I found this a while ago and thought it might be helpful to some; it's all the different SWAT hand signals and what they mean. I had my friends learn a few of them and used them in my backyard airsoft days, and it helped us stay silent while spotting enemies and what not. I can see it being used if you don't have any radios or when silence is key.

Funny...Many of those are based on American Sign Language.

Hand signals may have limited use in bushball, but I could see them as very useful in a CQB scenario.

Truth.

Sometimes it will be hard to see hand signals in woodsball, but in CQB, it could be very helpful.

I prefer just yelling everything your team needs to know, so much more convenient. But to each his own I guess.

I'm having trouble finding situations where most of these would be useful, but some of them I could see being helpful.

I use them from time to time. Although in walk on play I generally have to explain what they mean before the game.
