Paintball is a lot like Halloween: both involve getting dressed up, going out with friends, and playfully shooting at people in masks. Replace sugar highs with an adrenaline kick with today's deal: for $20, you get a two-person, three-hour paintball package at Defcon Paintball (up to an $89.96 value). Defcon's outdoor field is on Carl Hall Road in Downsview, while their indoor splatter space is on Victoria Park Avenue.
Defcon Paintball hosts fast-paced fun with its twin-barreled pigment-pumping emporiums. Head to their outdoor field, built to resemble post-industrial badlands, for an afternoon of ambushing foes among gravel dunes and concrete culverts. With black netting overhead, cement barrels, and head-high piles of sandbags, the indoor arena approximates the eerie intensity of a cheerleader practice held in a graveyard. Both settings offer myriad opportunities for advanced strategizing, and plenty of nooks for snipers to camp out, even if they're allergic to s'mores. Today's deal covers two people for three hours and includes coveralls, masks, markers, and 100 paintballs each. Ardent assassins can reload with an additional 100 paintballs (for an additional $14.99), while the truly trigger-happy can slake their hunting hunger with a batch of 500 (for an additional $59.99). Download and fill out the waiver to arrive locked and loaded.
Though admission and additional paintballs are half-price on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.

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.
