Had to be my spyder after I put a rocking trigger frame. That thing was the worst, spent waaaaaaaay too much time and money on it. Just a simple trigger upgrade, went to a ACS bolt, to a hopper, on and on. Basically a lost cause. But we all learn from out mistakes. Lesson being, spyders are great guns for general rec ball play, when left strictly mechanical. Try to make a blowback shoot 30 bps, and you will be sorry.

Yep, JT Tac 5. I don't know if it is the worst marker in history, but it was the worst I ever owned. I only paid about $30 for it, but it was still a bad marker. The trigger pull was one of the longest I have ever seen and it had a problem one time where the sear would not catch the bolt just right and it went full auto and emptied a full 20oz CO2 tank. I gave it to a friend to use as a spare marker. Being a spare marker is about all it's good for.

i had a friend that thought his marauder was the crap, i just thought it was crap lol, and the worst i have used was a BE something idk what it was called but it was blue and had the "fiber wrapped barrel"

My dad has that gun. Its like the eradicator or something like that. And the barrel looks kinda like cardboard with something around it.

ICD Desert Fox '98..... I literally broke three (3) bolts on that thing by simply dry-firing, then gave it away to a friend who used to own one. His was the best gun on the field... mine was the worst. I guess I just got a lemon or something. Every other one I've ever seen or heard about was super reliable and worked great. meh.

My old Triton II. It shot paint, and that was it.


And even then only occasionally.

I'm serious. It was awesome. I took 2 old barrels, glued them together at a 90 degree angle, and stuck that on the front of the gun. The verticle one acted as a hopper, and the water would shoot the ball out the horizonal one.

Later on, I just filled the thing up with water and food colouring and shot that at people. A good time was had by all.

Does throwing a barrel at someone count as a barrel tag? I say it does. Unconventional tactics FTW.

A lot of people like to give Brass Eagle flak, and it is pretty bad - but you also have to consider what you pay for it.

To be honest the worst I've used is probably a 98 custom. I bought one for a family member as a gift just a few months before Tippmann stopped production of their Pro/Carbines. 98 Customs aren't absolutely terrible markers, but at the time they cost the exact same price as a Pro/Carbine and the materials and build quality were incredibly worse on so many levels. I owned Pro/Carbine at the time and thought I would get them something just a little bit different than what I owned, but it was unbelievable how much less you get with a model 98 when you pay the same price for a Pro Carbine.

From that perspective A-5s were an even worse of a deal. They cost even more but cyclone aside they were exactly the same but with a bulkier shell.

agreed. My a5 was the biggest piece of crap i ever bought. I spent more on that marker than any of my current ones. And it failed on me more than all my other markers i have owned total (20+) combined. Worthless piece of trash. That cyclone is a piece of garbage. Broke every game i played. Everyone would tell me how reliable and great tippmanns were, how they were bomb proof. Well mine wasn't even air proof. Cause just being out in the air would break it.

The worst I've ever seen was my buddy's Sim4 I seriously don't think I have ever seen it last a game without something on it needing to be fixed. I actually bought myself a backup marker just so he would have something to use besides a rental or having to quit for the day.
