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.
Ár skal rísa, sá er annars vill
fé eða fjör hafa. Sjaldan liggjandi úlfur
lær um getur né sofandi maður sigur.
