This happened to me the other week. I play Stock Class so I can't have 3-4 balls hitting a dude and a lot of wipers see it as a luck shot, which was quite the opposite. Anyways a player I clearly hit on his knee when it was exposed a little brought it back in, waiting for him to yell out didn't hear anything. When he exposed himself again you could see he tried to wipe. I called a ref over, and the ref couldn't tell. (No anger torwards the ref, sometimes its hard to tell if its from the last game.) Seeing as he was back in I told my two team mates that I hit him and he's a wiper so when they flank him just be sure to hit him several times so there's no doubt. While they flanked him and drew his attention, I got a chance to run and bunker him. I was very nice about it because I just told him to surrender, with my barrel at his face and said "I guess this makes you out now unless you want to wipe again I'll be more than happy to take this shot at this close of range." Note: I didn't even have my finger on the trigger and would never shoot anyone purposly at that close of range in the mask. I just needed to scare him a little. Make him gain a little respect for the game and wanted him to realize damn, this guy could have really paid me back, but instead was merciful...After the game the kid actually apologized for wiping and thanked me for not trying to get revenge. I told him we were cool and he's lucky it was me, that some people are not as kind.

So there's my method, I don't light up a person, or try to make them "pay" atleast not using pain. I just make it obvious that I knew they wiped, and its unacceptable.

As i have said im not opposed to bonus ballling wipers and cheaters but i dont ever do it to new kids becasue maybe they just havent gotten the jist of how important sportsmanship is to the game, and karma will take car of itself for him, If I see someone I know who is experienced to the game i will go ahead and remind them of the pain of cheating with a few bonus balls

Call it stooping to thier level, I call it Newton's Thrid law of Motion. Your ACTION of wiping to remove the spot has the OPPOSITE REACTION of me placing more spots on you.

to be fair though id rather let a person walk away than give up my position anyway, besides if i can pop somebody and them not know where im at it must be a great spot right :D :ghillie:

Score one for the space monkey! :D I hate cheaters as much as anybody, but playing in an unsafe manner just lowers yourself to their level.

Hehe, space monkey. I can't decide if I should change the avvy or not.

Anyways, Guy In Digi Camo, I wouldn't even call a few extra balls headed their way stooping to their level, but the previous act of blasting away from 5 feet definitely would be. You'd be fine in my book to place a few more spots on the more experienced bodies :ghillie:. Besides, it those players that are keeping this sport going, teaching the new/newer players, displaying how it's played the right way by fiercely competing at times and still remaining great sports. It's all good.

I have been know to barrel tag wipers, no matter how tempting it was to pistol whip them xD. But I'm better than that, however at long range it is hard to see the target hits, so to make sure I DO keep shooting, I am using a 5" barrel on an A5 making it highly inaccurate the chances of me hitting the target more than 2 times is extremely dismal, yet alone hitting the target. Medium range the paintballs are visible and I will call the target out before he has the chance to look (force of habit). Close range, they freaking know....

I don't get too worked up over it, even when I'm pumping. People wipe, just shoot them again. If there's a ref around, tell the ref. Personally, I always shoot at the head, because A. it's much easier to take a hit in the mask and B. it's much harder to wipe a hit in the mask.

Nope, that would put you quite squarely into "assault" territory.

Not to mention that it wouldn't just be the person that you hit being affected by it. It would get on everyone who was nearby them. Don't even get me started on what would happen if you chopped the ball when you were shooting it.

Not to mention, I believe pepperballs are still VERY restricted, mostly to LE. I know there were come civilian pepperball applications in development, and while I don't know if those were successful, you did need need to go through some certification or registration process to purchase these.

It's very tempting, but becoming a "vigilante" of sorts to stop wipers is just not the right way to go about changing wiper behavior. In addition to that, if you get caught for bonus-balling, it's your word against the wiper's, and if the ref can't decide who is telling the truth, both of you are going to be ejected.

Be sure to point them out to everyone around. Nothing like public humiliation to make you re-think your play.

Just unload on them if you have the shot still..Try playing a game with two wipers that are standing right next to each other in a game when I got them out several times and they weren't even shooting at where I was. I ended up running out of paint on them and I walked away to get more, came back and told them to get out of the game.

Well, when I played some outlaw this weekend there wasn't a wiper, but the guy had his gun up and was walking towards the dead box. One of my team mates walked past him, and he lowered his gun and shot my teammate. The team mate went to the dead box and talked to the owner of the field. After the game the owner of the field took him aside and said that cheating is not tolerated and if you do it again you are going home. In my opinion that is the best thing to do, in the same case as a wiper.

1) Play fair. Ignore the fact that someone else cheated until AFTER the game.
2) Discreetly go up to the owner/ref and let them know what happened. Give the player a warning, if he has already had a warning, boot him.

Do the same thing to them as a person who won't call themselves out:

Bonus ball.

Tryed this?


My theory on wipers is to pepperball his arse. that might teach them a lesson or you can just go for the throat on the next shot. we had some really bad paintballs awhile back and the fill was like toothpaste. cant wipe that off will tell you now
