Paintball is a sport in which all participants use compressed air guns called “markers” to shoot little balls of paint at other players. In essence, it is a complex game of pursuit, and as the players get hit by balls of paint throughout the game, they are eliminated.
Generally in a game of paintball two teams face each other with the goal of eliminating all the players from the opposite team or by completing an objective (such as capturing a flag or by eliminating a set player). A typical non-professional game of paintball usually lasts between 5 minutes and half an hour. The basic equipment you need to play paintball is not excessively expensive (although the markers and other high-range elements can be). The number of balls shot during a game varies from one game to another: some shoot hundreds, others shoot a few, and some don’t get the chance to shoot at all.
