    Thoughts on paintball video games like 2dpaintball?

    I grew up playing Greg Hastings Paintball on XBOX. Are there any games worth playing in 2020 for days when I can’t get out to the actual field? Someone suggested 2Dpaintball and I’ve been playing it a bit—really having a blast but just curious if there are any other titles that capture the feel of speed/woods ball worth checking out.

      My brother just started playing a game that he says feels a lot like paintball with the use of bunkers and whatnot. I'll double-check the name of it and come back.

        Digital Paintball Redux is free on Steam (if you own Half Life 1 as a base to mod) and is pretty realistic with use of cover and tactics. Check it out.

        Escape from Tarkov is the game I was thinking of. It's not paintball related, but from what I hear (I haven't played it) the use of cover and limited gear has a paintball-y feel to it.

          The new big map mode in COD Warzone plays like a big game kind of. I find it a lot of fun. Hope they keep the mode. I play it a lot like I play paintball. Slide into up front cover using cover to block shots. Hold lanes and stuff. It actually plays well.

          I've always said that Gears of War was one of the best paintball games ever! LOL

            I use to play the first one a lot. That was a good game.

              I believe recroom has a paintball game, best played in vr but I think you can play without.

              I don't think I would touch a paintball game, rather just play a shooter

                I find pubg especially squads has a very big game feel to it. Use of communication, sound cues etc. I've played with a few of my local PB friends and it really helps communication both in game and on the field.

                    Digital Paint: Paintball 2 is one I played a bunch years ago, and my 13 yo still does. Has old-school markers as the weapons. Physics aren’t always totally realistic, depending on which room/server one uses, (I wish I could jump that high!) but decent play. Built on the Quake engine, and still seems to have a following. (European especially)

                        Don't know why, but getting 1-shot in a video game hurts more than getting shot out in real life. I spend way more time playing video games relative to how often i play paintball, so maybe there's some subconscious disconnect I need in order to enjoy both hobbies for completely different reasons.
