Cost To Play Paintball?

Scenario 1: You bring your own paint and equipment and buy all day air and paint fee. How much does everything cost down to your own paintballs?

Example: I pay $15 field fee, $10 air fee, $10 paint fee, $40 case of paint.

Scenario 2: You have your own equipment, but you shoot field paint only.

Example: I pay $15 field fee, $10 air fee, $55 case of paint.

Also what's it cost for a rental if you don't bring your own equipment?

You need to establish a "minimum paint purchase" that's more reasonable. I've very, very rarely seen someone renting gear go through an entire case by themselves in a normal day. Usually a bag of $500 ($10-$20 locally) lasts them all day.

At my field on byop, I spend 10 to get in, and $11 for 500 balls. So $21. On none byop it's $20 for paint, and I get in for free. I get it pretty lucky.

Field nearby I pay $10 for field fee, then FPO at $20 / 500 and $37 / 1000 and $60 / 2000.

Though I don't think they can add, last week I paid for a buddy's field fee and 1000 rounds and they charged me $45

At the field I play at in Canada, there's no field fee, but it's FPO so $20 for a bag of 500.

25 to get in, free air all day and I've got my own stuff... FPO 70 bucks for a case of mid-grade paint (used to be lousy draxxus paint but switched to less lousy empire stuff)

I never go alone and always split cases but by the end of the day I've probably spent 120 on paintball...

Hate the cost of paint.... sucks so much. I feel like the sport would see a rise if the cost of paint went down.


At the field i go to its $15 for entry, 10$ for air, and 45$ for 2000 balls of ****ty draxxus.

If I go to my team field I get in free and I play pump primarily so splitting a case with a friend usually costs me 15 bucks for a bag of 500. So 15 bucks to play all day.
