While Minecraft already incorporates plenty of options for multiplayer gaming, this mod lets you work the hobby sport of paintball into that fun.
For a fan of paintball, it can be disappointing when schedule, weather, or distance issues prevent you from participating in the hobby, The Paintball Mod for Minecraft serves as a mild substitute for the real thing, letting you enjoy the hobby within a game known for its creativity in design and terrain and without any weather issues beyond the occasional power-killing thunderstorm. This mod doesn’t just give you a single recipe to craft a mundane paintball gun; it offers several different varieties of weapons that can fire pellets of any color supported by the game’s palette.
Even a single paint pellet recipe, consisting of four glass cubes and the colored dye of your choice, creates 36 paint pellets. When building your paintball loadout, make sure that you use the same color of dye for your armor and weaponry that you use for your ammunition. The last thing you want to do is to start firing pellets colored just like the enemy team’s color, unless you are secretly planning on playing as a saboteur.
One major perk of this mod, beyond the pre-established crafting recipes for the necessary equipment, is that you can create some insanely cool and challenging terrain in a fraction of the logistics required for a real location. While a paintball player can easily bob and weave within industrial and forest terrain, the same cannot be said for a Minecraft paintball course laden with lava, ice blocks, conveyer belts, and all sorts of other hazards.

One benefit of Minecraft format paintball, over the real version, is that there is no chance of being hurt or needing to clean up.
