It looks like that apeture saved us from seeing a dude without a shirt, he did focus on the bunker to the right too for some reason.

One other helpful hint to add in. If you can get ahold of one pod worth of reballs, you can practice loading until it becomes second nature. I'll happen naturally anyway, but that will speed it along fast.

Haha, nice work man, I like all these how to's

One thing though, I think you meant keep in mind

But whats next? I was going to say Diving/Sliding, but I think you should start with the basics like this, and then move up to more advance things such as diving/sliding

Excellent guide. Wish it was available with all the times I spend in my room practicing gunning and loading. Lots of trial and error...lots

and i find that hard to believe that this statement is correct

and another great thread. but on the speed feed topic, not everyone likes using speedfeeds (me being one). but if you are looking for a cheap way to find out if you like it or not, ask to borrow a hopper with one on it, or go on paintballgateway.com because you can find them in the deals thing for $1.

no offense...but you might be getting to excited...

distance has a lot to do with it...know your layout...Ive missed many guys but caught them on the over slide...

The execution is the same but like you said just at a smallert gauge, you'll have to place your shots farther infront of your target to compensate for your lower fps. A stream is not required to eliminate an opponent, only one ball is.

Btw Great job KK

definitely will help the new players, really good presentation of the whole thing.
but one thing i have noticed with experience is always having to fumble with your pod looking for the tab to pop the lid, so before the game starts i turn my pods where the tab is on the outside (right side pointing right, and left side pointing left)
this might not work for all people but how i reach my thumb always lands right on the tab and i dont waste any time looking for it but great thread dude

Hmm, thats weird. I don'tcare where the tab is, I don't even remember fumling for it. Loading to me is all impulsive, I don't remeber much about it, how i do it, and I don't think about it while I'm doing it. I think loading comes with experience.
