In cases where you encounter a situation where you or your paintball team have to back down and retreat,

what is the art of retreat ?

Depends on the situation.

There is overrun, where you simply run away and hope to survive.

Then there is the tacticle retreat where team members leap frog back wards offering stagered cover fire and the group as a whole leaves the area in tact.

Commonly, if I am being overrun and the rest of the group is leaving me to get destroied I sit tight and hope the attackers run past me.
Then I can get a couple/few prior to my elimination. Makes me feel more like John Wayne...captain going down with the ship.


There can also be diversionary retreats. You get a coupl runners to flank hard one direction latterally to the advancing forces, tends to divert fire and progress that way while the rest of the group can back off with less heat.
Onece you group is out and moving your flank runners can double back. Usually they are far behind the original force and this can often end up in a flanking attack that can break the offence and stop the need for a retreat in the area.

I play scenario ball...all of this stuff works...just not all of the time!

In a game I did a few weeks ago I started up a hill with a force of about 5 guys + me. As we where advancing an opposing squad got the high ground faster and began to eliminate my squad (FYI I was the squad leader at the time). I'll have to say, my squad didn't play very smart because they just stood up and started shooting over the brush rather then crawling and advancing to better positions. I was left by myself against the squad of 5. I took a few shots through some bushes so that they knew my position. I then crawled back about 30 feet and took one out as he advanced on my old position. Since my new location was discovered, I backed down again where I had a vantage of two good angles. From there I took another out as they tired to flank my old position again. I relocated and waited. By this time I think I was getting them pretty nervous because they stopped advancing for about 5 minutes as I held my new spot. Once they started moving again I saw them pushing through some bushes about 15 feet in front of me moving very slowly. I popped 2 more leaving only one. The game ran out of time but I figured it was better then them wining.

The art is to stay low, relocated whenever your position is discovered, and be patient.

I spent a whole summer drilling my team on retreat many long moons ago. There were three main lessons I learned.

1) Getting a retreat started is easy, stopping it is hard.
2) You have to pick the retreat line on the way forward and point out to the team that this is where the retreat stops
3) It is preferable if there is a lot of open ground in front of your retreat line. It makes shooting the opposing force a lot easier when they have to advance across it.

people retreat? I prefer to just battle it out, but for the most part, if it is impossible not to...a staggered retreat works well..cover fire with small groups moving back..or if you are on a downhill slope you can try just booking it down as fast as your britches will let oyu...but I have been hit in the butt doing that.

i usualy play with a 10 man squad. i like to discretely send 3 men to my right and 3 men to my left and keep 3 men plus me in the position we need to retreat from. then me and the 3 other guys with me start shootn like crazy and maken a bunch of noise and fall back to good cover then the enemy will usualy make a b-line for us. then i have turned a defensive manuver into a definsive position coverd by an ofensive double enveloping manuver. when the opfor is right in the middle of the 3 fireteams, i get on the horn and everybody starts unloading on the group in the middle. and when done correctly, the angles of my other shooters dosent allow for friendly fire but still creates a dense kill box

but when im playn sniper i am alone and never need to retreat, just reposition XD

Actually getting shot in the ass is where you want it, 90% of the time it will bounce, even if your a skinny kid. most people have enough fat on both cheeks to get a bounce,

Getting hit right on the back of the leg, for some reason it always leaves a big welt. Never understood why,
