Post Tactics

I've observed over the years that paintball tactics is ever evolving. nowadays if you have a semi auto marker and try to go play showdown with speedballers your gonna lose, but if you can out maneuver them, are accurate, and stealthy, you'll win every time. woodball put speedballers at a disadvantage as they are used to look only in one direction, woodsballers can look everywhere at once, and if you dont know where you just got hit from, nay nay.

Re: Tactics

I don't know about winning everytime but it does work as long as you can get a few shots in between the walls of paint.

Re: Tactics

Judicious use of smoke (on fields that allow it) to obscure their view helps as well.

Re: Tactics

I've been playing almost exclusivly stock class for the last couple of years against whomever was on the other side of the field. Learning to "Snap shoot" well was what seemed to be my antidote for speedballers heavy on the trigger.

Kind of along the lines of what xrated said above me, fast snap shots combined with the low profile of a phantom or now a TPX works really well.

Re: Tactics

From what I've seen getting a good run in the start will almost always get you the win, let's you get up on the other team a lot faster and start firing

Re: Tactics

Snap shooting is a super important skill that is often overlooked and not practiced. play with a pistol for a while and you will be forced to learn quite quickly.

Re: Tactics

Pack light and move fast. I used to play with a stock-class Phantom at rec fields against the kids with the fancy electro-of-the-day markers. I find that not being where they expect is key.

But if you like Tactics, speedball isn't really the place to be; get to the woods!

Re: Tactics

I'm not one to hate on people but everything you just said is wrong about speedballers (directed at thread maker). Speedballers do not tend to look in only one direction as a good speedballer will be dealing with many targets at the same, thus having to avoid getting tunnel vision.

Speedballers tend to be better players, regardless of the field. They are better because they use gear better suited for paintball and is capable of greater firing rates and is more consistent. They wear less gear so they can move faster. They play more often and thus are better at the things necessary to be good at paintball.

Don't forget a lot of the better speedballers practice a lot. You don't have to be a speedballer to practice though. Work on your gun skills. As already said, good snapshooting is very important. Look on youtube for drills. There are things you can do in your backyard to help your game. Another thing I have been working on and many speedballers are good at is running with your gun up and shooting on the move. If you move and put your gun down, it makes shooting you easier. If you move with your gun up and someone starts to shoot at you, you can easily shoot back. I do this at home by putting an orange cone on the ground about 60-70 feet away. Then I start shooting the cone moving side to side and towards it. Being able to accurately shoot in the move will definitely improve your game!
