You are never out because you run out of ammunition... BARREL TAG!!! it is a hard discipline to master, but it is a legitimate way for you to get outs.

People can tell when you are dry-firing ECO, it has a distinctly higher pitch than it does when you are firing live. If you train your ear for it you can hear it in the field and a quick commander will take up on an empty battery, even if it is only jammed for a second.

Some people say there is no such thing as a paintball sniper. That means we must be doing our job.
Infantry soldiers die in vain for a thousand shots. A sniper dies for the one shot that will change history.

it distracts the enemies to have more targets and it harder to hit them all

make yourself look like an easy target but don't get out

Once during a game of protet the VIP (I was in the assasin group) I ran out of paint when the VIP and one of his bod grds were near the safe zone. I exchanged blanks with them for about 5 minutes until they realised I was actually shooting paint.

If it happens, i either pretend I still have paint of air (which ususally works with the new ones). I either do the spotter thing, ive done the decoy by popping my head out of cover alot. I never want to stop playing so I have that never quit attitude because i might help my teamate by getting hit instead of him.

i love these threads. overly made, but never overly sickening(atleast for me)

I have 20% warn , im such a rebel!

The only think you can do!

Usually I try to get up and surrender/bunker tag people.
Make really aggressive moves forward or for an objective. I figure in this case, it won't hurt much if I get shot out, since I'm not really effective anymore.
Or if possible, fall back out of range and yell out where the other team is, where they are moving, etc.
My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.

When I run out of paint and/or air, I either become a scout, a decoy, or a flag runner. Doing these jobs are much easier without paint and air. Since your gun is useless, you just put it down and have a friend look after for the rest of the round. :huh:

I lay down fake suppressive fire (My marker is LOUD as hell) while making very aggressive moves.
Take out my slingshot, play like a pump. :P

When I run out of air is 'balls to the wall'. DECOY the rest of the game. Its all about rallying the troops.

Thats when the fun starts. I'm the guy everyone wants to punch at the end for being stone cold nuts.

Yeah, my "other" is i usually become recon if i have a radio. I usually try to get back from the front line and find a position to find out whats going on with the other team. If im ever out of paint and air for good if i dont have enough money to buy more paint i usually go out without a gun and remain prone to report the enemies movements. :wacko:

If your not hit your not out! Simple as that. Throw paint if your out of air. The only thing with dry firing is that some guns make an unusual noise that is very noticable by seasoned players and they will be able to tell that you are dry firing. So get that grenade out or splurge for the tac 8. The other thing is learn to be a bit more conservative during games when you can be. Other than that running intel for your team is a sure fire way to assist them to a victory.

i voted for everything except call your self out. My other is RUN if there is a flag or you can help your team get some valuable time or bunkers just book it. Make sure you have your gun with you or they wont care. Dont have it up just run.
