REVIEW


Tempe Paintball Urban Combat Experience

They have done an appropriate job of defining the field and what it offers in the name. Its not “Speedball” or “Hyperball” or “AireBall” and if that’s your game without exception, they tell you upfront; this is not your field. Or is it?

The owners will be the first to explain that while the field was designed around the Tactical Urban Combat style of play, the greatest number of players that play their field do not know or understand that style of play. The result, you end up with 90% of the games/events at the location being less “Type of Play” structured and better explained as a “skill building” field. With that in mind, it is one of the best places for “Paintball Virgins” and “Newbies” to begin learning the sport under the watchful eye of the well trained and overtly safety minded staff and owners.

The field is tactically tight and this works to the advantage of new players in that there is no means to get lost or left out of the play when “Game On” is called. The setting is modeled after a jungle supply depot or Para military warehouse in some covert drop zone. Several movable outbuildings and an ever-changing myriad of containers and barrels staged and ready to support the troops on the front lines surround a “hard” central office structure. What this means for game play is that you have to move and pick targets and find cover as you move. Bunker in and there are 3-4 ways to assault your position and overrun it. There are no lanes to “hose” so the experience quickly exposes your actual skill and ability over just having a high ROF marker and a ramping board. The field requires you to learn to play tight and develop your snap shooting skills as well as targeted shooting while on the move. All the best skills for new players to develop to be competitive in any of the other styles of paintball play.

New players will find the staff extremely attentive and helpful both on and off the arena floor. On the field, REF staffing is matched to the size of the parties playing at that time. Games will always have at least two REF’s and as many as five for the high intensity or league games. The “Family Friendly” environment flows from the owners having families/children of their own who may be onsite on any given day. Manners, sportsmanship, courtesy and enforced rules against “Offensive Language” are as important in the safety briefing as the rules on safe paintball play. Four huge flat screens allow non-players, moms and dads to monitor the activity on the field during each game from the comfort of the air-conditioned staging area. A lowered velocity standard (220 fps maximum), semi-auto only markers (No full auto or electronic ramping allowed), ROF (Rate of Fire) capped at 15bps and stringent rules on mandatory surrender distances and overshooting take the tight field design into account to assure players have a safe and enjoyable experience.

The rental markers (guns) offered are the Kingman/Spyder MR-1 semi-auto markers on CO2. You can get your rental with the tactical shoulder stock or without depending on your comfort or style. Hoppers are standard 140rd gravity feed and the base rental package comes with 100 paintball rounds. Standard single lens masks as well as a wide range of protective gear from gloves to chest and neck protectors as well as pods and pod harnesses are all included in the rental package. Service on the rental gear is excellent and the staff focuses on getting players as much field time as possible so you will never be left standing at the equipment room waiting for your rental gear to be repaired. If your out of air or experience an issue, they put another marker in your hand and get you back on the field. If you have your own gear, they can do CO2 fills and HPA fills to 3000psi.

The onsite pro shop is very limited and focus’s on gear and markers in their target market, Tactical/Mil-Sim. The airsmithing abilities are also extremely limited though the staff is always willing to help any and every player as much as they are equipped to. The staging area also has a food service area designed in offering drinks, pizza and other prepared, heat and eat items as well as a well stocked vending area for when the counter is not open. They also offer lockers, available for rent, to keep purses and other valuables secure and out of sight

Tempe Paintball Urban Combat Experience is just that, an experience worthy any player of any skill level. New players can learn/grow their skill in a safe and challenging environment while experienced players have the ability to hone often forgotten skill of making the one shot count. Tempe Paintball does not offer “everything to every player” and to their credit, they do not try. What they do offer is one of the best environments for new players to safely learn to love the sport.

About the Reviewer:
I have tried to make this an objective review. I am not on the staff of Tempe Paintball but it has become my "field of first choice" and I help out there whenever I have the time. I have experienced nearly every way to play paintball in the 24+ years I have been playing and played all over the U.S.. As with all reviews, the reviewer and their interest should be known and considered.
