    Greg Hastings' Tournament Paintball is first-person paintball game developed by WXP and published by Activision Value Publishing for the Xbox in North America on November 16, 2004, with a European release on March 24, 2005.

    Unlike Activision's earlier Extreme PaintBrawl series, Greg Hastings' Tournament Paintball brings a more realistic take on the shooting sport of paintball, and features numerous real-life professional players, fields, gear, and sponsors. It features a celebrity tie-in with professional paintball player Greg Hastings, and received three sequels: (Greg Hastings' Tournament Paintball MAX'D, NPPL Championship Paintball 2009, and Greg Hastings' Paintball 2.

    Along with its 7-on-7 online multiplayer via Xbox Live and its single-player career mode, the game is known for its limited visor vision, multiple tactical abilities (including leaning behind cover, glancing to the side, and diving to prone), the ability to switch weapon hands on-the-fly, and for the "Cheat Meter" (where players who are hit are given a quick opportunity to wipe the paint off, allowing them to continue normally while risking disqualification for cheating).

    Game Modes

    Greg Hastings' Tournament Paintball has two primary modes of play, Single Player Career Mode and Multiplayer Online via Xbox Live or System Link.

    The Gear


    There are over twenty Paintgun Markers in the game from manufacturers including JT, Tippmann, Kingman, Odyssey, WGP, and Dye. Each individual marker has different weight, speed and accuracy ratings.


    Players can customize their markers with individual barrels. Barrels will further increase the accuracy of the shots fired with Markers.


    There are 5 different hoppers to choose from including gravity feed, electronic aligator and belt drive. Each hopper increases the number of paintballs loaded into the marker.

    Air Systems

    Air systems provide Markers with the power they need to fire paintballs at high velocity. The larger the air tank, the more paintballs that can be fired.
