How many paintballs do u use per match?

How many paintballs do u use in one match. I only shoot about a hopper and a pod at the most. I have an etek and i dont shoot that much unless i know i have a chance of hitting my target.

It depends. I normally go through a hopper per game with my Etha playing hyperball against friends and rentals combined. Sometimes, I go through a hopper and 3 pods if its a longer game where I have to pin someone down or lock off a lane or something like that. I always bring out at least 3 pods, most of the time 4 with me just in case.

This.

There are games I can play a half hopper while getting kills and winning and there are games I can play five pods and a hopper and be picking paint off the ground to win.

Yeah, it just depends on the game format and the size of opposition. Sometimes I will only use half a hopper and sometimes more. But, so far I've never used more than 2 pods.

Depends where and what I'm playing. Usually only a hopper and a pod will last me a game (includes switching sides) if I am playing recball But, I'll have at least 2 pods on me. If I am playing speedball its not uncommon to use a hopper and 3 pods (switching sides).

It depends, is the paint good? Poor paint leads to LOTS more shooting trying to get it to go where you want...

I usually use 1,000 paintballs per day when I play, if the paint is good, I may only use 400.

I've won games without firing a single shot. (I play woodsball).

Playing with a case of GOOD paint, meaning it's going exactly where I want it to, I can usually play two games back to back on a hopper and two pods or less.

With poop paint the same two back to back games could take a hopper and 3 pods. I refuse to carry any more than that on me.

Pretty much that, it depends. Sometimes I get my sneak on successfully and only need about 20-50 balls. Other times not so much.

When I play pump for a day I usually use 500-1000 balls. Semi is usually 1000-1500

Usually one or two balls per game. Really just depends on if I wince up and miss shooting myself in the face with the first shot.








It really all depends. Some days I go out and blow through paint shooting a case and half in 6 hrs of woodsball, spoolball, castles, and city towns. Other times I go out and will only shoot half a case playing the exact same amount of time and games. It really all depends on my mentality for that day. The longer that I've played though I consistently shoot less paint. I really try and go out and only take smart shots, shoot at most 5 bps, and aim first then shot rather than starting a stream of paint then bringing it on target. If I go through a case these days, its because I'm laning or providing cover for my teammates to bump up.

This. Absolutely this. This is the reason I buy high-end paint. I'm actually SAVING money. Most people don't realize it and think the more they're shooting, the better off they'll be. I've been forced to use crappy field paint a time or two and while yes, I still had fun -- I could have had just as much or MORE fun shooting 1/3 the paint had it been high-end paint.

I wonder if paintball manufacturers have consciously engineered their paint to be lower quality at certain price brackets -- knowing full-well that people will ultimately spend more money when paint is "cheaper." Hmmmmmm......

It seems like I used to be able to get really, really good paint for $50/case. Now, paint in that price range is absolute poop, most often.
