Blitz 3

Hey guys, I've been looking to get my first electronic gun, and given I already have a kd2 I figured I'd stick to azodin. How does everyone feel about the blitz 3? Is an on / off asa needed for one? What's the quality of the gun (shooting / holding)? Any information would be great! Thanks!

I have a 2011 Blitz, which is different in just a few minor aspects. The Azodin Blitz 3 is great for the price, because it rarely ever chops, has very quality milling, and can shoot at almost 20 bps depending on whether or not you get the board flashed. It is not the most ergonomic marker you will hold, but the way the grips are made and the angle at which the reg is positioned makes it actually decent to hold. An on/off asa should be the first upgrade if you already have a clamping feedneck. It is a bit heavy, but just pick up an old WGP or Automag and you'll realize how easy we have it. It is also loud, and harsh on paint, but a Zero system fixes that to some degree. All in all, it is a great beginner to intermediate electro marker made by a reputable and quality company, so I say go for it.

I like the composite grip. I'd add an adjustable reg if it were me.

The Blitz 3 doesn't include an adjustable reg?? It has an inline rocksteady regulator, right?

Hmm. I feel like this preset regulator would cause issues at indoor fields, or places where reg adjustments are needed.

Velocity is adjusted with the spring, not pressure.

Well apperently it does, considering it dictates a large amount of the forward energy exerted on the paintballs. The spring can only do so much at the given tensions, so if the field limit is 240 but the gun is preset at 290, you'll have to theoretically back the feather spring out past the rear knob.

Yeah they should indeed make another Blitz the League. I mean, I saw some gameplay on it and I really want to pick it up however I really hope they make a new one. It's probably the only "career" mode football game out there. Hey, midway games did indeed develop mortal kombat so I would the next Blitz to be an arcadey feel like with the first 3 games. Another thing is that they will make loads of money on it like god damn, the football community is so big and most of those people are demanding a new career based football game. Back when I played the graphics were top of the line imo but it's probably just they way they modeled it.

Kind of but not exactly.

Is there any way to report this spam crap?

You are correct - to a point. Yes, the output of the reg is related to the fps up to a point. However, the Blitz 3 was not Iintended to be an all around, all use marker. Azodin has other markers that fill that niche.

Another thing to consider, using your indoor field example, is that there is a lower fps limit that a paintball marker can reliably and consistently operate. 240fps isn't too much of an extreme but there comes a point where the operating air pressure is not high enough to repeatedly reset the hammer in a blowback marker. I would imagine that the idea of the Blitz 3 is that it is a pick up and go shoot kind of marker. It may have less adjustability and someone with some marker operation knowledge may look at that is a negative but that also means there is less to screw up by a user who doesn't know anything about marker operation . So, the target audience for the Blitz 3 isn't necessarily someone who wants to tweek it and use it for any possible situation. That's what a ZII or a KDII is for.

I used to play a while ago and my brother in law kinda got me back into it so I ordered a blitz3 being how cheap it was, out of the box it is pretty sweet my brother in law used a virtue gun to clock it and I got 19.9 bps @ avg fps of 280 on 150 shots.... so for a new player it's ready to go when you get it. I will say I wanna get a reg, on/off and macro for it now that I like it so much lol
