As we all know, paintball is one of the safest sports/games IF you follow all the rules. But being an extreme sport, accidents do happen.

So, what's the worst injury you've received or seen?

The worst I've received is a shot to the back of my left hand at point blank range. It was an indoor field and I was duck walking to stay below a wall, and heading to a corner. At the same time a team mate was coming to the same corner from 90░ to my left. My hand just breached the corner as he pulled the trigger.... I didn't break anything in my hand, but I did have a nice scar for 4 years.

Worst I've seen is a broken wrist. It was a girls first game and she dove for cover, landed on her wrist. She wasn't in a lot of pain and it seemed more sprained than anything. Later in the day, when she got to the hospital, x-rays showed a break and a fracture. And yes, after she healed, she played again.

Taking a ball to the throat from about 20-30 feet out. Right in the adam's apple. Damn that hurt. Either than or spraining some of the ligaments in my left knee.

First game I played. I was laying down in some tall grass. Guy got right behind me. I didn't surrender. Couldn't move the shoulder much for about 15min. Was still sore for a week.

I've got off lucky, just a lot of welt-shaped scars on my forearm near my elbow. Some are just bad luck (Got shot in a sunburn), some are douchebaggery (shooting hot), and some were mainly for the lulz (Being a zombie)

I sprained my ankle jumping off an old combine. (We played in a pasture where a friend parked junk cars, combines, etc.)

Other than that, just welts. Some bled... no big deal.

I dislocated my shoulder once.

Was screwing around, drawing fire. Had a pistol tucked in the back of my kilt (yes, kilt). I'm running to a bunker and someone starts laning me.
So, as any logical person would do, I tried to flip over it. Only, once I was in the air, I realized that I would be coming down right on my pistol, so I tried to turn a bit.
I am, however, not exactly graceful. I land directly on my shoulder and hear a pop. Stayed in the bunker for a while until I got shot out, then went straight to the medic.

The one medic lady had actually seen me do the flip and had been waiting for me haha. Ended up using my jersey as a sling. Luckily this was in the last hour or so of the scenario, so I didn't miss much.

My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.

The worst I have got was twisted my ankle falling down a ridge, and got shot in the neck once.

I know a few guys who use to wear a cup and they said once they got hit in the area the cup held them together that the pain was worse than if they had not been wearing one, I never have worn a cup while playing so I don't know how it would feel, and I hope I never have to find out.
