Top 6 Mistakes Beginners Make in Paintball

Boy in the camouflage holds a paintball gun barrel up in one han

Paintball is a sport played individually or in teams where players try to capture the other team’s flag and knock their opponents out of the game with paintballs. Beginners may have read up on the sport and practiced their shooting skills, but they often make avoidable mistakes.

Beginners Don’t Look

Many beginners tend to think that they will be a target if they look out of their shelter. Others use their eyes but only look in one direction. It’s important to use your eyes in order to spot your opponents before they spot you. Sticking your head out over the top of your shelter makes you a bigger target, so take quick looks around the side of the barricade instead.

Beginners Don’t Communicate

Another mistake many beginning paintball players make is that they don’t communicate with the rest of their team. They don’t ask for help when they need it, and they don’t share information when they have it. Communicating with your team members helps you win the game, so share with them if you’ve spotted an opponent. Likewise, if you need help, ask for it. It’s important to be stealthy in the game, but if your opponent’s already spotted you, there’s no harm in yelling to ask for your teammates’ help.

Rookies Shoot Too Much or Too Little

While some beginners shoot too little, many of them shoot too much. Some players will shoot at anything that moves; others shoot at targets too far away. Shooting at distant targets gives away your location, opening yourself up as a target for your opponents. Be sure you have a good, close shot at your opponent before you fire.

Newbies Call Themselves Out Too Quickly

Another common mistake beginners make is calling themselves out too early. If a paintball bounces off of you, it does not count; it only counts if it breaks on you. If you aren’t sure if one broke on you, you can ask a field judge.

Beginners Don’t Use Their Cover Effectively

Sometimes newbies don’t know how to effectively use their shelter. For instance, if you are hiding behind a wooden barricade, make sure your head, body, and gun are not visible through any holes the shelter possesses. Additionally, when you use your eyes, look out the side of the barricade with your paintball gun at the ready to shoot opponents who might be lurking around.

Rookies Shoot Inaccurately

In order to make the most of your shots, you must shoot accurately. Hold the gun close to your head, and look down its barrel when you shoot. Don’t hold the gun away from your body, or shoot from your hip. At times, you may need to angle your gun up slightly to get the correct shot on an opponent. However, if you have to angle your gun too far up, it means your target is too far away.

Paintball is a fun and strategic sport to play. Beginning players can avoid some of the most common rookie mistakes by following the tips given here.

Sniper Rifle for Paintball

paintball sniper

Trying to decide if a sniper paintball rifle is best for you? Here are some ideas to get you started.

AGD Longbow Paintball sniper guns come in a lot of different styles. You can take a look at the AGD Longbow upgrade package. This is a pricey marker but AGD only makes quality guns.

Phantom Style A pump gun, which ranges from cheap to expensive. It allows you to decide what works for your budget.

But it’s not the paintball sniper guns that make the sniper. A sniper is able to sneak in or be undetected until he makes his hit. Then you need to move from that spot un-noticed.

Paintball snipers should not be in groups of players. Snipers are most often found by themselves, they like the lone ranger style of play where the odds are stacked against them.

Paintball Camouflage can be one of the paintball snipers biggest investments. You can go for total body coverage with a Ghille Suit. But this will hinder your movement. The best idea is to break up your silhouette, a paintball players eyes are constantly scanning for a mask shape and color. Try breaking up your mask with a camo head net. Basic BDU camo will work fine.

Remember this point! Put yourself in a place that you can see well, with less movement. The human eye will focus on things that move, if you don’t have to move THEN DON’T! The common mistake is to turn your head or shift your leg. This movement will certainly give away your position. Try to find a mask that allows you to use your peripheral vision. Only move when you want to shoot.

What if you are spotted? Most likely if you are spotted, you will be out manned. Either go out blazing or run away and wait for another opportunity. Usually you can use this to your advantage and draw your enemy into a small ambush you setup. Run away and when you are out of their visual sight, make a quick cut left or right and either back track or wait for them to come find you.

Summary: It’s not the sniper paintball rifle that makes the paintball sniper. It’s the player and the choices you train yourself to make on the field

The Pros and Cons of Different Lens Tints

Paintball player

Lens tint on a paintball mask plays a large role in the effectiveness of how you adapt to the game or competition. Serious players acquire multiple lenses in a variety of colors when choosing a mask for versatility in playing options. This ensures the player always has an appropriate lens option depending on the specific style of play. When deciding on tint colors, consider the benefits and drawbacks of each hue.


Considered an everyday lens, all paintballers should carry at least one clear lens. Paintball masks with this lens offer optimal viewing indoors or outdoors, during daylight or nighttime hours. This is an extremely multipurpose lens that every player should possess.


