The Paintball Mod for Minecraft adds several paintball-themed items to Minecraft, such as the Paintball guns, armors, bases, flags and more.
This enables you to play the infamous game in Minecraft, and as such, it is best played with friends.
The mod includes several weapons like pistols, rifles, shotguns and even paint launchers, it also includes various armors for each team, instant bases that makes you able to quickly and easily setup an arena and more, all in different colors for the different teams.
Several other items are added as well, such as med-kits and scanners. All in all, it’s everything you need to be able to play paintball in Minecraft.
The mod requires Minecraft Forge.
The weapons and armors can also be used in survival, as they still do plenty of damage to mobs and enemies, while the armor also protects against arrows and melee blows, not just paint, so the Paintball Mod is not entirely useless when playing solo.
The base can also be used as a quick survival base, as it is easy to setup and sturdy enough, simply place a block and the base will pop up.
Here are some screenshots of the mod:
To place a base, simply create a instant-base block, and find a suitable location, like this place:
