4 Man Advice, Anybody?

I will be in a 4 man soon and was wondering how to run the breakout? Where would people go?

How much paint does a 4 man go through?


Any insight would be great.

I've never heard of a 4 man.

My advice is play 5 man.

Play some 4-Man at your local fields first. If its a format that is popular or a major series is 4-Man. You'll find players willing to play it, and that's the best thing I can say. Play 4-Man learn what works and what doesn't. Don't just jump in blind.

I'm quiet aware which series you meant
Seriously though you have to get out and play 4-Man to learn how its played best. There are a lot of teams practicing for it.

You have to play smart and a bit more conservative than 5 Man, but you can bust out very aggressive very easily too if you scout well enough.
Most of the successful strategies have 3 guns up and one runner. or 4 guns up if your players are fast enough.

See you there!
our teams still working on stratigies and exactly how to play it. opening day at action packed we had some 4v4 games going and it was interesting how we really had to adjust to having one less (or more) player off the break

btw how good do these look/rank in the PB community. being 4 man thats not very popular and te air assault series its self

Never played a 4-man, although I have shot 4 people in a 3-man.

I'd suggest doing a "strong side", like going snake and snake corner. Lots of times few will go into the snake in a 3-man mainly because no one has their back.

I love 4-man. I suggest sending one guy, usually your fastest or strongest player to one tape line by himself, this should be the weaker tape. Then a back center guy to fill should you lose your solo guy. Then send the last 2 guys on whichever tape you plan on pushing. Allowing for a front guy to have the support of a back player.
