Helpful Tips

What Are Paintballs

These are similar to those vitamin capsules, with a coloured liquid inside . The paint inside the ball, is  a non-toxic, non-caustic, water-soluable and biodegradable. It rinses out of clothing and off the skin with mild soap and water. They  come in a rainbow of bright colours, and splash all over you or your clothing when they split!


What Are Markers

Paintball Markers are also called Paintball guns – and they come in a variety of shapes and styles (visit our store for more options). Some are powered by carbon dioxide (CO2), others by nitrogen (N2) or compressed air.  Most of them have power systems that use large refillable cylinders called tanks/ bottles. They range from simple to sophisticated, but what they all share in common is a limitation on their power (speed) and range. A chronograph is used to test for speed limits, and all Paintball guns can be adjusted to shoot at the desired speed limit.

 

What Should I Wear?

Wear good shoes. High top shoes or boots that provide ankle protection are also good.
Layering is the key to protection and comfort. Several light layers are preferable. It provides better absorption of the impact of the paintballs and allows you to be  enjoy  a comfort level to the temperature and activity.
Wear loose layers of fabric that "breathes". Try and cover every part of your body. Being hit on bare skin hurts, although it does not do permanent damage (a bruise or a welt, depending on the range and your skin type). Camouflage is important! For maximum comfort and invisibility the camouflage outfits that are part of the rental at BZRK provide the most effective outer layer. You will be running up and down hills, diving into brush, crawling on your belly like a lizard, jumping into gullies, rolling down hills and falling to your knees and stomach many times during the day.


What If It Rains?

We don't charge extra for the mud. Avid paintball players love to play rain or shine. The weather is cooler to play in and definitely more wild and challenging.

 

What Will It Cost?

Cost varies depending on if you use our rental equipment or have your own, the number of players in your group and how many paintballs each person uses. Prices, gift certificates and other information are found on our website.
