The New Tiberius Arms T15 at Ultimate Paintball

Tiberius Arms has a new gun out and everyone seems to be talking about it. The second we get one in, we sell it. So, I figured it was time to look into it and see what the big deal is with this new marker, what is so special about it?

First, let me start this with a little story. Our company went to ION this year and we brought everything we could possibly put on our gigantic trailer. We had almost anything that people could ask for. That is we had everything except the one thing that people asked for the most. The T15. We had a lot of markers set up for people to look at and about 80% of them came up asking for the T15. The problem was that we had received them a day after we left for the trip. I have no doubts in my mind that if we would have brought 10 we would have sold 9/10 of them!

So lets look at the information they give us and then speculate why people are just getting batty for.

This is from the Tiberius website:

“The revolutionary T15 magazine fed paintball marker is the first of its kind offering a true .68 caliber 1 to 1 AR rifle platform. The T15 features a rugged lightweight aluminum body that will withstand the harshest conditions while maintaining optimum maneuverability. Equipped to use our 19/19rd continuous feed magazines or a standard hopper, the T15 features an integrated 13ci/3000psi tank/stock combo.”

Then the bulleted specs or details:
2 Piece Cast Aluminum Construction
Aluminum Quad Rail Handguard
13ci/3000psi Tank/Stock Combo
Low Profile Flip Up Sights
2 Pin Quick Dissemble
Functional Charging Handle
19/19 Continuous Feed First Strike Magazines
Magazine and Hopper Feed
Includes Two Magazines
Packaged in Durable Side Rifle Case

OK! Thats out of the way, now lets get some speculation as to why people are pining for these things.

The consensus that I gathered at ION was “It looks sweet!”. I will try to make a little more sense of that for you. The big selling point (at least what I could tell from talking to people) is that it is a 1 to 1 ratio to a real AR. The scenario and “mil-sim” games are getting very popular so, the more realistic the  better.  This thing looks and feels much like a real AR. If you have never been to one of these events where they are emulating a battle from history, I suggest you try to make it to one. People get dressed up in full military gear, have their own squads and teams that act as an actual unit would in the military. Now bring in a paintball gun that looks and feels as close as possible to a real Assault Rifle and you get people talking.

Next, FIRST STRIKE ROUNDS. These things are growing quickly in popularity. They put regular paintballs to shame. You can put these in a Magazine (ding ding ding! another good thing) and go to town like  (again) this is a real gun. This is where, I personally think, paintball is/should be going. When those original players were out in the woods playing, I think this is what they had in mind. Lets make this fun and make it like we are playing at war.

Now lets step back a step. Magazines. This is another thing that is becoming very popular and Tiberius Arms is one of the greatest companies for magazine fed play. Partner the magazine with the “built-in” tank and I think all of these things are what is bringing the people to this gun.

WE have sold all of them that we have but we will have more @ Ultimate Paintball. Tiberius Arms T15

Ultimate Paintball: Skirmish ION 2014

Ultimate Paintball is mainly an online business but, as of late, we have been making our way to the paintball events across this great nation. We have already went to Living Legends 7, D-Day in Oklahoma and,  Now we are going to what is supposed to be the biggest event of the year. Invasion of Normandy in Pennsylvania is supposed to have thousands of players and visitors and we are bringing our giant trailer and putting up a tent to sell a huge selection of our items.

This is something very new for our company we have never went to an even this large and we have never went to an event that will take this long to drive. There will be 5 people crammed into our truck and we are driving what could be up to 18 hours (depending on stops). To be honest it is going to be an awful drive but, it will all pay off. We get to hang out with a bunch of people that love the sport. Every day of these events we meet new and interesting people that love the sport that we deal with everyday and they all have interesting stories about playing.

Something that is also really great about these events is that we get to hear, in real time, what people think of our company and think about the products that have been released this year and in recent years. This is always a good thing because it prepares us for future events and lets us know what we could possibly add to our, ever-growing, website.  Paintball is a sport that is constantly changing and evolving so, getting this sort of feedback is vital. If you happen to be coming to this event feel free to let us know what you would like to see on the website or even what we should bring to future events, as we plan to show up to even more next year.

