11 April 2009 - 12:41 PMI watched two guys put out some trip mine. Then I just stood up from behind my cover, and let a few rounds loose. These two noobs turn around and walk right into the mine they set up. I just looked at them as they walked away, and they hid their faces in shame.

09 April 2009 - 09:30 PMThere's another great trick I've learned with Air Force STT's (Special Tactis Teams-yes, there are Air Force ground pounders. And they are particularly mean. )
It's called leapfrogging, and it takes some skill to get down. Basically, it's an alternative to a banzai charge, but one that works a lot better, and the only people that get hit are the ones down range.
The leapfrog only works in one situation. Basically, you need to have an enemy position that you want to take, and a stretch of ground with some cover at a few intervals. Send two of your men to the first cover location, with their butts down, while you and your team light up the defenders. Then repeat the process, until everyone is at the desired cover. After you've moved to your first cover, it's advisable to hunker down for a few moments and let your SAW gunner convince your opponents that they want to retreat. Once the enmy again has their heads down, do it all over again.
Of course, you need to make sure you aim high, above your advancing teammates. It's bad enough to get out by friendly fire, getting nailed in the back of the head or the butt is just inhumane.
So, if you ever use it, remember you got it from a "Chair Force" officer.

09 April 2009 - 06:39 AMWhen all your stuff fails, use sheer force. More guns, more grenades, more mines, more paint out of your guns. Nothing stops a team of high tech babies than a clod of paint flying at them.
but remember, it doesn't matter if you beat them into the ground, paintball is still a game. Don't get mad, get glad.
