Any paintball gun. And it will be as accurate as whatever paint you use and how clean you keep it. Also as reliable as any other if you do proper maintenance.

If you are looking for a TACTICAL style marker look up the Smart Parts SP-1.

great techpb video on the subject! I personally use a 98 custom platinum with a flatline or my 2k3 summer edition WGP autococker with chipley pump kit. Super-semi's like Dye or Ego's are great in the woods though! There is no such thing as a good woods ball marker, just great markers! If you are interested in the Tippmann's like me here is another good video below.

 

 

At the end of the day, remember it is the players skill that matters the most. Get a paintball gun and play as often as you can, that will make you and your marker the best woodsball threat!

I use a Tippmann A-5. In my opinion it is one of the best low cost markers out there, if you are playing on a budget!

 

Or if you just don't want to mess with your marker when you could be playing! 

 

Here is some video of mine in action!

Dropping ANY gun in a mud-hole is going to give you marker issues, and as far as water-resistent or water-proof boards... Why are you getting your marker wet enough for that to matter? I have played in heavy rain with the PMR I used to have and it was completely fine. The only way water will ruin an electro is if you do something completely stupid like try to swim through a creek, or have a really unfortunate accident like the guy CC mentioned. The point is that if there are conditions to break an electro they can probably break a mech/pump/any other marker. The myth that electros are much less durable has been around a while, but tourney players beat the crap out of their equipment diving and sliding into bunkers and they hold up fine to that.

I would like to point out that there is no such thing as a woodsball or air ball only marker.  It's purely personal preference in regards to both.  I dive in the woods with my G6R all the time.  Nearly all boards are sealed for water resistance and playing in the rain will do more damage to your paint than the marker itself.

I find the most glaring difference in woodsball/scenario and air/hyperball to be barrels in all honesty.  And the glaring reason behind that is flatline and apex barrels.  Even then I still run my stock barrel and have a great time.  Forces you into a real shot range instead of long balling.

Exactly.. Goes both ways too, I'll rock my 98 custom platinum flatline out on a speedball field whenever. I know my hopper sticks out to the right, but I'm practicing lefty with it, and I think it could be a pretty strong marker for someone playing the left side of the field. A good marker is good marker in a good players hands no matter what the field.

Pretty much anything Tippmann is a very reliable option. I personally shoot the Tippmann X7 Phenom w/ E trigger. It gives you the best of both worlds, you can program the trigger for full auto, burst, or response, but if the battery dies midgame or for some crazy reason it gets wet enough to malfuntion the trigger you can switch to mechanical in the flip of the safety. I also like the fact that it comes with the cyclone feeder which is able to keep up to the full auto with ease thus reducing ball chops. Not the mention you can pretty much customize it to look like most any style gun you like. AR, MP5, ect...

Budget (used prices) / Gun

 

$5 Brass Eagle Stingray

$50 Tippmann 98 Custom with some upgrades

$75 Tippmann A5 with some upgrades

$100 Gog Enmey

$125 GoG G1 or Smart Sp1

$225 Tippmann Crossover

$275 PE Etha with rail kit

$325 AGD Tac One with some upgrades

$450 G6R Tactial

 

Choose what you like within the list and go from there.  If it's your first marker, a G1/SP1 is a good bang for buck.

For real? Only $5? That's awesome but at that point i'd just keep it and lend it to buddies.

For the most part, yes, I'd agree.

 

However, some of the markers they made when they were based out of Mississauga, Ontario were pretty cool.  Good guns?  Well, maybe for the time, but not by today's standards.  Though, they were definitely cool guns.

 

Golden Eagle

Nightmare Ninja

http://www.vintagere... Nightmare.html

 

Barracuda

http://www.vintagere.../Barracuda.html

 

 

And we can't forget that they made the 3rd electronic gun, the Rainmaker.  I *love* Rainmakers.  They'll tear themselves apart if you don't do the Mad Marty Mods, but they're a fearsome presence on any field.  One guy I knew put a trumpet bell on the end of his barrel and it was the loudest paintball gun, bar none, that I've ever heard.  I once accidentally fired mine in my basement and started yelling about tinnitus like Sterling Archer.  Whenever I play with mine I constantly get chrono'd as refs can't believe something that loud is shooting the field limits.

So, yeah, Brass Eagle for a reliable woodsball gun?  No.

 

Brass Eagle for the "cool" factor?  With certain ones, yes.

I was just making a joke. My first marker ever was a Brass Eagle Talon with Brass Eagle brand paint (best combo ever right ;))  that I got for christmas after begging my parents for a paintball gun when I was 11. I loved the thing, and even though I couldn't shoot a shot accurately past twenty feet, I would be out in the cold of winter every day shooting that thing until I was out of that brittle paint and co2 cartidges. So don't misunderstand my humor as me thinking Brass Eagles aren't cool, heck, without the Talon I may have never played paintball at all.

I own and have played with an Sp-1 and BT-TM15 L.E and personally, I love the way the TM-15 looks, but the Sp-1 has a smoother shot, weighs less, is easier to maintain, and feels more natural to me, the TM-15 is a tad cumbersome for me. Can't go wrong with a spool valve. :P
