Tip #25: Aim Small Miss Small

Dec 27, 2012 by Jason "FK" Edwards in Tip of the Week | Comments


There will be many times when you’re faced with an opponent that will just not get you a chance to shoot him/her. They may be sitting inside and just don’t want to battle, but your next bump may be to risky, knowing they could just so happen come out and make that easy shot as you move.

This is normally happen when your team is making an aggressive move down the other side, and the opponent in front of you is living behind his gun, while his teammate across field is holding the lane between you and your next move.

You may be able to catch this player slipping and see the smallest of all things down wire. Whether its his head gear flapping in the wind, a loose pack strap dangling on the edge of the bunker, or an oversized jersey just giving you a glimpse. Knowing your paint is not going to break on any of those items, you need to find a harder target.

Step out just enough to not be visible to the cross field guy, look for the hardest item you can see the quickest. EXP: A full pod, plastic mask strap, butt end of the tank, and lastly the shoe. When you see this target, do not rip a stream at it. Pick the smallest part of that target and shoot a smooth burst into it. By aiming for the center line of the plastic clip on the mask strap, by missing, you may still hit the back of his head, ear piece, strap, or even better top or bottom of the clip!
