Playing Paintball In The Rain
We all prefer to play paintball in perfect, sunny, and not too hot weather but unfortunately that isn’t always the case! Depending on where you live, you may have to play in the rain now and then. Playing paintball when it’s raining certainly has its challenges, as moisture will affect your paintballs and your gear dramatically. Read on to learn tips and tricks for playing paintball in the rain.
Most electronic markers will be fine in the rain but a few precautions can prevent mishaps. Most circuit boards are sealed against moisture but keeping water out of the grip frame is still best practice. Some players just tape over the grips; some take the grips off and tape around the frame before putting the grips back on. The eye covers are another potential point of water entry. The drier you keep your marker’s internals, the better.
We hope this helps you next time it's raining on game day. The #1 things to remember is play safe and stay dry!
