Step 1: Getting a Gun/ Barrel
I recommend a good sturdy gun, like a tippmann model 98, A-5. or
Other guns, like Spyders or pumps, can work very well
If you already have a good working gun, i would recomend a good, acurate after-market barrel. If you have the extra green, get a barrel with multiple insert bores. If you have a tippmann, get a flatline, cause nothing will work as well with that type of gun.
Step 2: The Uniform
First- Paintballs can hurt
Second- always wear a paintball rated saftey mask
Now back to buisness...
Get yourself some good camo, or a ghillie suit. These will help hide you from the enemy. Army surplus duds will work well, but ghillie will give you some extra hiding ability.
Bonus question: Can you see the guy?
Step 3: Tactics
-the best defense is to get your a** behind a good old oak
-use your camo to mimic your environment, that sometimes works better than the tree
- one way to kill fools is to stalk. Stand, you will walk, legs slightly spread, enough so that the legs of your pants do not rub together, thus making no noise. when you step, roll the outside of your foot on to the inside, reducing step noise.
Sorry if I could not explain things too well, drop a comment if you have any questions!
Step 4: Taking Down Iron Gaints
One way to take them down is to get a nerf rocket launcher, take a shot, and laugh as the beast trundles to the dead box
Or you could chuck a paintball grenade at the massive tin can. Examples are Tippmann Squadbusters of Specops F Bombs.
Step 5: Other Stuff
-extra air tank
-own paint (cuts costs)
-map of field
-GUN REPAIR KIT
- paper towles
