Paintball is a team-based shooting sport in the USA where players aim to eliminate their opponents by hitting them with paintballs made of gelatin capsules containing dye. These paintballs explode upon impact. Paintballs are shot with low-energy air weapons, called paintball markers. These are powered by compressed or carbon dioxide.
The sport is primarily played for recreation, but it is also used to enhance military or other training. You can contact the paintball company via www.paintballusa.org to book the venue.
The playing field can have either natural or artificial terrain that players use to provide tactical coverage. The type of paintball equipment used varies according on the game, such as woodsball, speedball, or scenario; the amount of money spent on equipment; and personal choice.
Paintball has an almost infinite number of rules and variations, all of which are declared before the game begins. The most fundamental game rule is that players must aim to achieve a goal without getting shot and painted. Players who have been eliminated are expected to leave the field.
The player may return to the field and continue playing, or he or she may be eliminated from the game entirely, depending on the agreed-upon game rules. There are many countries and regions that have different laws regarding the legality of paintball and how to use them. Players are required to use protective masks and barrel-blocking safety gear in all areas that allow for regulated play.
