Make Paintball Field Bunkers
When building your own outdoor paintball field to play paintball on with your friends or customers who come to your paintball park, building paintball field bunkers is an important thing to know how to do. Field bunkers allow those playing the game to take cover from incoming fire easily, and imbed themselves so that they will be able to shoot at opponents from a safer position. There are many different shapes and sizes of field bunkers, but to make any of them, you will need a few basic things and building techniques.
To make a paintball field bunker, you will need:
- Fresh Dirt
- Decide where you want to build your field bunker. They can really be built anywhere, but makes the most sense to build these field bunkers towards the opposite ends of the paintball field. This way players can take cover in them and fire at each other from a distance.
- Begin digging with your shovel. Dig a hole that is deep enough and large enough for at least one person to hide themselves within. Pile the dirt from the hole on the front side of the bunker facing the rest of the field, so that when players are in the hole, they can peer over the edge of the dirt along one side of the bunker and also fire over it at opponents. Make sure the dirt is not piled up at too steep an angle along this part of the bunker, as it needs to be something players can easily climb up on and over if necessary. It is not a wall of dirt.
- Use a hose to soften the dirt. This will allow you to make it thicker as well as change the way it is constructed. Wet the dirt a bit and then pat it down with a shovel. Do this every week or so, to ensure your paintball field bunker stays together as paintball players dive into it and climb over it each game.
