hey guys,
i was trying to get an idea of what you walk onto the field with in terms of Air?

Personally i tend to go in with 20oz Co2, 1-2 backup spare tanks in the back up area.
I don't mind the Co2... it's not as consistent as the Compressed air... but when i'm running
full auto, or close to... i always find i can squeeze more shots out of a Co2 tank...

how big are your tanks? using full auto? semi? what kinda air systems are you using? how many
shots are you getting?

i took a quick look, and didn't see anything about this specifically to broadswords... my apologees if
this is covered somewhere else.

I use an 88/3000 tank, with my SP-8 that's about a case of a paint, give or take a few hundred rounds. That's using a ramping mode, which (IMO, anyway) is a bout Same-same as an RT on a tippmann.

Pure energy 110 ci 4500 psi.

Unsure about much of the tank on my A5 because the first game I was going to test it out during I found that my A5 is messing up big time and just shredding paint and uncontroled full auto.

72ci 3000 psi

I use this on my Ion still a huge tank to use on it but I like it gets me around 1000 shots give or take I wasn't really paying much attention as I was being shot at and counting was the last thing on my mind while looking for the closest big tree / bunker.

whats your main fire mode / style? ... how many shots do you typically get out of a tank?


i was looking at maaayyyybe getting the Crossfire 92/4500 HP tank... should work right? i was told Tippmanns need high
pressure, and over 800psi per shot to be effective... <-- please correct me if i'm wrong there... anyways, assuming it DOES
work... i'm a little curious how many shots i can get? i usually use 3 shot burst, some full-auto, that style of fire.

How many shots can I get with compressed air?

I have an A5 and an Ion. The A5 has an RT and I usually have my Ion set to 3-burst. Since my Ion is more efficient, of course I'll get more shots out of my tank.

My DM5 is feed by a Pure Energy 68/4500 or Crossfire 68/3000 tank that is on my marker.
Team Krisis
You gas up the marker, put on the gloves, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last night, or that you got a ticket on the way there...your world is right for the next couple hours, this is your heaven on earth... live it... love it..

How the hell could you stop me? Why in the world would you try? I go hard forever that's just how I'm designed, that's just how I was built.

Action Village 110ci 4500psi Pure energy tank

hehehe yeah... broadsword... walls of paint flying away from me... the screams of fear from grown men in their bunkers...
so fun... now if only gallons of spray counted as a kill :D

whoa. Not nearly as expensive as i would have thought either.

hey by anychance does anyone know if this fits in the special ops broadsword 6 vest? I read somewhere that they only support
up to 92ci.... however the only difference from what i can tell looking at the pictures of both the 92ci, and the 110ci, is that
the 110 is a little taller? Any experience with this anyone?
