How many shots can I get from my paintball tank?

SHOTS PER TANK

Here is a table that shows estimated shots you can get from your CO2 or compressed air paintball tank. These amounts are representing a standard outdoor environment with a temperature of 20º C. Additional conditions apply, which are listed at the bottom of the page.

  • The colder the temperature becomes with both CO2 and HPA, the fewer shots per tank you will get. This is because the tank pressure drops when the temperature decreases. Low pressure means you will need more volume of gas for every shot, therefore, efficiency decreases. 
  • The other factor is the firing velocity setting on your marker. More gas will be used when setting for higher velocities, which reduces the shots per tank, obviously.
  • Different markers experience different efficiency rates. Consult your marker's manual (or another source of info) for more specific information.
