Meh... They pack a punch and the first one will be kinda shocking how hard they hit.. But once you're into the game it's not painful and makes it all the more exciting to not want to get hit.

I wanna go paintballing again

EDIT: Put your ammo pack on your belt in front of your balls.

Ya a skinny guy right? Wear baggier clothes, that way the balls won't be hitting the skin straight away, they'll have to go against the air trapped in ya clothes, slowing them down slightly, and reducing impact.

are you guys taking into account that im heaps skinny?

So am I, just wear wear relatively baggy clothes, don't stress. It's really not that painful, just enough to encourage you to keep your head down

It's not that bad, although in saying that I've only been shot in the arse with a paint ball gun so I guess that's only part of your body that has some padding so to speak.

The main thing you have to worry about really is your pride, if your friends are on a different team and they annihilate you don't expect to hear the end of it.

Big guys may have more fat or muscle to absorb the impact, most of the pain comes from the paint ball splashing against the external skin layer anyway. Being skinny won't make the pain that much worse.

in ancient egypt, the game was called painball and was played by throwing carved rocks at each other.

the modern variant is a bit more gentle.

It depends where you get hit, face hits don't hurt at all but daze you a little, places like the neck and hands hurt quite a bit, and of course the balls and arse, really its just more of a shock when you get hit, especially if it comes out of nowhere.

One thing i will say is that with the adrenaline pumping its easy to get a little clumsy, a few years ago, we all darted off down the field when the game started, i was running at full speed and just tripped over a branch and landed on my face, it didn't hurt much but it could have been worse, and last time i went i slid across the foor on my knees to some cover, but it was on concrete and my knee came down on a jagged stone, so that really hurt and what sucked even more was that i was being shot at the whole time, made it to the cover but it still hurt alot more than a paintball hit.
WHOMP

Well...i kinda have my own gun, n the range and power is a lot higher than the stock guns that ya get to play with, and i shot someone from quite a distance, n then watched as they wiped the paint off, so i quietly called a marshall over, told him to watch- shot the guy again, he wiped the paint off, marshall saw this time .............unfortunately i was hiding right near the entrane to the dead zone, n the guy whacked me in the back of the head as he walked past.
#27
When my friends and I did it we weren't wearing any T-shirts under the overalls, and it wasn't really painful then! You'll be fine if you wear clothes, it won't hurt that much then.

What an asshole, he should even be on the field, the only time i think its ok to rub the paint off is if its as soon as the game starts, everyone sprays paintballs down the other side of the area, and it sucks to get hit before you have even done anything, mainly because you feel conned out of a game.

im also assuming itl hurt more if your closer?



Not necessarily dude, depends on where ya get hit.

Man I shit my pants the first time I was shot with one. They pack a punch. But when you're out there, adrenaline takes away 90% of the pain. It's the after days that you gotta worry about.

Paintball is so fun. They do it in a ravine type thing out here. It has the ravine, and then a really big rocky hill covered in giant boulders for capture the flag. It's the most fun I think I've ever had.

I'm probably skinnier than you.

I've taken balls (ololol) to the top and back of the head, and the hand which have all drawn blood. The adreneline will keep you from complaining.

If they give you overalls or something, you'll be absolutely fine, and the worst you could get for is what I got.

If you're wearing your own clothes, take something that covers your arms and legs, if you're really worried. Really stings the skin. (And makes you bleed if it's from really close.)
#33
yeah, seriously dude, I'm a skinny little bitch and I go paintballing with my mates all the time. Naturally, I'm half-ninja so I barely ever get hit (the other half is giant tortoise... don't ask what my forefathers did, it's their business, not mine, nor yours) but when you get hit, it may sting initially, but it's nothing to really bitch about.
#34
The only time it really hurts particularly bad is when they graze your hand, so gloves aren't a bad idea. If you're really worried about it though, wear a sweater or something like that to absorb the impact.

There probably will be a point where you aren't afraid of getting tagged anymore and decide to just make a run for it, if you do that, make sure you aren't running headlong into someone, adrenaline took over once when we were in a stalemate and i charged, but it turns out i was running straight towards someone across open ground, long story short i got shot about 30 times everywhere but my nuts, and some of it was probably friendly fire.

i've been hit a few times, including one time right onto my bare hand. it didnt hurt, so im guessing maybe the guy who shot me had his velocity way down.

Pain is an essential part of paintball.

And if you expose your crotch area, you deserve to get shot.

It's not too bad once you're used to it. I used to play tourneyball though, which involves shooting about 15 balls per second, so I had a lot of chances to get used to it...

Just try and avoid getting shot in the throat, because that sucks.

I've been paintballing a few times (haven't for 2 years though) and the most painful hit I ever took was a bullet I took with the back of my hand. I was lifting it up or something and a ball just hit smack right in the centre of the back of my hand. I think it was someone from my own team shooting out from behind me or something that didn't realize I was standing up. It was pretty sore. Every other time I was hit, it hurt a bit, but it wasn't anything that would send you out on a stretcher.
