The axe while not my favorite marker is an adequate marker to get the job done...the axe is empire's flagship marker currently, Infamous is Empire's factory team for the most part. And sponsorships entail what you can and cannot use. What would you suggest they use? Many teams and players have seen success with axe and overall it is a high end platform.

Does a more expensive gun do the job of a paintball gun BETTER? No? OK then.

No one can bag on an Axe. Infamous won Russian Legion with Axes.

there just as effective as a clone geo ego luxe vapor demon, and there less expensive also as stated above multiple time infamous is empires factory team so of course they'll use axes. the player makes the player not the gun/ equiptment

Empire just launched a new marker today, called the Vanquish. I would be willing to bet that the Pro teams will be rocking either a mixture of Vanquish\Axes or all Vanquish.

Every team has a set of sponsors and they cant just use any gun they want, you'll probably end up up a couple pro teams using the new Ego, but you'll still probably see GEO3s and I would imagine all of Infamous would be shooting Vanquishs.

Yes i am aware of this. But i dont think the teams sponsored by PE will even want to use the new Ego or whatever they call it. Its ugly not sure how it shoots yet though. Yes i expect to see a fair share of Geo3s aswell

Last year every player shot the Empire Axe. It is the best valued gun out there. Shoots amazing and for the price you can't beat it. This season we are using the new Empire Vanquish and it is by far the best shooting gun I've ever shot.

I haven't gotten a chance to shoot the Vanquish yet, but I did get my grubby mitt's on Cuba's Vanquish and it's a damn nice feeling gun. I was impressed w/ the build quality and feel of it. He had nothing but positive things to say about it, too.

Now I just want to shoot it, but having seen it in action from the PSP Webcast it looked like it was doing what it needed to do.
