23 February 2010 - 04:01 PMSaid I lost half my units? Probably means I'm somewhere near the middle of the field. In that case I would take my snipers off defense and send them to the mid field boundary lines with the orders not to engage unless found.
Then I'd make a diversion for them with a hard-fought fighting retreat.
Once, the OpFors' main group has passed the Snipers, I'd radio them to head for the enemy base and give me a sit rep on the enemies' defenses.
Everyone else would fall back on Defense to eliminate the large opfor threat (hopefully the opfor will be a little overconfident and sned most of their players), 8 on D should be able to handle 20 attackers (not that they'd be that stupid as to send everyone).
After the offensive was put down I would rally almost all my men and "strong side" the OpFor's flag based on the info that my Snipers have radioed back to me. Hopefully I will have enough time to get the flag back to my own base.
ok so i assume that the attackers are allready out in the field. its now two to one what you wanna do is stage a fighting retreat. Making the attackers pay for every inch they gain. make sure to keep an accurate count. And as you probably fell into an ambush (thats why you just lost half your guys) the other team is going to try to finish you off quickly. If you have some snipers left (gillie suit type) get them out of the nitty gritty retreat and into some ambush positions. You wont havemjuch time to do this so make sure your attackers are mobile (should have been done before game begain) In the confusion it might even be possible to sneak a guy behind their lines while retreating. Once back at the base. fortify the side they are coming from. thin their ranks. if you were able to sneak that guy around have him let them have it from behind. Once youve taken a significant number of them out, go on offense, attack their base ands whats left of their defense from at least two sides and get the flag.
I agree. That's pretty close to what I said
06 February 2010 - 10:35 AMThanks for all the replys. You've been very helpful...a good remote and cover will have to be my next investment after i finish my qbow and ghillie:P
Also whats a good tank pouch to use when you have a remote? i saw spec ops has a leg one, but does it work well?
I have one of those leg pouches from SpecOps and absolutely hate the thing!
Man, had high hopes for it too. It's just the extra weight on my knee, the awkward mass getting caught on stuff, and the bottle it's self bouncing on your leg that makes it suck so bad. I would really recommend a cheap 2 pod/1 pouch pod pack or even the SpecOps Recruit Vest but never the leg pouch.
It may work good for pods and everything else but it's the only thing that I've ever regretted buying from the SpecOps factory.
06 February 2010 - 10:31 AMWith a longbow stock, is it better to go on gun air or with a remote line? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? Also whats the best tank pouch for use with a ghillie suit?
I would really recommend running your air on your back. The longbow is so incredibly light (my friend has one that he lets me use every now and then) it blows my mind. The lightweight of the gun is a great advantage when snap shooting and similar skills.
As far as the pouch? I just run with a basic 2 pod 1 tank pouch. My belt loops through it and I have never had problems with it being seen of getting in the way. Real cheap too. One of these days I'm going to try out the SpecOps Recruit vest. I think that would be ideal for paintball sniping
06 February 2010 - 10:17 AMI have played paintball only a couple times with my cousins and have a crappy $20 gun. I am working on starting a team that plays competitive but is doing it for fun. I am going to be playing Dagger position because of my speed and uncanny fearlessness. I am thinking I need a fast, light, small gun. After doing some looking I am trying to decide between the Tippmann A-5 and 98 custom. Which would you recommend for a Dagger thats starting out. I need something that will last me a long time without having to buy a new gun for a couple years. Are these good choices or are they not the best? I also need to keep it under $200 if at all possible. Cheaper the better. I have played airsoft a lot so i know my way around the battlefield so I am not a total Noob. I usually snipe in airsoft but want to get more into the action playing dagger. Thanks for the help.
Dude totally go with the A5 over the 98C. I've owned both guns but the A5 is way better. I absolutely love my A5. You can modify it to fit however you play and boy is it dependable! I promise you that you'll never regret the choice. It's like the AK-47 of paintball guns; Been out for a while but still top of the line.
06 February 2010 - 10:10 AMWow, Tyger, that is so awesome to hear! Only recently have my friends and I found your videos and from what I've see so far; you're right on the money. I especially like the idea of hanging targets for practice (why didn't I think of that sooner!?) also, I was really impressed with your "The Gauntlet" video. It gave me some good ideas on how I could modify your approach from "Assaulting the Flag" to "Hit and Run" tactics for paintball sniping.
Anyways, keep up the good work. Real glad to see you here.
