Drop-Shoot How often do you do it?

I remember the biggest factor with this crap was that because it lagged just enough that it didn't register hits very well when people were moving in the air like this -_-
I totally remember people doing that in a straight line at me while lying down with a PKM machine gun on full auto...and knifing me....
Not quite the same tactic as is possible in real life lol

Gun Setup - Using a stock and bipod both will increase the accuracy while shooting prone. Whether or not your tank is remote will also affect your overall accuracy. It is about comfort and stability, and the marker has to match your style of play. This is partially the reason many players choose not to go prone, they do not have the correct marker setup to facilitate a comfortable and stable technique.
Gear/Camouflage - The setup of your vest/tank/pods will all effect your ability to go prone. If your vest has a radio, pistol, or extra mags, you may not be comfortable going prone. Many players have these items on the front of the vest for ease of access. If you are looking for more comfort, moving the pistol to a leg holster and moving the radio to the shoulder or side will allow for more manueverability while on your stomach. As for camo, the more the better while prone. As an example, you are using a 4+1 harness and go prone. Without some kind of camo covering your tank and the pod lids, they will stand out like a giant orange cone in a haystack.
Terrain - Your surroundings are the biggest factor when deciding to go prone. Most people relate prone to the players in Modern Warfare that will be any area and drop real quick and fire shots. Going prone in real life (paintball or military) is about being hidden prior to ever being seen. This cannot be done without the proper cover. Choosing what spot to go prone is one of the more difficult decisions you can make. Example, you have a choice between tall grass, a fallen log, or a pile of brush. Which one do you choose? Before you can really answer you must take in a few more factors such as weather (has it rained recently? has it been two months without rain?), height of the grass, or which one will leave you least exposed while giving you the maximum visibility? A lot of players would rather avoid making the decision and go straight for the first available bunker. This is what going prone is all about, not being in the obvious location.
Player Position - Depending on the position you are providing to your team, going prone may or may not be advantageous. If you are responsible for laying down cover fire, going prone will not likely be a good idea. If your playing as a dagger, your job is to trigger ambushes as well as scout out the OPFOR, not to be laying on your stomach in the middle of the field.
All of these are deciding factors on whether or not going prone will benefit you and your team alike. If you decide it will positively benefit you and your team, feel free to try it out. It will take some getting used to, but once you have the correct setup and are in a position to do so, you can and will be a force to be reckoned with.

EDIT: Probably not practical though, just crush your lungs
