and/or freeze the paintballs, it DOES because a deadly weapon, especially if somebody is not wearing a mask. If you got shot in the temple, at relatively close range, without protection of any kind, with a paintball marker's velocity above 300, and (possibly even without) with frozen paintballs, I'm certain it would do permanent damage or be lethal. A paintball marker set above 300 FPS can easily break bones in your hand.
Freezing paintballs makes them brittle meaning they break easier.
