New flagship field based on ‘Call of Duty’ gets rave reviews from paintball players and gamers alike

NukeTown 2013

Tippmann Sports is proud to have been named the official sponsor of Nuketown 2013 at Paintball Explosion in East Dundee, Illinois. The new flagship field, based on the popular multiplayer map from the Call of Duty video game franchise, opened earlier this month to incredibly strong feedback from paintball players and video gamers alike. Much like in the game, the new field transforms players into an abandoned 1960’s town, complete with a yellow school bus, mannequins, bright weatherboard homes, and other exciting obstacles. Sponsoring Nuketown 2013 is part of Tippmann’s longstanding strategy to help support the most popular paintball fields in the United States and throughout the world.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to have Tippmann on board for Nuketown 2013,” said Romeo Kapudija and T.J. Andres, co-owners of Paintball Explosion. “We’ve been playing paintball for more than 25 years and we’ve always loved the company’s products. Plus, nobody stands behind paintball fields and events like Tippmann. The company has certainly grown and expanded its focus over the years, but they’ve never lost sight of the importance of supporting the industry and standing behind players at all skill levels – and that’s what makes Tippmann an undisputed paintball leader.”
