Make your Own Paintball Field

Paintball Players Took The Defense In The Shelter

Ever dreamed of having your own private paintball battlefield? Having the ability to host your own paintball games without having to deal with wait times or extra costs to use a field are definitely some major perks to creating your own field. Here we will list some fast and easy steps that you can take to fashion your own paintball field.

Find a Location

How many times have you heard the phrase, “Location, location, location?” Well creating your own paintball field is no different. Your paintball field will be most efficient if you have a spacious backyard, own a piece of private land, or have been given prior permission on a plot to use. Do not go out and assume you can occupy any random space that you have found for your own use. Be wary of your intended field’s surroundings and be smart about your location; make sure that it is in an area that is safe and secure. Remember to check with local laws and be 100% sure that you are complying with all regulations; the last thing you want is to get fined for disregarding something so easily avoidable.

Create Obstacles

Aside from actually playing; building structures and fortifications for your field is probably going to be the most creative part of crafting your own playing ground. If you want to speed up the process, you can use any available items such as old furniture, mattresses, cardboard boxes, and scrap wood to use as small bunkers for your field. If it is big enough for you to hide behind and you don’t care about getting some paint on it, it will likely be a perfect fit. If they are accessible to you: empty barrels, wooden planks, camouflage netting, and sandbags also make for some amazing makeshift cover. If you are feeling a bit more inspired and you have the resources, you can build some bunkers out of raw materials such as creating small pillbox style fortifications out of cement and concrete bricks or even dig some trenches for people to lay in for cover. This step allows for imagination as it is all about giving your field that special touch. Be sure to double check your work for anything that could be hazardous to the players on your field, such as rusty metal edges, exposed nails, etc.

Get your Gear Ready

If you have not purchased all of your gear yet, then now is the time. Paintball guns, modifications, safety gear, C02 tanks, and paintballs are all essential items needed to play a quality game of paintball. The importance of the use of safety gear on your paintball field cannot be stressed enough and it is highly encouraged to take the necessary precautions to purchase what you need in order to have an awesome, yet safe time.

Invite your Friends

Of course; no paintball games on your newly created field would be complete without players. Send out those texts, emails, phone calls, and online messages to your friends and rally the troops for battle. You and your friends can plan tournaments, create game scenarios like capture the flag, or duke it out with whichever competitions appeal to you.

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.

The Best Paintball Music

heavy metal

When getting into a zone of playing paintball, having music can be an advantageous piece for your mental game. It can help maintain focus, take away nerves, and increases the adrenaline rush associated with combat.

The hard rock, heavy metal genre is overwhelmingly the collective favorite to listen to while playing. In particular, many enjoy Ramstein and Marilyn Manson.

Here’s a list of songs I personally recommend when playing on the field:

  • Trapt – Headstrong
  • Disturbed – Stricken
  • Queen – I Want It All
  • AC/DC – Shoot to Thrill
  • Metallica – Day That Never Comes
  • Metallica – One
  • Green Day – Enemy
  • Evanescence – Bring Me to Life
  • My Chemical Romance – Black Parade
  • 7 Lions – Born To Run
  • Rev Theory – I Hear Voices
  • Fall Out Boy – Sugar We’re Going Down

These are the jams that get the blood pumping and the adrenaline revved. I’m still the nicest guy on the field and I always carry a proper attitude. My AFTER paintball music is entirely different.

How to Become a Paintball Pro

professional paintballer

Professional sports are one of the most lucrative industries in the world today, and it seems that everybody wants in on the action. Due to its success, the industry has expanded to include non-traditional sports such as video gaming and arm wrestling. Competitive paintballing is another extreme sport that’s gained tons of exposure and popularity over the years, and paying leagues are starting to pop up in various places throughout the country. If you want to make a living entertaining yourself and others, here are some tips on how to make it as a paintball pro.

Make Up Your Mind, and Set Your Goals

Playing professional sports is a dream for many people, but the truth is that most won’t ever make it big. However, this fact should not keep you from enjoying what you love to do. Most professional athletes never expected to go to the pros. They simply stuck with their passion year after year, while brushing off every word of discouragement. This is how you should approach becoming a paintball pro as well. Set your goals, one step at a time, and do everything in your power to achieve them. Making it to the pros is both a matter of physical strength and mental strength. If you don’t have the will to see things through, you’ve already given up.

