The Paintball Pros
Here are common types of paintball players you might meet on the field:
The Scientist: This type of player is able to use advanced mathematical algorithms, wind readings, and statistical analyses of player performance to determine the best time to stop playing paintball and start applying to graduate schools to get his teaching license.
The Warrior: Treating every battle as a matter of life and death, the Warrior never quits, never backs down, and never surrenders until he remembers that if he doesn’t pick up diapers before he gets home the baby is going to have to wears newspapers again.
The Hotshot: He knows the field so well, some say he lives on the course. Specifically, the county Sheriff’s Department says he lives on the course, and if you know where he is, please remind him that “eminent domain” does not allow him to live in the course’s castle.

The locations that comprise Paintball Tickets challenge hue-happy gamers to a range of combative revelry fought with air-powered paintbrushes. During games, referees maintain a fun and lighthearted wartime experience while competitors engage in capture-the-flag style strategy. As players navigate the terrain on a quest to invade the other team's territory and avoid epidemics of trenchfoot, they covertly scope opponents and peg them with bright-colored pellets to dull their chance at victory.
