Review: Kush Nation Armory KR2 Scenario Rocket

Kush Nation Armory KR2 Scenario Rocket

Anyone who knows anything about us at Hustle Paintball knows that we love our Metadyne Havoc Launchers. From scenario play to generally just shooting stuff, the Havoc Launcher is a great way to add in a little bit of artillery to a mil-sim game, particularly one that uses tanks or destroyable scenario bits. Even though the launcher is pretty terrific, it does have one little problem; it lacks dedicated ammunition. While most players have been able to shape small Nerf finned footballs down into something that works, a specially designed “rocket” would really be a step up. That’s where Kush Nation Armory comes in with the KR2 Scenario Rocket, designed to give Havoc Launcher fans a high-quality piece of ammunition to get the most out of both their launcher and their paintball game.

The Barrel Break: Sticker Your Pods

This week with the Barrel Break, we’ve got another common problem with an easy solution; this time, it concerns your pods. We’ve all been there, in the middle of a firefight, when our marker starts shooting blanks. We reach into our belt, pull out another pod, pop it open, and drain it into our hopper, ready to get back into the fray as soon as the last paintball drops in. But what about your pod? Nobody wants to waste valuable seconds putting it back in their harness (and risk accidently pulling up a blank when you have to reload again), so you chuck the pod off to the side. A sound strategy, sure, but when the round ends, finding exactly which paintball pod is yours becomes a bit of hassle; remember, you’re sharing a field with a bunch of other players who all had the exact same idea. To make sure that you get all your pods back, the solution is actually pretty simple; put some stickers on it. If you’d like to hear AJ explain more, you can check out the video here.

Gargoyle II Crowdfunding Campaign

gargoyle II

 Today, we’ve actually got something a little different on the blog for you guys, and it all starts with a single man back in 2009 and his wonderfully iconic stock-class marker.  Rodney Neal decided that he wanted to create a new concept in pump paintball markers and, after an incredible journey, he made the Gargoyle as well as the Rembember the Ronin company. Now, the company’s trying to break the mold again with the Gargoyle II, a completely crowd-funded project that’s the first in paintball history. But why should you fund this marker yourself? You can watch the full video here, or you can read on for a little bit of a review.

The Barrel Break: Read Your Manual

It happens to everybody and on every marker; at the worst possible time in a paintball match, you’re unable to shoot, your marker is making weird noises, and you’re really not quite sure what to do. You’ve tried everything you can think of, but still you’re having trouble tracing the problem back to its source. The solution is so simple that even suggesting it sounds like an insult; if you want to fix most of the problems associated with your marker, whether it’s electropnumatic or mechanical, your best bet is to read your manual. If you’d like AJ to spell it out for you, you can check out the video here.
