not up to standard with the others. If it can get you to play paintball then it gets you to play paintball.
If you enjoy paintball a lot, get the set-up splatman said, but I recommend the GOG Enemy over the Kaos. Enemy can be upgraded to a higher potential than the Kaos.

For the price, it is an excellent marker! As long as you have everything you need to play (Mask, tank, hopper, marker) then you should be good to go! It's not the marker that decides how much fun you'll have.

Don't worry about upgrading a beginner marker. Concentrate on first buying a high end mask with a thermal lens. Then a good 4800 HPA tank and when/if you get tired of the shake and bake, pick up a good force fed loader. Just keep your JT clean and maintained until you decide to grab something new.

For a beginner package thats perfectly fine. In a year you might decide you don't even want to play anymore, and all you'll be out is $100-$150. Don't listen to the people on here telling you to spend more money, not everyone has $300 to spend on their first setup.

This was my first gun, 12 years ago, ViewLoader Orion. I got it for $50 and I always used a gravity hopper and CO2 with it. The gun still works today like the day I bought it, which is more than probably 90% of people can say about their newer guns. Only reason I upgraded is because I wanted something that shot faster and didnt feel like a .50cal when it fired.

Keep your package and own it. If down the road you really get into the sport and want to upgrade you will be better for it.

Don't listen to this guy. Go buy all that 300 bucks worth of gear. It's all worth it in the end, whether you decide to continue playing paintball or not. If you do decide to keep on doing it, then you're all set for a really long time, and do not have to worry about stuff as useless as upgrades. Most upgrades do near to nothing for your gun, and you may have used that money on actually playing, paint, or another gun entirely.
However, if you do decide to not get into the sport, then you're fine too. It's a whole lot easier selling the high end, nice gear used, than the sub par, shit crapper stuff that's also used.

More people are willing to buy a used rotor, used i4, and used ninja 68/4500 than a used eggy, used walmart jt's, and used 48/3000 steelie. Less money lost, and more experience with the sport is all you leave with.

Unless youve got disposable income throw away Buy that stuff in 3 months if you're still interested in the sport. If your gun shoots that's all you need to have fun. As a beginner your equipment is going to make very little difference.

no. this is a starter thing. which means hes not even sure if he'll like paintball enough. Don't assume that people automatically like paintball when they get into it. why would he spend almost 300 dollars which isn't even his own money because his mom bought him the jt outkast, when he doesn't even know if he likes playing enough to continue? if it shoot then play with it.

Because, if he buys the good stuff first, he'll either:
Really like the sport and be glad he got the good stuff first.
or
Not like the sport, and have items that aren't that hard to sell and will most likely get most of his money back.

He'll probably lose close to 50 bucks, but at least he had fun doing so, plus 50 isn't even that much. Get the good stuff first. Whilst saving up for it, use the rest of your money just to play, because money can't really buy experience or a good time.

you fail to dispute the other point about the money not even being his, so its really up to the parent. so he can't even get that stuff without the help of his mom.

Well then I'd say to just wait until you can afford it, and just play or rent until then. Because honestly, no electro is worth it in the long term if its under 200.
