Welp I Play the snake and this is my Opinion.
Regardless of field layout.
I never cover my mask and I never look up. I pick the spot I wanna be and I look to the backside of it so my lens is away from the opposing side. I am also turned away as im running so that I am a thinner target. I run hard, Low, and Slide early. But my speed slidees me into safety. I acctually never been shot out on the way to the snake out of probably 50 runs this season. Im really fast but the angles help alot Ive taken 3 bounces due to my body angle.
Maybe if Im not so lazy this weekend ill record myself Running into snake and post it. Idk if it will help. Im kinda scrub myself. I just know I ALLWAYS make it there.
Also Make sure your gun is allways in your back hand. Running to the right side of the field Gun is in right hand left hand pointed at snake.
Once again this is all my OPPINION please noone try to grill me if I'm giving bad advice just quote and correct
But ill see bout getting that vid up to better explain angles.
