It helps that true but it nowhere a necessity. Hell you could even play in underwear and don’t care if you like
Camouflage is useful in certain conditions but more important the way you play. In casual recball and especially in small open map it won’t make much of a difference. On the other hand, on large terrains and in military simulation it one heck of an advantage to have I agree. In this kind of environment, opposites teams tend to search for each other and in the distance, keeping a low profile, observing, organizing a plan and waiting for an opportunity to take action is often a strategy that pays off and buys you time.
It all depends on your gameplay too, if you tent to be in a permanent aggressive mode, gun blazing at every adversary you encounter no matter the situation, camo won’t be such an asset. If you are a more passive player and wait for the occasion, this will be an effective resource. The combination of your discrete camouflage and well timed ambush and can be devastating for the enemy, even while being on your own against multiple’s assailants.
You can also be creative and use that asset the way I do. My favorite strategy as I often rush on the offensive, and I end up implied in a firefight I give pressure on the enemy who fights back until I unload a very aggressive burst of bullet while they duck for cover. That creates a lap of time they no longer see me, and I use that to my advantage to change position and hide in the bushes who roughly got similar colors to my clothes, and if they haven’t seen me running I stop moving and wait. When they get their heads back up again they think I am still where I was since they haven’t seen me exit. It gives me the opportunity to wait for them to lower their guard and make a mistake. Usually since I no longer respond to theirs attack they move up to check if I’m still there but don’t suspect I’m hidden close somewhere else and that when I take action to take them down while they are in the open. Plus in the confusion, they probably won’t know right away where the shoots are coming from which give me time to make my final decision to take them all on or seem too risky and be preferable to retreat.
Hiding in the woods waiting for an ambush occasion
My personal recommendation for an all-around type of camouflage clothes I would choose the multi-cam. Of all the different environments and paintball fields, I visited and the amounts of camo types I have seen in use; multi-cam was the most versatile for the change of terrains I have seen or in this case haven’t spotted. It blends especially well in bushy fields and forests in spring and summer season. Of course, it won’t cover all environments on it own that why it is good to have a secondary set of camo clothe in your equipment arsenal. Urban territory and abandoned warehouse, for example, there probably going to be a lot of grey with all the concrete so ACU digital camouflage is a perfect candidate there.
So in closing the subject, camouflage is not something you must absolutely get your hand on but blending into the surroundings and not being seen first will often give you the chance to make the original strike and that an advantage to be considers more than lightly.
