What's The Azodin Kaos 2 Design
The design of the Azodin Kaos 2 is meant to ensure that the gun is easy-to-use, reliable, and durable. You do not need to have your first gun break when you fall on it. The Kaos 2 has a 12 inch single piece barrel, screw lock feedneck, 45 degree gas through grip, slim ASA, and uses a stainless steel hose. You also have the option of upgrading the stock barrel that comes with it because it does have auto cocker barrel threads, making a change to a different barrel simple.
What is also simple is the use of the Kaos 2 itself. When we say that it is great for beginners that is exactly what we mean. There is no learning curve with the Kaos 2. The design allows you to maintain the gun easily, while letting you still have a chance on the battlefield. The gun also does have an ergonomic grip to give you the stable platform you need to fire well. With the locking feedneck, you will prevent any chopped balls and keep yourself in the game. If you still wind up with a chopped ball, the Kaos 2 is designed to disassemble easily, allowing you to clean up and get back in the battle.
Azodin Kaos 2 Fire Power & Accuracy
The Kaos 2 has a 12 inch barrel, which gives it more accuracy than you will find in other starter paintball guns. It also uses the standard .68 caliber paintballs, where some of the other paintball markers use a smaller caliber. The standard size ensures that you have the same advantage to other players on the field. The Kaos 2 is not a quiet paintball gun, however, and it also has a lot of kick back when it is fired.
The Kaos 2 is described as being a mid-range shooter, meaning it has a good amount of fire power and still has a decent shooting distance considering its small size. As it is a starter gun, however, you might not need or want anything more powerful for your style of gameplay. It uses either CO2 or HPA to power it, but it is recommended that you use the HPA to ensure shot consistency and overall better performance. The gas thru grip also keeps your shots streamlined without any cords or cables getting in the way or making you a bigger target for your opponents. This semi-auto paintball gun will not disappoint you during battle, staying on par with higher end markers.
How Much Does Azodin Kaos 2 Weight
One of the biggest advantages of the Kaos 2 is that it is lightweight. Coming in at a mere 2.1 pounds, the Kaos 2 is lighter than competitors. This means the weight of the gun is not going to slow you down at all during battle, which is important, especially if you are just getting your feet wet. The biggest disadvantage to having a lightweight marker is that the sound is louder and it has a heavier recoil since there isn’t as much weight to absorb the kick. Regardless, at least you can guarantee this gun is not going to slow you down at all.
Is The Marker Reliable
The Kaos 2 is impressively reliable. Because the Kaos 2 has a pop-valve design that uses few moving parts and seals. The fewer mechanisms mean the fewer things that could go wrong during battle. The gun also only has one moving o-ring and six o-rings overall, which make the Kaos 2 less likely to leak gas or have trouble firing. In the event that something does happen and you have to take it apart on the battlefield, it is simple to take apart, clean, and even replace any faulty o-rings. It takes less than 5 minutes to completely breakdown the paintball marker.
How Efficient Is The Azodin Kaos 2
The Kaos 2 is not the most efficient paintball marker that you can get. It operates at a high pressure instead of a low pressure, which burns through the gas more quickly. The paintball marker comes with a CO2 canister, but reports have shown it is more consistent with high pressured air instead. You would need to get a HPA canister separately however. You might find that you burn through your gas more quickly with the Kaos 2 than other markers in a similar category. For paintballs it operates semi-automatically, meaning you get one shot for one trigger pull, keeping you from blowing through the paintballs too quickly.
Is The Marker Quiet
Unfortunately, the Azodin Kaos 2 is not a quiet paintball marker. Due to its small size and low weight, there is a lot of noise and kick back when the gun is fired. This makes it impossible to be stealthy on the battlefield, but you should be a little bit faster than opponents with a heavier gun. The tradeoff is that the gun is very inexpensive for a paintball marker and as a result some advantages are lost in the process, like sound and recoil. Depending on the type of game that you are playing, the sound may not be a concern at all, however.
Who Is The Azodin Kaos 2 Best For
The Azodin Kaos 2 is without a doubt one of the best entry-level paintball guns that you can get.
Ideal for beginners, the Kaos 2 is simple to operate, simple to take apart, and a budget-friendly price so that you are not putting out a lot of money when you are just getting started in the game. The reliability of the Kaos 2 will also take away any potential frustrations that you might have. It has a pop-valve design, meaning it does not have too many moving parts. Fewer parts mean fewer things that could malfunction. It is lightweight as well, allowing you to run easier and most likely faster than your opponents with a heavier gun.
If your style of play includes being stealthy or a sniper, this is not the right type of paintball marker for you. It is noisier than other markers and has a heavy recoil, meaning you cannot be stealthy. It is a mechanical marker so it works best for woodsball, but would not be ideal in a military simulation type of battle. Speedball uses electronic markers, so this is not the right choice if you are hoping to get into speedball.
Azodin Kaos 2 Final Overview
Overall if you are looking for a starter paintball marker and are getting into woodsball, the Azodin Kaos 2 would be an excellent choice. You cannot beat the efficiency nor the reliability, both of which are helpful for the beginning player. Advanced paintball players would most likely find the Kaos 2 to be fairly limited as it does not have rails for attachments and cannot be upgraded beyond the barrel. The loudness of the Kaos 2 also would not work for most of the intermediate to advanced players who intend to have more stealth to their gameplay. This is not a stealthy paintball marker, but it is lightweight, easy to use, and generally the ideal paintball gun for the starting paintball player.
The Kaos 2 is also simple to disassemble, repair, and to clean, which is especially important for beginners who are just figuring out how paintball markers should be cared for. Comparable markers, like the Tippmann 98 Cronus, are not as easy to breakdown and clean. If you have to breakdown your gun in battle, the simplicity of the gun is going to save you a lot of headache. Ultimately, the Azodin Kaos 2 is a wonderful choice for the entry paintball player.
