Paintball is a pronounced team sport where cooperation, communication and tactics are more important than individual skill in the long run.
When playing, a marker is used, which is a kind of gun that with the aid of carbonic acid or compressed air fire color-filled balls. To play, all participants must wear protective gear consisting of at least a full-face mask. A paintball marker does not require a license to own, and there are many well-formed safety regulations for the game sessions. Statistically, there are more injuries per person in golfing than in paintball.
In general, the teams have to get from their starting position to the opponents’ in order to grab a flag, which then has to be transported back to the starting point. The players fire color-filled balls at the other team to try and mark them. A marked player must leave the playing course and wait for the next game.
There are also large tournaments and contests within the paintball hobby, and many teams practise a lot to increase the performance and qualify for the prestige-filled games.
