all of those people have the same or less experience than me. My question is what is it that makes players with pump guns so good??
The same experience as in, they've been playing the same amount of time as you?
Putting yourself at a disadvantage teaches you some good fundamental skills in paintball. When to move, when to wait for a better shot, how to make the first shot count. Playing pump is like an XP booster for paintball.
I'll be the first to flat out say it. They are better than you op. Pumps are worse than electros in every way they are just fun. It's the player not the gun.
