I usually BYOP for most local events, which costs me $35 ($25/case for Nelson paint locally, plus a $10 BYOP fee). The fee doesn't run "per case," so the cost is less than 35/case if I use multiple cases.


Field paint around here is $50-65 for mid-range paint (usually Empire or PMI). One indoor field (only FPO field I know of in the area) charges $75/case, and it's Procaps paint with their name on it. I don't know what kind of Procaps paint it is though (or rather what it would be equivalent to).

I went to one place and one case of REC paint was 140$, this is pretty bad but, that was more than my spyder victor II.
How much is the paint in your area.

Man, i could get 3 1/2 gases for that much at PEE SHOOTER's. I usually spend between 30-40 bucks a case, but if i go to Skirmish USA I try to find people to group up with to get the twelve case discount of 73 bucks.

Paintball Paradise: $170 a case.

You guys are getting ripped off. I shared paint at that one place. My regular place has a case for 70 bucks, so you guys that get it for less are REALLY lucky.


Thanks for the info, the cheapest I have ever seen was online paint for 20 bucks. I thought that was amazing.

Most expensive paint here is at a FPO field, $65 - Marbs, Chronic, Xball.

But pump = less paint, so I buy by the bag.

I either shoot $62 dollar a case xball or blaze. If I'm feeling cheap I shoot $50 a case chronic.

That's of course when I use my mini, when I play pump (mostly) my paint is free :laugh: I just ask a friend for a handfull and that will generally last me 2-3 games.

Holy Smokes you guys are getting done dirty if your paying anything more than 75 a case for premium......shoot, come to think of it for more than a hundred bucks a case I better get a massage .... a case of beer...something Geez_O!


No no, that $120 is for Hotbox. I don't have the option of anything better, and I wouldn't want anything worse unless it was like $10/case.

At my local place ( paintball charleston) I can buy a box of marbalizer for about 50dollars but I can get crappy paintballs for about 20 or less.

It really sucks because around here if you buy expensive paint it has been sitting there for like 3 years. Everyone is cheap and the buy Visible Impact so if you shell out $80 a case for Marballizers you will get the same performance from Visible Impact because the Visible Impact is relatively fresh and the Marballizers are as old as EvilFingers.

Well at PBC they get new paint weekly it seems like so all the paint is nice a fresh so that the marbz will be alot better than any visible impact paintballs.

If we are playing at an actual field we can't bring our own paint in.

The fields around here suck. I have better officiating and safety in my backyard where we play. Pathetic on our fields part.
