If it's your first time, you might get "armor". If you don't, avoid getting shot at a short distance.

First time I went I got shot in the ass from about 3 meters away. Sitting down was unpleasant for the next week or so. Hell, I was lucky I was wearing jeans that day.

Do a barrel roll!

Was the Doctor all out of maturity last time you went for a check-up?

As for TS, just wear a few jumpers, it will give you a bit of an advantage, but getting hit in the hand is bad, so wear some gloves. Have fun!
#11
DO NOT TAKE OFF YOUR MASK FOR ANYTHING.
I remember this one kid got hit and he stood up, took off his mask and said
"Hey guys I'm ou-"
Thats all he had time to say before he was pummeled with paintballs.

Lighten up dude.

To the TS, don't act like rambo, you will get shot. Stay down at all times and make sure you have a decent team. Flanking is the best option.

Get shot *once* you're out.

Once you get hit once, it's not that bad...

Unless you get hit in the hand or neck. I got hit in the back of the neck by friendly fire.
Ouchee.
Anyways, there isn't anything to worry about. Just shoot blindly - the guns are inaccurate anyway.

I shot a ref repeatedly in the head because all I could see was his head until I realised the shouts of "****ing stop that!" wasn't from the voice of someone I knew

Also, 99% of paintball bullets arc like hell, so you have to aim like above the target, even then the chances of you hitting purposefully are slim.

Once, I nearly concussed a friend at paintball. Two of the enemy (including this friend and a ginger who was also a friend) were attempting to hide in the theater of conflict. With my position, I had a fantastic view of these mofos, specifically the fire-haired one so I did let lose. Unfortunately, the other friend had the crown of his head facing my direction and he proceeded to get a decadent amount of paintballs to his cranium. The referees had to stop the match and then proceeded to help him leave the game.

The game started again and I attempted to destroy the orange-follicled individual again.

I did feel quite bad at the time, but in hindsight, my position and accuracy was spot on, so I feel it was worth it.

Don't do a Barrel Roll, you can f*** up the piping from the CO2 Canister (?) but I think they can kick you out??? I've never tried it, but always ask 1st

Bring gloves, preferably thick ones. Getting shot in the hand is a pain.

Also, another pair of gloves to stuff down your trousers is also recommended.

Both of these. First time I was shot, the ball hit my nail and slammed my hand into the gun.

FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU.

Getting shot in the crotch isn't desirable either.
#28
Don't wear loose shoes. Last time I went paintballing my friend was going through this ditch bit.. was pretty muddy and his shoe never reappeared.

Other than that.. don't be scared. Once you're running about and getting into it it honestly doesn't hurt that badly when you get shot

1. Wear a cup.
2. NEVER take off your mask. Your mask will fog up unless you spent like 38479623 million dollars on it. Don't duck and try to whipe it off. Everyone will be in the same situation as you man.
3. Wear a baseball cap backwards!!! The beek of the hat will help protect the back of your neck. Also this hat will keep paint out of your hair if you happen to be shot in the head.
4. Dress in layers. You will get incredibly hot. So being able to take off a layer of clothing is very nice.
5. Don't cheat. Be a man, Do the right thing.
6. Always take a look over your shoulder everyonce and a while. To look for them creepers
7.Fap
8.Cum Blooood
9. ????
10. PROFIT (use as paintballls if you run out, it will be like a FLAMETHROWER)
11. See if neckguards are available. They are like about a centimeter thick and wrap around your neck and velcro at the back. They are a spandex like material and DO help alot if you do get shot in the front of the neck.
12. If your gun starts making several shots and weird sounds then it means that you are more then likely out of CO2. Just duck down and wait. You are now a distraction to the other team. When this happens it is ungodly loud and obnoxious. It will probably scare you too Hahaha. Expect some paint your way..
13. And lucky thirteen is HAVE FUN.

Armour!? Only girls wear armour!

I got shot in the hand from about two metres away five years ago and I still have a faint scar but that is the worst of it.

It won't hurt that much if you are a man, it just isn't smart if you go out paintballing in your boxers.

Being scared of being shot will be worse.
Quote by Necrophagist777

I agree, i always help people up. At the last show we all protected this little kid who was tying his shoe in the middle of the pit.

Remember Paintballing is exactly like Halo, just keep jumping and noone can hit you.

It really doesn't hurt that bad after you get over the fear of being shot.

Just play, and do rambo if you want... It can be fun, and if your playing with a bunch of other noobs too you can dominate that way.

-edit-

Yeah like the other dudes said, keep your mask on at all times and wear gloves. I usually wear a baseball cap backwards with my mask on, to protect the back of my neck a little too.

-double edit-

At my local fields there is a "walk or die" rule, where if you get up to someone really close you can shout "WALK OR DIE" and they can choose to either walk out of the game, or take the shots point blank and try to fight back. I can't tell you how many times I've been out of paint/air and intimidated someone into walking.

Just because your out of paint doesn't mean you out of the fight!

If you want to get really technical about it..

2. Bang sticks on drums.

Bring Napalm. It will take care of the trees. There for the opponent wont have anywheres to hide. You balls may melt and your gun may just shoot out a hot liquid glue.

Unless they have a fuel rod.


And spit on your visor before you put it on, believe me,
it works better than that anti-fogging rubbish.

Tight shoes, baggy pants, gloves are things I usually go for. Always keep your mask on, not sure where you are playing but if you are going to a facility, leave the mask on until you get out of the arena. I got nailed in the face by a unintentional paintball after I was out and took my mask off as I was leaving.

Split your team into two fire teams, and use one to flank them. Avoid getting shot in the head.
