Shooting From The Tree's

I was playing paintball 1 on 1 with my friend in a huge forest area. I have a tippman 98 custom with a 20" barrel. What I did was climbed up a tall tree and sat there on a branch, listening for my friend. I shot a few off hoping to draw him closer. It worked. He followed the sound of my shots. He walked right underneath me and I turned around and I shot 1 paintball off and hit him once in the stomach.

Shooting from Trees

Hey that tip is great if your just playing a backyard style game like you were. Tree climbing is against most field rules due to insurance reasons. And usually being up in a tree is the last place Id want to be against more than one person. If I saw you in a tree, I know that you would have only one way down. And a good fundamental rule is to have more than one way out of a sticky situation. Please dont take this as cruel critisism, just trying to help you out.

Sorry but no

While it may seem that being high brings a good position it's not always the case. The problem with trees is that once you are spotted you are doomed. Once you're up there you can't get down easily and if you don't get shot you might just fall out and break your neck. Sometimes it works, but it's not a good idea.

May work well 1 on 1, but if a few people find you up there you're not likely to sit down in comfort for a while
