old E-JAMs (indoor), Skirmish, ABC Paintball, Cousins
I've also played at NVP in Rochester NY and Fox 4 in Upton MA
Directions to the Field:
Hardest part to locating the field is finding the turn-off on Macopin road. Look for a giant NewBreed Paintball sign, or a similar sized yellow/orange sign for the camp that's in the same area (it should be a gated entrance/exit, you'll know it when you see it)
It's important to note that there are indeed 8 fields at Newbreed Paintball; 4 main fields that are played constantly, and 4 less popular fields that aren't requested as often (too long of a walk maybe?)
Main Fields of Play: Junkyard, Castle, Crossfire, X-Ball (currently being rebuilt from the ground up. small CQB field put up temporarily) Lesser known Fields: D-Day, Log Jam, Big Woods, Skull Mountain
Let it be noted that every time I've been to NewBreed Paintball, I've been informed of safety protocalls; IE when to have my mask or barrel bag on. I do notice however, that a lot of new players are VERY quick to forget these lessons after playing a round of Junkyard. Safety directions are posted all over the fields; refs and regular players usually remind new players to follow the rules however some people just never learn. That's not something that can be pinned on the field, but the sport as a whole. If you're considering picking up the sport of paintball, be sure to know when you should have your mask on!
You get the best deal on everything, hands down. Paint is fairly cheap and getting cheaper, all day air is convenient, and CO2 fills are a minimal charge. Also note: If the manager gets a discount on a product, he's always sure to give you the best deal allowable by the manufactures....don't ask him for a discount, he's already giving you tons of them.
Nothing to brag about, however they're able and willing to fix just about anything. If you manage to break your gear towards the end of the day however, your best bet is to bring it into the store (in Fair Lawn) ASAP.
A lot can be said about a field by simply looking at the people who regularly play there. You'll know who the regulars are when you see them at New Breed. They're always willing to stop and help you out if you need anything......they're also the kind to draw a crowd. One more thing can be implied by looking at the players on the field; Some of the regular players work at New Breed! This may sound surprising, but I've always felt that if ones employees come their own field to play, it's a good sign that you're doing it right.
The staff are all paintball players themselves, and while they may each express their own opinions on marker setups, they tend to more readily give out better information than the staff at other fields.
All food on site can be found at the Snack Shack just outside of the Proshop. From what I gather, the Snack Shack is un-related to the field itself (separate vendors?)
NewBreed Paintball has something to offer for first time players and experienced tournament veterans alike. Although the tourney players don't have a familiar X-Ball field to play on at the moment, they have found a new home in the Junkyard.
