What is Woodsball And How is it Played?

So what is Woodsball and how exactly is it played?

Woodsball is a form of paintball that is usually played in the woods or woods like surroundings, hence the "woods" in Woodsball. The basic rules are the same as in all forms of paintball. Safety is paramount, safety gear is still the standard (masks, barrel socks, etc) and all the common paintball etiquette that one needs to follow. And, of course, to have as much fun as possible.

One thing that is different from speedball is that not all fields are the same and is no set official layouts of the playing field - the simplest being out in the woods.

There also a variety of ways to play woodsball. Some of the most popular are, Civil war (aka, Gettysburg), Presidential - where you need to protect whoever was duly "elected" for president and - and one of the most common, capture-the-flag.

Woodsball itself is not as organised professionally as Speedball with all its sponsors and listed events and tournaments but there are a few organization that are out there who promote woodsball and do organize tournaments and events - Google and see if there are any in your local area.

Many die hards of woodsball can go all out and use Milsim markers and full camouflage.

For those who don't know, milsims stand for `military simulation`. There are some great marker brands out there who make some awesome looking markers that look like the real deal. Some known names are; Tipmann, Tacamo, Kingman, and BT. There are a few more that make exceptional milsim paintball markers but they are probably the most known brands.

They have milsim paintball makers of all type; from modern milsims to the good old classic AK47s. Also there are many extra accessories that are available if you really want to get into it. From paintball grenades and grenade launchers to various types of quality scopes.

One of the main attractions for Woodsball, in my honest opinion, is the added realism to the game. There are also many ways to play and strategy to use depending on the playing field and being able to play in a scenario really adds to the excitement. Have said that I am more of a speedballer myself, the great part of woodsball is the flexibility in the play style and how you can really into a specific role that mimics real life military units. Snipers, Machine gunners, hit and run etc.

Simply put woodsball is really just another way of playing paintball and like its brother, speedball, the same basic rules of engagement are followed. If you are the type of person who likes the feel of using military like guns and reenacting some your favorite call of duty map, woodsball is a great and incredibly fun sport to play with a group of friends.

Plus it makes a great picture with everyone dressed up as commandos!
