Which side is ussually the underdog there and why btw?
They generally can fire either. You can get a "artillary" shell which is basically a rubber tube filled with paint with a loose cardboard sleeve on the outside. If you want a "shotgun" affect, Fill with loose paintballs and the put in a piece of foam that is tied to the mortar/laws. The foam keeps the balls in while not causing damage when it's fired. Opsgear actually makes a nerf-type rocket which is soaked in paint & fired from your shoulder.

Go to http://www.paintballcombat.net/ http://www.paintballmines.com/ http://www.opsgear.com/ or http://www.englerpaintballguns.com/ to check out some pictures of both the equipment as well as the ammo.
