Call of Duty's Nuketown Map Recreated in Real Life for Paintball

If you camped in the top floors of the Nuketown houses long enough that you wanted to change its hideous government-issue curtains and carpet, then this video is for you. An Illinois paintball field and (paintball) arms supplier Tippmann Sport recreated the map in real life this past weekend.

The nuclear clock tower, the school bus, the sandbags, the mannequins in the windows, they're all here at Paintball Explosion of East Dundee, Ill. It doesn't look like the map stretches out into the cul-de-sac, but there are two houses, and the yellow one with the back deck is nearly virtuoso.

Notice, however, the lack of heedless running and gunning, grenade spamming and melee kills. Some things just can't be replicated.

Never understood how Tippman stayed in business for paintball. I get the "tactical" aspect of it with them looking more like "real" guns (if you want to call it that). I dunno. I figure part of the fun of paintball was how frantic it can be when you're being pelted with paintballs all around you.

Something like this would be awesome however. Might actually make me play paintball again. I haven't played in years.
