Mini for Woodsball?

I am looking to get a new gun, right now I am looking at getting a mini. I play woodsball during the summer but speedball in the winter. My question is, how will the Mini work for the woodsball?

Thanks in advance.

It'll work... people might chuckle b/c a Mini is mostly a speed/recball gun. I've used my Mini on a forest map and it works great. If you are going to be playing where water is present, make sure to tape up the gaps in the frame in between the foregrip and main body.

It's a paintball gun, it shoots paint... sounds like it'll work!

seriously though, you'll actually have an advantage over the guys carrying Tippmann A5's and the like. Your gun will be a lot lighter and easier to maneuver.

I think you will wonder how you ever played woodsball carrying a big black plastic gun shaped target around with you before. The ability to get in close to cover using a speedball gun is amazing.

We use all 3 of my minis in the woods. I want to get into speedball but the field here is only open Saturdays :-(. I work on Saturdays right now.

People seem to equate woodsball with milsim. Sure there are a lot of milsim players playing woodsball but speedball markers are better for all paintball games from a competitive standpoint

Check out a lot of the pics from the big woodsball events. It's a lot of both. So you should be fine.

The only question is... can you lay off the trigger? That's always my hardest thing playing anything but speedball. Laying off the trigger. I always want to stream paint where nobody has a chance, but it's pointless and a waste of air/paint resources a lot.

If you can ignore the lure of the light electronic trigger you're golden!

The mini is great for both quiet and efficient for the woods but also quick and light for the speedball course. I would always recommend holding one first some people feel they are a little to small and prefer the axe but all in all good choice.

Get a tac-vest that carries 10 pods and an extra 68/45, run a remote line from that tank to the one on your gun and you are motherloving rambo. Seen it done.

Just don't burn all your lunch money on paint...!

I mainly play woods ball and I use a mini. it is very quite if you have a carbon fiber barrel. I love my mini, works great as a woods ball marker.

I think it's safe to say that a Mini is a solid all around gun at this point :looksaroundroom:

The mini, although neat and tidy, isn't that air efficient. Unless you're going to be running only 4 or so pods within a time span of 1-2 games or are carrying something a bit more sizable than a 68/45, I'd suggest a couple things.


First of all, the stock bore barrel has a bore that is too wide and too short, you'll notice yourself having to get much closer to people to get the proper effective range to shoot them out, so for this, I have one extremely effective and money-friendly suggestion:

Lurker Eigenbarrel. Depending on where you live, get the .684, .678 or both.


Secondly to aid in efficiency, look into the Lurker Eigenbolt for Axe/Mini or the BOSS Pro Team bolts (XSV/Infamous colored ones) to plop into the gun. The BOSS bolts are much simpler to install, the Lurker takes a bit more patience, but the rewards are greater.

Either way you come out winning.


Both would run you an extra $69-$75 together, total.

Other than that, even the mini as it is stock will let you slap people around all day.

barrel length has nothing to do with range. FYI.

Accuracy/range/whatever aside, I've tried a lot of different barrels on my Axe and the Lurker .678 is my favorite. It is all I use now. Well, unless the paint is too big, and then I'll use the lurker .684!
