Guys, and new on Paintball. Before I began reading and understandig Paintball, I decided to buy a Marker and the one like me the most was the MR2. It hans arrived yet to my home since I leave in Venezuela and it can take several days to arrive.

The thing is: Now I finally understood what scenario is and what speedball is. Well, the thing is that where I live, there are only speedball fields.

Then, My question for you guys: CAN THE MR2 BE USED / USEFULL in speedball scenarios???????????????????????? If one want to use it in Speedball fields, one should remove the stock or it can be used maybe being a STOPPER????????

Please, your comments are important since I havent even played once and it seems that playing speedballs are my only option.

I have read in order forums that it can be used in speedball mode, but I believe that in this forum might be more specialized users of the MR2. Read at:

Thanks alot.

well the mr2 can keep up with alot of speedball guns, but, it is a little on the heavy side. so if that answers anything then good. if you have more questions or i did not respond with the right answer than tell me and ill try to help

Thanks for your prompt response. Would you recommend removing the stock while playing speedball?????????? a remote would help?????? Im not a fast guy and I dont pretend be a running guy while playing speedball. I heard that the MR2 is great for STOPPER players. What do you think??????


Mav, and thx alot once again.

removing the stock is just a personal preference. as of me, i like the stock (it helps me aim better) yes a remote would help ALOT!!!! it takes a little bit of weight off of the back of the gun. as for stopper players i think its good

any gun can be used for woodsball or speedball. the player makes the gun. I woulda suggested getting a regular spyder, such a tlx or a victor 2.

Although I like how the stock looks, you will probably find that you will want to remove it for speedball. I don't play speedball (can't afford to shoot that much paint) I would think a shorter gun would be better to quickly move the gun from one side to the other when shooting around bunkers. Go ahead and try it both ways though. And yes I would think it would work fine in speedball. As stated above it is a tad on the heavy side but nothing that can't be handled. It fires at a good rate in semi-auto so as others say, its the player not the gun that wins games.

I use the MR2 at my local speed ball field. It runs good and keeps up with the higher preformace markers with the added bonus of being able to be drop kicked and not brake. Though because of the weight of the gun i would suggest keeping the stock off and using smaller Co2 (or going to the carbon fiber Hight Pressure Air Tanks). That way it wont feel like your running a bolling ball down field :)

Cheers

I use my MR2 for scenario and speed ball, though I dont have all i want for speedball, it works better then i hoped. Just gotta strip it down to lighten it up. Not the best setup in the world by far, but its mine. :P

Maybe try a barrel plug?

that looks ugly though, and for me my plug made it hard to cock the gun.

Kotsuumo - looks pretty decent for speedball, but if I could make a suggestion, you might get a drop or rail that would make your tank more on the level instead of jutting down at an angle. You can lower the height at which your gun sits, and your loader won't be poking above your head.

My shocker had a crazy angled drop when I first bought it, and once I got a rail and asa, it sat a lot tighter and more comfy.

Like these guys said, you can use the Spyder for speedball, ESPECIALLY if you strip it down. I wouldn't necessarily suggest getting another gun right now for speedball, especially since you just started so this one should work ok for you. Have fun and enjoy it - that's the most important thing!

well, i plan on getting a Smart Parts Angle Drop with matching bottom line asa, but then id have to get some new air lines, and im afraid to mess with that stuff.

hello, for the MR-2 i have tried both woods and speed with stock and without, i found in woods stock is great but in speed if your attacking dont use it it slows you down and gets in the way of those tight shots but if your gonna hang back in speed ball you can use a stock if your playing tail but if your playing attacker then you mineaswelll take the stock off, but for woods im all for stock.

Hey, i use my mr2 for speed ball, all u need is to take off the stock and use hpa along with an electro loader, the sppedball guys dont expect u to be able to rip paint like that with a spider, neverminda mil. sim. gun.
