Make use of paintball squads to win the game!

 Paintball is a rough sport but it is not always a physical game; more often, it is a mind game. While physical fitness and strength matters, a good strategy will also make or break your game.

One of the most effective ways of playing paintball is to make use of squads; achieve this by dividing the paintball players into squads. A squad is a group playing to achieve a common objective and preferably made up of not more than six members. It is best if the squad members are disciplined and are quick in their physical movements. If possible, each squad member should be briefed on the team’s specific objective and must be advised how each member can help achieve this goal.

Each squad member must realize that their movements are important to the team. Slow movement can be an asset when the enemy is near. Learning how to hide is also important to avoid getting hit by paintballs. However, what is more important about learning how to hide is that by doing it, the chances that you will be seen or fired upon by the enemy is diminished. A relative distance of at least five yards between squad members will make it more difficult for the enemy to see you.

One of the most important traits in playing paintball is patience. Members of the paintball squad must not only use their physical agility to win the game, but more importantly their minds to make use of strategies that will help them win over their opponents. They must also learn to coordinate with each member to avoid being detected by their enemies. The team must be informed that it is best for the squad to fire as a group, making sure that each member is in the right position before firing.

Squad members should support the other members who are being fired at by firing back; especially when they are in a better and more strategic position to do so.

The most important thing is that the squad knows that they are playing for the team and that coordination and team work will be a deciding factor in winning the game. Remember, more heads, rather guns that are firing as one, are better – especially in paintball.

Whatever you do, play as a team and you will certainly have the advantage over your enemies. .

Paintball Game Sneak Attack Tactics: Sneaky Ploys

paintball weatherSince its inception, paintball has remarkably developed into a global spectacle. Nearly 9.6 million players have participated in the game since 2004.

Its popularity continues to proliferate thereby making it the third place overall “Most Popular Extreme Sport in the World” list. This is based on the statistical reports of the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association International in 2005.

Along with its growing popularity are the various tactics that every player must learn in order to win the game. This is so important because, by nature, paintball is a conglomeration of strategy, techniques, skills, and ability to stimulate the mind to think fast and accurate.

In spite of the many tactics that the experts create in order to help players win the game, the sneak attack approach remains the most reliable method in obtaining victory over the opponents. This is because the object of the “sneak attack tactic” is to hit the opponent furtively and sneakily.

To those who want to know how this particular ploy can be executed, here is a list of some tips:

  1. Be cool:

    With this kind of tactic, your basic goal is to hit the other player without letting him know that you are even in the area. Once you have spotted your opponent, do not immediately shoot; try to relax a little and aim with your best shot.

    Do not move. Movement can only imply presence. Do you not spot your opponent because of his movements? If you do the same, chances are, he will be able to see you as well.

  2. Wait for the perfect timing:

    In case you have seen your opponent but the distance between you and your opponent is great, then, it is best to stay calm and quiet.

    The idea here is to wait for your opponent to come into your reach; because if you try to shoot early and miss, you might as well come out in the open and tell your opponent to shoot you.

  3. Fire at will:

    If in case your opponent was able to sense that you near, do not hesitate to start firing. You will have better chance of aiming at and hitting your target because you were the first one to spot him.

  4. Sneak attack works best for people who think before they act. Any madcap will never get any further. The bottom line of this approach is to aim more accurately in order to shoot without letting the other person know you are there.
