I don't know. For my personal play style, I can't justify it. I just can't imagine a situation where I would need the force feed. Been getting along fine without over the course of many SC markers. But that's just me, so YMMV.

I have recently been playing snake while pumping and while crawling my marker is always on its side. This would allow me to chamber a round without having to orient the marker to its normal shooting position.

Well it diddn't exist before. I saw where a ZetaMag-fed Phantom was not, and said 'No. This will not do.'

(Penny Arcade - The Hippothalamus)

And if in doing so, it gives someone else a new benefit or ability they did not have before, great! If 10-round tubes are all a player needs to rock out, cock out, and get you out, then maybe no need to change, and leave the Zetamags for those who fit into that niche.

For me, I see one of the benefits as being increased compatibility between markers. I haven't had a 10-round tube rig in many years, but I do have a pistol belt setup for my TiPX and zetamags. So for me the ability to just drop my TiPX and pick up any other gun in my arsenal and still be able to rock is a nice ability.

The other benefit is having a magfed pump gun for magfed events, that isn't a damn Hammer 7.

The last benefit is, I love my Phantom, I love my ZetaMags, and it's pretty badass to get to use them together. I think I may have actually mentioned that already in essence, but damn is it a good benefit.

I wouldn't even play at a mag-fed event that didn't allow a 10rnd tube feed pump gun. those are the OG Mag-fed guns.

as far as the "well" idea goes...keep cranking them out for other guns !


I don't agree that the mag well makes the gun " better" as now it wouldn't be allowed in a stockclass game...were the tube fed Phantom can play every format.

But what about all the modding potential?
How many people have managed to fit a phantom feedblock onto other markers?

2nd that
Wish someone would come up with a "universal" magwell
Odd that they come up with this for a Tracer without the benefit of using FS

Got one on my Nelly! I think the idea of the magwell is a nice one, but not a particularly practical one - literally the only benefit I can see (for me) for using one is that my teammates use TiPX's, so if I had the block in my kitbag I could always swap it out if we wanted to start flinging mags at each other left, right and center.

I'll probably buy one to have it. One day might be worth something as an oddity. I don't see a practical use for it, especially when 10Rd tubes are super cheap and easy to come by now days.
