hello. we're going to be playing a game on saturday. it will probably be roughly 10-15 people. the first time i played, my friend said he saw a dagger in me. i was a dagger in progress. i have been doing some searching on the dagger ways and junk. i have upped my arsenal since last time. i did have a stock 98 custom(i couldnt hit anything, and it made me angry). now i have an a5 with a c series, and a skirmish si pump. they can both shoot darts with the right paint. i was just wondering, if anyone had any pointers before i have to redeem myself on saturday. thanks

You could have just upgraded your 98...
Since you're new, here's some general stuff.

Communicate.
Talk to the other players on the field. Find out where the other team's players are, where you can move, where people are getting pinned down, such things as that.

Move.
Especially playing up front, movement is key. If you stay still too long, the other team can get angles of fire on you and then you're toast. If you're constantly bumping around to different bunkers, even if it's just a short move, will make the other team re-adjust.

Patience.
Now, while you should keep moving, you need to know WHEN to move. Just running to a new bunker whenever you feel like it will get you shot out a lot. You gotta be smart about it. Wait for the other team to reload, look away, change targets, or generally stop shooting at you. If the other team gives you an opening, take it. Don't think about it, because by the time you do the opening could be gone. The worst that will happen is you get shot.

My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.

Along with pirates post, be aware of your surroundings if your in the front. you could have someone slip around you and take all of you out from behind. basically, dont get tunnel vision.

Just a few tips that I learned which can be useful if you ever get in a position in which you are trading shots with a single opponent. Trading shots is not something most experienced players recommend since you basically have just 50% chance of winning (assuming equal player skill). A forward flanking manuever is often the most effective tactic but as Pirate said, you have to know when to make your move. Pirate made a few general suggestions so I thought I would add a couple specific ones I learned from personal experience.

The first one works really well against inexperienced and/or cautious players. Fire snap shots to get the other player to stay low. I do this by using a red-dot and a handful of well-placed shots while others prefer raw firepower. Both methods will do the job. If the player takes a long time to pop back up then you KNOW that a dash foward made just after the opponent ducks will have a good chance of success.

The second one works when dealing with more aggressive and experienced players. It is very simple: Move up when he runs to another bunker. People do not seem to be very observent when they are running (at least in my experience) and thus may not even see you moving towards the flank.

The first two times I played, I was eliminated about 10 times and only got one kill. Before I went back for a third day of paintball, I did a great deal of internet research (try watching Tyger's Expert Village) and spent some time just shooting at wooden targets. It paid big dividends for me.

it helps. of you want to really test yourself, get a friend to move the targets so you don't know where they are, so when you rush round a corner, you have to look fast and shoot fast

i wish i could do that :panzer:

I plan on taking you under my wing Jared. I can only teach you so much though because I am a Sniper and you play Dagger. I could teach you the basics though.

if your position is know, dont worry about being quiet. and when it comes to moving, trust your instinct. dont second guess yourself. that often doesnt work out to well.

and the opposite apply's if your position is unknown, be quiet, and think your moves through
