Your Favorite Amusing Questions

What are your favorite amusing questions that you get asked by inexperienced players? They can be about anything--your gun, your gear, the game, etc.

My favorites are:

"Is that a shotgun?" referring to my sniper.

Which is usually followed by "A SNIPER? Does it shoot harder, like a .50 cal Barrett?"

"Can we hit them with our guns, if we get too close to the other team?" (Yes, a 12 year old actually asked me that once)

"So, are you a professional? I want you on my team!" Because I'm holding literally any gun that isn't a rental gun, or because I'm wearing anything that's not overalls or jeans and a hoodie.

Whatcha got?

I got asked about the "extra barrel" on my longbow at few times during a game. It was amusing, but I can definitely tell how they would think that.

I get the shotgun comment a lot, along with pumps shooting faster/farther.

One of my favorite pump misconceptions is when they hear "pump" and think this:


(the more you pump it, the higher the velocity).

Most say something like "So, how many times do you pump it? If you pump it too much you can't play--I saw the sign that says 250 FPS max!"

I enjoy pumping my T-Stock and telling kids I'm filling my tank.

That reminds me--I once totally confused a new employee (who knew nothing about paintball) by asking if she could re-fill my 12 gram. I just walked up, set an empty on the counter, and said "Can I get a fill?"

The look of pure confusion was awesome.

I used to get asked if my nightmare was a shotgun, and how many balls it fired per shot.

Why do you play with THAT?
- referring to the pre-2k marker I'm using at that moment.

My favorite of all time; "If I sign a waiver, can I go play without having to wear a mask?" asked by a 12 year old.
