Yes, paintball masks are also a countermeasure to protect your eyes from getting into contact with the paint just in case you or a fellow player accidentally fires towards your face.

Yes. Barrel plugs are a must-have in modern paintball guns. Some may argue that modern markers feature very effective safety features such as safety pins to lock the trigger, and this is very true. However, these features may fail and a barrel plug might just be the last line of defense that you need.

This component is basically a safety device that blocks the end of the gun’s barrel, ensuring that the paintball won’t escape the barrel if you forget to engage the safety features of the marker As such, this is a very essential item of paintball safety gear to have.

Yes. The power of a paintball gun is measured as the velocity of the paintballs exiting the barrel, multiplied by the weight of the BB being fired. All weapons will be chronographed every day.

Even though the game is all about hitting and eliminating your opponent, we recommend that you do it without causing them harm. Generally, firing paintballs at over 300 fps might cause damage, such as puncturing the skin and causing severe welts.

To avoid this, ensure that you and the rest of the players keep the gun’s firing velocity at under 300 FPS. This can be achieved using a paintball chronograph, which basically measures the speed of the ball when it is fired using its sensors, allowing you to adjust accordingly.

Even though reducing the velocity of the marker makes it safer for the players on the receiving end, it is recommended to avoid shooting them if they are within 10 feet from you. This is because such close shots can be painful and most referees will actually rule against you in such a case.

This is where surrenders come in. We recommend letting players surrender if you have a shot on a close opponent. In fact, many paintball fields recommend this in their games.
