Tip for 1v1 snap shooting

When you gain dominance and are posted on the player squat down quickly til your gun is inches off the ground. Usually unless theyre a strong snap shooter wont notice that you arent at eye level anymore for a good 3 or 4 snaps and will occasionally try to post on you while youre waiting. And when they shoot down at you move to the top. It messes with there head because it adds one more variable to what they're doing.

Change everything you do... come out the right, come out the left, come out the left again, come out one more time, come out the right, come out the top, stay low, come out hight.... you get the idea

the more of a pattern you create, the more predictable you are... just make sure you dont do any one thing too often
God I love PBNation. it's like an online dating service for paintball players.

Sniping 101:
Step 1 - get closer
Step 2 - get closer
Step 3 -a little closer
Step 4 - I'm serious, just a tiny bit closer
Step 5 - bunker the pisss out of them

Unhappy Need help snap shooting

Hey guys I need help with my snap shooting. The other
day I was playing speed ball and was 1 on 1 with a
dude about 20 yards away. I was behind a large
horizontal pipe on the ground and he was behind a
large wall. He would pop out (full body exposed!) from
his right, I would pop up and shoot off 2 or 3 shots
then pop back down. The problem is that my shots went
every where but on the dudes body. AHHHHRRRR!!!!!....
I suck... I tried lining up before I'd pop out but
still...., I suck... Eventually I got marked on the
top of my head. What can I do to improve my accuracy?
I used to have a cocker with right feed and now I have
a timmy with vert feed. I think I did better with the
cocker since I could line up better before I shot.
Hmn... I donno... I'm going to the local bar now......

hey, if you just relax and take your time ull be a lot better snap shooting, if you freak out and try to hard your shot will be going every where, ull be more worried about getting shot than shooting the last guy

oh, and use a mirror as a bunker and snap shoot at yourself and make adjustments and try it again, youll look stupid but it works and ull be a lot better on the field

this is what you do. Poke your head out and see where he is and get back in. Keep in mind where he is by still looking at where he was through your bunker. Pretend your still looking at him. Put your barrel on his face. Then just start singing something from mozart. When he is confused and starting to get on his feet to come bunker your noisy a$$. pop out and put 2 in his face...eh?

do what i do to practice.. just take your gun and your hopper in your room... tape a couple things to the wall ( i use xbox games in teh case) and make yourself various types of bunkers and pop up from them and try to aim exactly at the target every time... also practice speed this way...

Rock The World.
