  • Know the field - If you walk the field before the game starts, you will be able to know where you can find cover and where you will be the most vulnerable. Walking the field is a great way to get a leg up on the other team.
  • Teamwork is key - Many paintball players make the mistake of taking big risks in order to try to be the hero. If the risk pays off, you could be earning yourself some individual glory, but if you want a win for your team, you should focus on strategy and teamwork.ย 
  • Communicate with your team - Things can get crazy fast during a game, and if your current strategy isn't working, you have to be able to communicate with your team. Regardless of whether you prefer to shout to one another or use radios, effective communication will help to improve your team's game like nothing else.
