Question: How Many Miles Per Hour (MPH) Does a Paintball Gun Shoot?
Answer: A paintball gun that shoots a standard velocity will shoot about 200 miles per hour (mph). A paintball going 300 feet per second (fps) is moving at 204.5 mph (329 km/h) and a paintball going 280 fps is traveling at 191 mph (307 km/h). To convert feet per second to miles per hour, take the number of feet per second and multiply that number by 0.68.
