What's your favorite tactic to use in SCENARIO paintball as a part of your overall strategy to win? Please post why and share what you have to say with the rest of us! you may end up bringing someone to a victory! Just remember, some of these may be tied into eachother in certain strategies, but I am asking which one is your favorite ALONE to use against an enemy.

For me, i personally love to ambush people, it creates a kodak moment. MR2: $170... Scope: $40... M16 Apex barrel: $100... Seeing the look on your friend's face as you surprise him while lighting him up: priceless. :D

Because i like to snipe I would go ambush, although in many situations your answears are combined if you are ambushing a group and the commander is there he would be the optimal target. As for the Fragmentation these are the groups you usually target as a lone sniper you dont want to go after to large of a group, if they decide to get payback, and they often do, things could get real nasty for the sniper.
As a sniper if you are with a group you are always on the flank 15-20 feet into the bush, if you encounter a party and a firefight insues you are to flank the party, but be aware usually you have your own team shooting at you to!

So i guess if you had another option of "all of the above" I would pick that one!
Good poll.

I'm a big fan of divide and conquer. I have found that a 'wedge'
or 'spear'
down the center of the field with one or two flankers per side, works extremely well.

Add a few support players in the center back, making up the spear shaft, to cover rear and fill in the 'spear head' players that get eliminated...works EXTREMELY well.

i like harassing my friend, he will be walking threw and not see me then i shoot a few balls around him to freak him out, he runs for cover and starts yelling at me, calling me every name in the book. my cover is useually blown then because i start laughing and move to thicker cover. my old mr1 doesnt have the full auto like that junk 98 he uses lol

When I would play woodsball, on a certain field I would Sneak around and circle the team if we could. And then fire at them at random and waste some paint, to get in there head. Once we did that we would just squeeze them into the middle, with us surrounding them. We basically tried to combine them all into one. It didnt work all the time, because sneaking around would be really hard, and there was only one field we could do it on. It was fun, especially when it worked.

I like playing in your face thought, otherwise

I prefer the whole sneak around or break the flanks and then take the rest from the side /behind.

you shoulda made it pick asmany as you want....but i choose ambush im a sniper what can i say

i liek the whole silent ambushing/flanking...works really well when they dont know anyone went that way then they just get lit up

I prefer the "Baited" ambush mixed in with flanking. 1 or 2 players bait (engage then fall back) getting the other team to commit into pursuing them until their within the kill zone, then rest of team springs the ambush, while the bait flanks and comes in from the rear cleaning up anyone trying to retreat.
Another favorite is "wagon-wheeling" which works great when assaulting a fortified area. It's similar to the old cowboys and indians movies where the indians went around and around attacking points until they were able to find a hole and then dash for the center and work your way out from there.

problem with the baited ambush is if you have a fast thinkg leader of that group he would realize that following may not be the best situation...he would then send a small group after the bait......tha way if those two get taken out then itgs not a big deal...well thats atleast what i do when im the leader of my group

behead.. Taking leaders out is very important. Without the leaders, the scenario can be compremised for them

ambush, if not go all out where the enemy gets scared and doesent know what to do but to be exposed.

05-20-2008, 05:40 PM
Lots of cover fire from front then small team(s) in flanking position move in. My fav.

05-20-2008, 05:50 PM

ambush. sprinitng as far up as you can and then laying down. I like it when I can let them pass me up and shoot them from behind. I might not get this very often but hearing "hey I am on your team!" makes the sprints worth it LoL.

I love just sitting back and as they come up you scare the **** out of them come out from bushes, trenches and just mess them up. Like the movie Red Dawn, not sure if you have seen it.the perfect Lure attack is in that movie. When they chased that girl ( i think her name is Polly) and they chased after her and about 4 guys popped out form the ground and killed them.

Perfect! obviously it is in the movies and i never popped out of the ground but that is just awesome. Plus the oh s***s and oh f***s just make it awesome.
