Advanced Paintball Tactics : Advanced Paintball: Movement Hand Signals


This is Robert Stewart with Hill thirteen.com.
Now I’m going to demonstrate to you some of the basic hand signals that you can use with
your team to communicate without having to verbally give that information to your teammate
and thus expose your position. The first of these hand signals can be broken down as movement
signals or directional signals. They’re very simple and once you’ve used them a couple
of times, you’ll be able to use them fluently. Another good thing about visual signals is
because they are so simple, you really don’t have to have them tapped on the top of your
hopper the way you do with verbals. These signals go as follow. Stop, hand up, in a
fist and just give it a little shake so that they see it. The next one is go, which is
just the old Calvary signal, hand back, to the front. The next one is down and you communicate
that from sweeping your hand from up high, to down low. When you sweep that way, that
means get down. The next one is placing your hand on the top of your goggles, this way,
that means “cover me.” The next signal is pumping your fist up and down in the air,
that means “go faster.” The next one is pointing like a gun and it means “take bunker.” The
next one is the waving of your fingers back and forth like this means “crawl.” So, you
could combine these signals and build simple sentences that describe either your action,
or what you want your teammate to do.
