Is there only Co2?

Is there only Co2? Or is there compressed air? And which is better?

There are both.

CO2 is fine for blowback markers, like Spyders and Piranhas, but HPA is generally better for everything.

no not a troll....just a newby..

If you know about something then it obviously "is". That means if you know of something then it exists. So yes their is a such thing as compressed air and compressed air is better

eh, maybe, the c3 dosent use propane as a gas, it ignites the propane and uses the expanding air, like an engine does with gas

And the Evolt which is spring-powered (like many Airsoft guns).

But by far, CO2 is used by probobly 90% of players, followed by N2 and HPA.
The C3 and Evolt were geared more towards police training, where lugging around a large bulk tank is a bit of a problme.

no Co2 is okay for mechanical markers, but compressed air is the best source for any marker

Yeah, no. You're wrong. On the tourney scene, yes, HPA is more widely used. In Recball, and "outlaw" ball, however, CO2 is by far the source of choice.

That could qualify for the most ignorant statement ever posted on an online forum. Look up the definition for recreational, then tell me who plays rec ball. If you're going to argue with me, at least back up your points with something concrete.

I suppose that's exactly why many markers recommend CO2 as an air source, right?

recball is bigger than tourneyball. Tournaments just get alot more time in the spotlight.

C02 is garbage, if you shoot anything thats electronic its destructive. When u shoot a full auto gun or anything like it, c02 doent have enough time to expand and freezes up the internals of your gun, ruining 0-rings and the like. thats why sometimes ull see white flakes or dust come out of the barrel...its liquid c02. if you want any sort of efficency out of ur marker use HPA.
