Review: When I arrived at Cobra Command, my friend and I were immediately taken care of, although it was fairly confusing. After a bit, we were taken to the back and I was given a Tippmann Pro-Lite as a rental.

This marker proved to be problematic throughout the day. It rarely fired only one shot per pull of the trigger, and the velocity was extremely inconsistant. Sometimes I'd shoot and the ball would go 45 feet, and without changing my aiming point, the next ball (or group of balls) would only go 10 feet.

One of the refs was 12, the others were 14 and 17.

The first game we played was a very fun objective game, where the armbands had to take a "case" to a car at the end of the field.

As I had been given no instruction on how to use the rental marker, I never got off a shot. I was soon eliminated.

The next 4 or 5 games were all elimination games in the village. (technically, they were "capture the bacon" style games, but no one actually tried to do that).

The last game was a Murder/Surrender or Die, where the only way to get out was to surrender or run out of paint/air.

During this round, my rental never worked correctly. Before this game, I had gone for a new tank of air. According to the others at the field, I had received a near-empty tank, as the rental always fired extremely fast bursts that rarely went more than 10 feet.

Because of these difficulties, I called myself out on the first hit, which was also a bounce.

All in all, I had a good time, even though my marker never worked correctly. I'd give this field a 8/10, just because the rental was very, very bad, and it seemed disorganized.

I still don't really know what it feels like to get hit, as all the times I called myself out were on bounces, except for the first hit on my mask, and I understand bounces hurt much less. :)

Actually it hurts less when it does break on you
