a problem i see with newer refs is they're watching the game as if it's for their entertainment. you are there to scan your side of the field, dont get tunnel vision and watch just one guy, do a slow scan back and forth.

it helps to mention to the players before the games start that cheating will not be tolerated and we will all think youre a worthless fool if you decide to do so. possible cheaters may think twice...

Best way to catch someone playing on is to watch for players that make sharp fast movements like jumping/twitching when shot tucking quickly into their bunker. Because most players aren't fast enough to dodge a paintball.

Also I noticed that a lot of player that get shot and try hide the hit while a ref is near them watch the refs or stare at the closest ref to them

Twitching is common to people playing paintball but it doesn't always mean someone is shot out. It can also mean they took a bounce so be aware that if they got shot in the leg and twitched you should still check to see if there was any paint in the area of where the twitched. Also some people who get shot in the hopper try to smear the paint off by reloading and then sliding their hand against the hit as if they were just closing there hopper lid.

I normally don't wipe at all, ever. But i've played hundreds of times and i have played on a few times, and have wiped a few times. I don't in tournaments, but in practice if i get hit of the break in the leg or arms where i slide on i'll play on with that. I don't ever take the time to use my hand and wipe off a hit. Now, i'm probably one of the more honest players out there.

I've seen a lot of cheating and it bothers me how blatant some of it is. My advice, check the "how to cheat" thread here on nation. figure out what their doing and take note, watch for those actions. You can't catch everything, but you can get a lot. It's just hard when you have only one or two refs to a game, they can't see everything that is going on. You just gotta deal with it in practice or rec play, but in tournaments a good amount of refs should be watching.

trying to watch every players move to determin if they are cheating will not work, you will miss everything else going on during the game. A ref needs to be game aware so that he can make intelligent calls.
if this is a small event, during the captains meeting state firmly that cheating will not be tollerated. Penalties will be assessed and cheaters will cost their team the game. Be firm, and direct about it. Stand by your call - if you pull a penality for a cheating player and they argue, send them to the deadbox, if they continue to violate rules, pull another penalty. Is this harsh? too bad they are rules...

Pick up a lens where players cant see your eyes.
Have your head "looking" towards one player but accually be watching another.

I have reffed mutiple small tournies and what we usualy do is have the crowd help. Refs cant see everything but someone outside may see what the ref dose not. When im reffing if i have a friend or family member there and they arnt reffing I ask them to spot for me and if they see somthing yell it out. I know some feilds dont like it and its got me in troble at some places. I personaly think that if someone see's something then they need to tell the ref even if they are not playing or another ref
