I've played at skirmish, All American, Three Brothers, and the 68 caliber fields and this is by far my favorite one.
Directions to the Field:
It's a big warehouse building that used to be a trucking company...park in the lot and go into the door in the corner by the sign.
Okay, so I saw a new field that is only about 30 minutes away from me and I nearly peed myself with excitement. I have traveled a lot and played on teams just so I could get some decent action without having to pay too much. Now that this place is close to me though, I feel like I'll never have to travel again.
They only have one course at this time, but apparently they will be taking over the entire 4 floors of the building to expand and will also be moving into the metal warehouse attached to the building. The first thing you'll notice is that since it's indoors, this place can be open all year long. That's a great thing considering all other fields shut down in the winter here...In PA it's about 3 months of summer then all winter so an indoor field is a godsend. The owners are a father and son team named Roger and Roger...easy enough, and they are really awesome guys. They will help you out with anything and really keep an eye on the games to make sure everyone is having fun. They will throw you some extra paint if you run out, and their buddy Jim that runs Eden's Edge paintball will help you out if your gun isn't working. Jim is certified by Smart Parts and can pretty much fix anything. I highly recommend his shop as well.
The course is set up in the basement of the building. It is always nice and cool down there so you don't have to worry about being toasted while playing. It is a mix of urban assault type bunkers. There are about 5 rooms down there and it is always some really fun close quarters combat. They have barrels, tires, palettes and other junk you would expect in an urban setup. They have a safe zone for you to prep before playing and there is enough table space to do some work in between games. The basement is nice and dark so it adds to the intense environment. There are blue, red, and black lights in there allowing you to see just fine while still maintaining the creepiness of the place.
The only down side that I have found is that they can't fill HPA there. That's alright though considering Eden's Edge isn't too far away and those guys are CHEAP to fill air there. If you only have one HPA tank make sure to take some CO2 for backup. I have 3 hpa tanks though so it really wasn't a problem for me.
They charge 15 bucks for the field fee which lets you play all day. Paint is 85 bucks for a case or 6 bucks per 100 count. Before people start complaining about price, remember that they are playing with Nightmare paint. It flies true, isn't dimpled, and won't break in your barrel which really makes it better off for me. If you want to buy a case, you can bring it back and reuse it. That's what I'm going to do on my next trip in this weekend seeing as it will be a lot cheaper in the long run. Nightmare paint is usually about 50-60 bucks for a case so I can't fault them for charging 85 especially when they are a new business trying to get set up. They have plans of expanding out so I feel like paying a little more is an investment in keeping an awesome paintball field in an area where there are no fields.
I love this place though...it has become my new favorite and the fact that they will be changing the field monthly to keep play fresh is a big plus when I'm used to fields that have been the same for years. I am looking forward to where these guys will go, and be there on a saturday...you'll probably see me.

Lots of stuff has changed at the warzone since you have been there and its all for the good too. Since you have made the post they have gotten a compressor to fill HPA tanks. Also, there are now regular tournaments at the Warzone! There are currently 14 teams at the warzone and usually a huge tournament about every 3 months. If you havent heard about them there are still openings on multiple teams and its always great competition. Also they have a new tech Matt from 68 caliber paintball in hollidaysburg who is probably the best around and can help you with anything paintball related. They also just recently upgraded the rental arsenal to 40 guns ranging from piranahs to bts to tippmans to spiders to the brand new TM15.
