Playing tips:

We always encourage new players to talk to our staff or older players on the field to learn as much as they can. Having someone watching you play can result in great benefits. A lot of times we fail to recognize, or are completely unaware of, mistakes we are making. Don't get discouraged your first day playing, WE PROMISE, the learning curve is steep and fast. Many times after an hour or two of playing new players are able to hold their own against older players.

These are some strategies experienced players use to dominate the field as they play:

  • Laneing: This is the practice of stepping to the side during a break and firing continously down a straight line where the field is mostly open. This is done in an attempt to prevent players on an opposing team from getting to that side of the field and is only really effective during the first few seconds of a game. THIS USES A LOT OF PAINT. (We do not recommend doing this unless you are carrying pods of paint).
  • Bunkering: This is mostly effective against newer players but it does work on anyone. Can be performed solo or in conjunction with another player. To do this you lay suppressive fire at 1 or more players forcing them to take cover. Once players have taken cover from your barrage it allows you to move quickly to a new barricade, often times, leaving them unaware of your new position.This can also be used to quickly run up on another player for a "Point Blank"  or surrender.
  • Snap shot (shooting): Using the edge of your barricade you line up your shot on where a player is before exposing yourself. Quickly jerking to the side you also begin firing (some players start firing before leaving the bunker for quicker shots). Generally this is only 1-3 shots at a time before you are back into cover. This takes a lot of practice, and at first is very inaccurate.
  • Marking /Marking targets: This is super simple, but often overlooked by new players. YELL OUT ENEMY POSITIONS TO YOUR TEAM. You want to be specific, but don't ramble as long descriptions are to confusing. Its best to learn the common names for barricades beforea game starts so that everyone agrees on what things are called. Some name examples are Dorito, tombstone, Aztec, Soda can, Beer can, Flat, Spool, 3 tires (referring to the number of tires stack together), etc.
  • Leap frog: A tactic used by two or more players who alternately move and provide cover fire for each other.
  • Run and Gun: Running for new cover whilst providing covering fire for yourself.(This should be done as much as possible).
  • Run Through: A strategy whereby a player runs down the field and tries to bunker multiple players before getting eliminated. The player is often eliminated at the end of his run but will have taken out several opponents if the run was successful.

Walkthrough of gameplay

Here is an example of how a game will start: Once players have reloaded refs will instruct everyone to put their masks on. The refs will then escort the players to the chrono station and test fire all markers. Once all markers have been verified to be in proper working order, and firing under 300FPS (this ensure the paintballs don’t do more than sting), players will be escorted from the staging area to the starting zones.

Once at the starting zones the refs will verify teams ready and signal each other. The senior ref will begin the game. Play will then commence and not end until the objectives of the game have been met, or 20 minutes has expired, whichever comes first. Players will begin leaving the field and returning to the staging area. At this time they will return their equipment to a standby condition and wait until the game is concluded.

At the end of the game all remaining players and refs will return to the staging area. Refs will ensure all markers have been returned to a standby status and escort the players off field. Now players will be able to remove the masks, reload, get drinks, sit down, etc. After a 5-10 minute period the refs will start a new game.


We highly recommend:

  • Players wear semi loose fitting clothes that covers your arms and legs (the color yellow is resevered for our refs).
  • A set of clothes to change into when playing or leaving (keeps your car nice).
  • Shoes or boots that provide ankle support and have good tread.
  • Bringing something to drink. Unfortunately we don't have running water yet.
  • If you're a minor, a filled out waiver form, if you're being dropped off.
