3. Try Not To OverShoot during the Paintball Game

The overshooting rule is really easy a simple. You can’t shoot any player over from standard limit that is mentioned in the games rules and regulations. You need only a single hit for doing a person out of the paintball game.

Even sometimes you have more hits than one on your opponent player this will happen when your opponent player doesn’t shout out loudly that he will out from the game. But in this case, you have some exceptions. But if he doesn’t say anything then you can shoot him more than one hit with the correct aim that doesn’t harm the opponent player till he calls himself out.

Try to fire only when you think you have got a target and you have a good aim on in for splatting a paintball on the opponent team player. Even you like to be a more trigger person but still keep in mind that you must shoot rationally and don’t fire all the paintball just at the beginning of the game.

4. Try To Maintain a Distance In Between Both Teams

To avoid any injuries both of the team have a specified distance between each other because if you don’t have more distance the paintball will have more speed which causes serious injury. There is a thin line between both teams that you can’t cross and away from that line. So that there maintain a proper distance between the player which help slow down the ball speed to avoid injury.
