No, they won't. Tippmanns run, in many cases, equally well on CO2 as on compressed air. The cold is an exception to this. However, in general, Tippmanns run very well on CO2.

Fair enough, my CPro is actually the same way (it hated CO2... HPA fixed more problems then I care to count. It chopped like mad with CO2 for some still-unknown reason). But to say HPA is universally better is incorrect. Just for some of us.

Canada FTW .
Last time I played (a couple of weeks ago) it was about -12*C. Some water had melted and then partially refrozen over the trails, because they are slightly lower than the rest of the field. I fell through a few times. My feet... numb after 2 hours.
