Paintball Soft

At Paintball USA, we offer two kinds of paintball guns.  The standard .68 caliber Tippmann Model 98 air gun is what most teens and adults use. It is a semi-automatic paintball marker that shoots a .68 caliber paintball, which is the size of a marble.

Paintball Soft is a .50 caliber semi-automatic air gun that is lighter in weight and shoots smaller .50 caliber paintballs that are about half the size of a .68 caliber paintball and less impact when hit with one. This is a perfect gun for beginners and first-time players.

Recommended ages for Paintball Soft is nine years old through adult. The .50 caliber marker is lighter in weight than the .68 caliber semi-auto.

When you are hit with a .50 caliber paintball, it is less painful due to its size.  Paintball USA has multiple outdoor playing fields. The referees keep games separated on fields for participants using the .68 rentals and separate games for paintball soft players using rental guns. Self-equipped advanced players do not join games with players using rental guns. If a rental player wants to join the advanced set, they are welcome to.

See our photo gallery for pictures of the .50 and .68 caliber markers and paintballs.

Prior to the usage of semi-automatic paintball guns, the pump paintball air gun and paintball air pistols were the only markers available. Most paintball guns operated on single CO2 cartridges back then.

Due to accidents and some fatal in using CO2 tanks, most paintball parks use only HPA compressed air tanks for their rental equipment and do not fill outside CO2 containers. A tank filled with compressed air is attached to the back of each marker which provides a pressurized force to propel the paintball at its target.
