Tactical Paintball Strategies: movement mistakes

Moving Too Fast

When you move too fast, two things happen. First, your awareness goes down. Second, when moving too fast you attract visual attention. If you have to move, particularly when you are camouflaged in waiting, do it slowly, very slowly.

Moving Too Sloppy

We are a society of the 7 second attention span. When sitting in wait or when moving in a high-ready stalk, limit your movements to the bare necessities. Get used to letting mosquitoes bite you. Get used to sweat dripping in your eye. Build up your tolerance. Limit your movements. Get efficient.

Moving Too Much Like You’re Wandering Aimlessly At The Mall With A Double Scoop Waffle Cone In Your Hand

Put on your tactical paintball sniper mindset. I like to call it “stacking the real”. You ARE in danger. You ARE the only thing that stands between harm and your teammates. The more you can convince your mind of the reality of your training, the more your mind will direct your body to respond. In the words of the cruel but deadly tactician, Ghengis Khan: “As you train, so shall you fight.”

I’ve seen tons of people dressed like a “paintball sniper”. I’ve seen tons of people put on the camouflage and wander the trails of the woodsball field thinking they’re invisible but moving like orangutans. I’ve seen very few people with the discipline to do what it takes to really play a tactical paintball sniper game.

This is a summary of my published article. You can read the whole thing here:

you are kind of write moving slow can help you but moving fast can also throw your opponent off guard and trying to focus on where the sounds are coming from and if your very fast you can pull it off
