3 man pump tournament tips

Hi everyone,

This weekend on Saturday, two friends and I will be competing in 3 man pump tournament at supergame 40 in Oregon. I was wondering if anybody had any tips on strategy, tactics, or anything in general that might help us out. I've been told that it's a hyperball format field.

Thanks ahead of time!

Communication is the key to winning.

Make sure you and all your teammates use the same or similar lingo for the bunkers. Stand Up vs. Tall Can, Aztec vs. Pyramid ect.

Paint limit?

I always had one back guy, one front and one guy delay off break then bust up. Then again it all depends on field layout and what not.

Make sure all of your gear is in 100% working order. Hydrate and eat some food between games.

Practice and learn to shoot while running. It may sound stupid and like a common sense thing to someone who shoots a semi, but when you have to pump a ball in each time and get back on target, this can be quite a challenge. Everybody wants the one-shot kill or snapshot, but sometimes you gotta run a guy down, and missing him with every shot and getting shot in the face once you get there is a one way ticket into the World famous Hall of Shame

We've been playing speedball as a group for a while and developed some pretty good communication, thought there have been times where one guy calls it a tower, and another guy looks at a tall can.

From looking at the website, there's no indication that there's a paint limit, though my current marker is a stock class phantom, I might be able to borrow a feed neck adapter which would allow me to run a bigger hopper. I have had no trouble with the phantom or any of my gear so far. Also, most of the competitors will just have gotten done with the supergame, 7 hours of nonstop play.

Haha, I haven't had much luck with running and shooting yet, so i'll make a point to practice. I personally am trying to learn to shoot lefty as well. I started paintballing using a pump, so I'm pretty used to the rock and cock.

Keep a Good G count or Kill count.
Keep your gun up at all times.
Buy the best paint you can get for your favorite barrel.
Keep your hopper/elbow tucked in.
Dont Eat Junk previous night or that morning, or show up to a pump tourney hungover with 4hrs of sleep like me.

The first part is the truth, brother! The Rockstar method seems to fit me well. It seems like the harder I beat myself up the night before, the better I play. Look at oldschool Aftershock! They were my inspiration

Get to the field as early as possible and study every square inch of it. Hypberball fields have a lot of little nooks and crannys that can be very beneficial if you know how and when to use them.

Also, change up your game plan from time to time. Don't be predictable or people will catch on to you. Of course, sometimes a team will just figure out a field and dominate everyone all day. If that's the case for you, just stick to what works.

Some people say to keep your gun up at all times. If they mean, "be ready to shoot at all times," I agree with that. But if they mean "never stop shooting" , I don't agree with that. Sometimes in speedball I'll make it all the way to the center 50 without being seen. In those cases, sometimes I just lay low and don't shoot until I hear someone approach close by, and then I pop out and hit them when I hear them shooting at a teamate of mine. This works against overly aggressive players, because if they don't see someone shooting, they figure they're safe to move forward. So being quiet can be a strategy too. But if you try that, make sure the field has enough cover that you can actually make sneaky moves like that. Some fields are so open it makes stealth literally impossible...

Good luck!

have a good breakfast i.e. oatmeal......pack fresh fruit and stay away from energy drinks. pack food that will sustain energy. You will need it if you make it to finals. Mix up your gameplan throughout the day, but if something is working for you, stay with it until it no longer works or until your opponents catch on. Good luck.

make sure you and your teammates are always in a position to cross th e field. Crossing is big, esp if you drop a body, all you have to do is hold out and wait for a stupid aggressive move on their part.
