Pump in FIRST 3-Man Tourney?

Hey guys, I saw a thread similar to this, but I kinda could use some specific advice. My first tourney is coming up, and at the moment my only marker (besides an Azodin Kaos) is an AC Pump. Basically, I'm just curious about how I should play the game. I definitely feel like I should be trying to move so I can get closer, purely because I only have that one shot and I can't really lane. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks so much!

Move up the field as fast as you can. Shoot only if you have the shot. Keep your gun up. Keep your setup light, one pod, if not eliminating the pod pack entirely. Make sure your teammates communicate clearly.

Listen.

dont cary much paint. wear eclipse pants so you dont need a pod pack and make yourself small play tight and light and you'll be fine and listen to where people are telling you to shoot but only make your presence know when needed

From all us pump players... Ramping is unnecessary i can kill you with one shot... On the other hand YOU need 100

Thanks for all the advice. Do you guys think I should lane (or attempt to) off the break, or just run straight off?

You can run and gun, i would recommend that at first and then if it doesnt work just do what you gotta do to get there. but definitely put some fire down at first, otherwise theyll notice it and take advantage

Be aggressive and make smart moves. You dont want to play slow methodical paintball in a pump tournament.

If your in snake and see someone foot, but they don't see you. Don't shoot, slowly move up and get a better shot.

sorry but no...why wouldn't you shoot? is it really that hard to hit a foot? lol I shoot if I see as much as a finger.

But yes, make smart moves, and try to work on your angles.
Remember he's also using a pump in a semi event, if I am not mistaking. So shoot even when you dont see them, but expect them to come out on that side, and get lucky

Revy, 2-4 pods, an Auto Trigger and be aggressive. Don't worry about conserving shots; if you see any part of an enemy, you shoot at them.

Are you bringing a pump to an electro-ramping fight?
Or
Is this a pump tournament?

I find I never shoot of the break in pump speedball (even against electros) I try and gain as much real estate as possable in the first 5 seconds. Again repeating this.......play tight play smart, pick your shots, but do not play slow.

Sorry guys, I totally forgot about this thread. To answer some questions, yes, I'm going up on other electros. And just for a slight update, I've definitely used some of your guys's advice and gotten more used to playing pump against more firepower, so I'm feeling alot more confident (but still nervous). And towards the run n gun thing, we think we're going to have one of our guys staying home and throwing a lane at my side while I break for God or S1. Anyone tried anything similar?

Its important to realize that its very easy and important to move move move. If you just sit there your team will get owned. Enjoy it and watch the other teams and see what they do. Pump tournys are a BLAST!!
