Hey, as team commander, you got to make the best choice that you think will accomplish you mission. Sometimes they're good one's, other times they're not so good. Since your question was what to do if you get surrounded, I'll address just that part of your story.
If you are turely surrounded, you will most likely get wipped out. Assuming you dont want to just sit and wait for that to happen, this is what I suggest. You have to establish a zone of control where you can exit the trap you're in. If you have grenades, get them ready. I suggest you assault the weakest portion of their line. If you have smoke, use it to cover your rear from the main OpForce, while you throw grenades at your assault route. Then do a rolling fire (our teams tactic name) to overwhelm the weakest part of their line, blow through it, and do a rolling retreat to get clear. Your rolling fire manuver has got to be fast. Fire while two advance 10-15 feet to cover if possible. They drop to a knee and open up while the two in the rear roll past them 10-15 feet, drop to a knee and fire. Rinse and repeat with the rest of your squad until you blow through their line. All fire in this situation is suppression fire. You just need to keep the OpForces heads down while you make a hole through their line. Take out targets of opportunity only if doing so doesn't slow you down. Most importantly, get out of the trap.

(I should note that in order for this tactic to work properly you should play in a fairly heavily wooded area with plenty of underbrush and your team MUST have good camouflage strategies. I also assume a tem man team in all of my tactics)
Theoretically simple shadowboxing derives its name not from the actions of the implementing team, but from the actions of the OpFor. Shadowboxing is a hit and run, guerilla tactic designed to cause confusion and misdirection in the minds of the enemy. This is achieved by using several (3-6) players in a sight line fan formation (Spread out in a line moving quickly through wooded areas but never out of sight of each other). When the OpFor is encountered the line quickly and quietly (QUIETLY) moves into a dual flank (Optimally 3 teams of 2). The Shadowboxing will then begin, players will raise and fire two or three shots before ducking into the brush and disappearing, then one on the right will repeat the maneuver then one on the left. Keep this up, it is confusing, it hides your numbers, and it also happens to create what snipers call a fish in a barrel effect, they will almost always group up and look for the fastest way out, a sniper or anyone with a decent shot for that matter can pick them off one by one, and once they run for it it’s over, there is no honor lost in shooting a man in the back if later he plans to turn around…
As for the adaptations of shadowboxing it can be used on the run, either forwards or backwards to befuddle the OpFor into your exact locations and numbers. Believe me, when the staged and seemingly random fire from several locations while you watch shadows move through the trees is seen by the OpFor Commander he will tally numbers much higher than 5 or 6. It is a great tactic to use in paintball due to the fact that it does not rely on accuracy or individual talent, trust me, 6 rookies can take down a team of B.U.D.S. trainers quickly using this tactic….
ive seen this done before and this move is very good it confuses your enemy and you usually win the fight but it also puts the morale down of the other team for the games to come they ended up thinking they are playing a team that is far superior and is everywhere at once it is a very good tactic
