Haha I know, just getting to snake or even a Dorito, it could have been because the other side knew we didn't shoot off the break so they didn't have to worry about getting hit

yeah there is a lot of different factors and make sure you run with your head up. Snake off break is usually a hard run because so many people lane snake heavy so it might be best to go to the insert before the snake if you are repeatedly getting shot off break to the snake.

Practice that running and gunning, it's crucial. Remember to plan your run ahead of time. Use bunkers, near and far, to block lanes and such as you run. I like to use the J (or L) method when the lane is really hot as well. In the end, practice makes perfect and field awareness will probably prevail. Put some thought into this. The break is probably the most important few seconds of a game

can't hesitate at all , but that doesn't mean you should go reckless aggressive. Play smart and use your teammates as support. We all started somewhere it just takes practice.

Yeah I'm still pretty new to speedball so I just gotta keep practicing. I did notice I would get shot of the break more often when I ran straight to the bunker, rather then using the L method.
I just feel really slow when I'm trying to focus on shooting straight and running to the bunker

10 second Laning drills are great for runners and shooters and you'll shoot a lot less paint and get in a lot more points that way. Suggest it to your group of guys next time you're at the field, it sucks after a few gos, like track practice, but if you're running head up (you should, paint is easier to see and avoid coming at a distance, so look for it down field) you'll notice an improvement even after 10 points

When the horn hasnt sounded, find your path and look to make sure its clear of holes. Why your doing this is so that you know there is nothing to trip/ get a busted ankle on.
Now that you got your path, when the horn sounds, DONT LOOK AT THE FLOOR. Everyone off the break is trying to rope, and if your eyes are looking at where your feet are, you could be walking straight for a rope without knowing it until you got paint all over you.
Eyes open, gun up, run HARD. If your breaking right, keep your gun in your right hand. Breaking left, keep your gun in left hand. Use your hand or arm to cover your mask to promote bounces (not cheating).

One thing i was told to do is shield your head with your arm. For example, if you are running to the right, your gun is in your right hand, hold up your left arm to shield your head. Paintballs will more likely bounce off your elbow pads/arms than your head or mask.

Another thing for running to your bunker, try running along th eback tape and then cutting in to your bunker as opposed to running straight to your bunker. This way you will avoid lanes a bit better and, as you are running along the back tape, you will be out of range of incoming paint for longer as well.

Keep your eyes on the opponent and look for their lanes. Adapt to that and then you should be fine. Also, come out wide and then go into your bunker. Don't go straight for your bunker otherwise you are more likely to catch a lane.

EEk no! Never shield your face with your arm, you won't be able to see. Your head should be up and looking downfield while you are running to your bunker. Also, your mask is the least likely place to be hit on the break, as most inexperienced players will shoot low and the paint will be impacting around your abdomen/legs. It IS, however, a very good idea to do what is called "Hiding the hard" or keeping the gun on the side of your body facing away from the incoming paint, because a ball is extremely likely to break on contact with your gun. Try delaying, or waiting at a central bunker for 5-10 seconds, because often the other team will drop their lanes after that time. Then break for your secondary whether it be snake or dorito.

Another thing that helped me was to look at where on my body I was getting hit and adjusting my run accordingly. If I'm getting hit in the legs or shoes, that means the paint is just barely tagging me before the ground and if I run a wider L (or J) route then that paint will be breaking on the ground before it ever reaches me. If I'm getting hit off the break up high in the shoulder or chest, then I either try to run lower or initiate an early slide and get under that high stream of paint. Judge how the other team lanes and adjust accordingly!

Run fast, always shoot off the break (they can't shoot you if they're dead), and walk the field to find dead zones before you play. The safest route to a bunker is not always the shortest.
