Try dis

AGG: A paintball term believed to be started by the team/group Hostile Kids (starters of HK army). Refers to being cool, in an unexplainable agg way. Agg isnt cool agg is agg. It is cooler than cool. They way you play can boost your agg status aswell. ex. your stance, composure and the way you shoot.


here are more pb terms;

The Barrel Plug : Itís usually a plug that would go at the end of a markerís muzzle, which prevents the paintballs from leaving the gun in case of an accident.


Bounce : This is when a paintball hits you but bounces off of your body instead of exploding.


PBS : Usually referredto the amount of paintballs that can be shot form a marker in one second.



Bunker : Usually some type of object that paintballer would use to take cover to avoid being hit by the other team.



Cover Fire : This is when you wouid shoot at a bunker non-stop so a teammate can move forward towards that bunker where the other team is taking cover.



Dead Box : This is where each member of the team goes after being hit by the opposing teamís paintball paint. The Dead box is also usually where the team breaks at the beginning of the game.


Dead Man Walk : This is a paintballer who is actually walking towards the dead box acting like he is eliminated, but he really isnít. His intentions are to deceive the other team and to get to a nearby bunker or shoot at a target at some point on his walk towards the dead box.


Fanning : This is when instead of using your trigger finger you use your middle finger to pull the trigger.



FPO : You HAVE to buy your paint from the field. (Field Paint Only)


HPA : High Pressure Air


HPR : High Pressure Regulator



Mutual : This happens when to paintball players shoot each other at the same time and the referee canít really tell who was shot first so both players get eliminated at the same time.



One-for-One : This happens when a player gets eliminated for having committed a penalty along with another player from the same team who was close to him at the time of the penalty.



The Paint Check : This is when you want to ask the referee to check and find out if you have been hit by paint if you are not sure whether the paint broke or not. You can just yell paint check and point to the place where you want the referee to check.



Playing On : This happened when a player gets hit by a paintball and keeps on playing knowing that he was hit. The player is usually penalized for this.


The Primary Bunker : This is what they call the very first bunker that a player moves towards to take cover, right after the game starts.



Sandbagging : This is when a team enters to play a game at tournament that is of lower division than they should be playing at. Like pro paintballers playing at an amateur paintball match.



Shooting Hot : this happens when someone is shooting at a higher velocity than they are allowed to at that specific filed.



Two-for-One : This is when one paintballer along with two other players from the same team are eliminated from the game. Which would also follow a heavier penalty than the one for one.


Walking the trigger : Itís usually called when you are pulling the trigger both with your index and middle finger. This technique is usually the most accurate one when firing your marker.

"Acme" is Greek for (roughly translated) "the best." IIRC there were a lot of companies that adopted that name once telephone books became widespread, as everyone wanted his business at the front of the alphabetized list. Apparently, the name became so widely used that the term became very ironic. Hence the humor employed by the writers of Bugs Bunny, since all of the Acme Corp's products suck terribly, but to hilarious results (at least for my inner 8 year old, if not for Wiley E. Coyote, Esq.)

Excellent Necro Post BTW!
