Basic Rules of Paintball Wars | Paintball


My name is Mike Peverill. I’m here at Pev’s Paintball Park in Aldie,
Virginia. I’ve been playing paintball nearly 30 years. I’ve played professional paintball with numerous
pro teams all over the world. This facility here was built from the ground
up for paintball, kind of like a paintball Disney Land. Our website is www.pevs.com. Hopefully you can come out and visit us sometime. Paintball. It’s all the same. You’re still shooting a paintball gun, so
it doesn’t matter whether you’re playing a tournament, a speedball style or whether you’re
playing rec ball style. Paintball wars are all going to be the same
concept, which is you’re shooting a paintball gun, and you’re shooting a paintball at someone
else. So what I tell everybody what’s very to remember
the rules are, it’s safety. The No. 1 safety thing you’ve got to remember
is to keep your goggles on at all times when you’re on the playing field. Barrel covers. Remember your barrel covers. When you’re eliminated or the game is over
and you’re walking off the field, lock your gun and then also put the barrel cover on
the gun. The other thing to remember is cronographing
the gun. The velocity of the guns, we have to cronograph
for safety. And it means, three hundred feet per second
is the max in our industry that safety will allow us to shoot a paintball gun. So, cronograph your guns. When you’re at a field or even if you don’t
play at a field, if you’re playing in your backyard, randomly cronograph your gun. Because it’s very important. If you don’t have a cronograph, go to your
local paintball pro shop or field and say, “”Hey, would you cronograph my gun for me? I’d like to set it for 280, 290, but never
more than 300 feet per second.”” It’s critical. Basically, the rules are it’s when you shoot
someone, they’re out. They’re eliminated. In most paintball games, it doesn’t matter
where you get hit. If you get hit on the body, or even if you
get hit on the gun, on the equipment, you’re considered eliminated. And you’re eliminated for that gun. So, you know, respect the fact that you’re
eliminated and walk off the field, keeping your goggles on, put your barrel blocking
device on. Keep it simple. The no. 1 rule, basic safety rules in paintball worldwide
is goggles, barrel covers and respect your other paintball player. When you’re shot, walk off the field, and
play safe.
