It's a faulty o-ring in the bolt assembly, just unscrew the back to pull out the entire bolt assembly, and find the o-ring that is either old and stiff, or the one that is severed or destroyed. Be sure to apply lube after. And also be sure to clean the gun after every 6 hours of use or so by cleaning all the grease and dirt off the bolt assembly, with either a cotton towel or a microfiber, and only using water if you need to use something to help, don't use chemicals, it's eats away at the o-rings. The gun should work after all this

Don't forget to change your batteries as well.

And I realize this was a post from 2 years ago, but I'm answering it correctly in the case someone is having this problem and googles it to find a solution, because shockers are still great guns.

My paintball wont stop shooting but it has nothing to do with the co2 tank help?

The sear is not catching the bolt and resetting it properly. Or, there is not enough air pressure to push the bolt back to its original position. I would take it to a gunsmith. Parts fly out of a Tippmann if you open it up.

I am a paintballing novice, should I try to play with players that are more experienced than me?

There are no set rules about this, however you should be aware that experienced paintballs will not be sensitive to your inexperience and may exploit this, you are better to stick to your own level of experience.

The paintballs just fall straigt out of the gun or shots like 5 at a time

The part that is bad Tippmann calls a "ball latch". It's a small orange rubber part that keeps the ball in place before the marker is fired. The parts is inexpensive it is common in most paintball stores or can be found online at

I highly recommend taking this paintball marker to a local pro shop to have the part replaced. You can service this marker at home but is not easy to put together if you have experience working on then, they have a few springs under tention that make it tough to put back together. If you are interested in doing the repair yourself I highly recommend doing it on on a clean floor in a clean room so when you disassemble it it will be easier to find the springs that could shoot out.

One thing that will make it easier is to leave the feedneck on. It will keep one less spring from jumping out at you, just a tip from a pro. I also highly recommend not using a spray lubricant and to only use oils in you tippmann made for paintball guns.

My gun wont shoot. Ill **** it once and it will fire a dead shot then not recock

Time to lube (oil) the gun. A few drops of oil in the inlet hole (where you screw on your tank) should do and then dry fire the gun. If no luck you may need to tear down the gun and clean and lube the internals.
Here is your manual.

I have a semi auto alpha black. When im firing on semi auto sometime the gun switches quickly to fully auto and releases lots of CO2 without really shooting any paintballs

Does this only happen when you're low on air? Also, make sure you're using a good paintball oil for lubrication and make sure the marker is clean. It's possible for an o-ring to leak, or once it gets cold to leak, so make sure you use the proper o-ring for the proper location (lots of them look alike so keep them labeled and bagged separately).

Good luck!

My alpha black paintball gun is shooting 1 to 5 then stopping.

Sounds like it needs to be oiled. A couple of drops in the small hole where your bottle screws on.
Replace bottle and dry fire to see if you got it. Cleaning is just as important. Internals need to be cleaned
and lubed often. I know it's late but hope it helps someone.
