It depends on where your backyard is. If it's your backyard and you are in a rural area, you should be OK. But if you are in a less rural area, there may be laws against discharging projectile weapons like BB guns, arrows, and paintball guns.

Can you shoot a paintball gun in your yard in new york?

its a marker, not a gun. So technically if there are gun laws they don't apply to paintball markers. Now if there were laws against painting, then no you couldn't. But then again the paintballs have biodegradeable stuff in them and are not considered paint. Are you trying to ask if you can expel dishsoap in your yard with a dishsoap marker? That's what it sounds like to me.
