Alongside Quests, Paintball is one of the most popular games in Rec Room. In Paintball, two teams battle for dominance with a variety of paint weapons on one of several maps in one of two modes.

The #RecRoomOriginal room ^Paintball is a #pickup room, i.e., teleporting and "walking" VR players as well as Screen Mode players may play in the same room. The #RecRoomOriginal room ^PaintballVR is only a #teleportvr room, i.e., only teleporting VR players may play in it.


Capture the Flag[]

In this game mode, teams endeavor to advance towards their opponent's base and seize their flag. One must possess a free hand in order to accomplish this. Once the flag is captured, it must be brought back to one's own base. If dropped for any reason, the flag will remain on the ground until it is claimed by the team that owns it, in which case it will be teleported back to their base, or by the opposing team, which can then make an attempt to capture it. It is necessary to have one's own flag in order to score when returning a flag.

The victor of this game is determined by the first team to achieve three captures or by the team in the lead when time runs out.

Team Battle[]

This is a deathmatch mode. You will be able to tell the match you're in is deathmatch by Coach saying, "Team Battle!" Both teams are attempting to score the most hits on the opposing team. Whichever team reaches 50 enemy hits first or the team in the lead with the most hits when time runs out will win the match.

Game Setup page of This Room Menu for a custom room in standard room mode.

Paintball maps can be customized in two ways:

  • By finding the ^Paintball or ^PaintballVR room in the Play Menu of the Watch Menu, tap the "i" to go to the room details, and then tapping "Go to Private." You can create a named copy of a paintball map by tapping the "Copy" button in the room details. You won't be able to use the Maker Pen, but you can use the Game Setup page of the This Room Menu of the Watch Menu to set the maximum score, duration of the game, field items (e.g., weapons), and starting items for both hands of respawning players. For example, Paintbow is played with bows instead of paintball pistols.
  • By creating a new Custom Room based on a paintball map with the Custom Rooms Menu of the Watch Menu. There won't be any built-in gameplay in the new room, but you can use the full power of the Maker Pen and the Palette to create new paintball-like games. Examples include PvP Shooters and TowerDefense games.
