Does Paintball hurt?
Everyone has their own pain threshold and so there’s no certain answer. Most people state that paintball doesn’t hurt too much; it usually feels like a firm flick. But this will depend on how fast the ball is going, the distance it travels and where on the body it hits you.
Bruises from paintball pellets are not uncommon. In fact, they’re a badge of honour among paintball enthusiasts! While getting a bit stung and bruised is all part of the fun, if you do want to avoid some battle injuries, the best way to avoid getting bruised during a game is to wear protective gear, like a paintball vest.
But if you're not keen on buying a vest, the pain from a paintball hit can also be lessened by wearing loose-fitting clothing. Affordable paintball clothing can be baggy jeans, long-sleeved shirts, jackets, or even hoodies. It’s also important to wear clothing that you don’t mind getting ruined, as paintball stains are notoriously difficult to remove!
If this still seems a bit too risky for you, we offer "GELLYBALL and COMBAT ARCHERY" that might be a better fit, as these are less powerful and therefore less painful.
When it comes to footwear, trainers or running shoes are best, as they will protect your feet and ankles from wayward paintballs, and give you good grip and traction when in pursuit of the enemy.
"Paintball injuries won’t be too extensive, but you should expect a few minor bruises and bumps after playing. Welts and sometimes broken skin (Painbtball Marks) may occur if the paintball hits bare skin. This should clear up in a few days. These are what gives paintball that extreme "real" feel, and adrenaline rush." - Referee
What else do you offer?
Well, we offer Gellyball and Combat Achery. Both are considered less painful than paintball.
Gellyball has been described as being shot will nerf darts on bare skin; you may still experience some redness at the areas of impact, but nothing that stops little ones from continuing to play....they love it! The gellyballs are the small gellets commonly referred to as "ORBEEZ", they are around 8mm in diameter
Combat Archery is the least painful of our line-up, as you shoot nerf tipped arrows at your opponents. Players should have prior knowledge of using a Bow and Arrow weapon, or they're gonna be doing a lot of running. Oh, well, they either learn quick or they're gonna be a turkey.
