Other Fields
in the Area:
Commando - More "woodsy". Owner not as good a guy.
Review: Me and a friend played with six other walk-ons, so teams were four on four.

Pros:

Basic rentals are Tippman 98Cs. He also rents a bazooka, mines, grenades, and a Spyder MR1.

The owner, Steve was a really nice guy who helped me out immensely when my marker was having problems.

Lots of different fields with good variety. The "Blackhawk Down" field was neat. There's a big fortress, and he's continuing to add to the facility.

He's put a lot of work into the place, and uses his imagination to create scenarios. He has a mock "nuclear bomb" that you need to defuse in one scenario, and a "communications uplink" that you have to blow up in another scenario.

Right next door there's a place with motocross, go-karts, off-road go-karts, mini go-karts for the little ones, and mini-putt. If you've got a family and you need something for the wife and kids to do while you're playing paintball, this is a perfect place to play.

There's a chipwagon on-site for lunch-time.

Drinking water was provided in the "Hospitals" (dead zones), which was very welcome because it was damned hot that day.

He has a funnel for loading your hopper at the staging area, which was a nice touch.

Small pro-shop on-site.

Cons:

A case of paint was C$120.

Fields were kinda small, so games were de-facto speedball games. Short games + more paint shot = owner makes more money.

The refs coulda been more organized. We sat around way too long between games. We arrived at 9 am. We didn't start playing until 11. There was an hour break for lunch. It was frustrating.

Neutral (depending on your point of view):

Personally, I like a facilitity that's more "woodsy". The brush was cut back so much at Tactik that there were very few places to hide and there were almost no shadows. Camoflage is pretty much useless except on a couple of the fields. Stealth and strategy play very little part of the game. Starting points for the teams were very close to each other, in my humble opinion.

Playing four-on-four made the games go really quick. I think it would be a lot better if you went with a big group.

I played lousy, but that's not really the field's fault. Hehe.
