Have you ever heard of Low Impact Paintball? Well, we ventured to Defcon Paintball here in Toronto to experience their Low Impact Paintball recently.
I am not sure I have ever shared how competitive my family is, well now you know, we are a rowdy and competitive bunch!
Defcon Paintball has two convenient locations in Toronto and Mississauga.
They are ranked highest in customer satisfaction with competitive rates to give you the best value for your dollar!
The fields at Defcon span over 40,000 sq-ft, executed by top set designers in the industry.
I especially love that they provide top-of-the-line equipment, I only jammed my gun once and it was totally my own fault.
Defcon also has an amazing Pro-Shop filled with all the latest gear for beginners to seasoned pros.
If you are looking for an amazing time, Defcon is it! They are one of the fastest growing paintball facilities in the Greater Toronto Area for a reason.
Low Impact Paintball
Low impact paintball, also known as microball, uses a smaller .50 caliber paintball and is suitable for players for ages 8+.
The smaller paintball allows for a more satisfying game experience and appeals to a broader range of participants without sacrificing the thrill and excitement!
Defcon’s low impact paintball option appeals to the young, the new, families, parties and corporate events.
Low impact paintball at Defcon is exclusively available with an advance reservation.
If you have a group of 15+ people you will have private field access.
That means you get the course just to yourself for you and your group – perfect for birthday parties!
Our Competitive Nature Comes Out To Play
A few weeks ago my family all met up at Defcon Paintball in Toronto for a friendly (read competitive) game of low impact paintball.
Upon arriving the manager Alex took us through the mandatory safety course, rules and then got us our gear.
The ref took us through games such as capture the flag, attack and defend and my personal favourite, spouse vs spouse (with kids on each team).
There is nothing like taking out some pent-up frustration on your spouse out on the paintball field!
The adults did not show mercy on the kids or Steve, poor guy had his hands up more than anyone else.
If you can’t tell by the picture below, my family holds nothing back.
While I am behind the camera for this photo, make no mistakes, I totally had my game face on!
Steve is pretty confident in this photo (front left), although the whole game he was annihilated.
Out of our family, the only ones who have been paintballing before was my brother, sister and myself.
We have done regular paintball in the past, but this was our first time experiencing low impact paintball!
The rest of the fam jam were paintball newbies and although I told Steve it was low impact, he layered on the clothes thinking it would hurt.
Does It Hurt?
I wore a thin pair of leggings and a sweater under my jumpsuit so I could feel the “pain” of being hit.
Well, I only got shot 3 times the whole night, told you I am competitive!
Right at the end, it was a standoff between my brother and me, the only two left with ammo and both of us are ruthless.
With guns blazing, we literally charged at each other and he shot me twice – once in each thigh. Don’t worry, I got him a few times too!
It did not hurt at all, it more or less felt like someone flicked my leg with their fingers.
I had no bruising from being shot in the days that followed either.
When I asked the kids if it hurt when they got shot they all said no!
Here is the aftermath!
We were clearly all flushed and sweaty from a good hour or so of intense competition!
My family can’t wait to go back, my sister and her fiancé are even considering having a joint bachelor/bachelorette party there!
All of the kids also enjoyed it and have been asking when we will be planning our next family paintball night.
