- well how to effectively keep the firing lane covered
- act as a firing base so dagers and saber can flank off of you while you can give them effective cover fire
- able to use grenades effectively
- play smart defense for your squad back at base
- know your equipment and your limitations

I do lunges, lots of lunges. Two sets of 48 with 25 pounds in each hand 3 days a week. That keeps your quads in shape so you can do that stupid chicken walk through the woods without getting tired. Ultimately it pays off towards the end of a scenario when everybody is getting tired and making mistakes, you've got enough energy and strength left to exploit their weakness.

To be a good broadsword, you always need to be aware of everything around you and to use smart tactics in desperate needs. People think its easy to paint around....it isn't. You need to have a low profile to be a broadsword...cause you'll stick out like an MG42 in WW2. Things to work on is following commands really good and watch players movements. If a guy is missing for some reason, you know something is about to happen. Practice fast movement on feet and in decision making. Thats extremely important because it could danger your team greatly. Another thing to learn is taking cover and seeing the enemy at the same time. A broadsword is either placed in the back of a squad or front (mostly back so the little people can sneak around ahead but our team has it in front for firing support). No matter where the person is, he needs to see the enemy, take good cover without being detected and lay the line of pain. Also, learn to give covering fire to both you and your teammates. Help them out, cause they will help you. (Hopefully :/) And of course finally, learn to aim and fire. Thats very important, obviously, and you need to learn how to pump the trigger and not hold it, learn to aim long and far, learn long ball and short ball combat, and how to take down the enemy effectively without any casualties. These are basic tips but you get the picture. Enjoy!

Hm. Well for my expierences its not laying down a "biblical ammount of paint" Its being SMART with the paint that you lay so the enemy keeps their heads down. Why use 100 paintballs for a job that 50 can do? For me its just enough to keep their heads down and nothing more... I had yet to have a man shot out as he runs to a possition that Im Cover Firing for...

Laying down paint doesn't make you a good back player, you're job is to make the other guys job really really hard by choking down his lanes and giving your front players a chance to move around. Basicly you have to keep your opponant in range and in control force him to play bad bunker angles, hitting shots on or just past his bunker to keep him in there. I've gone nose to nose with players just hosing my bunker, once they start tagging one side I'm out the other, and alot of times good cover even lets you advance on them while they're whaling away on the wrong side. As a back player its your job to draw fire and control lanes, alot of the time that means making yourself a target.

And frankly ^^^ that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard of.

There seems to be a bunch of good ideas here, but they are somewhat scattered and nontargetted. Using the average skill level from the positions guide on the stores website, I can give a more organized approach to the topic:

Basic Broadsword should know or be trained on
SAFETY
How to be a team member
What other team members do for the team
Basic suppression and cover fire
Everything about angles and tactics from the tactics guide
Equipment operation and maintenance
How to lead a running target
How to come out of a bunker aiming at your target already (drills, drills, and more drills)
How to avoid shooting your teammates in the back when laying cover
Body space management (not sticking their behinds out)
The art hitting the deck and crawling around
Basic rules of paintball (take nothing for granted here, repetition is effective)
Basic radio comms
Basic situational awareness (how a fight is going by "feel")
How to minimize bonus balling
Their marker's effective accurate range
Budgetting for paintball (yes I am serious.)

Senior Broadsword should know or be trained on
Gear Upgrades
Coordinated movement tactics like leap frogging (two to five man drills weekly)
Long balling and laying a grid of fire (think artillery beyond accurate range)
Paint/Air management (not running out of either)
Layered Defenses
Bodycounting (the "add" system)
Map and compass usage
Self noise generation
Land management (places for defense, offense, ambush, multiple angles)
If it says basic above, then the advanced version of it.


Since the topic inheirantly will attract newer players to the position, I will leave out Master and Elite. More to the point, I am a Senior Broadsword Command Seargent, and it is not my place to speak for Masters and Elites. Regardless, I believe this list to be a thorough beginning to an effective training plan)

Hope it helps. If you would like anything added PM me so I can do it and keep the list organized and consolidated.

Hey couldnt have said it better myself but if they are more of a conservative broadsword like me and after laying down a base of fire for the squad
I like to utilize 3-to 6rd bursts once I know that im up against and it would be extremely important to learn to run and fire effectively with more precision and accuracy with a full hopper without getting tagged by enemy contacts.

thats what i believe and do. ;)
