    Playing Tight In Any Bunker There is nothing worse than catching a pack hit from the opposite side of the field while you are trying to maintain dominance on your side of the field. Something that every player can always improve upon is being better at playing the bunker as tight as possible. Each bunker shape requires you to adapt, to become harder to...

    Reasons For Hipshooting

    A lot of times people will see a professional player shooting from the hip, and typically it is one-handed so people look at it and assume it’s pure laziness. Little do they know that players do this for several reasons, so I will list my top reasons for shooting from the hip at certain times.     Reason #1 moves the gun further from...

    Every Player Should Have 2+ Lenses!

      One of the most overlooked pieces of equipment is the lens. However, this should be one of the most vital and overstocked products that every player should have. Considering we are often playing in lowlight and bright light situations, in the rain and late evenings, the more options to see better should be a top priority.  Every player should always at least have...

    Pro Tip: Non-verbal Communication

    3 comments
    Non-verbal Communication Non-verbal communication is often overlooked by tournament paintball players. It’s a great way to communicate during certain circumstances. Whether you’re baiting an opposing player, trying to be stealthy, or even if you’re having trouble being heard. So much information could be completely lost if you choose to not use simple hand signals or body gestures when you're in a position that requires...

    Record Yourself Playing One of the best things you can do to become better at paintball is to record yourself during drills, practice, and gameplay. It is great to be able to review yourself and critique yourself whether it is your form, your speed, your playing style and so much more.     One of the great things about recording yourself while playing paintball...

    Cross-Body Snap-Shot The cross-body snap-shot is a very difficult shot and takes a lot of practice to be able to perform this shot with accuracy, speed, and without showing too much of yourself or your gun. The reason for the cross-body snap-shot is so that you can very quickly transition from the side you are shooting, to the other side and place an accurate...

    Communication: Strong Keywords Communication is one of the most important skill sets in paintball and would require hours to break down the best ways to communicate.

The quicker the information can be relayed and processed, the faster you can react and win.     Common scenarios that can be put into...

    PRO DRILL: Multiple Player Flow Drill Setup

    Multiple Player Flow Drill Setup Drills are essential to becoming a better paintball player and team. However, one big issue with target drills is the standby time for players not actively engaged in the drill. By setting up a multiple player flow drill you can have more players drilling at the same time and reducing their downtime. This will help with endurance, and keeping...

    Cross Field Snap Shooting + Running & Shooting Drill

    Cross Field Snap Shooting + Running & Shooting Drill   This is a two phase drill with multiple objectives and consequences. The drill works on cross field snap shooting accuracy, moving and shooting with limited shots, consequences for misses which simulates being exhausted towards the end of the match, and straight forward snap shooting.  First, you need two targets and four bunkers. I prefer...

    Zone Control

        ZONE CONTROL       A huge deciding factor on winning games easily is proper zone control. Far too often do I see teams eliminate players off the break from a side, then shoot the next widest guy, but they let a player fill over and they lose control of that side. If you ask any player, the scariest thing is when...

    Reduce Your Snapshot Profile

    One of the oldest tricks to seeing your profile while snap shooting is by doing it in the mirror. That is great for working on your paintball game at home, but it doesn't give you that real deal feel!      When you head out to the field to do some snap shooting drills, try placing your camera on the edge of your bunker...

    Over The Top Snap-shooting

    4 comments
    Snap-shooting over the top of the bunker is one of the trickiest snapshots of all. You are more exposed and it is much slower than snap-shooting from the side. However it is a crucial move and one of the most common mistakes is getting too close to the bunker.  If you are able to position yourself slightly back you can allow your barrel to...

      Snap-shooting is one of the most crucial skills to train in paintball. Not everyone on the field will get to lane on the break, or play the snake, or bunker someone in every single point, but almost everyone will find themselves in a snap shooting situation in every single point they play.    This drill is great for improving your muscle memory, your...

    MY TOP 3 TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR SNAP SHOT

    I follow three simple rules when I snap shoot.  1) I roll out and in, instead of using all of my body.  2) I aim small miss small. I never try to just shoot the whole target.  3) I imagine I have an invisible line or rope attached from my barrel to the target.  SHOP THE LOOK Gun: Virtue Paintball Black Fire ACE Luxe...

      Far too often I watch people slowly walk off the field and into their team pit. Then when they get into the pits they are busy sharing war stories and discussing nothing of importance. Then they are left rushing out last minute to the starting gate only to be pressured into making a last second choice and breaking out improperly.    Whether you're...

    Visualize Success & Take Action   Everyone has their own ways of mentally and physically preparing for matches. For me, I like to visualize the match or point actually being played.

        No one likes to see their teammate get shot out, but the difference in a skilled player and a non-skilled player is the way they use the information provided by their eliminated teammate. Now we all know that dead players are not allowed to talk, but you can easily use gathered information from that player without even conversing or breaking any of...

    WRAP - SHOOT - MOVE

    15 comments
    A crucial technique that I look for in up and coming paintball players, is their field awareness along with aggression. Many players move from bunker to bunker, immediately after shooting in their wire and completely fail to check off the center of the field where the "camper" is typically waiting for them. I'd much rather see a player wrap shoot and move, vs them...

     GUN UP LOADING  A very crucial skill to learn in tournament paintball is how to load with your gun up. Loading gun up is not always done in the form of defense, but also in aggression and maintaining control. I've noticed in my years of helping divisional players that a huge common flaw that most of them have is losing control of a situation....
