First Time Guide

Q: What do I wear?

A: Wear some clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. It is recommended that you wear long pants and long sleeves. You may want to add an extra layer, but take a look at the weather first.

Q: Do I need a mask?

A: Yes! You must wear a mask at all times on the field. If you do not have one you can rent one from us, for $4.00 daily

Q: Does it hurt?

A: Paintballs may sting for a minute after getting hit, but this will quickly fade. The sting is similar to someone flicking you.

Q: How much does it cost?

A: Our field fee is $15.00. You will also need paint which varies in price. If you do not have equipment you will need to rent that as well. Take a look at our rental rates here.

Q: What do I do if I get hit?

A: Keep that mask down! Hold your gun up in the air and verbally state that you are out. Choose a good path and walk to the side of the field as quickly as possible with your gun in the air.

Q: What do I do if I have a question at the field?

A: Ask someone. Almost everybody will be happy to help.

Q: What are barrel covers?

A: These go over the tip of your barrel. You must have your barrel cover on your Paintball Gun when you are not on the playing field. This will protect you and others from a mis-fire.


Communicate – Talk to your teammates while you play. Let them know where everyone is and how many players are left. Ask them for help or cover fire.

Move – Don’t just stand there! Don’t make yourself an easy target. Constantly move. Poke your head out of different parts of the bunker. Move from one position to another (if it is safe).

Aim – It is easy to just point the gun and shoot. Be sure that you are pointing at something worth hitting.

Plan – Whether you are a veteran tournament player or a beginner, it is important to create a strategy for the particular field and/or players you are playing. You may want to walk over the field ahead of time to get an idea of the possible shots.

Your not the only player – Play as a team. Listen to each other and play the field accordingly. If Jim has the right side covered, watch his left side.
