DO Pay Attention to Rules and Safety

AC Paintball has rules put in place for your safety. We want all of our players to enjoy their paintball experience and not have to worry about reckless opponents. Therefore, we encourage you to pay close attention to the rules and safety briefing before your game and read the rules page on our website.

DON’T Assume You Know The Rules and How To Be Safe

If you have played before and heard our speech, you may be tempted to not pay attention or continue to talk to your friend. However, if you talk, other people may not be able to hear the rules or you may miss a new rule that has been added or changed. Remember to be respectful when visiting AC Paintball.

Not only does stretching feel good, but it warms up your muscles so you can play well during your AC Paintball game. Check out AC Paintball’s blog for tips on how to warm up properly.

DON’T Forget to Stretch

When you skip your warm up, however, you risk pulling a muscle. You may also lack agility and find it difficult to move. Paintball is a very physical sport and it is important to be able to run, jump, crouch, dive, and perform other movements without any issue.

DO Ask Questions, Make Suggestions, and Talk To Your Team

The better your team communicates and the more everyone is on the same page, the better your chances will be of winning the game. If you don’t know something, ask. Don’t be afraid to look stupid. It’s better to correct the misunderstanding before your AC Paintball game that it would be to make mistakes during the game. Feel free to make suggestions as well!

DON’T Exclude Yourself From Your Team

If you disagree with your team, it may be tempting to rebel and use go off and do your own thing. This will most likely just lead to a game that is not as fun for both you and your team. Be friendly, join in the fun, and ask others to join in the fun as well.

DO Take Your Time To Aim

AC Paintball games can get pretty intense at times. You may think you need to shoot as fast as you can to ensure you hit your opponent before they hit you. While it is true that you need to work fast, taking the time to aim is important.

DON’T Shoot Without Aiming

If you don’t aim, you will likely miss and your opponent will hit you anyway. When you don’t aim, you also risk injuring someone by accident.

The main object of paintball is to eliminate opponents by hitting them with paintballs. Your opponents will try to hit you at the same time you try to hit them. One of the best ways to be defensive is to keep moving. It is harder to hit a moving target than it is to hit someone who is standing still.

DON’T Stay In The Same Place

With this in mind, you will want to avoid staying in the same place for too long. If you hide behind the same bunker for more than a minute or two, your opponents may surround you until you are cornered. Then there will be little chance of you getting away without being eliminated.

DO Support Your Teammates

People more driven to play and often perform better when they feel appreciated. Complimenting or congratulating your teammates on a job well done is a great way to show your team you are glad to be playing with them. Also, be sure to provide backup for them when they are trying to accomplish an important role during the AC Paintball game.

DON’T Be Mean To Your Opponents

Just because you are trying to win the game, doesn’t mean you should be rude to your opponents. A little teasing and friendly competition is fine if both parties are having fun contributing to banter, but be careful not to take it too far. You want to keep your AC Paintball game fun for everyone.
