DMW! Dead man's walk.

When done correctly... hands down, finger on the trigger and no barrel bag in place its a very successful move.
This move must be executed with great skill and you must be ready to get lit up!
I have used this several times in my years playing some times it works... sometimes not so much.
It works in both walk on woods ball games and scenarios. I must stress I'm not advocating cheating, just a good time.

However, if the gun goes over the players head, OR they say "hit" or "out", then it is no longer a valid tactic. On many fields, if the barrel sock is in place over the muzzle of the marker, then the player has effectively called themselves out.

When it's okay: Major scenarios that have a "total war" mentality. Some scenarios are more "friendly" or set in stone than others. An example of a total war scenario are BlackCat's games: if you come up with a great idea for how to do something that wasn't originally in the script or a possibility they didn't consider, there's a VERY good chance they'll write up rules to make it playable on the spot. It's a situation where player innovation and non-standard tactics are encouraged. There is no honor lost because it's part of the game. You are expected to do anything you can within the rules to win.
When it's not okay: Just about anywhere else. Rec games, or scenarios with a more friendly and fixed atmosphere. It's not a good thing to do, to prey on peoples' trust in a game that so firmly depends on it.

If I'm ever in doubt on who I think is a DMW'er, I shoot them anyway. This isn't right for those that are being a good sport and leaving the field. If it weren't for the DMW'er, this wouldn't happen at all.

Nope, never done that. Changed teams once though.
I'm back from a long long long time of no paintball, drooling over markers older then I am.

And actually, Deadman Walking is not much of a Tactic, its actually more of a Trick to see who is actually paying attention and yes, its True most fields dont allow for it to be used, cus it can start some serious arguments.

i left the field to refill everything and decided to watch him play another game. he did the same exact thing again! the way he worked it was he didn't really try to pretend he was out, he somehow figured out how to treewalk an xball field which i didn't even think you could do the way it was laid out. i found out later that the guy was an ex professional but i never got his name.
