Topics I've Started
04 November 2013 - 07:27 AMI play woodsball primarily. As playing in the woods, reminds me of playing "war" with bb guns (3 pump limit) when we were kids... There is just something about sneaking around in the woods and shooting guys who have NO clue you are there, that is really fun.
Anyway, I've started making videos that show how I hunt, giving away some of my tactics so new players can learn from them. I'm sure many of you have more tactics and tricks up your sleeves, so share them here, so we can all get better at our "woodsball" games!
If blip doesn't work for you, these are also on my youtube page. "TrailsOfDoom".
Here is the first one, I went to a large scenario this summer, and played "my" style of paintball, sneaking around in the woods often by myself, looking for high value targets and taking them out, one by one.
This video has blown up and has over 100,000 views already between blip and youtube.
Here is a new video I put out showing how to flank and control one entire side of the field in a woodsball game, which is a huge advantage in a "capture the cone" type game where you have to be touching the cone at the end of the game to win. I even use my Tipx pistol in this one with my LEFT hand!
And here is a woodsball tactic I like to use when an attack team is pushing hard towards my base... I call it "The Gambit", and when done correctly, it allows you to be in two places at once... (at least according to the other team! haha!) They will stay out of the shooting lanes of your original position as they are convinced you are there, not realizing you have moved, and are waiting for them to advance into your only "blind" spot that your original position had, so you can take them out!...
So, these are some of mine, what do you use in the woods?...
07 May 2013 - 08:07 AMI love backspin systems, and I've been wanting MORE for some time... When the Apex 2 came out, and I realized it had more ramp, which allowed for better spin shots I was excited.
But, I wanted MORE.
So one day I took apart my new style Foregrip style Flatline, and built up a tape mod on the end to accept the Apex 2 tip... I assumed it would just break paint. So my first tests were at low speed. No breaks! And man would it hook some serious paint! I was dive bombing BEHIND bunkers at 60 feet away. You can literally shoot behind trees with this thing!
I've been wanting to play a game with it and turn up the velocity to normal speeds, but I haven't figured out a way to mount my ZoomCam. So recently I took it over to a local field and hit the field with it!
Check it out, I am playing at 270fps, using Formula 13 paint that I just purchased at the local field. This barrel system is CRAZY FUN!
Imagine having this at a big scenario where people are hiding behind a hill, or bunker and you can't shoot them straight!!! Yup, MonsterSpin, this will shock some people for sure!
04 February 2013 - 09:44 AMSo how close have you gotten to the flag without winning the game?
Check this out, I mean SO STINKING CLOSE! But, I got snipered...
Funny thing is, this same snipers, tagged 2 more after me from the same spot. And then one of our players came in from the backside of the camp and went to the flag, and saw two other guys from the other team in front of him... And instead of getting the flag, he went after those two first as they didn't know he was there!
Sadly, he walked right into the path of that same sniper who took him out! AARRGHH!!! hahaha!
28 January 2013 - 06:27 PMI've been playing with a Tippmann A-5 and Apex barrel system for years (since they came out) and over the years I've learned the art of longballing. It is a really fun thing to do as hitting players all the way across the field is both shocking to them, and extremely funny to me!
I was using my j&j barrel tape modded to my Apex 2 tip set on 4 clicks, and running 280FPS.
Do you longball when you play?
31 December 2012 - 10:21 AMI've played in deep snow before, but it was bitterly cold, and I wore so many clothes that it was hard to move... (and I was in worse shape then too...)
Well, Saturday, we had our 34th event at Trails of Doom scheduled, and they were predicting 4-6 inches on TOP of the 4-6 inches we already had (I shoveled my sidewalk, and it was a FOOT deep! I hadn't been in the woods, so I didn't know how deep it would be back there.
14 guys showed up, and I headed back to light the fires and we had a good foot of snow on the ground! And the temps were only around freezing! So it was PERFECT for paintball! The woods were silent and the since there was no wind, the trees were stacked with snow. It was so much fun.
Here are some videos, and when I get time I will edit and post more.
This first one is a compilation of the action.
This one is a full game, game 1.
What is the deepest snow you have played in? Or do you hang up your gear until the it is warm outside?
I was using Co2 as well... Tippmanns ROCK in the cold!
