All paintball guns (or paintball markers ) are designed to shoot paintballs at high speeds using compressed gas–either air or CO2. When a paintball gun fires, a small bolt pushes a ball into the paintball barrel and simultaneously seals the ball in the barrel.

The average paintball has a velocity of about 280 fps, or 190 mph, which is far slower than any regular gun.
How much force does a paintball hit with?
Roughly 70 – 80psi to propel the paintball out of the barrel at ~300fps. This would vary depending on the actual size and mass of the paintball and how tightly it fits in the firing chamber.

Most paintballs are made of non-toxic food-grade ingredients such as food coloring and water. This means that they are completely harmless to people and most of the ingredients used to make paintballs are even edible.
How many layers should you wear for paintball?
Just 1 layer for me unless it’s really cold outside, then I dress appropriately for the weather and for the level of activity, which is generally high exertion in paintball. For warm weather I normally wear a t-shirt and shorts, or very well breathing long sleeve jersey and pants.
How much is a bag of paintballs?

Why do paintball guns use CO2?
CO2 and compressed air (HPA) are high-pressure gases that are required to power paintball guns. When CO2 is stored in a CO2 bottle, it is in liquid form. Letting only a little CO2 out of the bottle at a time allows for just gas to come out. This gas is what’s used to fire the paintball marker or paintball gun.
