Paintball Game Types

Elimination or Slayer - Teams or individual player must simply eliminate all of their opponents.Most games with a primary goal, such as capture the flag, use this as a secondary winning condition.

Capture the Flag - When paintball was first started in 1981, the very first game played was a round of capture the flag with twelve people divided into two teams.Each team must take the flag from the opponents' flag station and return it to their own station to win. Alternatively, in a variation called centerflag, a single flag may be placed in the center of the field for both teams to compete over.

Attack/Defend" - One team is given an advantageous defensive position, such as a cluster of bunkers, advantageous terrain such as a hilltop, or a pre-built fortification, within which they must defend some critical goal point. The other team is given unlimited reinforcements, and must reach the goal point in as short a time as possible. Teams then switch sides and the now-attacking team must beat the previous team's time to reach the goal. Related attack-and-defend games can be played with uneven teams as military scenarios.

Scenarios - Players split into teams according to the specific scenario, usually modeled on some real-world police, military or security situation. A common scenario game is "VIP"; one player of one team represents the VIP, and the goal of the rest of that player's team is to get the VIP across the field without being eliminated, while the goal of the entire opposing team is to eliminate the VIP. The team protecting the VIP may have some advantage such as "body armor" (multiple hits may be required, or members of that team may simply not be able to be eliminated, allowing a player to use themselves to "shield" the VIP). Other scenarios generally fall into the "attack & defend" category, where even or uneven teams compete to invade and oppositely defend a specific fortification on a field.

Shooting Range - Players can show us their shooting skills by trying out bunkers n bonkers challenges.if you do not have a team you can still try our shooting range.

Safety Rules for Paintball

All players and spectators MUST follow all safety and game rules without exception. Any violation of the rules will result in that player or spectator being ejected for the field of play and/or premises. Bunkers n Bonkers offers no refund for those ejected for failure to follow the rules, so be forewarned.

Bunkers n Bonkers reserves the right to refuse admission to any person deemed to be a risk to others or themselves or for any other reason as determined by the staff or owners.

Prior to the start of play, all players are briefed by one of our highly trained paintball referees. All rules will be thoroughly explained and any questions answered. Each player renting equipment will be shown how to properly and safely operate that equipment.

An outline of the rules is listed below:

Approved Full Face Mask/Goggle Systems must be worn at all times past the neutral area or when testing your marker at the target range. Players may not remove their goggles at any time unless instructed by a referee. Any violation is grounds for immediate ejection from the premises. Players ejected for violating the goggle rule are not eligible for refunds or readmission.

No physical contact with any other player or referee. Fighting with other players or staff will not be tolerated.

No alcohol or illegal drugs are allowed on the premises during play.

No verbal abuse of other players or staff is allowed.

Do not attempt to remove the power sources or any parts from the rental guns. If your gun malfunctions, please notify a referee immediately and they will ensure you get a new one.

Judges decisions are final. Any argument with a judge will result in a player being ejected from the playing field.

Spectators must wear a paintball goggle and face mask unless they are behind a safety netting that has passed safety tests. The spectators must be 2 feet back from the netting and not be leaning against it.

Eliminated players must raise their hands above their head, place their barrel blocking device on thier guns, and immediately exit the playing field. Players may also yell out "I'm Hit" or "I'm Out" so that others are aware of their elimination and will not consider them a live target.

No player may fire upon a player once they have been eliminated and have expressed the elimination by placing their hands above their head and/or signal "I'm Hit" or "I'm Out".

Any player who continues to play on with an obvious hit (ie: cheats) will be removed from the game and forced to sit out the following game.

Players may request "paintchecks" on other players or themselves if they believe they are hit. Referees will make the call as to whether the player is eliminated or not.

Players may not fire point blank at another player. At close range, the opposing player should be given the option to surrender.

What To Wear While Playing Paintball

You will be running, jumping, and crawling in an outdoor wooded area. Therefore it is recommended that you wear loose, comfortable clothing that you do not care if it gets dirty or torn.T-shirts, sweatshirts, and sweatpants are excellent choices. Dark colors are preferable as you will be trying to conceal your location in your quest to eliminate your opponents. Comfortable footwear, such as hiking boots, sneakers, combat boots are are must for playing in the field. It is also a good idea to bring a pair of gloves to protect your hands. A bandana draped around the neck or neck protector should also be considered.

A paintball approved and certified goggle system is also required to be worn at all times while on the paintball playing fields. If you are renting equipment from us, then a goggle system is already included in your rental package.
