Paintball is a sport that aroused much enthusiasm. Consequently, the competition grew stiffer and the paintball market came into existence. Thus, when it comes to the primary equipment of the sport – the paintball gun/marker, there are quite some picks which stand on the top of the paintball market, and are considered as the ‘best paintball guns’. These paintball guns can greatly increase the success rate of even highly skilled marksmen. The best paintball guns criteria aren’t filled by an array of products of different companies, for those companies who are held in high esteem in the paintball industry, and have perfected their craft are the ones who hold these paintball guns under their belt.

With the list given below, you can find the best paintball guns in the market right now.

  1. Empire
  2. Tippmann
  3. DYE
  4. Spyder
  5. Planet Eclipse
  1. Empire

A part of the G.I. Sportz conglomerate which started its operations near Montreal, Canada.

Empire Paintball Mini GS Marker

If you’re a speedball player you simply cannot overlook the Empire Paintball Mini GS Marker. It is incredibly lightweight, and to add to its field value it has a very high shooting rate. A player can maintain the high shooting rate for a considerable time because of its self-lubricating trigger and rubber foregrip.

The only complaint that it raises is due to its small frame.

  1. Tippmann

Tippmann is another one of the parts of the G.I. Sportz conglomerate with a high share in the high-end paintball gun market with its military designs.


The Tippmann TMC MAGFED is a semi-automatic paintball gun. Its durability alone may just afford it a place on the list, but the paintball gun demands a much higher consideration because of its overall performance capacity. The main elements of the gun are built with metal to achieve its much-acclaimed durability, and still, Tippmann has managed to keep the weight of the paintball gun light.

Ironically, its strong design is what contributes to the limitations that a player faces in dissembling it.

  1. DYE

DYE was started by Dave Dehaan in his garage. We can assume that DYE became a strong force in the international paintball equipment market based on the performance quality that its paintball equipment show.


One of the most expensive paintball guns in the market and well worth it, as it regularly makes the list of the best paintball guns. The paintball gun is considered to be highly reliable both performance and durability wise. It is one of those silent paintball guns that helps you make stealthy moves on the paintball field. The DYE M2 can be described as a premium, highly accurate, and generously warranted paintball gun.

DYE Proto Rize MaXXed is a less expensive relative of the DYE M2.

  1. Spyder

Kingman earned its fame by introducing Spyder – a semi-automatic paintball gun in the 1990s. The Spyder paintball gun was generally accepted as affordable.

Spyder MR100

Spyder MR100 is a mechanical paintball gun that is revered by beginners. Sporting a military design, the gun lives up to it in the field. The long barrel of this paintball gun provides the player a decent range and straight shots. Similarly, its high-quality material facilitates a considerably long functional age. The paintball gun is highly versatile and accurate, making it a good fit for speedball as well as woodsball.

  1. Planet Eclipse

Cool looks, high-performance value, and tournament renown, Planet Eclipse holds these achievements under its belt with its regularly featured best paintball guns.

Planet Eclipse Etha 2

Planet Eclipse Etha 2 is a widely accepted tournament gun. It is an electropneumatic gun and thus has a relatively fast shooting rate. This paintball gun is highly durable and low maintenance. An evolution of the Etha 1.0 – this gun uses the Gamma core bolt for more efficient shots. Now, if you don’t mind the loud sound then the Etha 2 is an easy choice.

These paintball guns are accepted by the majority when preparing the list of the best paintball guns. They are considered top-notch for live tournament play and you can lay waste your office rivals in no time with these, omega style.
