I am not much of a airball person. My field only has airball sunday, and rentals are included.

I can only go saturday also. The one time I did play, it was bad. It wasn't like mikes vids of ranom people shooting lanes, but I was still scared shitless. Afraid to get shot from a foot away and me having a chest protector doesn't help.

We have this big game where all fields are connected. This highly exp player come up, when I got 3 bounces on him with my pump, and from 7 to 9 feet, lights my head up. I was thinking, if everybody does this, I'm done. He could have 1 balled me or asked me to surrendur like the rules said. He kind of traumatized me to never try it again and I want to.

Anybody know to get over this fear?

pretty simple toughen up, get lit up your first time, ya hurts like a bitch, happens again you realize it isn't as bad, pretty soon you'll be the one lighting up the experienced guys and they'll be the one's fearing you.

To sum it up gotta get used to it just go out there and keep playing, i've had times where i got shot in the head repeatedly and my whole body went numb but i recovered and 5 minutes later was back out on the field. Once you block out the mental fear of getting shot alot there's really nothing to it


Monsterballs were created as a self-defense projectile, but were accidentally labelled as paintballs when they came out of production, since this mistake 5 recorded deaths have been related to people getting shot by monsterballs :)

The first time I played, something along those lines happened as well. I almost never played Speedball again.

You realize that everyone is not like that, though. And eventually when it does happen again, it's not as bad at all.

So I would say give it a try again, because not everyone who plays Speedball lights people up,I promise.

We try not to do that here... Because as soon as someone does that, they get marked as a prick, and we love to switch it around on them...

Ok cool, I was just wondering. I don't play a lot and I am able to drive now. Maybe I can ball on Sundays. Is it normal for me to have a year sometimes? I think I have a high pain sensitivity....

Well it'll stop hurting but people shoot so much because theirs so many cheaters in speedball! Eventually you'll stand up from getting shot and a stream of paintballs will catch u then you'll see it on camera and itll look awesome

Sometimes you gotta let the pain just wash over you until your body releases the adrenaline and endorphins to make you feel better. It wasn't until I played paintball for a good year before I was able to get over the pain and enjoy the painkillers your body naturally produces(endorphins).

It hurt more because you weren't expecting it. Think about this: That is probably the worst thing that can happen right? and now it doesn't even seem like that big of a deal. All you gotta do is go out there and don't be afraid to get shot. Just shoot or bunker them before they get you.

I play pump on a regular basis against usually 5 people with semis at my park. I do just as good as the rest of the guys because I just get in there and get them before they get me.

Once you get the fact that "That's the worst that can happen. This isn't even that big of a deal" then your good to go and you can get out there and hold your own against semi players even when your using a pump.

That is very true, plus that was 2 years ago. I haven't played in a year due to family issues, but once i get my permit, or even license in July, im ballin every weekend. I think i need to get used to it.

No one wants to use the surrender rule its the best way to get bonus balled by children... You call for them to surrender you end up shot in several not to plesant places so I just disreguard that rule...

sadly thats how it is apparently. i played with this kid at brew city one time, he felt the need to shoot you at least 12 times before you go out. thats why i barely ever do speedball, but i will do hyper ball, because the people that play hyperball at my field are probably the same guys that invented it, lol.

Getting lit up really isn't that big of a deal. Once you get used to having it happen you'll be fine.

Just expect to get lit up one game a day. It hurts for a little but then the pain goes away and you have fun playing the next game.

Well if you didn't have a pump and had a semi auto marker, than what you should have done was a trade off. A trade off is when you are shot and it is against the rules, so you both keep shooting at each other till you can't a) take it anymore. B) he/she can't take it anymore. Might sound incredibly RETARDED but because of it, i run the fuck up in anyball (speedball, xball, woodsball, recball) and eliminate players without the fear of getting hit by a ball of paint. You can do it with a pump, but it would be hella harder. Also dont be afraid to keep shooting, remember that in their minds, if they don't put they're hands up they are not out. Good luck, Maybe I'll see you at Canadian Carnage..... :)

once you get used to play airball and get hit tons of times, its become normal,
trust me, i can barelly feel the hit when i get shot like 4-5-6 times, just try to relax and play, one day you will lose your fear of getting shot and will enjoy the game much much more
