No More Empty Tanks!
Ending up with an empty CO2 tank in paintball is a stressful experience. When compressed air starts to run out as the enemy team rushes in for the kill, it is a heartbreaking situation. Some of the best ways to avoid this all-too-familiar error in battle is to simply bring a spare tank and make sure it is full.
Carrying an extra CO2 tank around might seem a little arduous at first. However, it is best to come into a gun fight prepared for any setbacks. Just as easily as a paintball warrior can lug around extra paintball canisters, extra CO2 tanks in a pack or utility belt ensures that the weapon continues firing until its owner or the opponent gets splattered.
A lot of models for CO2 tanks are professionally crafted to go through multiple games before finally reaching empty. Before setting out on a tournament, it is greatly advised to research the most spacious tanks for the paintball gun purchased. It is easier to ask around on the field, but veterans of the sport can provide an excellent amount of feedback because of their own insights in dealing with empty tanks.
An empty paintball tank is absolutely useless. Always take into consideration how much CO2 is on hand and how much is spent on firing the weapon.
