1. Make a Game Plan
Before each paintball game starts the field supervisor will give each team a little time to talk and make a game plan. It’s always good to split up your team between people who lay down cover fire, and people move up quick. It is also a good idea to try to spread your whole team evenly across the field to be able to take advantage of all the possible shooting angles.
Paintball, airsoft and laser tag are team sports that require you to communicate in order to win. This fact makes it one of the best reasons for having a [COMPANY PARTY]. It is important to talk to your teammates throughout the game so you can call out where you see members of the other team. If you really want an upper hand the next time you’re out playing, take a minute before the game starts and make a few code words for your team to use. A good example would be yelling bravo before you want to move up so your team would know to cover you, but the other team won’t know you’re coming!
3. Move Up
As the game progresses the other team will learn where most of your players are. Moving up can help you get a new angle on a player you couldn’t see before. It also acts in confusing the opposition. If you really have a good ear, sometimes you can notice that everyone on the other team is shooting at other players. If that ever happens seize the moment and make a move! Those that make moves win games.
4. Take Good Cover
Before the game starts, players who have played before start picking out which spot they will take cover in right away. You want to pick a spot on the field where you know you can get some good shots on the other team and help your teammates stay alive! Either way, make sure when you get to your bunker to stay tucked in tight. If you give them just an extra foot you’ll find yourself a little more painted up!
5. Have Fun with It
When you’re playing paintball, airsoft or laser tag don’t get too worried about getting eliminated. It is part of the games and trust us, it happens to everyone! If you want to try to make a crazy move and run up the field or take a harder bunker to get to, give it a try. Run fast, play hard and get your heart pumping. Just make sure your teammates have your back before you do! Over several games, players start to go to the same spots and fall into a routine of what they expect each game. Mixing it up with a different or wacky plan can actually catch your opponents off guard and help you get the upper hand!
