Pyrotechnics that can be purchased from Skirmish Paintball Exeter are for sale to players aged 18+.
Hand Grenades are constructed using a cardboard shell, with a fuse inside that has 20-25 paintballs or BB's around the center. To light the fuse, you must tear off the cap, and use the reverse side, which resembles the side of a match box to spark the fuse. When the fuse is lit, there is an approximate 5 seconds before the grenade shatters and explodes, firing coloured paint or BB's in all directions.
Smoke Bombs use the same lighting technology as the hand grenade, with a reverse side to the cap which you must strike against the fuse. When a smoke bomb is lit, it releases coloured smoke for about 2 minutes, to provide cover, or smoke out other paintball players.
The Thunder Flash is a strike and throw explosive boom, used to distract and disorientate your enemy. Excellent for clearing people out of forts or barricades. Can also be used right before an attack to disorientate them before you come running in guns blazing!
