How do I know the number of paintballs I have left on the day?
Paintballs purchased at the start of a session are allocated to you on a player tag. You are issued with a Pod Belt which carries the paint & a number of paintballs to start with, you then collect any remaining paint throughout the session. If you purchase any extra paintballs out on the field these are also allocated to you on the player tag. Your referee can check the tag and notify you of remaining paint if you are unsure.
It is your responsibility as the player to collect and use all of your paintballs. No refunds or exchange is given for unused or forgotten paint, a basic used it or lose policy applies. At the end of a session any unused paint is forfeited and legally can not be removed from the paintball venue.
