The usual good ones are:

-Play against teams much better than you repeatedly
-Communicate EVERYTHING until it becomes second nature. If you're in Snake 2 and hungry for a sandwich, your teammates better all know it.
-Stop, and think. So many rookies are eager to make a big move and they end up not thinking and messing up. Play what you're told to play and do what you're told to do.

snap shooting over and over and over and over and over and over and so on man. The point of this and battling as a whole is to combat the opposin guy so YOU can get the post man. So YOU dont have to battle for your spot. Also, you have to, when u practice snapping, do the one one ball check drill. Have one guy (at LEAST 30 feet away) posting up on you. He must be EXTREMELY tight so its even harder for you to hit him. Each time you come out, you are shooting ONE ball man. THATS it. DO NOT get in the rythm of snapping in the same spot everytime, OR using the SAME rythm over and over, as he will be able to bait you and predict when you are coming out. Remember, not only is snapping about taking back the post you need, but ALSO, battles should be usually at the MOST 5 times coming out. You want to be so accurate that you hit the guy on the third time out AT LEAST. IF YOU CANNOOOOTTTTT do that, then you better be so damn accurate, that in the first few shots, you are missing him by about an inch. With that, you will scare him, and you can take the post. HOWEVER, remember that even if u can do this, it is never good enough. You wanna be able to take that guy OUT ASAPPPPP. NOT just take the post. While that may be a good thing, wouldnt it be better to just get him out while you're at it.

Trust me, even if you cannot practice with your buddy sometimes, practice with an extremely small target, such as a baseball, or hell, even something as small as HALF the size of a pokemon card. If you can hit those things nonstop almost everytime, as no one is perfect, can you imagine the damge you can do when gun battling on the field? A persons proflie, no matter how tight, will always be begger than a baseball haha.

Take my word, if there's one thing in the game I am very strong in doing, it is gun battling. There's a shooting range in the back of my field. About 25 feet away there is a softball hanging form the ceiling. I can hit that baby up to 4 times in a row. Once I miss one or rarely two, I get right back on it. The most Ive hit the thing I a row is 8 times. That says something. Its an extremely useful skill.

Anyway, thats JUST snapping for you. Nobody can master ANY skill, but I have honed this one to my liking and am STILL ALWAYS going to work on it. You can never have enough practice man. Never

But I heart my pm7 ;)

"Please keep your arms and legs inside the field at all times. Failure to cooperate with these instructions may result in injury,death, or worse, ejection from the field."

COMMUNICATION, i promise you, unless you guys are superhumans, you will never win without communication. And playing against people in a higher division is key. You cant get respect and wins without getting your **** kicked in by someone much better than you, good luck.

dont battle!!! move and get those side shots why risk a 50/50 battle when you can bump once and shoot both guys in the side or back??
back players lock your lanes and mids fill important spots
when it come down to it cross it up send 2 snake one on tape one in with the corner looking tape aswell never put to guns on the same part one gun pointing every where!!
al ways know what your job is!! dont go onto the field with out a game plan and not knowing your job

find the layout that day walk fields wwrite down and number all bunkers on the layout paper and see what has what shots find which side to consetrate on

need more pm me lol

Communicate. I can't stress it enough, our team had horrible communication our first tourney, and we got last. Our next 8 practices all we did is communication drills and we got first and the second event, it makes that much of a difference. The only other thing is be aggressive, but not so much so that you're not thinking. Good luck.

Cheap practice?

- Get in good with a local field and get some cheap practice time in return for helping at the field.

- Buy paint in bulk to save cash

- Snapshooting and communication drills won't take nearly as much paint

- Use reball if it's available

- Practice your breakouts a few times without any paint in your gun (just roll the triggers) before you try them with paint

you can do drills as easy as setting up a target and taking about 6 steps back and foward from it while aiming at the target with ur marker move back 6 steps,switch hands,go foward,repeat...

cheap practice

as said before field owners like myself love to help out local players and teams as it helps our business too. find a field owner that is willing to let u mess around on a slow day. have someone call some fields and see what kind of response you get..

back players- laning drills,and communication.
mids- shooting on the run(off break) snapping, communication.
fronts- running eyes up looking for streams, snapping, snapping, snapping, communication.

i also agree that communication is learned in games. alot of people can scream positions. what most people have a hard time with is hearing in the heat of battle. i know that was the hardest thing for me.

but i am a 100% sure scrimmaging is the most important. you can run all the drills you want but if you cant work as a team in the trenchs you will lose! scrimmaging is all the drills combined in one. and always make it hard as possible! start 2 down. have everyone on the other team lane while your fronts and mids break out. stress running eyes up. set yourselves up for failure at practice and hopefully you will run out of failure at the tourny.
Well yes... Those are my balls on your face.

30 second games are good. works on basically everything. breakouts, laning, running, sliding, getting into your bunkers clean, taking gun dominance, maintaining that dominance. snapping. and it doesnt use a ton of paint. usually a pod. just have someone always on the sidelines to call it at 30 seconds.

its a great way to learn field layouts as well. you learn what lanes to shoot, and what bunkers you can break. what you cant. easy bumps. things like that...
