How to Play Paintball : How to Move Up on a Paintball Field


Hello, this is Rob Rubin and you’re watching
Expert Village. Come on, move up move up move up, go go go, move up move up. Now, when you
hear somebody yelling that on the field, odds are they are not trying to live up a faketish
War World II moment, they’re actually trying to help you out. Moving up on the field is
crucial to winning the game. Let me show you why, after I get this guy. Alright, understand
that paintball is played on a field that has boundaries that is X by Y, just like that.
Now, it doesn’t take a genius to tell you that if the field is only so large, which
ever team owns more of the field is going to be victorious and that’s what moving up
does or more correctly that’s what the effective moving up does. By moving up, basically what
you’re doing is taking angles away from the other team, number one. Number two, you’re
gaining angles for your team, you’re taking more real estate for your team and quiet frankly,
it’s a lot more fun to just move up than it is to hang back all again. So how far should
you move up? Obviously you shouldn’t like run from your twenty five to your fifty, unless
it’s extremely extrordinary circumstances. But a couple rules of thumb; number one if
nobody is shooting at you, odds are nobody is looking at you. I also try to keep the
three second rule in mind and that is how far can I move in three seconds? It usually
takes an opponent to see me, bring the paintball marker up to there and start shooting, that
is if they’re not looking at me. Now, if they are looking, what you’re going to do is you’re
going to give yourself cover fire. Before you take off you’re going to shoot paint at
the opponent, that’s going to make him duck, probably for two to three seconds. That’ll
buy you your two to three seconds so that you can bump up from your bunker to the next
bunker. Another time when you’re moving up is if nobody can see you. If you’re playing
in a very high grass field, a field where you can get the delta advantage, take it.
Crawling through the weeds unseen is just as good as breaking down in the middle of
the field. It gets you into an advantageous position. You thought I forgot about them,
didn’t you? Now something about moving up and this happens to me quiet a bit. A lot
of times when you’re moving into your new bunker, you find out it’s the absolute worse
place that you ever really wanted to be. Make the best of it, whatever you do, don’t stop
in the middle of nowhere and try to figure out what options you have left. Once you make
the commitment, go all the way man, don’t stop. There are times you do not want to move
up. For example; when you know that there’s more than one person shooting at you, that’s
a bad time to move up. This is when you communicate to your team where those guys shooting at
you are and then they can flank. All in all, moving up the field is a main stay of the
game. You can’t just sit in the back and win paintball games, they don’t win themselves,
you’ve got to go get the flags, they don’t capture themselves and come back to you, you’ve
got to go get them.
