Review: All i have to say is this field is amazing! It has great fields and great people and no matter how many times you go you will never get bored. It sells paint for a fair price and unlike other places the rental gun is actually really pretty good. Its also a great place to meet new people believe me just hanging out in the dead zone is part of the fun being there. Also everyone knows theres stuff about paintball its not just guys renting just for fun who dont know a thing about paintball. It doesn't matter if you bushball or speedball its still fun and they have lots of tournments and scenarios.

This is where my first time paintballing was and i hope everyone tries it i'd say this is the best paintball facility in canada.

Cameron's Speedway: It's a good field, the first outdoor field I ever played at, but I haven't been there in a year or two and I've heard it's changed SO much since then- for the better.
Review: Well, this might be a little long for a review but hang in there. I'm going to start off with safety and say that it is pretty relaxed there, meaning you are pretty much responsible for your own safety. Being fair, I have to say the refs will obviously do their best to keep everyone safe and following the rules but because it's such a huge facility, they simply cannot enforce everyone all the time. Also, there are no speed checks for the guns so people could be shooting at 250fps and others could be shooting 400fps and no one knows which I think is totally unacceptable and potentially dangerous. The facility is on a huge chunk of farm land so there is a good bit of walking to do from the field to the shop but not too much to make it a pain, just slightly annoying (but people these days need to stop being lazy so maybe it's a good thing lol) and from field to field the walking isn't bad. There are MANY fields so there isn't any waiting for a field to open up. Walk-ons are always welcome and the guys there are all pretty cool and helpful. The fields I played on are: 1. The main forest field which has houses, bunkers, a car, fox holes, etc. It's a great field and lots of fun to use. 2. There are two hills at opposing ends of the short field and between them in the valley and sides of the hill are bunkers, long grass and other sorts of stuff. There are two sides which each have their advantages and disadvantages, and the hill-tops are awesome with good cover although they are where you are most likely to get hit because people always volley them with paintballs. There is a bit of a stream that runs along side this course and through some of the other fields which makes for a cool obstacle. 3. At the village there are a bunch of houses at the beginning and from there on it's nothing but vegitation with trees, a creek, and loads of really tall grass, all of which is great for hiding in and at the end of the field there is a metal fort that can be used as a base. Those are all the fields I played on but there are many more and I had a great time. Prices there are pretty good and average. $25 for the infantry package which is the cheapest one you can go with but it's not bad and comes with all the usual stuff like mask, hopper, 100 paintballs, Co2, and Spyder MR1. Extra paint prices are pretty much the same as everywhere else: $8 for 100 pbs, $35 for 500 pbs, $120 for 2000 pbs. Overalls are $5 and grenades $8ea. The pro-shop didn't have a lot to offer when I went there but the guy there told me that's because they are expanding the shop to double it's size so they had to move a lot of the stuff (I can't wait to see the new shop, he said it should be done in about a month). Well that's all I have to say about Soldiers Of Fortune Paintball, I recommend you check it out, it's a great place with great people so there is no way you could have a bad time. Cheers.

Review: This was the field I was born at... well, it was the first field I played at.

My review is going to be as unbiased as possible:

Let me start by commenting on the field layout, this is an amazing field with a lot of different staging and playing fields available. I believe they now have 7 or so fields that you can play at for games, and for scenarios, the entire field is open.

- They have your standard forest (a little open) but filled with trees, buildings, a car, bunkers, etc... This is my personal favorite field, I dominate on it every time. (Great for long ball practice).

- They have "the hills". This is basically two hills, with long grass, and a ton of different bunkers.

- The Obstacle course, I don't know if this field will be used a lot, it's changed slightly. It was basically an open field with a lot of scattered low coverage. (Great for Dagger Practice).
Now the obstacle course has a little village on it, a village that composes of some attached buildings, and a few that are about 45 feet away... this is also great for a CQC attack at defend type of thing.

