New Empire Vanquish

EMPIRE VANQUISH

Empire Paintball brought you the awesome Vanquish paintball marker that performed great on the paintball field, but we are never satisfied and have worked hard to make it even greater. It has a newly designed body that hides the hardware, and offers a more refined look that incorporates a slick bolt removal design. We didn’t stop there; it also has a new snappier trigger, more reliable Eye system, a high-tech battery connection between Frame and Body, and a new barrel with 7.5-inch control bores. We think it is the smoothest paintball marker available, put one in your hands and you’ll think that too.

NEW FEATURES:
• Includes Vanquish 1.5 Bolt, Rod/Spring and Ball Detent upgrades
• New Driver XX barrel with 7.5” control bore in four barrel back sizes (.682, .685, .688, .691)
• New Body design with a cleaner look that hides the screw hardware
• Improved engine airflow creates a shot with less kick
• Improved push button Bolt removal with hinged Frame for ultra quick maintenance
• More reliable double Eye breech sensor system that is also easier to clean
• New design of the 4-way Adjustable Dual-Bearing Trigger
• Improved Trigger action
• Wireless battery connection between Grip Frame and Body
• Improved 2.7KHz Beeper to provide audio feedback
• Switch to Micro USB port for PC connection

HARDWARE FEATURES
• Pressure balanced Spool Valve firing engine
• Precision pressure sensor for onscreen pressure readout- No external gauge needed
• All adjustments and maintenance require only the 3/32” Hex wrench
• Rubber tipped spring assisted Bolt is soft on paint
• Widescreen OLED display with super bright 2000:1 contrast ratio
• 5-way Joystick navigation control
• Nano-watt XLP flash microcontroller performing up to 16 MIPS (million instructions per second) provides highly accurate timing while not eating your battery

SOFTWARE FEATURES
• “Slick Assistant” Lubricant Monitoring System alerts you when you need to lube your marker
• Marker to PC enabled with no special accessories needed. Upgrade firmware, change settings, and make custom boot screens with the downloadable PC software
• RF Upgradeable for seamless marker to loader communication
• Interrupt based firmware gives an ultra responsive feel when firing. Virtually no lag time between trigger pull and response time
• Super intuitive menu system that makes changing settings quick and easy
• 3 customizable User Configurations to quickly and easily switch style of play in seconds
• Training Mode with beeper feedback for players to practice their Trigger Speed without need for air or paintballs
• User adjustable Anti-Bolt Stick settings makes First Shot Drop Off a thing of the past
• Preset Tournament Firing Modes to keep you legal at any major tournament
• Customizable ramping and full-auto modes to max out your marker’s performance
• Resettable Shot Counter
• Calculated Average ROF and Peak ROF achieved can be displayed on screen

And maybe Brad's gun.

And Jay is right, the back is very different.

When we asked Empire about it, we got back a simple, "No comment to make. It's just a vanquish."

We'll see if any Infamous players use it at West Coast Open (with or without tape).

So what do you think it is? Vanquish 2? New milling on the current Vanquish?

Damian Ryan just messing with us?

World Cup is right around the corner. Nice to get the intrigue started.

Edit: Would be nice to get a more ergonomic frame but it looks like that's not gonna happen.

The back cap of the marker looks different then the original vanquish. Doesn't seem to have as much as a slope as the current vanquish. Should be pretty interesting but it's not really KEEs style to release a new marker when the current vanquish is just over a year old.

That's actually just how much tape it takes for a vanquish to function properly.

yea looks like a more flowing to the body back cap and possibly slightly different lines since he tapped up the rest.

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.
