It’s very common for players to feel a slight sting, similar to a firm flick on the arm. The pain is minor and typically fades quickly.

Can you wear leggings to paintball?

Wear Layers or Padding Wearing layers or padding can help cushion the impact of a paintball hitting you. If it is not too hot, you can wear layers of clothing to give yourself some padding. Layers are good because if you end up getting too hot, you can always take a layer off.
Can a 13 year old play paintball?
While it completely depends on the individual child, it is generally recommended that ages 12-to 14-years- old is the proper age to begin the sport of paintball.

What hurts more a BB gun or a paintball gun?
After talking to many different airsoft and paintball players, I assessed which sport had more pain associated with getting shot. What I found: paintballs hurt more than airsoft BBs. Actually a LOT more. Both airsoft and paintball guns shoot around 300-400 fps.

How many layers should you wear for paintball?
Just 1 layer for me unless it’s really cold outside, then I dress appropriately for the weather and for the level of activity, which is generally high exertion in paintball. For warm weather I normally wear a t-shirt and shorts, or very well breathing long sleeve jersey and pants.
