Defcon Paintball fulfills fantasies of neon-coloured warfare with indoor and outdoor arenas spanning 120,000 square feet of pigmented play. Marksmen and markswomen suit up with a gun, mask, 100 paintballs, and coveralls woven from courage before scattering throughout the indoor field to find cover behind sandbags or create creative ambush points within large corrugated tubes. The outdoor field evokes an urban scenario, letting paint-packing assassins lurk in the shadows cast by looming concrete structures soon to be transformed into contemporary art. Prolific paint slingers or those inspired to finger paint on the battlefield can also pick up additional rounds ($14.99+ for 100 rounds).
The rugged indoor playing field at Defcon Paintball’s Toronto and Mississauga locations span more than 40,000 square feet and beckon sharpshooters to engage in multicoloured campaigns. For each session, players don their gear and load their guns before Defcon staffers helm a comprehensive safety course that outlines essentials such as equipment usage, the rules of the game, and how to ornament opponents’ backs with dramatic chiaroscuro. Participants bob and weave through a dirt-floored indoor course littered with concrete cylinders, ducking behind piles of sandbags as they fire 100 polychromatic slugs at their rivals.
