Advanced Paintball Tactics : Paintball Grenades


Hi, this is Robert Stewart with hill13.com.
The next thing we’re going to talk about is some of the fun stuff, special weapons and
tactics. Now primarily paint ball is really about throwing paint from your gun, but there
are other means to, to go after the opposing team. The first and foremost of these is paint
ball paint grenades. Now paint grenades are pretty simple devices, they’re not to be confused
with in any way, with real grenades in terms of their ballistics and they do require a
little bit of special handling and little know how in terms of how they operate. This
particular variety is a rubber bladder that is filled with the paint. I’m going to take
the cover off of it. Now I’ve seen people use these with the covers on, I find that
they, they, they work better and splatter better if the cover’s off. The next thing
you’ll notice is that the rubber has been folded over and secured with a cap and a pin.
The way to deploy this in general is you pull the pin, remove the pin from the cap and when
this cap bounces off, the paint which is under pressure will cause the tube to open up completely
and this will jump around and spread the paint out. Unlike a paint ball hit, where you have
to have a quarter size dollop of paint on you, all you have to do is get a little bit
of this on you and you’re considered out of the game. The one thing to remember when throwing
these is that they’re not a pyrotechnic device they do not throw shrapnel, and in order to
get them to work effectively, it’s really more effective if you can, in the case of
say you’re trying take out a guy in a bunker, to throw it into the bunker in such a way
that it actually has to bounce off something hard. That will help the paint be distributed
through the room a little bit better. Another thing to keep in mind is don’t throw it so
hard that it bounces to the other side of your opponent or the paint will go all over
the place and he won’t get hit by any of it. The other thing that you can use too is smoke
grenades. And I really like those because they’re effective in covering up and concealing
your movement and your opponent can’t see you as well and doesn’t, doesn’t have a clear
sense of where you’re at. But both of these can be used to, for great effect in terms
of having fun on the field.
