Anyone ever have a failure but still play on?

Well this weekend I was playing at my local rec-ball field. I'm so pumped with adrenaline right now because it's the last game. So I start off running into the big ball room, sliding head first into the X. I poke up for a second to see where the people are, and I raise my gun to shoot. Poof then *BEEEEP*, my hopper ran out of Batteries! With no rip drive I layed down took my hopper off and put 1 ball in at a time and shooting... Kind of like pump, but wayy slower. After this I get sick of this one-shot junk so I lay my gun down and tell my friend to go to the left of me and shoot the people who try to get me. So we advance to the next bunker and I just jump up and wave my hands for 3 seconds and then fall down.My friend shoots and yells your out to the person shooting at me! My friend got a kill off of it but that was the last kill of the game. It was funny we laughed over it.

Tl;Dr:Hopper ran out of batteries so I was a human distraction.


So my Q is, have you ever had a tech. failure and still played on?

Well yeah. Just because your gun goes down doesn't mean you're useless. What I do when my hopper breaks or whatever is hold a pod over my feedneck and shoot with one hand and hold the pod with the other.

one day, a ball broke in my barrel... went to squeegie it, and the squeegie came apart, so half was in my barrel, and half was in my hand... had to unscrew the front, and play with just the back of my UL... got 2 kills too... we won that game...

hopper died during a big game... i switched to pump for the rest of the day...

never a battery issue, i always make sure my batteries are good to go BEFORE i get on the field...

In rec play I can understand dropping out when your marker dies. But in a tourney, you had better stay in until you get shot out. Distract the other team, go for the flag, whatever.

my loader was filled with broken shells after a dive, playing pump with a 50 round hopper is beautiful like that because i just jammed a 10round tube into the feedneck and kept playing.

And another time, me and my church all went to pb, and it was only me, and the bassist (kinda old) and he ran out of paint right next to me, and I could see the last 2 or 3, so I was like, just dry fire, draw their attention, and I went around, and got em out...all thanks to him having no paint.

Last weekend, my Vlocity ran out of battery power mid-game. (It feeds fine until the batteries are dead - and then it's just that - dead.) I was in a gunfight when it happened, and I had to clean my gun and feedneck to even be able to shoot. The bottom half of my hopper was full of paint goo. Meanwhile, my fiancee took over battleing the guy. After a couple minutes, I had the gun and barrel clean enough to shoot with, and I put my remaining clean paint in my pocket, and left my hopper there. So I backed up (this was a woodsball field), and moved over to the right, and crawled up to a tree that was between our opponent and us. When I got to the tree, I snapped out and shot the guy out. That ended the game.

Play without a gun on purpose, it will make you much better.

I am proud to say I have bunkered someone with a handful of paint when my hopper went down.
