You Want To Be A Paintball Midman?
Relating to the paintball midman...
The game of paintball is becoming more
and more popular in the country today. But not everybody knows everything about
paintball. The information about the different kinds of players is inadequate,
and people need to know about the different types of positions in a paintball
game before they can play. For example, a paintball midman is a very important
in any paintball game, but few know exactly why that position is so
The terms 'paintball frontman', 'paintball midman' and 'paintball backman'
are usually used in speedball, which is a variant of paintball that is
played at a much higher speed than usual. This game needs raid strategy moves,
and the players do not usually have much time to flesh out decisions. Because
of this, the three positions were evolved. The frontman is the 'first wave'
of the attack, so to speak. The frontman is usually the fastest and most aggressive
player, plunging in without regard to anything but attack. The backman is used
as a back-up, but a very important one. The backman is usually the one who shoots
most of the paint.
The midman is something between those two positions. Paintball midmen are the
people who replace the frontmen when they are hit. The midman usually
has more firepower than the frontman and is considered a link between the other
two positions. This means that paintball midmen have much more important in
play than is usually thought true.
All paintball midmen have to be very good at their play, because they not only
have more firepower than the frontmen, but they also have to replace them. This
means they have to be good with their aim, as well as fast on their feet; otherwise
it is hard to survive in a game of speedball.
The rules of speedball are rather strict, and the paintball midman has to be
careful to obey them, because otherwise his or her position in the game is
precarious, and so is the position of his team, because of his importance
as a member.
But most of the strategies that apply to a midman apply to all players of the
game. All players, while playing, should be careful when they come out to attack.
The paintball midman must also know the approximate position of all the players
of the team, to be able to take the place of the frontman when required.
Thus we see that although speedball is a very fun game to play, it needs skill
and determination to play it. The paintball midman must not only be determined
for his or her team to win, but he or she must keep developing their skills
to improve his game. So have fun being a midman - and do not forget to practice.
