About Greg Hastings

During Greg Hastings’ 23 year paintball career, he has competed all over the world and notched many wins with championship teams such as Ground Zero, Bob Long’s Ironmen, XSV, and Smoke. He is a true master of speedball, woodsball, and every format in between. Greg’s passion for video games started in the late 1970′s while mastering coin operated shooting games such as Asteroids, Defender, and Centipede. This passion came to a pinnacle while being stationed on the nuclear powered fast attack submarine USS Gato, where he mastered “real” video games as a medal winning SONAR Supervisor during his six year tour in the US Navy. Greg earned two Southwest Asia Campaign Medals for his time spent in the combat zone during the first Gulf War, and also received a medal for being “The best SONAR operator ever inspected.” Since then, Greg has dedicated himself to creating the best-selling paintball video game franchise that bears his name.
