If you've got someone on your holiday list who's interested in paintball, there's probably nothing they'd like better than some new equipment or a paintball adventure. At SplatterPark, we want to help you find just the right gift for all of the players on your list. Whether you're interested in purchasing new equipment for the seasoned player, or a starter package for someone who's just found out how much fun a paintball park can be, we've got the perfect suggestions to make their eyes light up on Christmas morning.
Gifts for the Entry Level Player
Entry level players are much easier to buy for because they often don't have any equipment of their own yet. There's not a lot of worry over getting them duplicate items when they usually rent their guns and buy ammo at the park. There are a number of things that are useful in paintball, besides the guns and paintballs. New players might also need their own goggles or mask, protective wear, gloves and gear bags. When looking at guns and tanks for the entry level player, you don't need to focus on the most expensive models. In most cases, new players do best with something sturdy that has a warranty. If they stick with playing and want to improve their skill, they can always upgrade their equipment later. To get them started, you can buy a few of these items for them or get them all in a set.
The Tippmann Cronus Tactical Paintball Gun Mega Set is an excellent choice for beginners. The set includes a lightweight gun, mask with visor, paintball feeder, CO2 tank, paintball harness, paintball tubes and oil for the gun.
Gifts for the Advanced Player
If you're shopping for an advanced player, it can be more challenging to find the right gift. It's a pretty sure bet that they don't need any of the basics, like goggles or clothing. When they have so much equipment already, you might struggle to come up with ideas. We're pretty sure, though, that advanced players would love an advanced gun to match their skill set.
The Empire Invert Mini Paintball Gun with HPA Tank is a great choice for the serious paintball player. This gun is lightweight, compact and super accurate for players who want to compete.
Our Top Picks for the Holidays
Tippmann released an all-new basic option that combines performance and durability with a sleek gun. The set includes the Tan Marker gun, a high-performance paintball mask with a visor and anti-fog goggles, 200 round paintball feeder and a 20 oz aluminum CO2 tank.
We also like Tippmann's Gryphon Value pack. The .68 caliber paintball marker is reliable, lightweight and compact, making it great for new players. The Gryphon has a 10-inch ported barrel and a blade trigger with a smooth pull. The set also includes high-performance goggles.
