Do paintballs explode?

Yes, the paintballs explode on contact. They break open and release the brightly colored powder inside. Be sure to avoid direct eye exposure when using or cleaning equipment because it can cause irritation or temporary blindness if accidentally shot in the eyes (which is why safety masks and glasses are always recommended).

Can you bring your own BBS to Paintball Explosion?

Yes, paintballs from any company are allowed as long as they meet the velocity requirements for recreational paintball. Here at Paintball Explosion we recommend a minimum of 1.4J or 450 fps for a box of 2000 rounds because that’s what our equipment is designed to shoot and it’s what will create a better experience on the field. This is necessary to maintain safety and fairness among all players.
