PSP: Now it's a Major plus a Minor because you hit a player after receiving an obvious hit. (Obvious being anything you can SEE or feel or hear). You felt it, it's obvious. Once you call a ref over for a paintcheck, any hits are immediately classified as 'obvious'.

2.8.5. An obvious hit is any valid hit that leaves a mark and that the receiving player should
have seen, heard or felt, including any valid hit anywhere on the player’s body.13 A player with
an obvious hit is eliminated.
2.8.6. A player with an obvious hit that is in a location that the player cannot verify may ask a
judge or teammate to verify the hit before proceeding as otherwise required by2.7.1, but may
take no other action.
--If you’re not sure if a hit broke, and you can’t check it yourself, you can ask a ref or teammate to check it without penalty before
exiting the field of play, so long as you take no other action. You may choose to continue to play, HOWEVER, if it turns out that the
hit was valid, you will be assessed a major penalty plus a minor penalty for any opponents you shoot because you were playing with
an obvious hit, so you should consider carefully whether the risk of the penalty is worth continuing to play prior to getting the hit

that's a penalty - the severity of the penalty will change based on what league you play. Referee should assess a 1for1 penalty in the least for playing on, and the other player would be wiped clean (so long as no signal was made as to his elimination)
depending on where the hit is - anything you can feel is considered an obvious hit.. meaning you should have known you were hit... if you can't feel the difference between a paintball that bounces and one that broke you would do your team a favor by just walking off the field.