This tint of a paintball mask may vary from yellow to orange. The color offers a number of benefits that include greater clarity in foggy, hazy or other low-light environments. Wear these lenses in dense forests, on rainy days or indoors in dimly lit conditions. Amber typically inhibits blue lights that hinder focus while red elements of the color enhance depth perception. Additionally, the amount of light allowed through this lens tint helps distinguish between low, medium and high lights and shadows, which means even if camouflaged, the movements of competitors becomes more visible.


When used on a paintball mask, a blue lens offers a number of benefits similar to amber colored lenses, though not quite as effectively. The color reduces glare, which is not only important on sunny days or under bright lights, but glare reduction is especially needed when competing on a luminous, winter day after a snowfall. Blue also helps accentuate contours and heightens color perception. Many prefer blue lenses for foggy or misty days in the field.


A red lens absorbs some green light and offers the visual acuity and sharpness offered by amber lenses. However, the hue is not as effective outdoors in the early morning or late afternoon hours. This color also generally filters out light that is considered harsh and harmful to the eyes.


A green lens sufficiently blocks red and infrared light waves that are produced by the sun. The color also serves well for fighting glare in an extremely bright environment.


Smoke lenses come in tint variations that range from lightly gray to almost completely black. The color transmits all of the other colors of the spectrum, so the viewer gets full, true-color perception without distortions. In addition to providing adequate protection on sunny days, smoky tones help combat eye fatigue. The grayish hues are also the best tint for reducing the high glare often encountered when near bodies of water. While a paintball mask equipped with a smoked lens is often used daily, the color is not recommended when engaged in battle in a dense forest, while indoors or at night.


While most are familiar with a basic silver chrome mirrored lens, this tint style comes in virtually every color of the rainbow. Mirrored lenses offer the darkest level of tint available and provide the ultimate protection on a bright sunny day or in the snow while simultaneously providing excellent visibility.


Similar to the varied tint on an automotive windshield, a hybrid lens has smoke or other dark color tinting on the uppermost portion of the lens that fades to clear or a lighter hue toward the bottom of the lens. The gradation provides the best of both worlds by offering clear viewing while inhibiting harsh light from above.

3 Things to Consider when Preparing For Paintball Night Games

Paintball Player With Two Guns

The paintball experience can be both rewarding and fun. This is a sport that is growing in popularity due to the teamwork and competition involved. However, there is more to this activity then simply running around and shooting paint at an opponent. There are complex positions and strategies that make this a game of wits. A daytime match of paintball can be a difficult game to win, but playing at night makes it even more complicated. To stand a chance against your nighttime competitors, keep these important considerations when playing a game come nightfall.

Using Night Vision

There are many players that use night vision devices. Monoculars are popular and, in some cases, players can even bring Forward Looking Infra-Red (or FLIR) scopes that mount to the top of the paintball gun. These scopes can easily cut through the darkness and spot a potential opponent. However, these types of scopes are not very common. It is important to remember that players with night vision devices may have an advantage; but there are several ways to defeat them. First, night vision can become challenging for players because they must frequently focus their eyes on a small area. Additionally, the infrared on the night vision device can give away the users position. Although there are some advantages and disadvantages to using night vision; the devices can be useful for much more easily seeing opponents and the playing field.

Use Flashlights Carefully

A flashlight is a good tool to have during a paintball game whether it is used or not. When maneuvering around the field, a flashlight can help to see undetected obstacles and keep players from tripping. When used carefully during a game, the light can brighten a darkened area to reveal sneaky opponents. Some opponents will actually freeze when the light is placed on them – creating a useful advantage. On the other hand, some opponents will see the light and begin shooting at it. It is important to remember that using a flashlight will almost always tell the opposition more about you than about them. In some cases, flashlights can be used to momentarily, yet harmlessly, blind players and secure a defeat. Flashlights are a good tool for night games; however, it is important to use them carefully and sparingly.

Beware of Fogging Goggles

Many experienced players have learned the hard way that goggles fog up quite often during the day. However, the effect is significantly worse at night. To prevent this from happening, players can apply an anti-fog spray to the lens. It is also important to remember to remove dark colored lenses that are worn during daytime play. These dark lenses can add to visibility issues. If goggles fog up during night games, never remove the goggles to clear the fog. This will inadvertently make the problem worse. Experienced players look downward and grab the front of the goggles while pumping them away from the face. This process helps to circulate fresh air inside the mask and clear the fog. Some players also use baby shampoo on the lenses to prevent fog from collecting.

These are only a few things to consider when competing in a nighttime game of paintball. There are many other concerns that can help secure a win or cause defeat. Experienced players have learned the ropes of nighttime play through trial and error. However, whether playing during the day or at night; it is important to remain safe, follow the rules, and most of all have fun.
