1. Marker / Equipment

  • Make sure the paintball marker will shoot and cycle properly.
  • You also need to make sure your marker is accurate and that the paintballs are flying as straight as they can. It is important that you check your marker for broken paintballs in the hopper, breach, or barrel. If so, you need to clean, dry, and swab your marker and barrel.
  • When you are gearing up to play make sure you fill up your HP Air tank and fill hopper with dry and clean Paintballs.
  • Seeing properly is very important in playing paintball, make sure goggles are clean and will not fog when you’re playing.
  1. Snap Shooting

  • Stay behind cover and do not stand in the open.
  • Always face your bunker or anything you are trying to shoot at. Make sure to shoulder the tank against your body and aim down the barrel.
  • You start your Snap Shot while you are hiding behind cover, pre aim down the barrel of your marker. It helps to know what your target is that you are shooting at.
  • When you think the time is right you need to snap out with your upper body and take a quick shot at your target and then snap back in behind cover.
