Gateway Paintball: I like it a little more, but not by much
Review: I have been to Bushwackers about four times in the last couple months. Before I had only been to Gateway, so at first I didn't like it as much. However, as I began to play there more, I appreciated the place more.

Field Types: This is mostly a woodsball field, but there are two that are more centered on man-made (wooden) structures [speedball, and Radical Town]. There are usually five fields to play on, and most are hilly.

Speedball- I'm not sure why they call this field Speedball, as it is not really speedball, but the games played on this field are usually fast. It is not symmetrical, but I don't really think that it is one sided, but I do think that if there is a team of mostly vets facing newbies, this field amplifies the advantage/disadvantage.

Two Towers-The first time I played on this field, I thought it was very one sided, but as I played on it more, I think it is more equal. The Creek is a fun flanking tool, and can be very effective if used correctly. Around the edges of the field are thick brush, so if you want, you can crawl through that and flank as well. CTF is sometimes played on this field.

King of the Hill-This is a great objective woodsball field. The defending team has one flagbase (where you start), and the offending team has two. The offending team has to stand on the top of the hill for two seconds to win. This field's terrain is very hilly, so it is fun to crawl and try to get close to the hill. The hill has a horse shoe-shaped berm facing the rest of the field, so there is a blind spot on the face of the hill, great to crawl up and surprise the enemy.

Radical Town- This field seems pretty unique, because of the amount of structures that are built upon it. These structures provide great defensive positions and an easy way to run around without being seen. This field can also handle probably 40 people OK, which is good on those huge open play days.

Ho Chi Min- This field is very woodsball, and it features an exposed rockline along one side and a hilly boundary on the other. This field can also handle a lot of people well. If you get in the right position, you can pick off many an unlucky enemy. This field is all about position, and that's what decides the game. As well as deathmatch, they also play "President" (aka VIP) on this field.

Safety- This should always be a big thing at any field, and it is here. Every few games, all of the non-rental guns are required to chrono before the game. The Refs will make sure you keep your mask on, and so will the other players. Barrel blocking devices are always enforced off of the fields.

Refs- The refs are always safe, and they usually warn other players when someone is coming out so they don't get shot. They are nice and helpful.

Other staff- Scott is usually in charge of rentals and air fills, and is very helpful in helping you. He will usually clean your gun if he's not busy.

Restroom- There is a restroom, not a porta-potty (Gateway, cough cough), but it is not the best. It does have hot water.

Other Amenities- You can buy cold drinks for reasonable prices and you can also order Domino's Pizza if you like. The "pro shop" is not actually a pro shop, but you con buy a few random things there. They have Big Boy paint grenades for $8.

Rentals- Having never used their rentals, I can't say much, but they did recently get Proto Switch EL masks, which are nice (I have a FS- very nice). They have Pro-Carbines, BT-4s and a few PMI Piranhas. You can also get an Automag for a higher price.

If you are a woodsball player, check out this field. It doesn't have that much variety, but many will like what they have.
