Yes all guns accept HPA, but you cannot use co2 with certain electric markers. If you have a mechanical marker like a tippmann or spyder, make sure to get a high pressure tank

For a paintball rifle is CO2 better than compressed air?

No compressed air would be better for accuracy as well as your gun. Its like co2 but at a higher pressure with cleaner air and no liquid that can damage your paintball marker.

On paintball guns What do the CO2 Systems do and why do you need them?

On a paintball gun C02, or High pressure air is necessary. It is compressed air that, when the trigger is pulled and the marker fires, propels the paintball out of the barrel.

Is a compressed air paintball gun the same as a CO2 paintball gun?

Yes. High pressure Air tanks (HPA) is compressed air, which is mostly Nitrogen. "Nitro" is not what HPA they are called, unless you are talking about Nitrous oxide, which is used in anesthetics and motor racing.

Why do you need CO2 tank for paintball?

If you meant "why do you need any gas tank for Paintball": the expanding c02 or hpa is what pushes the ball out of the barrel at high speeds and can be used in reseting the gun. If you meant "why you need a C02 tank specifically": you dont need a co2 tank to play paintball. their is compresed air tankes available. most electrical guns must run on air enless you want to be doing maintenance on the gun after every game and replace parts after 5 games. most non electrical guns also can be ran on air but is capable of runing on co2 but air would keep your gun in better condition. You need co2 or compressed air(nitrogen and compressed air are the same thing) so the paintball can fly out of the barrel and to re cock your gun automatically.

Is a paintball gun a pneumatic device?

Yes. Paintball guns are definitely pneumatic. They run on compressed gas, Co2/Compressed air, and use the release of that gas to power the mechanics inside and propel the paintball forward toward a target.Information provided by Bullit Paintball teamcaptian: Nolan M.

NO! only compressed air in a high end marker. otherwise you run the risk of freezing the regulator and solenoid which equals repairs. NO CO2!

No. Nerf guns always use springs to pressurize a small amount of air in a small plastic tube, where paintball guns have a highly compressed air or co2 tank in steel or carbon fiber tank.

What is a hopper and a tank from paintball?

A hopper is like a holder a hopper usually holds 180-200 paintballs, a hopper feeds paintballs down into the chamber of your gun were the bolt can force it out the barrel. I strongly recomend you invest some money in a good electronic hopper. A tank holds air which is like food for your paintball gun, it is used to operate all the parts in your gun, there are three types of air used in a paintball gun there is co2, which is not good for your gun because it might freeze your gun up and god forbid u might get frost bite but is rare, there is compressed air which is the best for your gun, then there is nitrogen which is better then co2 but worse then compressed air.

Can a raven primal paintball gun run on co2?

It can if the CO2 tank you have is anti-siphoned, but your taking a risk. It is best to run the marker on HPA (compressed air, Nitro, whatever you want to call it.) The CO2 could ruin the solenoid.
