this is my first time so i dont know what to expect. i know to take cover and that its going to hurt like hell. so how can i stop some damage? should i wear like 2 shirt and a sweater? A cup maybe? i have a face mask but dont want to hit in the neck. i'm going in a few hours. should i just wear extra clothes or invest in some protection gear before i go? i'm just nervous about getting hit in the nuts and neck/head/face.

Don't be a pussy. You need to cut the nipples out of your shirt, pull your dick and balls through your fly, and spread your arse wherever you go.

The only thing that really hurts is when you got shot in the neck. Dont worry about all that other ****, itll sting like hell for 30 sec and then its done. Then you have some awesome welts to show people.

It honestly doesnt hurt very much unless ur hit from very close or something. I usually do wear a cup though, just in case. If the place ur going to is like where I go and is heavily wooded, wear jeans, maybe a long sleeve shirt. For the most part people dont really aim for ur head, unless theyre gonna be dicks about it.

It honestly doesn't hurt much. You'll be so pumped up with adrenaline you won't really feel it. If you were just standing about and someone shot you it'd hurt like hell, but in the heat of the moment you hardly notice it.

EDIT:
Oh, and make sure you tie you shoelaces. Last time I played my mate didn't, so when we jumped through this ditch thing, his shoe came off in the mud and he spent the remaining ten minutes of the game looking for it We never did find it

Wearing gloves is a good idea. Jeans can help, and maybe an extra t-shirt if you want to be extra sure, but it doesn't really hurt that much. Definitely gloves though, 'cause getting shot on your hand hurts like hell.
#13
Make sure you wear gloves.

It really doesn't hurt that much. You may get a little bruise and the most I ever had was a cut on my hand but that's because I didn't have any gloves on.

It can sting sometimes but it's seriously overhyped. Make sure you take cover. Pretend you really are going to die if you get shot. It is sometimes quite fun to go on suicide runs though. We won once by doing that. Good times..

First time I went paintballing I got shot right in the throat. Thats the only time it really hurt

Wearing a cup is a great idea. My dad learned the hard way. Obviously he isn't sterile, but that had to hurt like a bitch.

If you get shot up close it could hurt, but I guess that depends on the people you're playing with. I've never played paintball, but my younger sister has, and she said it hurts less than airsoft, and airsoft isn't that bad.

It'd never sound out of context:

it doesnt hurt as much as people say, they say that to freak you out, but wear a cup that does hurt lol, o and remember dont spend to much time aiming cause then you make yourself a target, but dont pray and spray either cause then your just wasting your paintballs, id say wear a jacket you dont like as much to protect your clothes, i like hoodies cause they cover the back of your head and neck

Well there should be a rule to not shoot under a certain distance and the mask may cover the front if your neck. Just wear a scarf if your really worried.

Sure thing, bud.

It's common paint balling etiquette (and any paintballers here can back me up) for first timers to remove their shirt and be a target before the game starts. This is commonly known as "tie-dying".

It kind of sucks but that's how it works.

So to let them know you know what you're doing, show up, remove the shirt, and scream "tie-dye me!!!!!"

Dude, it doesn't hurt that bad, believe me.

As for some other tips, don't even run and shoot at the same time. That only works in action movies, in paintball it makes you run slower, are more exposed, and odds are that you won't hit anything while running anyways. When you get behind cover, peek your head out. If nobody is there to shoot you, keep your head peeked out and your gun at the ready. You do this because when the enemy has somebody behind cover, and THEY peek their head out, you'll be ready to shoot them Also, work with the people around you. Your team probably won't have a set strategy where everyone has a job, however if you work with the people around you then you can at least make sure that your area of the field is getting their job done and killing some bad guys.

That's all i can think of, best of luck bro, you're gonna have a lot of fun

To reiterate the above, it doesn't hurt that bad. Just don't get shot in the neck/balls/face and you'll be fine.

I've full-auto'd myself in the hand, at point blank range, on almost an illegal PSI and I was fine. Don't be a pussy.

oh man i love paintball i used to be so good at it, but we grew out of it

i was an enforcer id rush and try and trip them up unexpectadly

if you hide you will lose period, cuz your so easy to be rushed

i dunno the size of your teams, and im guessing this isnt tournament but oh well, you need 2 ppl who are like anchors at the back, they are used for cover fire, but they will need to move around otherwise they will be open targets, 2 others go to the middle and are not enforcers but more like snipe shots, the enforcers run at the other team pretty much, and if your fast and get them hemmed in you will almost undoubtably win

anyways have fun man paintball=the ****
