They are the same thing, just different ways of calling it. Players will most likely call them Markers because that is their proper name. But gun works either way. The creation of the term marker was designed to indicate that a paintball marker is not designed to be a weapon.

Nothing. A paintball gun is referred to as a marker so as not to convey a message that paintball is dangerous or markers are weapons.

What is the difference between a marker and a paint ball gun?

They are the same thing. "marker"is the preferred term used when talking to non-paint ballers.

At paintball fields either term is fine, though older players will probably correct you.
