Play Speedball Game
When you play speedball game, rules are already preset. Thus, in order to play speedball with the proper rules and regulations in mind, you'll need to read up on the guidelines first. Below, we've outlined some of the beginner, novice, and intermediate rules of speedball. Read up, because we're going deep into the art of speedball!
- Ready your equipment. Speedball is played on a field not too different from that of a normal paintball course. Your mask, weapon, and armor (if you have any) will be standard, but the obstacles on the field will more than likely be inflatable.
- Wait for the referee's count. In speedball, the referee will count down "3, 2, 1" and then shout "Go! Go! Go!". Sometimes, this may accompany a "ten seconds!" at the beginning of the chant. Keep your cool during this time.
- Take cover! When you play speedball, there will be a barage of rapid, random, and (sometimes) poorly-aimed initial fire from the opposing team. These original shots will be designed to take out any slow moving targets on your team. Run as fast as you can to your designated bunker, and avoid the temptation of stopping at the closest one.
- You're a sitting duck unless you move. Speedball requires you to move at all times. Granted, it's not in the rulebook, but a good shot to the stomach and you'll realize the important of movement in the game. Shout "cover me!" to your teammates prior to making a run for it.
- When you're out, you're out. Speedball works on the honors system a lot of times. Let's be real though, if you don't get out when shot you'll make your opponent really angry and next time everyone will know you are a cheater. Say goodbye to being invited to anymore speedball games.
- The ins and outs of speedball aren't that much different from normal paintball, or even woodsball. That doesn't mean it's not a separate game; it is. Yet, you should always focus on what you always have in mind with paintball: tag the opponents, and play fair. Enjoy the game, and "Go! Go! Go!"
