How Fast Does A Paintball Travel (MPH/FPS)?


The speed at which paintballs fly during paintball games played at professional, regulated paintball parks and fields is regulated by requiring every player to fire over a chronograph, or radar gun, before entering the field of play. All paintball guns are required to shoot below 300 feet per second (approximately 200mph) before entering play, and all are adjustable to ensure they will do so. Many paintball fields lower the speed at which paintballs are legally allowed to fire to settings below 300 feet per second to ensure that everyone plays fair and to take some of the “sting” out of the game for newer or younger players.
