The Paintball mask is a full-face paintball mask with a cap-like visor and a clear lens protecting the wearer's eyes. The mask is primarily light gray, covered in angular patterns which end in arrows, and secured to the wearer's head by two crossed straps. These straps, as well as the pattern on the mask itself, have two colors: black, and the wearer's Ink color. On the forehead portion of the mask is a small version of the Forge logo.
The Paintball Mask comes with Comeback as a main ability when purchased from shops or ordered from Murch. When purchased from SplatNet 2, this item can have any other ability normally available to Headgear items.
As a 3-star item, it also has three slots for secondary abilities. Since it is made by the Forge brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Special Power Up and a lower chance of rolling Ink Saver (Sub).

- A UI icon for an older version of the item was discovered in the data files for Super Mario Maker. In this version, the plastic is all white, the inner straps are orange instead of cyan, and the Forge logo is absent.
- The Paintball Mask is the most expensive piece of gear with Comeback in Splatoon.
