I just decided i use way to much paint when i realized i go into every game with at least 7 pods and usually go through 4-5 pods every match. But then again i do play back or mid so i feel like for a back player thats not that much any thoughts.

My field is $90/case and me being 13... I can only afford to shoot like a bag a day. There is another field that has $45 paint but the field sucks.

well i buy my paint at my local paintball shop so its like $45 for good solid paint no way im paying what my field charges all the cases are like $20 extra for example my field charges $80 for evil were as my local store only charges $60 so dose not make much sense to me to buy at a field BUT that said it also means i have to buy two cases at least before i go so i dont run out. the sad part is i still sometimes run out /cry.

i've never had to use 3 pods during a speedball game but i'd suggest you only put down cover paint when needed.
1. lane one spot(10seconds)
2.cover front player from a key bunker so he can move up(10)
3.make your own move .(after 20 seconds)
= less paint used
speaking for the mid player in you. Posted ImageGL

Usually burst firing will help you save paint while still keeping guys in their bunkers you don't really need a constant stream.Also random bursts are more difficult to predict than a stream.Also move up faster then you usually do, this will also help

Ive learned from experience that pooling paint with your teammates will be the best thing to do when it comes to paint consumption. Getting in the habit of NOT shooting a lot as a back player is not a good idea. If you start holding back and only shooting like 2-3 pods + a hopper every point, you will have that same mentality when going to an event. You have to shoot the right amount to play your position correctly. When pooling paint with the team, since the front players use less paint and the back players use more, if everyone pitches in lets say a case, everyone will be able to shoot their acceptable paint amount. Everyone does their jobs, and no one is out more money than the next.

My field is $60 a case for a case of Draxxus Field.... Lol. It's awful paint.

I go to academy and buy RPS Premium for $55 and it's a thousand times better. Spend $5 less to shoot much better paint? Fuck yes.

2 cases a game day. It doesn't matter how much paint you shoot, it matters how many people you hit!

And the real answer is what are you doing that day? If I go out to play rec ball on speedball or airball, I tend to one ball and only shoot a stream when I think I need to hit someone that moment. If I'm playing with my team at a practice, I'll shoot more. If I'm at an actual team scrimmage or tournament? I rarely stop shooting from the start of the game until either I'm shot or their last guy is shot.

The difference in how useful you are between 1-2 pods a game and 4-5 pods a game isn't really all that much, however it is DOES help. In a tournament every single bit helps so you're going to shoot that. For normal rec play it's not worth it to me... depends on your financial situation.

simply play front, i use MAX 2-3pods + loader in a game and i even think i shoot a decent amount of paint. carry less pods, comunicate more, shoot when necessary ( you dont have to 12.5 ramp for 3minutes on a guy thats behind his bunker for exemple ) you are not playing any major event. or how some already may tought, play pump!

i play on two different field depend on while im with friend or by myself i usually play with premium play with 4 pods + hopper a day when i go through a case i usually have played around 5-6 games me being a fatty already tired by that time lol im starting to play semi since im in no tourney yet and still hitting people i learned that shooting conservative is sometimes better since when you go to a tourney and have the paint you already have good practice on low paint sutiations and know how to keep yourself from trying to overshoot without hitting anyone.

think of it this way, for every player your front guy shoots out, thats a kill for you. back players shouldnt be looking for kills, but looking for their front guy to stay alive. i find shooting small amounts of paint boring, im not happy unless i'm on the trigger. keep up the good work buddy

I go out with 4 pods and a full hopper everytime I play. No exceptions.

Better to have it and not need it, then to need it and not have it. Sometimes the most laid back games can turn into intense battles.

a good tip i learned for snap shooting, when you pop out only take one shot instead of three SAVES a lot of paint.

Dude, it's your finger on the trigger.
Only you can decide how much is enough, or when it's too much. (or not enough)
