Leader of a large paintball organization that goes against the grain, promoting non mainstream styles of play. Players use pump action, or stock class paintball markers that require re-cocking for each shot. Members of this organization, sometimes called "Mavericks" are under gunned and use woodsman skills, tactics, and strategy to overcome opponents with superior firepower. They often upset other paintball players because they accomplish more with one or two paintballs than what takes others 100's. Maverick is an ego destroyer and is often under estimated.