What is great about doing well at these events is that we can upgrade the presentation of our company each time we go. We used to have a small trailer with our name on it and now we have a 50 foot trailer that doubles as a store. Please come check us out at this event and show some love for Ultimate Paintball. We try to do as much as much as we can for our customers so you can definitely expect some great deals in our tent and on our trailer.

As for our website we still have some great deals running, remember you can always get free shipping on orders over $99 to the lower 48 states. This is a great deal that really sets us apart from some of our competitors. They claim to have cheaper prices or claim shipping is cheaper until you actually get through the checkout and you are paying $15 or more to get it shipped to you. We also have a deal running right now (7/1/14) with planet eclipse where you will receive the a free gear bag with the purchase of an LV1 or GEO 3.1

Why is Paintball such a Good Team Building Activity?

seven friends in masks and camouflage play paintball in the fres

Paintball is not just for weekend warriors looking for a fun free time activity. Rather, paintball is being used with ever increasing frequency as a means of team building for businesses and other types of organizations. A business, as well as its employees, can enjoy a number of significant benefits when this enjoyable activity is used as a team building experience.

Positive Relationship Development

A business enterprise functions optimally when its employees develop and maintain strong, positive connections between themselves. Another reality, albeit contradictory, is that the workaday environment oftentimes is structured and functions in a manner that actually prevents the development of appropriately strong interconnections between employees. In the end, littering the workplace with inspiration posters about “being part of the team” simply is not enough to enhance positive relationships between employees.

Paintball permits the development of positive, strong connections and relationships between employees. First and foremost, when a group of people who normally work together are placed in an environment in which they can actually enjoy themselves in a more uninhibited manner, interrelationships necessarily transform. In addition, although employees typically are called upon to take a team approach in the workplace, this activity allows them to truly refine cooperative skill sets because of the very nature of the sport.

Strategic and Critical Thinking Enhancement

Business owners and managers list the development of strategic and critical thinking skills to be a major priority within their respective enterprises. In the end, seminars on strategic and critical thinking are capable of informing employees as to what these concepts mean. However, educating individuals is not the same as instilling the skills.

The goals and objectives of paintball necessarily call upon team members to engage in significant and meaningful strategic and critical thinking. Moreover, it requires the fusion of these efforts into a group decision making process — precisely what business owners and managers truly value in this day and age.

Competition Enhances Team Cohesion

A fundamental principle of enterprise success is that a cohesive team is more apt to achieve the underlying goals and objectives of a business enterprise or other type of organization. The problem is that in many ventures, a true sense of cohesion among employees either fails to take hold or, if it does, cannot be maintained for an extended period of time.

Paintball is designed to be a competitive endeavor. Research indicates that competitive activities necessarily enhance the sense of cohesion between individuals working towards a common objective. This type of team cohesion in a competitive arena is seen consistently in professional and college sports. Paintball provides the same sort of setting in which cohesion between team members is imperative to ultimate success. Once established in the paintball arena, the sense of cohesion can carry over into the work environment.

Know Your Paintball Weaknesses & Use Them as Strengths

Group of paintballers

Paintball is a tactical game that allows you to strengthen your senses and use those strengths against your opponents. Whether you are playing seriously, or just for fun, you can learn to turn your weaknesses into strengths in a few steps. Everyone has a weak point in their strategy, and in order to improve your style, you need to recognize those weak points.

You’re Slow 

Being slow sucks, but beginners are often slow. If you aren’t a beginner, but you are still slow, that’s okay too. Side attacks are often forgotten, but they could help you win a match against a team if speed is an issue for you. Side attacks are a powerful technique that shouldn’t be underestimated. If you are playing with a team, the goal is to divide your team into a strong side and a weaker side. If both sides are strong, then that’s a great thing. The weak side should approach the goal slowly, but the strong side can move in at a rapid pace. This will allow the greatest hits to the opposing team and reaching the paintball flag successfully.

Not Having Enough Stealth 

Cover is so important, but paintball players sometimes go in head first without any stealth. This will lead to a quick defeat and a lot less fun. Stealth can be incorporated by staying low, wearing camo gear and using the environment to your advantage. The goal isn’t to just hide. You want to train yourself to move.

You Don’t Have Patience 

If you don’t have patience in paintball, you probably won’t be a great sniper. You can use your impatience in a way that allows you to dominate the field by being one of the decoys. A decoy will get the team to focus on you. This will draw them away from the rest of your team. If you’re fast enough, you will still come out ahead.

