Super Paintball on Mineplex

General Strategies

  1. Revive your teammates: Throw your water bottles at dead teammates to revive them. Try to land the bottle between two or more close teammates to get multiple revives. Revives are worth 3 points each, better than kills.
  2. Keep moving. It is all to easy for someone to hit you from afar or sneak up with a shotgun if you are standing still.
  3. Stay hidden by crouching. This hides your nametag so opponents can't see you through walls.
  4. Join the blue team (Nether). In uneven matches, the extra player goes to Nether.
  5. Keep an eye on the scoreboard. If your team starts to lose a lot of players, start looking for and reviving painted teammates.

Weapon Strategies

Rifle

This is the first weapon you will have, and in several circumstances is the best. It can hit from long distances and kill in two shots. It will not let you run fast, however.

Rifle works best in maps with wide open spaces like Friendly Forest, Eruption, and Triple Tower.

Shotgun

This is frequently the best weapon. It can kill up to two opponents in a single firing if you are close in. It also lets you run the fastest.

Shotgun works best in maps with lots of narrow corridors like 1984, Painted Gardens, and Cookie Town.

Machine Gun

While this weapon fires quickly, it takes 4 hits to kill and slows you to a crawl. It is rarely a good choice. Not worth the 5000 gems.

Map Strategies

Friendly Forest

Pick Rifle. Go all the way to the left or right, then shoot from far away as the opponents advance.

Eruption

Pick Rifle. Go all the way to the left or right, then shoot from far away as the opponents advance. Keep an eye out for opponents coming up the middle tunnel -- don't let them surprise you!

Cookie Town

Pick Shotgun. Go all the way up one side, preferably with teammates. Then try to sneak up on them from the side. Don't go all the way to their base, they may be waiting.

1984

Pick Shotgun. Go all the way up one side in the trench. Try to sneak all the way to their base. Then come from behind and take them out by surprise.

Triple Towers

Pick Rifle. Go to the left or right door of your base. Snipe them from afar as they come out of their base or stand on the stairs.
