So... what is everyones personal preference off the break?

Do you run and gun, Stand there and lane, Run like a wacko hoping not to get hit, flail your arms around running and wipe anything that comes at you?

I play woodsball so usually to far apart to do anything but run off the break. But when we have few people and play smaller areas I usually run as far up as I can.

I generally like to book it to my bunker. There's not much use in me running and gunning when I'm trying to get as far up with a good angle as possible.

I play a lot of corners, home, and stand ups, so I either lane, then move, or run and gun to my bunker.

I was always snake corner, my favorite spot on the field.

Run and gun off the break dive and fill later.

Well since I haven't replied.

I try and run while Crying, holding my gun with 1 hand shooting blind at anything and covering my face with my other hand. It's worked since day 1.

One thing I like to do (this is in rec-ball, not tournament level play, don't try this there) is if I'm taking snake is move to a spot where I can see where everyone's going from behind cover, then once everyone is just getting comfy in their bunkers, run like a crazy bastard for the snake. Not only can it keep you from being hit, but it gets you knowledge of where the opposite team has started off, if you have a green light down the snake side, but if done right, the other team actually won't see anyone jump into the snake, takes some finesse to get right but damn its fun.

First After Mike!

what did I tell about doing that?

Stop worrying about how you look, and start worrying about how you play. Get out on the field and play paintball the best you can, not stand at home in front of a mirror trying to figure out if your jersey matches your eyes.

I normally get posed to run like hell off of break. Gun pointed back, 3 point position with my ass so high I look like a porn star. Then, as soon as the buzzer goes off, I lunge about 2 feet ahead of me, fall on my face and cry until the game is over.
This method helps me look agg in pictures, while saving paint

I kinda play it by ear. Who am I playing against, layout of the field, how tired I am, what am I shooting that game.

Mostly I play pump so I tend to hold my fire and move up till I know I Going to hit what I am aiming at. Avoiding gun fights when I can. But to be honest snap shooting battles even though I have a pump in hand is soo much fun.

That being said when I get back to playing after my injuries. I most likely will be taking up a back position of the break and long balling with my A5 flatline or apex2 OR my RT ULE Mag with Apex2 as simply put running won't be happening for a while.

I'm not sure anyone should ever have an "off the break style." Some positions require laning, some require running and gunning, while others require that you just get into your bunker safely.
So really, you should be doing all of them. Whatever the play/situation calls for.

The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

unless you are running snake or D1 off break, ALWAYS run and gun.
you aren't much slower running and gunning, so if there's a chance you're going to get shot running to your bunker anyways, at least put paint back at them while you do it.

if you have 5 guys on the field, 4 guns minimum should be up on break. preferably all 5.

depends on what position i'm gonna be playin that game. If i'm mid or back, i hang back and lane, not moving up much until the snake man is there or diving, ...if i'm playing snake i take off on a dead sprint.

Depends on what I'm using.
If I have a mech or an electro, I'll be running and gunning since I'm using a gun capable of doing so.
If I have a pump, I'm sprinting my ass off. Even if I'm using an AT that's capable of firing quick enough to do so, I feel that it's just not how one should play pump. If you want to put a lot of paint down the field quickly, just use a semi.

I'll never just hang back and lane as I simply despise that concept.

laning is also critical for your front players. Locking your opponent into a less favorable spot or making them wrap to a bad side so your snake or dorrito player can get easy kills can make a world of difference.

Superman into the snake or supercool hipglide to Dorito 2. I'm hyper-aggressive when I play, so I normally go really far up off break. I tend not to lane often, unless I'm going to Dorito or back corner.
Superman into home.
Once I did a pretty sexy left/right switching hands straight through the center off break. I saw Houston Heat do it in Chicago (I think?), and I was like: Challenge accepted.
But it was against a D4 team that just started during a scrimmage, so it wasn't all too important. I did, however, emit secks rayz for the entire day.

I almost ALWAYS run and gun off the break

First off, it gives me the running and gunning practice I desperately need. Second, it forces me to look upfield to see my opponents. Third, by looking up the field, I get a MUCH better idea of what exactly is going on, where they went, and what their breakout was.

Running with your face down to a bunker is the fastest way to get shot out, because you have no clue where the other team is! So you spend the first 30 second trying to find a target

Especially in practice, even if I'm the front player, I ALWAYS run and gun to my bunker.
