We're Back!!!

From 1999 to 2004 Adrenaline was the premiere manufacturer of high-end paintball guns. To this date, no production gun has sold for more than Adrenaline guns did in the early 2000s and most still sell between $500 and $1000 on eBay nearly 20 years later. 

In December of 2017 we attended the Southern Classic using $175 mechanical guns. While nice, we felt that it wasn’t enough for teams trying to compete at the top level with mechanical markers cheaper than some of the pants players were wearing. We decided to make our own gun from scratch on the drive home. Fortunately, a few weeks later we heard that Shocker Paintball was making a mechanical shocker with a pivot type trigger. We decided to wait.

In March of 2018 we began testing various modifications to the Shocker CVO and Shocker XLS platforms. We massive support from various Facebook groups for we decided to make the first Adrenaline gun since our Impulse debut over 16 years ago. With massive modifications and a year from initial design to shipment we are ready to release the 2019 Adrenaline Shocker CVO and XLS.

Players will soon be getting their hands on the first units. As players, we always focus on player input. In 2000 we sponsored a split-off Ironmen team (known as Dave’s Ironmen) featuring a rookie 16-year-old named Oliver Lang. That team went on to win almost everything shooting Adrenaline Angels. Due to the success, the Ironmen moved on to a bigger deal than we could offer in 2001. So we picked up a different team, Ground Zero, which had no previously had major success despite being a well established pro team. That year, shooting Adrenaline Angel LCDs, they won a ton of events, including the first event they used our guns, the L.A. Open, and finished as World Champs (over the Ironmen).

For 2019, we’re happy to welcome NXL Pro Team Seattle Thunder to the Adrenaline Family. We sure hope our tech and their drive and talent will equal a lot of Sundays for them this season in the NXL Pro Division. We are also welcoming two of the most successful mechanical teams of 2018, the Saberwolves and Farside to the Adrenaline family. Both will be shooting Adrenaline Shockers (CVO and XLS) at all events this year.

The last two seasons we sponsored teams was 2000 and 2001 and both years our teams became World Champs. We are looking forward to seeing if we can keep the streak alive. Although it almost seems like cheating based upon our track record, it’s just lots and lots of R&D and LOVE put into these guns combined with the right players representing our company. We hope you become one as well.
