I can so relate - it rained during the last scenario I played & I (like an idiot) decided to stay on the field, despite not being able to see much, if anything.
I finally stumbled upon one guy from the other team & proceeded to dump an entire hopper in his general direction - all 250 paintballs missed, but he called himself out anyway because his battery died.

hahaha, his battery died. Lol!
I was at the field Sunday, and I ALWAYS wear something over my eyes in the staging areas, because, you just never know... And sure enough, while I was talking to the guy that runs the field (who wasn't wearing eye protection as we were in a "safe" area). A lone paintball flew in and hit my bumper and covered my shoe in paint...
We were at least 75 feet from the closest field too.
You just never know where paint will go!

The worst is in a tournament too. Opponents hopper is just hanging out above the bunker and no matter what you do you can't hit it.
Yup, been there.

The rain story reminded me of a huge scenario back in the day, when pretty much one whole team went home after a downpour and my team was standing around the base trying to decide what to do. The ONE guy left on the other team decided to make a suicide run....and I got hit, first ball, right in the middle of my mask before 25 players turned around and lit him up.
The last time I played with my Tiberius pistol was with S.C.A.R. Born for Evil didn't see me hiding, he was wide open with his back to me, I aimed carefully from 8 yards away, I unloaded all 7 rounds (we have wound rules), and nothing. I think they all evaporated on the way.

I had the same experience at Hell Survivors a few years back. During the big game, myself and a small team had to rescue a player and his two escorts(my team captain). In order to facilitate his escape back out, another player and I made a last stand at a famous choke point.
With all modes of fire allowed there and my ego on unlimited ramping, I chopped a ball as soon as we got there, the only time it ever did.
Pod after pod got dumped into the horde, and it went EVERYWHERE. They must have thought the entire opposing side was lying in wait for them to come down the hill, and they seemed really disappointed when we gave up to the ref from lack of paint without taking a hit. Couldn't stop laughing.
It was glorious.

Years ago, I had one much like the second panel.
I had a TASO Spartan, a Nelson pump like the old Bushmasters. I'd done (or rather, overdone) some "trigger work" to it (hey, even Doc had to start somewhere ) to the point it basically had a hair trigger. You could slap the side of the gun and it'd probably go off.
We were playing a winter game, in about a foot of very fresh snow, over the top of about two feet of earlier snowfall. The trees and bushes and whatnot were basically opaque- there was enough snow on everything that a bush was basically a solid object.
We could only muster up a few players, maybe six, so we were doing a "capture the fort" game- three guys inside a cobbled-crap/plywood-scrap fort that wasn't very big. The other three- me included in this round- had to "assault" the fort and either eliminate the guys inside, or get close enough to just touch the fort.
Game had just started, one guy was circling around, while the third guy and I were moving pretty much straight in. We were coming up to a giant bush- again, heavily covered with snow, and only sneaking a little in case they'd left a guard outside the fort.
I was holding my gun at waist level, since I wasn't expecting to have to shoot yet... when it went off. My finger wasn't even on the trigger.
The ball went through the bush- somehow, I can only guess via Quantum teleportation- through one of the fort windows and gogged one of the guys inside.
It was almost exactly like the cartoon: Pop! Whap! "Oh son of a-! I'm out!"
Very first shot in the game, and not only was I not even aiming, I hadn't even meant to fire, and would have bet twenty bucks that there was no way for a ball to even get through all that brush.
I could have gotten away with calling it skill, too, if the other guy with me hadn't seen me looking down at my gun in utter disbelief.
