Don’t get us wrong… paintball has always been a popular sports option!

 

The idea of red welts and bruises, however, wasn’t so appealing. In recent years paintball developers have constructed a low impact paintball experience that would appeal to a wider variety of people.

 

The major turning point for paintball was due to the introduction of the 50-caliber paintball gun. Because of the paintball’s smaller size, the chance of stings and bruises was much smaller. The gun was just the start of creating this low impact experience, though.

 

Here are a few other contributing factors:

 

  • Speed
  • Distance
  • Clothing
  • Paintball
  • Temperature

Think of your paintball party reservation like a dinner reservation. If you booked a party at 1pm, please arrive at 1pm. You won’t be eating at that time, but your table(s) will be ready! You may arrive early to set up!

When you book a party online at Crossfire a table(s) is automatically reserved for you! Feel free to bring any food or non alcoholic beverages with you! Decorations are also welcome. Your table is reserved for you the entire time that you’re here!

Safety Briefing

Once everyone is here and checked in, everyone will receive a rundown of their equipment and the game rules.The briefing will include a short 5 minute video showing all the game rules, instruction on adjusting gear, loading and unloading your paintball marker, and more! All play is fully supervised by a Crossfire Paintball crew member!

After the safety briefing, our friendly crew will pass out equipment to your party. Equipment includes: marker, hopper, tank, protective mask, and 100 paintballs. The paintballs will be preloaded in each paintball hopper. Players can upgrade to a Protection Package (gloves and a chest protector) for $4.99.

Rotating The Field

Your group will rotate the field with other groups during your time here at Crossfire. This ensures your group won’t play with another group with a completely different play style. We do group players together based on skill and age. You may select a private field during booking! This ensures no one else will be on the field with your group!

Start Playing

Players will play 2 games, each approximately 3-5 minutes, and then rotate the field with other groups. During this time players will be reloading their guns, cleaning off their masks, and getting ready to get back on the field and play again! Most groups play for about an hour to an hour and a half. There is no time limit on how long you can play. You’re only limited by how many paintballs you have!

  1. How fast will the paintball be flying towards me?
      Since we use a lower weight, 50-cal paintball, they aren’t producing as much energy when leaving the gun. Combined with the fact that we position our guns at lower speeds than a standard 68-cal, there’s less of a chance of being stung by a paintball hit.
  2. How does your distance from the shooter affect your experience?
      1. At Crossfire Paintball, players are not allowed to cross over to the other side of the field. This means there’s no chance of getting shot from a dangerously close range. If you’re brand new to the game, and really nervous about being hit, you can always stick towards the back of the course. From there, no one will be able to get any closer to you than 50 feet. When the paintball has further to fly, it begins to lose energy in the air, so that when it hits you the sting is much less intense and helps contribute to the idea of

    low impact paintball

      .
  3. How does clothing play a role?
      Since our facility is 100% air-conditioned, there’s no need to worry about getting too hot. With that in mind, don’t be afraid to bundle up in comfortable clothing. When you have on a couple of layers, you’ll probably barely feel the paintballs when you get hit.
  4. What type of paintball were you shot by?
      There’s a big reason we don’t allow any outside paintballs. At Crossfire Paintball, we only use special Field Paint Only ammo. These paintballs are built to break open easily. Thanks to these non-stain paintball options, we can safely say that we offer our customers a low impact field.
  5. What temperature are the paintballs kept at?
      When paintballs get either too hot, or too cold, they have a tendency to seize up, making it harder for them to break open. Not only do our low impact paintballs get delivered on a climate-controlled truck, we keep them completely sealed in our own climate-controlled facility until they’re ready to be used. This idea further contributes to the low impact paintball experience we’ve been discussing.
