Safety Eye Wear

Paintball masks are also a countermeasure to protect your eyes from getting into contact with the paint just in case you or a fellow player accidentally fires towards your face.

However, unlike the plug, this mask should be kept on in the entirety of the game. The only time that this gear should be taken off is if the barrel plugs that I mentioned earlier, are inserted back into the loaded guns.

An alternative that was used earlier was paintball safety glasses, but these are inferior to masks because they only cover the eyes.
