Hardball is shooting 4.5 lead or copper pellets at 500+ fps (from often home made airguns built into real AK's etc). There effective range is 300 - 400 feet and they play in abandoned buildings where they can shoot through the drywall to hit each other. Very dangerous game with high protection requirements.
