Paintball – Games Rules & Tactics : ‘Hostage Rescue’ Paintball Game Strategies


This is Robert Stewart with Hill13.com. Now
we’re going to talk about some, some conceptual strategies to play the game hostage rescue
and play it effectively from both the perspective of the rescuer and the terrorist squads, the,
the terrorist holding one of the party of the rescuers. When you look at the map this
is a very simply representation, and these are just generalized elements to connotate
that there is cover in these locations. The terrorist hideouts are here and here. The
red team is starting from far afield over on one side and the sanctuary area is, is
marked out here. Now we’re only going to lightly go through this because a lot of the tactics
in terms of team play, communication, aggression, cover and things we’ve covered before and
we’ll cover yet again. But you have to look at the field and remember that the red team,
the rescuers can’t hit their own guy, if they do, they’re dead. These guys, the green team
can’t hit this guy if they do, they’re dead. One of the ways to look at how you un-bunker
and safely protect this red team member and get him into the sanctuary is the way in which
you array your forces and what those forces do. In this generalized and very simple description
the way to look at this is, bring your players in such a way that when they line up on the
first point of contact that they make, they concentrate their fire and try not to worry
about the long term objective. Short term you have to dig out and eliminate players
to get your forces closer and closer to the terrorist hide out. Now if you were lucky
enough to take out this guy from a distance, you can bet they’re going to reinforce that
position and keep someone with the hostage. So you have to be patient enough to take your
time, cover one another as you make your moves. And once you have broken down one side and
can make your move on the hostage to be rescued you have to remember to leave enough team
members on this side to protect you when you ex-filtrate or remove your hostage and head
for sanctuary. What that means is that as the entire team moves in to secure the hostage,
they’re covering whatever other players are left on the green team and suppress their
fire long enough to give you a clear extraction zone and head for sanctuary. When this happens
and you begin moving these players here that have formed your new defensive line are going
to retreat with you. And it doesn’t matter if they hit these players or not, all that
it matters is they prevent these players from getting near your hostage and taking out the
rescuers who are returning him to sanctuary.
