Re: creation of new techniques
I have actually been able to see the paintballs coming at me from a few yards out, I can see their arch, but there has never been a time where I have been able to doge a paintball. I have however been able to hear the muzzle noise and hit the dirt to dodge the paint ball. But that has always been while moving already low and quick angle changes making tracking harder.
The closest I have ever been shot with a piantball gun has been about 3 feet, it broke the skin and left a horrible bruise on my back for about 2 months. I do not suggest using a paintball gun.
