Players get to experience a range of game formats and fields to suit their skill level, often starting with the classic game: Capture the Flag before moving on to more challenging formats and terrain.
Capture the Flag
Objective: Capture your opponents flag.
Scenario: Teams skirmish to capture their opponents flag and return it to their own flag station without being “tagged”. This is the classic game of paintball and can be played on any of our fields. Suitable for both Elimination games (once tagged player is out) or Respawn (player returns to play).
Objective: Take the Flag to your opponents Flag station.
Scenario: Teams skirmish to capture the flag placed in the centre of the field and take it through to their opponents flag station without being “tagged”. This is a fast paced game of paintball and can be played on any of our fields, although it does suit smaller teams better. Suitable for both Elimination games (once tagged player is out) or Respawn (player returns to play).
Four Squad Challenge
Objective: Capture as many flags as possible and return to your flag station.
Scenario: Teams are split into four squads and each given a flag to defend, a bonus flag is also placed in the middle. A point is given for each flag collected. After each game, teams rotate their start position clockwise and after four games (having each played each start point) the points are added together to declare the winner. Following this other squad based games can be played included attackers vs defenders where one squad defends against the other three with emphasis placed on squads working together as a team. Another alternative is for squads to be joined together in a round robin format (Gold/White verse Green/Red, then Gold/Red verse Green/White & Gold/Green verse Red/White completing the round).
Field: Skirmish, Badlands, Northface, Bush Crash, Far East.
Objective: Eliminate the VIP
Scenario: A small force is sent out onto a large Bush Field with the objective of avoiding the larger force sent out to find them. Usually played with a time limit and elimination rules for all players. Often played with our stag parties, but can be played with other VIP’s being hunted.
Attackers verse Defenders
Field: Compatible with most fields of play, with special features for this format on; Bunker, Wild West, Pyramid, Trench, North Face, Badlands (Tower Defence see picture) and others.
Objective: Eliminate all defenders to capture their base.
Scenario; A defence force (usually ratio 1:2 or 1:3) must hold an objective for a set amount of time, whereas the attackers must keep making progress to capture the base. If the attackers take early loses the advance will stall giving the win to the defenders. If the defenders don’t defend their flanks, the attacking players will pin them with crossfire and the defence will fall.
Objective: Eliminate All Defenders.
Scenario; Similar to Attackers vs Defenders however this time it’s the smaller team that attackers. When ‘tagged’ the attacking player returns to their Respawn point after cleaning off splats at the safe room. Once a defending player is ‘tagged’ they respawn onto the attacking team. Virus is a battle verse time, once more and more defenders are recruited onto the attacking team the balance of power shifts to an all out attack. Virus is sometimes called Vampire or Zombie and can have subtle variations, always listen to your referee’s brief.
