At its essence, paintball is a competitive game played like any other competitive
game, to win. It requires specific gear, (goggles, a gun/marker, pressurized gas,
and paintballs) so you can safely shoot at others and be shot at.
Paintball is like a more challenging, high-stakes version of tag, hide-and-seek,
or capture the flag. Beyond that, paintball is hard to describe. It can be played
with as few as two people or as many as 500; a game can last 5 minutes or 24 hours;
it's objective might be to take something, bring something, find something, or simply
be the last person standing.
Depending on the field you play, tactics will vary as well. A paintball game will
be different every time, but there's one for sure when you play at Action Paintball
Games: it's an adrenaline rush.
On the contrary, paintball is one of the safest activities out there. Industry standards
like approved paintball masks, thorough safety briefings for players, and limits
on paintball gun velocities help prevent injuries. Also, Action Paintball has highly
trained referees to ensure that everyone follows the rules and stays safe, while
having maximum fun!
It depends on where it hits, whether it breaks or not (balls that just bounce of
tend to be more painful), and what kind of clothing you are wearing. All paintball
markers at Action Paintball Games shoot under the legal limit of 300 feet per second
and we strictly enforce a 3 metre "surrender" rule. Sometimes you won't even feel
a hit. But even when a shot does hurt, it's usually just a quick sting the kind
of thing you say "Ow!" about and then forget about a few seconds later. When the
adrenaline takes over, you'll barely notice.
Definitely. Glasses will fit comfortably under our JT Spectra paintball masks. If
you do wear glasses, let one of our staff know and we will apply some anti-fog solution
to your glasses. All of the goggles used at Action Paintball Games fields are equipped
with thermal double lenses to prevent fogging. There's nothing worse than trying
to play paintball in a set of single lens goggles that keep fogging.
A paintball is a round, gelatine capsule similar to large round vitamin capsules
or bath oil beads. The fill inside is non-toxic, water soluble and biodegradable,
which rinses out of clothing with mild soap.
No experience is necessary. Special attention is given to beginner players with
beginners' games, along with top-line rentals, to guarantee that a fun time is had
by all. From the beginner to the best Pro players in the country, Action Paintball
Games has you covered.
Here at Action Paintball Games, we supply you with camouflage overalls for you to

is available to purchase at Action, ranging from camouflage trucker hats, groin
boxes, neck protectors and chest/back protectors, (females are given free hire of
