What To Do When All Hell Breaks Loose

originally published in issue 2:1 of RECON Magazine

"Wow, they just mowed us down. There was nothing we could do. It was a slaughter." I wish I had a dollar for every time I have heard that statement or something similar coming from paint covered players in the neutral zone after a game. The truth of the matter is that yes they did mow you down but there is always something you can do. If you know the types of engagements that may occur on the paintball field while you are moving toward the opponent's base you will be able to overcome and dominate any situation.

Road Trip to Niagara Tactical Southern Ontario

One evening in May 2006 while traveling some 1200 miles from home on business, I decided to pay a visit to a local paintball field. Niagara Tactical Adventure was a short drive from where I was staying in Niagara Falls and the field, within sight of the QEW, approximately half way between Hamilton and Niagara Falls in southern Ontario Canada, seemed like the great place to shoot some paint. I parked the car donned my Tippmann jersey (I never leave home without it) and went inside to find someone to play with. Tim Smith the friendly owner of Niagara Tactical welcomed me like I was one of his regular players. We hit it off right away and I decided to have a chat before hitting the field.

Assaulting the Flag: Get the Flag and Win the Game, Every Time

It's the easiest part of a woodsball game, if it's done right
By Bruce 'Charon' Johnston

originally published in the May 2006 issue of Paintball Sports Magazine

"They had paint raining down on us from every direction. There was no way we could get anywhere near the flag."

Does that sound familiar? It is fun to run around in the woods shooting paint but capturing the flag is the name of the game. I constantly hear people complain about how hard it is to attack the other team's base and capture the flag. Assaulting the flag might very well be the easiest part of a woodsball game, if it's done right. Unfortunately too many players and teams go about the assaulting the flag all wrong.
