Paintball is a physically demanding sport that requires thoughtful preparation to succeed. In addition to bringing standard gear like a marker, paint and goggles, it’s a good idea to have a few other items on hand during a paintball match as well. Check out a few of our favorite paintballing accessories below!
Our first suggestion is especially helpful when playing woodsball in densely forested areas. It can be hard to focus on finding your target when you’re distracted by biting insects. By applying bug spray before a match, you’ll have one less thing to worry about while you play.
It’s always a good idea to wear sunscreen when you play paintball, even on cloudy days. After all, nothing can ruin a long day of paintball quite like a nasty sunburn. We recommend wearing at least SPF 30 sunscreen and reapplying every couple of hours to prevent skin damage from the sun. Be sure to look for “broad spectrum” sunscreen as well, which is designed to protect against both UVA and UVB rays.
Paintballing is a messy endeavor, and a simple hand towel can be an invaluable tool when your goggles get obscured by splattered paint. You can also use a towel to mop sweat off your face and hands in between matches so that you can get back in the action without worrying about excess sweat impacting your performance.
There’s always a possibility that you might get a foot blister when sprinting from cover to cover during a paintball game. Instead of letting these minor injuries sideline you for the rest of the day, bring a package of blister bandages, which are designed to relieve pressure and prevent infection.

If you love paintball as much as we do, you probably own your own paintball gun and equipment. A paintball gun is a big investment, so it pays to know how to properly care for it. Today we’ll address a few helpful maintenance tips that all paintballers should keep in mind.
Before playing, make sure to oil the front and rear bolt O-rings on your marker. Use only enough oil to coat the seals, since too much oil can build up over time and cause mechanical malfunctions.
After each game, clean the marker thoroughly after removing the Co2 or HPA tank. You can wipe down the outside of your gun to remove paint, but avoid using soaps, chemical cleaners or abrasive washcloths.
Store your paintball gun in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Heat and sunlight can damage the tank in particular, since Co2 expands in high temperatures.
Deep Clean Periodically
After every few games, it’s a good idea to disassemble and thoroughly clean your paintball gun. Here’s a handy guide, which includes a list of all the materials you’ll need. To avoid misfires, make sure there’s no gas in your gun before you get started.
Now that you know how to properly maintain your paintball marker, you’re ready to play! If you’re in the West Milford area, we’d love to see you at Battle Creek. With 15 acres of woodlands, hills, paths and fields, we offer the perfect setting for a thrilling paintball experience. Give us a call or contact us online to book your next match today!
Wondering 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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
