Do you have any tips on moving up the dorito side without getting shot should i try shooting and going or bumbing and siding

well its usually home or a someone between D1 and home that gets me or someone a little closer to the snake but never snake, when im bumping up should i shoot while im bumping or just shoot then dive in as quick as i can?

First time I pop out to snap shoot I fire two ball to adjust my aim and get the feel for where I need to shoot. From that point on I aim just outside the edge of the bunkers so they can see the balls fly by which forces them to wait or wrap around.
When I hide again and they start shooting, i try to see if I can hear their marker before the ball hits my bunker.
If I can the the next time I pop out I start putting balls down the both sides of their bunkers and then post up. When they pop out try to shoot them then but if I don't get them I hide again.
Once we commence the battle I rush to a bunker on the side they did not pop out on and shoot them in the back.
One time a guy tried to bunker me while we were snap shooting but because I was moving for the better angle I came around my bunker and shot him the back.
Although if the other person on his team was looking then I would have been out.

then you need to work on that. moving is the key to paintball

Oh and practice snapping from behind cover and shooting a soda can that's hanging from a string. At least 15 yards away. Btw you should also learn to not have to aim by looking at the first shot. You should develop a "feel" for where it's going to land. Practice this by only shooting once for every time you snap shoot that can. Good luck, peace.

Keep in mind that you shouldn't be trying to "thread the needle" with a paintball gun, it's just not going to happen without a good bit of luck.

If you find yourself in the awkward situation of trying to longball your mirror playing back GOOD LUCK they are awful far away for anything to be really effective, just hope god likes you that particular day. Shoot high and try to time up his snaps to have paint already in the air when he snaps out and hope it hits something hard like a hopper or mask.
