Military Simulation Paintball

I recently discovered the military simulation paintball scene in Cape Town and was surprised to see how big it is. MilSim paintball is a form of paintball where the tactics, realism and scenarios each play very important roles. Strict rules apply and teams usually play against each other in good faith, trusting that each member will adhere to the set rules.

I recently played with an awesome team called Ghost Squad Paintball at one of the country’s best paintball ranges, called X Paintball. Check out the team on their website:¬†http://www.ghostsquadpaintball.com/

The team meets up once a month to play at X-Paintball, if you’re interested contact the field in Somerset West to inquire about their open days.

Most MilSim games are play with magazine fed paintball guns, which enhance the style and feel of each game. The marker (or gun) I use at the moment is a Spyder EMR5.
