Types of Bunkers and How to Play Them

Okay, so there are TONS of different bunkers. The key bunkers that I will be covering will be sup-airball type bunkers. They come in many shapes and sizes, have different purposes, and have many different names.
I will be covering the most general ones.
I would like to thank www.supairball.com for the pictures, and www.webdogradio.us for the video. Some ideas are taken from their website(s), the rest is by me.

General Layout
Okay, so most fields have a variety of bunkers in them. Your general major fields will look simalar to this one(taken from 2004 NPPL HB):


Each bunker on that field was layed down for key positions and strategy. Officials would never just place bunkers on a field and let teams play. That is the wrong way.
Each bunker on that field holds a key to winning.
Now you see the bunkers. Look at them. There are so many types!

Types of bunkers(Airball)
First off, I would like to get this covered:
Every field has an unusual looking bunker that consists of many different bunkers put together. As the one shown above, at the bottom center 50, there is a strange looking bunker. There is no particular name for these types of bunkers, so when you are with your team walking the field, make names for them!

The Cylinder

Also known as the Beer Can and the stand-up, the cylinder is a basic bunker seen on almost(if not all) every field. Usually placed near the back for back players to play, they are extremely challenging to play due to the lack of area to hide behind and cover from the sides(flanks).They are good for looking out of the side, and overlooking the whole field, so they are ideal for the back players to play.
Can also be layed on it's side, being called a "laydown".

The Brick

Known for its small shape. Also known as the small pillow, this bunker allows much protection due to its shape. It offers a small purpose, and is mainly seen at the very back, on the tape sides of the field. The bunker is good for shooting positions. You can shoot from both sides, and from on-top. If your being pounded with paint on one side, come over the top and snap shoot your opponent! And easy bunker to play.

The Dorito

Named for it's resemblence to the Dorito chip. Also known as the taco, the dorito can be a formitable bunker with a skilled player in it. Usually seen in the red-zone(Your 40 to opponents 40), the bunker offers a great deal of cover while on your knees, and a reasonable amount when standing up. If you really know how to play this bunker, usually the only way to get you out is to bunker you.

The Temple

A bunker normally seen either at the back near the break zone, or at the 30, this bunker is an extremely easy bunker to play. It is pretty much a cylinder bunker, but with corners for better protection. Some are small, some are extremely tall. The smaller ones can be used to shoot from over-the-top. Can easily be used to play very tight or very loose. Sometimes, they are laid on their side and used as a bunker ajdacent to other bunkers.

The Wing

Just recently added in 2004 to airball fields, this bunker is almost never used as a lone bunker. It is always used with another bunker to make unique bunkers. They make existing bunkers mor challenging to play. Just remember that.

The Half-Moon

Seen near the back of the field and near the red-zone, these bunkers provide formitable cover from forward angles. Should usually be used as secondary bunker, or used as a checkpoint bunker when bunker hopping. Using this bunker as a primary bunker is not always a good idea, but it can be a good bunker if covering the snake.

The Cone

Usually just an insert bunker for field designers to take up space, they can be used as a stop when bunkerhopping. Don't rely on these bunkers at all. They are only good bunkers when layed on their side. Thats. About. All.

The Snake

No introduction needed. The most well-known and deadliest bunkers in all of paintball. It allows you to crawl to your opponents side and get side angles on their front and mid-key players. Snake battles are also the hardest fought battles, too. Keep your snake players alive at almost all costs. They are important players. If you can sneak a snake player up to near the end of the snake, you've almost got the game. Skilled snake players are a must for teams. Good snake players a feared...

The Tombstone

Just think of this bunker as a much taller half-Moon.

Video
Tyger's video on bunkers. Thanks www.webdogradio.us for this video!

Closing
Anyone who has anything that they would like me to add, please feel free to PM me and I will look it over, maybe make a few adjustments, and I will include your name on a "thanks to" list.

I hope this helps anyone with these types of questions.

Thanks to:

Well, since I tend to be "sticky crazy", and since we just cleared up a few stickies. I will leave it up to you guys. Say 25 votes and it gets stickied?

It's your forum, I just try to keep it a lil sane.
