The In-line Bolt System and the Composite Body

The in-line bolt system is thought to be very reliable, helping users to enjoy the game more. The composite body has been made so that it’s high-impact and lasts a long time.

What this means is that if you drop it or it gets hit by a paintball it’s unlikely that it will become damaged. This means you can get on and enjoy the game without worrying too much about your paintball marker.

The Tippmann Cronus also comes with soft over-molded grips. This ensures that once you have a hold of it you won’t have to worry about the paintball marker gun slipping out your hands quite so much.


It also means that your hand and fingers feel as if they are molded to the marker. In other words, you can continue to play the game no matter what is happening on the field.

This feature also allows you to get used to the exciting game of paintball if you’re new to it.

The Price and Modifying the Gun

The price of this paintball marker gun is good when you consider how much you get for your money. While the price is quite low, you do get a lot out of this gun each time you use it.

You won’t have to worry too much about whether you purchased the right paintball marker. You can get on with the game in hand and enjoy all that it has to offer.

When it comes to modifying the gun, this marker can easily be modified by mounting some accessories on one of the picatinny rails. The good news is there are 4 rails to choose from which means you can add a lot of accessories.

This means you can add and remove the accessories at any time you wish. You can, therefore, enjoy your match on a whole new level and add and remove the accessories you need.

The Barrel and Trigger

The barrel is 9 inches long which means you are much more likely to hit your targets no matter how far away they are. When you are likely to hit your targets you’re much more likely to win your matches.

While the barrel is not the longest out there, it is a decent length. You might even be able to hit targets that you wouldn’t be able to hit with other paintball markers.

This is one of the reasons why the Tippmann Cronus is a better marker than some of the others out there. It’s also one of the reasons why many people are happy to purchase this marker even though it was designed for beginners.

The trigger that comes with this paintball marker gun is manual but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. This is because the handle on the marker comes with an ergonomic design that makes the trigger easy to reach.

When it comes to pulling the trigger, it’s not too difficult, this is especially as the Tippmann Cronus is ideal for those playing paintball for the first time. What this means is that it isn’t too hard to use and should help you get a real feel for the game.

The Air Capability and the Shot

You know you need to be able to fire those paintballs quickly and easily. When using this paintball gun, you will be pleased to know that you have a choice between CO2 and HPA.

You will, therefore, have a better chance of finding out what works well for you. This can help you to personalize your game play and your matches to a whole new level.

Changing between power sources is relatively easy, but you’ll have to make sure you have used all the CO2 of HPA up so you don’t get any leakages. However, when you find the right power source for you, you know that your game is as good as it can be.

When it comes to the shot it works very well, especially as this is a marker that has been made for those just starting out at paintball. This is because the marker is very easy to hold and there is very little recoil.

This allows you to keep playing during the whole match, as you’re unlikely to feel that the marker is unbalanced. It also ensures you can get on with the game in hand without having to worry about handling the paintball marker when the going gets tough.

You can play the game and get on with hitting all of those targets and ensuring you don’t get hit.

You won’t need to worry about the gun feeling uncomfortable or irritated while you play. This makes a real change from some of the more expensive paintball guns out there that are quite hard to hold and carry around with you.

Ideal for use, even outside when the weather is raining, this could be the marker gun you need if you have had issues with other markers in the past. You can keep on playing as much as you need to, whatever the weather is doing.

The Dimensions

The Tippmann Cronus weighs just 3.7 pounds and it measures 17 x 13.x x 3.3 inches. This marker is relatively easy to carry with you while you are playing matches.
