How fast do paintballs travel?

In general paintball guns are designed to shoot paintballs at a speed of 280-300 feet per second (fps).

The maximum speed for a paintball gun is regulated by industry standards and safety guidelines. Most fields and tournaments have a maximum velocity limit of 280 fps, and players are required to use a chronograph to measure the velocity of their gun before play.
