Help with upgrades!!

My gun setup at the moment is an Azodin Blitz with an Valken V-Max loader and I was wondering if anyone could help me with what upgrades I should look into if there are any.

It depends on what your goals are. Are you trying to play tournament/speedball or more scenario/big game?

Hmm...Like b-town pb said, depends on your goal, but there are a few things I'd look at.
1. HPA. If you're not running HPA, you should be.
2. Barrel/Barrel kit. A new barrel can help your consistency as well as pointability, weight, and other factors.
3. Spring kit. A spring kit will further help your consistency by making your striker cycle at the same speed every time, which makes your velocity very tight.
4. Bolt. An upgraded bolt will help with consistency, weight, and cyclic speed by using different faces, materials, and other factors.
5. Drop forwards, inline regs, ASAs, etc...These basically change the configuration and user-friendliness of the marker. The inline reg will aid consistency and adjustability of velocity.

So, there's your upgrade list. You shouldn't need to upgrade that marker too much, there's bigger fish out there.

I am I more of the woodsball scenario player due to the lack of time, money and commitment.

And for the upgrades I was looking for something specific! Like what specific barrel I should look at or what spring kit.

Thanks a lot for the help guys

Take a look at Mann's barrel guide. You should never have another barrel question once you go through it.

I honestly wouldn't recommend you wasting any money to upgrade the internals. Getting something like a new tank is fine because you can use that on your next marker. But why spend money parts that could easily total more than the marker was worth anyway?
With low end markers I suggest playing with as is until you are prepared to move up to a higher level marker.

This. Spend the money on things that can be transferred to a higher end marker once you are able to upgrade. Tank, hopper, barrel kits, things like that. Also spend your money on gear like a nice pod pack, good mask (most important), pants, and possibly pads. All these things are important and will stay with you no matter what marker you own.
