bad idea, trees are usually very easy to shoot up into and offer little cover when being shot at. Another reason to stay out of them.....you could get shot and fall out, which wouldnt be pretty yo say the least

I set down a pod full of paintballs and hide in a nearby bush, or behind a tree or something, and as they come to pick up the pod, I start shooting at them. I usually hit them on the first shot..... it works good.

I just wanted to say a little something about grenades,

Many people dont like them, maybe the cost, and i have to admit im ot a huge fan of them either, but they have saved my butt many times. For example, i wass playin a 6 on 6 woods match with my buds. There is this area where theres a river which is dried up, and the bank of it is really tall (perfect place for some cover). well anyways on one side there is this big stack of logs which is right above the enbankment. my team got cought in a firefight with us shooting from behind the logs and them in the river bed. we couldernt get out cause they had snipers ready to peg our escape. to make a long story short, after about ten minutes we jus lobbed a little grendel down into theyre cover and bam!, we took 4 out of 6 of theyre team.

this may sound like clever or cowardly tactics, but i have did this only once. if you have no cover, make some. i did this my setting up my pod pack in a barely angled way just so it would stand up. i laid down in the prone position behind it and it worked great. of course dont just go in the middle of the field and do this. also, go where no one is expected. if there are hoops lit on fire leading to an area behind your opposition, go there. and when playing newbs... HAUL AS*!!!! Go Rambo and get as far up as you can.

I think the biggest thing about playing woodsball is just to adapt to the situation. You can know every possible tactic in the world, but if you don't know when to use it, or how to adjust it to fit your situation, you might as well not know it. Just learn to adapt to the situation.

On a historical note. All you guys talking about Rommel and how great he was and that if he was commander of the German forces they would have done better, that is completely wrong. Rommel doomed himself when he convienced Hitler not to attack Malta when he should have, which the British were using to cut off the shipping lanes. And everyone knows that Rommel's supply situation is what caused his defeat. Rommel couldn't see the bigger picture. He was a great tactician, but not a strategist, and therefore probably would not have done that a great a job as over all commander if such a thing existed in the German military.

Here are some tactics i use when playin'....
1. If u know the area, use it against your opponets!!
2. If u own any style of ghille or 3D camo suit, use IT to ur advantage.
3. If you think ur in an area were ur comfortable, dnt move! Dnt get up and walk somewere, because it will make noise and attract attention to u. Stay put and let the opponets come to u.
4. If theres an open or back way, use it! It will give u the art of suprise and the edge over the competition.

Garrett...It'd help if YOU actually used those tactics.

But anyways, I just do pretty much the same thing I do in speedball...Run up and shoot the crap out of people .

something i like to do:

if an opponent fires at you from kinda far away, put trees (etc) between you two and advance!

for instance, move to the left/right until there is a tree between you two, then move up to it. move left/right until there is another tree between you two and move up. repeat as necessary.

obviously this doesnt work if there is more than one opponent you have to worry about. you'd get flanked fast!

For night play:

Ghillie's are incredible camo at night. They are effective during the day, but at night they are nearly impossible to detect when used properly. This means you will need to take some of the local environmental cover, and integrate it into your suit.

Several months ago at a scenario game, a friend and I tried our ghillies for the first time. We had silently crept to within 20 feet of some opposing players and taken them by complete suprise. We continued along the wooded edge fo this huge open field with speedball bunkers in the very middle of it being defended by more of the opposing team.
The people putting on the game repeatedly fired flares over the field, and swept it with floodlights every few seconds. We would crawl on our bellies untill we heard a flare launch, then quickly cover our markers with our bodies and keep the lenses of our masks pointed down to avoid throwing a reflection. After a good half hour of crawling inbetween flares and spotlight sweeps, we were again within deadly range of our opposition. Again we took them by complete suprise and eliminated at least six before they broke and ran. Finally, as we were lying still in the grass deciding where to go next, we heard voices approaching us saying "hit... hit... hit...".
It was two eliminated player from the opposing team. They continued towards us and I was very afraid they were going to give our position away despite the fact that they were "dead" from a game standpoint. Just as these thoughts were going through my mind, one of the players foot brushed mine as he stepped over the pile of leaves that was me. They continued on for a few more yards when I heard one of the players exclaim, "Those were people back there!"
I learned a few things after that game. Ghillies can be very hot, you need a fan for your mask to reduce fogging. You want a lightweight marker with a small profile that you can crawl around comfortably with. Finally, trust your ability to remain nearly invisible when wearing a ghillie in suitable surroundings. The opposition will walk right up to you. If you carefully pick your shots, and use distractions (like throwing a stick to draw attention away from your position you can remain in one place. If you can't fool them into believing the shot came from elsewhere, move quickly, quietly and immediately after you shoot. Then be still again and wait. They likely will lose any concept of your position again, and in time another opportunity for a shot will present itself.

