    Of course the salt water will be great for your guns.

    Can you imagine the trouble DAN would have writing an accident report for an underwater paint ball death.And best of all could you just see all the cyber diver accident experts giving their "expert" opinions.

    Well if your really bored and diving a rebreather. Hide and seek is always good. No tell tale bubbles.

    First, this is just a personal opinion, not a researched fact from the command:
    1. Paint balls will crush at depth, plus the gelatin would disolve in the water. So strike that. Plus they'd travel about a foot and a half...maybe
    2. Best option 1: Lazer tag. Would have problems in turbid water though.
    3. Option 2: A gun that fires small "toypedo" style projectiles. water pressure and cavitation will keep anything from traveling very far/well, so you need something that will corkscrew through the water like those toys.
    4. Option 3: As mentioned, some kind of blunt tip for a spear gun, however its flight characteristics will be impacted by the need to make it blunt enough that it doesn't harm the diver....
    Just my two cents.
