How Long is a Day of Paintball?

On normal days, paintball starts between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm, but most people arrive at their leisure and leave early. Don’t worry if you start fresh and reach the field on time and get less people, it’s natural, people start coming slowly, so keep in mind that the prime time of playing paintball is between 10:30 AM to 3:30 PM which I observed with time

If you are a part of any paintball tournament you should arrive on time, people arrive on time and spend more time on the field, but if you are with beginners there is a possibility that they will arrive late and Go early because they are unaware of time importance in the game. 

However, if you have your own team, you can play paintball for as long as you and your team members want to play. It is a good practice to join paintball teams so that you can confirm which time/day/date to play by contacting them.

Paintball Games

There are different types of paintball like woodsball, speedball, rec ball, magfed, stock class, scenario paintball and then there are different types of paintball games in different game situations. Below are the most popular paintball games.

Team Deathmatch (Elimination) – 10 minutes

This is the most popular game type in paintball, because the sole objective of elimination is for all players to shoot at each other until everyone is eliminated. Any remaining player is the winning team.

Capture the Flag – 10 minutes

There are two different ways to capture the flag in paintball. You can place a flag in the middle and the two teams fight to capture that flag, or you can place a flag at each team’s base and have your team own both flags at your base to win. 

Attack and Defend – 15 minutes

The way Attack and Defend is played is that one team defends its base and the other team attacks it. The team whose players remain, wins.

Plant the Bomb – 20 minutes

Planting a bomb is similar to capturing the flag, but instead of capturing the flag and bringing it to your base, you have to capture a bomb and bring it to the enemy’s base. There are three different ways to play Plant the Bomb:

1-The first is to have one team bomb the other team while -defending their base.

2-Another way to play PTB is to have both teams deal with bombs and try to plant their own bombs on the enemy team’s base.

3-The third and final way to play PTB is to plant a bomb in the middle of the field and have each team try to grab it and plant it in the enemy base.

Zombies – 20 minutes

To play zombies, you assign one player the role of a zombie and then tell all the other players to hide somewhere on the field. Once all the non-zombie players have had a chance to find a place and hide, the zombies come out and kill the players one by one.

After a non-zombie player is killed by a zombie, they must go to the main base and start over as a zombie. When a zombie is eliminated, all you have to do is return to base and start over as a zombie.
