Ive been wondering which colors would look and work best for camo. My friend, for whatever reason, used orange and green which he thought would work. If there are any I missed please add.

I don't know how this is an idea, but seeing as you're new, I'll answer you. There isn't really one good combination. It's all relative depending on your surroundings. Solid colors are never really a good idea either, even solid black at night.

When you're choosing camoflage, look at your surroundings first. Look at the terrain, and the season. If you're playing in woods in the spring or summer, you're going to want more green in your camo. If you're playing in the fall, you'll want more browns and grays. If you're playing in scrub, grasslands, or desert, you'll want more tans. Like I said, avoid solid colors if you can.

And about the orange and green scheme, it's not designed to fool the human eye. It's designed to fool the eyes of colorblind animals, such as deer, while still being highly visible to humans(other hunters) to prevent accidents.

Camoflauging your paintball gun is an idea. I was just wondering what colors were popular.

Strips of burlap on your gun can help in many different types of surroundings.

Ever considered lookin at Digital Camo designs...its straight up badass, makes all the other camo designs obsolete and it makes my camo job on my 98c look obsolete as well.

Yes as Homer says it all depends on where you are playing and what the colors of the enviroment are, I used a darker tiger stripe for a long time and it works great, here in Oregon, but i would also recommend the digital camo, we now have the marines digital and the stuff is awsome, it almost looks like a tiger stripe in the distance and like evil_fingers said it makes all others look obsolete. also camo the mask, i just got some O.D. Green Brown and Black and spray-painted mine, but do it so it matches your camo.
