Paintballs are composed of a non-toxic, biodegradable, water soluble polymer.
The game is regularly played at a sporting level with organized competition involving major tournaments, professional teams, and players.
Paintball technology is also used by military forces, law enforcement, para-military and security organizations to supplement military training, as well as playing a role in riot response, and non-lethal suppression of dangerous suspects.
Games can be played on very hard floors in indoor fields, or outdoor fields of varying sizes.
A game field is scattered with natural or artificial terrain, which players use for tactical cover.
Game types in paintball vary, but can include capture the flag, elimination, ammunition limits, defending or attacking a particular point or area, or capturing objects of interest hidden in the playing area.
Originally derived from motocross and BMX attire, paintball tournament players commonly wear special outer clothing with integrated padding that allows the player a free range of motion, and helps protect the player both from paintball hits and from incidental contact with rocks and hard ground.
Depending on the variant played, games can last from seconds to hours, or even days in scenario play.
In most areas where regulated play is offered, players are required to wear protective masks, and game rules are strictly enforced.
The most basic game rule is that players must attempt to accomplish a goal without being shot and marked with a paintball.
