I wanted to build an air powered shotgun but I am unsure of what air tank to use. I was thinking about a panther but it seems to be a bit small. What air tank should I use and what number of darts should I use for that airtank?

XBZ is probably the easiest to get, and should do fine for three .50 caliber (elite) darts. If you want to use a lot of darts (like using a maverick cylinder as a shell) you could use a drain blaster.

Or the good ol Titan. You can make that shoot around 10+ at once.

Titans, XBZ, Drain blasters are probably the best. I'd use a drain blaster since Titans are mildly hard to find (thrifting), and I don't think they sell XBZs anymore.

Titans or XBZs work great and aren't extremely hard to get. Drain blasters typically aren't allowed at wars but are usually the best option. I would also say a shotblast or SM5K tank but I'm not sure on them as both haven't really been used in shotgun builds and SM5Ks are very rare nowadays. Anything with a big tank and quick air release should work for a shotgun build
