  • Which Paintball Guns can use HPA & Co2

    We often talk separately about the two pressure sources of high pressure air (HPA) and Co2. It’s become increasingly more common for paintball players to ask for a paintball gun that can use both propellants as opposed to just one.

    Today we’re going to address the question of “What paintball guns can use both HPA (High pressure air) and Co2?”

    Co2 & HPA

    Having a paintball gun that can operate on both HPA and Co2 will allow you to play on any paintball field. Generally, most sites will only use one propellant or the other so if you’re looking to try various fields it’s a good option to have a gun that can work with both, this will give you more freedom.

    However having a gun that can run on both HPA and Co2, you will need to own both types of paintball tanks, and then you need to consider the running costs for both tanks and what they can hold;

    HPA Tanks;

    HPA air tanks hold air that is under pressure but isn’t compressed down to a liquid form. The fill is measured by pressure using PSI (pounds per square inch), larger tanks that hold a higher volume of air will allow you to shoot more due to the increased volume, even though they may fill to the same PSI as a smaller tank. Air is a more commonly used source of pressure on paintball sites.

    Dye Core air tank 4500psi:

    These are small and very light, and the stainless steel core means you don't get any of the issues that can are associated with composite core based tanks. We recommend a Ninja Regulator to go on it for performance and reliability

    Co2 Tanks;

    Carbon dioxide tanks hold gas in CO2 liquid form. These come in various sizes such as 4oz, 12oz and 20oz (ounce). The tanks are designed to hold the ounces in weight as opposed to volume. It can be confusing but the measure that matters is the weight of the liquid. Your tank can be filled to the level your tank is rated for. Once upon a time Co2 was THE gas used for paintball, but these days more and more fields have converted over to using HPA because of the long term cost effectiveness, so CO2 isn't so common these days.

    Prefilled Co2 Tanks with Adaptor 

    This is ideal if you want to use your marker straight away. We would however only recommend these for low end markers.

    If you more information on the two pressure sources check out our blog post “The difference between Co2 & HPA air tanks”.

    Magfed v Hopper Fed

    Next you need to consider whether you want to play Magfed or Hopper fed. Traditional paintball is played with paintball guns fed by hoppers – paintball hoppers can hold around 200 paintballs.

    Magfed is becoming increasingly popular, here paintball guns are magazine fed rather than hopper fed. Generally those choosing Magfed are more tactical players due to ammo being limited – most magazines can only hold up to 20 paintballs.

    The guns below can use both HPA and Co2, but to help you out we have separated the guns into Magfed and Hopper fed options.
