Paintball (in Spanish ‘ball of paint’) is a game in which the participants use paintball markers (the term “paintball gun” tends to be avoided so as not to raise concerns), which use compressed air, CO2 or other gases, to shoot small balls filled with paint at other players. Essentially, it is a complex strategy game in which players who, while playing the game, are struck by paintballs are eliminated. This elimination can sometimes be temporary or permanent, depending on which version of the game is being played. Contrary to common misconceptions, it is one of the safest outdoor sports.
Normally, a game of paintball sees two teams play against each other with the aim of eliminating all of the players in the opposite team or until a target is reached (such as capturing a flag or eliminating a specific player). A typical, amateur game of paintball can last anything from five minutes to half an hour. The basic kit needed to play paintball is relatively inexpensive (although the paint markers and top-of-the-range kit can be a little bit on the expensive side). The number of paintballs shot throughout the game varies depending on which version of the game is being played and depending on each specific player: some shoot hundreds, while others just a few or even none throughout an entire game.
