I've always had trouble with understanding paintball phrases. So can you tell me some phrases and words refering to certain things in a paintball game? Also, can you tell me whats with all the numbers they're using like 50, 30, 40, etc?

The numbers refer to where it is on the field (such as a football field)

Okay well i have another question, doesn't the doritos, snakes, and doll houses or whatever represent some of the numbers. Like say for instance the first dorito you come across, will that represent 20 and then the next object will be 30. And if thats the case what are the numbers for the objects on the paintball field (doritos,doll houses,snakes)

Sometimes a bunker will be refered to by both it's name and the field position number. So "40 dorito" would normally refer to the dorito just past the centreline - you'd say "our 40 dorito" to refer to the one closer to our end. "He's in the 50" will normally mean that the other guy is in the big bunker in the middle of the field. In any case, there are no set rules. Some teams will refer to bunkers by their colour. I once played an event with red and gray bunkers. We organised what numbers we'd call them beforehand and then referred to the bunker that way (gray one, red three...) for the rest of the event.
