Lightbulb Add tips for beginner players!

I just thought I'd create a thread with helpful beginner tips. I encourage anyone to add more tips since I will ms something and, as a beginner myself, I would like to learn along with this thread. Here goes my first few tips:

1. DON'T get tunnel vision. Even though you see a fairly clear shot at someone, don't advance toward/aim at them only. Remember that there are more people on the field that could be getting a clear shot at you too.

2. When snap shooting, keep your elbow in tight against your body so it doesn't pop out from behind the bunker before you and your gun do.

3. Also when snap shooting, work the whole bunker. Pop out high, low, left, right and even over the top if you can. Keeping this kind of variety in your game will translate to more versatility everywhere else.

4. Don't favor one hand. Practice shooting with both sides. I've tried serving tea but IMO nothing beats being ambidextrous with your marker.

5. When playing the dorito, lean your gun in toward the dorito depending on which side your on. This way your loader isn't exposed.

6. Always make sure your gun and loader are on before the game starts.

7. If something goes wrong with your gun or you're shot off the break, get to your bunker first before paint checking or having a look at your gun.

If youre playing in the back, COMMUNICATE. Be loud.

when shot out. yell, "OUT" so your teammates know you got out.

Most critical tip to remember is Keep Your Mask ON! A marker firing at 300 FPS (feet per second) means that the paintball is traveling at over 200 miles per hour. Trust me - your eyeball is not going to do well being struck by something moving at that speed!

Other tip I would give - after everyone has their mask on, fire 2-3 shots at a safe target to make sure that both your marker and hopper are turned on.

keep an awareness of everything around you from bunkers to opponents this is including your own team. if you don't know you're the last one left on your team it could end badly for you

thank you guy above me for the mask thing.. i would like to add BARREL BAG/PLUG ON AT ALL TIMES WHEN NOT ON THE FIELD OF PLAY.

Keep moving... Staying in the same bunker the whole game is a sure way to get in trouble.

Run as far as you can off the break, but without going to far ahead of your team.

Have a plan...a strategy. First bunkers, second moves, what lanes are being covered, who moves where when whoever gets out. Chaos and anarchy rarely win games.
