Yeah, I'm starting to get weirded out by some of the things the players do, and I'm wondering if its normal, so I figured I'd ask you guys what's weird and whats normal?

Kinda things I've seen:

After handing a kid a hopper in the container we use to kit out players, he asked me "How does this fire paintballs? Do I have to throw them?"

While cleaning an Inferno, I noticed that the bolt was in backwards. Not sure if it worked like that, but this was after a day of play, so it made me wonder.

Having not one, but TWO players hide behind me on the castle game, on the grounds that it was "Safer"

And I heard about a guy once taking a leak in the middle of a game, although I'm not sure if that one is real.

Also: How do I get one of those funky ref bars for my sig?

umm iv had all of those happen... but the one that keeps getng me is
people keep taking their masks off..... even after we show them what happens to a cardboard box being shot at close range.i guess they must think there eyes are stronger.
and to get the bar go to the ref club or something. it was a thread on this area somewhere....

Hehe, that gave me an evil idea to show the newbs that show. They always take theirs masks off.

"This is your eye on paintballs." *proceeds to lit up cut-out, leaving holes everywhere*

duct tape works good to. to keep the mask on the head that is.
if that fails bring out the air compresed staple gun

I've only refed a few games, but once going out to play on a walk on day our group being lead by the ref came across some umm how can I say this delicatley.... soiled underwear on the ground. Kid size.

Must have gone up against a 20+ bps gun for the first time....

Also....ewww on the underwear!

Something from today: a 30 on 30 Speedball game (Rather Crowded?) had both teams hiding behind the back bunkers, affraid to move forward!

well this happened to me i just finished reffing and was getting in some play time on the hyper ball field with some rec players. i was making my way down the snake when thud i caught one in the side of my profiler.(or so i had thought) some where splattering on the plastic tubes. i back handed the lower part of my goggles to see if there was paint there(None) i called for a paint check and the reff called me clean. i shot two guys out and the game came to an end. after i left the field and was behind the netting i lifted my mask and a unbroken ball fell out from the chin area that my goutee brushes against inside( you make the call here but i wonder if the pros in the nppl could pull a cheat like that off (LOL)it suprised me to. it was pretty funny when my buddy told the ref he knew he had hit me.
i will give up my marker only after you pry my cold rigid fingers from the trigger

^^^Woah! That's crazy. I had something like that happen to me once. I was falling back because we were being overrun and I felt about 2-3 balls hit my back, the ref called me clean so I went on with the game. Later in the day, I got my air filled and but friend found a couple balls on top of my tank. Not as cool as yours but almost the same thing.

Good stories. Whats wrong with the one about taking a leak. You gotta go, you gotta go. I have done that a few times.

Last night game I played I walked down to a base that was in play, but no one was around. I checked it out with my mag lite and then found a tree. Luckily no one around with NVG.

Catching a stray (unless you do it right in front of the opposition, it might be intentional if they hate you enough :D) with your fly down wouldn't be pleasant.

Perhaps Spec Ops could create some type of armoured cub with extendable tube! For Peeing without the fear of being ambushed! Could even be an added extra to the sabre vest! (Hey, you know their motto...and I'm pretty sure releiving yourself is one of those "Needs to be done" type things)