Practice like Your Life Depends on It

It’s true that some paintballers are just naturally good at the game, but consistent practice can transform any newbie into an expert player. Like with any other sport, you’re going to have to dedicate most of your free time to getting better. That means practicing drills over and over until the movements become natural to you.

Some of the fundamental techniques you’re going to have to master include: stationary shooting, running and gunning, snap shooting, and ducking for cover. Stationary shooting is basic target practice. The exercise builds your accuracy, precision, and timing. Running and gunning is something that all paintball pros can do very well. When you’re running around, you’re defenseless. Shooting and running is primarily a defensive maneuver, but it can also be used to ambush unsuspecting opponents. Snap shooting refers to popping out from behind cover to fire a few shots, then retreating to your safe spot. You’ll need to master both ducking for cover and snap shooting to be an effective player.

Get Into Great Physical Shape

Paintballing is a very physical activity. To keep up with the best of the best, you should train like a serious athlete. This means building stamina and strength using traditional methods. Running is the most effective way to enhance your cardiovascular health so that you don’t burn out during play. Weight training will give you the muscles to perform explosive movements and lug around all that heavy gear without tiring too quickly. Condition each day, and supplement your training with nutritious meals and lots of rest.

Enter Local and Amateur Competitions for Exposure

To become a paintball pro, you have to showcase your skills. The only real way to do so is to enter every competition you can. Only when you’ve caught the attention of pro recruiters, sponsors, and other industry big wigs will you have a shot at going pro.

Network with Other Players

During your competitions, get to know your teammates and even your opponents. They can provide you with some very valuable advice on the technicalities of paintball and how to get noticed. Having the right connections can exponentially boost your chances of becoming a paintball pro.

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.

Common Paintball Injuries

paintball hit

 

Paintball is a sport that is a lot of fun, but it can also come equipped with substantial risk of injury. While the safety gear that is used to play paintball is generally sufficient for protection, it cannot always 100 percent effective. Players can suffer injuries that range from mild to very severe, but the vast majority of players will remain relatively safe providing they wear the right gear and take safety precautions. Here is a look at some of the most common paintball injuries that players incur.

Scrapes and Cuts

While people think that the most common paintball injuries result from getting hit by  fast-flying paintballs; scrapes and cuts are more likely to occur. Players can easily scrape, bruise and cut themselves when they are in the midst of heavy paintball action. They may jump behind a barrier for safety or dive out of the way, forcefully brushing against an object with enough impact to leave a mark. Players can help to prevent these types of injuries by wearing ample safety padding and being careful about how they maneuver through the paintball course.

Knee and Ankle Injuries

Just like all other types of action sports, a very common type of injury in paintball is twisting a knee or ankle. Players frequently make sharp turns while they are engaging in a paintball battle. These types of sudden movements can certainly lead to injuries if players are not careful. It is best to warm up and get a good stretch in before playing to help prevent these kinds of injuries. Wearing supportive footwear, ankle braces and knee braces can also help in prevention.

Bruises

Paintballs are fired out of the muzzles of paintball guns at around 300 feet per second. When the balls hit unprotected skin at this speed, they are highly likely to leave a nasty bruise. This is why it is so important for players to wear the right safety garments. Even with high quality paintball armor on, there will always be little gaps where paintballs have a chance to impact the skin. Luckily, these injuries are not serious even though they may be a bit sensitive to the touch and even gruesome to look at.

Head and Eye Injuries

Although these are the least common types of injuries that occur to paintball players, they need to be discussed due to the seriousness of their damage. A paintball that hits a player’s eye could be so severe it could potentially lead to the loss of the eye. Players must always wear high-quality safety goggles to prevent such a scenario. Also, players should never shoot at each other inside of a distance of 10 feet to help thwart any accidents.

Head injuries can be even more dangerous. Players who fall and bang their head while playing could experience concussions, brain hemorrhaging and even death. It is crucial that players always wear quality safety helmets to constantly keep their heads protected during paintball matches.

As long as players are always diligent about wearing the right safety equipment and playing safely, they can keep their paintball injuries to a minimum.
