It hurts when you hit

If a player is hit by a paintball, feels a little insignificant pain for a few seconds. A little more will hurt if hit on bare skin than in skin covered with clothes. Hitting the ball at close range is not as loud as hitting a tennis ball. Of course, as close is the gun that shoots as stronger is the hit. But the major "injuries" that could become a finishing one paintball game, are scratches from thorns, wrench, rather than to shoot someone.
