what is a paintball tank?!?

xXxMattThePossumxXx made it!(author)2010-12-12

it is essentially an old truck with much plywood and numerous paintball guns bolted to it. Some use more creativity, some less

ive actually seen some use golf carts or gokarts and mod/customize them into a tank with an actual cannon

Props to you friend. While not all fields allow paintgrenades, and one rarely sees tanks or bazookas outside of a big game, a fantastic guide, with usable info. kudos

smokes work well for tactical retreats and advances or just general confusion

i dont reccomend aiming for the head, id aim for the torso, because
a)itsbigger to hit 
b)hits count anywhere on the body - so the bigger the target - the higher chance ofgetting a hit - including pod pack/tac vest
c)its not nice getting hit in the side of the head

also try and get a barrel tag, its more of a stealth kill.

or if you're a member of the paint-flingers-club (use an electro, such as a tourney marker or an ion, sp1, mac dev, etc)  open fire keeping the enemy pinned down to allow you to either move forward, and get an elimination, or make a tactical retreat.
