The Paintball Gun is a ranged weapon which has a 10*1/10 (10%) chance of being dropped by the Painter. It fires a three-shot burst of slow-moving, arcing projectiles which consume no mana or ammunition.

Its best modifier is Unreal.

  • Though it is somewhat inaccurate at longer ranges, the respectable damage output, increased critical strike chance and lack of needing ammunition or mana makes the Paintball Gun a potent and reliable early-game weapon.
  • It is comparable to Minishark since it has an effective use time of 8 (3 shots per one use). While its base damage of 12 is lower than 13 of Minishark+Musket Ball, it has a higher critical chance and is affected more by the weapon modifier. Megashark is more accurate on longer ranges and autofires, while Paintball Gun has the benefit of consuming no ammunition.
