Kind of had one of those experiences a few weeks ago at Pevs. I, my cousin and a couple friends went out to play some open rec. I was dressed in my normal "that guy" clothing as it was too hot. I just wore my PE pants and a sleeveless tshirt. My cousin has the Dyecam gear. Too hot for the shirt he just wore the pants, a tan tshirt and the Dyecam vest. Nothing too "that guy-ish". On his goggles though he has the Contour cam mounted on the side.
So as we are starting the day i hear some random say, "(laughing) Look! That guy has a camera on his goggles. Imma shoot that right off his head". Clearly he had been labelled "That Guy" for the day. Told me cousin who didn't take too kindly to that. Actually went up to the ref and told him "(pointing vehemently) You see that guy right there! Yeah that guy! Please make sure you put him on the other team! We're no arm bands. Put him on armbands side. That guy right there!"
The day ended with my cousins cam going home fully intact and that dude that tried to single him out not even coming close to being any sort of threat on the field. They even spoke in jest at one point where my cousin told him, more or less, "Yeah I heard you were going to shoot my camera off....Good luck with that".

Honestly when i first started playing we had a guy named chris who would overshoot everyone on the field with his maxed up e-cocker...if you even attempted to shoot him more than once he would start screaming and cussing...ofcourse i found this hilarious...What made it more funny was he was playing a tounry against my old team and we basically rolled all guns his side off the break destroying him lol....He got so pissed throwing his brand new etek at a bunker.....Screaming and threating my guys...he was that "Guy" for my whole team....
Gotta love those guys. They can overshoot you but don't you dare overshoot them. God forbid you shoot a stream at them and the first one hits...smh...they expect you to somehow rundown the remaining balls flying through the air at almost 200mph and stop them from hitting him too LOL

And Yes!!!! I've been told, "Yo you know it don't take all that right" (when rolling my gear bag to a staging area),"You wearing a jersey in the woods *laughter* You are going to be easy to find" and then all the funny looks for wearing paintball specific clothing. Such a shame. But they never have anything to say when the day is done, they're going home in welts and paint and I'm not.

I don't mind that. I would too. We didn't take it as disrespect but found it funny. Like a situation of, "Oh worrrdd??? So the game hasn't even started yet, you're still on line paying admission and you are singling me out? Really now?!?! Okay.....Let's Go!!!" LOL

We are the same way. Pushing the pace. Always up front. Seems the ones who want to talk the most trash are always the ones hiding out in back hoping for that lucky shot.

Yeah when I see them I always say "hey man, no disrepect meant, but you know I'm gonna be trying to shoot that all day now, right?". Usually we just both laugh, and go about our day.

Even with first strike rounds, if you suck, you suck. Just ask free enterprise.

one weekend i played "that guy" was there. he had some limited edition bob long and couldnt stop talking about it. so we get to the field, and all he does is quickly run up to some tree and lay down ropes on everyone. now, if someone starts shooting 15bps at me i gladly switch to ramping myself to try and even the field a bit, but what are the rentals supposed to do? i wish my field would put an end to these guys and say semi only

I watched a "that guy" video on youtube recently. Dude titles the video to draw attention to the fact that he has a Luxe 1.5. First 50 secs of the video he looks like he is going to make some serious moves but then stops short and proceeds to spend the next 9 minutes sitting in the exact same spot firing shots off at God knows what until he is finally shot out

Oh dear LAWD that was me... with my first marker: PMI Piranha BL, I believe. The BL stood for "BottomLine," because the basic Piranhas didn't even come with one

Well, I figured I'd be a "sniper," being that I was a military crazed 18 year old, so I bought one of them, there fancy 21" CMI Thunderpig "3-piece" "tru-flight" rifled barrels. My first outing and all the young guns were in awe (I'm serious) while a few of the older guys just kinda shrugged.

This was about 10 years ago, now, so the nicest gun at the field was an e-cocker, but the barrel was decent, though it didn't make me shoot any farther or more accurate than a spyder-clone would normally shoot. /le sigh

I wouldn't say I was "that" guy, but I was very close to being him. In fact, that reminds me of a "That guy" story from the very same day... My best friend had a brief TG moment when we were lounging between games, flirting with the girl that was helping run the show. She was cute, and flirting back with me, so I dropped $2 in the tip jar. My friend came over and wanted to buy a gatorade, but only had a dollar, so he reached in, picked out the $2 I had just tipped her, and paid for the drink. I almost punched him.

Hmm...I have to say your "that-guy" in the OP is someone who I can't stand.
Another "that-guy" I don't like is the know-it-all old-timer who plays by cheating, or just sits in the staging area the whole time, never really playing a game. I've seen quite a few of these at my field (I know someone is going to pick on me about this, but honestly I could care less about your personal opinion on a factual presentation of my observations.), they sit in the picnic area with a $1200 gun and full Dye gear, but never get out to play, or play one game, get spanked (or wipe like a windshield wiper to avoid getting spanked) and then retreat back to their corner of the staging area and put up a defensive wall of big talk.

Hee hee, I'm going to get so flamed for this one...
Noah

A recent outing gave me an opportunity to meet "that guy"
Played recball that day as the speedball field was pretty crowded and just wanted to have an easy day and kick back.

Anyway, a small group comes by (mostly friendly) with the exception of one. He was pretty quiet and didn't talk much.
I noticed him with his black/orange outfit to match his gun - Luxe (which is fine). Dude was playing on ramp against rentals as a walk on.

I didn't think much and continued to play on semi. Anyway in one game (woodsball), I and 2 other guys take the left side. I am in front of them with one to my left. We shoot out 2 and I notice "that guy" firing at us. he proceeds to just ramp to the guy behind me and I hear him clearly say "out". Needless to say he got +10 more balls after he said "out".
I kept it quiet as I knew he didn't know I was there. When he decides to walk and ramp to the right side of the field, that is when I popped out from behind the bunker and shoot him 3 times (2 belly, 1 mouth part of mask). So what does he do??? Jumps behind a bunker. I give him benefit of doubt and give him 4 seconds but peek out and fire two more (hitting his back) - not much of a bunker. He finally calls himself out and walks to the left.
Few seconds later as I'm behind my bunker, he walks behind me, puts his hand on my should and says something like "Yo, you don't have to shoot me so much" in an irritated/stern voice and walks away.

Needless to say, I bunker the last guy on their team shooting him once and shout in his direction, "is that good enough for you?"
I really wanted to also say, "how does my paint taste?" while he was cleaning the paint from his chin.
I kept an eye out for him the rest of the day and made sure I was the one to get him out.
