Team Navarone was one of the early teams that gained notoriety as being a high level team. The tactic being referred to iirc is they would hold the guns high and angle them downward to use auto trigger on rock forward pumps.

I considered it on project number 2.

Thanks
1. That is what an auto-trigger does. The gun will either fire a paintball, dry fire, or chop then fire if you keep wailing away with an auto-trigger.

2. Yes.

Its pretty pointless unless you have a mouse in your pocket continuously feeding balls. Other than that i had a kid ask me if i shoot an auto trigger on my sniper i laughed...and said no (i dont) and he said wow dude that things fast for a pump.

Hah, I've done that before! Sometimes I stand on top of a bunker and angle the gun down over my head so I can AT with a SC nelson.

Sheridan SC auto triggers (rock back) are generally more useful for long range, since you are angling back in the first place. Nelson (rock forward) is best for run bys and bunkering moves.

actually Line SI was the first company to invent auto trigger thus only allowing their teams the unfair advantage of the use of superior fire power. It wasn't until the following year when someone allowed someone not so sponsored to look under the hood of their si that LineSI made the AT avaible to the masses.

I've attempted it a couple times on a SC Phantom. It works, barely, if you're shooting at a down angle. But otherwise pretty useless.

Not really with a SC marker the feed is horizontal so the initial benefit is gone in less than a few shots. However back in the day the tactic that was used was to have a few 3 or more guys AT to pin an opponent in place while 2 or more would take more accurate eliminating shots.

You will notice the "Navarone Advantage" not associated with the marker ceased to exist once the AT was released to the masses. This in turn marked the end of Navarone as a super power.

This opened the door to the likes of the original Ironmen where "Freight Training" became the new buzz word. Sure one can shoot a thousand balls a game nowadays and anyone can become competitive almost over night. But the true tactical genius's of the sport faded with the invention of speedball.

There just isnt anything like old school 15,10, or 7 man pump ball.
