The new Empire Axe 2.0 is going to be a very affordable tournament marker for those looking to get into tournament paintball without spending an upwards of $1,000 on a gun. For only $424.95 you will be getting the tried and trusted Axe marker platform with many updated features from its previous versions. Empire Axe 2.0s are expected to start shipping late March!
The owner of Punishers Paintball will be shooting an Axe 2.0 in the National X-Ball League events this year playing for the Punishers Factory Team. He will be using the Axe 2.0 to test how well it will hold up playing in National Paintball Events. We are very interested to see how well it works for us!
The Axe 2.0 is a great choice of marker for entry to mid level players, even for veteran players this marker is a great choice. I expect it to perform very well, and for the price you really cannot go wrong with this marker. Even if the Axe 2.0 has any problems at all, Empire is known for their great customer service. Anytime you have a problem you can always call Empire and ask them about it, worst case you can send it in to them and they will fix it for you!
So overall I will be giving this marker an 8/10
Mainly I am giving this an 8/10 for the price point and it being the Axe marker platform. I will be updating the rating as we start using it on the field and really know the limits of a $425 tournament marker!
