Gas-powered or battery-powered?
Gas-powered or battery-powered? Which one is better?
What you need to know about gas-powered.
There are a few different types of gas-powered blasters available. Some are powered by either CO2 or Green Gas.
What is green gas?
Green Gas is often a mix of propane, silicone oil, and a mix of other gases. It is available from any of our 16 stores in bottle form, making it quick & easy to reload.
What is CO2?
CO2 is carbon dioxide. Best for pistols, CO2 has higher power than Green Gas and is generally filled into a pistol by a CO2 capsule. These are available in packs from any of our 16 stores in QLD.
Gas-powered is great if you’d like to have that realistic feel when shooting the blaster. They’re more accurate, powerful, and have a recoil effect with each shot. However, you can quickly run out of gas, and it can be affected by the weather, so make sure you check the conditions of your playing environment before opting for a gas-powered one.
What you need to know about battery powered.
Battery-powered blasters are easy to use and maintain. They’re almost always automatic and simply require a charge of the battery. It is more cost-effective than gas-powered blasters, and they’re also not affected by the weather in the same aspect.
Though, if you play for hours and hours, you should definitely invest in some extra batteries (Eg. Titan Batteries) or have a backup blaster available.
So which is better?
Both options are powerful and have their benefits. While battery-powered is more cost-effective, gas-powered makes them seem and sound more like the real deal. It all comes down to personal preference and play style!
Those are the basics you need to know for both types of blasters; if you’re still unsure, head into one of our 16 stores and try both types out for a demo! It just comes down to your budget, what feel you want from your blaster, and the conditions you’ll be playing in.
