Why would anyone play paintball? The guns have less upgrade compatibility, Less accuracy, less realism, less everything. If it's cause of being able to tell if you hit someone, uy an airsoft springer or gas gun and some 6mm paintballs and you'll be having way more fun than them with also more accuracy due to hop-up. If it's cause of fast-paced games. Use springer war. If it's cause of both of the reasons, buy springers and 6mm paintballs. What reasons are there for playing paintball? Airsoft is cheaper too. Airsoft is like paintball with more options.
