Other Fields
in the Area:
Xtopia Paintball-Great variety of fields. 1 Airball Field, 1 Hyperball Field, and 1 Recreational Field that was nicely designed for those new to the sport of paintball. The Hyperball Field and Airball Field are all grass. The field is BYOP or buy paint at the field where there is a wide variety to choose from, from regular field paint all the way up to tournament grade paint. They supply both CO2 as well as 3000 and 4500 fills. They are the only field in the city where I can get a complete 4500 fill. The staff at Xtiopia is very friendly and courteous. I would definitely suggest that anyone who hasn't played at Xtopia to stop by sometime and check it out. They even have group parties. I also believe they have some of the top teams and players playing there on the weekends. That is very impressive in my book. The staff at this field is also experienced tournament players. I have had many questions answered right away by many of the staff and players here. Also marker questions or help is available.

Biggs Field Paintball- This is home to the largest paintball field in El Paso. I would have to say this is the only field in El Paso that is about the size of a 10 man field. The field is mainly for military and their family and friends. However guests are welcomed. Here they only fill CO2. That is the only area I see they need to improve. They have a young staff which is doing a good job running that field. Here it is also BYOP or buy paint there at the field.

Ricky's Paintball- Here they have a wildly shaped recball field and a small 3 man field. I have been there on only two ocassions. It is one of the more expensive fields in the area. I don't play here often due to the high prices. They do fill both AIR as well as CO2 here. It is also BYOP or buy paint at the field, except here, you must pay extra to bring your own paint.
Review: Winkey Doodles- The last time I played here they had 3 fields and one abandoned barn used as a maze style course. The largest of the fields is mainly made up of road signs and barrels. The field is not mirrored well at all. In my honest opinion, it is made using too many different bunkers. The second field is made using black trash can or barrel style bunkers. This field is mirrored unlike the big field. The only problem I saw here was the field was not designed well at all. There are no real shooting lanes. The field is also very narrow. The third field is made of mainly spools, road signs, and bails of hay. This field is also fairly mirrored. The field is at an incline, which leaves one side higher than the other. It is also very deep sand on this field. It feels as though you are playing beach volleyball. I would never play the barn course due to it being very dark and very close quarters. Someone might get hurt due to the low visibility and closeness of the players. The reffing staff is very young. I have witnessed them pulling players out of a game for calling a paintcheck on a player. There was also alot of favortism going on. If you were a tournament style player with an electronic marker you were not welcome there. The times that I have played there, that is the vibe that was perceived. I have seen too many altercations at this field during tournaments between referees and team captains. I definitely believe they need to have a better reffing staff for tournaments held here. A older reffing staff might also help out the problem. This field is also in a isolated part of the city. Very hard to locate if unfamiliar to the area. Unless you also want to play in sandbox, I would not recommend this field.

I would have to give this field a 3, due to the fact that is a little bit better than the worst field that I have ever played but not as average as an average type field I have played.
