The BT Apex is a barrel that adjusts how the paintball spins as it comes out of your marker, allowing it to have increased range at the expense of accuracy. You can make the ball spin up, down, left, or right, at 9 different degrees of spin for each (1 being the lowest and 9 being the highest). Upward spin will give the ball a "flat" trajectory and cause it to go in a straight line, improving your range. Downwards spin will cause the ball to go straight for a certain period of time then swerve downwards suddenly. The left and right spin will cause the ball to go straight then swerve to the left or right, respectively. The adjustable amount of spin (the 1-9 meter) will cause the ball to fly further based on how high you set it when it is set to upward spin, and how long it will fly before it swerves in the down, left, and right spin settings (9 causing it to swerve after a short distance, and 1 after a while).

If you want more information I would suggest reading reviews of it on a place like pbreview or any paintball forum.

you do not get any additional useable range out of the apex or likewise the flatline, what happens is the paintball does go further but at the "additional range" the paint is flying so slowly due to the backspin that it will bounce off whatever it hits, dont believe the companies when they tell you you will be able to hit people at further distances, it is not true, you can adjust the trajectory of the shot but not the range

What is a bt apex barrel what does it for paintballing?

The Apex barrel is BT's upgrade to the Tippman Flatline barrel. It allows the shooter to "curve" the ball around or "dive bomb" over the top of bunkers by putting a spin on the ball. It also will allow the shooter to get extra distance out of a shot by putting a back spin on the ball. How the it works is the tip of the barrel has a ridge that gives the ball a spin like a curve ball or a spin on a ping pong ball. You can get the same effect by turning a Flatline on the side.

It depends on the threads of the Apex barrel. If the threads are that of a autococker, A5, or spyder then no, it will not fit. Though if it does have Tippmann threads then by all means it will fit.
