build a paintball gun to shot at each other (tested to not exceed 300fps)place teams 100yards apart .shoot tell only one contestant is unhit .best two out of three wins .this could prove to be a challenge as paint balls will break if speed exceeds 300fps .quit safe and would most likley prove to be a great final finally for the finals. mike
ps(no co2) .air copressor to generate air pressure.mask for safety is all that is required.

**Maybe** with a pump gun, but even this is unlikely to be put together safely in 10 hours. Nice, novel idea, but I don't think it would get very far in the junkyard

I like these ideas but they are a bit passive on Junk Yard Wars. The Wars word kind of throws you a bit.
Hey have them build a Paint Ball Nuke, then the team that gets the largest paint splash spread on Chicago wins.

I think that it would be okay but these people probably don't even know where to begin when making a paintball gun

What kind of pussy plays with only 300fps? 400fps is good. And yeah, how are they going to machine a prescision rifled barrel in Junkyard wars? How on earth. Maybe they'll just "find" all the parts for a paintball gun. Just like they "found" those rocket engines on that one episode. how handy. Lame asses.
