Snake Playing Help!!

Hey guys. I've recently gotten the position of snake player on a team. I practiced with everyone and I need some help. I need tips.
when i played i think i did good. I was agressive, and stayed low. What i found hard was getting yo a position where i can aim and keep my self on the ground low enougght to not get shot. This is a problem with muscle and awkward positioning.
I need tips on:
Sliding
Bunkering
Positioning
Everything else about playing snake lol

The best thing is to find out when some upper division players are going to be at a local field and see if they will teach you. Its hard to provide advice on skills without visual help.

I think the best thing for a snake player or any other player for that matter is to strengthen your core muscles. Everyone knows how demanding it can be to be in the snake crouched as low to the ground as possible with gun up ready to shoot.

Skooter is right. Watching people will help. Look at YouTube videos of pros in snake.

Play the whole snake!! People think cause theres knuckles they have to move all the way up to them. There are shots from the start of the snake all the way down. Ive played a little snake in my days and everytime I play the whole thing, I get plenty of kills. You need to find whats comfortable for you though when it comes to staying out and firing. There are many different ways. My way could be horrible for you while someone elses is perfect. Just find whats comfortable and works and as a snake player you gotta listen to the rest of your team and know your bunkers. In a way you have the most playable position cause of how many angle you can get, so knowing where the bunkers are you can capitalize on positions the other team is at when your team calls them out. Practice will only make you better and be prepared to trade out and get bunkered a lot but that's paintball.

you should do this with any bunker if youre clear though. That's just common playing knowledge

Shoot with your gun at your waist (more accurate) run into snake every game running and gunning. Make sure to shoot 12 pods a game and blind fire.

But on a serious note playin snake an getting comfortable in it helps alone, you can always watch but almos every point/team is different so you can't always follow a certain way
