You will experience joy and euphoria from victory as well as disappointment, when you find out how easy it can be to lose. But one thing is certain - you will never forget your moments spent playing paintball.
How to play
There exist numerous varieties of paintball, but they usually have one thing in common. Two teams playing one against the other. The goals of the game may differ depending on game type. Sometimes you need to capture your opponent's flag, defend your own flag or you have to eliminate all opposing players. The number of players in each team is free and is only limited by the size of the paintball field. Small skirmishes of two pairs can be played, as well as battles involving 500 players on each side. The game has a usual time limit of 10 minutes which can be altered according to the size of the field and the number of players. So there is no need to worry about having to wait for a long time, even if you get hit at the beginning of the game day. You will get a smell of the action plenty of times for sure
Paintball weapons vaguely resemble real guns and pistols, but they function on the concept of compressed air or carbon dioxide. They shoot gelatin balls filled with color. The aiming range is 30 to 45m and most paintball guns are semi-automatic (one trigger pull - one shot). Paintballs have a thin gelatin shell and a colored filling in the interior. The color is non-toxic, non-caustic, soluble in water and biologically non-hazardous. It is easily removable both from skin and clothing with pure water or soap. When the paint ball hits a player, it bursts, marking him with bright color. The tagged player is excluded from the game.
Safety procedures are of great concern in paintball. All players and referees must wear a special paintball protective mask, which protects the face and the eyes and must never be taken off in the field. A barrel cover must be placed over the barrel opening whenever a player leaves the field.
