Just a bit of a newb question...

Ok, so I went to a night game a the local range (Sudden Impact) and every game I got hit. I'm always tucked in nice and tight but they always get me on the mask. (Ok, I got hit twice on the arm, once just as I got into a bunker and another when I couldn't get tight becasue there were more than 5 behind one spool and I was the one in back X_X)Help...? How do I prevent getting hit?
Whatever happens to us as individuals,
some things never die, can never die so long as
we look into our hearts and look at the stars
and truly see... and remember.

1 - When the game starts, move to another bunker. I find that 90% of the time, you only want 1 person behind a bunker. Try running to one of the corners, or a bunker forward. Its hard to hit someone running, so you'll probably be ok.

2 - For getting hit in the back and stuff, as Slinger said, its situational awareness. You want to have a general idea where the other team is, so they can't surprise you. Again, moving to one side or the other of the field will help, since that cuts off 1 direction that you can be shot from.

If you are getting hit in the goggles all the time, it means that you are doing a decent enough job of keeping your body hidden, and that people are aiming for the only thing they can see - your face.

One thing to do is vary the hows and whens of when you look out and take a shot. If you always peek out around the right side of the bunker, someone that knows you are there will also know where to shoot. Also, move around a lot. If someone thinks you are behind a bunker when you aren't, that is a big plus for you. They will be concentrating on where you were, allowing you to flank.

1. When running to another bunker, run fast, and stay low.
2. If you're getting hit in the goggle snap shoot, if you already snap-shoot do it faster and don't watch your shots hit the opponent.
3. Don't pop out at the same point everytime unless you have to. If you are behind a low bunker surprise them by popping over the top, or on the other side of the bunker.
4. pop out at different times, if you pop out every 3 seconds you become predictable, mix it up.
5. practice, practice, practice, and realize even if you perfect this you will get hit, we all do.

-get to know and use "dives" when moving to bunkers
-when your snap shooting keep your elbow tucked in- use a mirror to -practice
-Keep you marker straight in front of you like its touching your nose and tilt your hopper inwards
-don't be predictable
-practice makes perfect
