Ghillie suits are key.

But seriously, make sure, if it's not at a field, that the people are playing under 300 fps. I know a lot of people around here who want me to play, and I won't because it's unsafe.

I know they are all shooting high... But I'll put a couple on them before they can hit me...

Ghillie suit, ftw. I'm going to make my own.

Meh...even though you are, I'm sure, better then them, I'd still make them all get their guns chronoed...

Oh..and if you get shot in the twig and berries at that high of velocity...you will die.

I didn't know a paintball gun could shoot 300fps.One tip is to use your invironment to your advantage.

I've seen a Tippmann chronoed at around 370 fps. And I'm sure it could get a lot higher.

Also...be sure to put ghillie all over your gun.

Just be agressive, they will hide and you will shoot them. , anyway, you wont die if you get shot in the nads at over 350. I got shot at 350 with a tippy in the downstairs, and I am still fully functional. It did hurt a bit though.

I was exaggerating. But I do agree that it hurts quite a bit.

my only tip is dont be afraid to go out there and shoot some people ciz the only thing that i truly hate with the game (other than cheaters and the obious stuff) is the people that run away in the midst of a good battle...

but use the bunkers and angles to ur advantage + take the easy shot wile u have it and dont be afraid of someone else shooting you.(mostlikly it wont happen if your positioned right)

Take it somewhere nearby, or call the manufacturer. Also, for woodsball, gilly suits are NOT needed, and not on the gun either. I played in plain camo, with a black gun, yet I could get within 10-20yd without the other team noticing. There was a clearing with some tall grass, and even in dark camo with them looking right where I was, there could not see me, make sure to move some of whatever over you if you are dramatically different (dark vs. light or visa versa. All I did was crawl back into the grass so that my barrel wouldn't hit anything and splatter (we don't play small splatters), and then fired off two quick shots, eliminating those two.

Also, "look before you leap." Actually, in this case, before you run. The first priority is to check for enemies. The second is to find WHERE you are going to run before you do. If you have anybody with you on your team, move one at a time, covering each other. The third thing you do is to check again for the other team. If you don't see them, then you can make your move.

This works with all, but if somebody shoots at you, turn enough so that if it must hit you, it will slide across. I know you can't always know, but it helps. Most paintballs bounce quite a bit.

If you see somebody aiming at you, or firing at you, shoot a few back, even if just to distract them. That split second duck or blink or where they lose sight behind the air coming out (see, there is a use for it) is enough to get you out of danger.

About being stealthy, don't make any unneccesary movements. If you have to move, and somebody is looking at you, go slowly. That is of course, unless you MUST MUST MUST move fast or you are TRYING to get their attention.
