Strategy & Tactics

STRATEGY

In Paintball Game, either you play solo or free-for-all match, it is important to consider three strategic actions– Shield, Movement and Boldness. During your first several games these keywords will help you stay longer in the game.

Shield: Shield is very important part of the game, first cover yourself under a bunker, tyre or drum and help you to avoid getting hit. Try to avoid minimal cover and plan your movements from one post to another. Avoiding large and open spaces means your challengers must work hard to hit.

 

Movement: While taking shield it is important, not to stay at one post for longer duration, so keep moving on to next post. Remaining at one place for longer duration will make you bore and possibly allow your opponents to flank you. Advised to continue moving around, making sure to lay down on ground and fire against any approaching enemies.

 

Boldness: Boldness plays vital role in war zone, not having enough confidence will lead to a panicky situation that might get you hit. Similarly, overconfidence may lead to exposing yourself. Paintball may be a fast and active sport, but still is a game of strategy, not luck. Always check every direction and don’t make rash decisions.

Playing as a part of team requires cooperation and good communication skills. Depending on the type of game and strategy you may find yourself making some decisions to set a plan. So it’s good to get your team a team leader before starting the game.

 

TACTICS

Below are some tips that can be used to improve your game without charging any more than you already spend:

Tour of Field: Take a round of the field and make your own strategy, how to play and know the locations of best cover.

Don’t Try To Be The Hero: Paintball players have a tendency to want to be the star of the show and that often gets them into trouble. If you want occasional individual glory, feel free to try every game to win on your own. If, though, you actually want to win regularly, focus on teamwork and strategy.

Strategy: A good team strategy will almost win against opponents in any situation. Make sure you all work together and act according to your plan. This will never let you lose the game.

Communication: The more you communicate the better you will perform in the battle field. Communication will help you to keep track of opponent players on the field and this will help you to coordinate attacks.

Target Before You Fire: It is always advisable to aim your target before you shoot. Even it’s easy to fire lots of paintballs but that should shot into your target, after the first shot your opponent knows to move and have much smaller chance of getting hits….
