When playing the snake how do you know when to move up?

when I play the snake I'm not quite sure when to move up, and when I do find the balls to move up i get shot?


(Not afraid of getting hit but getting out)

dude what i would do is just have your back guy scream his fucking head off and tell positions and you yell right back to get covver and just bump up as far as you can when you know that no one is cover you just bump up as far as you can

Just make sure you trust your back player, talk to him, and make sure he is watching your tape. Make sure he has corner in, and if there is a guy in their snake, get him in and bump as fast as you can. You will learn as time goes on, just don't be afraid, everyone has to learn.

wat i do is snap out and make the snake corner back were he belongs and bump

when he is not comeing out of his snake side then bump

it can be eneything poding up or switching his hands if you have no one on your tape get out of the snake and run the tape shoot some people

I'm not necassarly the greatest snake player but one hting I find helps, is feel the bunker and listen to where the paint is hitting and flying by, if your ears are sharp, you can pinpoint whoever is shooting at you based on the zip of the ball past your bunker

I kind of hop out the side, then if i notice shirt, clothing in general, i will come over the top. The snake players arent normally watching tape due too thats the back players job.

What I do is let my support man in the can behind me tell me whether or not it alright to move up or not. If he's gotten shot or something, I keep popping my head out the side really quick to know when to move up.

It isnt all your responsibly. You need someone on your tape to tell you whats up. But at the same time, when you think you can move up, just make a quick move into the next notch of the snake.

Your back player will tell you when to move up. Assuming he knows what he's doing, if not just look cross field and see if you can take anyone out from the angle you have.

i bump up as fast as possible. some games i get right to s2 but if you get stuck at s1 get you mid player to look inside for you whose looking at you. if you have your tape man you could wait for him to throw down a lane on the outside and if your looking to bump you should look outside and right after their snake player goes back into the bunker then bump but ret right back in. just look for you chance and stay tight
