Paintball Hand Signals 101

Two paintball sport players in prootective uniform and mask aimi

If the enemy is close by and you don’t want to reveal your position by speaking aloud, paintball hand signals are an essential communication system for teams. Unless you’re employing walkie talkies or you’re three feet away from a teammate, a hand signal can go a long way in assisting coordination. Every team should issue their own paintball hand signal system that they’re familiar with. However, basic military signals are usually used as a rule of thumb if a private system has not been engaged. When going into a paintball match, remember to appoint one leader or a couple of squad leaders, depending on how many members are present. Check that everyone understands the numerous hand signals, and instruct teammates to consistently keep an eye out for them.


A basic hand signal is the twirling of your pointer finger in a circle in the air. It sets you as the rallying point. Other team members should prepare to move to your position or to follow you from cover. This will make certain that your team remains close and cohesive in moving around the course.

Enemy Spotted

One of the most important paintball hand signals is to call out an enemy. To signify that you have spotted an opposing team member, point to your eyes with your pointer and middle fingers. Then, point specifically at or in the direction of the enemy. This signal will ensure where your team needs to fire or where to watch for movement.

Take Cover

Your team needs to know when to diverge from the established formation and to take cover. A fist in the air should tell your teammates to crouch and lay low. They should take cover wherever possible, whether by crawling or sprinting to the location. Make sure that your flanks and rear are protected.


A vital part of paintball hand signals is the “stop” motion. An open hand held up in the air indicates that everybody should stop what they’re doing, crouch, and aim in different positions. Also, once a team is stopped, it is easier to give out additional orders and signals.

Move Here, There

Be mindful where you place your teammates. If you want to change directions in where you’re going, hold your pointer and middle fingers together and point in a specific direction. The whole team can move to that area, or you can split members up to precise locations. Differentiate between a team and a person direction change by pointing to a single teammate before signaling. If no one was pointed to before the hand signal, then the entirety of the team should move.

I Do and Don’t Understand

Team members can sometimes have difficulty understanding your orders. Perhaps they’re not fully seeing what you’re motioning. If that’s the case, then it would be helpful to have one or two paintball hand signals that convey these feelings in such circumstances. Putting your pointer and thumb together to form a circle and raising your remaining fingers (the symbol for “okay”) is a common show of understanding. Conversely, an upraised hand tilting from side to side implies that you don’t understand.

How to Keep your Paintball Marker Running Like New

clean paintball marker

A high quality paintball marker is not a cheap investment and like most expensive items, you want to ensure it lasts for a long time. Proper paintball marker usage, maintenance, and cleaning are the key tasks to keeping your gun working efficiently for years to come. Whether you’re a professional paintball player or just a weekend warrior, following these simple tips will keep your paintball marker operating at peak condition.

Important Note: Always remove the air source from you paintball gun before performing any maintenance or cleaning.

Clean Your Marker

Mud, dust, and dried paint are like a disease that will slowly kill the performance of your marker. A dirty marker is less accurate, jams frequently, and will not re-cock properly. A little bit of routine cleaning will make a huge difference in the reliability of your paintball marker. First, always make sure to wipe down the marker after every use. Pay attention to removing all mud and dust from any moving parts. The increased friction from dirt will cause premature failure to those parts. Next, disassemble the marker and wipe down each piece with a water dampened cloth. Make sure that you do not use any chemicals or cleaners that may hurt the finish or integrity of the gun material. Finally, the barrel is an essential part to clean. Take a squeegee and make sure all wet or dried paint is removed from the inside of the barrel. Residual paint in the barrel will decrease accuracy and may even cause paintballs to break apart. Remember that a clean paintball gun is a fun paintball gun.

Properly Lubricate Your Marker

The most important thing to do before lubricating you marker is to read the instruction manual. The instruction manual will identify what type of oil or grease is specifically needed for your marker and the interval frequency suggested for lubricating your marker. Paintball markers all have moving parts and need this lubricant to function properly. Remember to use lubricant in small increments. Too much lubricant is just as bad as no lubricant. Excess oil and grease will attract dirt to the moving parts of the marker. A properly lubricated marker will be more accurate and experience fewer failures during game time.

Always Check the O-Rings

Compressed air propels the paintballs from your marker. The o-ring seals that hold the compressed air in the paintball gun are essential to achieve peak performance. Listen for any audio cues coming from your gun. If the marker is consistently hissing, it probably has a busted o-ring. Before removing and inspecting the o-rings, please read your owner’s manual. It is important to identify the location of each o-ring on the marker for reassembly. Visually inspect each o-ring for any cuts or tears and replace as needed.

