I dunno if you guys have heard of thsi marker yet. It's called the Goblin--it's a single-shot sidearm that is freakin' small. Just wondered what you guys thought about it.

I think that its' only useful for showing off, really. I mean, I might buy one just to carry to look cool or something (lol), but not for a real game.

I would buy one of these, play a big scenario VIP game, become an assassin, locate the VIP, and shoot him with this marker. I would then put it in a trophy case. And never forget the day.

EDIT-

Or mod it into the Golden Gun from 007.

EDIT 2.0-

Or both.

I believe Modern Intel did a review of it on their site. It was kind of interesting because they were putting FS rounds in it.
I think the best/funnest use for it would be to use it for committing seppuku after you lose a game or don't accomplish an objective or something.

You're clearly thinking inside the box on this one.
This is a GREAT scenario Role Players marker. I wish I had one of these a couple years back at a game. I was an "Ambassador" in a Red Dawn themed game. I was running around to all these meetings with a Splatmaster tucked in the back of my pants under my coat (yeah, I was wearing an old thrift store suit). I was actually on a third team, and I heard about a mission to assassinate the General of the Americans, so I take the mission for the Russians, because I was going to go meet with the American General to discuss my third team helping them take back a supply depot. The Americans had been promising us a lot of "money" all game (how we scored our points), but hadn't delivered, while the Russians had been paying us well. So I decided to teach the Americans about paying their debts.

Problem was, when I went to pull the Splatmaster (which I had loaded), it was really obvious. Managed to get the General, but immediately got mowed down by his bodyguards. With that Goblin, I could have had it in my sleeve or a coat pocket or something, and shot him when I went to shake his hand.

My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.

@Pirate
The best I could do was pull a James Bond in Casino Royale with a blue knife. shook his hand, with the "arm on the back" kind of hug, stabbed him instead. I tried running but I guess paint mines are a good idea for a front door defense.

EDIT-

I'm thinking we should all buy one of these and play that game, I forget what it's called, the cruise ship? and every player has a target they must eliminate, but they need to avoid being eliminated too? I feel the name is really obvious...

Anyways, play a scenario game inside of a scenario game. Score more points if you eliminate your designated target with the lil dingey.

But where am I going to find some sort of epic win playstyle like that in southwestern Ohio?

Just find some Scenario games. Maybe hope on the Regional forums here.
I have to travel at least 4 hours to find a good scenario game. Usually it's closer to 6-8.

That would be neat for scenarios as long as your friends don't know you have it. Of course, if your friends don't know you have it... then what's the point in having it? LOL (That was humor)

It was originally posted in the review section: http://forum.specialopspaintball.com/index...howtopic=179487

I personally have no interest in such a thing. All I can imagine is dropping to the ground and having that thing go off in my front pocket.
