Paintball is a sport in which players shoot small rubbery spheres at one another called (you guessed it) paintballs. Paintballs when stuck, breaks and leaves a paint residue. In turn, when hit with a paintball there is proof that a player has been hit/shot. Paintball is usually shot with 0.68 caliber sized paintballs. When paintballing players are required to wear a full frontal face mask in order to protect from serious injury. In addition to a splatter mark it is common for paintballs to leave small quarter-sized bruise and/or welt on the skin once shot. In rare cases, paintballs can cause bleeding. This is usually the result of either a player shooting too “hot” (fast) or the paintball hits an area of the body with little fat or muscle. In any case paintball hits do hurt, but only for a short time. The pain intensity is best explained as being the equivalent as a bee sting.
