My Little Brother: The Wiper Please help me dissuade him of his evil ways.

Part of me hopes it's just him being unable to judge what a break looks like when you check it with your hand. I have hopes that using a thicker fill paint than the infinity we normally shoot could help, but when we recently played airball at a local field that uses graffiti he got into an argument with a ref over the same issue.
My brother loves the game, but I don't want him to be "That Wiping Asshole" that everybody seems to know. Please give some ideas on how to deal with this, or at least convince me not to care about it.

Ya, that is what I am thinking.
He seems to be playing more to win. If it is anything except speedball, you should be playing for fun, not for complete victory.
Yes, I work at Wal*Mart, got a problem with that?

Other than that, all you really can to is call him out every time.

If the first break on them isn't enough to get them out, shoot them some more
It's always better to give, than to receive...
Ask Willie, the people who I've caught wiping my hits, get STITCHED up from head to toe, over and over and over again
One poor guy who wiped a couple of my hits one time was in snake corner. He had no clue I had bunkered the last dorito player and I ran up the field. He was looking down the tape, and never saw me run up to his "home" bunker". He was completely and 100% exposed to me, I saw his entire left side of his body. I made sure I had a full hopper, and as I continued to shoot him, I made sure to keep saying "Get out cheater!!! (puff puff puff puff) get out cheater!!!! (puff puff puff puff puff) Cheater get out!!! Get our cheater!!!! (puff puff puff puff)"
He got the point :-)
If he doesn't want to play the part of the game, that says "when you get hit with a paintball, you get out", then you don't have to play the part of the game that says "When you see the ball break on someone, stop shooting"
If he wants to throw the rulebook out of the window, you can easily do the same

If you wipe, you're getting lit the fuck up until you can't stand the pain. I've done it a few times in my career, Dude wipes and gets a full loader into the back while I scream in German.
I'm thinking the screaming in German might work even without shooting a full hopper into the person. Screaming in German can be quite intimidating.
