Teamforce “Rules of Paintball!”

These are some of our fun “Rules of Paintball” to give you something to think about before your next battle at Teamforce Swansea!

If this player is shooting paintballs at you at Teamforce Swansea, a barricade is a good idea to take cover behind!
Paintball Rule Number 13
“Never share a paintball barricade with anyone braver (or crazier) than you.

So what are our Paintball Rules all about? These rules are a bit of fun and meant to provide some advice or observations about the game of paintball. They are not the same as the safety rules that we enforce at Teamforce Paintball and Laser Tag Centre Swansea, because they are there for a very important reason and ensures that our excellent safety record is maintained.

Paintball Rule Number 13 is one of our favourites. Why is that you might ask? Well in our experience of playing paintball if you share a barricade with either a brave or crazy type of player, the chances are you are in the middle of the battle and absolutely bossing it! Hopefully your fellow player will be getting all the paintballs aimed at him/her and not you, so you will need to make the important decsion whether to share the barricade or not.

Paintball or Laser Tag, which do you prefer to play?

Many of our customers ask us which game they should play, either paintball or laser tag. Our response to this is why not try both and see for yourself which you prefer. With many of our customers being repeat visitors to our centre for either paintball or laser tag, we are now seeing many customers booking both games. They both offer great fun in their own way.

Paintball has been around over thirty years and has developed into a global activity where there are even professional players. For the majority of people paintball is a fun day out in the fresh air, with a competitive aspect. With the advent of low impact junior paintball, which uses smaller 50 calibre paintballs it is now much more accessible to all types of people.

The latest Laser Tag equipment is just like what you would use in online gaming. It is a great option for you to try as your first shooting type activity. Laser Tag at Teamforce Swansea has proved to be really popular since we introduced it almost 3 years ago. Laser Tag is now very popular for all sorts of customers. More and more corporate business groups have booked to have some fun whilst building their teamwork skills.

Whichever you want to play, here at Teamforce our goal is to provide our customers with the best experience possible. Whichever you book, or perhaps you will book both, we look forward to providing a great day out for you.

Attack, hide or Run Away?

Lock and load with paintballs, pop that smoke grenade and then…………….?

The age old paintball question does not go away when you are behind a barricade covered in paintball splats. Do I go for the flag in the Castle Zone and win the game for the team, or do I just hide there hoping the other team will run out of ammo? It doesn’t matter which way you cut it, if you are behind this sort of barricade and you are feeling the heat from the other team, make that decision and go for it.

The old saying attack is the best form of defence is often true in our experience at Teamforce Swansea. Ask for covering fire from your team mates, check you are fully loaded with paintballs, pop that smoke grenade to provide some cover and then go for glory. You know you want to!

Top 5 tips for an awesome ambush! | Perfect for our activity days!

Here are our top 5 tips for an awesome ambush – perfect for our Easter half term activity days!

1.Communication is key! – Make sure you know what you’re doing and that your teammates know what the plan of attack is. Have a quick team meeting before the mission starts!

2. Stock Up! – Never ambush the enemy when you don’t have enough ammo! Know your team’s ammo state so you know how much everyone has and how many grenades you can use (Top tip – use a ThunderFlash to signal the ambush or even a BB Grenade!)

3. Position yourselves! – Have every one of your teammates in position – you should already know your team’s numbers so make sure you put an even number of players in each position (Top tip – when defending the castle, don’t forget to position players all around to stop the enemy sneaking up from the side!)

4. Don’t be a sitting duck! – If the enemy spots you, don’t become a sitting duck! Instead, run in a zig-zag to new cover until you are out of their line of sight! (Top tip – before you come to our Easter Half Term Activity days familiarise yourself with our zone maps so you know your way around!)

5. Dress the part! – Finally, make sure you and your teammates are well cammed up so the enemy doesn’t see you before the ambush starts!

Now that you have our top 5 tips for an awesome ambush why not put your skills to the test during our Easter half-term activity days! Find out more about our adventure filled days here!

Father’s Day @ Teamforce Swansea

PBALL Father’s Day is one of those celebrations we always tend to forget about until the very last minute. It doesn’t help matters that the date changes every year. Father’s Day is always on the third Sunday of June, which means there’s no fixed date for it each year.
