None. I highly doubt any would come close to this one...
Let me start by saying my group and I drove a total of 9 hours just to play at this field...
It was absolutely worth it! The field far surpassed my already high expectations!
For only $90/player:
-4 hours of play
The MILSIG is an incredible marker and the staff keep them in top notch condition. We were hoping to get the mag-fed version but unfortunately the abuse to the mag system from regular renters made them unavailable to most of my group. (They still provided us with two functional mag-fed markers.) The tactical vest is comfortable and breathable and does a great job of carrying all you need on the field. I believe you can request to use the EYE Tactical Mask with helmet but apparently those fog-up too often. We were given some JT masks with thermal lenses and they worked flawlessly. You can also rent a pistol for an extra $20 however they happened to be out of 12gr CO2 cartridges when we went so I can't say much about the pistols. Additional equipment for rental includes flashlights, red dot sights, and knee pads.
If you're familiar with the cost of playing paintball, you'll know that $90 for rental and unlimited air and paint is a real steal! The field uses V1's and provide HPA (and CO2?). Something you must know before playing is that you can only bring a maximum of 135 rounds onto the field. This makes for a far more tactical game where you're conserving your ammo and placing shots that count.
I walked with my jaw to the ground as we were given a tour of the field. This place is every scenario/milsim player's dream! CQB Tactical Paintball has constructed an intricate multi-level playground with catwalks, ladders, stairs, sniper posts... Most windows feature sliding panes so you can stick just your barrel out to engage targets stealthily. You can kick open doors! One of my favourite features was the ability to create your own cover. You can find miscellaneous items around the field (ie. tires, plywood, car doors, chairs, tables...) and use them as a shield or as fortification for the position you're holding. Another awesome feature is the lighting which can be dimmed to complete darkness. The staff were constantly asking us what lighting setting we preferred for the next game. They have fog machines and strobe lights to add to the confusion. There are CCTV cameras around the field and the live footage of the on-going game is projected on a wall in the briefing room.
I'll conclude with something that struck me the most: the OUTSTANDING STAFF. They were all down-to-earth, friendly, helpful, and fun (painful) to play with! The owners and refs were extremely accommodating to my group's requests. They kept every game fun and safe. Between games they made sure everyone was refilled on ammo and air and they even provided us with snacks!
Awesome rental gear + incredible prices + kick butt facility + staff that make sure you have fun = a unique paintball field and paintball experience that will draw you back for more and more!
I plan on going often in the near future.
PS. Thanks again Will. (Patrick)
