This gun is the first gun I bought, and I still use it and I will never change! If you upgrade the gun, it will perform even better, depending on the upgrades. I upgraded my Tippmann 98 Custom to a m4 and it is awesome, not only does it look badass but it performs even better!
I totally recommend this gun to all beginners to the sport.

Absolutely solid gun. Used it for years. It has a lot of upgrades available from force fed hoppers to e-triggers, you name it, alas they all take an additional cost over the kinda high starting price. They hold their value exceptionally well, but now a days you can pick up a used Angel for cheaper than a new 98. What the heck?

The 98C Platinum is a very good marker. I used it for over 10 months and i never had a problem with it. It rarely ever chopped or jammed and it was very reliable. It wasnt the most accurate butwith a jj barel its very good. It is extremely customizable. The 98C is a cheap gun and its a very good starting gun. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to get started playing paintball. The only upgrades that i would recommend getting are a barrel and maybe a stock. My first gun was a 98C Platinum and I still use it some today instead of my A5. If you purchase this marker you will be impressed by its reliability and performance. You won't feel the need to upgrade for a while. For sure the 98 is the best beginners gun in the market.

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG This gun is reliable in the sence that, every time you pull the trigger its going to shoot. The only real bad thing about the gun is what ever your aiming at is probably the last place your paint ball will end up. But for $100 new.. You cant beat it.

i've owned a tippman 98 for a long long time and plan on keeping it forever.

i swear, you could throw one of these out of a vehicle moving at highway speeds and you'd be shooting paint with it as soon as you found it.

if you want a reliable back up gun that will never fail you, pick one of these up. my local field uses them for rental guns for this reason.

CONs: stock barrel is garbage. basically the only thing you need for the gun.

PROs: everything you'd expect from tippmann. great entry level marker.

This is my main gun and it's a great shot and won't break but it would be amazing if it was a little lighter. I have a 16 inch barrell on mine and it has amazing accuracy. It would probably be my favorite gun of all time.
