Can you tell us a little about yourself or how often you play? Generally I would say no, I don't recommend it, but if you on play a few times a year it's fine.

Honestly, a regular ole 98c would be good enough on all fields. If you don't get a stock and get either an apex/flatline barrel, you'll have a semi short gun with decent range.

I love the Crossover.. and the XVR is a great marker to pick up.

The 98 is also great, if you are going to play often enough then I would say Crossover.

I have been running A5s since the 90s, and because you already have one, any barrel upgrades you have may work on the Crossover. It's lighter, handles quicker and throws paint with less effort than the A5. You can lose the remote and tank on your pack which makes switching hands much easier and speeds up snap shots, not to mention running quicker. You also have mechanical mode as a backup which actually saved a game for me a couple of weeks ago when my battery died right after the breakout. I finished the game in semi-auto and even got the winning elimination. I am sure there are plenty of electros out there in a similar price range like the Axe that shoot just as well or better, but the mechanical option, the A5 barrels I already had and my faith in Tippmann reliability sold it for me.

Be aware that if you get an older one, you may have to tighten some screws, upgrade (free) the trigger and adjust it a bit. You will need a powered loader and an hpa tank, so there is a hefty expense involved. If you get the XVR, it should be good to go. For me the Crossover with a freak barrel, a rotor and a Ninja 68/4500 is a 10.

Oh, I forgot to mention you will get about twice as many shots out of a tank fill vs. the A5

I love my crossover. One of my favorite markers to date. I put easily 50 cases through it last season and it never missed a beat.

Yes, I agree with him....if you are comparing it to a marker that costs over twice as much like the geo. But then again, I have also played against people with geos, Dye DM 13s, Egos, Eteks and never had a problem holding my own. And I have had fewer problems with my trusty Crossover than most people with the above mentioned markers that I have played against.
In fact, the only problem I had to date was not because of my marker, but the loader blending brittle paint (and I have used Evil with no problems), but with my Spire that was also fixed.

I owned a luxe, geo, ego, and several other high end markers when I chose to shoot my crossover at events last year.

A higher price bracket does not make your marker better suited for play.

Your preaching to the choir here... I just think that many believe that the mid range markers can't be taken seriously in comparison to the more expensive super guns out there, especially if "Tippmann" is on the side of it (among the sup air players) I know a lot of people are surprised that it isn't a blowback and I can shoot high quality tournament paint without spraying it out the front.

They came out in 2002, but I do understand seems longer than that. Hard to keep track when you have been playing so long. I can't seem to remember when I first got a pro carbine lol.
I really want a crossover now thanks for the info!

Yeah, I stand corrected. At least I have moved into this century and I don't play with Sheridans, Nelspots and the "new" Splatmaster like when I started. I can guarantee you that was in the '80s too. The paint didn't come out of your clothes back then either. It's much easier to play with the Crossover now and you almost don't even have to think about reloading and such. 1200 shots out of a tank instead of 24!!!
