Phoenix layout? That's a giant field for 3-man.

Strategy really depends on your team and its strengths. If you've got little fast guys you want to break aggressive and take ground. If you've got slower guys with good gun skills, you want to take lockdown bunkers and battle/lane the other team out.

As for the snake, it can be a liability in 3-man because you have fewer guns up and rolling. It's best to play on your feet until you are up in bodies. Snake it good for closing out games in 3-man but wait until you are up on bodies.

Ok thanks. I know its big but its for a tourney. I also heard that its better to play more conservative not aggressive in 3 man. Is this true?

That's purely dependent on what your players are capable of. Push hard and adjust as needed. If playing aggressively doesn't work out, slow it down.

in 3 man theres a time to play aggressive and a time to play conservative. in most games, the team that loses a player first will lose the game. so you have to be really smart on your breakouts, and try really hard to shoot one of them early. if you lose a player first, take up the corners (if you can) and cross up the field. gun fight and try to even it out. if they lose a player first, especially on the tape, start swarming on them.

this past weekend my team would come out 3 guns up, try to get an elimination early, and then move up and shoot the last 2. keep the guns rolling the whole time.

In 3-man bodies alive generally counts for a substantial number of points though rules vary from series to series. Also losing a person really hurts because it can mean that an entire side is blown.

You gotta be aggressive as well though because you only have 3-min to close out a game. As strategy that has worked really well for us is to go with a relatively safe break out with lots of guns up and then start pushing as soon as we get a kill.

If you want to do well, have your team practicing laning off break and gun battles. The trick is to take someone early in the game by laning or winning a gun battle and then start pushing.

Our team just played a 3 man, and we did not do many aggressive breaks. We played it safe with minimum 2 guns rolling off the break.

There are 2 schools of thought here...

This.

...or the opposite of that. I've seen it work both ways. It really does depend on what you're guys are good at. My team was better at the aggressive breakouts, we could get outside on less aggressive teams and smash them. If we tried to play conservative we lost. In three man you don't have the bodies to try and do it both ways, you're either going to be conservative and grind your games out, or you're going to be aggressive and smash other teams down.

Basically you want to get an idea what you can and can't do by looking at the layout online or taking suggestions here, then flesh out those ideas when you finally get a chance to walk the fields and actually see the setup before the event. A lot of teams can come up with a "winning strategy" on paper, but once you see how the field is actually laid out, your plan might be shot in the ***, or you might see something even better.

The break will always be crucial, you've got to set your breaks(several of them) when you walk the field and then you absolutely have to execute them if you expect to perform. You might draw up the best play for that field, but if you guys are afraid to go 100% and execute it won't amount to a damn thing.

The best overall strategy I've seen is to have a good break, and play it smart until they drop a body. When you get that first elimination, press the advantage and get aggressive.

My teams strategy is to shoot all 3 of the other players. Seems to work pretty well for us.
