Cartel Norte vs. Cartel Del Sur. 

Where does your loyalty lie? Pick your side. Game on.



Cartel Wars is the mastermind of our very own Ivan “Ivanski” Aqunio. Taking place over a Friday, Saturday and Sunday is a fun this Mag Fed & 1st Strike Paintball event in which the Carel Del Sur takes on the Cartel Del Norte. There are appointed Cartel Boss’s (General, XO, 2 Commanders) for each side, and multiple missions planned
  • PICK YOUR SIDE – are you Norte or Del Sur? Where does your loyalty lie?
  • Multiple missions (here’s a sneak peak at just a few of them)
  • Saturday: Fight for the Plazas: 6 flags – Your Cartel must capture and defend those flags while some players (Narcos) are fighting to take over and defend the Plazas. There will be stolen kilos of (pretend) cocaine and Marijuana hidden in places all over the field. You team earns bonus points for gaining control of them.
  • Sunday Mission: 2 “Kidnapped” members will need to be rescued by a group of Sicarios designated by each side. Also, 2 stash houses will need to be defended as each side tries to steal the “money” and “drugs”. Eliminate the Cartel bosses and you side gets a bonus.

    With paid admission you can dry camp on the 10 acres of Gladiator Paintball Park Friday and Saturday night and enjoy evening paintball play. Rock out to live music Saturday night with a local band by the firepit.  Want to join in? Bring your instrument and we will sit by the fire belting out some cool tunes!  Don’t want to camp? No problem – grab a local hotel and come back each day well rested! Gladiator will have local vendors providing a pre-ordered Breakfast Burrito’s and lunch time will be authentic Tacos made to order.
