How to Dress for a Game of Paintball this Fall

Paintball GroupWondering how to dress for your first (or hundredth) game of paintball? Well, there are different outfits you should consider, especially during the Fall season. Here’s our handy guide to help you find comfortable, practical apparel for your next game this Fall season!

Cover Up

Yes, it may seem counterintuitive to cover up when you’ll be running around, especially if it’s warm outside. The Fall season can be pretty warm sometimes, and other times, it can be very cold. However, wearing long sleeves and long pants will protect your skin from paint (which is nontoxic and harmless but annoying to wash off) and reduce the welts that can occur when paintballs hit bare skin.

Dress in Layers

If it’s relatively cool out, layer up with sweatshirts and sweatpants to further reduce the impact of paintballs on your body. If you’re a paintball enthusiast and enjoy playing during crazy weather, we recommend bringing rain gear and mud gear.

Go Dark and Wear Camo

Save the all-white ensemble for later. Not only do dark colors reduce staining, but they also help you avoid detection during a paintball game. Paintball paint is washable, but you may find yourself crawling through mud or grass, which can ruin light-colored clothing. The goal is to stay hidden from your opponents so wearing camo can help you stay undetected in the woods or other fields.

Stay Loose

Avoid wearing tight-fitting clothes or anything that will constrict your movement. You want to stay as nimble as possible during your game.

Sneakers or Boots

Choose footwear that’s easy to move in and that you don’t mind getting dirty. Boots are recommended to play in because they are durable and good for rough terrains.

Safety Matters

Wear a hat or beanie to protect the top of your head, as well as gloves to keep your hands welt-free. Of course, you should also wear a pair of protective goggles at all times.

Essential Tips for Your First Paintball Game

Playing PaintballGetting ready to play paintball for the very first time? Your first game of paintball might seem a little intimidating, but the truth is you don’t have anything to worry about. Just follow these helpful tips and you’ll be sure to have a blast.

Dress in layers if you’re afraid of getting hit by paintballs.

If you’ve never been hit by a paintball before, you might be concerned about whether or not it will be a painful experience. Paintballs can sting a little bit, depending on where you get hit, but in the heat of battle you’ll probably hardly feel a thing. If you’re still worried about it, though, a heavy sweatshirt can give you some additional peace of mind.

Keep your mask on at all times.

Regardless of your experience level, it’s important to keep your face covered with a protective mask at all times. While getting hit with a paintball isn’t nearly as painful as some people make it out to be, a paintball can do some serious damage if it hits you in the face. It’s always best to keep your face mask on until the referees tell you it’s safe to remove it.

Strategize with your teammates before taking the field.

One of the reasons paintball is so much fun is because it gives you the chance to coordinate with your teammates to maximize your chances of success. Before you take the field, talk to your team and come up with a rough plan for how you’re going to approach the match. This can give you a tactical advantage and help to build camaraderie among your teammates.

Don’t beat yourself up if you make mistakes.

Chances are, you’re not going to be the best paintball player on the field when you play for the first time. Don’t let it get you down! The goal isn’t just to win; it’s to have fun and blow off some steam in the process. Treat your mistakes as learning opportunities, and do your best to relax and have a good time.

Improve Your Paintball Marker’s Performance With These Upgrades

Paintball PlayerIn the heat of a fast-paced match, it’s important for your paintball marker to perform as well as it possibly can. The good news is, there are several straightforward upgrades you can make to your marker to give yourself a leg-up on the competition. Check out three easy ways to improve the performance of your paintball marker below!

The Barrel

Frustrated with your marker’s accuracy? If no amount of practice seems to be making your shots more accurate, you may want to consider upgrading your barrel. There are plenty of barrel upgrade options to choose from, but 12-16-inch barrels typically offer the best accuracy. Just keep in mind that especially long barrels can reduce the range of your shots. Short barrels, on the other hand, can offer additional range at the expense of accuracy.

The Trigger

Want to improve your rate of fire? A trigger upgrade might be just what you’re looking for. A double trigger is an effective, affordable and easy-to-install option for paintball beginners. This will make your trigger easier to pull and allow you to shoot more paintballs, faster. Other more advanced trigger upgrades include response triggers and electronic triggers.

The Tank

Want to make your marker more efficient and accurate? Swapping your Co2 tank for a high-pressure air, or HPA, tank is probably the right move for you. This will not only allow you to shoot your paintball marker faster and more accurately, it will also improve its performance in cold temperatures. HPA tanks can be considerably more expensive than Co2 tanks, but they offer a significant upgrade in performance.
