I’ve been doing a bit of research about the equipment necessary for paintball play. I would like to know the different styles of play and what would be the best equipment for each. For example, I’ve noticed that during tournament play the players have a specific type of gun, not the ones that look like actual army guns, etc.
1. I’ve seen words like wood ball, speed ball/hyper-ball,scenario, indoor, etc… can you give me an example of the type of gun/ equipment necessary for each? Also being that I’m a “noob,” I don’t want to go out to a local themed game called World war z game and have a gun that is out of place. I was looking into purchasing the Alpha black tactical but after watching many youtube videos I’m noticing that no one really has guns like this. Can You give me your opinion on what I should do?
2. I need a bit of direction on the course I should take. I’m extremely inexperienced and want to get the most I can from the sport. For now I just want to have tons of fun, not really looking into the tournament play just yet. With that said, what style game-play (wood ball, speed ball/hyper-ball,scenario, indoor,) would you suggest I could look into, and what equipment would be a good starting point? Can you explain each style of game-play?
