First off what is on the tippmann is not duracoat

Second. I like painting my markers for more steltha nd I also think they look cool. I challange you to look at a profsional job from someone like Micah/Big Bone and a standard black as say that the Duracoated marker loos worse than balck.

Real weapons can and are coated in camo patterns, buddy. Your standard issue weaponry won't have much due to cost issues, but special forces units, police and others use it extensively. Weapons are being designed to have interchangeable composite shells with different camo schemes on them as we speak as well. So I don't see how putting camo on a marker will make it look 'unreal'. It's common sense and it's been a battlefield perk for ages.

If you don't like camo patterns on paintball guns for whatever weird reason, then your entitled to your own opinion. Just keep it that way. No sense at all in bashing other people for camouflaging their markers up.

Either way it narrows down to your application and implementation of camo. You can be all ghillied up but stick out like a soar thumb if you don't know how to use it. Bottom line, giving your marker a good scheme is an advantage.

I like the normal black look. Now, I've seen 1 or 2 jobs I liked, but if you change stocks, barrels, hoppers, or anything else, the paint won't match and it will look like crap. It also destroys the price if you plan on selling unless you find a buyer that REALLY likes the paint.

i dont get. people take a great looking gun and put a paint job on it like tiger stripes or digi camo and then it looks like crap. why dont people just leave their guns alone . ive never seen a paint job on a tippy that looked better then the stock mil-sim duracoat black. your taking a beautiful and expensive gun and destroying its good looks. but then again its performance that really matters. anyway, i just dont get it.

I agree that they are pretty much wrecking a good gun but some players just want to be all comoflauge to improve their game



The camo would work a lot better if they really knew what they were doing. Painting your gun camo is not going to help you if you are always moving, shooting, and yelling. Now if you paint it to match the setting, and have a complete ghillie to match, and know how to sneak, crawl, wait, and shoot.. You will be one of if not the best player there.

o.0 You don't know what you're talking about, do you... I bet if you saw this gun on a paintball field (if it was a paintball marker) you would think it looks like fake crap.. But I bet you that guy could hit a guy from a LONG ways away with that gun. I also can tell you that that camo paint job makes the gun blend in MUCH better than normal black.

Your right, but he is also in a desert though where black stands out quite a bit compared to the deep greens or browns of a forest.

A marker painted to match your environment will definitely help, but in a lot of cases it isn't necessary.

I'll admit an all black gun can look very nice and clean. However it will probably also be the reason you get shot while hiding in a bush.

I don't see how there is an argument about this. Properly implemented camo will help you. It's as simple as that.

As I said before, if you know what you are doing, using camo sticks to color up your marker works great. You can also change the scheme when needed to match environments rather quickly. Nothing you'd want to do in the middle of a walk on game, obviously, but it helps.

Alot of people do it just to stand out. Tippmans are (arguably) the most popular marker out there. There is nothing wrong with being different.

Well, if your tippmann's are like mine, they are moded, and have a mix of shiny & flat painted parts. I agree that a Tippmann looks good with the black powder coat, I don't like the reflection cast out but my, cough, tippmann werks barrel, cough, cough.

I am in the process of painting my gun. Hopefully it works out.

I personally love the look of Camo, and once I finish upgrade my gun, and modding everything that I want to mod, I'll be giving it a nice digital woodland-ish paintjob. I'm thinking that I'll keep the magazine, and barrel black though.
