Miked’s Paintball CTF

Its a classic. How can you hate it? it rocks. Yet so many people stink at it. Heres some tips if you’ve never played Paintball CTF before

1. The flag is uber hard to get. Dont go it alone.

2.Wallshooting may not be fair, but it works wonders.

3. The river is the back door for 1 kill.

Lets go more in depth

The map is (And i bet you already know) shaped like a paintball field. Its a mirror from one side to the other, so the map is perfectly balanced. in the middle is a white area that gives points for standing on it. my suggestion: don’t try it. Theres no cover and gives points very slowly.

Next is..the field! Most of the field is composed of walls about 1 stud deep and about 10×14 or so. any wall 2 studs or less thick is wall-shootable. THere are some walls about 4 studs high, so you get little cover out of those. These small cover walls are only existant in the middle by..you guessed it! The white area!

On the edges of the map, theres a lot of componets. on each side of the map, there are mini-forts that are raised about 15 studs or so off the ground. these things are rarely used, and probably wont be used much in the future either. Behind those is the River, to be explained later. THe two teams sides are 2 castle, with a mini-mountain in ront and the flag behind.

The river!

The river is so important, it needs it own section. The river is that shiny brick behiund your castle. When you step on it..you go WHOOSH! and you get whisked away to the enemys side, and no one can see you! You can also leave the river early and..you end up mid field! Even better! and….(Heres a secret, pay attention) whenthe games start, a secret rocket launcher is spawned on the river!


Everyone has their own way of fighting. I suggest you model your ideals off of this.

The flag is worth 100 points. YOU WANT IT!!!!! But you cant do it alone. heres your options: Charge the flag from the front, behind, both, or just go on defence

From the front : You need about even players for this. Get your whole team to charge head on towards the other. You want to cover each other, so dont just go running in and not have your gun out! When you reach the mini-mountian in front, zoom out and creat a battle plan. if everyone is in the castle, get them shot. if they’re charging you, use it well. Either way, all your team needs to provide cover for the flag-grabber as he grabs the flag and runs back. When running back, weave alot thru walls and DONT STOP! Once you make it back, get your 100 points and party a little

From the back. Send about 2 guys the flank the front(to not make it obivious that everyone is going around) as the reast goes in back thru the river. Once your team makes it to the river, again, zoom out and see what everyone is doing. if theyre fighting the 2 guys, chharge in. If theyre heasing towards you, fight your way up. Go and grab that flag, and choose your way out. if you choose to take the river, be sure that your running, and be sure you got someone covering you!

Defensive: Just hide in your castle and shoot them. Nothing really to this


Well, thats it! I didnt touch on Gun styles because thats too much of a personal preferance to touch on. just practice with all and choose your favorite!
