To be honest I can't remember the last time I was on my belly for more than one minute lol. I am usually always the guy you will see who is running and gunning trying to make something happen or pull something together on the go.

I actually gone to ground quite often! I think it is one of the underused skills in woodsball.
Being a low crawler takes skill and stamina. The biggest skill, understanding terrain! You would be amazed how far you can crawl with nothing more than small depression in the ground in an open field!
However, 10 minutes? Not unless it is a scenario game. Any other game 2-3 mintues tops, as after that, you gotta take the field position. You do not go just taking a nap. Your position must be proactive as much as covered!
I used to think:
"So what if you shoot 15bps, but I only need to hit you with one"
Then I learned how much fun it is to hit someone once every 1/15th of a second!

i'm with dakar on this one: the crawl is an awesome but underused tactic. like it says in the Spec-Ops guidebook, you'd be surprised how much butt you'll kick if your willing to get your cammies dirty. But 10 minutes? this is a sabre section, not the sniper section. if you are pulling 10 minutes of prone, you probably aren't making very aggressive moves, or are seriously lacking in the suppressive fire dept if you're forced to crawl for 10 min.

I have had times where crawling has come in handy. There were two buildings, about 20 feet apart, with a low 2 foot dirt burm between them. I dove between the 2 buildings, crawled to the next, eleminated the player that was hiding behind the 2nd building from the prone position, got into a crouch and then went into the 2nd building. Again, crawling long disntances doesn't usually work unless the cover is exceptional. When you are crawling your speed is gone, making you a slow moving target although your profile is also must smaller.

I don't crawl. Hell I don't even really kneel down. Bad knees limit that and it's hard to get 380 lbs up quickly if I have to run.

When storming the beach at ION this year, the only way to move up the field was to crawl. You seriously could not make it to a bunker 6 feet to your side without crawling. Ask anyone on the beach. That tall grass saved our lives. However, in smaller woodsball games, i do whatever i need to do to get an advantage. If that means crawling, so be it.

Honestly I rarely am completely prone... maybe if we are setting an ambush but other than that the closest I get is squatting or on my knees.

Yes, actually I do spend alot of time on my belly personally. The less exposure the better. But how does that tie in with the field position of medium riflemen? I mean, if you are going up the field on your belly with the intentions of ambushing them, I would think that would fall under the sniper position. Sabres are, however, one of the most versatile field positions, and laying on your belly to get behind enemy lines would certainly fall under that position as well. To answer your question, yes, spending alot of the game crawling will give you a serious advantage as you will present yourself as a poorer target to the bad guys. I do it almost every game, and you will gain alot from trying it out yourself.

I'm never prone for that long but when I take fire from an unknown location I'm on the ground. You are harder to hit on the ground and the prone postion is about the most stable shooting position you can ask for. I'm prone in most of my woodsball games.

Depends on the type of game and where I'm playing/what the terrain is. If I'm playing speedball, I don't spend much, if any time on my belly. For woodsball, if the terrain allows and affords good cover, I can crawl and stay down for a long time if I have a good ambush spot or the like. Other games, I sometimes don't go prone very much, especially if it's a "village" or other open setting. Really depends on what the circumstances are for me.

Crawling is a useful skill. Though one has to keep in mind that there are 2 versions one can use. There is the fast Leopard crawl version which keeps your butt low to the ground. But takes alot of work. Though keep in mind regardless of terrain oe has to zigzag a bit. If you don't you may as well put a big aiming point on you.


The other version is pretty uch what takes for ever, it's the one snipers use. Pretty much and inch by inch movement.

Used the Leopard crawl many times on the local field. Moved pretty quick from cover to the next cover.
4. If your shooting stance is good, you're probably not moving fast enough nor using cover correctly.

15. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