I go through the heaviest growth possible, while staying low to the ground, but still being able to make a sprint if need be. In a double elimination game, this next tactic works well. Go along the growth on a tape. Then, slowly make your way until you encounter reisistance. Shoot a few shots to get their attention and run away like they shot you and go towards the respawn area. Then, call out their position, and get back over there. This works best if you have a friend to distract them.

Lightbulb wookie's rec stragitys

where me and my dad, brother go paintball, we have large rocks to take cover. well my dad found a cave like thing and just sits. I like using this stratigy (sorry about the spelling). When my friend play's though, he barges in and go's crazy usually being the first one out.

The best, or the stratigy that works good for me is to stay low, watch where you step (or be quite), and dont fire as soon as you see some on. distact them throw a rock and distract them then move forward and make your move.

Snipers can be taken out by grenades or being sniped. so iff snipeing look for a place where the enemy couldn't see you and where it would be difficult to throw a grenade and get you. make sure you watch your back unless you have good cover. the last thing you want is to shot pointblank and letting the enemy walk up to you as a sniper.

If you are riding on an atv then you would have to be almost totally exposed and the opposing team would have a much easier shot at you than you would on them.

If your playing capture the flag, don't let the other team no where you are until you get closer to the flag. Also, Know where your teammates are.

Always have someone in command (good leadership skills required). Have them direct the flow of things and give out orders. If you're playing with at least 4 to a team, the commander should assign rank, flankers (the fastest and most stealthly), and spotters. Each player should also be assigned a direction of favor. With a team of four, each player should study North, East, West, or South with more concern.

Practice very simple hand signals (hold up, let's go, cover this position [here], cover me, get down). Smell the air, listen for fluttering birds, and breathe slowly.

Oh. And watch out for spider webs, such a pain.

I'm still a newbie, but where I play is an 80 acre parcel of land that is mostly man planted (in rows) pine forest that is very mature. Because of this it is all shaded and there isnt much large brush (4-7 feet tall) but there is plenty of ferns. Due to this fact Gillie suits wouldn't help much. So my tactic is to use the lines of trees as cover and stalk up on my target. What has seemed to work best for me is to stay low and use a 'move 5-10 steps, then take a knee and look/listen'
I also like to use the high ground as an advantage. just take a knee or go prone and fire on someone, when they figure it out retreat to the other side of the hill and take cover. watch for them to come over the hill (their silhouette will give them away) and place a shot in their chest.
-Another tactic if you dont mind taking the time to set it up is to make a pile of pine needles/leaves and then put yourself in it. works great for a one time sniper shot but once you are found out you better get your arse outa there fast.

My tips:

Use camoflague and concealment to your advantage.(Obvious)

Stay low and with a partner covering you, pretty much "leap frog" down the field. I did this against a fort and we bunkered 3 people and we were the only two left on our team (4 vs. 4), they had no idea where we were.

Don't make noise (I'm really good at stating the obvious)

Attack the flanks hard, this takes the opponent's attention off their middle.

Use the terrain, ridges and ditches make great trenchs, hill are great to shoot down from and really crappy to advance up. Just be sure not to expose yourself onto of the hill by standing straight up, always stay low.

Instead of going out and wearing a hot ghillie suit, a christian fish shaped branch, with twine tightly strung through to form a web and local brush and vegetation stuck in works very well in hiding you, especially in low light situations. (See www.norwich.edu/flc/photos/pages/Camoflague.htm, its in its beggining phase)

The best defense is an offense!!!
