Paintball Mod – Minecraft 1.9, 1.8, and 1.7.2

You can now have huge paintball wars, all in the safety of your house thanks to the Paintball mod!

Overview of this Mod

The paintball mod is pretty self explanatory. You get to play paintball in Minecraft! The concept is so simple, yet so well built. First off, there are two teams distinguished by the two colors, red and blue. Each team comes with there own set of differently colored weapons, armor, pellets, and bases. Best of all, you can install this onto a Minecraft server, meaning you can play with your friends and schedule huge paintball wars, all inside Minecraft! Let’s get into the features of the paintball mod.

Paintball Mod Features

Here’s a list of features the mod has to offer:


  • The armor is crafted with red or blue wool, depending on what team you’ll be on.
  • I believe the armor is for aesthetic purposes only, meaning that they won’t really protect you.
  • Crafting Recipe is below:


  • There are a few different types of guns. The list of the name of the guns is listed below.
  • Pistol (Short range)
  • Machine Gun (Short range, but more powerful and higher rate of fire)
  • Assault Rifle (Mid range, more powerful, but has a lower rate of fire than the machine gun)
  • Sniper Rifle (Long range, most powerful, but is single shot like the pistol)


  • This is the ammunition for the paintball guns
  • Crafting Recipe is below:


  • This is a base you can craft.
  • After you place the block, right click it to expand it.
  • The base comes with a chest full of Paintball equipment.

Note: To make the items colored blue, just change the red dye to blue.

That’s all the features in the Paintball mod! Now that you know how to craft all the recipes, just download and install the paintball mod and have fun! (Or better yet, install it on a server to play with your friends!)

So you want to install a mod for Minecraft? Well, thanks to this guide, it’s easy as 1-2-3! Before we start however, here are some precautions you might want to read:

  1. Be sure to get WinRAR or 7-zip. It’s a necessity for installing mods.
  2. Be sure to backup your “minecraft.jar” before doing anything! We don’t want you to have to force update now, do we?
  3. Be sure to delete META-INF inside “minecraft.jar”.
  4. Be sure to install the mods listed in the yellow box below first. They are usually mods required for the mod you want to install to work.
  5. The Forge and Modloader installation instructions only apply if the yellow box below states that the mod requires either Modloader of Forge. If the yellow box does not, use the “Old-Fashioned” instructions.
  6. The Forge and Modloader instructions only apply to the mod itself. Any mod in the yellow box below must be installed using the “old-fashioned” instructions.

Minecraft 1.6.4 and 1.6.2 changed the way mods are to be installed now. So much, that it’s best to have a full blown guide page for this, rather than quick instructions. Click the link below for the guide:

Here’s the steps to installing that mod you want, or how to install Forge, Modloader, :

  1. Close Minecraft. This is to ensure that the files will overwrite properly.
  2. Open up Windows Explorer.
  3. In the navigation bar, type “%AppData%”.
  4. Navigate to “Roaming”. (Skip this step if you can’t see a roaming folder.)
  5. Open up a folder called “.minecraft”.
  6. Open up a folder called “bin”.
  7. Right click the file called “minecraft” or “minecraft.jar”.
  8. Select open with.
  9. Open with WinRAR.
  10. Open up the mod. (be sure to extract the mod first.)
  11. If there are no specific instructions included with the mod, it is safe to assume that you drag all the files in.
  12. Be sure to delete META-INF. I can’t stress this enough.

That’s it! Have fun!

So you have a Mac computer? The Mac Operating System has a very different framework compared to its Windows counterpart, so the installation instructions will be different. Here’s a video to help you out:

So you noticed this mod requires Minecraft Forge or Modloader, correct? Installing Forge and Modloader mods are just as easy as installing mods the old-fashioned way! In fact, it’s even easier once you get passed the main part Here’s the steps:

  1. Install Minecraft Forge, Modloader, or any mod dependency listed in the yellow box below using the “Old-Fashioned” installation instructions to the left.
  2. Start Minecraft up. Close Minecraft afterwards.
  3. Navigate to the “.minecraft” folder. Once you open it, you will notice that there is a “mods” folder. If there isn’t a mods folder to be seen, create one.
  4. Place the mod inside the “mods” folder.
  5. Open Minecraft up and have fun!

For the most part, that’s it when it comes to Modloader and Forge mods. Also, please note that you no longer have to do steps 1 and 2 once you already installed it the first time (you may need to reinstall them however, if you updated your client). Also, just a heads up, if you don’t see the mod loaded into the game, you might have to extract the mod into a folder.  Most mods work in their zipped form, but some require you to extract them first. Have fun!
