For woodsball, I just like a nice sturdy ply wood bunker. They work great, and they are fairly easy to build.

i like bunkers made out of pallets (sp.?) that places stack things on.

I really like small evergreen trees too, cus you can look through them and shoot through them, but it's hard for incoming balls to break.

a big plastic barrel is always cool. Can be positioned. Like stacked up to block a door, or use it to protect a open side of ur bunker.

me and my friends used to just drag fallen trees and stack them up between two or three standing trees, then fill in the cracks with foliage. it took some work but they came out awesome when they were finished, soemtimes up to 20 feet long and 3-4 feet high

This belongs in recball, so i'll move it there.

If you're into the scenario scene though, try building something like what my buddies and i did. We made it look like a WWII foxhole, but we threw a roof on it with supports so you could also stand on the roof.

It was built into the hillside and it was around 5ft deep in the back, and 3 1/2 feet deep in the front. (since the hill was on a slant) The way the roof slanted you could run right down the hill and over it without even knowing it was there, sat flush with the side. The front though was dug out a bit so you could shoot out of it, as well were part of the sides. The bottom was made of gravel and then a wood floor to allow for water drainage. The roof had a latch that you could lock from the inside.

All in all it makes for a great game. Playing a game of "defend the bunker" turned into one of our favorite games to play. Talk about a rush! LOL. Never would three guys ever be so close after a game in the bunker.

Just something to think about.

Pallets are horrible. I have some, but only because they’re free. Too many spots for shots to get through. Best bunkers out there are made out of plywood or spools. (That’s IMO of course)

pallets are like wood peices put together to put things on like in a warehouse, so you can get a forklift or something like that under easily.

pallets are offset like shown, with each dash being a thinnish board and they are held together at the joints by other boards. like headly said, though, they are not very good cover because they are off set; unless you are being shot at directly head on, a ball can easily slip through the cracks and hit you.

my personal favorite is the big wooden spools they use for telephone wires, they can be rolled into place, but can also provide good (but not invincible) cover.


btw, that foxhole looks awesome headly, must be fun to play in that thing (especially against those that don't know it's there )

pallets are only horrible if you onle use 1. if you put a bunch, like 1 across, the one vertical, there acturally pretty good

We have about an acre woods and it is so close to tournment styleit's flippin sweet. Maybe someday I'll post pics. Bunkers for the woods are easy to obtain. Alls you need are sheets of wood, wood scraps, old chemical barrels (I have these becuase i live on a farm, herbicides and pesticides come in them) screws, drill, and maybe a chain saw. Hedge clippers also help (not for bunkers...continue reading)

Now. First start with big sheets and screw them to some small trees. Make sure they are secure and that wind will not be strong enough to blow them away. Next construct bunkers out of the scraps. Set the chemical barrels in the places u want, screw them securely to a peice of wood such as a small 2x4 and then screw those to the trees so ur barrels wont blow away. Next bust out ya' chain saw! Saw a bunch of fallen limbs in sizable pieces and stack them up into bunkers. Use stakes to hold the logs in place. If u dig holes and make sure they can drain then u can do that and stack logs up around the hole (we ahve one of those). Doors can be laid on their sides for cover too. Our woods is the ultimate! Your's can be too with my simple steps! :: copyright:: lol

note: hedge clippers are to cut down underbrush to prevent paintballs from hitting it cause thats annoyin as heck.

i wonder if you could "catch" paintballs with that. i say this because one time i hung a hoody i was wearing from a low branch (as a distraction) and my friend jokingly lit it up with his silver bullet. surprisingly, not a single paintball broke on it, and we then reused the paintballs, no problem. if you could make the tarp do that, it would be sweet.
