I'm in between beginner and intermediate as a speedball player. So pumping is going to be tough.

Just got a blue psychoballistics super bolt, with i believe a hooptie pump kit, deadlywinds 14 inch fibur barrel, blue CP reg, and a ghetto on off. It is ridiculously quiet.

I was playing against some speed ballers and I was working on snapshooting. That one shot, where i pumped, waited for him to pop out, pulled the trigger, and got him in the face... it was like pure bliss. It was an indescribable feeling of only shooting 1 ball and getting him in the face. I'm having a lot of trouble aiming :*(. Are there any tricks to aiming?

Pump is tough!

Every gun is different. Eventually after you use it for a while your know where the ball is gonna hit by just looking down the side of the barrel. If you really want to improve your aiming you could just do like target practice or something.

Just play more. You get better over time if you stick with one gun.

My trick is to pull the trigger with my middle finger,and use my index finger to "point" at my target.It usually works,unless the gun has shitty accuracy.I use my sniper,and it works with that.And yes,pump is hard.It puts you at a disadvantage.And that is why I play pump ;)

if you want target shooting, chrono your gun and set up different targets at different ranges. don't shoot at the same target twice in a row, build instinct shooting

I split my vote, half for etekgirl's body, half for her mind, because I respect a woman's mind just as much as her cans.

I set up a target at 30, 50 and 75 feet and practice hitting each from kneeling, standing, laying down, behind an object. Put yourself in any type of cover your going to be in and you will find that the situations in real games begin to mimic your training and seem more natural. hope this helps :)
Pump is hawt.

Sniper a.k.a autococker with pump kit,if that is what you mean.And I know,all paintball guns have the same same accuracy.

She is talking about the "accuracy" statement.

Practice a lot. Spend some time at the chrono range and shoot face-sized targets (or smaller, as the saying goes, aim small, miss small). Then practice shooting them while snapping. Practice shooting just past or over objects to hit objects behind. Shoot as you snap in, try to make each shot a mini-post. Visualize your target and aim at it while you are still behind your bunker.
