Look no further since the Azodin Blitz 3 paintball marker will get you covered. This model incorporates high tech features that you will rarely find in other markers within the same budget range. Moreover, it incorporates a lot of improvement from its earlier predecessors that you will definitely going to love.
To mention briefly, the Azodin Blitz 3, is a .68 caliber paintball marker with lightweight composite construction for easy maneuverability. The marker is compatible with both HPA and CO2 and can fire up to 20bps at its maximum. These features makes this marker the best choice for entry level players that want to advance to intermediate level with time.
In this Paintballaudit review, we have comprehensively analyzed the main features of the Blitz 3 and the fun they bring, its strength and weakness and lastly what makes it the best choice for entry-level players.
Lightweight built design
The Azodin blitz 3 is lightweight built for comfort and easy handling. It weighs about 2.05 pounds which is a great improvement from its earlier version that gave many players a lot of handling problems. This attribute is a very big plus to paintball starters since they can easily maneuver in the field fast and comfortably aim at their target without dragging unnecessary weight.
The outer frame is strongly built from composite material that includes a nylon frame and a braided airline galvanized with steel. This gives it a striking rigid appearance that looks so appealing to the eye. Moreover, the marker comes in 6 different arrays of colors to choose from.
Improved New Feather Regulator
The Azodin Blitz 3 is compatible with both CO2 and HSA thanks to the new feather technology that utilizes a more advanced piston with an integrated seat. This regulator includes a stainless steel nozzle that draws in clean air which is a great combination that makes it highly efficient on air and also saves on additional cartridge expense. It is important to note that the new regulator comes preset to operate at 400 PSI. This is quite a disadvantage to players especially those playing intermediate level and would prefer this provision to be adjustable for better efficiency depending on different needs.
High Tech Zen Board
The Zen board is yet another improvement that is included in this marker to ensure its buttons are faultless. This was very common problem with Blitz 1 and 2. With the new circuit improvement, the Azodin Blitz 3 is now more user friendly for paintball starters since they can feel the electronic buttons whenever it is pressed without checking if the LED light is lit.This switch board includes 4 different firing mode that are very easy to operate. These include; the CFOA semiauto and PSP Ramp that both fire at rate of 10.2 bps, the Millenium Ramp mode at 15bps, and lastly the semiauto mode which is the highest at 20bps.
As a beginner player, you don’t have to worry about injuries since, the Zen board includes a safety mode that keeps the gun locked when its not active thereby preventing accidental firing. With this feature you can rest assured of your safety whenever you are handling this marker.

What makes Azodin Blitz 3 the Best Entry Level Marker?
As discussed in the features section above, the Azodin Blitz 3 has incorporated a lot of improvements to make it more user friendly by rectifying faults from complaints raised from the earlier version. These mainly include the Zen switchboard that ensures the electronic buttons is fully functional and limiting the need of checking whether the LED button is lit.

Moreover, this provision makes this marker compatible with both compressed air and carbon dioxide gas.

In addition it is lighter meaning that won’t affect movement and aiming thereby making it the best choice that paintball starters can use to up their game.
Despite the new improvements that makes Azodin Blitz 3 the best entry level marker for beginners, there are still pending issues with it the main one being the screw-lock feed-neck. Actually, many players prefer the clamping feed-neck which is more effective than the later. However, we can also have a look at this issue different where the screw-lock feed-neck is far much better that the twist-lock feed-neck that was common in Blitz 1 and 2
Azodin 3 is quite noisier and has little recoil
When compared to some other entry level markers, the Azodin Blitz 3 is limited to only a few features. The only option you may have to further improve its performance is attaching more features through upgrades. This is not only expensive but there are very few upgrades options that are compatible with this model. This is a very big issue to funs that would love to make the Blitz 3 more personal.
Lastly, the Azodin Blitz 3 marker is quite noisier and has little recoil. However, these aren’t much when compared some markers. These faults are attributed to Stack-tube Blowback that draws in a lot of air to blow back the bolt. However; both noise and recoil can be rectified at a cost by adding the Zero Recoil Operating System by Azodin.
If you are new in paintball and searching for a highly efficient low budget marker with high firing rate, the Azodin Blitz 3 paintball gun is the best choice that you should consider. With it, you can fire in 4 different mode the highest being 20bps. This marker is built to last therefore you don’t have to worry about breaking it and it’s very easy to maneuver around since it very light.
