Most of the people who enjoy pain ball will let you know of the adrenaline fuelled thrill ride that shooting these packed paint pellets gives you. As you flick that semi-automatic trigger and a stream of fast paint ammo flies over 1 after the other you will feel like a commando!
Paintball can be split into 2 areas:
Also referred to as a ‘scenario’ game, woods ball takes place in a forest. You will use the natural surrounding and habitat to hide, chase and surprise your opposing team. Dress in camouflage and get down and dirty to really feel like a Marine. This is the closest thing to combat you will get without the worry of actually being killed – although getting hit by a paintball is no fun!
This takes place in abandoned warehouses and factories. Massive inflatable obstruction are usually found to hide behind along with barrels and such which can be used as barriers for protection.

How to play
It is essential to gain some knowledge before reaching the gaming area. In this blog, I have given some tips that will help you to enjoy paintballing in each and every way.
Though this activity is an incredible amount of fun, it has chances to hurt you or cause pain. It will not hurt too much especially with the adrenaline that will be running through your body but it can leave a nasty bruise and you must always protect your eyes, ears and privates.
Wear suitable clothing
You know well that you are going to indulge in paintballing activity, right? Then make sure not to wear your favorite clothes. Paint balling will leave you completely covered in paint and the paint will ruin and stain your clothes. Most people choose to wear fatigues and many establishments will rent you the markers (guns) clothing and protection. It can also get hot so be prepared to be able to carry a drink with you too.
The shoes you are going to wear should be same as the color of your outfit. You will be easily targeted if you wear shoes of alternate colors. Also be aware that woods ball games can be wet and muddy underfoot so it’s a good idea to wear strong shoes that can grip well.
Overall Paintballing is one of the best and most intensely fun things you can do with your clothes on! It’s always a good idea to rent everything you can at first but the more you get into it the more you should look to buy a pistol.
