What we learn at DefCon 2016: Paintball gear, time 2, and a few other news items.1.
Paintball is back!
At Defcon 16, we took a trip to the Paintball Zone to check out a new paintball machine that was set to go on sale.
And, you know, we were able to check it out, too.2.
A new paintgun in the works!
The DefCon Paintball Gun is scheduled to go live at the end of this month, and it’s set to come with a number of features including an electric motor and a power adapter.
It’ll also be capable of firing a “batteries included” option, which means you can take a few extra batteries to power your paintgun.3.
There’s a new model coming to the game!
It’s called the Paintgun and will be available to the public starting at $1,399.
It features a laser pointer, three-axis accelerometer, and more.
We’re pretty excited to get our hands on it.4.
Some new paintguns are coming!
In addition to the new paint guns, there are also some brand new paintballs coming soon to the market.
There will be a new one called the Power Gun, which is also available for $1.999.
That’s a $500 price drop.
It comes with three different paint options, which you can choose from.5.
There are new weapons available in the paintball game!
There are three new paint-based guns in the game.
The first is the paintgun from the DefCon 15 event, and the second is a new version of the paint gun that will go on display at the upcoming DefCon in Las Vegas.
We can’t reveal more information about these guns, but we’ll update you on that.6.
New paintguns coming to other paintball games!
There’s also a new game coming out called DefCon 2.
The game is scheduled for a March 2016 release.
You can see some of the highlights from that game right here.7.
And a new machine called the Z-Ball.
This machine will be coming to DefCon 2020 and is set to be the first paintball powered by a laser, an accelerometer and an electric power adapter, among other features.8.
There’ll be more paintguns and other new game features coming to paintball at Deficon!
There’ll also a special paintball tournament that will take place this year in the Paint Ball Zone.
We’ll have more details about this tournament and paintball in the coming days.
We’ll be at DefFest in Phoenix for the first time in 2019, and we’ll be there again for the Defcon 2017 event on April 9-10.
