Some license stuff:
Usage on own risk. Do not modify the code. Do not redistribute or copy. Do not use for commercial purposes! Neither direct nor indirect. So this also applies to add-ons used
related to this plugin! Make sure, that your "donors" don't get any benefits that can be used related to paintball.
More details on the bottom of this page.

Current version: v1.2.2 (works only with Craftbukkit 1.6.1 and upwards)


Paintball is a fast paced and action packed multiplayer game.
In the classic TeamDeathMatch mode 2 teams compete against each other to bombard each other with snowballs. Once hit a player is out and automatically leaves the arena and has to wait in the paintball lobby for his mates to finish and the next match to start. In the Paintball lobby you will meet all paintball players, choose your team and wait for enough players, or the end of the last match. When all conditions are met, a countdown starts which announces the next match.


Paintball is constantly expanding. There are more and more features added which have not much to do with the classic paintball game. But do not panic: According to your personal preferences you can modify or disable most things in the config.yml in the Paintball folder.

  • No client or server modifications or additional plugins are required !
  • Most stuff is configurable !
  • Multiple Arenas: Build as many arenas as you like !
  • Complete freedom on what your arena looks like! As Paintball does not care about your arenas borders, your arena can have any shape and layout, as long as it is impenetrable. Simple build some sort of wall around your arena to keep your players inside.
  • Multiple Spawns: Paintball lets you define multiple spawn points for each team (red, blue, spectators) !
  • Automatic-Lobby-Arena-System: The Paintball lobby will automatically rotate through all your ready arenas. No need for administrators to be online !
    Limitation: Currently there can always only run one match at a time.
  • Easy: No complex settup needed ! Only 4 commands and your arena is ready and added to the automatic arena rotation !
  • Advanced: There are lots of of configuration options to still give you full control over everything and let you customize it to your wishes ! (Examples are customizeable health per match, number of balls, points and cash per action, en- and disabling of certain features, etc.)
  • Mechanism to strictly seperate Survival and Paintball and to prevent "cheating" in and with Paintball.
  • Easy and individually adjustable small Shop, where you can buy ammunition or other special and unique "weapons", gadgets and power-ups with the Paintball-Cash earned during the matches.
  • Ranking: Your players gain points to compete with each other !
  • Various statistics: examples are Points, Cash, Kills, Deaths, Hits, Shots, KD, Accurancy, Teamattacks, Wins and Defeats for each player, each arena and as a whole.
  • Toggleable Killfeed ! Turn it off if it spams you !

If you are already in love with this plugin, you can take it right here and now!


Easy integration on every survival server!

Our main target is to keep this plugin easily integratable on any standard survival server without disturbing the survival feeling. Players shall not be able to swindle items or gain other advantages over survival players through Paintball.

Config explanation

Here you got some sort of overview what actions are taken to protect the survival-part of the server:

People with the 'paintball.admin' permissions node can bypass some of them.

  • Prevent commands that are not related to Paintball. So player can't teleport or use commands as a benefit.
  • Prevent breaking and placing of blocks.
  • Prevent dropping and picking up items, or dropping the armor.
  • Options to let players only join with full health or hunger so they can't escape during fights.
  • Options to save the players inventory when joining the lobby and restore afterwards.
  • Paintball inventory is cleared when leaving the lobby.
  • Turned off damage and starvation inside the lobby.
  • Many things can be disabled if they create problems with your other plugins.
  • Explosions do no damage to blocks.
  • Only Paintball players receive the Paintball messages. Your other players will not get spammed.

Official Test Server

In order to find and fix bugs and to test this plugin with more people, I invite everyone to my server who wants to play paintball or wants to test this plugin out first.


Server should be online 24/7, but don't wonder if it is temporary not reachable. It is rather new and still under construction. Also note, that paintball is running there only as addition to normal survival. So don't wonder if people want to play survival there instead. Just stay friendly.

Additional informations

Hint about version checking and serverlist:

With version 1.1.0 I added a version check and prepared for some kind of serverlist:
- This means that this plugin is sending some general information about the minecraftserver:
Ip-Adress, port, servername, slots, motd, bukkit version, if server is in onlinemode and if it has whitelist enabled.
- And some informations about paintball, like:
how many players already played paintball there and if it is an paintball-only server (autolobby enabled) and if the server admin wants the server to be listed at some kind of public server list later (When it's finished: rigth now these data are only stored in a mysql table on my server (
- And you will receive the actual plugin version and some hint in your console if your current version is outdated.

->This data are only send once every reload.
-> For people who don't want to share these informations with me :( -> you can en- and disable this in the config with the setting "check version"
