Default Favorite tactics in Scenario?

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.

Those who that say a paintball sniper doesn't exist, haven't come across one yet.

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.

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 "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.
