The difference of these balls from others is having less probability to burst in markers but more on the target and their bright color could easily be distinguished from farther places.


The Game Rules
Below are the basic rules of paintball based on the professional rule book. A detailed briefing about the rules will be given before the games.

* When you are hit and marked by a paintball, you announce that you are hit and leave the field directly. If you fail to do that, your team receives penalty points.
* If the paintball mark on you is smaller than a quarter-sized splat, it is an invalid shot. If a splat spreads on you from a different place (for example when you kneel on a painted trench) it is called "spray". In both situations, the ref may call you "out" by looking at the quantity of the paint on you.
* If a player, whom you think you have hit, continues to play, you may make him checked by showing this opponent to the judge and saying "paintcheck".
* You may ask for help from the nearest judge if you have a problem (such as your CO2 gas is over) during the game by saying "control".
* In both "paintcheck" and "control" situations, the player who is being checked is "neutral". During being checked, nobody can shoot this player; this player cannot shoot anyone neither. The hits which are made during these situations are invalid.
* If the game stops for whatever reason, no player can change his location.
* During the game, players can exchange all kinds of paintball gear, however, they cannot take materials from an eliminated player.
* The players cannot pass across the field boundaries. They are eliminated if they do so.
* Eliminated players cannot reveal the opponent team's movements or intents verbally or by movements.
* Alcohol is prohibited before or during the game.

The Safety Rules
* Taking goggles off in the field is not permitted.
* Players must lock in the safety locks of their markers outside the playing field.
* All kinds of physical contact with opponents such as pushing/pulling is prohibited.
* It is not permitted to shoot a player with a barrel leaned against him.
* It is not permitted to shoot players who are eliminated, surrendered, being checked by the judges. It is also prohibited to shoot towards people in the safety zone.
* When your CO2 gas is over or there is a problem about the gas which is actually a small possibility- ask for help from judges. Since CO2 is a freezing gas, it can cause local freezing in the area that it contacts for a long time.
* You should play paintball with the clothes which cover your whole body that Paintsign provides you.
