BlackCat's Plague of Zombies. We swept an area and were pushing out. Evidently we missed one person who didn't bother to shoot. I'm walking, and I'm about 15 feet away from the person on my left, separated by a very thin bush that was completely transparent and offered no real protection. I hear someone quietly (but not quiet enough) say "barrel tag" from a ways to my left. I swung my E-Mag around and just CLOBBERED the guy. He goes "Oh *censored*!" and tried to shoot back, but it was WAY too late. If you're going to barrel tag someone, don't do it within earshot and clear line of fire of someone with an electronic gun, or at least do it quietly enough that they won't hear you. As he said, "Well, I got a barrel tag, but I don't think it was worth it."

How do you barrel tag someone from 15 ft. away? Maybe Im not reading this right....

He tagged the guy on my left, and I heard him and let him have it.

I didn't know if he'd have his gun already trained on me when I turned around, so I came around firing. As it turned out, he didn't. Which leads to lesson #2: if you're going to do that, at least AIM your gun at the other person after you tag the first. Don't leave it pointing at the ground.

LOL he was sitting next to a tree with no cover at all LOL

definitely not the right way to barrel tag.... always be ready, cause you dont know when the guy next down the line has an itchy trigger finger
im sure he learned that after he got lit up

thats awesome :laugh: , apparently he missed the meeting where they told 'em a ghillie is only effective if ya know how to use your surroundings.......big bush+big black mask on top+ next to an open tree= needs more practice lol...come to think of it, ive heard many a tale similar to this, too many people watch tom behringer (sp) in snipper and think they know whats up i guess(cool movie though...in its cheezy-low budget kinda way lol)

I would have reacted the same way. It's human nature to react like that in a situation like that.

It means you tag someone with your barrel instead of shooting them. Commonly used when someone walks right by your position without noticing you and you don't want to shoot him from so close. I have only done it inside buildings around corners.

Are you serious!? Its when you walk up on somebody from behind and tap them with the barrel saing there out. And if I were the guy getting tagged, I'm calling myself out right away!

Wait what? Why didn't he just ambush and try to go for both of you? I suppose bragging about getting a barrel tag might be worth it or something. Was he out of paintballs?

No. He was simply outnumbered about 20 to 1. If he'd gone active, he'd have been clobbered by a lot of people. As it was, he still got clobbered.

Note: he did do 1 thing right: he said "Barrel tag", which makes it binding because he called the guy out. I had someone try to pull a "Do you wish to surrender?" on me, which was non-binding. That one didn't end well for the tagger, either. I've seen 2 botched barrel tags. This was arguably the worse executed of the two, although here he at least got a guy out.

How to botch a barrel tag, part 2:

1. Tag your own teammate

2. Painfully jam your gun in his kidney

3. Position yourself so you can't readily see what his gun arm is doing, at night, so you REALLY can't see what that arm is doing

4. Ask if he wants to surrender instead of saying "Barrel tag" or "You're out."

End result: I calmly flipped my pump around, fired over my shoulder, and shot him in the mask. I honestly would have liked to have seen the look on his face at the "Oh crap" second.