- The Veit Village, consists of a "fortress styled area", a front wall, 7 buildings, and a two floor watch tower. In front of the village is a ton of bunkers, cover, and some buildings for the attackers to use. (The king of attack and defend fields, great practice.... and amazing nigh games held here).

- The Town, consists of two rows of 8 or so buildings that are attached with intertwining routes to make your way through (and windows and doors, etc). With a line of buildings off one side, this is a great combination of CQC and mid-close range combat. An overall well rounded field and my 2nd favorite. (Field buildings from abouve would look like: ==| )

- The Jungle Fortress: Currently needing some repair work on it, it is a 4 walled building up against a hill, with a wide front door. There is heave bush on it's 3 and 9 o'clock, and a high hill at its 6. It has two standing raises in its front corners, and a 2nd story tower in the middle, another great attack and defend building... makes for a great HQ.

- Skid ville, a newer field... composes of 2 or 3 buildings, some bunkers, skids, and a little trench. I have never played here as a single game, but it works great doing Viet Village vs Skid Ville.

Overall, there is plenty of cover, and wooded areas, but if you are more into deep bush games, this may not be to your likening.

There is one more thing, there is a fair walk from the parking/front desk area to the staging/dead zone area. So, be prepared to hick about 600-800m.

Reffing:

This field takes safety and fair play to up most importance, and their refs show it. Although, I have seen some "bad apple" refs, in the most part, SOF has some of the best refs out there. They do their job, interact, keep everything safe, and make everyones day more enjoyable. This is an amazing field if you want to get a bunch of young (or older) first timers out as a grouping.

The Owners:

Matt and Vince are two of the best field owners I have come to known. They are willing to listen, help out, and will make sure everyone has a good day. These two guys know how to keep a customer happy. PDT_Armataz_02_02

Prices: *not official, don't quote me*

The prices and type of paint will vary depending on if it's a scenario, special game, big game, tourney, walk on game, or group booking.

Prices are normally around $90-$120 a case of paint (depending on game type and paint type). Sometimes it can be as low as $70 a case for some of there special event. (I think that was the price for the last Bush Ball Tourney).

They paint they have is based on availability, last I checked they had, Spectrum, V1, X-Ball Bronze, X-Ball Silver, and Menace.

So you have a wide selection of paint, at field average prices.

For entrance, gun owners have to option of purchasing a day pass to the field for $5, plus and additional $5 for all day air, or they can get a yearly membership for $60, which would give you free field access and store discounts. If you purchase your marker from SOF, you get a free yearly membership.

Renters have a variety of options for renting that include different gear, prices range from $25 for rentals, to $75, so their is options for everyone.

I think I covered pretty much covered everything...

I would give this field a overall rate of 8.5-9/10, where there is room for improvement in fixing up some buildings, providing more help/transport from peoples vehicles to staging area, and because paint prices are around normal.

Other than that, this is an amazing field, great staff, fair prices, and is filled with a multitude of playing areas, buildings, bunkers, forests, and streams.

Doubt gives this field two thumbs up.

Review: Great fields, great refs, about average prices. fields are well designed and fun to play on. the refs make allot of different and creative games depending on how many people your playing with. games like kick the can, siege, tower of terror just to name a few. kick the can first team to knock over the garbage can in the center of the field without getting shot wins, siege one team starts in the town and the other team starts all around them and has to raid the town, tower of terror a couple guys usually three start in a two story tower and everyone else ( 8-10 players )has to attack and clean out the tower. lots of fun plus the have the usual games death match, capture the flag stuff like that. excellent field!

Review: Really wicked awseome, prices not the best but better than most fields, the fields were awseome, my favorite is the hill because it's got some great hiding spots. some days they bring out a bbq and have an awseome lunch.
the rounds that we played were like attack and defend, all for one, normal team elimination, and one time the birthday game.

overall a great field, pricing needs to be better but wtvr 8.5outta10

Review: .:THE PROS:.

