How to Choose a Gun for Your Paintball Position
Like any other sport, players on a paintball team have different roles.
For front paintball players, accuracy is a must. Find a paintball marker that allows you to mount the air supply bottle so it can be used as a stock. If you do not want to mount your air supply, choose a remote air hose for decreased weight and mobility.
Cover players shoot lots of rounds—they need a large air supply bottle system. Look for a system that allows you to unload and load the bottle quickly. Utility players should opt for a large air supply bottle to mount on the gun.

Give Your Shots an Extra Kick
Don't let well-aimed shots fall short. Pressure or propulsion systems deliver the air your gun needs to propel a paintball. All CO2 tanks are shipped unfilled, due to shipping restrictions. The tank size determines the rounds a player is able to shoot.
Carbon dioxide, or CO2, is the most common pressure system. The main drawback of this system is that carbon dioxide can be either liquid, gas or both, depending on temperature. Temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit can cause fluctuations in velocity and shooting inaccuracy.
High-pressure air and nitrogen systems always operate as a gas—so your paintball marker will not be compromised by temperature changes. These systems provide game-changing consistency, so serious players should consider this option.
