Can you buy paint tank shells?
For paintballers who love getting shot in the mask
In a game where speed, maneuverability, and elusiveness matter. Let's get a tank.
Yeah, it's like paintball pay to win. If that's the case then some guys could just spend an extra hundred bucks and just spray the fuck out of everyone endlessly for twenty minutes.
Maybe if everyone agrees to extra you can get extra
And ONLY the mask.
For those that don’t know, getting masked is the fucking worst. You’re tasting paint all day and you never get your lens clean enough.

How is that any different from normal paintball where you can purchase as many paintballs as you want (or your wallet can handle) and then go onto the battlefield with umpteen refill canisters
It looks like you can't move the tank with one hand. It seems like it would be a lot more fun and hectic if you could move the tank with one hand and shoot with the other.
Or have two people per tank; a driver and a shooter. Now that would be a mad game of paintball.
I haven't played in a while, and I'm a very large man, but I found that unpredictability and courage counted for a ton in paintball. Simply having the guts to make that sprint toward the enemy to dive into cover was often rewarded because so many people are afraid of taking a hit.
Ah...I rEAlly missed that didn't I :)
What about on your bare ball skin?
The unpredictability is key. If you can manage to not get hit, you’ll be opening up so many opportunities by just being ballsy. We were playing a center flag game and the enemy team had advantage of terrain. They got a massive hill to fight from and we had trees and wide open spaces. I told my buddy to drop his marker and sprint like the devil for the flag. Told two other guys to go with him to make sure he makes it back. Everyone else on the team go around the woods and setup for a push once we get the flag. I went and planted myself at the base of the hill with just enough cover to lay down behind and held that spot. Thankfully the game ended after a few minutes cause my boys just overwhelmed their flank. Shit was getting pretty intense as the boys on the hill were starting to get ballsy and come after me.
Nothing is ever good enough for you, is it?
I’d rather take a ball on bare skin than have it burst on my mask/into my mouth.
It's a joke about pay-to-win elements in $60 retail games.
Crossing the paint trenches.
Blast me in the mouthh

You aren't wrong. Also, most paintball warriors aren't great shots, so if they're only going to get off one shot, the odds of them actually hitting you isn't great.
something something sense of pride and accomplishment
Bumper cars with guns! Hell yeah! It’s a good time to be alive!
Holy SHIT this looks fun. 200 paintballs doesn't sound like enough though.
Thank you for your service.

What about having each tread bound to a set of peddles that you press with your feet.
You're at a disadvantage compared to walking people. They're slow as fuck to manouver and can't drive and fire at the same time. You could simply circle it and spray him from a close distance before he is turned around.
Needs a version with driver and gunner.
Ya haha this looks pretty lame. It could be cool if you integrated the tank into a regular game where maybe you have to get it somewhere without letting the driver get hit so you have to strategically protect/attack it
What would you actually use Paintball Tanks for?
