Tankless paintball marker

I ran into this today. I assume it's running off some sort of flammable gas and uses a spark ignition. It looks like it may only be for nerf rockets though. I'm not all that impressed the more I read into it.

What is a fuel cell ?


A fuel cell used in the Tankless Invasion guns, is the same as used on cordless nailers. Fuel Cells provide powerful performance in a compact package. Giving you portable power you can count on, these handy fuel cells will save you time and effort and will forever free you from the mess and hassle of those heavy and huge CO2 Tanks!!

I wonder how paintball fields feel about the actual explosive combustion....

Been out for a while, I have one. It uses the same propellant cartridges that nailguns use. You get a ton of shots - allegedly in the thousands, but I haven't been keeping track. I've had it for over a year and have fooled around with it a lot, and still haven't emptied the first cylinder. It's not very powerful, nor particularly reliable. Its best selling feature is that it's significantly cheaper than a Havoc, but that having been said, spend the money and get the Havoc.

PS - it is primarily for Nerfs, but it does have an insert (sold as an additional accessory, if I remember right) that allows you to shoot blasts of 5 regular paintballs. As no field I know of allows that, I haven't even bothered to try it out.

They just didn't work all the time, and they weren't refined at all.

For the price,

You could have a shotgun weight pump handle, heavy pot metal gun with the novelty of propane, that never worked that well in the C3

Or a sniper, with a lightweight pump stroke, lighter parts, better performance, and all around betterness
