Just want o put in a few words for Predator. I enjoy playing here. The atmosphere is unlike other fields I've been to. There is a sense of professionalism that puts people in a good mood. Predator fosters sportsmanship. There is no side coaching, no cheating. No arguing over hits (typically). The refs are great and primarily concerned about safety and fairness. No refs under the age of 18.
Field is slightly run down, but is by no means a bad place to play. The speedball fields are always well-maintained, with the woods receiving a little less attention. Prices are fair in the shop. Rules are all normal, except an above-average velocity of 285 fps and no bunker tags.
I've been playing out here a while and noticed something I would like to point out. People that come through here play paintball, have fun, and learn a thing or two. People that continue to come out here become amazing players. Whether you're a woodsballer or speedballer, the skills learned are unbeatable. It's the atmosphere at Predator that's unique. You can't find that at every field, but when you do, you've hit the jackpot.
Just enjoyed the atmosphere and staff. All I can say, it is a lot better then it use to be. No little annoying kids trying to tell you what to do!.
Safety is an big issue, as any field should be. All they ask for you to keep your mask on at all times while on the fields. And if the refs catch them off, man do they jump on you.
The woods area is a little crazy! But fun!. The urban city is nice. Could be bigger, but playable.
RM, PBC, and a few others.
honestly, the guys over at predator will help you out. regardless of the issue. i had a problem with my gun not working right, they helped me and told me how to keep it from happening again.
The awesome thing about predator paintball is that its decently affordable. they do allow you to bring your own paintballs, which for people like me, who have all their own stuff. they cant afford to pay 100 bucks a day on paintball. I read back on previous reveiws and i dont think i recall seeing a young ref or staff member at all? maybe their staff changed or something. everyone there was older, i would say 25 to 30.

Paintball Central Greensboro, pbc is a lot better always has refs etc.
Directions to the Field:
look on their web page
Before we go my friend was supposed to set up party plans at the place, well he never "Confirmed it" so the guy at least let us play until 2:00 when we got there at 11:20, because some other group was coming. When I went there I wasn't sure if it was still in working order or not. It's down a dirt driveway and it's a trailer. So we go to pay and that works okay buts its very slow. However there are no refs, it was crazy. So we start off playing at The Village, its the best thing at this place, no lie. That game goes great. Then we play at attack and defend its terrible. The courses are in rough shape. The prices there are great though!, its $15 for all day play and to bring your own paint (which is wonderful). There pro shop was very affordable, my friend bought a empire reloaded B for $25 less than on the internet. Overall I would go again, its just not the best, so don't hope for the best.

look for corn...it seems every field i've been to is surrouned by corn except for the one on fort bragg
When we got to this field we actually thought the place had been closed down. the two speedball fields were packed up and there was one other car. Also, The guy working there when we got there was a dick to say the least. There wasnt a single ref until about 1 or 2 in the afternoon one of the players took over the job. The chrono also wasn't working so peoples guns were shooting hot, including mine cause it was new.
Paint Was EXTREMELY expensive but you can bring your own paint so i recommend you do that. Also the two woodsball fields were getting kind of run down, however, the village field was awesome. The field boundries were also not very well established because countless tiems there would be people going out of the fird and coming bac in behind the lines of the opposing team. The safety nets.......sucked. I had a ball break on me when i was out of the field changing my stock.
HOWEVER, I think i went there on a bad day becuase from what i heard it was very unusual for the chrono to not be working, the refs to not be there and for the guy to be working. As it worked out though the people were all fair and called their outs and made it fun. The morning was slow but as the day went on plenty of people showed up and the speedball course was set up by the time we left. also, as run down as the woodsball courses were they were still fun. The bring your own paint thing is also cool becuase i was the only one using pink fill so i could see who i got....also made it fun painting all the bunkers bright pink.
Give this field a try. I thought it was worth going to and its not like your forced to go there from now on
The speedball field is nice, but the other fields are old, out dated, and decaying. I would only suggest going to this field if your objective is SPEEDBALL. The majority of the refs are annoying kids especially this one named jacob who is a total ass, short, and fat. The owner is not very nice to anyone but I think it is his wife who works there as well and she is very nice. In other words, the field is run poorly. -- For a while I only played here so I thought it was a nice field, but now I have discovered what a difference good ownership, adult and nice younger refs can make, as well as upkeep.
To sum it up, if you are just looking to test the sport you might want to go here if its your only option or if you are a veteran speedballer.

Its a great place to play they have a huge woodball course two speedball places and the willage. The village is my personal favorite to play its fun and great. The attack and defend field is good a little small but good. The only problem i see is that if you rent a gun you have to use there paint but they do use hpa in there rental markers which is nice.
well i havent played anywhere else locally ( i live in Chapel Hill, but there is triangle and gotcha
Directions to the Field:
its kinda out there. just go to predatorpaintball.org for the directions.
I really like this field. The ref's are awesome and everyone is nice to you, even if your new to paintball. Most of the refs are cool, except this retarded kid named Jacob. The owner's son ( I think his name is Tony) is definetely one of the coolest people there. He let me use his DM4 (no, not the sanded down one that stupid jacob used), when my gun wasn't working. He is also really good with guns, so if you have a problem, go to him. The ref's are just like you and me, so they're fun to hang out with and talk to. They will sometimes give you advice if you are newer. The only bad thing is that its kinda far away, so good luck finding a ride. And yes, the lady is in fact a slimy rat.
This was a great place, people and everyone were friendly. The proshop is adequate just a bit small. The prices for the recball is 75 and for there tourney grade paint is 95 I believe. I bought the recball and it sucked try bringing your own, you'll have to pay a fee but it's worth it. They have 2 speedball fields set up out front. Both field are well maintained and don't have any rocks. They also have a field called the village which is ok if you like that kind of play. There were some woods fields out back that some group was playing on too. I found out that saturday is when the rec players play and sunday is when the tourney players play just so you know.
Xtremist - Lewisville, NC (No comparison. Xtremist is horrible and doesn't exist anymore)
NC Tactical - Lewisville, NC (Awesome field.)
I just moved to the Raleigh area last weekend, so I have no experience with other local fields.
Directions to the Field:
Just north of Hillsborough.
Pros: Predator seemed to be fairly established, which means popularity, customer loyalty, and success. The woods field has a lot of varied terrain that made firefights quite interesting. The trees are big enough to provide great cover and close enough together to make movement easy. Underbrush is thin in a lot of areas, making for great visibility. There is a fort for Attack-N-Defend games. The nets around the two speedball fields and the air bunkers were well-maintained.
Cons: Speedball seemed to be the main focus at the field, even though there was a great woods area to play in. The woods field seemed forgotten and rundown, the fort was a mess and falling apart. There were two or three refs and even though they were nice and had good attitudes, they seemed more interested in hanging out with their speedball buddies and reffing speedball games than running the whole field. The refs would only come out into the woods if it was a small, compact game being played near the staging area. A large walk-on group came out about mid-day and were pretty much left to their own devices.
Neutral: The staff at the front counter were nice enough, but seemed indifferent to me. The pro-shop is a converted double-wide and they have fill stations, vending machines, hot dogs, drinks, and sales inside. Papa John's Pizza delivers to the field. The staging area is half covered, and there is plenty of seating, but it was very messy. The trashcans smelled and a lot of the tables were covered in wet paint and dead bugs.
Overall: As with any field, the attendance is what makes or breaks a day of fun. That field has a lot of promise if a lot of people show up to play. Otherwise, you just sit around and watch speedball games or have 3v3 games out in the woods. The terrain in the woods really made playing enjoyable, so I plan on going back.
