Fun on the Paintball Fields!
The Paintball Tank – a solid piece of machinery for playing paintball games with. But what is it, really? And how does it work? What are the benefits? Let's take a look at all of these questions and break them down one by one.
First of all we need to understand what the tank is and what it is not.
The paintball tank is a vehicle (which can be home-made, scrapped from an existing vehicle, or just about anything) that can or can not move using an engine.
These are not like the military versions, and instead are much smaller. They are, however, equipped with military-style weapons such as cannons (usually) and markers.
All of this will vary depending on the paintball fields they are found at, as well as the different ones that are made.
The tank works by allowing you to protect yourself from enemy players while moving around in a vehicle. There are rules as to what you can and can not do with these, as well as how they are declared as “destroyed” (after all, you wouldn't want to actually destroy them!).
This can vary from field to field and also from game to game. Some players, for example, like to pit tanks up against tanks just for the fun-factor, with no real way to keep score. Others use them for traveling purposes or a variety of other reasons.
The benefits of the paintball tank are that they open a great deal of new adventures for you to unfold.
You could, for example, re-enact an old war (such as World War II), just drive them around because it is fun, use them in the games you play, or even use them as target practice!
The possibilities are truly endless with these, and they are easily enhanced, allowing even more upgrades to be done to them in the future.
As for my personal use, I like to go pit a couple of paintball teams up against one another. The rules are that the tanks are destroyed by a paintball bazooka only (think of this as being like the real tanks – it takes rockets or mines to blow them up, however since we are not really destroying anything it is hard to keep track of the mines) and they can only move at a slow speed.
This ensures that all of the players are safe. The tank can be used in many different games we play such as Capture the Flag (in which the person with the flag can not harbor themselves inside a tank) and domination (in which the tank is fair game, but they are also easy targets for enemies).
As you can see, I really do enjoy my paintball vehicles, and I think you will too!
