yesterday me and my friends went to our local field CPX sports in Joliet IL, while in a game a kid that was with us bunkered and bonus balled a little kid so bad that he started balling his eyes out. my other friend proceeded to take the kid and walk him off the field because he was taking pictures. then later on after that game, the kid was bragging about bunkering the little kid. and i overheard the little kid say mom i never want to do this again.

I was so angry at that kid its not even funny. now that little kids going to go tell people about how terrible paintballing is and how mean they were. it was a total loss for the paintball community, and it makes me so mad that people will just do that to a little kid and think nothing of it, the brag about it.



I would have knocked the fucker out.

I hate those sorts of people, why did that kid even come if he was just going to go ahead and give the sport a bad name? A bit of a self contradiction if you ask me. I hate it when there are assholes, but it's far worse when it's an asshole who doesn't think through what they're doing!
Ah well, make up for one loss by gaining two. We really should be advertising paintball as a genuine sport rather than an activity and enforcing things like this much stronger, like suspending players like that mean kid from the field or even permenent bans from fields for serious stuff. Maybe it's a little harsh, but seriously!
I hope the poor kid is okay and rethinks coming back, maybe if he'd brought friends it could've gone better.

i never bunker someone unless i know them personally . if i cant confirm who it is then i dont even think about it .

i agree this sort of action should be grounds for being banned. young kids are the only future for this sport . im out there every weekend playing taking someone new with me , introducing them to the sport . now im not doing this so some shithead can just destroy all my hard work. we all need to pull together and really let crackdown on these types of people . and dont say if they cant take the pain then they shouldnt be playing.

That is just a STUPID statement. there is no reason why we players cant take it easy on new players. paintball is supposed to be a fun game . lets try to make it fun for everyone.

Ive been bonus balled quite a bit at my field, mostly accidents, but almost everyone at my field is pretty good about not bonus balling people.

though there have been instances where people have gone and got shot and then run up to the player that shot them and open fired on them even though they were out.

mostly it was the new players doing that, but i honestly though it was dumb when the new guy got shot and then he instantly got up and rushed towards the other guy while he was getting shot at

happens every weekend bro

there is more people quitting than coming in, and we're (the current players) are 100% to blame for it

We don't protect them, nor do we retaliate against those who do stuff like this.


Unfortunately this is true, its a well known fact that paintballers are dicks. Now this may seem harsh, but that kid isn't but a blip on the radar of paintball. Now, don't go off saying "Oh well your a dick", but it happens every weekend, I see kids get shot up, they get pissed they cry. If they can't take it they can't be playing. I saw this little kid who was aggressive as fuck, making it to their 30 off the break. It was one and one and they were searching for each other and the little kid found the other old dued and yelled surrender and the old guy turns and shoots the kid point blank in the stomach. You know what the kid did? He fell to the ground, almost crying. Seconds later the kid gets up and says "Nice shot". Now THAT'S a kid that can play, if your kid/friends kid isn't mature enough to do that then he can't play.


No, kids shouldn't have to be the toughest shit on earth to play the sport of paintball. There is no reason for bonus balling someone else they are clearly cheating, or bonus balled someone else. If a young buck gets lit up and starts cry, it's not unexpected, and doesn't mean he isn't fit to play paintball. If you think something is going to hurt, it's going to hurt x10 more than it really does. If a young buck gets hit ONCE, he might say yea that hurt but it wasn't as bad as I expected. If a little kid gets hit 10 times, and feels pain everywhere, x100 more pain than a normal shot, yea he's going to cry and never want to play again. And if you're a true player, you should NEVER think of bonus balling a little kid. The second they fell anything hit them, they're going to call themselves out. Bounce or break, they'll call themselves out just from being jittery and a little scared. There's no need for that.

The guy is a dick. He should of just told the kid how surrendering works, instead he shot him. Dick move.

But to the OP, yeah, kids - american kids especially - can be litte shits. He should ofd been reprimanded by a ref.

Last weekend at my local field a rental shot a girl 9 times... She started crying and threw the marker. I ran over to see what was happening (I was reffing) He said she should of stuck her gun up. The owner of the field talked to the guy who did it. He isn't loud to come back bc it was intinal, and the girl was aloud to come back for free and play of she wanted to. I can't believe how some people are

God I hate to see shit like this ANYWHERE. It ruins the good name of paintballing.

At my local field I always try and get the rentals in on the action, just by asking where they want to go and what they want to do. A lot of em like to sit in the back just chilling and defending, which is cool, but a few of em like to move up on the field. It's a more positive experience when you offer to provide "covering fire" as they move up, and vice versa.

However the refs at my local field do implement a "10 foot surrender" ring, where if someone runs up on you, and you dont see them, you are automatically dead, and anyone who violates that rule and shoots/bonus balls someone, has to sit the next game out. Simple consequence.

This is paintball. You get shot in paintball.

Just because you're renting a gun and its your first time doesn't negate that fact in any way.

Coming onto a paintball field and not expecting to get shot is like taking a job in a kitchen, and then getting squeamish when you find out you have to touch raw food.

Yes, it sucks when you're new and get shot up by a more experienced player. However, this is what separates the people who will eventually fall in love with the sport from the people who are one-time renters. Kids who get shot up and can suck it up and keep playing are the kids who will keep coming back. The others? They'll be gone after their first time anyway.

Stop babying the renters. Show them what the game is really like, and let them make their own decision. I guarantee you that more of them will keep coming back than you think. I got shot up and bunkered my first time renting, but i still came back and now I own all my own gear and play every week,

This whole attitude of "OH NOE, THE POOR CHILDREN!!!1!" is part of a larger problem with North America. Kids are babied and pampered and sheltered from any sort of pain or hardship or disappointment until they think they're little princes and princesses, and it needs to stop. Kids need to fail and get their asses kicked in order to learn life lessons that will help them later in life. I blame the parents.

If a parent wants their kid to learn how to ski, they'll put them in ski school on the bunny hill, not toss them down a double black diamond slope. If someone wants to learn karate, they'll get into a class with other white belts, not a class with black belts. Unfortunately, there really isn't any "paintball school" or boot camp.

One thing I've always liked about the paintball community in general is the fact that so many of the experienced and competent players take on a mentoring role, at least that's what it's like where I've played. I also strongly believe that it's that attitude that really helps promote and grow the sport (speedball, woodsball, whatever). In paintball, you are going to get hit, and it's probably going to hurt a little. You can't get away from that, just like you can't avoid getting punched in boxing. But, treating beginners and walk-ons the same way you would treat regulars at your field, lighting them up because you can and thinking you're showing them what "real" paintball is like is kind of selfish. I'm not saying don't shoot them, nor do I think they should get a free pass if they cheat or break the rules (even out of ignorance). I've lit renters up after getting bonus balled, but I always make sure everyone knows; you get 1 free one, because I'll assume you didn't know. I'll educate you, and then let you operate on your own recognizance. Do it again, and I'll assume it's intentional and act accordingly.

Kids are coddled more today than when I was a kid (when dinosaurs walked the Earth). Teaching someone isn't coddling, and trust me, you don't look like a superstar by beating up on someone less knowledgeable or skilled than you.

We had a little kid run up the the 50 center off break.... I just one balled him. No need to bunker back center out. Rentals usually jump out of their bunkers James Bond style. Just snap out and send a ball over there.
