My personal favorite trick: play with my Phantom. Simple as that.

Snap-shoot, manage to keep some heads down, and *every* day I play, someone decides they'll rush me when they see I'm the one guy at the field with a pump.

And that's when I enjoy my autotrigger.

I caught a few people back in the day with a dual bottle VM and both with on/offs. I would run out of air quite often of course, and when switching tanks everyone would move up. I love that.

Most of the time they hear firing from behind, they think you're on their team, and you can just move around and eliminate the remaining players at will while your players distract them. And be sure to yell out (incorrect) positions of your own players while you're at it.
You're using filtering in with the dead peeps? Something seems kinda evil about that.

The places I play, that would never work. If you're approaching us w/o your hand up or at least a barrel plug/condom in place, you'd get stitched.

I consider any form of dead man walking to be dishonorable and even cheating, I know there's some people who say there's legal ways to do it but IMO if you can't take somebody without finding a loophole you don't need to play. So no worries about that, I'm not evil in that kind of way .

I edited the original post for clarity, this is such a nice place and it really did freak me out that it could be interpreted that way. I certainly wouldn't want anyone to get the wrong idea.

What I was suggesting was just to use the confusion of the initial flurry of gunfire to mask your movements so that they don't focus on you running to the opposite side of the field. The reason I mentioned the players being shot out off the break is because if they still have 5 guys when you show up, they won't be fooled one bit by their sudden 6th man.

The places I play at, hand up or gun up means you're out whether you got hit or not. The ref will pull you for playing on if you do one of those things and keep playing. I like that rule, it keeps me from having to bonus ball people who walk through the base at night on their way to reinsertion.

Gotcha, gotcha! I C now.

About the hand thingy... exactly. It's the universal non-verbal paintball means of communicating that you're out.

Was board A5 with a 3lb tank with an on/off. I would always enjoy turning it off and having them charge me, then turn it on and just have a grand ole time.

I learned that trick when I first started playing with a vm68. I agree the look is priceless, as a bunch of people think they are going to bum rush you from accross an open field. First you hear, hey he's out of air lets get him. As they rush out into the open, you open up and then you tend to hear, Ow, crap, m-fer,ect.
