Before using a paintball grenade, it’s a good idea to get to know exactly how your grenade operates. A lot of the paint grenades available are made with surgical tubing materials that are filled with paint, which are folded and clipped at the end. When you unclip the end of the grenade, the tube will begin to bounce frantically and shoot paint in all different directions.
Using your grenade properly:
1. Make sure you get close enough to your opposite team, especially when there are multiple opposing team members standing close to each other. The farther away, the harder the aim; along with other variables that go into to getting a precise hit.
2. Now, you want to pull the pin on the grenade and throw it towards your opponents so it lands very close to them, preferably in the center of where they’re standing. Then be on the lookout with your paintball gun ready to tag anyone that’s trying to get away from the grenade. This is a great way to tag your opponents if they haven’t been tagged already as they will surely be in a state of shock.
3. You can also ask the referee to do a quick paint check if your opponents didn’t call it when you tagged them with the grenade. Sometimes players might not know they were tagged because grenades don’t provide the same impact that paintball guns do, so there is a good chance hit players never even felt the blow.
Use your grenades wisely, as they can be a bit pricey if you are using them too often.
You can add a new dimension and a lot of fun to your scenario game with the use of paintball grenades.
