PaintBallz by Failz


Description: PaintBallz is an addon created for the Garrysmod 1 week gamemode creation competition. As such it is somewhat buggy and underdeveloped (although playable). This was made in only 5 days (Max is actually about 9 days (Wednesday to Wednesday)) due to time restrictions on the creator personally.

In PaintBallz, the main goal is to get more kills (Frags) than the other team within the 6 minute round. Paintballs make marks on (most) surfaces. You have unlimited paintballs, but you're limited to 15 at a time and once out you cannot reload, but rather wait for the magazine to gradually regenerate.

NOTICE: As of posting there is only one round. After that, a contest specific hook is called for the next level to be loaded. This means you will have to reload the map in order to play another round. Also, you MUST play on arena_lumberyard (TF2) as that is currently the hardcoded map that the gamemode is meant to work with.



Q: Why is this gamemode so buggy/"broken"?
A: Because it was made in under a week for the Garrysmod 1 week gamemode creation competition. All resources have been made within the 5 days.

Q: Where is this contest?
A: Link

Q: Will this ever be made standalone?
A: Maybe. Depends if I even want to look it again after my time away from it.
