We are excited to have you join us for Operation End War. It really depends on your preference on whether or not you want to use co2 or hpa. Currently, the Paintball Zone can refill hpa on site, but it doesn't have an option for refilling co2. We are working with them to see if we can offer something to refill co2, but it hasn't been set in stone yet.

Co2 is a liquid that is changed to a gas within the expansion chamber of the paintball marker. The operating pressure needed to get optimal performance out of most paintball guns is about 850 psi. To produce this pressure, the co2 tank temperature needs to be at 70 degrees. As the tank temperature decreases, it will also cause a decrease in your paintball gun performance. Because co2 must go from a liquid to a gas, it can be rather unstable at times. HPA, on the other hand, starts as a gas and stays as a gas throughout the entire cycle. HPA is not only cleaner and better for the internal components of your marker; it is also more stable. One of the biggest advantages in using hpa is the lighter weight because hpa stays a gas in comparison to co2 which has to convert from liquid to gas.

Yes, you're gonna have to buy field paint. It will be $65 for the case and $20 for the bag of 500.

Your load out looks good. You will be at a disadvantage with so few magazines though. The magazines from rap4 and milsig are either 18 or 20 rounds. The average player there previously had a minimum of three 20 round mags. I carry 1 in the marker and 4 on the vest, sometimes 7 on the vest. Of course it all depends on what role you are playing but reloading magazines while under fire is tough.

For the price of a few more mags for your marker you can rent one of theirs at the field, $50 Rental package comes with marker, 3 x magazine and magazine pouch.
