The Serious Side of Paintball
Much like the sport of airsoft, paintball is truly a thinking man’s game when played at its highest levels. Teamwork is crucial, but good leadership is a rare virtue that can make all the difference in a game’s result. Some players enjoy setting up complex military simulations and playing them out over a period of paintball sessions. This allows adherents to experience the thrill of battle in a safe environment.
The most dedicated players outfit themselves in tactical paintball gear, which can be thought of as their uniform or military regalia. During a military simulation, teams would be split into a chain of command with the most important officers calling the plays over a Cobra two way radio and sending their front lines out ahead. These are all elements of serious paintball play that might never occur to an outsider or novice.
