Do paintballs hurt?

Sometimes, it depends on several factors. Most of the time you will feel them when they hit you, but because most of the time players are a distance away, it does not hurt much, and sometimes, depending on what you are wearing, the referee will let you know you were hit because you didn’t feel it at all. The closer they are to you, the more you will feel it, and sometimes they can leave a bruise. Players 10 and up are allowed to play, and they do, so should give you an idea if they can take the hit, then you probably can as well. Most of the time, because your adrenaline is going, along with your heart rate, from paintballs flying all around you, once you do get hit, you feel it, then cannot believe you are now out of that game. Goes that quick through your mind, so don’t worry too much about it and go have FUN!
