Most fields allow field paint to be brought back. Changing colors every week doesn't work for 2 or 3 different reasons. So there's no way to keep previously bought paint off the field after its been brought home, unless you check everyone's bags before they enter the facility.
With all that being said, field paint can be frozen and brought back. So frozen paintballs aren't a legitimate reason for field paint only.
Edit: After being a ref for years, I recall someone trying to shoot frozen paint once. But only once.
To me having field paint keeps the money being spent on paint at the field where you are shooting it, instead of walmart and academy sports.
