Azodin Blitz 3 Vs Kaos 2
To begin with, we will quickly say that the Azodin Blitz 3 Vs Kaos 2 is probably not an apples-to-apples comparison. The Blitz 3 is a proven electronic gun while the Kaos 2 is a bare bones mechanical gun. But, since you are probably deciding between these two guns, for whatever reason, we will give you as best a comparison as we possibly can!
To begin with, let’s talk about price. The Kaos 2 has a sub $100 price. The Blitz 3 is under $160. Whether you spend the extra $60 or so to get the electronic version will depend on how much paintball you intend to play. If you are an occasional weekend warrior, the Kaos 2 will probably be enough for now. But, if you intend to be a regular paintball player, the Blitz 3 is probably a much wiser choice as it won’t leave you craving for an upgrade for at least a few months or maybe even a year.
Now, let’s list out all the quick differences. Since the Kaos 2 is a mechanical gun, there’s no firing mode choices. You pull the trigger, you fire. Even if you have the fastest fingers out there, you are looking at a max BPS or balls per second range of about 7 to 8 at most. The Blitz 3 in auto mode can rain 25 balls per second, as long as you have an electronic feeder feeding balls to meet that BPS rate. But, with the Kaos 2, there’s an upside to having a low BPS. If you are new to paintball or are still learning the ropes of the game, you will probably waste a ton of paint with a gun that shoots quickly. Having a low BPS will mean that you aim harder and focus on actually making your shots count.
The Blitz 3 however gives you a semi auto mode, a PSP ramp, Millennium Ramp, Semi and even a programmable mode, allowing you to toggle between the modes to find a BPS rate that will best suit the particular paintball scenario you are in.
The Kaos 2 is also pretty loud when you fire off a paintball. While the Blitz 3 isn’t what you will call a quiet shooter either, the Kaos 2 is quite noisy in comparison. As long as you play with beginners of the same caliber as you, you should be OK. But, with either of these guns, particularly the Kaos 2, pros will pick you out in seconds, as your shot will give away your position. Only guns that cost upwards of $300 usually give you a quiet shot.
The trigger on the Blitz 3 is obviously much better than the one on the Kaos 2. The Blitz 3 uses a Scythe trigger that is pretty sensitive and very, very easy to engage. The Kaos 2 isn’t difficult to press either, but it will definitely result in more finger fatigue than the Blitz 3. But then, the Kaos 2 is a mechanical marker and the trigger can’t really do much when it is not supported by an electronic board.
When it comes to barrel length, the Kaos 2 has a surprising edge over the Blitz 3. It is one of very few sub $100 guns that is equipped with a 12 inch barrel as opposed to the 11 inch or even shorter barrels that you usually find in cheaper guns. We would say that the Kaos 2 is a wee bit more accurate than the Blitz 3, because of the slightly longer barrel.
Azodin Blitz 3 Vs Kaos 2 Conclusion?
As we said earlier, this isn’t exactly an apples-to-apples comparison. Which gun is better for you will depend on your budget and intended usage. If you are going to be the occasional paintball player that is looking for a reliable and decently powered mechanical gun, the Kaos 2 is a great gun, especially with its sub $100 price point.
But, if paintball is growing on you and you see yourself playing more and more, we definitely recommend the Blitz 3 for it will give you one of the best budget electronic paintball markers out there!
