You’re not alone. You may have shot many thousands of paintballs over the years, but do you really know what these paint-filled projectiles made of?
First of all, rest assured that you’re always getting hit with materials that are completely non-toxic and biodegradable. If you want a closer look into the construction of a paintball, read on.
Paintballs consist of two parts:
The shell is the outer portion that breaks apart when your paintball makes impact with a surface – ideally a member of the opposing team. The shell is almost always made of gelatin, and it functions similarly to a supplement capsule. It contains the fill, but will break upon heavy impact. It’s important to store your paintballs properly, because the gelatin can harden in the sun or when exposed to air for a long time. When the gelatin gets too hard, you won’t get that satisfying splat when you make contact with an opponent.
The fill consists of dye and solvent that marks your opponent once the shell breaks apart. The contents of the fill vary, but usually consist of water-soluble dyes contained within polyethylene glycol. Some cheaper variants are made with an oil base, but these are harder to wash out of clothing and not as environmentally friendly.

Wondering how to dress for your first (or hundredth) game of paintball? Here’s our handy guide to help you find comfortable, practical apparel for your next game.
Yes, it may seem counterintuitive to cover up when you’ll be running around, especially if it’s warm outside. 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.
If it’s relatively cool out, layer up with sweatshirts and sweatpants to further reduce the impact of paintballs on your body.
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.
Avoid wearing tight-fitting clothes or anything that will constrict your movement. You want to stay as nimble as possible during your game.
Choose footwear that’s easy to move in and that you don’t mind getting dirty.
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.

If you’ve recently fallen in love with playing paintball, it might make sense for you to purchase your own paintball gun instead of renting one every time you want to play. But before you invest in a paintball gun, it’s important to spend some time considering which one would be right for you. You can start by asking yourself these four questions!
Are you going to play paintball every weekend, or is your goal to get out there and play once every month or two? If you’re going to be playing regularly, investing in a higher-end paintball gun isn’t a bad idea. But if you don’t think you’re going to be able to commit to playing more than 10 times a year or so, you might want to start with a more inexpensive entry-level model.
A basic entry-level paintball gun is great for most beginners, but your choice of upgrades may be somewhat limited in comparison to more advanced models. If you plan on upgrading and altering your gun to suit your needs and play style, be sure to choose a gun that is compatible with your desired modifications.
Are you the type of paintball player who is always on the move when you play? If so, you’re going to want a small, compact paintball gun by your side that’s easy to carry around. On the other hand, if you’re the type of player who prefers to support your team as a sniper, a larger gun with improved accuracy might be a better option for you. Your style of play should ultimately dictate which paintball gun you buy.
At the end of the day, your budget is going to play a big part in your choice of paintball gun. Look for something that fits well within your budget so that you can afford to invest in other paintball accessories as well. You can always upgrade to a better gun later once you gain more experience and know what you value in a paintball gun.