SOF is an amazing field! They have 5 awesome woodsball fields: Obstacle Course, Little Saigon, Mine Town, The Forest, and the Kapyong Valley. They also have some very well maintained speedball courts. The best is Kapyong valley. There are two hills and each team starts behind 1 of them. In the valley between the hills, there's lots of tall grass, barrels, trenches, and pillboxes to use to your advantage. The forest is a huge area with buildings, foxholes in the ground, and old car to hide behind, and lots of wood walls for cover. There is even a sniper tower.

SOF also hosts scenario games that are quite fun! During a scenario at SOF, most of the playing fields are used so there is A LOT of space for different objectives.

The rentals are pretty good (Spyder MR-1 with VForce Vantage mask and 3000psi HPA tank) and are well maintained. MOST of the referees do a great job.

Sometimes this guy that works there asks if you want a lift in his pickup, so you don't have to walk to the field which is almost 1km away.

.:THE CONS:.

LONG WALK TO FIELDs - My first time there, they didn't even tell me what to do so I just followed some other people that were walking to the fields. It was quite unsafe because nobody told me that I was heading strait into the playing area, so I walked over there not realising that I had to wear my goggles and I almost got hit!

REST AREA - Lack of netting! No place to lock up gear, just picknick tables. There is a chronograph, but I have been there 4-5 times and they have NEVER made anybody chrono their marker. I suggest that you encourage others to chrono the velocity of their markers to keep the game fair and safe.

FIELD and PROPS - In some places you have to take extra caution. The old car in the forest could have some broken glass so that could pose a safety issue.

REFs - I had to remind the ref to tell the noobs and renters NOT to pick up paintballs off the ground, and that going in the river beside the hills could damage the rental guns.

************************************************************
***********************
Well, there you have it. SOF has weaknesses, but this is still my primary place for paintballing. It is a lot more fun than PBA because of the woodsball fields and the speedball courts. Not to mention the BYOP, Tournament, and Scenario games! I suggest you go with a buddy because it will be much safer and more fun.

Review: this has got to be thebest paintball field in hamilton. There are 4 well laid out fields: The town, the forest (which is the best field) the 2 hills, and the obsticle course, The proshop now isnt just a garage, now its really a proshop,and there are a lot of renters which is good for newbies. and on the negative side, I think the reffs should wantt to reff and should be at least 18 or older, and there isnt much protection for people in the deadbox chances are you may get hit with a stray paintball, but the odds are very very slim. I think they should buy some netting, and there is a long walk from the registration area to the fields, overall this is a great field I strongly recomend it.

Review: soldier of fortune is probably the best outdoor field in the Hamilton area. There's lots of land, lots of fields, in general good layout of the playing fields. The field isn't far from the LINC so commuting players can get to it pretty easy from the highway. The prices are about average, great deal if you're a member (basically you can play on the field for free) The pro-shop has good prices but ordering a gun, barrel, stock, basically anything can be painful. I order a 98-tippman from them with a flatline barrel (both of these are mass produce and are very common)I didn't get them till 7 weeks after ordering, but because of the huge delay they gave me a pretty good discount. Also my friend ordered an all american 14" barrel, but when the shipment came in they ordered the wrong barrels, but my friend ended up getting a better barrel for the same price.
PROS-
Great staff
Friendly owners
has both professionals and newbies on the field
Good price's (both shop and field)
Lots of playing area
fun scenarios

CONS-
shop can be little unorganized(but they usually give you a deal if they goof up)
Its a far walk from the parking lot to the playing fields
its not the safest field around (lack of netting)

OVERALL-4/5

Review: I went to SOF on a terrible day, it was very cold, windy and rainy. I didnt like paintballing at first I got hit really hard and the hills area were terrible . I sat out while my friends were in the forest. After the forest they went to the village or town so I thought I would give it one more try and I liked it. I guess paintballing isnt too bad I somewhat fun towards the end i think its for men not girls LOL. The only thing I didnt like was how it was raining all day and how paintballs really hurt when u get hit up close. I would go back again when its warmer outside and not raining. It was very hard to see out of the masks while playing they would fog up. I really enjoyed myself.
