Paintball Field Position
As a new paintball team, we had lot of problems handling things like: where we should go and what position we should play in. Through practice we discovered the best field positions (amature level).
For example, in a seven man paintball match, it is vital for you to play 3 front 4 back style. This means that there should should be cross shooting all the time. As a new team we were told to play 4 in front and 3 in back. But we soon discovered that this will put more pressure on the front players since their survival is crucial. It also exposed more of our front to the enemy than we thought.
In any paintball game the snake is a vital aspect. The guy who has both speed and good reflexes should play it.
Next, the middle guy, he should have good vision on what is going on in both sides of the field (left and right). This does not mean that he will have to expose himself in order to do so, but he should know whats going on on both sides.
Next is the guy in the corner (he is like the snake guy), and should be really fast and should have good reflexes, or they will be shot in the break.
Good aim is very necessary in paintball, and it is also very important for you to shoot from the word go. I mean, not the guys who are running to the front, but the other 4 people should start shooting at the opposite bunkers, like the enemy entrance of the snake and the other corners. This will prevent the enemy from getting to those paintball bunkers at the start, and this will give your front men more space to advance into enemy territory, and the even shoot off enemies with ease.
