I was wondering if anybody has a really good paintball guide.I've seen some but some people say that there aren't really any good ones. Which is the best? Would anybody be willing to make an new awesome one?

I'll sum it up in a few phrases: advance or be advanced upon. Just like Go, the more territory you control, the better. If you don't move up and you just camp in one spot as a team (disregarding the few that should stay behind and guard an objective), you'll be surrounded. Better to back them into a corner then to be the ones with no way out.

Not the best advice guys.

Move. Alot.

New players tend to stand still or hide behind cover. While this seems like a good 'stay alive' strategy, it sets you up for an extremely painful close encounter. Get down on your belly if you have to, just don't stay behind a spot of cover for extended period.

Focus less on them shooting at you, and more on you shooting them. If you get the enemy, they won't be in any position to shoot you. Flank and get personal, especially if your gun is less than stellar. Play to win, in other words.

Watch your fire. Another newbie mistake is they go rambo. If you're flipping out and shooting squirrels, or worse, your team mates, don't expect anyone to bail you out when pinned down, or out of ammo. On that note, don't lone wolf it, but don't stalk the guy with the biggest gun either. Communication is key, even if you're just in a pickup group, make friends and talk. Point out enemies, alert people when something comes up.

Utilize physics. A shrub wont stop bullets, but it can certainly stop paintballs. Same thing goes for tall grass. Realize though, that paint has a nasty habit of splattering on you (You're out!); so use these only to cover your movement or when nothing else is available.

Above all, relax. A bruise or two, maybe a welt. No big deal.

Oh, a good newb guide:

But in Go, you can hold your ground and camp. In fact, you often have too.
