I made a thread that will answer all of your questions, spurred by this thread, felt it was only proper that I post it here.

Play with each other as much as you can. This way you will know instinctively what each other will do. Try not to move forward on your own, either by having a team mate giving cover fire or 2 or more team mates move at the same time. Last learn to work tape lines and gaps especially in bigger games. Gaps are spaces between 2 individual fire fights.

Check out the Woodsball subsection on the home page! Also, look at the position subsections.

Tons of great info!

simple tips are just to work together and use the edges of the field. Definitely check out other forum areas, there are great topics galore on all kinds of helpful subjects. Good luck with the team!

I'd say....wear pink camo.... Works for me....:D

Also...walking on leaves and sticks is a lot less noisy than talking. So don't talk if ya wanna be sneaky. Really, that's my biggest tactic. The others are findable if you love to read. :wub: Good luck and have fun!

Actually... there is a truth to this...

Back when the SAS (for those who don't know, thats Special Air Service, Britians elite special forces. The Brit equivilent to the Navy SEALs) first started, (WWII I think)

They used to used jeeps with a mounted machine gun for night raids through enemy camps and they were painted pink. Not a hot pink but a pale pink. The science behind this is very intresting. For some reason (which I do not know) the human eye does not see this color well in very low light conditions.

I'm pretty sure the Royal Navy actually experimented with painting battleships that color. Lol.


But, obviously you would stick out like a sore thumb in daylight. :laugh:

I'm pretty sure it had a whole lot more to do with the fact that they were in the desert and the pink was close to a tan.

Play speedball.... Seriously

It will help your playing more than learning hand and arm signals and patrolling formantions.

Quoted For Truth. You will pick up and learn skills far faster in speedball then woodsball. You can get 5 speedball games in in the time you can one woodsball game. And you will learn snapshooting quickly as well as how to shoot in your offhand, something most woodsballers never learn or care to learn.

I can't count the amount of times i see a woodsballer lean their hole body out the left side of a bunker so they can shoot with thier right hand still, instead of switching hands and shotting in their off hand...sad really...i have lost count.

I feel like I am cheating sometimes. There is a section of the field covered with a mesh of vines and thin sticks, branches(w/e it is) and the paintballs won't go through, but you can still look through it. So, I just stand up and watch as people will dump hoppers into where I am and it never makes it through.

Speedball will teach you to think and move in almost no cover, to play angles and react quickly to any scenario. Will also work on accuracy.

Snapshooting has been mentioned, but one of the BEST drills to practice it is to set up behind something in front of a mirror. Lean out and see what parts of your body are sticking out. The smaller profile, the better.

i used to run around my house on nights off with a marker and practice snap shooting from everything. Have a few drinks, then post up in the kitchen behind the columns, snap out each side. Run, slide to couch, snap shoot over the top, snap shoot around the side. Move up to coffee table, snap to the side. Stand up and go back snap shooting from the other side of the furniture. Was fun. Helped me out a lot.

another thing to do is while watching tv hold your marker in your off hand. And just randomly snap at things on the wall. THen get your head behind the sights and see how off you were. Keep doing that and in a weeks time it will feel natural in your hand. And it is easy to do and takes no time, cause you are doing it while watching tv
