Freshly splattered paint drips down the mazelike barricades and buildings that speckle Fightertown Paintball Park's two large fields, each of which pose their own scenarios and challenges. Players in full complements of rental or personal gear dive behind abandoned buildings in the urban landscape of Field 1, seeking advantageous flanking positions and picnicking sites by sneaking through the streets. Players deploying onto Field 2 descend into fox holes and trench combat, which teams can navigate by communicating through secret messages composed of paint splatters. The arenas host open-play sessions as well as long scenario events.

The field and on-site pro shop spread across 20 acres of terrain, which is peppered with a few buildings where players can duck into or play Rochambeau for decoy duty.
At the indoor arena, Xtreme Pursuit, players kick up clouds of dirt as they chase each other around a 33,000-square-foot facility and take shelter in bunkers and buildings amid specialized lighting, a sound system, and fog machines.