You Like To Be Alone

This tip is the opposite of the above. If you like to be alone, you will make a great sniper. Paintball sniping is a sneaky and covert way to win. A sniper usually hides out somewhere and doesn’t move much, but they can attack from a vantage point that gives their team a strong lead.

You’re Inaccurate

Not everyone will have sniper-level accuracy, but closing the distance between you and your opponents will increase your accuracy. You can turn this into a strength when you’re playing paintball by ambushing. An ambush can take down a lot of players and help you win.

You Don’t Have The Best Equipment

Not everyone can afford the best equipment for playing, but that shouldn’t stop you from becoming the best player you can. Collaborative tactics can and will compensate for lower-quality equipment. Use your teammates and knowledge of the game to play with a strong strategy and tactical advantage. You should also know that there is a difference between strategy and tactics, and that you can harness both of them to your advantage.

Have Fun 

Whether you are playing seriously or for fun, you still want to make the most of it. Relax and enjoy your time with friends. You will probably meet new people on the playing field as well.

How to Clean your Paintball Gear

Brushes And Such

You’ve likely invested several hundred dollars into your paintball gear. Just like any other sizable investment, you should take steps to maintain it. This means thoroughly cleaning your paintball gear on a regular basis. By performing regular cleanings, you’ll be able to play all day during your next outing as you won’t have to stop to clear your barrel, unjam your trigger or wipe down your mask.

The Gun

Before attempting to clean your gun, take a look at the manufacturer’s instructions to see if there are specific cleaning guidelines. Put a newspaper onto a flat surface to make the paintball gear cleaning process more tidy. Before taking the gun apart, take a look at the manufacturer’s schematic. If you can’t find the schematic, locate it on the manufacturer’s website. Take your air source out of the gun. Then remove the barrel, hopper, bolt, grip frame and striker/hammer and put each to the side.

Push a squeegee through the barrel. Then take a paper towel and wet it with hot water. Wipe the towel along the exterior and interior of the barrel. Then push a new squeegee through the barrel until it is dry. There will be some tough spaces to clean inside of the gun. Get those nooks clean with paper towels or old toothbrushes. Wipe the paint remnants off of the grip frame with a brush but leave the trigger as it is. Triggers are tough to re-assemble. Use another paper towel and hot water to clean the striker and bolt. Then dry them.

Inspect the o-rings to identify any air leaks. If o-rings are cracked or look odd, replace them immediately. Now, lubricate the paintball gun’s insides with paintball gear oil. Focus on lubricating the moving parts. Traditional oils might damage the gun, so only use paintball gear oil. Lubricate the o-rings by putting the oil on your finger and very lightly pressing it around the o-rings. Then re-assemble the gun according to the schematic that came with its original packaging.

Pod Packs

Clean pod packs by placing them in your washing machine. Be sure to cover the velcro on the packs so that it doesn’t stick to and damage your clothing. If you don’t want to use the washing machine to clean your pod packs, opt to hand wash them with paper towels and hot water.

Mask

Paintball gear, especially masks collect paint, dirt, sweat and other substances during the course of a game. These substances can obstruct vision and damage the mask’s thermal coating which can compromise the lens’s integrity. Don’t clean the mask with chemical laden sprays and liquids. Chemicals have the potential to damage the mask’s thermal coating. Be sure to wash your hands before cleaning the mask so that you don’t add more paint and sweat. If the lens can be removed from the mask, remove it before cleaning it. Use hot water and a micro fiber cloth to clean the mask’s lens after every game. Paper towels might scratch the lens so use the micro fiber cloth instead. Run the rest of the mask under hot water and let it sit until it is completely dry.

Clothes

Paintballs will stain clothing so be sure to play with old clothes that you don’t value. Paintballs contain hydrophyllic fillings that can be removed by most laundry detergents. However, don’t let the stained clothing sit unwashed for more than a few hours. Otherwise, the dye will seep into the clothes’ fibers and become very difficult to wash out. If the paintball stains don’t come out after a normal washing, soak them in warm water with a teaspoon of dish detergent and a teaspoon of ammonia for half an hour to an hour. Then apply a stain remover and wash it in the laundry machine again.

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.

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
