New Rocket Launcher From Tankless Invasion

Tankless Invasion start to manufacturing a new rocket launcher TKL-02 ;Very powerful, light and reliable; 1200 shots per fuel cell, no Co2 or any tank attached to it.
It shoots foam rockets at 130Ft/s or about 220 ft in distance.
The company invested a lot to low the prices of the launchers keeping high levels of quality.

Seems like it'd hurt way to much to get hit by one...

You aren't supposed to shoot rockets directly at other players. Scenarios use them to clear buildings, bunkers and eliminate tanks. Most have rules against shooting players direct.

I have been shot by them. At 130 fps, it is not a big deal. Most scenarios do discourage or disallow shooting players direct, but IIRC Viper allows helicopters which can be eliminated by the rocket passing anywhere through "the body" of the chopper which can at times lead to a passenger being shot.

My biggest questions are how much the fuel cells run, how well they store long term (can I leave one in the launcher for three months without any significant leakage?), and whether the breach and launcher are 2" so I can use existing nerfs.

Its not bad to take a direct hit. I played with a prototype model at Extreme Rage in Ft. Myers and it was awesome. Great distance and you can shoot it over and over again. I know the company is working hard on ensuring quality and gladly took our feedback from testing.

The ones we've used when I've played the UWL have been run on a 13 ci Ninja N2 tank.

I was out at ER and did the standoff where I got shot from about 5 feet away in the chest. It definitely has more mass, but a paintball hurts far worse at that distance.

What is a fuel cell ?

A fuel cell used in the Tankless Invasion guns, is the same as used on cordless nailers. Fuel Cells provide powerful performance in a compact package. Giving you portable power you can count on, these handy fuel cells will save you time and effort and will forever free you from the mess and hassle of those heavy and huge CO2 Tanks!!


Where can I buy a fuel cell ?
You can find in many hardware stores.


How much does a fuel cell cost ?
The manufacture sell a package with 2 fuel cells for about $14,00.

Getting hit with Nerf rockets isn't that bad in my experience. These guys came to our campus a while ago and nobody got hurt while playing.

According to their product description, though, the fuel cell is combustible, which would definitely make things interesting. If someone knows better than I do, please correct me, but to my understanding, anything that propels a projectile using combustion force is classified as a firearm here in NJ.

I wonder if they are aware that this would be (at best) classified in many states as an infernal machine, but would absolutely be considered by the ATF to be a firearm.

...Based on Section 921(a)(3), air guns, because they use compressed air and not an explosive to expel a projectile, do not constitute firearms under Federal law — unless they are manufactured with the frames or receivers of an actual firearm. Accordingly, the domestic sale and possession of air guns is normally unregulated under the Federal firearms laws enforced by ATF.
There was a similar issue with the Tippmann C3, which operated on camp-style disposable liquid propane tanks, rather than a nail gun fuel cell (a mixture of propane and butane in a charger cartridge). The idea is the same, as is the function.

I would advise against anyone purchasing one of these unless you are licensed to carry a firearm - I would also recommend against shooting a person with one, or discharging one in public. Poorly thought out products like this have the potential to do a lot of damage to our sport.

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.
