First ill answer the marker questions:
Right now, there are 3 really popular platforms that most markers use.
1. Stacked-tube poppit (aka Poppits)- Alien Indy, PE Ego, BL Intimidator/G6r are all exampled of high-end stacked-tube poppits. Alien Invasions, PE Eteks, Infinity Legends, and Spyders are some more examples. Generally, these are more reliable, more efficient, have less moving parts and seals but also tend to cost a little more.
2. Spool valve (aka Spoolies)- MacDev Clone, Luxe, Dye Matrix, Proto Matrix, G3 and G4s and FEP Quests are all examples of Spool valves. Generally, these feel softer and quieter in the hands when they shoot but their efficiency leaves something to be desired. Due to more moving seals they also tend to leak more and because of less material used they can be cheaper than poppits with the exception of the super-highends that probably have close to a 200% overhead.
3. Inline poppit (aka Inlines)- Empire Axe, Invert Mini, AGD Automag and the PE Etha are all exampled of inline poppits. Most people will describe these as the best of both worlds because it is very similar to most spools and poppits. However, while it might be good in almost every category it doesnt excel in any of them, in my opinion, but they can still be a great starter marker to help you decide which path you want to take with markers.
CCM is a brand that makes high-end pump markers. Really good product but not something 95% of players will be looking for. They are best known for their pump kits which can be used on most Autocockers and their standalone models which are the S6, T2 and S6.5 models.
If you want to know bunker names do a quick search either in this section or the New Player section. There are multiple threads asking the same thing. However, the most important things to know can be learned from watching games through the net; Just pay attention to what people are calling out and you will be able to piece together what is what.
