1.) How to stay hidden for an ambush?
2.) What how much cover is necessary?
3.) What is a good BPS for suppression fire?
4.) And other things you’ve noted that has improved you game. So post ‘em here and keep the flaming down because I expect allot of information to be gathered here.
Alright the things I have learned.
1.) Well as you all know we're not snipers by any means we carry far more paint and far less cammo so if we're needed on an ambush then I feel that we should take the same tactics in that as we would in defence stay down behind whatever cover we can find and wait for the enemy to pass by then open up that five gallon can of whoop DUMPER that everyone else calls a hopper and take them out full auto should work well and sweep from back to front if nothing else you should get most of them and put the rest into a good state of confusion.
2.) this really depends on team sizes and field size I've been known to be able to hold three or so newbies behind a bunker for a fair amount of time just using a peppering tactic lean out and if you know where they are pepper the bunker they are hiding behind to let them know you still know they are there and they will think twice about moving or peeking out for a bit this should give your guys enough time to get up there and take them at a closer range.
My teams advantage is 2 broadswords on a smaller team and we are brothers in arms we damn near know what the other is thinking and we have great comm. skills which also helps so we together can grid lock a team for our guys and in the end we walk off knowing what we did may not have won the war but it pushed it into our favor a lot.
3.) this really depends on your enemy if they aren't scared of you poppping off one or two shots a second then you need to speed it up but from what I've noticed most players will look twice and duck if you whip a shot past them high BPS is a great intimidator though I've used it playing against newbies I just go to the range and test fire a hopper and then walk by them in all my gear and they really worry that I might open up on them like that infact one kid actually asked if I was the guy with the machine gun.
High BPS helps cover a little you can sweep bunkers a little better with full auto and it allows you to kind of walk your shots in.
4.) With all that I listed already the biggest thing I have learned is when we are on offence we need to stay to the back (yea just like in all the movies) until our guys call for the pig then we know what to do move up and lay paint on target so our guys can get moving again. As broadswords we hold the weight of a team on our shoulders our sabres daggers and comanders need us to get them past the gridlock in battle and turn that 1 on 1 gun fight into a 3 on one gun fight.
Damn guys now I feel like shotting and all I got coming up is a speedball game next weekend, but hell it's still paintball