Change Your Batteries Regularly

Sometimes you marker will just not work properly – this is a good hint that your battery may need charging or replacement. A marker that has enough battery power to fire may not have enough power to work at its best. Many times the fix to the problem requires a simple battery change. Having sufficient power in the paintball gun will save you many headaches on game day. Make sure to check your batteries before every usage and to keep a spare set of batteries while playing.

Keep It Out of the Muck

A clean paintball gun makes a happy paintball player. Unfortunately, paintball is always the most exciting when enjoyed in not-so-clean settings (such as the mud and rain), conditions that can wreak havoc on maintaining a properly working marker.  When playing in these circumstances, try to avoid fully submersing your gun in the water or mud. A good idea is to use a plastic wrap over the top of your paintball marker to keep it out the elements. It isn’t always easy to keep your marker completely free of mud and water, but doing so will keep it running smoothly for years.

Dye Assault Matrix DAM Paintball Marker Gun

In stock and ready to ship from Ultimate Paintball is the incredible Dye Dam Paintball Gun. If you are a serious woodsballer and want to own your competition, the Dye Assault Matrix DAM Paintball Marker Gun is the gun that will help you do that. Based on a custom design by Youngblood himself, the DAM’s trigger incorporates vertical ridges and an extra wide face, used by top firearms competition shooters. This design ensures steady trigger feel even in the most adverse conditions with or without gloves. Customizable forward and backward travel with spring tension adjustment create the perfect pull. With the push of a button the DAM can switch from Semi Auto to Three Round Burst to Fully Automatic, or if you want to get fancy you can even program specific firing modes that cater to your style of play. All changes can be done with your gun fully assembled, even mid-game. A board lock- out can be implemented to get you on the tournament field or any firing- mode-restricted areas. Precision or volume, just a button away. The all new In-Line regulator is based on the proven Hyper line of regulators and improves on it with the easiest access and simplest break down of any gun Dye has made. With the Quick Release Bolt any operator can toollessly access their bolt and regulator in one simplified assembly. Now all parts that require standard maintenance are accessed with 2 turns. With velocity adjustment accessible through the back cap, we’ve moved the regulator out of the way for that real military look and operation. The DAM comes magazine feed ready. Ambidextrous magazine release for right and left handed users makes reloading a snap and allows you to keep an extremely low profile, even when reloading. All Dye magazines are Shaped Projectile ready and waiting to deliver each shot just like a real firearm. Leave the accuracy-by-volume to the trigger monkeys and do it like the big boys. One shot, one kill.

blogThe 2 interchangeable shroud sections and front cap allow the operator to reconfigure the DAM for any style of play. With all shroud sections installed, the DAM has over 2 feet of standard Picatinny rails.  All side and bottom rails are removable and interchangeable. Picatinny rails are standard for fire arms and will allow attachment of any standard optics, grips, etc. Be the most versatile player on the field with the all new OTF system. Combined with the rotating eye pipe gearing, this system allows the operator of the DAM unprecedented options for loading capabilities. With the slide of the OTF switch, the operator can seamlessly move from traditional hopper fed, to magazine fed loading, and back again at a moments notice. Use your shaped projectile rounds when you need precise shots and go back to regular paint when volume is necessary. The Dye DAM comes standard with a feedneck Cover Plate that can replace the feedneck assembly giving the operator an unbroken top Picatinny Rail compatible with all standard military optics. Reduces your profile and gives your DAM the most realistic look and feel. It also comes with an adjustable cam lock feedneck allows you to securely lock you loader onto your gun without tools. DYE’s cam lock feed neck sits low and tight on the marker making sure your loader stays low profile with the rest of your gear. The Eye Pipe, patent pending, internal design houses multiple critical systems that ensure worry free performance. The polycarbonate pipe shields the self-cleaning anti-chop eye system from dirt and broken paint, ensuring the eyes are always monitoring the breech and ball drop. The seamless pipe is wiped clean by the bolt tip o-ring on every cycle. The Eye Pipe system also eliminates miss feeds and double feeding. In addition it eliminates external eye plates and the potential of stripped or corroded eye plate mounting screws. With even easier Toolless access to the battery and extra thick ergonomic design, this all new grip improves on every aspect of these top-of-their- class grips.
