Woodsball is the most common form of paintball. It's played in wooded areas, grassy fields, snowy hills- basically anywhere you can have a quick game. Speedball tournaments use manicured playing fields with large, colorful obstacles.
Woodsball is often called tactical, scenario or milsim paintball. This is because woodsball play tends to simulate military tactics. Woodsball gear is often camouflaged or made to look like authentic military equipment or weapons including the use of scopes, magazines, butt stocks, etc.
Woodsball also tends to be cheaper, and is perfect for someone looking to dip their toes into the world of paintball, and weekend warriors who want to micromanage every aspect of their gear.
