Using Paintball Sniper for Cover Fire for Your Team

"Flea, you've got the Zippo."

How can a sniper use cover fire for his team? What’s the best way to do this?

There are two dynamic ways that a paintball sniper can use cover fire in game play.

  1. Covering an advance or retreat of team players. Using his camouflage and stealth, the paintball sniper stays hidden, possibly remaining behind enemy lines (ideally with a second sniper) to selectively eliminate, confuse, mislead or distract small forces of opposition. This has to be done judiciously. Engaging a force of more than 2 players (solo) or 3 players (two snipers) is a recipe for getting painted.
  2. Cover fire is a critical tactic of working in a two man element. In training, practice shooting and leap frogging each other in and out of situations. Sniper One covers an area with his marker while Sniper Two moves. Sniper Two moves three seconds only between areas of cover and then takes up position to cover Sniper One’s movement in the same fashion.
