Paintball is a fun and very active sport which allows team members to bond and also get fit. The game was developed in the 80’s and has been quite popular especially when the game was introduced as a sporting event during organized competitions. The rule of the game is pretty easy and it can be played either indoors or outdoors. A game venue or field can be scattered with either artificial or natural terrain in which players can effectively utilize as cover. The game objectives vary depending on the agreement of the teams but it can include ammunition limits, capture the flag or objects, defending or attacking a set point or area, or elimination.
Getting started with the game
Always remember to wear the right set of clothing and footwear. Some paintball venues are set outdoors so it is best to wear the right attire that can protect you from the elements. Most paintball venues would provide the players with appropriate gears such as goggles or vest. If you are not too familiar with the rules of the venue then make sure to get in touch with them first and see what they have to offer.
New players can use a semi-automatic paintball gun so they won’t have to worry too much on how to operate the equipment. The semi-automatic gun can be the best paintball gun since they are designed to be user-friendly
There are generally 5 kinds of paintball guns which are semi-automatic, pistols, pumps, electronic and stock. Many paintball enthusiasts and especially those who have a few extra bucks would choose the electronic paintball gun because of its functionality and sheer power. This type of gun is designed to shoot out at least 3 paintballs at a time when you press the trigger. Pistols on the other hand are great backup guns.
