Winter Paintball Tips for the Cold Weather

Believe it or not, many paintball players like to get out during the winter season and play paintball. Of course, this could be a very cold experience, and it doesn’t feel great to get hit with paintballs in the cold weather. For the once in a great while paintball player, this doesn’t seem like the best time to go out and play, but for the ones who want to get better and have some fun outside in the winter, it can be the perfect time.

Practice Makes Perfect

One of the biggest benefits of playing paintball in the winter is that it makes playing paintball when the weather turns warm much better. Winter paintball isn’t for every player, but it can provide you with an opportunity to practice your game, learn strategies, and not be confined to the indoors the entire winter season.

Battle Creek Paintball & Airsoft Fields

At Battle Creek Paintball, we provide paintball and airsoft fields in New Jersey for paintball players to play in a field and on a course during the spring and the summer seasons. When it’s nice outside, it’s the perfect time to gather your friends and get a big paintball or airsoft game going at a course.

The winter can be a time where you orchestrate smaller games on your own property. This allows for you to practice before the season of paintball gets going.

Here are some tips for playing paintball in the winter:

Wear Warm Clothing – The benefit of playing paintball in the winter is you can dress with layers to keep warm and not feel the effect of the paintball hitting you. Wear gloves, a hat under your mask, a winter jacket, snow pants, etc.

Smaller Playing Field – If you have property allowing you to roam around and play paintball, this is a very good thing. However, you do have to create a course for yourself, and in the winter, it’s best if you shorten the course to make it more competitive and less exhausting.

Return to the Indoors if It’s Too Cold – The winter season can be tough for playing paintball, so if it does get too cold outside, it’s best if you put the game on hold and return to the indoors to stay warm.

At Battle Creek Paintball, we look forward to having everyone return to our paintball and airsoft fields to play paintball in the spring season.

Gift Ideas for the Paintball Player on Your List

Playing Paintball As the shopping season quickly approaches, it’s important to get out early before the rush. If you have a paintball player on your gift list coming up, you have plenty of great gifts to choose from. Between clothing, marker upgrades and other accessories, you can find a variety of useful paintball gear that your friend or family member will be sure to love. Check out a few of our favorite paintball-themed gift ideas below!

HPA Tanks

High pressure air (HPA) tanks offer a few notable performance upgrades over standard Co2 tanks. First and foremost, they are more reliable and less prone to malfunctions than Co2 tanks. They also perform much better in cold temperatures, which can be very beneficial if you plan on continuing to play paintball during the winter.

Dual-Pane Goggles

Safety goggles are an essential part of any paintball player’s kit, but not all goggles are created equal. Inexpensive single-pane goggles tend to fog up during extended paintball matches, which can put players at a severe disadvantage. Dual-pane goggles, on the other hand, are much better at regulating temperature and condensation. This, in turn, makes them less likely to fog up and obscure your vision in the heat of an intense match.

Elbow Pads

Paintball matches often involve quite a bit of diving and crawling that can be tough on arms if they’re not adequately protected. Paintball elbow pads offer an inexpensive way to protect the elbows and forearms, making it easier to play without fear of injury.

Paintball Match Packages

If you’re still having trouble finding the perfect gift, why not give your loved one the gift of a great paintball experience on one of the fields at Battle Creek? We offer several affordable packages that are ideal for both seasoned veterans and newcomers to the sport. To learn more, feel free to give us a call at (973) 545-2556 today!

Why Fall is a Good Season to Play Paintball

Paintball is a very fun and strategic game. It is almost always better to play paintball in warmer weather, but in the dead of summer, it can be very hot and humid to be out for long hours of the day. When playing paintball, it’s important to dress appropriately due to the fact that you will be getting pelted at some point with paintballs.

Fall is usually a very good season to play paintball because the weather is a little bit cooler, but not too cold. You still have sunshine and somewhat warm weather, which helps with choosing how to dress. You can still give yourself protection with your clothes without being overheated.

The Benefits of Playing Paintball

Not many people think of paintball as the first activity to jump into when the nice weather rolls around. Paintball has many great benefits, but you have to remember that in the summer, it can get pretty hot outside, so it’s important to have that in mind.

  • Exercise Your Body
  • Adrenaline Rush (Blood Flow)
  • Learn the Game
  • Tactical Moving
  • Critical Thinking Skills
  • Develop Strategy

These are all pretty good benefits of playing paintball. You’ll learn new skills and have the opportunity to spend time with your friends doing an activity that everyone can enjoy.

Prepare Yourself for Warm Weather While Playing Paintball

Like we said above, playing paintball in the summer can be hot. You’ll need to make sure you bring enough water to stay hydrated. When it comes to clothing, you’ll have to consider the warm temperatures, but you don’t want to just wear shorts and a t-shirt. The paintballs won’t feel great if you get hit on the bare leg or arms.

It’s recommended to wear paints and a long sleeve shirt at least to protect your skin against the paintballs. You can wear a jacket or vest as well but remember that you’ll be warmer with more clothing on during the summer season.
