I've heard in a rule of a piantball match, you can't be near a person really close. I am guessing it's because the paintballs will really hurt the shit out of you. XD
Yeah, but that only applys for the games that don't matter at all, such as anything that isn't a tournament. In a real paintball match, I've been shot from about 5 inches when i was in the snake at the 50(OFF THE BREAK!), but lucky for me, i had a paper thin jersey and an undershirt on, so it didn't hurt that bad (paintballs only go 250 fps in tournaments). I personally blame my backman for that. Before the game even started, we all agreed to have one of our 2 backmen cover that snake. Of course, when the guy was running to bunker me, my backman was shooting someone at the 30 on the opposite side of the field!! (What an idiot, right?!) So to make a long story short, i flipped out at my backman and got a few welts on my back... I usually don't get welts at all, but i guess that if anyone gets shot from less than a foot away, you're going to get a nice sized "memory".
