Game types

I have looked through many websites and read many variations of games for paintball, but can anyone think of a game that they have played or heard of where it was not one team of players vs. another team of players? As a side note, for my definition of a "team" even 1 player could make up the entire team, in such games as Bounty Hunters where multiple people hunt one person.

There's a few; I'm going to put the names I've heard but if there probably are more proper names for them

Fugitive: Everyone is against one person. This is decided before the start, of course, This really only works on a larger field too. The one person (aka, the fugitive) gets a one-to-five minute head start on the field. After this is up, everyone else comes in. The way the fugitive wins is if he gets everyone else out. The rest of the people have a bit of a catch, though. The can ONLY hit (and break, of course) the fugitive in the arms or legs to win. If they do a headshot or break on the torso, the fugitive wins.

Assassin: This mode takes a bit more planning than most others. Make cards with everyone's names on them. If some people don't know each other, just add a bit of a description (jersey color, etc) Give one card to each person and make sure that they don't have themself. Then everyone has 1 minute to spread out, and the game starts. The point is to get the person on your card. Once you get them, they have to give you their card. The game ends when one person has all of the cards, or time it and whoever has the most cards at this time wins.

Bunny Hunt: One person volunteers to be the "bunny". They get some form of a shield, (ie, garbage can lid, etc) and get to take as much paint as they deem necessary. The rest of the people playing are the "hunters", and are only allowed to carry 20 paintballs. Once they run out, the player must leave the game. They cannot share paint if one person has all of theirs and another person is low on paint. The bunny wins if they eliminate all of the hunters, and of course the opposite is for the hunters.

Handfull of Paintballs (Also known as Gettysburg): No hoppers or pods. Everyone loads their paintballs one at a time, with their hand. Can be played in teams or solo.

Terminator: One player against everyone else. This one player is the "Terminator", and can only be out when shot in the shooting hand or marker. Everyone else is fair game for any shot.

Hope this helps!

On sunday me and my cousins and brother did a milsim. Me and one of my cousins were in an old truck and 3 others were in the ditch hiding alomg this dirt road. So we are hauling down it at 85 and my cousin is in the back of the truck (with no doors) and when he sees someone he yells stop so i slow down and he shoots with the person back and forth. It would probaby be better with like 20 people along a road

Same website has a forum asking for people to post game types that they'll add to the website. You should forward them your ideas.

A good rendition of Assassin would be that according to the number of players. Example you got five players draw 5 cards. And everyone else would pick up a card and that would be their position. And then draw again 5 cards but this will be facing down. Let everyone pick. And that would be their target. If they get their own number they'll draw again. And once the game has start the person who takes down their target wins. The thrill of this game is that you don't know who's your back.

He's looking for games where it's NOT team based stating even 1 person constitutes a team. So are you looking for free-for-all (every man for themselves) type of games?
