Paintball leads to bad habits. Its usefulness is EXTRAORDINARILY limited. The guns aren't very accurate and the projectiles don't have very much range. A cardboard box is hard cover to a lot of players. Engagement distances are CQB close, not the 100 to 1000 yards I prefer. Maybe in thick brush where visibility is only 30 feet or in buildings it is useful.
