3-man is all about aggression and firepower. There's not enough guns on the field to get all tactical, so you have to make up for that in other ways.

The video quality leaves something to be desired, but check out UAPL on YouTube. Pro teams playing 3-man arena ball a number of years ago.

Also, you can watch pro PSP games here. It has the full game as well as current and former Xball players giving commentary. It is a 5 man, but really is a great resource when you want to watch PB games and a bit more effective than just watching the game and trying to figure out what is going on.

Shoot at guys and make them stay in their bunker while you move

Make sure you packed your gear bag the night before, don't forget anything!!!!

In 3v3 it's vital to keep track of the kill count.

This. It would be great if your team tell out G1, G2, and G3 as you see each member of the opposite team being eliminated

Also, avoid straight on gun fights, try to cross it up and hit backs, necks, and packs.

Also, in a 3v3 it is really easy for your players to get separated and be isolated on the field. Try and stay in the bunkers which you can cover each other and work together.

Lastly, do you have the field layout?

As long as you guys play an communicate as a team you will go far. Players can win games, but teams win championships

You think the opponent hasn't worked his butt off on snap shooting as well? If every player on your team tries to have a snap battle you're going to walk home without a trophy.
No smart player gets in a gun battle with his mirror, a smart player catches the mistakes from the other team and capitalizes on them.
If you go into this playing orthodox paintball you aren't going to get very far.

Walk the field and look at blind shots, angles, etc.

I played in a 3-man tourney a month back and was playing d-side. I took advantage of the fact that the snake had a small spacing between bunkers and got several players out by shooting between the cracks.

Communicate. The worst thing is if you think all the opposing players are out, grab the flag only to get shot since there was still a player in..

Watch the other teams play if you have time. We always had good luck with having all three guns up and breaking extremely conservative. If you go up 3 bodies to 2 on the break you should be able to close it pretty quickly in 3 man.
