If you’re new to paintballing or just finding out about it for the first time, you need to get the best paintball guns. If you look online, you can find literally thousands of different options to choose from but the problem is that most of them are not worth the money. The problem with most paintball gear is that the better manufacturers make only a few items and those products are usually of very high quality. At the same time, the more popular companies are making the same items for much less. Here’s how you can find the best paintball guns for your budget and your level of play.
Right off the bat, you need to decide what type of play style you want to have. There are basically two types: speedball and woodsball. Both play styles are fun to play but speedball involves far more moving around while woodsball is more about strategy and planning. At the same time, you need to consider what kind of terrain your play on because if you’re playing on concrete, then speedball paintball guns won’t work as well as those for woodsball players.
Next, you need to think about what size of barrel of your paintball gun should have. Bigger barrels can shoot farther than smaller ones, which can be important if you plan on playing on a terrain like woods. Also, the velocity of paintballs fired from a larger barrel will be greater so if you plan on playing on faster terrain, then you’ll need to get a bigger barrel. Lastly, CO2 guns are better than airsoft guns for a couple reasons: compressed air doesn’t travel as far and co2 has a lot of power, which means you’ll be able to fire shots further.
