The Minecraft Paintball Mod adds exciting new items and gameplay features that enhance the multiplayer experience. The Paintball Mod allows you to create bases and objectives as well as equip yourself with brand new armor and weapons. This unique content allows for hours and hours of competitive fun through LAN or the internet.
Each base requires armor of the same color to access and is used for protection and as an equipment depot. Recipes are the same for each team and within each base you will normally place an armor rack, weapon rack, and med kit for team use. They go into cooldown after being used, which prevents certain weapons and items from being spammed and possibly ruining games.
Of course, the most important feature of any paintball game is the weapons and there are plenty to choose from! You can craft a pistol, shotgun, assault rifle, sniper rifle, grenade launchers, claymores, c4, and all the ammo you will need. Each weapon is carefully balanced and has separate damage values and firing rates. The pistol shoots at a medium rate and does medium damage, while the sniper rifle fires at the slowest rate but does the highest damage. You can also go into a sighted mode for each gun to increase your accuracy.
Explosives are finely balanced and add even more variation to the gameplay. After placing C4 you must left click on them to sync them with your remote, then a simple right click will cause them to explode. Claymores explode when enemies go near them and will not go off near teammates. Grenades can be tossed by hand or shot for further distances with a grenade launcher. Using all of these items correctly can lead to some chaotic and fun gameplay.
The last thing that needs to be mentioned is that the Paintball mod allows you to place flags throughout the map. These flags can be used as objective points where huge explosive fights can take place! I highly recommend this mod for anyone looking for some competitive Minecraft fun with friends or strangers!
