Dye has finally done it!
If you have the Dye Assault Matrix you need to buy the Dye Box Rotor right now. Take a look at if on our website right now, or read this review, watch our review video and take a look later. It’s a little pricy at around $400—but you’ve already purchased the DAM and you really need this kind of capacity.
It’s a mag fed gamechanger.

You get a 325 round capacity and a bulky looking addition that screams M249. It looks cool and you might think that it would get in the way. It is huge—almost twice the size of a regular rotor.
In reality, once it is on the DAM, you really don’t notice the Dye Box Rotor’s size. It isn’t particularly heavy or cumbersome. We definitely thought it might be.
One of the huge advantages—beyond the 325 round capacity—is that the Box Rotor’s size does not add to your profile at all. Your shoulders aren’t going to extend past the box on either size and you don’t need to have a hopper to have a ton of paint accessible.
Without hopper bulk, the Box Rotor opens up possibilities for custom optics and attachments that you just can’t have with a hopper design. It will really bring a new approach to mag fed paintball.
Unless you get a Dye Assault Matrix that shipped very recently, there is a good chance that you need a new RF chip to make the Box Rotor work. That’s why Dye is shipping it with a new board for your DAM.
If you can’t figure out board issues for any reason or if you order a Box Rotor and it doesn’t have a new board for your DAM, you can give DYE a call and they will help you out. Eventually, these will ship without new boards.
There is also an upgraded bolt system that comes with the Dye Box Rotor. It adds functionality with first strike rounds. You can use the outside cam of an ironman bolt if you already upgraded, as the functionality is only added by a tip redesign that flares the tip out.
Instead of AA batteries, the Box Rotor uses a 1600mAh lithium battery and charger. You’ll have to make sure to keep it charged with the included wall brick and USB-style charger.
Is It Worth It?
The Box Rotor is completely worth it if you have a DAM or if you plan to get one.
There are several small features that really impress. A spring articulated loading system, for instance, helps improve tactical reloads by closing the Box Rotor off when it is removed from the marker. This presents paint spillage.
The Box Rotor is easily serviceable and disassembled. The internals are almost identical to the standard rotor and fairly straight forward. If you want a complete look at the inside, check out our video on YouTube.
