Honestly, the first couple of times that you get hit with a paintball, it stings a little. It depends on how hard the opponent's gun is shooting (any decent field checks every gun to ensure that no gun is shooting faster than the safe limit), and where the paintball hits you.

Snipers don't really exist in paintball. There really isn't a way to be able to get far enough away to shoot your opponent that he won't be able to shoot you back. You will be better off to learn how to effectively use your surroundings as cover, and make yourself as small as possible behind the cover, while still being able to shoot, and move to another location quickly.

its like getting slapped...a small sting but it goes away...but once u really get into the sport ur so full of adrenaline that u might not even notice...if u get into it like me u might need a ref to point out that there is a big pink mark on ur ankle

Yeah, the first shot is always the worst. It's only because you don't know what to expect. Honestly, it's not bad. I remember when I first got shot, I laughed at myself afterwords. All that worrying for nothing. The only time it will hurt is if the other person's marker is shooting hot or if you get shot at point blank range. Other than that, don't get shot in any sensative spots and you should be fine.

Every new player thinks they can snipe. Sooner or later they figure out it doesnt work that way.

yeah

98% of ion owners think ions are better than any high end gun. If you would like to bonus ball these idiots put this in your sig.

Uber is german for super, or good.

Scenerio games are large games in which you are re-creating something. like D-Day. www.oklahomadday.com is an example of a scenerio game.

im not trying to scare you but to get u to go out and try it....good luck

It stings a bit, but when you start playing it is a real incentive to learn how to move and shoot.  After a bit you don't notice anymore.  I have to admit, I still hate getting one between my thumb and index finger, always happens at close range too, lol.

Make sure you wear a ballcap or something over your head, once you get hit on your cranium you are gonna feel it.    Sometimes you won't feel the body shots because your adrenaline is gonna be pumping.  Just be safe, keep your mask on when on the field, and always have a condom or a plug for your barrel when you leave the field.
