Zeppelins Helpful Hints & Tips
Tips to play at your best
Speedball

Front Players
-Make sure the front player has stretched legs so he can run his fastest distance
-Front players don’t usually shoot off break because it will slow them down
-Places where a front player should take for key bunkers, the 50 bunker (usually an X) Is key to keep snake from getting up to far the snake. The Snake a common key bunker to win a game a front player should try to get in their off brake to have an early advantage over your opponents.

Mid Players
-Mid Players should go about the 30-40 line in my opinion.
-Some should shoot off brake and some shouldn’t but they should always be shooting down lanes

Back Player
-The Back Player should shoot out a line of fire down lanes to maybe catch a opponent off brake and have a slight advantage already.

Rec Or Tourney Playing Hints
-Snap Shooting is key you must do these do get out of a key situation when getting a lot of fire at your bunker
-When in the middle of a field you have to watch out for the left and right side of the field or else you might get hit, so play tight when in the middle.
-A way to surprise your enemy and keep him guessing is to pop out different areas of your bunker, such as standing up right, on-one knee left, and on top of the bunker
-When at an angled bunkered such as a dorito or taco, you should angle your gun the same way, this will make your gun and yourself have less of a profile that will be harder to hit.
-When in snake don’t stop the first knuckle keep going to the middle knuckle were you can then get some other the side of the field shots and help your team.
-Learn to shoot both hands for easy switching sides of the bunker and feild.
-Before you play any games during rec or a tourney walk the feild to learn key bunkers, angles, and angles that will have shots on you
-When one of your team mates is getting shot at but you have no angle on the bunker, make one if you have to shoot over a bunker that will help greatly
-Always have your pods ready it is a good idea to have spare pods in your bag that you can swich to when the pods you have on you are empty
-If in a tourney it's a good idea to always have your PSI always above 2000, you don't want your paintballs not going far enough becuase your air is to low
-Also a key in Speedball and almost every sport is communication, yell oppoent bunkers, players eliminated, and when reloading
-Sometimes you want to or need to be very tight to a bunker but some you can hang "loose" as long as you stay inside the imaginary box that the bunker covers you with
-If you have to you may have to bunker a player no matter how many people complain somtimes it is neccisary
-Even though this rule ay help you win but NEVER wipe a hit especially at a tourney or else you be given a 1 for 1 or worse 1 for 3.
-Allways be a goods sport to every player even if you crush them or lose to them
-Play at your best

easiest thing to remember is the smaller you make yourself the smaller of a target you are to others

led zepolin states that you should keep your enemys guessing what spot of the bunker your gona peek out form.... i would recomend not using the top of your bunker as much.... use the sides(top, bottom, and middle) and ocasionally the top but dont try that on the same bunker twice. also when on a dorito i find it eiser if you look out the left side to be using you right hand to shoot therfore you are at more of an angle and have less of a chance to get hit. vice versa for the right side.

You should also tight against the bunker, tuck yourself in so no one will get you in the feet, shoulders, etc...

Edit: Oh, he already said that.

An important tip, is to always have enough paint with you on the field, in the heat of the moment, your hopper can run out when you need it most, so get a pod pack! Also, bring a squeegee to clean out any breaks.

ninja jones ... thank you i almost forgot.... if i ever see a speedball game with a person wearing a vest. i belive you should
a. get a stern talking to about how ridicules you look.(unless its a cops 911 or cagg vest) all other vests i cant stand
and b. should be slapped by your teammates, opposing team, refs, and spectaters to show you how stupid you look.

Great artical but heres a few more tips,

-Dont be afraid to move when you see an opportunity it might not be there for long.
-By pressing your barrel and/or into the inflateable bunker you can create a lower profile.
-Most bunkers will give alittle when you push them, dont move them to the other side of the feild but you can push it to the side for a second to get a quick peak at where everyone is.
-Always bring one more pod than you think you are going to use. (you use 2 pods on average, bring 3)
-Slideing not only looks cool but enables you to diffuse your momentum and get under cover faster.
-A Head check is when you pop your head out for a split second just to see if anyone is shooting, then you pop out alittle longer so you know where everyone is.
-In some games there will be holes in your bunker (in not inflateable) use that to your advantage stick you head down there to get a good view, you might get some splatter though.
-Improv- do what you think they wounlt think your gonna do. (be unexpected, dont fall into patterns, dont stick your head out count to 3 and stick out again every time, mix it up count to 5 one time, or count to 7 or 1)
-If you cant see if you got hit and you cant feel it call a ref over, when he gets to you, you can play agian and he'll tell you if your out or not.
-Show respect and you will be given the same.

I would like to point out that a front man who can shoot while running and not be slowed down and be able to hit his target is a force to be recond with...had to deal with one today actually and it sucked after he took out my teamate going for the snake and myself in the same stream of paint.

while possible it take ALOT of practice and it will even then slow you up unless you plan on complete spray an pray and 1% accuracy, its better to just run, unless your going up the middle because you can take it slower, less people laneing you and you can shoot a lane too.

(shooting a lane means that you shoot in one specific spot so anyone who tryes to run through will have to go through your "stream" of paint and most likely will be hit)
