I understand why some people say that gun hits shoudlnt count, but paintball isnt war! so there really shounlt be any "if it was a reall gun it wounlt kill you"

Cause im gonna break out the arguement "if it was a real gun the sport wounld be dead within two saturdays!"

Edit, forgot my veiw!

I think it should count in both unless you just wanna have some fun and make only body shots, personaly one the really fun games is goggle shots only! but its hard and you get alot of welts, but it teaches you to move up and such.

If gun hits don't count as a "hit", they should render the gun inoperable. If they player has a backup pistol, they could stay in the game, otherwise get yer DUMPER to the dead zone.

Yesterday I was playing on a field where the gun hits didn't count. I hit one guy's hopper like, 6 times! In "real life", his weapon would be completely inoperable and on the ground, if not exploded!

Otherwise, gun hits should always count, especially in woodsball.

I think in rec/woodsball gun hits shouldnt count. It doesn't 'kill' you in the spirit of reality and keeps the game going longer. I can see in CQB type matches they should count as mentioned earlier with blind shooting being an issue.

I'm out there to have fun and feel that it keeps the match rolling and makes someone have to get a real kill instead of trying to find the odds and ends of a marker setup to shoot. Seems cheesy to me and not in the spirit of the game to die that way. If you can't get an angle on me then get a better angle, don't shoot up my marker cause you can't do anything else.

If it was a real gun I'd drop the shot up gun and get you with my backup...

What if you could only see the gun of some kid who's shooting 50bps, how would you kill him? Don't give a bunch of tactics n crap cuz u know you'd judt try to shoot their, gun, its the rules wether you like it or not, if you dont like it play outlaw

and for thread maker, use the searc i think the dude i quote made 1 of these threads b4

I only play that gun hits count no questions asked, but im oppen to the other side, i can see where it could be fun to play without them, i wouldnt but im sure other people would.

But blind shooting is illeiagle no matter where you go, and thats another reason i dont like gun hits not counting, that and the useing it as a sheild. (and 50bps.... well i'd shoot his gun, but if there was a gun that was 50bps and it got hit, that thing probably costs more than the field with whatever hopper is on it, so im guessing that kid will call himself out to clean it!)

and b/c the ref section is new, this post is ok, besides nobody wants to necro-post

Well fine, if guns hits shouldnt count then neither should packs, radios, shoes, arms, legs, pods, remotes, or tank hits. After all, they wouldnt kill you. Shoot, if you got shot in the torso in real life and had a medic aroudn that wouldnt kill you either!

Paintball is a game, if you were playing mil-sim or wanted to waste some paint then go ahead and play 'army' ball, but 99% of the time PAINTBALL rules ought to apply.

It depends, if you decide before you go and play, if gun hits count.

I like to play killshots only and let's face it the gun isn't a vital organ.

It depends on the game. Scenarios and Tournys yes. But if you have a group of new players or kids then no, that way it'll keep them on the field a little longer and they enjoy it more. That way the sport will gain players. But also its the fields decision on what they wanna do.

It should be pointed out that in the real world you do not have a giant hopper on a gun to hit. The profile of an actual weapon makes it nearly impossible to hit.

Almost all the fields that I play count gun hits, but when I play outlaw we do not. Also when I played a big game against an actual Army unit, they did not count gun hits either.
