What to do when you have no paint?

I was playing and I ran out of paint many times, I left my pods at home.

I play one game with the surrender rule, and all I did was run up and say surrender sometimes I get shot before I get there.

I then play with bunkering, and I had no paint, what do I do?

Talk to teammates, draw fire by running around in the back and snapping out. You are no good being dead.

play tight in your bunker and call out positions. Even though a player may not have any paint they can still be very useful during a game. Or if you guys are in a bad situation run to snake and stay down this will attract the other teams attention and there attention will be on you and one of your teammates can go and shoot them in the back.

Like I said you can still be very useful even with no paint. And like suggested it may not work when trying it with experienced players but try surrendering someone half the time it may work and well the other half you will get light the **** up who knows its worth a try.

Lol oh and one more thing this is kind of a last resort type of thing but if your team is damn near desperet (SP) what you can do (hopefully you still have some air left) Is go try to go and bunker someone if you make it without being shot aim at there pack and dryfire if you guys trade shots tell him you shot him in the pack and the overwhelming confrontation you guys are having in the middle of a game half of the time he will just get out.

And when he checks and sees no hit he has no one to blame but himself. Because no one can really check a pack-shot because you can't see Like I said it is a very very last option and somewhat dirty thing to do but its legal so.

Ask a teammate for a pod of paint, run around in the back making a distraction, or just run down the middle of the field screaming and shooting.

dryfire, if your in a tournament, go to the fifty and grab the flag, because thats point the other team doesnt get, or if its already been grabbed, just dont get hit, and basicly coach your team while not getting hit

yeah just play tight and call out positions, thats the best thing you can do, at the very least you're getting the other teams attention off of your teammates. The best thing you can do is just stay in be smart, call positions and take advantage of opportunities to grab the flag or whatnot.

if it's a tourney, u can't dry-fire cos u'll need to turn the eye off. And that will warrant u an "out" call.

We just had this situation that day at the World Cup Asia and one of our front players did the funniest thing, he picked up a pellet from the field. Immediate out. LOL.

Those are some funny rules

In the US you can turn your eyes off and shoot, the only thing is guns sound different when you dry fire so only inexperienced players would be fooled.

What I do when I run out of paint is:

1. Communicate
2. Draw fire
3. Pick up paint off the ground and shoot it. I did it at Huntington beach and many other events. Nothing better than picking up paint off the ground and killing someone with it.

Oh, and one little trick. If you squeeze the tip of your barrel into the bunker (like 50% across the end of the barrel) it'll sound a lot closer to how a loaded marker sounds.

Try that if you have to dryfire to scare people. One you'll be tight to the bunker, two it'll fool a few more people. It's true you'll never fool really experienced people, but it'll help.

look on the ground for loose balls (alot of people loose a few balls when they reload, so why not use it?) ive ran out of paint and picked up a couple balls and shot people a few times.

you could call out positions or which bunkers are hot, jus keep your body from being hit...or you could be a bait and let the other team waste their paint on you so your teammates can push forward with out being shot at..

turning your eyes off lets you dryfire because if the eyes are on and they dont see paint theres no firing
