Choosing Paintball Firepower is Crucial in Winning the Battle Field

You may have the speed, the right strategies, and a well organized team but you need more than that when you go into a paintball battle field. You need fire power. You need the best paintball gun that you can get your hands on.

If you are aiming to win you have to examine the paintball guns closely when you purchase them.

The most important thing to consider when purchasing a paintball gun is its firing system, you can choose from an electro-pneumatic, mechanical, or gas powered firing system. Here’s how we differentiate these firing systems:


This firing system depends on an onboard battery which provides the electrical power which moves gears inside the paintball gun that will cock and fire the piston. This piston makes the blast that sends a paintball into the air towards its target.

The electropneumatic paintball guns are capable of multiple shots. You can choose from 3-shot bursts, or 6-shot bursts, or you can go fully automatic when going for an ambush or a chase.

The paintball guns under this class can rapidly shoot 300-900 paintball rounds per minute. They also do not just boast of the rapid fire power but also of velocities ranging from 200 to 400 feet per second which definitely can send someone squirming if hit by a single shot.

Mechanical Power

The mechanical firing system is also referred to as the spring type. Most of the guns under this class are single shot paintball guns. Most paintball gun users use a gun with a blowback system when using a spring powered gun. A blowback system uses the excess air to cock the gun for the next shot.

Fire power is not the name of the game for the mechanical or spring firing system since it is a notch lower compared to the electro-pneumatic. It fires with a velocity ranging from 200 to 275 feet per second. Not that great but it will still hurt.

Gas Powered

Paintball guns under this class use pressurized gases like propane or refrigerants like HFC134a to shoot paintballs.

Most of the gas powered paintball guns can be set to fire on automatic or semi-automatic mode since they also make use of a blowback system. The excess air which triggers the system is also used to re-cock the slide the fires the paintball.

Choosing the Right Gun

Now that you know about the firing systems that can eject paintballs in speeds that you can not imagine possible, you also have to consider the different sizes, configurations, designs, styles, and the cost.

You have to consider how you will move around the field when you carry a gun. You also have to consider the type of game that you usually engage in.

As a paintball enthusiast you can choose from pistols to semi-automatics and fully automatics. Pistols are usually used as a back-up gun when something goes wrong with your main weapon. You can opt for long paintball firearms that you can switch from automatic to semi-automatic as your main weapon. These guns will serve you good for running assaults and attacking your opponents’ home base.

Buying a gun also depends on the budget that you can spend. You can get a gun for as low as $100 but can also find the best of the best at around $1000 minimum.

Knowing that you have the right gun fire power somehow boosts your confidence in the field. It also makes winning a lot easier and sweeter.
