Paintball Tips & Tactics : How to Utilize a Paintball Bunker


Hi this is Rob Rubin and you’re watching Expert
Village. A lot of players when they get in their position they become human whack a moles.
They come down, they come up, they come down, they come up and all they do is hop up from
the same spot over and over again. If you do that you’re going to get smoked because
predictable people get shot. When you are playing a bunker, use every single angle of
the bunker. Now there are some advantages to using specific angles and sometimes you
want to use one over the other so that is a quick explanation to that. A lot of players
when they come up to a bunker they will come over the top of the bunker. They will only
concentrate on working the top angle. This is good because when you work the top angle
you can actually see a lot more of the field because you are not restricted left or right
but there is a big problem with that and that is that your eye line is a lot lower than
the top of your head and your paint ball marker has this big old hopper on top of it so when
you are coming over the top you are exposing yourself before you have a chance to return
your fire or in some cases see who is shooting at you. Other options include going across
the side of the bunker and this is good when you want to play tight because you are exposing
less of yourself when you are coming out of your position. The down side is that when
I am looking at this side of the bunker I cannot see anything to the right. I can see
everything to the left but past this bunker position, nothing. One other angle that a
lot of people tend not to think about is getting really low at the corner of the bunker, literally
almost playing with your paintball marker flat to the ground. You usually have one or
two paintballs loaded into the marker anyway and if you have a force feed hopper you can
probably get about three or four shots off like this. Advantage – well when you are really
low to the ground people don’t expects shots to come from almost ground level. Disadvantage
– you need a really long bunker because ah – yea. Plus when you are at the ground level
you can do one trick that you can’t do any other time. Paintballs are round and when
you shoot them if you hit a surface they are going to want to roll so depending on the
play surface that you have you can skip your balls. That was definitely a good shot, that
hit somebody in the foot.
