5 of 5 Best Woodsball Marker December 28, 2018
Reviewer: Jordan Espenant from Whitecourt, AB Canada  
The Empire DFender is hands down the best woodsball gun on the market! The back load hopper is fantastic, adding a slimmer profile to the marker, while taking away pesky hopper hits. Gun shoots in Semi-Auto, Burst, Full Auto and also Ramp. This gun can also hold its own on the speedball field! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a top line woodsball marker!

5 of 5 Work better than expected December 10, 2018
Reviewer: Kris from Dallas,TX  
Play against some other players with Dye Dam with box mag and has zero issues. Multiple people with Dye Box mag was breaking paint the dfender did not brek a single ball out of 2000 rounds in a cold day below 45.  Its a perfect suppprt weapon with team style play or a single person who has to hold a defensive position.  It is also quite compare to other markers.  Easy to carry with full load and 45ci carbon tank.  Can not wait till next scenario game.

5 of 5 Best Gun On The Market(Woodsball) August 20, 2018
Reviewer: Austin Mest from Macungie, PA United States  
Seriously, this is the easiest gun to use on the market. If you’re someone like me who only has woodsball courses around this gun will be your saving grace..honestly one of the best guns I’ve had and it’s by far my favorite. You don’t have to tinker with anything on the gun at all and it’s pretty much maintenance free. I’ve had this one for around 3 years and have only cleaned the outside of it and it’s been through hell and back. It out ranges most guns and with the hopper being in the rear it’ll give you more field of view as well as a fast trigger response. In my 3 years with the dfender not once has it ever jammed on me or caused any problems what so ever. Honestly for the price and if your not playing any speedball courses this is by far the best gun on the market today.

5 of 5 Best scenario marker August 11, 2018
Reviewer: Eloy Martinez from El Centro, CA United States  
Amazing marker. I have been using this marker for over a year now and i have not had any issues with it. Love the engineering in this marker with the built in hopper clears line of sight. Air efficiency is excellent, giving you a lot of shooting per tank. Maintenance on this marker is fast and easy, no tools needed. Owning this marker will give you a lot of compliments at the field.

5 of 5 INSANE GUN/MARKER April 24, 2018
Reviewer: Wyatt from Illinois  
I didn’t buy mine through ANS but i have bought multiple items from them and I highly recommend ANS‭. I bought the DFender used and it’s my favorite gun yet. I’ve owned a mini, an axe, a tipx, a sniper pump, and a gtek and this is the most fun fun yet. HIGHLY RECOMEND getting this gun. I just wish they made and sold other speed feeds. (The prophecy speed feeds don’t work with this gun)
