I am not a paintball player but I was able
to borrow this paintball gun from my friend at work named Tony.
We have been trying to make some slow motion videos using this paintball gun before we
have to return it. The paintballs are interesting to see in slow
motion because they are large and do not fly very fast, around 300 feet per second from
have been told. Aderonn suggested that we freeze paintball
to see how they fly through the air and if they are more destructive than room temperature
paintballs. The paintballs when frozen, have large dimples
in them that will likely have a negative effect on their accuracy.
Using frozen paintballs, if it is even practical, it sort of like bringing brass knuckles to a soccer game. You have the intent to hurt
people. You should expect a law suit, being arrested, or getting beat up. Paintball is
a sport, and one should play by the rules and respect other players.
In the last segment, we shoot unfrozen paintballs. I am not an expert paintball user, but you
can see my shots are more accurate. If you are a paintball player, what are the biggest
concerns in regards to cheating and other issues that affect the game?
