Low Impact paintball is a sport in which players shoot small rubbery spheres at one another called (you guessed it) paintballs. Paintballs when stuck, breaks and leaves a paint residue. In turn, when hit with a paintball there is proof that a player has been hit/shot. Like normal paintball, Low Impact paintball both shoot at the same speeds. However unlike normal paintballs which are 0.68 caliber, Low Impact paintballs are shot with 0.50 caliber sized paintballs. For this reason, Low Impact paintball hurts a bit less than normal paintball.
When Low Impact paintball players are still required to wear a full frontal face mask in order to protect from serious injury. Please NOTE: In addition to a splatter mark it is common for Low Impact paintballs to leave small penny-sized bruise and/or welt on the skin once shot.
