Paintball war with friends.

Post by Sting Auer on Tue Jan 11, 2011 3:25 pm

One of my friends and I are designing homemade paintball weapons to fight with. He currently has many more teammates than I do, and I need to design some weapons to give me the upper hand.

I am already going to use homemade paintballs.


These are the things that I already have designed, or am going to use:

1.) a spring powered combat rifle. It has sights, can be reloaded quickly, and should have decent range and accuracy. It is also capable of using either a hopper for regular paintballs, or an "ammo tube", which which lets it use 1.5 inch by 2 inch ammunition, which are most likely going to be larger cylinder paintballs, or shotgun style paintball ammunition.

2.) A spring-powered cannon, which uses a 3-inch wide barrel. This would shoot either homemade smoke bombs, or very large paintballs.

3.)a landmine. It has a button on top that, when pressed, fires small spring-powered guns that shoot several small paintballs out of each.



I just need some more ideas. I have an idea for a hand-cranked machine gun, but I am having trouble figuring out how to give it sufficient power without making a large crank to pull the springs back a large amount.

That sounds awesome! What are the guns made of?

PVC piping, except for the springs and launch mechanism. Those would be made out of metal and a very smooth plastic.

Well, I can't really use blowguns. I have asthma.


Also, they aren't the best choice are they? Wouldn't they be shorter ranged that a spring launched gun?

Paintball trebuchet! XD

Is spring the only allowed power source? If not, you can certainly launch paintballs with a flywheel attached to a motor.

I'm interested in knowing how you make paintballs by yourself.

I'll just make a mould out of wood or Styrofoam, then pour in melted plastic. Once the plastic is almost completely hardened, I will poke a hole in it, put paint in, then cover the top.


Ta-da! paintball.



Also, spring power is not the only allowed power source. there aren't really any rules to what you can use. My friend is actually making a paintball gun that shoots flaming paintballs.


Don't worry, his design will most likely backfire. It uses a flammable lubricant which coats the ball as it leaves the barrel, which is then lit by a lighter hanging off of the end. I think that it's just gonna set the inside of his barrel on fire.



I don't really understand what you are talking about when you say "a flywheel attached to a motor". How will that fire paintballs with any knd of accuracy or range

that would generate enough useable energy, which can be used to power a mechanism, maybe through a clutch.

i really hope the subtle moment of inertia transfer doesn't throw the gun in a random(or not) direction.

Oh ok.



Well, I don't really want to use anything expensive at all. All of my designs are in the 5-10 dollar price range. I am trying to come up with the cheapest but most effective I can.


One thing I was thinking about was a "sound grenade". Basically it is just some mega loud speaker thing that you would throw at your enemies, causing them pain, or at least flustering them.

Maybe, you could make a gun that is like a mechanical pencil so that if someone gets close you can get them quickly.

I don't think I would need a special weapon for when they get close. I'll just shoot them with my combat rifle.


One thing I do nee, however, is something with extremely long range. I have a design for a paintball sniper rifle that uses compressed air and has a rifled barrel, but I don't think I could afford the air tank and the compressor for it.

-smile grows larger and larger-



Now THAT is awesome! I'll just turn it 90 degrees, and add a barrel to the entire thing, and a hopper.



I'll also hook it up to be crank powered, with an arm brace so I can hold the entire thing with one arm, and crank with the other.

I looked up how to do that, but I would need a vacuum cleaner small enough to fit on my back, yet powerful enough to propel large amounts of paintballs at a high rate.

It should work if I add a little panel onto either side so that it doesnt fly out the sides. I might make special, smaller paintballs for this one as well to prevent jamming. I tested it on a 2D physics simulator called Phun and it worked quite well.

As nice as Phun is, I don't think it could provide a realistic enough simulation, especially since it's 2D. Interesting Idea, though; a paintball minigun... I feel like making one now...

Dyson, the small one, it may be expensive to produce, but the posibilities...whoa...

Would it be perchance the fact you'll be destroying it(?) for comedic use? xD

I wouldn't need to destroy it.


I just strap it to my back, set it to blow, attach an barrel and a hopper, and I have a rapid fire, long range, uber powerful paintball gun.
