Have they said if the reg is rebuildable? As in user maintainable with no special tools or warranty issues.

Honestly like I've said before the features on this gun r amazing and really u couldn't ask for more the only down fall is the look and price but even if they made it looks better the price wouldn't b as much of an obstacle.
Look at the luxe, there isn't anything super special about it. Nice bolt design ok but nothing we haven't seen before. No oled screen instead it talks to u... Retarded in my opinion. Who needs this as a feature? The blind?
It shoots smooth and the main thing is that it looks good so people pay the $1500.

This guns features blows the luxe away on paper, haven't shot one so can't say otherwise but the vanquish isn't easy on the eyes. That's the only reason it's getting hated on. I'm just hoping it shoots as nice as empire says it does.

Looks ugly as hell. I like the trigger tho and the color red other than that no way. It's an axe that had a kid with that one cheap tippmann gun. Looks matter no matter what people say. I would rather have a Luxe 1.0 with cash any day over this gun

Thumbs up Funny initial reactions

It is funny to see/hear negative talk.
So many products that come out get bashed do to lack of knowledge.
When the Empire Mini came out it was received similar to the Vanquish. Many said it was ugly, too small etc... Empire Axe was the same thing. The Axe had nothing but negative comments until people got it in there hands.

The differences of opinion on outward appearance is what makes the world go around.When you compare all the features in the Vanquish to the competition and feel the differences yourself, only then will understand why it is Extraordinary.

Or . . . you can learn the hard way when you are across the field and on the receiving end of it.

looks fine to me I just would never pay that much for any marker and that is only because I dont play enough for me to do it. but I am like others that the luxes does look alot better in style. The features of this on the other hand are nice. I like the one allen key and like the oled. but then again I dont really like any marker that does not have a standard reg setup. I think its only becuase I like to have a choice and this takes it away.

I'm pretty sure most other guns have a paintball come out of the barrel at around 300fps...I'll save my $1500. It's been posted before, but for $1500 I don't have to decide whether I want form or function, I'd like to have both.

I think what makes the gun look "cheap" is the polish on it. In the video, if you see the flat/matte black version, it actually looks alright.

Also, it could be that the pictures they are showing are all in a single color whereas if there was another color in the accents to contrast the gun color, it would look less "cheap."

Both grips look cheap, the trigger looks like something from 2002, and the ASA looks horribly chunky. The exposed screws I think are what makes the front grip really look tacky. Frankly, the tapered look the carbon tip gives the gun doesn't do anything for it either.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
