yup, had them bounce off the ground and break on people (me) too.
The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

the worst are when you are playing with your legs spread, and they bounce off the ground, and get you right under the padding in the sack.

It's highly unlikely the ball was resilient enough to bounce off a tree and then break on him after it had already lost velocity from the initial redirection.

It happens. I have seen it happen on Metal Barrels (like the oil drum barrels) and even concrete walls. In fact last monday I was playing recball at the club i am a member of and I had a ball hitting me in the middle of my mask, while it bounced of a metal barrel.

I get bounces all the time. Probably because I'm a fatass! But tbh I have gotten quite a few bounces off of my masks before

The netting on a speed ball field was pulled tight by the wind once. Guy shot into the netting from across the field and bounced one into me while I was behind a bunker like he was playing pool. I was playing back corner and wondered how in the hell I got hit in the back of the head.

Some assholes always nick me by bouncing balls from the X/center 50 to hit me on dorito 2. I never see them coming.
Also, ive been hit on the tank and it bounces up on my neck.

Yeah Ive had shots bounce off turf and hit me in the leg or foot. Also people like to shoot whole streams under the center 50 and bounce them at the dorito side and corner. Its actually really annoying.

The Russians were notorious for doing this.... Back when the PSP had pins near the home bunker, RL would drill meticulously on how to bounce shots off them into the player.
But on topic, yes i have done this off the mesh and off of bunkers

pro teams still practice doing this, and any bounce shots are definitely exploited.

Crack the shell a little bit on the tree then hits a mask causing it to break open tree, the tree or any other object it may hit may weaken the shell of a paintball allowing it to easily break on another surface like a mask

EDIT: You can think of the paintball like a pinata does it break after 1 hit? or does the pinata get weaker and weaker with each hit till it eventually spills everything on the ground

I heard some guys talking about a tourney where people were shooting snake bunkers behind the person in snake to have the balls bounce and break on whoever was in the snake.

Yeah it sucks when you're on the receiving end and end up yelling at your teammates about shooting you only for it to happen ago 5 times till you finally realize its not your teams fault....
