"Air", "Compressed air", "High Pressure air", "nitrogen", "N2" and "Nitro" are all the same gas, these are just different nicknames for it. The correct term is High Pressure Air, or HPA. Since air is mostly Nitrogen, it is given other names. The Air also contains CO2, but in paintball Co2 is separated pure liquid Carbon-dioxide, which is incompatible with HPA tanks and guns.

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.
