So, I play semi auto with a Etek 3. Pinokio. And an empire 45/45 tank. I carry 3 pods and no nose cone on the pinokio.
P.S. I play rec SpeedBall and a bit of WoodsBall.

if you really want to monitor it set it to capped semi at around 5 balls per second and go out with one less pod every time you get use to carrying that many pods until you only carry a hopper out.

When I was playing Saturday the first game I played I used a hopper plus 2 of the three pods I was wearing. After that I just played hopper ball and I never ran out of paint, even playing speedball.

Put on a 50 round hopper. There's someone on here that took a picture of it with an ego. Can't remember who.

I think going out with just a hopper is your answer. It will teach you trigger control the hard way.

Yeah... Rec-Ball might as well be restricted hopper-ball. You don't need anymore than that for the couple of snaps you'll do, and then running down the last person who might just surrender anyway

Uummm, theres really no truth to that if you're talking about speedball. to be competitive beyond rec-ball you have to shoot lanes and shoot bunkers to hold players down, just part of the game.

If you're talking about general rec play...I still don't know why you would say that, it's just an arbitrary imposement.

Mainly to truly save a lot of paint, play pump. If you want to keep the same setup though, I would suggest only shoot when you know you have a shot just don't miss lol. Give no covering fire, don't constantly shoot at their cover, if you think they're too far away to even hit than don't bother shooting, set your bps lower, maybe get closer to them so you can just shoot them once or twice

There's your problem. Use a smaller capacity loader like an eggy or a halo.

Uh yeah no lol.

Be more aggressive. Don't gunfight, if nobody's shooting at you move up. If somebody is shooting at you, put them in and move up.

I can last 2 speedball games on a hopper, if im playing agaisn't really agressive players (I usually am) I have to use a pod, what I do is I just rip when I see them, if I don't see them and have to shoot for some reason I use 1 finger on the trigger and shoot every 0.5 seconds or so.

But once they pop out its no limits, that way you can still have fun shooting and have a happier wallet.

Pretty much...

OP- You're not going to save paint. Trust me, I tried when I had my Axe and I still played the same but I'd run out of paint earlier. 50 rd hoppers helped quite a bit. I eventually just switched to pump.

That's the thing, I play OC pump a lot. I honestly don't think there is an impossible shot on the field. If paint will carry that far I'll try the shot. Wind, air currents, paint, humidity it all matters. Using 16 feet of hold over and 2 feet left for a shot that will only break on a mask or gun at that range is crazy satisfying even if I only connect a couple of times a day on those really long shots. Of course the percentage goes way up as you get closer.

I use a 100 rd Sport shot hopper and carry 2 - 100 rd pods. Usually 2 games worth. Play all day on a half case or so. I find pump satisfying as I don't out gun or out spend anyone I'm playing against. I watch plenty of players shoot up my daily ration of paint in a single game then only play 2-3 games all day and chat with friends the rest of the time. I've got all week to talk, Saturday is my zen time the field is my holy place. I want to play every game I can. OC pump is the best balance for me.

If you're a good snake player, you don't shoot as much.

I disagree, the loader has nothing to do with how much you shoot, it's dependent on the user. All it does is load the paint. You don't HAVE to fill it up all the way, maybe fill it up to the halfway and play like that?

Tips I can give you for woods/rec
-Don't longball.
-Take shots your sure you can hit them with
-Be a sneaky barrel tagging ninja of death.
-Play Hopperball
-Cap your semi?

Tips for speedball
-Leave the laning to the back players,
-Play front
-Semi semi semi (or psp 12.5 if you shooter faster then ramping)
-Don't lane off break
-Don't longball (seriously. Don't do it.)

As parents who play we aren't much better off. "Just work more, get more money" ideas are pretty short sighted. If I had more resources could I in good conscience spend it on myself? All my kids could use something. I can't work many extra hours without harming my kids, spouse or relationships. Paintball is my release in life and a huge joy, I need it.

So I shoot less... That's the game I can play most often. Many reasons, this is the best solution for me.
