First, consider the type of tank that works best in cold weather. Standard paintball CO2 tanks freeze up quickly even in the summer; this problem is compounded in cold weather. Itís better to play with a high pressure air tank which delivers a consistent pressure, regardless of how cold it is in your playing environment. The last thing you need is a tank that stops performing because of the temperature.
You will also want to change the type of paintballs you use. Winter formula paintballs maintain their liquid state in even very cold weather, while regular paintballs freeze up. A frozen paintball hurts twice as much! Even though winter formula balls are harder to find and may cost a bit more, they are a necessity for gaming in colder climates.
