BleedingColors781's All-Purpose Paintball Tactics Manual

I write in a notebook. Some of this is noobish, some of it isin't.

Subject to be edited.

I figured I'd share a few of the formations & tactics I've picked up over the years..Most can be used in any setting, but some are specific. I'll be updating this every week or so. Let me know whether you found this helpful, hurtful, whatever . I'd like to know, pbnation.

1. Notes
- Woodsball
- Fort/Building DEFENSE
- Fort/Building OFFENSE
- (Soon to come)

2. Tactics (Pics!)


Notes (Specific)
(Specific-field notes I've jotted down after successes & failures.)

Woodsball.

- Out of range does NOT equal out of sight.
- Flanking is your friend.
- Never go alone. Ever.
- When outgunned, (5v3, etc.), draw fire!*
- If there's nobody around, look 360 degrees twice.
- Read the enemy, act accordingly. (Sun Tzu?)
- 9,001 bps < Accuracy
- You're not going to get hit.

(cont.)

- With no info, assume EVERY area is hostile.
- Keep moving! Always!
- Your gun can be where your eyes can be. NO looking without firing and NO blind firing!
- When outmaneuvered, suppressive fire!*
- They might not be shooting at you.
- Never position a team 1/3R, 1/3M, 1/3L (Third-third-third = Fail)
- Only go lone wolf if you can face the pack yourself.
- It's 90% mental.

Fort/Building DEFENSE.

- Cover all points of entry. (P.O.E.)
- High ground, windows, strong sides (Force Multipliers! [Google it])
- Don't longball.
- Beware the Bait and Hook (Assessed later in the post)
- Note where players [on both sides] get eliminated.
- Plan a retreat. If no retreat...Kamikaze?
- Surrounded = BAD [Intelligent, I know ]
- DO NOT stay at 1 post (1 window, door etc.)
- Too quiet = Too dangerous!

Fort/Building OFFENSE.

- If you can't eliminate an enemy, scare them!
- Higher the suppressor/runner ratio = higher success rate!
- Get rid of all perimiter defense before entering.
- Focus on 2 or more points of entry. 1 will not work [depends on field].
- Out of paint? Congradulations, you are now bait. (E.x. BAIT & Hook.)
- Dry Firing = Good last resort. Scares noobs.
- Make 2 people seem like 10 people. Moving + Force Multipliers = Win


Tactics! (General + Specific)

Tactic 1: Flanking!



Notice how Red Team moves the majority of its players to 1 side of the field, but Green Team sprinkles their players into a loose perimiter defense.


Tactic 2: Counter-Flanking!



The Green Team flanks (Poor them..), But the Red Team sets up a zone of fire on the area the Green Team is flanking!


Tactic 3: Pinching!



The Blue players overwhelm the Green player in the top-left rather than going against both 50/50. Keep an eye on the oblivious green player! He's your next target.


Tactic 4: Bait & Hook!



Textbook case of "drawing fire". [There are MANY variations of this.] The Blue player on the right acts first as a distraction, and then as a sacrifice, while the left Blue player easily bunkers the Green players without resistance.


Tactic 5: Spray & Pray! [Sort of]



Pretty obvious here. Blue man sprays the hell out of green so they duck, (notice the 2v1) and the other Blue man moves up to bunker them, or hold more ground.


Tactic 6: Arabian Retreat [Works wonders when outnumbered]



Blue team's getting pinched! Looks like it's time to retreat. While Green Team is chasing after "easy" targets, Blue has already got a trap set up for them. This is MUCH more effective than just a plain old 50/50 chance firefight.


Tactic 7: Ghost Armies [A personal favorite]



The concept of this tactic is rather cut-and-dry: the theory is, if you fire and move, while another person moves and fires (1 fires, 1 moves always) it will make a few people seem like a LOT more to the untrained eye (not many eys in paintball are trained ). This utilizes a concept called Force Multiplying. Google it.


Tactic 8: Leapfrogging [A.k.a. Cover Me!]



This tactic goes hand-in-hand with #7. The back man covers the front man while he advances - the front man then does the same. Repeat until victory. . This may be compared to Spray-And-Pray..S&P is meant as a last-resort, desperate attempt to throw 100's of paintballs, forcing the other team to duck, so one man may advance. Leapfrogging is done quickly and efficiently, when done silently it is a deadly basic tactic. All paintballers should learn this one, if only one, in my opinion.


More notes coming soon!

Hope y'all like..I'm not done.
