Fallen in Paintball

Have any of you guys fallen in paintball especially at the break??? I've seen ppl fall all the time and usually take my time and drag them out of the way. I fell last week and I turn all red I dont know if anyone saw.

I've fallen once and even my mask came off and the other teams player stopped playing to make sure I had my mask on before they continued the game. I had used the board's base as a block and had pushed off so hard I stumbled and my mask some how had came loose and started coming off so I had reached to pull it back on and before I knew it I was on the ground and my mask had flown about 6 ft away and I had to reach up to cover my face just to make sure no paint balls were gonna hit my face. First time trying that move and now I know not to push off so hard.

I have many times. The most recent I was the last man standing in rec ball, so i decided running to loop around the tape for better angles was a good idea. While I was running I didn't look down and tripped right over a stump and faceplanted. Thankfully the other team didn't even shoot me b/c they were laughing too hard, I just surrendered and walked off laughing with them.
At another game, we were flanking through some very heavy brush and had a few walk ons with us, one of which was a very heavy guy (probably about 400 lbs) who got his pants stuck on a thorn bush, fell flat on his face and took a nice core sample w/ his brand new axe..

I fall hard at least once every time I play, lol. Last time I played I was running through a bunch of fire to a bunker in the middle of everything. I would have made it, but I neglected to take into consideration the ONE rock on my war path, lol. I tripped on it with both feet. Landed shoulder first into a barrel roll that made my rotor take a core sample, then a core sample with my Ego, finishing off with slamming my ASA/Reg into the ground. To make it worse I missed making my bunker by about 5 feet and stood up into about 15 shots from a few different people.

On the up side I guess it looked like I meant to do it, got a few compliments on it, lol.

tripping, falling, stumbling, slamming into bunkers and teetering, it's all going to happen to you if you play full bore paintball. Funniest, and you gotta laugh at yourself when you do this stuff, is spinning around to run back or around, and running smack into a tree. Worse is when you do damage to your gear, worst is doing damage to yourself. I've broke feednecks off hoppers, plenty of pods being cracked from hitting the deck fast, and a lot of dovetail style ASAs, hate that system for it's relative weakness! Just got an eclipse OOPS on-off and it looks like it'll be muchhhh stronger! I generally try to play through such mishaps, hand feeding paint and cradling the bottle like I'm using a really short remote line! Damage to self makes the playing a little harder, but sometimes if you're lucky, you're not underfire while trying to recover your wind or for that wave of pain to stop disabling your trigger finger. Sometimes your opponent is kind enough to not light you up as you lay there rolling back and forth holding your knee, or laughing too hard to get a real good shot on you. I never walk off a field just from a body hurt, even when I hurt my leg badly 18 months ago, bad enough that it's only just now starting to allow me to run 3/4 speed again.
I once lent my gun to a newb kid and showed him a good bunker to run to. 30 seconds later I hear a terrible air leak coming from his direction. He had run, tripped and landed on my gun's regulator, breaking off the whole vertical asa... He felt bad about breaking my best gun, and it wasn't a very easy fix, but falling in paintball, like sh-t, definitely happens.

I fell and my mask came off, no body saw, so I kept my face down while everyone was still shooting. Then a player on the other team Bunkered me while I was laying on the ground with my mask off.
At PSP Galveston, my team captain fell while bunkering someone, but tripped on the bunker ties, his mask fell off and from the angle everyone was at it looked like he got shot in the eyes. The refs did a great job though, everyone was truly scared.

I tripped over a tree root once running for cover... My hopper hit the ground and paint spilled everywhere. Luckily my mask stayed on, but I did get hit while laying on the ground

At our old field, we played on a hybrid field (speedball layout, but with logs and tires)

I tripped and decided to just go with it and dive early. my loader got wedged into a 1,000 lb tree section and promptly broke off my victory. Not a happy camper, I continued 1-balling and calling positions.

The trick is (provided your mask doesn't come off) to just go with it. Make the best of the situation; if your gun goes down, push up and call out positions / draw fire off your team. They'll forgive you instantly if you can distract the other team so they can bunker them all

Once, I tried to slide on an indoor field, something happened and I ended up doing about 3 somersaults and breaking the speedfeed and battery door off my hopper. Somehow, the speedfeed ended up around my wrist. Needless to say, I quickly grabbed a handful of paint and attempted to bunker the nearest kid. I got shot.

I am NOT a snake player. Last time i was playing hyperball though, i ended inserting into it during the game. I attempted to do a superman dive, but stepped on someone's pod with the foot i was using to push off with. it slid out from under me, and i ended up doing a barrel roll and getting a core sample inside a borrowed sl94. The ref found it quite amusing.

Oh yeah I remember playing some woodsball and I went sprinting to this middle bunker about half way there, there is this big *** root that I didn't see and I literally did a face plant onto the ground and my mask falls off. Most embarrassing thing ever I swear.

I took a fall yesterday playing. It had been sprinkling most the morning so it was a little wet. I went to move from a can to the dorito, slipped with one foot, try to compensate with the other and destroyed my ankle. Then had to roll myself to the nearest bunker, thankfully didn't get lit up in the process.

I've tripped quite a few times. Was playing airball at my local field and it had rained the night before so it was like a giant mud pit. I fell off break a few times, took a bunch of core samples, I fell trying to move to another bunker when it was me vs 2 other guys and I ended up falling below a stream of paint and getting one guy out before I got lit up.'

It was pretty funny and we joked about it all day since everyone was falling and tripping. Twas a fun time.

Today I got shot out on a woods field on the side of a hill. I put my hands and gun up and the guy keeps shooting; not a few extra shots, a flipping rope. I go to lean behind the tree I was near and apparently my foot wasn't in a good place for me to shift my weight that way. My knee hyper-extended (bent the wrong way) and I DROPPED, rolled down the hill a bit, my gun unhooked from my sling, hopper fell off and I just laid there. The ref. paused the game to make sure I didn't break anything and when I told him I was OK he started it up again. Another dude that was dead helped me up and down the steepest part of the hill and the bag that overshot me in the first place started shooting at both of us as we walked off the field.

If it hadn't been caused by being overshot and I wasn't in so much pain I would have thought that much of a yard-sale was funny, but it hurt way too much to think anything.

And WHY did you not confiscate this person's gun, put it on full auto, stick it up his butt and pull the trigger?
